a gentle farewell||

||they don’t see

the pain you

cause me everyday.

 

they don’t hear

the words you use

to tear me down

 

over and over again

never stopping to

let me breathe.

 

they don’t feel

the fist clenched

in my gut

 

willing me to

finally snap

and shatter;

 

scattering the pieces

that kept me sane

and held together

 

all across the

endless void that

i’ve been confined to.

 

they don’t know

how draining it is

to love one-sided…

 

to hold onto the

edge with one hand

just so i can save you…

 

you hypocrite

you who thinks

you can do no wrong

 

while pushing me

down down down;

an endless descent.

 

they don’t understand

the empty words they

use to build you up.

 

the false praise

they pour over you

raising you higher

 

just so you can

simply tear me down

lower, and lower still||

 

Okay friends that’s a wrap 😛 Sorry this one’s a little heavy; there will be happier ones coming 🙂

So until next time…God bless and live life well

Unbreakable Words

 

Write. In my religion we’re taught that every living thing, every leaf, every bird, is only alive because it contains the secret word for life. That’s the only difference between us and a lump of clay. A word. Words are life, Liesel. -Max Vandenburg

 

Hi guys! It’s Mei 🙂

Today I have a poem for y’all that was previously shared on my blog about two years ago. I had forgotten all about this one, and I thought I’d “re-share” it with you in 2017! As you can see by the title, the poem is called “Unbreakable Words”, and was inspired by the 2013 film “The Book Thief”, which was based on the best selling  historical novel written by Mark Zusak in 2005. (You can find the original blog post here, for further insight on the poem)

||An ongoing story
Is what it creates
A creator in the making
The ease of mistakes

It forms your breath
Every intake and out
It hears every whisper
And the loudest of shouts

It provides the spark of your smile
And the joy of your eyes
It lays the dirt of the ground
And paints the blue in the skies

It moves with the beat of your heart
And your rhythmic hum
It swims in your mind
Like fire drowned in the sun

It makes up every sonnet
Every song ever played
It gives depths to all poems
And gives life to what’s made

It chances your heart
And brings you to tears
It fills you with peace
And feeds each of your fears

It’s the very root of confusion
It’s the fine lines of hate
It causes you to question
If it’s all up to fate

It provides the love for your soul
To finally find one another
It brushes the blush on your cheeks
And the touch of your lips against the other

It plays the songs of your passion
The tunes of your mind
It sets you apart greatly
It makes you one of a kind

It creates your anger
Your sadness and pain
It cloaks you in pride
Like a lion’s mane

It opens the eyes of the clouded
The lied to, the hated
It can seem like an error…
A phrase misstated

It sews us together
It frees all who are alone
It’s a chamber of life
To the things unknown

It gives life a meaning
And mends all the fractures
It forms you and I
And gives our lives chapters

Each syllable stated
Can cause our story to bend
But it won’t ever break
At least…Till the end||

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

So until next time…God bless and live life well 

Eternity of Goodbyes

||Have you ever felt pain this bad?

Almost like saying goodbye

To those you love

Over and over and over again

Every time feeling as though

Your heart is being torn in two

Just as it was beginning to heal.

Have you ever felt that?

I have, and it feels like an eternity…

Like it never ever stops. ||

The time we spend apart makes our “hello’s” the sweetest, but when the time is over, the “goodbyes” are always the hardest.

 Just a little reminder to enjoy the times we have together and to cherish the memories forever. 

Live Life Well❤️

||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 ❤

||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

-Live Life Well

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

Mei ❤

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

-Live Life Well

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

-Live Life Well

Mei
