on days that it feels difficult to share a smile.
on days that seems impossible to receive.
on days that feels hard to show how much you truly care.
on days when it’s challenging to understand their affairs.
when it’s hard to believe.
For we all have days that it feels deadly to breathe.
Like choking on our tears with tangled vines around our neck
Everything seems to get tighter, as we pull the vines to our faults.
It seems like it would have been better if we had just given up than actually giving in.
But we are so much more than what we see ourselves to be.
We are more than enough than we actually feel.
Our vulnerable hearts, are worth more than anything we’d ever love.
For we should always love ourselves before anyone else.
Plant that faith, and let your heart grow.
For time is short to not let yourself be bold.
