moving forward

But Hope is Strong

Folder: 
The Light

There's always going to be a river flowing downstream

When you want to go upward

There's always going to be a light in the sky


But you can always walk the dry land,

Moving on your feet, you can push a little harder

Why won't you just keep your burdens light?


Where there is a will, there is a way

At least that's what wise men always say

So why should we leave ourselves to drown?


There is hope for you, for me,

For the wicked too

When you're already on the bottom,

What do you have to lose?

We may be small,

Oh, but hope is so strong

When you make up your mind to push on


Where there is a will, there is a way 

At least that's what wise men always say

So why should we leave ourselves to drown?


There's always going to be a mountain standing in your way,

But baby you can go around it

There's always going to be a light in the night


There is hope for you, for me,

For the wicked too

When you're already on the bottom,

What do you have to lose?

We may be small,

Oh, but hope is so strong

When you make up your mind to push on

I've been feeling inspired again. This is the first song I've written in years, and it's good to be back at it again. 

 

Peace and love,

 

Kait

Don't be Delicate

 

Don’t be careful,

Don’t be delicate,

Fuck what anyone has ever told you,

Their transcendent propaganda will never be you,

Your resume will never tell anyone just how soft your hands are,

How much better you smile than me,

Be the ocean inside yourself,

The one when it swells,

Soaks you in shame,

The raging currents of you,

Slamming against your disheveled shorelines,

Are among the most beautiful I’ve seen,

We can go there together,

Let the toxic water run through your toes,

Build castles with the mud and rocks along your coast,

Scrape the cobwebs out of your seashells and make them your diamonds,

We are in this room,

Where thousands have been before,

Walls blank like a new chalk board,

Faces young and afraid,

Alive and stupid,

It is our time in our world so bureaucratic,

So mechanical,

To be the envy of the old,

Your tears are grease on my aging pistons,

Sliding up and down my cylindrical soul,

Hitting the carbon and chemicals in my throat,

Your laugh yanks at my pull start,

My valves popping, hurling clockwork onto the floor,

Are you sadness and shame?

Denial and betrayal?

Their mixed drink is exquisite,

I can hardly put you down,

Let me get drunk off you just this once,

Be my empty bottle in the morning,

I'll be yours,

So I can pray until the end of time,

That we wash up on eachother's shores,

To waste away together,

Until this ocean finally takes us,

 

The Storm

I feel lost in my thoughts
Only the worst comes to mind
No bright side to be found
Like the calm before a storm
All seems good right now
But the storm will eventually come

Nothing good can come from a storm
It leaves mayhem and sadness in it's wake
But you can't live in the mayhem and sadness
You have to rebuild and overcome it

Even though at the time it's hard
Eventually the sun will come out
And even if there's still rain
The rainbow will be a beautiful sight.

Tell me what ya'll think!

A New Start

The word "new" is all around me
New year
New teachers
New classes
New students
New friends
And of course new crushes.
But those are not the two words that i think
The words that place a smile on my face
New Start
Those two words mean a world of possibilites
But most importantly they mean putting the past behind me
No more fear
No more regrets
Just a future full of wonder
A better year to mark the day
The day where happiness will come and stay

A poem bout my Junior year :) A new start/chapter in my life.

Arise and Soar

I will arise from these ashes
With a solid strength
The past will not define me
Because I have persevered
I will write the next chapter
Becoming more powerful and courageous
I am breaking free from this prison
To soar high blissfully
Your chains can no longer confine me
Because I can see past you now
I want to taste the sweetness of my own life
And enjoy every bit of it without you

Moving Forward

Go ahead and give me those dirty looks

Because I see right through you

Go ahead and give me your silent treatment

Because I don’t want to hear you

Go ahead and use your twisted manipulation

Because I have grown stronger

At the end of the day I know that I have tried

I know that I was fair

I know that I was patient

I know that I was supportive

I know that I was understanding

It breaks my heart that is has to be this way

But it would hurt more if it stayed the same
