This is a place of ME. This is a place where I will let the walls down and be honest. Joys and stories or tears and heartbreaks, they will all be here. Devotionals to poems, my heart is open to you. I will love well. I will love you and honor you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me.

That was my friend,
She was the star.
I thought we'd be together to the end,
I copied her hair, clothes, and someday her car.

Now she is gone,
I'm at a loss.
Slowly it's starting to dawn,
Now she's not here who's the boss?

I look to see if anyone can give me the answer,
Who could it be?
It's not the debater, punk, or dancer,
It's me.

What are they thinking?
Who am I to be in the spot light?
Into what lie am I sinking?
No, The're looking at me, not tomorrow, tonight!

Oh what should I do?
How should I dress?
It scares me, this thing so new,
My head is spinning into a mess.

How can I be what they need?
Maybe giving them love hope and light.
I can leave behind a seed,
Giving just enough courage to stand and fight.

Learning when to be strong,
How to say no.
Learning when to move on,
How to let go.

Learning not to hand out hurt,
Not to give what I was delt.
Teaching the tine to stand up and assert,
So the dams just melt.

Life's rain, sun, sleet, or snow,
Each one gives something to learn.
Ever lesson helping us grow,
Lighting our hearts till they burn.

Leading them to the one to whom they can hold on,
The one to help them cope.
the only one that makes us strong,
So they can give others hope.

Leading to hope, joy, peace, and love,
Knowing how we all should live.
Following the pure white dove,

Excellent thoughts Sarah! All new starts require some sort of loss and there is a mourning period. But the freshness of a new day paired with a positive attitude, focused on God and His plan...girl you will go far! Continue to be you, figuring out who you are, and love everyone in your path along the way! You rock!

idk if this is just a poem or this is how u fell or if it this is even what think it means (lol retard person here) just know your not the only one...... figuring out who you r is one of the hardest things in life i think..... I'm still tiring to figure out myself cause i never was myself and i ended up copying people and things that wasn't a very good choice cause i didn't have hope or trust in myself an now i'm paying for it all still..... i'm just saying that believe in yourself an u can never go wrong (I stole that last little part from a movie lol but it fits here i guess lol) later....austin
