The sky was grey,
There was rain,
And then just like that,
All of sudden,
The sun came out.
Isn’t that something to shout about!
The sun came out and the sky turned blue,
A bright hue of blue.
The sun came out and improved they day.
The rain went away……
The sun came out, brightened the day and the pain went away…..
So if you’re sky is grey just hold on,
The sun will come out and the pain will go away but you have to wait,
You have to be patient.
The sun will come out and shine on you.
I’m on my knees and I feel completely empty,
My heart is speaking so I know that you can hear me.
You can hear me right?
I can’t produce any words physically and I just want out of this misery,
Just free me.
Free my mind and take over because I can’t do it by myself anymore,
I can’t carry the load,
I need help,
Just help me,
Help me, I know you can…….
They say you’re the man.
Well, you’re more than a man……………….
You’re greater than my circumstance so I will dance and praise you for the good and bad when I feel like I can and when I feel like I can’t.
I’m gonna hold onto you tight,
Tight with all my might and I will fight.
I don’t know what else to say………
Can you hear me?
My heart is crying,
I’m just begging you to help me.
I need you to rid me of the empty feeling,
You don’t what to do.
You’re so angry you don’t know what to do……..
You’re so frustrated that you don’t know what to do………..
You’re trying to get by,
Hope is your high,
You’re trying to get by but life keeps on slapping you in the face,
Punching you in the gut and kicking your butt.
You find yourself exhausted,
People tell you to smile but they don’t know,
They don’t know,
They don’t know,
They don’t know,
Or what you’re going through
You just want things to go right,
They have to go right……..
You can’t control everything but you try to.
You lie to yourself,
Your eyes are puffy from crying and your throat is sore from yelling and screaming.
Life has a stench and its smelly.
You don’t know what to do.
You just want things to go smoothly,
You feel like your life is like a horror movie.
You’re just so angry……….
Things start to look and then things start to fall apart…………………..again.
You look at your family and friends and you want their lives……..
You fight to hold back your envy,
You know, envy, your worst enemy.
You feel so low,
People want you to feel high but you’re so tired,
They tell you to trust him but its hard and just when you let your guard and talk to him,
Things fall apart again.
You want to someone to hear you,
Look at you,
Touch you and tell you that it’s going to be okay.
You have little faith,
You’re in pain,
Mental strain and its more than tiring.
You’re a PPP,
A professional people pleaser…………………..
You live your live your to please others for your validation and that is why you’re stagnant in your situation.
Yes, it is important to care for and about others but what about you?
Are you taking care of you?
Do you love you enough to know that?
Well show that?
Self-care is not selfish.
People will talk until the cows come home because that is human nature,
It is apart of our culture.
You will lose you on the quest to becoming someone else…..
Sometimes you need to do things for yourself and if some people don’t like then
Get a t-shirt that says that,
Shoot, I need one!
Fashion is like your own personal stereo,
It booms loud and it makes a statement,
Your existence is a statement.
You can’t spread your entire life worrying about someone else’s opinion about you.
At the end of the day, you have to do you regardless,
Do we like to stand out?
Do we truly embrace this idea or do we throw it out in the cold?
We want to blend in,
You want to,
I want to,
She wants to,
He wants to,
They want to,
We want to……
We tell each other to but do we really listen to each other?
Do we listen to ourselves?
Are we in tune or do we feel immune to it?
Standing out can be a blessing and curse,
It can make things better or worse,
Uh no that’s pessimistic………..
Every individual is meant to stand out,
Diversity is what the world is about.
Why do we want to shut it out?
Lock it away,
Keep it in a cage.
Why are we so enraged with the things we don’t know about?
Why because it makes us look vulnerable?
Vulnerability opens the door to curiosity and curiosity opens the door to acquiring knowledge which leads to prosperity and intellectual security.
Do not be afraid to stand out,
It increases your clout.
