Colossians 3:12-14

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.  Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense.  Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you.  An regardless of what else you put on, wear love.  It’s your basic, all-purpose garment.  Never be without it.

“Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us.  And the greatest is love.”

– Alan Jackson

Ecclesiastes 3:1-10

There is a time for everything
And a season for every activity under heaven:
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
A time to embrace and a time to refrain,
A time to search and a time to give up,
A time to keep and a time to throw away,
A time to tear and a time to mend,
A time to be silent and a time to speak,
A time to love and a time to hate,
A time for war and a time for peace.
What does the worker gain from his toil?

Overcoming PTSD Quote

I’m not crazy, I was abused.

I’m not shy, I’m protecting myself.

I’m not bitter, I’m speaking the truth.

I’m not hanging onto the past, I’ve been damaged.

I’m not delusional, I lived a nightmare.

I’m not weak, I was trusting.

I’m not giving up, I’m healing.

I’m not incapable of love, I’m giving.

I’m not alone.  I see you all here.  I’m fighting this.

— Rene Smith

Dreaming

You’re afraid

the last time you felt this

they told you

you are crazy.

I drew you in

with the same beliefs

that you had

when you went mad.

I’ve done my studies

a year and a day

and for the next three years

I’m here to stay

I want to show you my world

distinguish the true

from the fake

reach out for my hand

it’s yours to take

The crystals

will heal you

these spells

give you strength

I think that I’m dreaming

finding someone like you

to bring me into starlight

and dance with me ‘neath the moon

I know you are nervous

let go of your fear

nothing can harm you

not while I’m here

Healing is Believing

Finally

I can feel again

but now it’s good

for the first time

in what seems like forever

It happened on Easter

or rather the day before

when I hit rock bottom

once again

but this time

I cried out for help

and I actually got it

I got used to

fighting my own fight

in total autonomy

but not this time

I have awoken

from the nightmare of the bast few months

I broke free of the chains binding me

and like Jesus Christ

I broke free

on Easter Sunday

I have started again

but I’m stronger now

even more a survivor

than before

Because I now know

there is something else with me

watching over me

guiding and protecting me

loving me unconditionally

God, Goddess, Allah, Buddha, Zeus

whatever you call it

the celestial force that surrounds us

must truly exist

and be a benevolent supreme being

because who else would be watching

a struggling first year

recovering from another heartbreak

and prove

through human mouthpieces

that there is someone here

whenever you fall

they will catch you

and get you back on your feet

stronger than ever before

Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this is a bad idea
Maybe we shouldn’t do this
Maybe this is wrong
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this isn’t real
Maybe this is a dream
Maybe I’m making this up.
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this is real
Maybe this is fate
Maybe this is perfection
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this is truth
Maybe this is meant to be
Maybe you are the one
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe I’m falling
Maybe you are too
Maybe this is destiny
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this is friendship
Maybe this is natural
Maybe this is meant to be
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this is love
Maybe this is what I need
Maybe this will help me feel
Maybe I’ll be whole again
Maybe you’re my home
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe we’ll fight
Maybe sparks will fly
Maybe we will end
Maybe we won’t
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe you’re my forever
Maybe we are meant to be
Maybe you were made for me
Maybe I was made for you
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe you will break me
Maybe I will break you
Maybe we’ll break each other
Maybe.

Maybe.
Maybe this is love
Maybe it’s true love
Maybe I’m dreaming
Maybe this is right
Maybe.

You.

You.
Everything seems to come back
to you
always you

every breath
each heartbeat
each step
is you

I never knew
It was possible to feel this way
To be this way
Yet here I am
Thinking of you

How can I be
Lucky enough
To have someone
So loving
So caring
So beautiful so perfect
In my life?

How is it possible
That someone
Like you
Could ever choose
Someone like me
To live out your days with
When you could have
Someone far better
Than me

I never thought
Someone so broken
So damaged
So jaded and scared
Could ever learn
To feel this way
And stay
Though my instincts scream
“run away!”

You.
You changed me
I think you saved me
When you showed me
That even I
Deserve to be loved
Despite my flaws
And constant shortcomings
You still stick around
And that’s why you’re stunning

Though I don’t want to
I see what’s coming
Someone will be hurt
This can’t last forever

Please quiet my mind
Prove me wrong with a kiss
Stay with me for long
Don’t let my doubts end this

You’re so beautiful
I wish you could see it
The scars on your wrist
Show you don’t believe it

If only a mirror could reflect what I see
Then maybe you’ll realize
You’re beautiful to me

I love you my darling
Now riddle me this
Do you fall for me more
Each time that we kiss?

Or am I just a lover
To keep you warm in the night
Will you fall for another
The first time we fight?

Please tell me I’m crazy
That you love me too
Because I would be lost
If I didn’t have you.

I hope I don’t scare you
When I say how I feel
I just want you to love me
I want this to be real

If I’m dreaming
Please wake me
Be cruel if you must
I think that I love you
This isn’t just lust

I hope this is worth it
This turmoil inside
It’s too strong to hide it
So to you I must confide

Don’t hurt me
My darling
Don’t leave me
My dear
I feel that our love
Is totally real

You are my sunshine
You are my rain
Every breath
Every second
Calls your name

To you
My precious
I’ll always return
For when I’m not with you
My heart it does burn

I yearn for your touch
Your kiss
Your hand
You have my heart now
Protect it if you can

Good Enough

(Chorus)

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

Here I am again

Feeling so inferior

Everybody acting like they’re so superior

With their grades

And clothes

And Ivy League acceptances

They’re all competing for the throne

And I’m alone

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

I work so hard

And dream so big

But when others hear my dreams

My life gets torn at the seems

By their cruel laughs

As they tell me I’ll never make it

I climb so high

Inside my head

I rule the world

Writing music in my bed

Trying to prove them wrong

Please show me they’re wrong

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

(bridge)

And I try

And I try so hard

To be what everyone

Wants me to be

(voice over)

But they don’t realize

They can’t change me

No one can change me

No one can change me

Nobody but me

Ha!

I’ve finally learned

To deal with the pain

Of being knocked down again and again

Because no one thinks I can make it

But I will prove them wrong

I have to prove them wrong

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

I know I’ve gotta be

I know I’ve gotta be

I know I’ve gotta be good enough for somebody

I’ve gotta make them see

I’m gonna make them see

That no matter what they say or do

I’m finally good enough for me

And I’m always gonna be me

I will always be me
