||once upon a time

long, long ago

I met a girl

who shook my world.

she taught me to dream;

to reach for the stars;

to take every chance

till the chances were ours.

she lived in the moment,

she danced in the rain,

she stood through the storms,

and grew through the pain.

I held her through heartache,

through tears and goodbyes,

through laughter and joy,

that lit up our skies.

she taught me to live,

to never regret,

and to love all the people

that I had met.

she taught me to create;

to work with a passion,

to live with a purpose,

and to always take action.

she never looked back

to dwell in her past;

she always looked foreword

and lived each day like her last.

she taught me of friendship

(the highs and the lows)

that love can be painful,

and that anger will show.

she taught me of forgiveness,

the beauty of love,

the art of second chances

that I’m not worthy of.

Once upon a time

long, long ago

I met a girl

who shook my world.

she taught me to stand,

to thrive on my own,

to pursue all my dreams,

and to reap what I’d sown.

she taught me about everything

and about letting go

because she had so much more to give

and a new life to grow||

11/18/16 {the race}

Hey y’all! I feel so bad for starting off every blog post ever with “I know it’s been a while since I last posted…” Literally every single time. I’ll work on it! Okay so this piece I’m sharing with y’all is somewhat of a spoken word that I wrote a little over a year ago. I’ve been going through my old journals and this one really stood out to me so I thought I’d share it. I hope you enjoy it!

 

Living life is a lot like running a race. When that pistol fires, you do your God-given best to bolt past that starting line and fight for the best position. You start off strong and you’re convinced that nothing could hold you back. You focus in on the finish line and in that instance, the thought of it consumes you until it becomes the only thing that matters. You may stumble or trip, but you grit your teeth and get back up every single time until you surpass your opponents one by one. You have the choice to keep up an easy pace and finish second, but deep down in your heart you know that you weren’t created to settle for good enough when you can fight through and achieve greatness. That opponent may push you so hard until your throat burns like fire, your legs ache in pain, and the sweat pouring down your face burns your eyes until you feel like giving up but that’s when you prove your doubters wrong. That’s when you stop settling and start achieving. When you feel like you’ve given everything in you that you  can physically give,  you reach deep down in your bones and remember your motivation.  You remember your purpose. You remember why you’re here in this race, and who you’re running it for. You push through everyone who ever doubted you, who ever told you you can’t, who ever gave up on you, and you push through faster than you’ve ever run before in your life. And with everything in you, you give it all the last bit of strength you have and finish that race, knowing that you gave it your all, and you didn’t give up. 

 

God bless y’all! ❤

Warmth

Warmth

||The sun hid away

Leaving me cold and afraid.

I cried and I begged,

But it refused to stay.

 

I relied on its’ touch;

Its’ dancing embrace,

But the draw was too much,

And my heart it erased.

 

I clung to your rays

For the last bit of light,

But you slipped from my grasp

Like a thief in the night.

 

I thought I was tough

I thought I was strong,

But the world had enough

Of me being wrong.

 

You led me to trust

In things I’d shut out,

But now I am crushed,

And filled with your doubt.

 

I wish I had time

To tell you my dreams.

To call you mine,

And to catch all your beams…

 

But the words never came

And my chance faded by

Till I was left with the pain

Of your loss in the sky.

 

I’m sorry if I hurt you;

I didn’t mean for this to start.

You appeared out of nowhere

And wound knots in my heart.

 

I didn’t know what I wanted

Or what I should do

Till it was too late

For us to shine through.

 

I learned a lot from your warmth

And even more from your loss

You lit up my life

And taught me love has a cost.||

 

AYYYYYYY!!! Two days in a row!! This one’s from a little while back, but I hope y’all enjoyed it 🙂 Also in case anyone’s interested…My Basketball team won regionals today and we’re going to State!!!

