One of the first poems I wrote. My husband talked me into posting it. It was literally just random thoughts.

Empty promises in my head
Whispered echoes from the dead
Life is never what you thought
But life is a gift, so waste it not
Your biggest blessing, you’re worst curse
Hold on tighter; it gets worse
Don’t shackle yourself with chains that bind
When the darkness starts to encompass your mind
So get ready for pain, and heartache, and hurt
Wait for the sweat, the blood, and the dirt
Stand on your own on shaken ground
And you’ll never believe the courage you’ve found
Step out of your boundaries and don’t wipe your tears
Defy your own mind and admit your fears
Push your limits the best you know
Leave your comfort zone and strength will grow
The world can be as big as you ever want it to be
So leave your small town; there’s too much to see
You can live in happiness and with passion
If, when things go wrong, you learn to take action
The only way to embrace life is to let your self care
So let go of the hatred; it will get you nowhere
When you look back, know it was the best you could have made
‘Cause moment’s pass and memories fade
And don’t be afraid to be on your own
It doesn’t mean that you are alone
It means that you’re strong, and it means that you’re brave
That you can stand when others cave
And when love comes, embrace it
It may not last, but it’ll only hurt for a bit
You’ll get over it in time, and the flame will burn low
Until someone comes along who makes you glow
