"Silence" A Free Verse Writing

It's when I go quiet that I need someone the most. How can anyone become a victim of me being a ghost? Bridges burn, windows shut, yeah, and doors close. So I close my eyes, shut my mouth and fold my hands in hopes. I don't claim to be a victim, no, a lot of this is my decision. I got myself here somehow, so it's a part of my living. I question the answers and disregard the provisions, disappear, go quiet then ask people to be forgiven. Yeah. I'm sorry I don't post much. I'm sorry I don't respond enough. I'm sorry that when my life gets tough I go quiet feeling crushed and quit giving out the love that I thought was enough for all of us. I'm sorry if the glue breaks. I'm sorry if I seem fake. I'm sorry for the mistakes that I make that got me acting this way most of these days. I didn't know that silence could be offensive. I get that life is tough, but mine gets aggressive. I'm not saying that it's worse than yours just listen to the message. I don't want to make it harder for anyone when life series out lessons. So take a step back inhale and think. When's the last time you forgot to breathe? This isn't about the views from society. In fact that's what induces anxiety. There's a variety of decisions in the time time that were given, intoxicated or sobriety both are ways of living. The future comes in from each of your decisions and I'll be damned if mine impacts anything you've envisioned. Whoa. In all the things that do happen, it always takes two. Some have ulterior motives and different intentions others see straight through. And you never know until it happens what someone might do. Whether it's out of greed, love or just to find truth. Spend life together we don't know what moment's our last. And when times get down give out reasons for laughs. And if someone is having issues don't be afraid to ask. Because that silence may be for now, unless they've past....

I just want everyone to be happy and make the world a better place. I've got a heart full of love and a smile upon my face. No tears no fears live in God's grace. Be the light of hope when some one's in a dark place....

Let's be honest I ain't even successful. Talking about my problems all the time like life is so stressful. Honestly I think most of my problems are just mental. I hold on to too much I gotta just let go.

I wish you all healing and a positive journey, when life gets tough keep telling yourself you're worthy. No regrets keep moving forward, keep on learning. If I'm stronger than my problems then nothing can hurt me. Don't get locked inside your head and live in self resentment. Tomorrow's another day another chance that you can go get it. Self forgiveness is a self love like you really meant it. Mind your own business and you won't be so easily offended. Mental exhaustion can be a hideous thing. Some days you just want to do nothing but stay asleep. Feeling useless and tired like your whole body's fatigued. Along with the anxiety and your head is pummelling. Yeah it's a part of this demon that they call depression. But promise to love yourself through it, don't get locked in an obsession. Because no one knows what you're going through until it is mentioned. Write it down sing it out turn your curses into blessin's. There's honor in humility I will guarantee that. Make a way to pay it forward when you can't pay it back. Learn and forgive, let live, love and laugh. Life is more straight forward when your mind able to stay on track. I know life gets dim and times don't glow as bright. It's when we're in dark places that we find the fuel to ignite. Be a leader amongst the shadows you can provide the light. So that way instead of saying goodbye you'll be telling people goodnight.

About this poem

What started out as a rhythmic flow of words and kept linking together in the form of an ongoing song verse...this free verse writing that I have written just might one day evolve into becoming the lyrics of one.
