The Anchor

Can I tell you of the heartaches I have felt?
the tears I have cried,
and the lovers I have lost.

How about the lingering pain,
how it left me alone,
and naked on the ground.

But what good would it do? To read this depressing story of how life disappoints and how it makes you wish you weren’t breathing. Because let’s face it, it is easier to stay in the bottoms of the ocean with the broken vessels and scattered memories, then to see the eye in the center of the hurricane.

But my love, let me tell you about the beauty within this disaster.
Let me calm your raging seas and be the stillness behind your quivering lips, wet pillows and sleepless nights.

Let me sooth your soul with what I have to offer you, let me show you what I have to give because it could be the greatest thing you have ever experienced.

So darling, please take a chance on me.
Just like you took a chance with those star crossed lovers that left you abandoned.

Come with me, and let me show you the sunrise.


Beauty in the Ashes

For you can not see the sunrise without the darkness.
Nor can you feel joy with out sorrow.
Or a brokenness without having been whole.

For you can not enjoy a peace that rises above all fear without having felt torment.
Nor can you realize what love is without having been rejected.
Or the sensation of being full without being empty.

But the great thing is, that we all have felt these emotions, whither it has been for a second or what we deem as “a lifetime”.
And that’s a reminder that better is yet to come.

Just as a rose has to go through thorns for its beauty to be seen.
Or the baby blue sky is clear after the storm,
I will be made whole in my brokenness, and I will be happy, loved, and at peace.