Okay that is all folks. GOD bless y’all and may His favor be present in your lives ❤

-Mei

 

Fully Alive

Vividly

||Dream with a fierceness

That scares the whole world

 

Love with a heart

That makes others soar

 

Cry tears of sadness,

Joy, and of pain

 

Laugh with a spark

That lights up the rain

 

Dance with your soul

And cling to emotion

 

Play with a passion

That displays your devotion

 

Work with a purpose

That inspires your dreams

 

Forgive with a grace

That always redeems

 

Create with a pride

That lifts up your spirit

 

Speak from your mind

To all who can hear it

 

Give all that you have;

One hundred percent

 

Don’t ever lose faith;

Give up or relent

 

This is your moment,

Your day, year, and time

 

To show the world what it looks like

To live fully alive||

 

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve last posted!! I really want to put out more of my writings, but I’ve been super busy with school and Basketball. Hopefully once the season winds down (*cough* once we win state), I’ll be able to put out more content  frequently! I know I have a bunch of poems and spoken words from my past journals that I’d like to share in the future so be looking out for those! Anyway…To those of you who have stuck around I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by and checking in. I really really appreciate it ❤

Okay friends that’s a wrap!! I hope you enjoyed todays’ poem 😉

Until next time God bless and live life well

For 2018:

Dear reader,

This is for you. This is for all the good times you laughed through, all the pain you cried through, and all the hard things you learned through. This is for your dreams…Your goals and aspirations. This is for everything you’ve ever wished for, and all you’ve ever accomplished. Here’s to you! This is for 2018…

“Do not worry about the small things going on in your life that may seem like big things in the moment. I’m with you through every step of the way and I will never leave your side. Don’t worry about your tomorrows, but instead, lean on the knowledge that I have a perfect plan for your future that goes beyond anything you could ever imagine. I know your every step before you take it and every word you say before you think it. Nothing you will do is unknown to me and as you rely on me, I will lead you in your life. Life can be hard and confusing at times, and the unknown can be scary but when you feel like the world’s closing in, just rest in the peace of my perfect love.

You are a thousand times enough and nothing you will do or have done will change my affections for you. You are perfect just the way I created you to be and you don’t ever have to feel like you need to change to please anyone. Do your very best in all that you put your hands to do, and when you feel like giving up, remember the root of your motivation and passion. Love even when it’s hard…Especially when it’s hard, because that’s what real true love looks like. Don’t give up on yourself, and be confident in the fact that you CAN do it even if the thought scares you.

You are capable of anything you set your mind and heart to do. Let your words be uplifting; used to build others up, and stand strong in your beliefs even when you find yourself standing alone. You are made for a purpose, and there are far more exciting experiences for you in 2018. I love you so much, and I can’t wait to see how far you grow in your wisdom and character as this year unfolds. As always, I am so proud of you, and who you’ve become, and I’ll be cheering you on right beside you through these months to come.”

As this year is coming to a close, I decided to take some time to reflect on this past year, and all the experiences, hardships, and fond memories that I have lived through. I’ve had lots of laughs, lots of late nights, a few tears, and much love from family and friends. I’m not quite sure what my goals were for 2017, but I know I’ve grown so much in this year, and that I have so much more to learn and so many more experiences and sights to see. New Years Resolutions are often regarded as an ever-occurring joke of things we wish could be, but deep down, we know won’t really happen. Sure, it might be hard, and even unlikely to hold yourself to something for an entire year, but if we don’t even try in the beginning, then we’ve already been defeated. I know that sounds like overkill, but the truth of the matter is that that mindset can work its way into our everyday life, and I for one don’t want to give up before I even try.

SO! Sort of a bunny trail from where I was originally trying to go, but to get back on track…I asked God what He saw for 2018, and I wrote down what I felt in my heart (above). I wasn’t planning on posting it here, but I decided to share it with all of y’all, because who knows?! If I needed to hear this, what are the chances that someone else might too… Right? Okay sorry for the rambling! This is to us! You may not have had the greatest year, or you might’ve had a fantastic 2017, but regardless…You can make 2018 anything you want it to be. It’s up to you. Sure, circumstances may get in the way, but in the end, you are the deciding factor on whether or not you will give up or get back up! Sounds clichéd, but I’ve found that the most obvious things turn out to be as close to the truth as it gets😉

May y’all have a blessed 2018 ❤️

Love,

Mei

 

If I Fall

eaac53f1e973a524b8df50bdec1f57fa

||Save me please,
anyone
From this disease
I can’t outrun.

