As by MwsR
As I already knew
That nothing would change my shade of blue.
It was a color I was very familiar with
A common in my life ever since being a Smith.
My goals were simple back in the day
It was to be a singer up on a stage.
To be applauded for a song
Not knowing it was in my personal life, I needed applause all along.
As I dreamed of being a nurse
I wanted to help others who had it worse.
I never felt that I couldn’t brighten someone’s day
But more often than not I wanted to cheer people up with words that I could say.
See, helping someone made my problems fade
But unfortunately, it just took my mind off them, they never really went away.
As life has a way of making things seem so heavy and hard
Our hopes, dreams, and aspirations get marred.
Things that mattered once now fall on stony ground
They cannot recoup nor any abundance is found.
Sadly they die and disappear
Nothing can grow there, sometimes for years.
As if that was that
It comes and leaves from where it is at.
No rhyme nor reason
No hope, no change of the season.
Nothing but despair
That is all that is left all too often there.
As a leaf falls to the ground,
We will too.
But if we are lucky and a strong wind blows through,
It will carry us and our troubles will be few.
As surely as I write,
One day things will again, be alright.
There is no need to worry about spilled milk
It can easily be cleaned.
If the smell can be withstood
Then things will get back to normal as they should.
As you read this belief in things, hope for things, dream of things while you can.
Don’t listen to the opinions of just any man.
No one can make a future for you,
You have to believe in yourself, it’s true.

Mirror by MwsR
“I am good enough,” she said to herself.
“I am not the prettiest, not the littlest but I ain’t ugly,” she continued as she looked in the mirror.
Despite her repeated efforts to make herself feel important or good about herself, the one thing she never could forget was the way she had been treated.
No mirror will help your soul shine... NO twist of fate will change your mind... **** It is only when you, yourself can take off all those self-doubts, all those busted dreams, and scrape up your own courage to see yourself as a fallible, imperfect creature that you will feel as you always should of, about yourself. Inhibited only by yourself and not the opinions of others.
“Memory is a great artist. For every man and for every woman it makes the recollection of his or her life a work of art and an unfaithful record.”
