The time has come to discuss purpose
Do we all have one when we’re born?
Do we create one?
“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.” ―Fyodor Dostoyevsky
I am going to say the first thing we should do in life is figure out who we are and with that comes our purpose.
Finding purpose is just coming to accept who you are.
And that is when you find the thing that worth living for.
Water gushes from my throat
down my chin
down my shirt
and slowly makes its way
to my toes
I’m drenched in water
A pigeon landed on my shoulder
with a leaf in its mouth
It waited til the earth shook
Then flew away
My life is just beginning now
it will never be the same
snuffed out with just a thought
not person could save her
or her body
or her works
dead and gone
the gift of being mortal
the gift of life
to gift your body into the hands of another
because there is no fight
there never was
pain is an act of life
death is the grand-finale
but there’s no going out with a bang
it will be far less extravagant than that
On Writing honest characters
She could climb right in the hot dish water
it’s been days since she’s relaxed in a bath
she soaks her hands just a second longer
a crawler wraps around her leg
brings her joy
brings her frustration
“just five more dishes”
the crawler lifts a pant leg
“ugh, I need to shave”
soaked hands finagle the pant leg back down
smells like lavender and lemon
tastes like salt and soap
and feels like waiting for a million tomorrows
I pray the heavens above and the pits of hell below come together to teach you how to respect women that won’t include harm to your own children. I pray every woman who finds you learns to respect themselves while they are with you leaving you alone to deal with your own disrespect until they put you in the grave. Or until you learn to respect women entirely
Let it be written let it be done 🤲
She found the jobs of her dreams
Life threw them on her side table
And she waded through her options as if this was always meant to be
She found her value
And made love to her dreams
Her gift’s not a curse
When she’s getting everything she needs
Let’s talk this out…
What do you need right now?
Sometimes in the moment you don’t know what you need. Sometimes it takes an entire conversation to figure it out. It’s going to take courage to talk it out. So not only is it important to find someone able to deliver, that someone should also be willing to sit through the conversation.
Either you’ll figure out what you need and get it which in turn helps you learn to give it
“Or [you’ll] realize the person you’re asking doesn’t have the capacity to deliver. Both are gifts.”
Good night WordPress world. Sleep well. (Unless you have to write, then you should be writing😉)
I choose emotionally unavailable men because I require a significant amount of solitude. But instead I should find an emotionally available man who also needs a significant amount of solitude. It looks so simple in writing.
I’ve reached a place in my life where I’m more full, more myself, and more humble than I’ve ever been. I feel so me. The self that loved with no expectations. The girl before her first heartbreak. It’s as if I’m getting a second chance at life and love and following my dreams. Life isn’t always so kind, so all I can do is hope it lasts and hope I can hang onto this as long as I can. Maybe life will be so kind, who knows? All I know, is I want to wake up, I want to sleep, and I get chills when I finally get to sit down and carve away at my craft. This is all so temporary, I had to write it down. I had leave proof. There is hope after allowing yourself to heal. There is life after an affair. Value isn’t lost because someone doesn’t appreciate it. And it’s ok to feel fuller and wiser and more yourself once you get through.
The days blend together like pancake mix
There’s lumps of sleep here and there
But in the end
I think my life would be tasty
Topped with syrup
