»To you«

by Louise Isaac, June 9, 2022

To you.
You aren’t nothing, you are something to someone, you are everything to someone. Stop believing you have no worth. Step back and look at what we’ve overcome! Your not looking!!!!! I know you!!! Now think about it, all the things we’ve gone through that should have destroyed us, it’s been hard, it’s been the worst, it got rough on times but you did it! YOU!
No help, no support, just you! You are incredible so remember that. I know your lost right now and others won’t understand your pain but it’s real because you feel it. You think your to broken to be loved, so damaged that no one can see you, you think your all alone and you feel like the light in you is gone, but I’m here, I never left, I’ve been there when you’ve cried, when you’ve hurt yourself, cut yourself, starved yourself, trained to hard your skin hurt and even when you felt like it was time to give up an let go!!
I stopped you, because that’s when you needed me, I’m the determined part of you, I’m the fight in you, you didn’t need me when you were destroying yourself, because then you’d have succeeded, but now I need you, I need you to find me, look a little harder, dig a little deeper because I’m here, I’m not the gone you, I’m still inside you, I’m the strong you, the you that loves hard, the you that feels hard, who laughs hard, who fights hard and who picks you up.. You just need to believe in you, the whole of you because you got this, I got you, your more than just broken pieces, you are our story, and this story isn’t over!
I love you, the dark you the broke you the dead you, I’m the light in you and I’m here.

Happy birthday In heaven / never gets easier so say, / You should be here with us / To celebrate your day. / / What I would give to hear you call me / daughter, Or here you tap at the door / And shout SCHOOL..

»One year.«

One year ago / 365 days / My suit is ready, / Your on your way. / / You pull up I break down, / Earth swallow me whole. / In my tears I could drown, / Coz This really ain’t cool. / / To the crem I follow, / My heart is broken. / Sad, Empty and hollow, / My fears have woken. / / But your coffin I carried,  sign in to read more »


»I sat at your bedside.«

I sat at your bedside, / my heart was crushed and sore, / but I did my duty to thee end, / til I could do no more. / Holding back tears I watched you sinking, watching you fade away. / And although my / heart was breaking, / I knew you could not stay. / You left behind some aching hearts that  sign in to read more »
