17 Sep Bloom
Look at your fluorescent smile,
As it lights up the mirror full of doubt that flooded your mind for a while.
I see red, I see pink and the blue is down the sink,
Because those nights you used to cry with those teardrops trickling from your eyes have been erased in a blink, those tattoos didn’t ink.
I could be talking to anyone when I say that I love you
But how many times have you had that message sink through to you?
It’s difficult facing your scary thoughts, especially those that you thought you’ve fought
And that’s ok because I know I’m still going through the motions, I’m still trying to give my health some time and devotion
However, I’ll say don’t look at the universe to define who you should be, but let your joyous attributes be the first thing you see
For love heals the tears of sorrow that drown within the sea.
Love. Give yourself love
Without love, who are you?
Time is like food, don’t waste what you chew
What things do you want to pursue?
Give yourself a clue before your time becomes overdue
How many years will it take you to release what’s true?
You’re more than what money can buy
So please I’m begging you, don’t be shy.
From every crevice of my heart and the frontal lobe of my brain,
I’m telling you that I myself understand your pain
So, rise above the darkness and bloom above the surface
Because I know that you are not the laughing stock of the circus.

Hello everyone! I really enjoy spreading kindness and positivity, as well as motivating people through their times of strife. I also love expressing myself through diary writing and poetry, as it allows me to convey my feelings through the art of language.
