Why do you hide behind those shades…? I asked her
Its to hide away the tears that I don’t want no one to see.
Its to hide the pain in my eyes.
You see… My shades don’t judge me.
They are their to protect me from the hard sun light called life…
I have them to protect my identity because I’m not confident in who I am anymore..
My shades cover up my hurts and my scars…
It covers up my insecurities…
I feel much safer that way…
Take off those shades….
Its OK to show your tears… Your eyes shine and gets a glow afterwards.
Your pain is beautiful your scars are unique, look just like mine.
Look at me, I wont judge you… We all make mistakes… we all hurt.
Please Remove the shades
Those shades hide your beauty “Your Beautiful”
The only way you’ll find out who you truly are if you take off those shades…
(She then slowly took off the shades and she resembled me)
You ask me if I was happy. Well can’t you see my smile…?
I am good where I’m at, I haven’t cried in a while…
I’m getting stronger day by day; I’ve found another way through
God has rescued this little girl and made her all bran new…
You asked me if I was blessed. Well can’t you see my swag…?
I am good where I’m at, no need for me to brag.
I have become all women a change I’m proud to see
Just to see me happy and bless I’ve become the woman in me!!
Sometimes people can be mean and put you down because of your flaws
Sometimes they determine who you are because of your past,
but they don’t understand we all are not perfect and people do change
if that wasn’t the case then why is their such thing as being born again?
What I realize is that to some point of our life we all have experience hurt in some way or form
But how we go about it is how we determine our maturity and who we are
Sometimes people will create those tears you try to hold in for so long
Sometimes people will rob you of your joy, just when you think …. everything is going well
But understand people will take from you if you have something to give
And their are those that are like leaches, will suck the life out of you
But be strong and of good courage,
because we live to learn
We cry to heal
Make mistakes to change
and we love to be love
And I realize that God is not those people, even though he created them
He has to take us through these journey to help us grow
Its like a father preparing His child for the real world
So exhale and breathe again
yes, breath again!
and live to learn!
cry to heal!
And forgive, “those sometimes people”
because at some point in our lives, we were one of them…
Now exhale and breathe again!
Yes! breath again.

Being better, Becoming better is not for the world… But it’s for you.
The world just so happens to benefit from it.
Every step you take towards progression gets you closer to your destination of who you truly are.
The obstacles along the way are exactly what they are “obstacles” (A thing that blocks one’s way or prevents or hinders progress).
Its OK…! They are their to make you much stronger and wiser.
It benefits you at the end.
Pressing to become better shows dedication.
Holding on for the better shows perseverance.
I’m not sharing this just because… But I too am on that same journey of becoming a better me.
And yes I still stumble, I still get weak, and still deal with hurt at times.
But the better I see I am becoming, hope is increasing.
I’m not only becoming better, but I’m becoming hopeful…
“Their is hope in your becoming”
I’m learning how awesome God’s Love is.
I now understand my purpose in Him.
It is to Love like Him, Forgive like Him, and Fight like Him, To find Peace in Him.
Love is much greater than our mortal understanding it is beyond our thoughts and imaginations.
Our mistakes is what makes us see what Love truly is.
Love can only manifest where their is brokenness, sadness, mistakes and in any area we as human fall short in.
Just like light can only shine in darkness.
Love is transparent. It sees through the lies, the brokenness, the guilt, the hurt, the mistakes, and everything else. Just as God sees our heart.
Wherever their is healing, Love is in the midst.
Wherever their is joy, Love is present.
Wherever their is peace, Love exists.
And wherever their is Love, You have found God.
