hard-times

We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

Someone Might Need This Right Now

I know things might be super hard for some you. I just want you to know that everything will be alright, trust me. I know some days are especially harder than some days. Think of something in the future that makes you want to continue and make it that far and even further. You might get to see your favourite band or meet them. Imagine all the possibilities. Promise yourself one more day because something great might happen. I know you can beat this hard time. Most importantly talk to someone, weather it’s a friend or teacher or parents. So many people are out there to help you feel better and please remember that.   

There are moments where I just want to give up.
And there are moments where I am sure I’ll never back down.

Sometimes I am done with life.
And sometimes it feels like I just started to live.

There has happened so much in my short life.
Yet there is still a lot to come.

My head wispers to give up,
But my heart screams stay strong.
