So many people are in these moments of trying to be a new version of themselves. Leaving the old behind. I like to call it evolving. If this is where you are in life…CONGRATULATIONS!!! I’m proud of your perseverance but this post is not for you. Although I am on a journey to a new and improved me, I am also working on rekindling some things within myself that I’ve lost that truly made me who I am. Those things that made me happy. Things that no matter what anyone would say I did it boldly and with pride because I loved every moment of it. It’s almost as if I’ve lost a friend that I loved and I’ve grown so far from that person. I sometimes hear her cry out for me asking “Do you remember me? Do you remember the times we’ve had together?” If you can understand where I’m coming from then I pose these questions to you. Do you remember that one thing that you loved to do? You know that one thing that everybody knew you for or that one thing that you enjoyed that was private to yourself? You haven’t done it a while but when you did it made you feel awesome. When you remember what those things are I challenge you to go ahead and take some time for yourself and just do it!! It’s that simple. Spend time with yourself or others that make you happy. Get to know yourself better and reflect on those moments. For me I loved singing, dancing, and writing. Anything to do with art and music is where you would find me!!!! I am challenging myself to never let anyone take my voice. To not be ashamed to move my body. To begin to put my thoughts down and write more. I’m a little nervous because I haven’t done this in a while but I am going to share my latest poem below. It may not be the best but in this UGLY world I have to live Unapologetically…lol! I hope you take the time to do something today and everyday after to get back to that amazing person and to get over your fear to share them with the world.
NOW KEEP IN MIND THAT I’M A ARTIST….AND I’M SENSITIVE ABOUT MY SH!T!!!!!!! LOL
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Enough is enough
Going through life with so much strain
Hoping that things will one day change
But I am TIRED
Tired of fighting
Filled with so much fear
I am so ready for NEW
Why is it so hard to Succeed?
I just want to fulfill the need
The need for more
But what is more?
And why is it so hard to figure out?
I know that my steps are ordained
But as I walk these Paths the results are always the Same
I just want to prosper
To finally one day feel accomplished
I must grab ahold of life
As it has spiraled Out of control
This can’t be it
This can’t be All there is
It is time for new beginnings
That WILL follow through
I proclaim that Enough is Enough
I manifest my new truth
