Hope Coming Back Home

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
― Maya Angelou

All of us in our own way are dealing with something we rather not speak about. We are imperfect, we are tired, we stumble through our days trying to hold on to the promises we made to ourselves, but on the hard days, I remind myself that I am still here, I am alive and bless even in the midst of my circumstances. No matter how dark the days are, I can still choose to let the light in.

This is your reminder, the light is always with us, in us and around us, choose to let it in today. Whatever you are going through I pray you find the courage to overcome and find peace again.

I love this quote by Earnest Hemingway, “We are all a little broken, that’s how the light gets in”

I think it’s fitting for the day and time that we are living in. Normal as we know it no longer exist and we are learning how to pivot and adjust. There are some deep darkness and even some hopelessness in the lives of those we love, and it’s up to us to show them that they are stronger than their circumstances. There’s light along the broken path, Show them the beauty in accepting the truth that change is inevitable and they can rise stronger than before.


You are worthy

Of the music in your soul

The air upon your skin

The light

That has finally return

To your eyes

You told me of the darkness

How you fought and won

And I could feel hope

Bending the edges

Letting the light in

I could see joy

Coming back home

To the soft places

Eternally Beautiful

Meet me here, where the sky touches the earth, and our love is bound to the stars. Written since the dawn of time, our love has broken down all barriers, visible and invisible. We are worthy of this love, this beautiful unwritten truth that has found us at our worse and saved our tornado souls from drowning.

This poem is about finding that one person who connects with you on the soul level. A true kind-hearted person that will lay everything aside just to see you smile on your worse day.

When you find that one person

That gives more than they take

That loves you unconditionally

In good times and bad

That refuses to give up on you

No matter what

This kind of love is rare

And beautiful

If you have it

Cherish it

If you’re searching for it

I pray you find it

If you’ve lost it

I hope it finds you once again

If you’ve found someone that is rare and genuine leave a comment for me: would love to hear about it

Your Heart, My Home

There are days when life feels overwhelming, and the world is ravished by hatred and pain. On those days when it seems like hope is slipping away, I turned and look for you, my lifeline and sweetest miracle. Your presence and your love has kept me grounded, your heart is my home.
