Lately, I’ve been feeling like a wreck; but the strangest thing about it is, it doesn’t bother me anymore. I don’t mind that things are out of order or I don’t know what to do about certain situations, because I have learned something about life: Things change. They get worse and they get better.
The things I posses today are things that I once wished for. The situations I’ve overcome now, I once struggled with. The concepts I understand now, once baffled me to the highest degree. That tells me that everything I am facing now is temporary, a path – paving the way for things to come. In moments of misery, I remind myself, this too shall pass. It’s nothing. I got this.
And I embrace it. I embrace it all. I welcome change, discomfort, uncertainty, because in moments like these we grow, we transition, and we learn to value the good in our lives.
Today I am grateful to God for life I’ve been given, the past, present, and future. I’ve never been prouder to be who I am and more thankful for what I have. Through the good and bad I remember, this too shall pass.
darkness falls like fate
still i am unfraid
for i believe in hope
i believe in faith
i believe light conquers
As some of you may know from following my posts, I’ve been in a dark place lately. I won’t say I fell into one, because life is a rollercoaster filled with ups and downs. Each phase is only momentary and the wheel keeps spinning. Where am I going with this? Well, I recently wrote a poem called Never Alone. I usually don’t discuss the meaning of my poems or what inspired me to write them, but I wanted to this time.
If you haven’t read this piece the title speaks for itself. One of the lines reads “In darkness I may tread, but never alone”. I want to talk about it because the inspiration behind it is so different that what you may think. It’s not about anything or anyone. In fact, I wrote this piece I was feeling the exact opposite of the way I described. I was alone just thinking about my life when I realized, I was tired of being depressed. I was tired of feeling sorry for myself. I was tired of writing dumb rants about black holes and ghosts. I have nothing against dark pieces, (sometimes you need to release those feelings), but Lawd knows ive written my share.
So after this realization, I decided to muster up a little positivity. I barely thought before my pencil hit the paper and I began to imagine myself (or anyone else really) in a better place. It was entirely unrealistic, but I can honestly say after I wrote it I felt better. It didn’t fix anything, but it brought a little light to the darkness, like single star in the sky. So if you’re in a dark place today, I hope you are inspired to rise. Dont worry, eventually you will. Life is filled with seasons. There are seasons to to be happy and seasons to grieve, but sometimes you can lighten the process simply by picking yourself up.
Thank you all for following me and for your encouraging comments. ~Lady T
How you hold me
how you love me so
in darkness i may tread but never alone
what silent peace this is
what life you give
i may never understand it all
how you do what you do
i may never know
You’re beautiful, love
Brighter than a star
Dont let the voices tell you who you are
I know the darkness you feel inside
But it wont last forever
The sun will rise
The air you breathe in says you will survive
You are just beginning a beautiful life
