Thoughts

You never
Loved
Me
The day
I realized
Our
Reflections
Can speak


I don’t
See what
You see
When you
Look at
Me
I see
More


You can’t
Break me I’ve been
Broken for a
While now
I just
Learned how
To use
The Glue


I’ve fallen
In love so many
Times only to find
I fell in love
With the idea
I’d been sitting
In my room
All that time


At the
End of
This trial
Like all
The rest
You will
Emerge
Victorious


Your
Smile
Can’t hide
Your
Tears
Believe
Me
I tried


I love you
I’ve always
Loved you
But I knew that
One day
The silence
Would tear
Us apart


Each day I write
Another page
One action after
The next
& when
My life ends
I hope I had
A good story
To tell


Some days are cold
Some days are dreary
Some days you don’t
Feel like moving
Negative thoughts
Fill your soul
On these days
Keep going
Still


If you can hear
My screams
When I am silent
Then we are
Meant to be


I said, I love you
You said, Who are you?
Then, I realized
I had spoken
Out loud


I saw your face
Held your hand
You disappeared
Suddenly
A dream
Or am I lost
In a
Fantasy


DON’T BACK DOWN


I have made
Mistakes
In the past
But I can’t let
That stop me
From doing the
Right thing
Now


VOTE.


Your life
Can change
When you
Change your
Attitude


It was always
What I couldn’t
Do How I always
Failed
Why I came up
Short
When would I
Fall again
Now
I’m standing
Here


The fog
Is thick
The sky
Covered
In haze
So why does
The ending
Seem so
Clearly
Beautiful


I believe
In you
But I can’t
Succeed
If I don’t
Believe
In myself


You don’t
Know
Who you
Are you
Don’t know
Who you
Will Become
Or you wouldn’t
Be so afraid


Lift me
Up
If You
Lift me up
No one
Can make
Me fall


I didn’t
Know
What I was
Capable of
Until
I tried


You can look
For peace
Everywhere
…but if it’s not
In your heart
You’ll never
Find it


Take the lead
Create the path
To make a
Difference


The Giants.

The Goliaths.

Will Fall.


I used to think
I was weak
I used to think
I was hopeless
I used to think
I was useless
I used to think
I was right.


If we use violence
To stop violence
When will the violence
Ever end
?


How do we protect
The people that we love
Lock them away from
The rest of the world
Hide them safely in
A protected area

No one can hurt them
Yet
If we did this
Then
We’d be hurting
Ourselves


What’s happening
How can the value of life
Seem so little
To so many
?


I was never part
Of the crowd
I was comfortable
On my own
I accepted myself
If no one else did
I learned to love me for me
I lied


I just want to be better
Live out my dreams
Live the life I want to live
Be the man I want to be
Forget yesterday
Embrace today
Reach for tomorrow
That is Very
(Inspired by Perry Ellis)


What if I fail
How much will it cost
How many obstacles are in the way
What will the challenges be
Do I have enough time
What will people say about me
Am I too shy
Will they like me
Am I good enough
Do I know enough
Should I study more
Is this going to work
What if I lose

Just do it
(Inspired by NIKE)


Love lost or simply imagined.


Don’t be afraid of the moment you were born for.
