a raw collection of words from my heart

12.6.15

don't forget


"she walked with darkness
dripping off her shoulders
i've seen ghosts
brighter than her soul"
x tumblr x


don't you dare look me in the eye
and tell me
you're not good enough
we both know that
is not true

there's a difference
oh, honey, there is,
between loving others
and loving yourself

you can love and love
other humans
you see the brightness
in their eyes when they
smile
the quiet movements
that speak volumes

but darling,
you have forgotten
how to love yourself

you have forgotten how to
see the brightness in your eyes
when you laugh
you have stopped loving
the soft smile
gracing your lips

oh, you are not perfect
none of us are
but there's Someone who loves
you deeper
than you could ever love yourself
He makes your flaws
your weaknesses
perfect
in His strength

don't you dare forget that





i just got back from church camp, and it was such a great and refreshing time spent with lovely people. i'm working on getting my writing/blogging schedule up again, which is a tad challenging because my family and i are leaving overseas for a month tomorrow x_x but it's gonna be exciting!

  2. SOMETIMES I CHECK BACK BUT I USUALLY FORGET WHAT POSTS I COMMENTED ON AND WHICH ONES I DIDN'T. AHHH. But if I left a special comment, then I will def check back. I just usually forget.

    But this post was like exactly what I needed. I'm going to bookmark it for further use. I will come back and read it whenever. Because it is soooo good. Oh man.
