The wind gently blows the leaves
as the birds chirp away.
The summer heat strengthens its power
as the shade of the trees restricts its reach.
The beauty of nature surrounds the city
as the people go about their day.
A mother takes her child to the park
to burn some of the energy away.
We all live in a world where sometimes
the simplest of things are taken for granted.
Sometimes I feel like my world is tumbling down.
Then I realize I could not even be around.
I wonder how I could have been such a fool.
I was a fool, a fool in love.
I loved this man with all of my heart.
However, circumstances tore us apart.
Sometimes I wonder how I can go on.
I know life must go on
Sometimes we make wrong decisions that shift
our life in an unknown direction
At the time, we think we are doing the right thing.
In life, we learn the heart can be misleading.
With each mistake comes a time of reflection.
Why oh why did I choose such direction?
I will never view love as naively as I did before.
With each chance meeting, I will proceed with caution.
I will live life being thankful for every breath I take
and every move I make.
I thank God for allowing me to survive.
Without him, nothing is possible.
I give advice whenever I can
and heed advice whenever I can.
If I can save only one life,
I feel as if I have scored a million.
Life is so precious,
and life should be lived to the fullest
It is silly to say I wish I could live life over.
What is wrong with living life now?
Tomorrow is not promised.
Love is not promised.
However, love does exist.
Love does not hurt
and love doesn’t kill.
Love cannot be bought.
Love must be learned and earned.
Love is necessary for a blissful life.
I love myself for who I am
and not for who I am to anyone else.
To get through any bad thing,
there must be a good thing
I am the good thing, and I love me.
Whether fat or thin,
I love me.
Whether rich or poor,
I love me.
Love yourself first,
and others will love and respect you
Be strong for you
if you can’t be strong for anyone else.
With every mistake,
reflect and go on.
Do not spend a lot of time wondering…what if.
Go after your dreams.
Live life, love life, and most of all be happy.
I am happy with me
and there is not a person I would rather be.
It took a lot to get to this point.
I do not regret a thing.
I am a better person to have survived
and a stronger person to have gone through it.
Loving yourself is vital to existence.
When you love yourself,
you generate positive energies.
You have the desire to dream
and have self-esteem so great
that no one or nothing can tear it apart.
You only want the best for yourself
and will settle for nothing less.
You are important to your survival
and rely on no one to make you happy
because your happiness exists within.
