I’ve been writing more lately. Maybe not specifically on the blog or for the blog, but in general. When the moment strikes me, I take out my phone and usually just start writing into the notes app on my phone. It takes a lot for me to share these words as they usually stem from something extremely personal but since this blog is called Talk Less, Say More, I figured I better say something worth sharing.
With that said, here’s something I wrote recently…
No one said it would be easyAnd I knew it from the startMost things worth doing will try youThey will send you on a rideOne you never saw comingSo you learn to suck it upGrow tougher skinHold back the tearsAnd make the tough decisionsThe ones that question your prideAnd strengthAnd perseveranceAnd belief in yourselfIn those around youBelief in what you’re doingSometimes it takes going homeTo re-ground yourselfTo find your wayTo remind yourself why you startedWhy you challenged the systemThe normal way for everyone elseThe way that doesn’t suit youBut sometimes we forgetWe get caught in the breezeWe drift off courseWe lose our directionAnd need to find our way backSo that’s when we go homeWe plant our feet back on the groundWe see the faces of those we knowWho support and encourage and loveWho know we can do itWho know we’ll give it allSo I’ll hand you my pride if I mustI’ll show you my fearMy insecurities and worryBut I’ll also show you my strengthMy love and my passionMy drive and ambitionAnd then when you least expect itWhen I least expect itI’ll show you it was worth it all.
I heart this! Virtual hugs!! <3 <3
