Hope is the only source of light when it all goes dark.
So i hold on to it as tight as i possibly can in moments like this.
So hard i fear i might break it – but its the only thing i have to get me through.
And -hopefully- get you through too.
Its true that a monsters favourite place to hide is inside of us – and we must shed the light within to see them – at all the dark places and spots and corridors in our minds.
Sometimes i confuse you with the monster that lives inside of you and likes to take over. Its been taking over more frequently and i’ve been recognizing you less and i’m so scared i’m gonna lose you to it. So i hold on to hope as i look away; maybe soon i’ll be able to face it and be more brave- or maybe you will be- cause i can’t fight your monster for you – its something only you can do – maybe one day you’ll fight it and win- but ill hold on to my shining ball of hope until then.

You taught me how to survive.
So I could teach them how to dream.
I looked up at the sky tonight and got to witness just how beautiful you are. glowing and full and powerful. the sky filled up with hues of pinks and blues and there; just you; bright and shining, and singing to our souls- always reminding us of the power we all hold. Reminding us that it’s okay to go through phases and shifts and changes. Showing us that anything is possible as you pull the ocean tides from the shore.
Always shining on the darkest nights- and helping us feel safe- and more brave- and calling to all our inner wolves- and revealing our inner strength.
Slippery slopes like: self- medicating to cope; or all the different ways you learn to escape. pretending to be- anything. Not using your voice when you know you should — Hiding – when you know your meant to be heard. Being comfortable – with what you don’t want and accepting it – never giving enough of a fuck to fight back. Pleasing everyone – before you please yourself. Thinking of everyone else’s thoughts. Trying so hard not to piss anyone off. Pissing yourself off instead. Not sharing your dreams. Getting too caught up in boring routines. Forgetting to step outside of yourself, every once in a while- or all the time. Holding on to hurtful things and people. Focusing too much on memories. Not enough on creating them. Not creating enough, period. Forgetting to be thankful – always always always forgetting to be thankful.
Don’t be surprised when you see me rise
From the destruction you caused
I’ve been dying and coming alive my entire life
Did you really think you were the one who’d be my demise?
I’m multifaceted; don’t put me in a box
Every time you label me – you tell me everything “i’m not”
don’t categorize me so i’m easy for you to understand –
I don’t exist for your certainty –
whatever box you put on me will break as I expand.
