Afraid to Fly

I’m afraid to fly. I’m not afraid to fall.

I’ve fallen so many times before. I perfect failure. It’s my specialty.

Getting back up takes the strongest motivation combined with energy and a strong mental capacity. Do I have any of this stamina left in my heart?

Crawling myself up out of that well; the desolate emptiness calls to me consistently.

I want to give up but I cannot tip-toe the line of the pursuit of happiness and the pursuit of emptiness.

It’s time I cracked down and took a step forward. I’m standing still and watching the days pass me by, it’s not the life I ever wished for. Depression, chronic pain, they are swallow me whole.

There is still this drive in me to succeed. I want to love and I want to live. I want to get out of bed and taste experiences, the rare days that I was able to greet the sunshine with open arms.

I want to be inspired and to be inspiring. I yearn to write, to record the misgivings and the struggles of the beaten and the damned.

I can’t waste my days bed-ridden and defeated any more.


Thank you to my loyal readers. I love you all so much and I enjoy this little community that I have been growing online. If it weren’t for the support of my family, my boyfriend, and you readers, I’d still be wasting my days, not pursuing my dreams. If I want to succeed, I must crack down. I’m going to spend my days writing. Blogs, my short stories, my poems. Applying for freelance jobs and entering contests.

    1. I’m working on it. I had a little epiphany yesterday so I’m striving to be my best. I stay in bed all day because of fibro, unless I’m at work. I’ve started yoga again. I got outta the house today to go to the store. I’m sitting down trying not to be distracted by political conversations on Facebook and focus on my writing. LOL

      1. Thank you, lady! I love yours also but I haven’t gotten any e-mails saying you’ve posted recently. Am I still not getting them or have you just been busy & not posted? Idk if it’s my subscription or what but it’s getting annoying. Lol


      2. Nope, I just have been too busy with the kids but I am working on it! I will probably have some time this weekend. Be on the lookout! 🙂
