For I do not take love as a game. I was told I was loved,
By a silhouette who never came
to talk straight on the face.
To tell me through the haze.
But, I waited though I did not love.
You wonder where I got this verses from? Well, let me tell you!
One of our poetry bar participants has a book published! The book is titled “How Much Can We Live, Love, Die?” by Thunder Ling. The poems were written over the time span of 5 years and are based on poet’s experience or of those around her.
I could write a lot about the author here and about the book, but I will let her work speak instead. The two poems this self-published author sent to the Poetry Bar are The Mighty Wall and Way With Hearty Words.
I decided to end today with this quote. I really needed to read this today and maybe some of you needed this quote as well so I decided to share it. Lately, I have really had difficulties with controlling my reactions to… everything. I have just been so quick to snap. Anyways, I am tired. I am going to bed because I have to do this life thing all over again tomorrow but I hope with better control of my emotions.
Make sure to send in your submissions for The Poetry Bar, Positivity Press and #savingme. Also, this week we will be having a really exciting announcement about one of our Poetry Bar participants. Can’t wait to share it with all of you!
I am speaking from my own experience when I say, I have no job certainty after July. When a potential relationship came my way after years, it ended before it began. I am Type 1 Diabetic and recently I have taken two steps forward with my eating habits, and I’ve had moments just as recently when it felt like I took three steps backwards. My family is going through relational struggles and on top of that finances are not the best they have ever been.
That is my sob story which you may relate to. However, I choose to make these positive affirmations:
I will receive employment from the end of July onwards.
I have been patient and I will meet the right person soon.
I will make healthy choices when it comes to my eating habits and physical activity.
My family will heal relationally and we will get on our feet again.
My encouragement to anybody dealing with any negativity at this moment is to acknowledge it and then decide by faith that it is not the end, that things will change for the best. Each dream you have is valid and can come true.
I’ve kept all of this bottled up inside
for so long that it just can’t all come
out of my mouth or through writing.
It started crawling out of me through
the hole you left in my chest and it burns
even more than your betrayal did.
