Sunlight

FREE WRITING

I've learned the truth too late
Now he's left me with a heartache
Surviving on my own with the pain
Trying to walk through all the rain
Cause
After every storm, the sun comes up
Melts the feelings of when I've gone numb.
Looking in the future, I see myself grow
Letting all the hurt I've gained go
Cause
When I've hit rock bottom 
And wished I would have brought him
down with me
I will see the clarity of...

Future

FREE WRITING

We talk about the future as if we knew where it would be
Making choices like we had any guarantees.

Starting early with all this planning,
As if we had answers that were enchanting.

But we don’t,
We’re clueless as before,
Naive as we hope that our dreams will soar.

We’re winging it every day
creating mistakes along the way.

It’s like looking through a foggy window with dread.
It’s scary that we don’t know what lies ahead.

But we...

Todays

FREE WRITING

Sometimes I just can't deal with todays.
Even though, I know they aren't
The worse of the worse
No matter how hard I try,
They still hurt. 
But I always find a reason to stay
While there are so many that say to walk away.

During those sleepless nights in bed,
Going over all that I have said,
Worries and insecurities crash down
Making me feel like I'm gonna fall to the ground.
These whole emotions going to my...

Remember

FREE WRITING

Remember the times you bleed
From the open wounds that run down deep.
Remember the times you will cry
Long enough until your face turns dry.
From sadness to victorious, 
These are the moments that define us.
Because history is in the past 
And these events won’t ever last.  
Memorize the bumpy rollercoaster of your life
Even if it cuts you like a knife.
This is all for your sake,
No matter how long it’ll take.
Cause
The more you...

Lost at Sea

FREE WRITING

Sometimes I feel like I’m lost at sea
There’s nowhere to go and I cannot breathe
I’m sitting in a lifeboat with waves crashing down
There’s nothing around me except a lot of clouds

A storms approaching fast
I don’t know how much longer I can last 
Send me some help
Send me some hope
Show me the light when I cannot cope

When times get tough and I think I had enough
I’ll remember the newfound beliefs that have...
