It might look like things are at their darkest.
Makes picking up your burdens and trying again seems pointless.
Perhaps even preposterous.
Oh, don’t lose faith in yourself.
So many things are doable once you put your mind to it.
Strive to find little successes and chain them in a row.
It matters seeing those breadcrumbs of progress.
Believe that you can climb out of the dark depths.
Lift yourself one bit at a time.
Eventually you will feel the sun of triumph on your face.
Been shaking the pair in my hand and wondering
Obviously the way they land is random
Now that wasn’t an appealing thought
Every ounce of him wanted to believe in luck, that now was his time
So when they came up snake eyes, he knew he had been right
Couldn’t believe I even had a shot, to be honest
Last thing I thought would happen was that you liked me too
Old feelings of insecurity and inadequacy swamped me when we were apart, but together, that was something amazing
So when I popped the question I was at an emotional breaking point
Even though you said no, I…
Believe in what cannot be seen
Leave the mundane behind and fly with gossamer wings
Infuse your life with the magic around you
Nothing can really hold you back when you brace the impossible
Don’t hesitate and close your eyes and see
Can I have one of your buns?
Really? Are you trying to make me mad?
On the contrary. I am trying to take away your sin.
Sin? Why is me having these buns a sin?
So I believe the sin in question would be gluttony. Hand one over and be saved.
But the plot will come if you just type words. You just have to believe.
Like that would really happen. He laughed bitterly.
All it meant was the letter vomit on the page might be some sort of Rorschach story form.
He closed the document and went to bed. He had seen enough.
Don’t give in. You can do this
Even if they’ve pushed you down ten times, you’ve got to get back up
Finish the race and show yourself who you know you are
Yanking victory from those trolls who didn’t believe
Don’t believe I chose this life
Even though I’ve lived it for over fifty years
Couldn’t really find a single point where
I didn’t coast along life’s eddy currents
So you see, I am a true floater
It might infuriate some of you
Or it might make me your hero
Now that, dear reader, seems to be your…
Lincoln believed he was very confident in who he was, but still had this aching desire to be called pretty by someone. Hell, anyone. He was called many things, but never that magical word.
Finally, after a long time of searching everywhere, he finally heard the words, “You are pretty, Lincoln.” It put such a huge smile on his face.
He wished he could have hugged the man in the mirror who said it, but instead he wrapped his arms around himself. It might not be much, but it was a start.
He had to be the first to believe.
Really can’t believe you said “I do”
Even though it was twenty-three years ago
Because I still hear the echoes of those words every day
Each touch and smile deepen my bond to you
Could never imagine not taking this journey with you
Counting myself blessed beyond any measure
Always and forever yours.
