“Forgetting is a natural element, but forgiveness is a choice”

“I’ve forgotten all the reasons I loved you, ’till someone tells me that you rang. The memories are hazy now. I don’t recall at all. There’s nothing. There’s nothing there, just me.

The Things People Say…

In A Messy World

They tell you to be brave and strong; To walk with confidence and with your head held high;They tell you be fierce and kick ass;To be smart and powerful;Yet gentle and elegant. They tell you to smash goals and “hang in there!”; To wear this smile with pride and don’t let it slip;

What they don’t tell you…

Exactly as you are.
