"Don't be afraid of death, be afraid of the unlived life."

"Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?"


She puts on a smile that could fool the whole world.
Knows how to pick herself up off of the floor.
Always seeking, never reaping what she really needs.
A light when it’s dark,
A helping hand from the start,
Outstretched arms of someone who cares.
Hoping to find what she desires,
She turns to him who proves a liar.
Forgetting her name until seeing her face.
Always making excuses for replying late.
Willing to take, and refusing to chase.
Her mind is at a race.
Why does the world always seem to tease her,
Taunt her,
Use her as a pawn in its deceptive games.
Maybe it’s time to run away from all that’s familiar.
Star someplace new.
Seek happiness elsewhere until it’s all consumed.
A break from the madness,
A change of place,
Bringing her back to where she can see her own face.
A stop to the madness,
A break from all time,
Somewhere the same sad song doesn’t intertwine.
Empty of heartbreaks, and mistakes
Regret, and shame
Beauty and pain.

These were just some thoughts that came to me as I was pondering current situations in my life and struggling to sequester a burning desire to be free.
