Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau


there are days i think of standing. there are times that make me silent.
that stillness in the air breaks all of your silence but yet the trees are still.
you may be here or you may be there, but nothing can compare.
the stars are shining and the moon is rising, lay with me to bask in my memories.
sun is rising color returning there's nothing left to be said.
rivers running, leaves changing. this isn't me anymore.
what i was is no more but now this is something new to bare.
your silent wondering why i ask you not to cry, it's no mystery.
times have changed and so have i.
but there is one thing that keeps me here with you. not out of love. not out of misery.
the confidence i have is stronger than ever, and my battles are fought. the real reason I'm still here is because.
I'm still standing


The author's comments:
there are stories of fighting. of loving. of loss. or just about anything. this one isn't about just one of those things. its about everything. in life we have challenges. you may be forgotten, remembered, or criticized. but i the end the real choice should be made by you. and you will only know because your the one standing
