Brenda Keough is feeling determined.





We are hurt when others first meet us
We laugh and smile, never showing our scars
We’ve come to believe in our mind; we don’t deserve it
Thinking not of our strengths, but our life of flaws

My friend, what baggage do you carry forward
Whatever you bring is just more added weight
When two souls get to know one another
They do not show all the problems that are on their plate

When you unpack your baggage, you start bleeding
Your heart is locked up in your lonely past
You were a fake smile when your loved one approaches
And they can’t see the shadow your real baggage casts

Broken people try to fix broken people
We fight to stay present in our own truth
Then the past creeps in; we can’t leave it alone
Our hearts won’t open, we keep looking for our lost youth

You’ll find the truth will correct the errors you have in your mind
And when two hearts blend as one they will transform
It’s not the battles we lost or the stories we remember
It’s sharing each precious moment; knowing you weathered the storm…

Your willingness to look at your darkness is what empowers you to change
My angels, the darkness of your mind will be in charge until you see your beauty and take back your strength, your voice, and your life….

Do something different, learn something different….the greatest thing we can do for ourselves in order to grow….is to show others our truth….good the bad and the ugly…can’t stay in a soul or it will never grow…

the angels God send our way will keep us walking in a new truth….because they see something different….

Don’t stay in silent agony

God bless and walk with faith
