Hey guys this post is very different from the usual content on my website. My regular content will be coming shortly. Recently I was finally able to get all my poems together into one book my oldest ones dating back to 2007. Writing has always helped me get through really dark times. For many many years I suffered from severe depression. It was crippling and made it hard for me to leave my room, eat or go anywhere. I struggled keeping a job and even going to school. It felt like a dark shadow following me everywhere and constantly bringing me down. Most times I gave in, but other times I tried to fight it. In the end I was able to get the help I needed to overcome this shadow, but it wasn’t until recently I felt confident to release all of my poems. From dark times where I felt suicide was the only option and others where all I wanted to do was live. Nowadays those dark times seem so far away and I’m happy to be where I am now. I hope that my poetry can inspire you and help you along this crazy journey called life.

On the edge
Do it now…
Some times late at night I think of you
I’ve moved on but I haven’t
There’s no such thing as closure
I will never have that
I open up my bottom drawer
There hidden away the treasure of you
Your letters and cards
The love you once had for me
All gone now
But it still exists frozen in time
The beautiful words you wrote for me
I’ll never forget
Sometimes I take it out and remember the good ole times
I wish I had cherished those times with you more than I did
Now they are gone forever
Blown away by the wind
All I have left is your memory and smile
This is the year to find yourself. Learn more about you. All your problems and unhappiness will slowly to start to fade away as you become confident. More sure of yourself and most importantly accept yourself completely with all your faults.
The New Year
A fresh start
Feels like life just begins
Leaving all the old troubles behind
Finding my new path
Full of happiness and excitement
New adventures to come
New people I will meet
Can’t wait to see what lies ahead
A New Year
A New Beginning
Don’t let people get you down
Being consistent is the only way you will really achieve what you want.
That is the only way you will persevere in what you are doing.
Never let others make or influence your decisions.
Don’t stop trying to achieve your dreams for even a second.
It will float away forever.
A fresh day a new start
Every day brings a new dawn and a new beginning to start it all over again
Happy knowing things are working out
That today is better than the last
Staying resilient and strong
Will get you through any obstacle in life
Chin up and don’t let anyone bring you down
Because tomorrow is a new day
