Voice It To Me

Voice It To Me

I have this voice ringing inside my mind, yearning and fighting to simply be heard by those who walk by me, those who enter and leave my life, those who mean little and those who mean a lot, those who have a heart and those who have a soul; My voice raises to be heard by every person who exists on this land.

My heart is pounding for every second of everyday to reach out to every person in need, every person who is struggling, every person who is strong and brave, every person who feels as if they don’t have a voice, every person who gets taken for granted, every person who is fighting for a place in this world, every person far and near, every person who has a heart that beats like mine.

I have a passion inside me, a fire burning hot, a light shinning bright, that will bring joy to the rest of the world one smile at a time, one question (like ‘How are you?’) at a time, one simple act of kindness at a time. Sometimes we just need someone to sit us down and give us a minute in their arms, a minute of their time, a minute to feel accepted, a minute to acknowledge their worth, a minute to feel your love.

My sensitive ears listen to the quiet wind as it blows the leaves on each branch of the trees, to the loud silence in a classroom filled of stressed college students, to the light footsteps to every person who walks by knowing they have a part in their story they might never tell. And they will listen to your questions, to your complaints, to your worries, to your frustrations, to your anger, to your disappointments, to your confusion. They will listen to you for hours and hours without end as you tell me about your long day at work, about your exhausting conversation with someone, about the conflict you’re having with someone, about the future you plan on having, about the past you lived through, about the people who mean the most to you, about the ones who have hurt you.

My eyes will watch you as you make your way through your days, learning little by little how to live. I will watch you grow up; I will watch you learn; I will watch you finally achieve all yours goals; I will watch you chase all your dreams; I will watch you laugh out loud in joy and in happiness; I will watch you pick yourself up each and every time you fall down; I will watch you make your mark on this world because it deserves to hear you roar!

What is your story? What will you do?

Love You…

Love You…

My heart breaks for you when I see your pain filled eyes. My heart yearns for you when I know how alone you may feel. My heart aches for you when the distance between us is nothing but everything that consumes my thoughts.

I see how you look at her. I see how you react and play it off cool. I see the little things I’m sure you know I notice…because that’s who we are.

I watch you walk around restlessly, unsure what to do next. I watch you contemplate things, your eyes directed at the ground. I watch you light up with joy when she comes around.

I wonder if you do the same when you see me.

I know you watch and read me; you know me like the back of your hand. I know you see the pain in my eyes as I walk through life. Despite that…my heart breaks for you when I see your pain filled eyes. My heart yearns for you when I know how alone you may feel. My heart aches for you when the distance between us is nothing but everything that consumes my thoughts.

I’m not sure what I want from you, but I know of what I want to give you. I want to give you that escape from life you deserve so, so much. I want to give you that break you really need from everything that comes at you from above. I want to give you a reason to smile every day, a reason to laugh, a reason to enjoy your days. I want to give you hope for tomorrow, hope that the pain will end, hope in a better future that will never end.

I want you to be able to look at me and know you are loved. I want you to be able to talk to me, no judgement or hesitation coming to interrupt. I want you to be able to look at your life and be okay. I want you to be able to be happy and carefree just like most were before they turned ten.

I want that life for you that I know you deserve.

I don’t have to be in it. I can watch from afar. I just need to know you’re going to be okay. I just need to know that you’re happy, and not in pain.

I guess all I can really say is…my heart breaks for you when I see your pain filled eyes. My heart yearns for you when I know how alone you may feel. My heart aches for you when the distance between us is nothing but everything that consumes my thoughts.
