||They say time flies

That the world doesn’t stop

They say to enjoy it

But I completely forgot

 

I couldn’t be bothered

And I didn’t know

That this doesn’t go on

That there’s an end to the show

 

I guess I was busy

With my selfish ego

With my concerns and wants

To just “Let it go!”

 

I didn’t get it

And I didn’t want to

I wanted it over

Because I thought I knew

 

BETTER.

I thought I knew more

I thought I was greater

But now all I am is sore

 

I took it for granted

The joy that was brought

The laughs that we shared

And the times that we fought

 

I didn’t get it

It didn’t quite click

But now! Now I know!

That it all goes by…so quick

 

I wish I could turn it back

All the way to the start

To the very first day

My favorite part

 

I can see the sunlight

As it beamed in the windows

I remember being the nobody

That no one knows

 

I was scared to death

By all the unknown

But once I entered the change

I knew I was home

 

I didn’t know it then

About all the memories

About the love that would last

Through the stormiest seas

 

I promise to keep it

In the safe of my heart

To remind myself then

That I’m no longer one part

 

This world throws us struggles

And tries to break us down

But I know I will cherish…

I know I won’t drown

 

I’ll stay here forever

I won’t back away

The night only lasts so long

Until it’s swept by the day

 

I wouldn’t trade it for anything

I wouldn’t take it all back

Y’all are my family

And I hope you know that||

I hope y’all are having a great Sunday evening! Just remember that time flies, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy every last second of it! Make sure to appreciate all the friends in your life, and to love those who have become your family through the thick and the thin. Life’s an adventure so live life well ❤

Freshman Prom 2K17

 

Hi! It’s Mei 😀

Today was the last day of school, which meant it was also the last day of being a Freshman in high school. Honestly the “status” of being a fish didn’t bother me too much, but with the school year coming to a close, I’ve realized all of the great memories that I’ve made with all my classmates.

Throughout both semesters, we’ve had five kids drop out, and in a public school that’s whatever, but in a small private school, it’s lowkey a big change. I’ve enjoyed being with the ones who ended up leaving, but I realized how close the remaining few of us have become, and I’m really sad to see our good times come to a close. And YES I GET IT. Three months is no big deal, but it really is, especially considering that we spent every day with the same fifteen kids for hours each week.

Next week I’m sure I’ll be over it, but it’s all sort of settling in that time honestly flies by, and we have to be aware of that, and enjoy the good times a little more, and love the people in our lives a lot more, because you don’t realize how much they meant to you until you’re saying goodbye ❤ And lemme tell y’all I’m good at a few things, but  saying goodbye sure aint one of them, and that’s a fact I’ve learned throughout life.

Obviously I’m super relieved that it’s Summer, and I’m looking forward to the break and the pool parties(!), but I think it’s always good to have a little reminder to enjoy the people and things that we’re blessed to have around us, and to make sure they know how much you appreciate them ❤

Until next time! God bless and live life well

Re-Introduction

Hi! It’s Mei 😀

So with school coming to a close (thank the Lord!), I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to spend my Summer. Of course I’ll want to hang out with friends, and I’ve already begun to put together a book list(!), but I wanted to participate in something creative and engaging that would put away all procrastinating for at least a few minutes out of my days. So when my best friend Eden asked for my assistance in creating a blog of her own, I decided to give blogging “a go” again. The both of us will be blogging all through the Summer (or so…That’s our plan), and you can find her blog here! She will be posting about her life experiences, all the crazy things that happen in her life, (and trust me things can get a little crazy with her, because let’s be real…She’s friends with me =P ) and the ways God’s working through her life.

As for me…I really needed to think about where I wanted to take the direction of my own blog. As you all can see, I’ve changed the outside look of my blog, but I knew I wanted to change more than just its appearance. When I created it back in 2015, I was hoping to make myself an outlet to share my poetry, but after contemplating the purpose of my blog, I’ve decided to broaden the span of the content beyond poetry, to include a quote or two I may come across, a little life experience I’ve had, or even an inspirational or motivational discovery I’ve made in my own life. My goal is to brighten your day, and if one quote or random musing of mine can bless you…Then that’s enough for me if it’s enough for you 🙂 Of course I’ll still be posting my poems, because I know that’s the reason why 99.9% of you are following me, but I hope you all will enjoy the exciting new course we’ll be taking together!

