To be loved

Once there was a little girl who only wanted to be loved!
She looked in all the wrong places just for a hug.
She was told she had to give more if she wanted to be seen.
She was told she had to be more if she wanted her dream.
She gave, they took... she waited to see.
Not enough was all it ever seemed to be.
So, she gathered her things and turned away, to start a love in a different way.
She found her strength, she found her voice.
She lived a life of her own choice.
She knows if she could choose who she would choose to be.
The choice to choose would be...

It will find you

It's not what you might think
It's better than it ever thought it would be
Right when you believe it's not there
It sneaks in and takes over
Right when you think no more
It's there for you
It waits to see what you will do

It has it's own schedule
It has it's own needs
It has it's own wants
and it wants to be seen

When it's there, will you know it?
When it shines, will you show it?
When it decides to be
Will you allow it to be free?

It doesn't want just a piece of you
It doesn't want just your thoughts
It wants what it wants
And you wont be able to say "stop"

It will move your heart
It will sing to your soul
It has your lips under it's control
It will make you crave it more and more

The more you fight it
The less you'll know
If it feels right, don't let it go
If it wants you, you'll want it more
Take a chance
Open the door
Let love in
It wants you to feel more.

Rescue me

Do you know me?
I hide within the shadows
I run behind the wind
I blend in with the trees
Leaves stumble around me with ease.

Do you see me?
I pass you every day
I walk in your shoes
I glide behind you as you move
I watch you move about your day
I wonder what it's like to be you

Do you hear me?
I reach for you, but I can never get close enough
I scream for you, but my words float above you, and are carried away

I wonder why you can't hear me
I wonder why you wont see me

But, I will wait until you do

For, I am that power you are searching for
I am what you are always hoping to find, but choose to ignore.
I am what you have spent your lifetime looking for

Once you believe in you, then you will see me
Once you find will hear me.
Once you know; you can do anything
You will have set me free
I am that power within you
I'm just waiting for you to believe!!

Looking To Be Seen

I am a survivor of things no one wants to talk about.  
I am a statistic of too many numbers to count.
I am a fighter.
I am a believer that all things are possible.
I have hurt deeper than I thought possible.
I have looked up at the world,
 I have stood next to the sun, and I have cried tears like rain.
I have hidden from life.
 I have asked "why" more times than I care to admit.
I have spoken my truths and fought for my beliefs. 
I have lost but in losing I have won.
I am human.
 I am imperfect
 I am as weak as I am strong.
I am no longer silent. I am no longer hiding.
I am looking for what everyone is looking be seen!
