On Friday She Writes

~ ~ ~
Something that I didn't know til later in my life.
I started wishing for it.
Needing it to quiet me to sleep.
I guess I knew what it was
only it was called something different.
The wiser I got,
the more the world taught me.
It was not real.
It was just for me.
The thoughts of what could be.
The moments I needed to be peaced.
The times I was wild with fear.
That is when I needed it most.
And, as time has gone on,
I do it every day.
It's a ritual for me.
It calms me.
It makes me get up and continue on.

I can so relate to that!!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