Take my hand
Don’t let me fall
Until I’m firm
And standing tall.

I’m so afraid,
And I don’t know why
This world has
Put you in my life.

You’re on my mind,
You’ve stole my calm,
And I fear you’ll play me
Like a pawn.

I can’t control it;
Though I’ve tried,
But you’ve captured me
In just one stride.

I knew this would happen
I knew this would come.
I thought I could fight
When you’ve  already won

You have a part of me
Of a most priceless kind,
Because you stole it from me
When I was helpless and blind.

Please, won’t you stop?
You’ve confused me once more.
I know they say jump,
But I’m afraid I won’t soar.

So please if I fall,
Will you not let me break?
Because I know I can’t handle
Another heart ache.||

 

Well friends that’s a wrap!! I hope you enjoyed today’s poem 😀

Until next time God bless…And live life well

The Sea 

71020ee5ae6f0d30e186250cb8674e59

||she was as endless as the sea.

her dreams stretched for miles,

and her love grew deep.

the moon she reflects, and the stars she adores,

and though they refused her,

she came back for the shore.

she poured her love and her soul into their heart,

but when the tide pulled her under

it tore her apart.

broken and blinded by the salty waves,

she reached out desperately

for the love that saves.

but no one could hear or respond when she cried,

and she was left with nothing

but the love they denied.||

Well that’s a wrap my friends! I hope you enjoyed today’s poem!

So until next time…God bless and live life well  ❤️

The Thief

691f41844c573063777eca9cf964cd90--black-white-photography-monochrome-photography

||Goodbye is on my lips once more,
And once again, my heart has torn.
It never stops; an endless break
Till you return for this heart ache

Each time a piece is snatched away
Each time I never have a say
It never stops; it thirsts for more
Until I’m broken, beat, and sore

I thought my whole life that love…It was endless
I thought it would last, but it’s left me a mess
The truth it hurts, and I wish I’d known,
But I couldn’t resist when love was shown

It’s a beautiful lie; an endless mirage,
It comes back stronger like a deceitful  barrage
Please someone, won’t you hear my cries
Will you save me, and tell me it’ll be alright?

I’m tired of longing for those I can’t see
I’m wary from letting those hopes inside me
I know they’re fine, and that they won’t come back,
Because with a piece of my heart, they now know no lack

So Please, if you’re willing, heal my heart,
Because again and again you tear it apart.
Love, take thought when you let me fall…
Or at least have someone answer whenever I call.

Because inwardly there’s screaming
Inwardly there’s grief
I thought love was giving
When all it is is a thief||

Okay friends that’s a wrap 😛 I hope that you enjoyed todays poem 🙂

Until next time… God bless and live life well

In Everything

||take heart and

know that I

am good

 

through pain and

suffering I

am good

 

through loss and

triumph I

am good

 

through trials and

tribulations I

am good

 

through heartache and

confusion I

am good

 

through emptiness and

depression I

am good

 

through ridicule and

exclusion I

am good

 

through sorrow and

happiness I

am good

 

through weakness and

darkness I

am good

 

through tears and

loneliness I

through victories and

failures I

am good

 

In the world you

will have tribulations,

 but take heart and know

that I am good.

Take heart: to be courageous; to regain one’s courage

Hang in there guys! Life’s hard sometimes, and yeah I know it’s easier to look at circumstances and decide to let the bad things of life get to you, but maybe just maybe we just need to look beyond our problems and know that through the hard times, and through the worst of the struggles, we grow the very most and become the best us we can possibly be. We just have to regain our courage, and have faith that God truly is good, and that He loves us more than anything in existence ❤

 

Okay friends that’s a wrap 😛 I hope you enjoyed today’s post!

So until next time…God bless and live life well
