||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 ||
