Small but mighty

Just because I’m small,

doesn’t make me less mighty

I can still kick some a**

Pocket of Grief

People carry around a pocket of grief

some look to others to share their sadness

while others look for someone to place the blame

some find things that bring them comfort

while others hide in a world of shame










Don’t be crushed by your need for perfection

Just excel in your need to strive

Stop choking yourself in your own pressure

Push yourself, but don’t take the dive




Watch the words you say

Watch the words you say because no one wants to hear them

Watch the words you say or you might reveal some sadness

Watch the words you say or their reactions may disappoint you

Watch the words you say because they are not strong enough

Watch the words you say because you are

My Light in the Dark

For the world is dark and full of sorrow

When you see a light you find the strength to follow

One person with care can take some of the pain away

One person alone can help you reach for the strength to fight through each day

You are one of those lights for me

You have brought me the peace that I feel when I look to the sea

Life can be as beautiful as the ocean

Or it can tear you apart, and devour you as a current that strips away your devotion

No matter what becomes of me throughout the years

Just know that you are one of few, that has helped me find the strength to fight my fears

Just know your kindness has helped me find the light in the dark

And with your help I will forever feel the spark

The strength inside of me has been set free

Just like the strong current that pushes the tide in the sea

Thank you for everything you have ever done for me

And remember that the spark you lit within me

Will burn for the rest of my eternity.

Not many people realize just how important mental health is.. So I’m going to say a few things I think people should think about

How does a person become so obese they can barely walk? Why does a smoker continue to smoke even when they can no longer breathe? Why does anyone turn to any type of addiction: food, drugs, sex etc. etc., well I think that their underlying reason for these urges is not being addressed. Logically, if we helped someone (who wanted to be helped) before they reached a debilitating point, don’t you think that would be better for our society as a whole? Instead of treating a problem after the damage has been done? If insurance companies didn’t rule over our healthcare system we might be able to consider giving people better mental health care coverage. Giving those who need it the incentive to seek help. In the mean time most Americans are coping with their problems with unhealthy habits that, unfortunately are not encouraged to be addressed.  Most primary doctors and specialists don’t want to deal with mental health. From my experience most of them avoid it all together. Well, the first step in my opinion to a solution is spreading knowledge, so today I am telling you. MENTAL HEALTH IS IMPORTANT, and the more people that become aware of just how important it is the better. Stress can literally KILL YOU directly or indirectly. Insurance companies get away with murder, highway robbery, fraud, you name it …they do it. Something needs to be done to stop them, but not enough people know what they are doing. Make sure that you vote, because this does mean something. The people elected in congress are supposed to represent us, and if we elect the right people maybe changes can eventually be made. I know that our political system is in shambles, and our current election is the joke of the world. However, I will never give up hope. I  know that in our society when we really need to we will band together, and fight for what is right. Granted the circumstances are usually pretty extreme for a revolution, but I think the deterioration of America’s health and well being is pretty important.  Knowledge is power, so If you agree with me and you care about this, pass my thoughts along to others. Maybe if enough people care about our healthcare and the well being of our country as a whole, we can work together to change it.
