Just be you

Be who you are. Who you truly are, whatever that may be. Be the strong, fierce human that you were created to be. You are unlike anyone else on this earth, unique and one of a kind. A beautiful work of art. A type of magic that only foolish people can’t see. A dreamer with a soul that is bound to set the world on fire. A star in this dark world. A lover, a fighter, a caring and a perfectly imperfect being.

Live into your values. Find your truth, your REAL truth. We all know who we truly are deep down inside. Don’t be afraid to show the world who YOU are. Be strong and accept the battles that you’ve had to walk through just to be here today. Wear your scars with pride and shine like the beautiful diamond that you are. 

Whatever and whoever you are, down to your core, to the depths of your very being, be that. 

Just be that

Just be you

Who you are

I hope that when you look into the mirror, that you remind yourself of what you are and what you are not.

You are not the mistakes of your past, or the bad circumstances that have happened to you. You are not what society says you should be. You are not the opinion of others.

You are strength and courage. You are to be seen, to be heard  and to be respected. You are a special. You are the most beautiful soul on this earth. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Be confident in your own skin, be worthy, because you are. I SEE YOU.

Beautiful You

You are amazing. A beautiful human, every man and every woman. Though our souls may at times set in darkness, remember that it will always rise in light. A balance of the in between, soaking up both. That is what makes us human and as I say, perfectly imperfect. 

We all are a stunning mystery, and carry the weight of the world on our shoulders each and every single day. Trying to live up to expectations and what others say we need to be. Trying to find our place in this world, when all it wants to do is keep you in a box. 

This is your reminder of how beautiful you truly are. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Look more than what any mirror will show you. The surface is only a small part of who you truly are. It’s the truth in the depths of you that is what matters the most. You are a work of art, beautifully painted and not by accident. Every beautiful part of you was created with a purpose. 

You will only know who you truly are, when you learn who you are not. Be you. Be beautifully you. I see you.

We were once before

through space
and time
we are getting to know
each other
all over again
maybe I am remembering
who you are
I have know you before
though every smile
every laugh
every fiber of you
feels so familiar
I’ve loved you before
a thousand years ago
in another space
inside this sphere
in some other existence
there was you and I
we were once before

Poetry is everywhere

it’s in the way
my eyes
fall in love
with yours
each time
I see you
it’s the curve
of my smile
when I think
of you
it’s the touch
of my fingers
gently upon
your beautiful soul
it’s tucked away
in every star
for us
to wish upon
and in our dreams
that we hang
upon the moon
and read
to each other
as we drift away
with each
tick
tock
of the clock

The Abyss – A Collaboration

Thank you again Christopher for this incredible opportunity to write with you again. Looking forward to part 2! Please follow his blog at https://divingdeepwithchristopher.wordpress.com

she sits
in the darkness
of the night
alone
inside the obscurity
of her cold mind
beneath the cold surface
where her screams
are silent
where her dreams
are the inner voice
of violence
here there is no help
to fight the demons
who torture her
tormented soul
in the abyss
frozen in the
paralysis of fear
she weeps
a thousand tears
that no one can
hear
wishing to faintly
disappear
from hearing these
twisted words they
proclaim
as they replay
her tragic past
whispering the madness
into her ears
reminding her of
the unspoken tragedy
these diabolical
memories
locked tight inside
the confines
of her heart
longing to be forsaken
from this prison
but never meant
to escape
or so they say
to shine outside
into the
beaming light
