Happiness

Crying’s a weakness, she told me so

But I can’t help it when the thing I most aspire to be

Slips right through my hands

But David’s here, Whitney too

So many inspirations I could never meet

Though I know in my soul

They’ll be with me every step of the way (they always have been)

Never once have they let me down

They brought me my one aspiration

But what is happiness, truly?

True happiness cannot be wrapped

In pretty paper and bows

Nor can it be bought

I suppose it comes from deep within

Deep within your heart, mind, and soul

It’s only now I’m learning,

That it’s okay to be afraid

It’s okay to be sad

It’s okay to cry

It’s okay to be mad at the world

It’s okay to embrace your disabilities

It’s okay, because you are human

And there is not one human being

On the face of this Earth

That is perfect and saint-like

In fact, we’re all a bunch of sinners

But it’s the people who want to change, who want forgiveness

That go straight to heaven

I think I know what happiness to me is now

It’s my family

My animals

My friends

My teachers

The countless amount of people who are always kind to me

And most importantly,

It’s the love and respect I have for myself

No matter how many times I think negatively about myself,

No matter how many times I shame myself for my body,

No matter how many times I wish I was “normal”,

No matter how many times Life kicks me down,

No matter how sad I am,

At the end of the day, I realize just how amazingly unique I am

How blessed I am

That is happiness to me

Summer In Florida

Word count: 86

Warning: no warning!


I bid thee Florida’s hot days and hot nights

Cool treats and cool drinks unlike any other

When the sun sits high in the sky,

There are no worries about the future

Bask in the delightful warmth,

Go where the sand meets the cool ocean

Find joy and love in unlikely places

Music drifts wherever you go,

Dance until your soul is free

Summer is like no other here,

June, July, August, three months of warm fun

Nothing can beat summers in Florida!

Seriously, Whataya Want From Me?

I know I’m a Girl On Fire

But Pretty Hurts

I’m afraid You Lost Me

To Ziggy Stardust

So I Don’t Really Care about you

So say Good Morning Heartache

It’s Time for you to go

It’s not my fault so many people Love Me

I might be a player, but I’m not a Penny Lover

I guess it’s in my DNA

But The Closer I Get To You

I say your name Like A Prayer

I’ve fallen in love with the Liberian Girl

I hope she’ll be my Last First Kiss

As we throw Glitter In The Air

I can’t help but think of Cover Girl,

You Make My Heart flutter

I’ve got Nothin’ But Love

For Y’all

I would do anything to go to space with Major Tom

And swing by the Heartbreak Hotel

Because no one’s seen my Childhood

But then I heard the Mistletoe Jam,

And soon I was Running with the Night,

Because I’m Living for Love

I woke up Flawless,

And searched for The Original High,

I found that I had an Empire State of Mind

So I asked her to Stand By Me,

Because There’s No Mountain High Enough that could keep me away

The Mortician’s Daughter waited patiently

And listened to The Voice Within,

I Bet she wished I was there for her,

But I’m a History Maker,

And I Really Don’t Care

But she’s The Wind Beneath My Wings,

So, It’s Time

I promise I’ll Be There

I’ll treat you like a Masterpiece,

If you’ll have All Of Me

Because The Colors of The Wind,

Reflect in the Mirrors

I’ll love you Unconditionally,

I’ll be your Reflection,

I’ll Make You Believe in yourself

Because Once a December,

I had the Same Love

In space- because Space Is Cool!

Now I’m on my Own,

I’m truly a Classic,

So C’mon, C’mon

You know I’m your True Love,

If only You Knew

You’re the Only Girl in The World,

You are a Champion,

My Cherie Amour,

You’re my Guardian Angel,

But it Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing!

None of you know how much you mean to me,

And you probably never will,

But I thank you from the bottom of my heart,

For always being by my side.
