Shackle You…..

Shackle You…..

I am the fire, you are the rain.
I am the sunlight but your the darkest place.

I’m not a leader but you’d wrap me in chains.
I’m the wander, your the pain. I’m the tryer, you tied me down.

I achieve where you just stood still. I’m a fighter, you just give in.
I’m a dreamer with a chance, your living in your past.

I shout out but you’re quiet like a mouse. I believe it can happen, you wait for me to fail my ambition.

I’m a journey where you have no sail, no aim,no direction.
I’m a survivor, you just surrender.
I claw at life, you cut it down like a knife.

I’m a thought, your just closed.
I breath it in, you starve the oxygen.

I’m free to roam and your no more, my life I’ll live and your chains I’ve broke, your bind no longer holds. I’ll breath my freedom without your doubt keeping me under.

I’ve fought the fight the hardest way, I’m the winner ain’t got your time of day. My voice rejoices, my volume on full blast, can’t hear you now, so far in my past.

I survived this, standing proud, stood my ground and left that negative platform, I now see the sunshine.

Your gloom behind me, my positivity beat your negative hold on me. Breaking your barriers, breathing my freedom.

This is my journey. No time for you to mixup my feelings. I’m going forward where once I’d just stand still.

You can do anything, it’s all there for you, just set your mind to achieve it, don’t listen to doubtful chains that shackled you.

Do what you want, it’s all you have to do. Easy to say No, OK, Maybe, say Yes, Your amazing. See, look at the floor, the shackles are open, they no longer hold you.

Take all the chances life throws your way, your here to achieve so believe in yourself, be amazed as you gaze at what you have become, you took the chance and well, You Won.

I’ve fallen, I’m still falling, I fall every single day, difference is I always get back up no matter how much it hurts.

I’ve cried, I didn’t cry today but I still smile even though I know the pain. I’m broken, I’ve fell into a million different pieces but I’ve managed to fix myself just took a while to rearrange the picture.

I’ve been down, I’ve lost myself, I’ve wondered aimlessly until I came back full circle and I’ve turned the frowns upside down.

I’ve walked many a lonely road only to find friends around the next bend. This sadness followed me, still does every day.

Its how you react to memories that impact your feelings, life’s lessons, sad times, learn to smile again

. It’s not easy, never is but I’d rather see sunshine reflecting back at me. Storm clouds, bouncing rain, me on a bad day.

Well I stand with my head held high, not because I’m special but I refuse to give into the daily scars and pressure.

There’s a lot to smile about, just look around, if your alone then visit a memory, Take a walk, visit a friend, go for a drink, laugh like you couldn’t stop laughing, reminise about past laughs, relive the happy times.

Say hello to a perfect stranger, who knows you might make a life long memory.

So don’t dwell on things that brought you down, times that made you fall, just remember your still on your feet, you faced your defeat and whatever it was you’ve still got a smile on your face.

Like sunny summer days, chasing rainbows like you did as a kid. Pray that the rain stops, the clouds blow away and everything well its kinda OK.

Just words but if you put them into practice and live each day like this, well I hope it helps, even just a little.

Life doesn’t last forever but if you look back on smiles then I suppose it’s all more than worth it and if you smiled whilst you spent your time reading then I suppose my Aim truly made it.

“You meant so much more than a lot”…..

“You meant so much more than a lot”…..

I’m just a little worn at the edges, I’ll stitch my frayed Emotions soon enough to pull myself together.

Just a phase I’ve got to go through, in the past I couldn’t have done it without you.
No easy fixes just time to refit the pieces.

Times a healer, well so they tell me,wish it would hurry the fk up because I’m sick of it recently.

Look back on memories and how they remind me of days I was smiling,the days we were together almost like gang members.

Remember the good times, the laughs, the nights out, the cars, the beers,the bikes, the girls more laughs even the fights.

Think back on the good times like a photograph album, thinking about the stories they could tell you.

Wishing we had a rewind button and a delete for just some of them.

The past and were I am now, I didn’t go far but I still managed to laugh and share some excellent times.

The people that passed on this road map called life, thanks I salute you, it wouldn’t have been the same without you.

The smiles and the tears, the laughs over the years. On one hand I hold the best of the bunch and you my friend are definitely one of them.

We say our goodbyes , we shed our tears and one by one we’ll dissappear but until that day when I can’t say how I feel well I’d just like to say thanks for making it real.

The times we shared, the chats we aired, the times I cried wishing shit hadn’t occurred.

I’m just a man you knew from a kid, just thankful I got the chance to share some of the best parts with you.

Must have been times we could have gone and lost the will to carry on but I’m a stubborn fkr who hates missing out.

So I built up a canvas that’s painted my life, cut out the shit and underlined happy times. Framed all the moments and I’ll carry them round, something to look back at when I’m too grey and old.

Thanks for the hugs, the wake ups and laughs but most of all for being a friend.

My circle is small but my hearts truly massive and I hold you right in its centre.

So words come easy, so they say, well try writing this because I put my heart into it, if I’m the next and I hope that Im not, life has been cruel but I’ve enjoyed it so much,just think of this sentence.

“You meant so much more than a lot”.

Carry the Love by L D Wright

Carry the Love…..

Yesterday I cried a little, the pain just got too much, I had to release the gates before tears caused a flood.
Sadness through Grief is the hardest nut to crack, no wonder we all relate it to the colour black.
Left wandering, remembering, reminiscing over times once shared but now we’ll be missing smiles now your no longer there.

Lost at the crossroads, not knowing which road to take, knowing your not going to be there whichever way I turn.

I hate it when this sadness decides to visit, hurts in the very pit of my stomach, takes me back to the times I don’t want to be anywhere near.

The raw emotions, the hurtful feelings, the sorrow, the tears.
I’ve been here many times and it still hurts like hell but I know in time it will vanish but one day visit me again.

