Here’s to 2017

You are here. In this very moment, you are alive. After all that you have been through this year, you are here. How does it feel? …Bittersweet? But it’s out with the old and in with the new. And this is to 2017. A year in which you will live your life like its golden. A year in which you will fall madly in love with yourself. A year in which you will samba to the beat of your own drum. A year in which you will laugh a little more and enjoy the little things. A year in which you will spread peace and happiness to those around you. A year in which you will believe in yourself a little bit more. A year in which you will kick ass. A year in which everything is possible. This is to your hopes, your dreams, and the endless possibilities. This is to 2017.

Inner Demons

This part of you isn’t accessible to others

Sometimes not even to yourself

Trying to claw your way through all the bullshit

It keeps pulling you back down

You can’t breathe, can’t see

Can’t reckon with what you’ve become

You’ve lost the way

Or maybe you never found the way

Or maybe the way lost you

It can’t be found at the moment

It’s buried so deep

So deep that perhaps it’s not ready to be found

Unpaved

I’m on my way

I’m right around the corner

Give me sometime

You know, you gotta consider the traffic

And road detours

And unforeseen accidents

But I’m on my way

Give me sometime

The road is blocked

Shit

I have to take the back road

But I’m on my way

Give me sometime

I’m getting there

Fuck

I just caught a flat

What do you do?

Guess I’ll wait

Wait for what?

What are you waiting for?

Nobody’s out here to help me

Let me do it myself

Nobody’s gonna do it for me

That’ll do for now

Just to get to where I’m going

Where am I going again?

Wherever I’m going

I’m on my way

Give me sometime

I’m right around the corner

Once You Realize How Far You’ve Come

You’ll start to realize how much you’ve grown. How much you’ve changed for the better. You’ll begin to realize your worth. And now that you look back on how you used to be – all the doubts and insecurities that consumed your mind day in and day out– you realize everything makes sense. It wasn’t time yet. There was no need to rush past all those insecurities and doubts because as of today, you are where you need to be. And you were where you needed to be those three years ago. And you will remember that you’ve come so far and only you will know how much you’ve grown. Nobody can tell you shit because only you know.

Time…Where The Hell Does It Go?

Time really does escape you.  Everything up to this point has been somewhat of a blur. Everything has led up to this very moment. And then this moment will slip away like the others. And then you’re left with the ultimate question “well…what the fuck happened?” Sometimes I want these moments to last a little longer, for them to never escape. I can’t understand it. I can’t grasp it…literally.
