Dear you

Dear you

Take a moment

To celebrate your wins

You’ve made it this far

Be proud of yourself

And your success

The goals you’ve crushed

This is your life…

You’re living it

Right here, in the now

And if you’re wondering

You’ve been heard

You’re not alone

Your feeling are valid

Even the earth is overwhelmed

at times

And drops a storm for 72 hours

Flooding

Just to wipe the slate clean

And start again

You’re not alone

Even stars burn out

They have to die

To be born again

These do not quietly fade away

The do not sit alone in the dark night

They must be heard

They must be seen

They shake the heavens

With a supernova

Giving birth to other stars

You

You matter

You have more atoms in your eye

Than all the stars in the known universe ….

Maybe this is why we feel so young

Maybe this is why

We feel so old ….

We’ve been here before

But this love

This life

This heart

The fire in your eyes

Has burned with the sun

You matter

This is what legacy’s are made of

These victories

I want to celebrate with you

I want to guard your dreams

Dear you

Keep moving forward

That’s how progress is made

Three steps forward

Two back

Overall

Progress

Flight

I try to tell myself

Being a people pleaser is not a virtue

Being present and feeling others emotions with them

Is not being flirtatious

It’s being present

And most of the time

It’s easier than feeling

This hundred pound weight

On my chest

Filling these lungs with water

Try to write in blood

I’ll tell you when I feel better

If I feel better

When will I ever feel anything

Anything

At all

Most of the time

I feel like

I don’t feel anything at all

Tear out this heart

Throw it all away

I can’t keep walking on

Pretending

Let’s just keep pretending we’re all ok

Ethan: Hey France! How was your day?

Francis: I took a nap, and ate breakfast, and then another nap…

Ethan: I slept in, and then you woke me up, to make sure I was going to work today…but it was my off day…

Francis: snacks dad. I have to have snacks.

Ethan: anyway, so I finished writing that story…

Francis: Oh my gosh, is there tacos at the end of this story? If not I’m going to have to …Oh man…look at the time…

Full moon fever

Photo origin unknown

They said

We could be tougher than the rest

We could survive the test

The hot and the heavy

The fluid

They didn’t know

The love starts, baby

In the morning

While the moon is still heavy

Waiting for a heart

Searching the stars

Baby

There’s a magic in the night

If you get it just right

We could make it

If you’re patient

We could make it alright

This life rips the seduction off your back

Let’s go find it tonight

It starts with good morning

And ends in our arms tonight

Love me now

Burn me down

It’s a full moon fever

It’s a river

It’s a storm

We’re just survivors of the norm