I’ll never get use to the way it feels, to be wrapped in emotions, unable to find words. To walk around aimlessly, to visit a memory, to smile then start crying because it meant so much to me.

Grieving isn’t easy, it’s really truly hard and it mixes up your feelings and wraps around your heart. It stamps upon the memories and tears them all apart and you’ll definitely find it almost impossible to cope.

We say our goodbyes, we cry again, we feel that pain like a personal war we became injured in.
There’s no easy fix for what happens next, just one foot forward and hope the other follows it.

People ask how your feeling, well I still don’t know how to answer that. Just carry the grief and hold the love in your heart.

I’ll catch you in memories like a ghost came to visit and I’ll stop for a second too watch you dissappear.

One day someone might write a poem just like this just hope it’s not about me.

It comes to us all, eventually catches us up but until that day I’ll just carry the love.

Carry On….. By, L D Wright

Carry On…..

Can’t knock me down, well not for too long. These feet are planted firmly where they belong.

Walked this ground like it belongs to me and this ain’t no place new, it’s been my old stomping ground for about forever now.

I’ll hold my breath longer than you have patience so don’t wait for me to cave in, it’s not part of my behaviour.

This didn’t break me, it just set me back a little but now I’m back and I’m firing on full throttle.

Dived into the fires, covered in smoke but now it’s all clear and I’m only going forward.

Been to the brink when most thought I’d sink, took me a while but I didn’t think there was a time limit.

Some shits hard to break free from but now it’s behind me.

I’ve shattered whatever tried to break me and that shit storm is over as I bask in the sunshine.

Some weather brings black clouds with rolling thunder but I prefer to shine like I’m supposed too.

Life hasn’t been easy but whatever is, if its worth doing then you have to go through certain bad events.

Tomorrows always coming, just another day, grab it with both hands and don’t ever let it rain on your parade.

Time and time and time again storms blow in but blow out again.

You’ll see me smile when the lightning cracks because I know the sun’s on the horizon, it just hasn’t reached me yet.

When life’s void pulls you in be prepared to claw your way back out again.

It isn’t no pleasure cruise when life starts to crumble but just remember your stronger than this, infact anything.

Don’t carry guilt, don’t drag the nightmares around, let go of that like you just grabbed hot coals.

When the eruptions block out the sun remember when the dust settles you aren’t on your own.

Don’t linger on the burdens, don’t surrender, this is your life and its such a huge glorious multi coloured picture.

So sadness & bad times effect us, keep them like a lesson learnt but remember you dropped that hurt before your fingers got burnt.

Only skin and bones but one with a heart of pure gold, let the sun shine, the storms will pass so carry on smiling regardless.

Life will take you back to times you’d rather forget but just look at your feet and take the first step.

Take a look, see how far you’ve come, see what stopped you once has now come and gone allowing you to Carry On.

Stronger Version….. By L D Wright

Stronger Version…..

I feel it pull against my Spirit. Takes my fears and thoughts to extreme limits.

Like a blink of an eye it’s upon me, chest aches as I struggle, heads racing, breath quickens, feels like I’m falling.

No time to listen as the anguish takes over and destroys my ambitions. Breath quickens.

It’s almost like a demon crept right inside my skin as my body shakes and I hear it scream.

Uncontrollable yet they say relax, good advice but I feel like I’m about to have some major attack.

Chest is banging like an exorcism refuses to leave, invades my escape, down on one knee thinking, this is it.

I look around but it’s all gone blurred and I can’t utter one single word.

My head feels like it’s travelling at light speed, getting faster than my heart beats.

Deep breaths, hot sweats, panic sets.

My mind feels the pressure once again as its attack sends me spiraling into insanely dark circles.

I can’t control it, it’s scary as hell when the demon taps and your entire body feels its grip.

Even though we can take a lot, our burdens eventually bring us down, We’re all delicate, easily broke but with time and patience we can all be fixed.

Step by step and easy does it and one day soon we’ll all rise above it.

Whatever life throws your way with a little luck and a whole heap of Love you can, you will be the you of yesterdays gone and be a much stronger version of the one you are now.

Your eyes closed….. By L D Wright

Your eyes closed…..

Your not alone, use your mind and your wherever you want to go.

Set the goals you want to achieve in. Open the gates that create the dreams that become reality not just fantasy.

It’s all there, close your eyes, dare to dream. Become the author of the unwritten pages, the super hero we can’t live without.

The warrior in the distant battle, power to stop tanks, end conflicts, Like the Eagle soaring, the feather to venture any weather.

Whatever your the star with the main role. Drift away returning with jewels of your mind.

Your not alone you just choose to be, sit, think for a second, see it start to happen.

Relive stories, change them up, rewind, stop, smile. See you just saw a thousand people and you didn’t even move.

Believe in yourself, powerful thoughts that belong and some borrowed but you made them your very own little story.

You can achieve anything, just breathe it all in.

Relax it’s easy, see it’s already happening. Go back to dreams and rethink the order, did it happen or did you just recreate the story.

Magical moments that grew from a thought not something you purchased but wrote with your soul like a pure genius.

Ever growing miracles created on vacations when your thoughts dared to travel and guess what your still sat & didn’t move a single muscle.

So your not alone, you can virtually time travel, extend your thoughts and the mind will follow.

It’s not a special gift but one we all possess, eyes closed you can visit anywhere,achieve anything.

Fingers write the images created sharing your visions for all to share in.

Before you know it your in the middle of your very best adventure and you still didn’t leave you just closed your eyelids.
Connect all the dots like stars in the sky, your minds a terrific roller-coaster ride.

One you can achieve any impossible task, like grains of sand with eternal endless thoughts as easy as having your eyes closed.
