And just for thought...
You got this, this you got whispers around my head
when in the weeds I fall
when anxiety starts to wrap around my neck.
Trying to convince me the wrongdoings of my good intentions,
lies woven into a quilt that never keeps me warm
but I get it, I got it.
Somehow in the tangles of my chaos I find comfort,
comfort because I know the steps to this dance
and how to swerve when I should sway,
knowing that kindness spreads like a wildfire when love is fed.
Warmth brightens this darkness that pecks
and I feel it but I can numb it, too.
My knees fall weak, feat crumble but the spine does not break.
This spirit spins around me but that wind holds me upright
when exhaustion starts to creep
when the fight feels like it is losing its meaning,
pushes me forward when I fall behind
but I won't break, I don't break.
A breeze, one small breeze brushes my cheek
and I am reminded of everyone I used to be
when my character is put into question
when my compassion is tarnished by someone's selfishness,
accepting who ever I am today is as brilliant as I ever was before,
affirmations that keep my soul humble,
whispering I got this, this I got...
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
