Year 21


21 years.

21 years fighting, loving, laughing, dreaming, fulfilling, and crying both sad and happy tears.

I’m about to start an era and I can hardly believe it.

I do this every year. But wow, another era will begin with memories I shall not forget.

Here’s to 21 more years, kicking off another 7665
days to the gift known as life that is the ultimate birthday present of all birthday presents.

Because that means without it, I wouldn’t have seen and met all I love and felt their presence.

So here’s to 21 more years chasing glory.

Here’s to 21 years more fulfilling destiny.

Here’s to 21 more years of cementing new chapters in my life story.

Here’s to 21 more years and as long as I live, embracing friends and family.

I thank everyone, whether you just read my work, a friend, or a family member. Know that I’ll be celebrating you as well. Because without you or anything I’ve embraced, there is just no me.

So I thank you once more. Though it’s hard at times, I love this life. And because of you all, I can’t believe a life like this belongs to me.

And with you by my side, I proudly say that I’m ready for Year 21!

Love & Fury

I wipe these tears rolling down my face like raindrops on a window. Condensation.

I cheer up with the joy of waking up to you each day. My heart will never tire of that sensation.

I’ve fought and defeated the worst of evil creations.

I’ve slayed numerous abominations.

I’ve slayed them with love and fury. At times, a very lethal combination.

Not the richest man, perhaps I never will be. But with love and hope, and seeing dreams become reality. That’s the ultimate compensation.

The Fight Will Never End

They’re going to remember I’m unforgettable.

Don’t blame me. Blame all I love along with family. They’re responsible.

Don’t hate on them. Hate on me. I’m unstoppable.

Dreamt and fought for glory. I know anything is possible.

Fighting for love, she makes me feel invincible.

Hard times have come and go, sometimes I felt invisible.

Sometimes I was just miserable.

The pain was visble.

The story is unpredictable.

Only spoiler is I’m going to keep rising. But that was way too predictable.

I’m going to keep on rising.

Do it for the glory, got to keep striving.

If life’s a highway. Buckle up, because I’m driving.

Rear view mirror.

The visions keep getting clearer.

Maybe I’m a fool, but don’t mess with a dreamer.

Don’t question a believer.

I believe I’m going full speed ahead.

No highway bothers me if I keep taking the high road. I remember when all these demons wanted me dead.

Messing with my head.

Now we’re headed to the bakery to get this bread.

1 Month Anniversary

I love the way you hold me in your arms.

I love the way your peace brings me to a whole new world where I don’t have to fear harm.

I love you just the way you are.

So bring me closer, I don’t want to be so far.

Please bring me closer.

Put your head on my shoulder.

Meeting you was when my heart knew the search for true love was over.

I love the way that our crazy ways collide.

Like a vibe that’ll never die.

I love the way you make me feel.

You make me a lucky man, being in your heart feels so surreal.

Happiness in a dream of reality, this love is the real deal.

Telling you everyday the way I feel.

I cherish everything we are.

I love you just the way you are.

It is what is and it really be like that, I love the way you love me.

Happy anniversary!

ALWAYS > SOMEDAYS

I don’t want to see you some days.

I want to see you Mondays to Sundays

I want to wake up to that pretty smile on your beautiful face.

Always by your side against the madness you may face, because your love has sent me light-years further from my dark place.

I want to always show my appreciation, my love, my trust.

You know you’re beautiful and every great thing about you. But acknowledging you is a must.

You’ve asked if I can handle your kind of crazy.

“Can I call you?”, I thought we were done with stupid questions love. I just want to be there to handle it daily.

Home Sweet Home

Your arms open and close behind me like a door.

I never want to leave, I always want more.

It just feels so right.

Cherishing talking on the phone all day and night.

Always there, always inviting. You’re my home.

Never alone.

We talk of our peace. We talk of our madness. She understands me.

Consider me comfy and happy!

Never home alone.

Because you’re my home sweet home!

War Games

Once before, I played that game.

No shame.

With nobody to blame.

I played with fire, and got burned by a self-destructive flame.

I’m one for peace, no longer for violence.

Under this rising light, I have new guidance.

Looking to find more strength, take away the pain.

It’s time for me to reclaim, and claim what I could gain.

I’m different now, and that’s okay – I know not everything will be the same.

I’m spared from asking if I’m insane.

I’ve killed the demons haunting my heart and brain.

And although every scar remains, I’ve locked my evil away with every chain.

I’ve won and survived my war game.

Your Superstar

Can I be the one your heart craves?

Can I be the one your love saves?

Trapped in your gaze.

Never want to escape, I love this maze.

Can’t wait to show my loving ways.

Too damn lucky to meet you, you’re out of this world.

Too damn lucky to love you, I cherish you always my girl.

Long days and nights on the phone.

Laughing and loving, with you I’ll never feel alone.

So can I be your superstar?

Have you ever been struck by a shooting star?

I want to take you to new places.

Bring you to the hometown, introduce you to familiar faces.

Every ounce of spirit within is burning for you. Our love is truly off to the races.

Making It Make Sense

So what if nothing makes sense?

I live in peace with my madness, I rise and I thrive on my demon’s absence.

It may not make sense, but it feels so real.

Happily lost in this reality I’ve learned to be nothing short of surreal.

Grateful, I won.

Forever grateful for all I met. Don’t let go, I think you’re the one.

Maybe this life is more than I could handle.

But who said that? My fire burns brighter than a wildfire on a candle.

Hope I make them all proud of me.

They love me.

Grateful I won, back then it wasn’t so certain I’ll see the light I now see.

I know I’m redeeming.

I know I’m winning.

And if the evil ever returned, the war in my head ends. Because for that, there isn’t another beginning.

In Time Of Healing

Can one really rebuild the bridges that have been burned?

The pain remains. One may find peace, but one may never see past the ashes in those pages of life already turned.

I promise.

My wars. My pain. These lessons won’t go unlearned.

I promise.

I’ll fight harder to keep this energy than I did to get it.

I promise.

I may forgive, but scars make it hard to forget.

I promise.

Part of this fight for this new light is to keep becoming a better man.

I promise.

Never again will I lose myself again. Never again will I go under. And never will I let the darkness define who the hell I am.

I promise.
