Why your dreams are for you

It all begins with a thought

Thinking that someday

You will be this or that

One day you will have this or that

It is from that thought

That it grows to a dream

You believe and trust

That someday you will get it

Your dreams are for you

They are yours, they belong to you

Submitting them and giving them

To Christ, makes it known that you have asked and you will receive

You have seeked and you will find

You have knocked and the doors shall be open to you

Your dreams are for you

Believe in them and work for them

Don’t give up!

It’s your pace that matters.

It’s your pace that matters

Focus on you

Even when you don’t understand

Call on God

He will make you understand it all

Do what makes you happy

Be you

And don’t give up in that amazing feeling

That rekindles your heart

That’s God ensuring that all will be well

Write it down

In ink, bold and sure

That it will be there forever

Build a legacy that you will live for

That will make you proud of you.

You don’t have to

You don’t have to buy my love

Win my heart now it’s not tough

You don’t have to pay for care

Just become my near and dear

You don’t have to wipe my tears

Make me smile and give me cheers

You don’t have to sing my song

Dance with me when I am young

You don’t have to stay awake

To make for me a milkshake

You don’t have to wait for me

For lunch if I am busy

You don’t have to pay my bills

It’s not hard like climbing hills

Mandy Mercy.


Sometimes it feels like getting suffocated

Like everything you touch makes you dull

Every moment feels like candy

Sweet and filled with an aroma that gets your eyes sparkle

Sometimes it feels like everything is going your way

Like favor is upon you

Like you are lucky at that special moment

Your mind stops and it doesn’t turn because You feel great

Everything has an impact

Positive or negative

You need to face your fears tackle everything heads on

Even the hardest rocks break them

Because nothing is ever hard to solve

When you feel like nothing is working just calm down and whisper to yourself that

Everything is going to be fine

God is with me in this and no storm shall break my vessel with him inside.

Emotions, hurt motions

They come by when we do not expect it

They are cold inside but no

They are not bleeding no more

They crash everything

They change what you have

They turn you into something

Something that converts

Emotions to hurt motions

The feeling you get after waiting

Just to feel the heat

Pass through your neck

Down through to your stomach

Gambling done by what we call

Butterflies by they are

Emotions converted to hurt motions

The moment you feel like all’s okay

Then suddenly

Tears weld up and

Behind the tears is pain and

You are left wondering why

Why things can be so hard for you

Someone your age should not cope with

Emotions rather hurt motions

Nothing gets me like a good time

It is not more like a movie play down

But its more of sacrifice

A selfless character, smiles and hope

The happiness gets my smile bending like dew on the morning grass


Even though dawn is still sometime away,

Some light fills my heart more than it was yesterday

Share with me and tell me what you feel

Hold my hand and do not let go

Let it bloom just like a fresh rose flower would

Perhaps it is a feeling of optimism, that something good is coming by

To Be Brave

To be brave

Is to face your fears

Find a strong hold

Something that makes you fight on

Even when they encourage you

Wipe those tears

It hurts more than fire grazing the top part of your palm

I know you have something

Something that makes you

Chase your dreams no matter the circumstances

What you believe in builds you

It makes your soul strong

More like

Make the most out of your life

Make memories

Fight and be strong

Forget your fears

You are a fighter

More of a warrior

Don’t give up

Just fight a little longer

Because it’s so worth it in the end

And remember when you got no one to turn to

Just hold on

I will find you.
