Day 15: A Song That Describes You
This wasn't as easy as one might expect it to be. Therefore, it's six hours late. Deal with it?! (Lol jk!) Actually, I have a disease that fecking sucks and I'm in the midst of a flare and, therefore, I slept through a day of my life. (Again.) Let's see how many times I fall asleep making this card. (4x) >.> Brandon!! (@Arellano1052) Two things!! 1- Thanks for the advice. It worked perfectly. ;-) 2- You're going to enjoy today's selections. *fist bump*
"Skyscraper" by Demi Lovato Because every morning is the same, I wake up raw from the night. The dreams and the nightmares have battered me in my sleep and I am, infallibly, exhausted. I wake up feeling as if I spent the night running away from the demon I fear most. *IF* I slept, I wonder what the point was, other than an opportunity to remind my subconscious mind that there is a power that can torment even it. And so, every morning, I awaken, battered and bruised, scarred and torn....but determined and stubborn as hell. I have my coffee or tea - who knows which mood will suit. I have my fruit, cheese, and yogurt... or maybe it's fruit, cheese, and oatmeal. (I am a creature of habit!!) I listen to the ambience of my home, allowing its peace to surround me, waiting for my son to awaken. There is a lulling calm in the quiet of the morning: a fire crackling, birds chirping amicably, the dogs crunching lazily on their food. My sweet kitty, Onyxia, slinks into my lap. It occurs to me that I almost always find comfort in these moments and in these specific things. I call certain people and objects "mine", without shame, without remorse, because I know that when I do, I claim them with love and honor. For you see, a skyscraper needs support. A lot of support. Or she's going down. I have one of the best support systems EVER. That's for sure. As I ponder this, I realize that I am prevailing. I am fighting this, my war, alone, and I'm surviving. What does that make me?
It makes me a god damned Warrior.
I might be fighting all alone. I might be bruised. I might be scarred. But I'm still alive. "Warrior" by Demi Lovato Excerpt from Warrior: "There's a part of me I can't get back A little girl grew up too fast All it took was once, I'll never be the same Now I'm taking back my life today Nothing left that you can say Cause you are never gonna take the blame anyway Now I'm a warrior I've got thicker skin I'm a warrior I'm stronger than I've ever been And my armor, is made of steel, you can't get in I'm a warrior And you can never hurt me again"
Til later, when I'm forced to decide upon hating something again! 💜💋☺️ @Danse @InPlainSight @arellano1052 @Danidee @AlloBaber @LAVONYORK @paulisadroid @RosePark @InVinsybll @Shannonl5 @alywoah @jordanhamilton @CreetheOtaku @electica @nicolejb @LizArnone @TessStevens @MichaelOgg @emealia @BeannachtOraibh @RaquelArredondo @DavidPap @arnelli
