You can try and blame your actions on someone in your past, but in the end you're the only one that will have to deal with the consequences. Do right by other people, and do right by yourself.
Dreams Money Can't Buy
Sometimes, when I can't sleep I stay up late and listen to artists rap about how depressed they are. How they never could imagine, in their wildest dreams, how incredibly worthless money would be. No matter how big the house or car, if your soul is empty, so are you. I hear the disappointment in the lyrics when they try to tell us that if this is as good as life gets, then maybe everything they left behind wasn't worth it. I learn lessons. I learn to treasure people, and never let money get in between me and those that I love. Yes, money is very important, but it could never love you back. I was taught at a very young age that it is impossible to love inanimate objects. I will never compromise my happiness for money. I won't fall into the trap of this crazy society. That being said, I know that I will be successful in whatever I put my heart in. I will love who I am, and what I do. No one would be able to tell me I'm not the most rich person in the world.
I think a girl's trip is in order... What's the saying? Flights not feelings? Yea, I can't wait... stay tuned.
I want you to know me
I want to be apart of your life right now, not something separate
I want to tell you about myself
I want you to know everything but I don’t want to waste my time.
I want you to know my friends
I want you to know me
Like the back of your hand
I want to know you
It’s hard to open up
It would be cool to know how your days go, even if it’s repetitive
what kind of music you like
your favorite food
the people you love
I don’t know if you feel the same
I’m at a place in my life where I can’t waste my time
And if we don’t work out that doesn’t mean time wasted,
but if in the time we spend together, I don’t get to know you, really know you, and at least make a friend
then that is when I will feel like it was all for nothing...
Respect my time
and I will respect yours
It was tiring approaching every new situation as if there was pain right around the corner. I was tired of only connecting physically, and not emotionally or mentally. I wanted more, but I was giving nothing. I've loved only one person since my last relationship. I wasn't in-love, thats something different. But, who's to say we couldn't get there? It was the type of love friends shared. It wasn't the type of love that strangled you, or the love that was all or nothing. It was a love that will last forever, because the only goal of that love is to see happiness; whether that be together or apart. The type of love that made me want to take a risk on my seemingly fragile heart. I let that connection go unintentionally. At the time, I was unable to understand my own heart, making it completely impossible to understand another. When that bond started to feel real, I retreated to my comfort. Real was scary. Real meant that I was making myself susceptible to embarrassment, rejection, or even worse... loss. It was hard for me to receive the passion or care he tried to give. I let our bond slip. I ran and hadn't looked back until recent. I didn't know I missed him, until I missed him. Weeks passed by and he was never on my mind until I started to reflect. A skill he had insisted I work on when we were still apart of each others life. When I started to reflect I focused on myself. I thought about who I was, who I am, and who I want to be. I acknowledged the growth that I've made. I realized that a couple months ago when I thought I had healed completely from my last burn, that I was still bruised. If I was healed, I would feel then, how I feel now. Ready to love or like openly and honestly. The moment I realized what I had done, I felt the need to reconcile and maybe salvage the bits and pieces of the love I let leave. I took a risk and communicated my regret. I was too late. Time had gotten the best of us. Things change fast. These days I take everything one step at a time. I'm not looking for anything, but I am confident that whenever love finds me I will be ready to receive and nurture it. I am ready for love in all aspects whether it be familial, through friendship, or through relationship. I've finally healed and it's beautiful. How lucky am I to have healed with no scar.
I am young, and still trying to figure this adult thing out. I come from a West Indian household, and my life has been a series of unexpected events, like most.
