Stream of Consciousness

you know it, i know it, let’s all take a nap

get out of your own way

YOU know what you need

YOU know what you want

you know what your heart and mind are fighting for within you


the hard thing is


is easier said than done


and the world?

there are nasty people that want to make it harder for you

people who want to crush you

step on you

confuse you until you don’t know who YOU are


but you have your own power

it might not feel like it

it might feel like you cannot wield it

but you can

somewhere, deep down, you know you can

even if it’s a shriveled little lump of dead, unused muscle

you can exercise it

get stronger


and let’s not forget

there are GOOD people too

people who want to love you

support your, empower you

there’s hope

you just have to find it, fight for it

and learn to rest
