A New Gong

We are the fighters of another age

We refuse to be locked up in this cage

I’m tired of everyone looking down on me

because my youth is all they bother to see

Look at my eyes and not my face

More than anything I belong in this placeRead More »

Little Girl Grew Up So Fast

Little girl fourteen years old

Yet moms got a plan for her life

Little girl had better fit the mold

Or she will just end up a lousy housewife

Little girl let her heart go ever cold

Sometimes she thinks there is more freedom in afterlife

But no, she reminds herself that there is much to life to unfold

Her life is not something to be sold

 

Little girl, ambition strong

She is gonna be an author

She wakes up with the bird’s song

And listens to mamma’s speech about how she will prosper

She ignores the words, her book is coming along

She smiles as she writes about a magic doctor

She really just wants to belong

She wants to be mamma’s daughter

 

But she was mistaken to even try

Cause an author is not in her mother’s plan

And it’s now that she realizes her mother will never comply

Her mother will control her entire lifespan

That is the truth she so desperately wants to deny

Little girl needs a super man

But daddy has always been mom’s ally

so little girl is left alone to say “I can.”

 

Little girl crying herself to sleep

she has no life of her own

She is ever so lost in the deep

She has lost her ever standing cornerstone

And her ego is something so hard to upkeep

Little girl wondering if mom would disown

Little girl afraid to let daddy hear her weep

Mom even has a plan for a final capstone

 

Little girl lets flapping wings take her mind

The sound drones out the pain

her life has always been undefined

Dad thinks she has gone insane

Little girl completely confined

She is so tired of listening to rain

She wants to let herself unwind

Her mind is something she no longer cares to maintain

 

Little girl forgetting what it means to live

Little girl grew up far too fast

She forgot what it means to be competitive

Little girl can’t unsee her past

Little girl trying to learn to give

Little girl feeling downcast

Little girl for the first time feeling determinative

Little girl who won’t stop holding fast.

One Chance

Why is it every time we get the chance to make an impact on someone’s life we let it pass in the blink of an eye?

I’m not saying I’m innocent here, but I am saying this,
We have one life.

The average person lives 79 years. That is 28,835 days. Then it’s over. The race is done, and what you did in this life; the choices you made, the people you spoke to, and things you did are a legacy. One that will either be remembered, or forgotten.

And here’s the thing,
Life can end at any time.

I know it sounds dark, but it’s true. How many books or movies have you heard of where a character wishes they had one more chance to say ‘I love you,’ or ‘goodbye’. Because there are a lot. The point is, if we tell the people we love that we do, we don’t have to worry about them not knowing it. Because it does matter even if we like to pretend it doesn’t.

We have 28, 235 days to make a difference, and it doesn’t matter if you are young or old.

1 Timothy 4:12 says this.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct in love, in faith and in purity.

In the kingdom of God, age does not matter. You have this life to make a difference and that’s it. We like to make excuses by telling ourselves that we’re too young, or weak. The truth is, the only way to be old enough or strong enough is to do something.

We have one life. One chance. I think it’s time we stop wasting it and work to change someone else’s life. We have 28, 835 days. I think it’s time we take this one to make a difference in this world we live in.

 

I am so so so sorry! I lost track of time and forgot to post anything! This post was just something that has been laying on my mind, and I wanted to share it with you. I guess it’s sorta inspiring or something of the sort…? I will be posting for sure tomorrow and I might also post on Wednesday to try and get some new posts up for you guys. Don’t forget to let me know what you think below in the comments section! Thanks lots and have a terrific Monday!

Who We Are

I think it’s funny how often we forget about who we are. We get so caught up in what people expect us to be. We make ourselves funny, quiet, smart, or even annoying just to fulfill other people’s versions of us. Why do we care. We are who we are, but for some reason we feel the need to be what people want of us. If everyone was who they was than everyone would have who they really needed, not who they thought they needed. This world is confusing enough. It only makes it harder when everyone walks around every single day wearing a mask. I think it’s time we stop hiding who we are and reveal the people we really are.

 

I don’t know where my inspiration came from for this. I guess I am just feeling this today. Please leave a comment below if you liked it and tell me why. Feedback is very much appreciated. Hope you had a great Tuesday and enjoy your evening!
