We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them. We say we love trees, yet we cut them down. And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved — Author Unknown

Time to Rise

Tired of the struggle
Tired of the fight
Completely lost faith in my ability to stay strong

Took so long
to finally get it right
And after three good years
I fell down and lost the fight

My energy, my motivation
Invisible to the naked eye
Telling myself, its all good
When deep down I know
its just a lie

The reality of this being my whole life
a burden bearing down
suffocating me
like I’m about to drown

I let myself go, and its so hard to bring me back
fell ten steps off track
now how the hell do I compete with that

Ever consuming daily battles
at war with my mind
cuz I know what I have to do
yet at the same time I have no clue

I need to wake UP!
This IS a life long journey
it’s time to light this fire
cuz it’s only me against myself
in my own tourney

Excuses have run dry
and it’s about time I rise
look dead into my own eyes
and realize
that this is MY LIFE
I will decide!

"There’s a point in your life when you get tired of fixing everything & trying to make everyone happy. When you finally decide to quit, it’s NOT giving up, its realizing you don’t need certain people and the BS they bring in to your life." ~Grey’s Anatomy (@thesinglewoman)
