NaPoWriMo Day 25: Be Strong, My Friend

To my best friends ❤

You are beautiful

You are strong

You are smart

Don’t let these ignorant fools

Convince you otherwise

Crying does not make you weak

I know you’re in pain, but please hold on

You are courageous

Your smile is beautiful, and infectious

Some people don’t understand you,

But know that I do, and I will never judge you

Your friends adore you

And look up to you

Those who are jealous of you

Will try to deceive and hurt you

But know that they are pettily ignorant,

And do not deserve your attention

You think so badly about yourself,

And that makes me sad

You are priceless!

And please, stop apologizing

You’ve done nothing wrong,

I wish you could see

Just how amazing you are,

You are not annoying, or a bother

You are the bright sun that

Lights up the dark, dreary worlds

Of others

Don’t stop being yourself,

Because you are you

And it shouldn’t be any other way


NaPoWriMo Day 23: Chocolate


Hard to resist

Oh, how divine!

Can something be more perfect?

One piece is simply not enough

Life would be terribly dull without you, it’s so easy to get

Addicted to your luscious, smooth, texture,

Truly, this is the best form of therapy

Even though you can be detrimental to my health, I still love you!

NaPoWriMo Day 21: Dogs & Cats

Tailgatto’s fierce,

And has proven to be quite the hustler,

She’s really the cat’s meow!

Wade’s insatiable, he never stops playing,

His barking drives us up the wall,

But he’s just too cute to resist!

He’s really a girl’s best friend!

Krissy’s larger than life,

Literally and figuratively

She craves belly rubs kisses, and

She’s such a cuddle bug!

NaPoWriMo Day 20: Don’t Give Up

When it becomes too much,

And you give up on hope,

Remember the struggles you’ve been through

Remember the joy and comfort you find in your family and friends

Remember the reason why you’re sacrificing time, sleep, happiness…

Remember that you’ve come too far to give up now

It’s okay to take a breather,

To relax,

To unwind

Don’t bother your mind with the foolish chatter

Of mindless idiots who try to get in the way of your goal

You can do anything if you believe you can

Don’t give up on your dreams, you’ve worked too to get to this point. ❤

NaPoWriMo Day 19: Eshanie

Extraordinary, all I aspire to be is extraordinary

Silent, but observant – I know what’s going on

Had I succumbed to my wicked desires, all that would’ve come was more pain

Another betrayal, another person out of my life

Now more than ever, I must be strong, though I wonder

If it’s even worth it all

Even God can’t save you now

NaPoWriMo Day 18: Let It Go

Another day is gone

The room is dark, and I’m alone with my thoughts

I dream of the future, of having control,

Of an alternate life

My mother is healthy and happy again,

No longer does she have stressed-induced health problems

Happiness lives here now

No longer do I have to hide in the shadows,

No longer will I hold onto anger and sadness

No more insecurities

No more second-guessing myself

No more people taking advantage of me,

Mocking me,

Causing the worst pain imaginable

I dream of a future where my family is happy,

We’ll be free to go anywhere, anytime

We won’t be sick, or tired, or sad anymore

I pray with all my heart that day will soon come.
