A poem for a friend

Updated on August 10, 2016

♥ ♥ Reality ♥ ♥

I never thought in a millions of years that reality was going to hit me this hard.

I didn't even see it coming,

everyday I wake up ready to begin my day.

I have a smile for everyone, even on my worst days.

My weekends were great,

Clubs & drinks with the friends,

and last but not least my favorite phrase

I sit on it.

Now I sit down and ask myself

Where do I go from here?

Do I sit here and start crying or do I get up

and give life my best smile,

my best attitude, and continue living.

This time living without being afraid, because now I know for sure

god is by my side, and he won't let me down.

Now I stand strong on my own two feet.

Now its all about me,

like the diva that I am.

Like me there is no other.

This are not tears of sadness,

this are tears of joy because now,

I know i have a purpose in this life and my journey

Just begun…

      There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that we are here for a purpose and that we have a talent and a gift in this world. And to know that we don't have to be alone or apart. We just need to have confidence in ourselves. And Cherie is right, we need to know we can reach higher and there are those who can always help us. If others can do it, and succeed, then so can we.

      I look forward to reading more of your hubs and your writing.
