Sometimes I feel pressured to be perfect. (Or at least have my shit together and planned out.) I feel pressured to feel as though I should already be successful. At 20, I feel like I should have my life together and probably already started with my dream career and doing all the things that make me happy abundantly. Yet here I am unsure sometimes of what I really want to do with my life concretely. Unsure how to adequately go about getting all of the things I want. The most that I do know is that it must radiate around inspiring others and be filled with activities thoroughly enjoyed by me.
I remind myself that I am indeed doing the best I can with the circumstances and I am consciously trying to find ways to elevate myself and those around me.
Everything takes time, just need to remember to keep going.
If you stop trying then how do you progress?
Slow and steady wins the race right?
Taking a moment to say that I’m really thankful for life and the people around me and those who really try for me. I appreciate them, beyond what some words can express. I truly hope that these people in my life feel loved and appreciated and see my efforts to consider and care for them through whatever.
Also. if you believe in yourself and your dreams. Just keep going baby. Make it yours. Just work hard for it, it’ll be yours eventually. Don’t give up the faith.

If you came for poems, then here you go boo:
Love is desire
It is the yearning for solace and safety in another.
Pure joy and happiness
Moments looping bounds
When real love comes around you’re supposed to drown.
To hold me close
Such bliss I feel when we kiss.
Admire me openly don’t be coy
I want your words to make my heart orgasm
I want others to envy us with joy.
Baby just breathe.
Have a tall glass for me
and a shot of rum for the worms
Say that for me
your heart yearns.
Literature made me kiss pages with my pen’s ink
Take a peek at how I think
Take a little peek inside
A look at the tide…
Steady waves on shallow shores
You know any day you want it
High tide/ low
Literature is to blame
Literature lights my flame
Let it burn.
People can only meet you as far as they’ve met themselves
Check several perspectives
But sometimes one must let go…
Ascend into love
One step at a time.
One moment at a time.
I love you either way
Yet I seem to be your biggest fear
I love you like art
Maybe love you like pizza
One step at a time…
One step at a time
Your heartbeat matches mine
As we’re at the edge of our seats waiting for forever.
4/ I’m inspired by anything beautiful
I’m inspired by you and I.
Remember, in all things do it with love.
