There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this!
When people can walk away from you: let them walk.
I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling
you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.

The bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us.
For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.
- 1 John 2:19 -

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.
Let them go.

And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over.

And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead.
You've got to know when it's dead.
You've got to know when it's over.
Let me tell you something.
I've got the gift of good-bye.
It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye.

It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful,
and I know whatever God means for me to have
He'll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it.
Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to
..LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains
...LET IT GO!!!
If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth
...LET IT GO!!!
If someone has angered you
... LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge
.. LET IT GO!!!
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction
... LET IT GO!!!

2006

It seems anymore I have such a hard time trying to keep up with these posts on a daily basis. Not because I don't want to but because I truly have nothing to put in the daily posts. Every day is the same in my life.

Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.

2004

today I drew
today I slept
today I ate
today I thought
today I was happy
today I was sad
today I was lonely
today I was content
today I laughed
today I cried
today I thought
today was today

2003

within the realm of emptiness there is still a dream
faith, hope, desire want
within the realm of solitude there is still a thought
need, fulfillment, trust, and belief

2002

Lost in the dark
No power
Just Ice

2001

I wonder at the wonderment of it all

2000

Well it hurt, the ripping tearing sensation of a wound inflected, stupidity and negligence the culprit. Stitches later, and a couple of shots as well, I believe I have learned my lesson well.

1999

The pounding sneaks in
throbbing pain
all in the head?

If you didn't guess I have a headache, one so intense that thinking is a great task just to begin. So thus no real thoughts for today.

1998

Confusion, and excitement war inside of me.
Guilt over not feeling guilty, but pleased.
I don't have any answers, I just know
and for me that is okay, for I fear the questions have no answers

Why, or how someone loves can not be explained in words
why those feelings change over time and can not be retrieved
will always remain a mystery.

1997

Better be ignorant of a matter than half know it.
- Publilius Syrus -
