Dear Dad.... Thank you
Today is Father's Day and of course I could not let the day go by without saying thank you. Thank you for all you have done for me. You taught me to appreciate the people that love me and stand by by my side. You taught me how to stay strong during difficult times. You taught me that family consists of those who love me, not those who are related to me. You taught me that how to stay strong and make sure that I come out on top. The day you left me to start a new life, you taught me more than you will ever know. Happy Father's Day.
My mind is artwork, a masterpiece. It is that piece that you can't look away from. It is that piece you are unsure about. You don't quite get it but you want more. You aren't sure if you love it or hate it. There is so much confusion, but somehow there is clarity. There are colors everywhere, shapes and lines that don't have a home but come together to make something beautiful. My mind is that piece that you walk away from, but always come back to. It is insanity yet peace is present. It is organized chaos, created by my favorite artist.
Those Brown Eyes...
Those are the brown eyes that I look into after a long day and desire comfort;
the darkess pulls me in and wraps around me like a blanket.. now I'm okay.
Those are the brown eyes that I look into for reassurance when I am doubtful or afraid;
the darkness becomes my knight, ready to protect and serve.. now I'm okay.
Those are the brown eyes that I look into when I am fragile and weak;
the darkness removes my uncertainty and becomes my fortitude.. now I'm okay.
Those are the brown eyes that I look into when I yearn for the feeling of love;
the darkness guides me to where love lives and I belong .. now I'm okay.
Those are the brown eyes that say everything to me without saying a word.
To you, they are just a pair of dark brown eyes.... but to me, that darkness is my light.
Running after what I can’t catch.
I'm always chasing .... chasing what I can't catch.
I'm always running.... running a race I can't seem to win.
I chase you until I'm out of breath..I run until my body is limp from exhaustion.
I chase you when I can see you and when I can't.
I run after you until my legs are weak and my lungs burn like the fire I know you will provide.
I chase you like a dream because I know you will change my life forever.
The more I chase, the more difficult it is to catch you.
The faster I run, the further away I am from you.
Love...I love you, so why do you run away from me?
Love... I need you, so why do you make me chase you?
Love... I want you, please stop running from me.
Love... I miss you, I'll never stop chasing you.
I loved and I learned.
When I loved..I learned,
When in love you are alive.
When love dies....you do.
To whom it may concern...
To the love that awaits,
Thank you for loving me when I had trouble loving myself.
Thank you for showing me that love is real and worth the wait.
Before you came I was lost, I was alone, and I was hurt.
I felt broken and I just knew that I would grow old alone.
You had to pick up the pieces and put together a heart you did not break.
You had to deal with my distance and uncertainty.
You had to deal with my insecurities and inability to trust.
You saw the pain, you recognized the hurt, and you accepted the flaws.
You did what no other man has been able to do; accept me... truly accept me.
You showed me how to be brave when I was scared
You showed me the light when everything was dark
You became my other half while you focused on being my friend.
For all that you have done
For all that you will do
