I have feelings too

My heart had trusted your heart

The happiness we felt was real

And then darkness came over

I remembered you no more

You shredded me and I let you

I should have fought back but I

let you tear me to pieces until I was no more


 Then when all my tears were gone

I saw a beautiful light

Stronger and powerful than most

Somehow it stood me up

Made me new and beautiful

I knew I would never be the same


I walk with that light

I was reborn again

I had forgotten the past

I looked to the future

And I had a new strength

My fingers press on the metallic wire

I nod my head to the side

And close my eyes and forget

I forget all that is bad

I remember all that is beautiful

I remember all that is full of life

I let go and let my body relax

I close my eyes and think of nothing

I think only of the magic my fingers will make

I hum softly and let my fingers create

Melodies full of life and sound

And my fingers finally soar away

The Beginning


Ever since she was a tiny bud this

beautiful jewel always imagined a world

A world no one knew

A world that only she and her mind

could understand

She wanted to describe this magical place

This place where anything could happen

And everything was right

Where music was life

God the ruler

Romance reigned

And there was peace

As she grew she decided to

Create words on paper

“This world…”

This just came out of nowhere..I really like the picture. Enjoy! 🙂

My Heart Flutters

I was in that summer camp that day

And my heart fluttered

Hi hair was brown and soft

His eyes were blue

His voice was what I liked best

Strong and deep

His smile was crooked but I loved it best that way

He was tall and amazing. The best guy I have ever met

All the girls thought he was wonderful, including me

But in the end he chose me… and I am glad he did

In response to the daily post: He’s (She’s) So Fine


No Words

I stare out the window and I have no words, no feelings

I have nothing. My heart feels heavy and shattered.

I don’t ever want to feel like that and I have no reason to

I have a loving family and friends

But I feel beaten up

I feel dead and broken

I want to walk away from everything

From every thought that causes me this dark feeling

But I can’t

I glide but I am not in that moment

I think and look and wonder and hope

But nothing makes me happy anymore

I pretend but deep inside I’m lost and I am not who I show to be

I want to allow God to work through me but my heart is too hard

And sometimes all of this burden causes me to have no words


It says it all….

Land of Confusion


Numbers. Symbols. Letters.

Words that never made sense.

Equations that I will never get.

A jumble of numbers and letters

That would probably never be used in my life

Math is a Land of Confusion for me.

I have never and will never master it

Math is just a subject I will never understand no matter how much I practice.


Inspired by the Daily Prompt titled: Land of Confusion. Math was a subject and is a subject I will never understand. Ask me for help and I will just say “Look it up”‘. Math was a nightmare for me. I don’t know how I ever passed that class and got promoted to advanced level when I was in school, I don’t know how but all I know is that I just don’t get it.

The Beauty: A piece of writing describing someone from my mind


Do not know the artist of this painting

She gracefully moves on with a glow about her

Tall, peaceful, beautiful

Her long black hair cascading down her back

Her smile serenity to all who see it and her green eyes light to the helpless

A gorgeous melody that leaves her lips calming  the adventurers

The Beauty

All that she touches she heals

The forest her dear home, her happiness

Her face full of light and glow from the green healthy life

That surrounds her

Out stretching her arm to any creature in need

She guides them to their destination, to their last journey when its their time

To their hope and paradise

The Beauty

She walks in peace and in grace

A bright sunshine to the dark world

The queen that one cannot seem to describe

That feels and loves

The Beauty

But life passes by and goes

She sees through her eyes of wisdom that the world is changing

And so is she

She slowly perishes away into a superior unknown world

Yet she turns one last time at what once used to be her forest

Her world and home that she has lost to evil

Remembering the beauty and innocent life

That used to be and hoping that in someway it gets saved


* Just a short piece of writing. Hope you all enjoy it 🙂

What Words Can Do

Words can hurt

Words can heal

Words can transform

Words can change

Words are stronger than actions

No matter what they say

Words are heavy

Words are weak

Words can be left unsaid

Or can be said

Words can either bring you down


Make you fight back


Words…there is so much that a person can cause with just one single word or with just saying something.

Our Night Walks

A Dark Night

The moon shining

A cool wind blowing about us

Making our dresses and shirts fly up

Shrieks and giggles escaping our mouths

We laugh

We scream

We skip, the six of us together

Guys and girls running and piggyback riding

Swinging around and jumping

Staring up at the sky

As we walk or run

We talk, we fight,

we joke, we debate,

we think, we wonder, or

Silence is our only company

Our Night Walks

Is what defines us

Our Night Walks

Is Our journey, where everything happens

The happiness, the heartbreaks

The fears, the hopes

Our dreams

And one day it will all end

One day Our Night Walks will be no more

But we will always remember Our Night Walks

As a special memory, not a forgotten one


Just a poem that was written based on my experience and what I also wish I had.

Poem © The Reading Girl



“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”  – Paulo Coelho

Fear STOPS us from doing what we want

Fear doesn’t help us to succeed at all

Fear  STOPS us from opportunities

Fear is something that our mind causes

So that we do nothing in life

Fear is something sad

But you can fight fear by doing something

That scares you everyday

You can fight fear by telling your mind to go on

I wrote this because I have felt fear before. I have had fears before. I don’t know if it turned out good but I just had to share it. Enjoy!