So until next time…God bless and live life well

||when she was little

she dreamed of the world

in all of it’s beauty

in all of it’s splendor

it could do no wrong

but when she got older

her eyes opened

she saw the world

and with it, the pain

but as far as she could see

her heart grew further

and with it her love

grew once again

for the world

and it’s beauty ||

If no one were watching would you live the same way?

Would you live life on a whim and not regret what you say?

Would you dance to your own rhythm with the beat of your drum?

Would you quit being “perfect” and truly have fun?

Would you rise above their limitations and take back your motions?

Would you do what you enjoy, and give God full devotion?

Would you decide for yourself what’s right and what’s wrong?

Would you step outside the lines and sing your own song?

The world’s going to judge us no matter what we do…

So we might as well live life true through and through

You never realize how much it meant 

Until the time has passed 

You never knew how much you changed

Until you look back at last 

You never know how much you love them

Until they’re far away

You never miss them more than words

Until a rotten day 

You never realize the tears 

Until they’re pouring out 

You never regretted what you missed

Until you give in to doubt 

You never want to tell 

Until the final straw

You never want to mind

Until you come out raw 

You never meant for it to come out that way

Until the words have gone

You never wanted to take it back

Until their anger dawns 

You never knew they were plastic

Until their colors show 

You never knew how much it hurt

Until they always go 

You never wanted any of this to happen 

Until the change has come 

You never knew the hard times could save you 

Until your hope has won

The world isn’t over 

Even if what you don’t know can hurt you after all

But the beauty of love is that it conquers every flaw 

Every flaw that says you’re not good enough 

The lie that says be tough

You don’t have to be their perfect image

Or add on extra fluff 

Just live life one day at a time 

And engage in what you love 

Don’t be afraid to stand out 

Because you’re accepted by God above 

-Live Life Well

With time comes change

And loss and pain

When people fight

And point the blame

Friends move on

And life goes on

As time goes by

We shift the sky

The times we’ve had

The lives we’ve lived

The things we’ve said

And the smiles we’ve shared

Have all been set in history

Nothing can change what’s set in stone

But faced with an empty page

Love can still be shown

We are the difference the world needs

We lead the next generation

And plant time’s seeds

Now is the time to live our lives

To change the storms

And to paint the skies

My Palace of Dreams

my-palace-of-dreams

My Palace of Dreams

Someday you’ll see it

My Palace of Dreams

Where everything’s real

And stitched tight at the seams

The wind roars on past

And changes the hour

While life is preserved

And love is real power

Rain glistens like crystals

As the branches hold strong

The leaves color the sky

And the birds sing their song

The sun sets with its pinkish hue

While the youth serve the elder

And respect’s more than a cue

The embers fade into the dark of night

Like the big blue sky

Swallowing the tail of a kite

The young and the old gather as one

To protect one another

Until the rise of the sun

She won’t fit a mold

She creates

She is bold

She won’t recreate others

Or fake it to win

She expresses herself freely

And lives life on a whim

She is perfection

She is fearless

She is beauty

She is love

Vividly she lives

And wildly she pursues

None other like her

None other He’d choose

Swift to answer

She knows what to say

She knows what she needs

And she knows to obey

She’s got a dream and a drive

She will see things through

From it she will thrive

And to her destiny she’ll pursue

She doesn’t need to make sense

But her actions reassure

Her name is confidence

And for the Lord she’ll endure

rise

R I S E

When you’re at your weakest

That’s when to be your strongest

The final choice is yours

You can drop or you can soar

Courage overflows with every beat of your heart

You are not a coward

No…. You are set apart

Nothing can stop you from breaking the course

You were created to rise above

And to take the chains by force

You aren’t destined for failure

You’re called to great valor

So rise mighty warriors

And conjure all your fears

Defeat all their doubt

And stand above their jeers

They’re not who you live for

They haven’t hold on your life

Please don’t wallow in their pity

Or be held back by their strife

You are called to so much more

Your honor holds you high

So rise up might warrior

And truly live before you die
