Never slowing down

As my world spins and spins around me 

My thoughts a shattered mess 

I stop to think to myself 

When is the next test 

Waiting for the next battle 

Never resting 

Never slowing down 

Feeling chained and completely bound 

I only feel peace 

When I listen to the sound 

The music soothes my ranting mind

When I am chained and completely bound 

By everything that crashes through my head 

When I think to myself I’d be better off dead 

When I want to be surrounded by nothing 

I find the one thing that makes me feel human 

The one thing that is always there

Peace is what I find 

When music soothes my mind 

Nyx

When doors open 

Sometimes when you feel like you are about to split in half

Someone comes along and points you towards a new path

Sometimes doors do open

When they were shut before

Sometimes you can find someone

That you completely adore

When you feel like everything is caving in

Sometimes a hand breaks through

Holds on and pulls you out into the light

If this happens do not let go

True kindness and empathy is the best gift given

If we all gave more of this

This world would be a better place

Every word of empathy and kindness

Strengthens us as a whole

Because deep down we are the same

We are all connected

Regardless of mind and body

Everyone has a soul

My guardians of the night 

I write these lines to my guardians 

For the people who saved my life 

I will never forget you 

I owe my strength 

I owe my hope in humanity 

To each and every one of you 

To those who have fought for me 

For those who stood beside a lost child 

For those who showed me empathy 

I will never forget you 

In my heart you will always have a place 

Each and every one of you 

I will never forget your face

You have made me want to believe 

That angels do exist in this life 

For the few who fight for what is right 

You are my guardians of the night 
Nyx

I’m a dreamer 

With the ups and downs I see

Hills and mountains laid out before me

Here and there I find a path 

Here and there I find a stream 

Every now and then a valley 

Like a story book from a dream

I cherish these moments 

They are rare 

When I suffer I take myself there 

To my valley

By the stream 

Where the grass is high 

Where the water is blue 

In this place I feel 

Like I am home 

In this place I feel 

That there is nothing 

That I cannot overcome 
Nyx

My feet in the sand

I feel the ocean pull me 

It is like a beacon of light 

I feel the energy surround me 

It is so powerful 

It is so strong 

It is here in this moment 

With my feet in the sand

This is where I belong 
Nyx

Goodbye to yesterday 

In this life so much is uncertain 

So much is unseen 

There is so much doubt 

One thing I do know 

Is that love is real 

I know it when I look in your eyes

I know it when I hear your voice 

I know it when I feel myself 

Being pulled toward you with a force I can not stop 

A force I can not control 

A force so strong that nothing can keep me from you 

There is no doubt 

There is no fear 

There is only love 

Love that I know will only continue to grow

Night after night 

Year after year 

When my heart races I know yours does the same 

When I am in pain I hear you scream my name 

Because you are my other half

The other side of my soul 

Now I know what it feels like to be whole

Now I know what it feels like to have no doubt or fear 

Because I have found you my love 

Because I have found you my dear 

I will hold your hand in mine as we walk together this way 

Together we step in sync as we say goodbye to yesterday 
Nyx

I rise 

Once again I rise with hope in my heart 

That today will be better than yesterday 

That I will not fall into despair 

That I will not long for sleep 

That I will not pray for peace 

I may be lost 

I may be broken 

I may have lost the words to say 

Words I have already spoken 

Yet I am still here 

I am still here breathing 

I am still here fighting 

I have risen again my friend 

I will fight until I exhale my last breath 

I will fight until there is nothing left 
Nyx

Trust

Through the ups and downs I see

A hand reached out beside me 

I hesitate but take this hand 

Trusting him to catch me before I land 

With every step 

Even though I am thrown 

I somehow find my way 

Somehow I have grown

Into something new 

Somehow I have grown 

Smarter with every step 

All that I can say 

Is that I will not give up 

No matter what comes my way 

I will not stop 

Because I survive 

That is what I do 

Nyx

I see the sun

The cage is opened 

I have stepped through

You unlocked the door

I owe my life to you  

You gave me the freedom to keep fighting 

The strength to push past the door 

The strength to pick myself up

To find who I was before 

I will never forget what you have done 

Because of you my life has begun 

The dawn has come 

Now I see the sun 

Nyx