A Poem or something


Something happened to me this week. Very personal, which made me feel happy and kind of sad. I found myself creating these words in my mind and I just had to write them down. I don’t know what to name my writing or if it evens make sense…but all I know is that if something comes to your mind you should write it down. I just had to share it with you guys.


I was confused

I was enchanted

Everything was fine

But then everything changed

I thought I was hurt

But in a way I felt relieved 

Then I decided to walk beside the light

The light that had always been there

But I had ignored

I walked by Faith 

Letting Faith guide me

Letting Him guide me

Fixing my problems 

All was mended in a

Way that was unexpected to me

I knew that even though

It would never be the same

I knew that everything 

That was wrong had turned right

And because I had walked

By Faith The Light

Did its work fixing all that was Dark

I really don’t care how the stanzas are because this is just something that came to my mind and was not even edited or anything.

This writing has a meaning to it. I am sure some of you would figure it out. If you do let me know below.

True Beauty


Painting by Andrei Belichenko

I used to worry  too much about physical beauty

Used to think it was more important than anything

In a way it is good to have a bit of beauty

It somehow makes you feel wonderful knowing you can turn heads

But then I learned and someone told me that beauty fades away

As time passes by

That it won’t matter anymore

What will matter is how your heart is

How you acted in your life towards other

How our spiritual souls are

And as we walk more through that path

Our internal beauty Shines brighter and we glow.

That is True Beauty

What things that are Good are stonger than the bad?

Love is Stronger than Hate

Hope is Stronger than Fear

Light is Stronger than Darkness

Faith is Stronger than Doubt

Bravery is Stronger than Weakness

Happiness is Stronger than Sadness

Our Souls and Spirits are Stronger than this world of Confusion

Anything is Stronger than the bad if you just Believe it is

Something You Loose

Something Horrible


Something Strong

Something Fragile


It Will

Always be a Feeling

You won’t Forget

Hope by The Reading Girl

 That quote above describes exactly how I feel sometimes. I love the idea of writing and have always wanted to write something of my own…but sometimes I think too much about it or  just let time pass by and I never write.  Well I finally decided to write something of my own and share it with you guys. I want to post at least every week a little piece of writing I have done. I want to know what you guys think about what I wrote and if it needs a little work or something. I have never shared my writing with you guys or anybody really so I am a bit nervous…but go ahead and be honest…tell me what you think about it.

Quick note: Its rather a bit sad but it has its happy ending. Enjoy!

Hope by The Reading Girl

As I stand in my sweet shore I wrap my arms around medescription

I look out to the blue waters of

the ocean to the infinities

That go beyond into another

world,  The wind blowing

furiously at me ,Tugging like its

trying to

Tumble me, A single lone tear

falls,falls down into the ground, A

single tear brings memories back,

Memories sweet

And Bitter, Memories of the past and memories of not so long ago

I feel like I am falling, Falling down a dark hole, a hole full of emptiness

And pain, What used to make me happy and full of life I saw as something horrible

Why did you go? Why did that happen to you? Why is life so unfair? The good are

Gone but the bad are still here, It’s something I’ll never get

I look up at the gray sky and as the tears fall I scream, Scream everything out

Like if it will make things better, In a way they do, Feeling a bit better

A sudden flutter is soft in my cheek, I turn and a fragile, delicate, beautiful small t

hing is there blue, purple, full of color and life…A butterfly…My Hope

A strange sound comes from nowhere…my laugh, happy, and alive

The butterfly lands in my palm and stays there as if comforting me and I smile

Thinking of what you once told me “Even if it hurts we got to stand up and move on

No matter the difficulty. No matter the pain or what happened” As I stand the

Butterfly gracefully flies away as if her duty is done, I turn starting a new path

Walking into the unknown, The hope that the butterfly gave me made me look far

into the future, Made me realize that you will always be in my heart and I never lost

You, Your spirit just went into a better place where I will soon see you,

As I walk into the infinity of happy surprises.

 That’s all! Enjoy and please let me know what you think 🙂

Before Sunrise

 I have gone through a lot in my life and there are days when I feel like I wish I had never woken up or I ask myself: “Why do I even live?” This quote is beautiful. I have decided to name this post “Before Sunrise” because I think a sunrise represents a new day, new ideas, new hopes, new purposes, new blessing, new beginnings. A sunrise is beautiful just like the new day that is coming. As I wake up in the morning this is what I repeat each time I open my eyes from a deep sleep or a beautiful dream wishing that I had stayed in that perfect world of my hope and beauty.

But through all of that I have been glad and thankful for at least being alive, having all my body parts, never being sick one day of my life, never have suffered an accident. Thankful for what I have which is enough for me right now even if I sometimes wished I had more luxurious things. Thankful that even when I wake up with pain and sometimes sadness I have a LIFE and can make a difference in someone’s life. I have made many mistakes. All of us has. And my life may not be perfect. Nobody’s life is but I am very thankful that I have been blessed in many ways. God has given me a beautiful family, life, friends,and plans. And I have been very happy with the life I have. So I wake up every morning not depressed but thinking:

“This is a new day, a new beginning, a new sunrise.”

“I wake up and Open my eyes

from a long dream full of happiness

and think 

“Another long day to go through”

but I remember that I have been blessed

and that God loves me and created me

and repeat:

“This is a new day, a new beginning, a new sunrise.”
