*Message sent…*

A soft short ring,
A little light slowly blinking,
The screen flicks on,
The message in view.

You have always put everything aside,
Always helped,
Never asked for anything in return.

You gave up all your time to be there,
Never once did you reply with “I can’t”,
Or “I’m busy”,
Even though those were their replies whenever you’d ask.

But that’s enough…
You’ve spent enough time solving other people’s problems,
You’ve helped unravel their strings while watching yours get even more tangled.

It times you took a step back,
Paid attention to yourself,
And took some time off from being a human diary.

However you’re way too kind,
And just can’t help it.

As much as you try to take care of yourself,
As hard as you try to put yourself first.
Somehow it just doesn’t end up happening.

“Yes I’m free, how can I help?”
Sent.

Cup of coffee #1 (2017)

Oh my, oh my! It’s been so long since our last cup of coffee together but I’ve invited you over because I’ve missed our little chats and I think it’s time that we caught up. So…

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, I’d hug you so tight and tell you I’ve missed you and I’m sorry for disappearing for quite a while. Even though you probably haven’t realised but that’s okay because there’s so many amazing people who are constant and don’t disappear for so long.

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, I’d ask you how everything has been. Wow! The last time we spoke was in 2016! I sure hope 2017 has been looking good for you so far. If not, don’t worry just try to adapt and take each day as a new chance to make it better.

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, I’d sit back and listen because I’ve missed listening to all the details of your emotions and experiences. I’ll share your laughter and your tears because hey I know we haven’t met in so long but I’m always here for a friend in need.

What if the stars could speak?

Staring up at the beautiful midnight sky,

Lit up by the hundreds of shining stars,

A question continually crosses my mind…

What if the stars could speak?

 

Those lonely nights spent stuck within our own head would’ve been spent talking with those up overhead.

If the stars could speak,

They would whisper down and make sure it was clear,

“We will be there every step of the way shining in the midst of your darkness”

All the secrets, tears and laughter would be shared and they would reassure us,

“It was going to be okay”

They would listen and make sure they…

Shined brighter when darkness was creeping up closer,

And dimmed when it was returning to the shadows.

 

If the stars could speak..

They’d be our new trusted friend,

All the screaming thoughts that were trapped would’ve been said out loud to them while they heard from above,

They would advise us from a different perspective as they can see what we cannot,

If stars could speak,

We’d be awake every night speaking rather than crying in our sleep.

 

You see,

Although stars cannot speak,

They were there for us in the darkness,

They gave us light when we were stuck in the night,

Without them we would still be lost and afraid,

But they were there when no one else was.

 

Thank you stars,

We didn’t even have to wish,

For you to come to our help. ☺️

A step in the right direction

If you play it safe in life you’ve decided that you don’t want to grow anymore.

After hours of talking with a childhood friend, I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I opened up. Okay maybe it seemed like nothing, but those couple of words I said were a huge thing to me. I let someone see what I’ve been able to hide so well for so long.

Ofcourse because of my trust issues I started to over analyse everything once she left. Was she going to tell anyone? Was she judging me? But I’ve decided to put those thoughts aside because what’s done is done. And I realised I really hadn’t told her anything major but I don’t know it felt like a massive step.

Well anyways, we’ve both established that I’m one that plays it safe. Which ofcourse is the complete opposite of her, and she said something that had me thinking, I even found a quote that summarises what she was trying to say.

I have dreams, and goals, I have a passion and potential but I’m restricting myself from all of those things. So my next step is definitely going to be in the right direction. I’m going to strive to accomplish everything I ever dreamed of and imagined.

I’m not going to make a Prophecy but I’m going to make sure I’m remembered for all of my success.
