With all her heart she prays
Filling cups with tears
Writing letters unknown
Spilling heartache on the pages
Of crystal white paper trees.
God listens carefully
Extracting knowledge and notes
Good intentions and quotes
Benign and malicious tones
Pondering: what to do next?
She saves her last breath
For a sigh set free
The weight of worlds shouldered
Teetering with a small breeze
And like that, the angels fall on their knees.
The dream of a good life
Is all to real
Because we heed the appeal
To take care of each other
Over trees and hills so lush
Her horizon kisses, with gentle touch
A sun that sets on past setbacks
And stars that guide her future track.
She never knew a love so pure
For herself, forevermore
Now she sets a focus clear
On brilliant places, far and near.
She’ll take her newfound promises —
And passionately notices
The strength within her, all along
Her horizon sets, self-love is strong.
Her heart sings
A brand new
For a change, I would like to write about several aspects of my life for which I am grateful. These are the people, places and things that bring me joy. I am not ashamed of who I am, what I value and what I want out of life. Let’s dive in.
The loves of my life. The people I admire. The champions in my absence. The unconditional supports. I am so grateful for my family.
Through thick and thin. Through good times and bad times. Through the roller coasters of life — the happy ones and the scary ones. Through bonds unbreakable. I am so grateful for my friends.
My Special Someone
You know who you are. I am so grateful for you babe.
In high times and low times. In cultural differences and in translated commonalities. I am so grateful for the places I have traveled.
The peanut butter to my jelly. The sand to my shore. The fluff monster to my muppet self. I am so grateful for my dog.
Hey, baby; we made it this far. I am so grateful for my life. I have no regrets and I am proud of my accomplishments, my character, my past, present and future.
For a change, I hope this grateful list is a testament to what I truly value in myself. I challenge you to try it out. You may be humbled and surprised by all the great reasons you have to feel thankful in this world. What are you grateful for?
