Sometimes it's like we are afraid to be happy and smile.
So we focus on the darkness.
If we constantly expect the worst we aren't disappointed when we find it.
Or does it find us, drawn to us by the negativity we send back to the universe.
If we never see the beauty, we won't miss it when it's gone.
If we never embrace the pleasure we become numb to the pain; thinking it's all we deserve.
If we don't expect and demand the good in life we won't be disappointed when we don't get it.
You deserve all the beauty and joy this life has to offer so don't settle for anything less!

Summer dying

I sit anxiously and wonder
Will I soon too go the way of summer and the wildflowers
Broken and spent all beauty and hope long lost
Crushed beneath life’s uncaring feet
Who will remember my beauty
when I have faded into the great blackness
I clutch the wildflowers in unsteady hands
and take their beauty into my soul
I too feel beaten
unable to stand myself back up
Ravaged by death’s harsh winters winds
I too will slumber beneath the snow
Floors squeak
Ghosts of the past rattle around in the darkness
Love...gone but not forgotten
lingers on my lips
like the sweet familiar taste of a lover
