One Way Street

When you get that feeling

Its gut wrenching

That realization.

You poured so much in they left you dry.

You have nothing left to give

You need someone to pour into you

They just ignore you.

Did you ever mean anything to them?

Was it real

Did they just want to take from you Was it all fake?

WAIT…

I thought it was a mutual feeling

Oh really?

You just saw what I could give you

I’m a human being too.
I have feelings

I’m not here just for you

I have things I need to do.

Well that’s fine then

I’ve been gone
None of you care
I see the your true colors

I see the truth
I thank the Lord for this new community
He has given them to me.
I thank you
How?
Your saying we left you

You helped me
I was able to redefine community

After I left

I found you were an example
What not to be

It is a 2 way street
It’s not a one way

Me doing all the giving

I get not everyone can be something for you.

But it was none of you.

With that many people

If you tried I was bound to find one

It could have been a 2 way street

But you decided for me

You made it easy

You showed me a 1 way street

Honestly I should have seen the signs before

I just ignored it

I thought things would change

But you showed me what I really needed

To believe

So thank you

Yeah you slightly broke me

But God grew me

I’m stronger

I’m not going back

That 1 ways street
I’m leaving
You won’t see me again

I’m gone
You can’t fake your grieving
I’m not coming back

You left me blind

In a 1 way street
But that’s fine

Now I know what Not to be

That you for that reality

I thought I could trust you I was standing

Waiting

Maybe

Just maybe

It might turn into a 2 way street

Then I came into reality

You left me

Stranded

Branded

A fool you called me

Crazy

Oh it’s just Kelly
No need to worry She’ll never leave

Well fine don’t worry then

If you decide to try and find me
I won’t be on that one way street

I’m sick of waiting

I see the reality

It’s not just me

But you guys can leave

I’m gone

I won’t be seen

Have fun

Once I leave

I’m done

You can’t see me

Yeah I’ll probably see you again but it won’t be the same

None of you reached out to me

You told me to wait on that street

Then you just left me

Seriously?!

You thought I would never leave

What kind of dummy did you take me to be?

Now I’m free

Well whoever you thought I was that wasn’t me

So thanks for deserting me

On this 1 way street

I found people who truly care for me

I am happy

People truly care

Can’t you see?

Once I slam that door

That’s it from me

So if you change your mind

You can enjoy that one way street

I won’t be coming back that’s for sure

Maybe you should have thought about that before

So In reality
that one way street it changed me

I won’t be the same person you used to see

My God has me and I am free

Sincerely Me.
I’m not sorry this is who I want to be

Enjoy your lonely one way street.

Wow 2 years

It has been a few days past 2 years, Since I have started this blog. I’m considering turning it into more a poetry blog w/ a few blog posts. In this season, I feel like it’s time to make a change. It’s been 2 years. Time to start adding poetry on here and sharing my longer poems.

This is who I am. I am Not ashamed.

I started thinking the other day about a person who used to be in my life my first year of college. Looking back she was toxic for me. She was someone raised Jewish but didn’t believe in how she was raised (Lets call her P). That I do NOT have an issue with, however I am a Christian and not afraid to show it or share my faith. I thought she was a friend it was her and another mutual friend of ours (let’s call the mutual friend n). The friend of ours and I got along really well we both love disney and enjoy Pinterest etc. So it was easy for me and friend N to hang out for a short time before classes and talk about pretty much anything. If you know me I share my faith but do NOT shove it down a person’s throat. Friend N was and is ok with my sharing my faith, because I talk about more than just my faith. My faith is my first priority and main thing in my life but not the only thing. Now this friend P I didn’t realize would talk behind my back. Us three girls were part of a friend group that had originally 1 guy, then added another and one last person. One of these guys started dating friend P. Friend P instantly changed she was so immersed in him we rarely saw her and if we did they were attached at the hip. Personally it wasn’t my place to think about it, it was their relationship. However things started to change she was rude to me, avoided or ignored me and the talking behind my back got worse. However during this friend N and I were still fine and talking. I had decided they weren’t the best group to be around because 2 of the guys made me uncomfortable and said things that were really inappropriate. Friend N still hung with them. One day friend N finally told me when I asked does friend P hate me? I have no idea what I did. I truly did not know. So she tells me about the talking behind my back and lying about me especially to her boyfriend (friend N knew they were pies because we were and are good friends) Now I never knew what I did. In light of keeping this on the shorter version so many more events happened, I was at the end of my rope almost the end of the second semester is where we were at. I decided fine she will ignore me and bad mouth me I’ll text her. I had already deleted her # so I got it from her boyfriend. I text her I don’t know what I did to you but if you have an issue with me I ask you talk to me not bad mouth me and lie about me behind my back. She never did meet up with me I even finally set something up with her but more lies and excuses and occured plus she never showed up to talk so I was done. This whole story shortened Yes this is the shorter version leads up to end of this story and my whole point for this post. I never found out from her what her issue was with me however i asked 1 or 2 of the guys from the group and friend N they all said she didn’t like how N and I talked about disney and other things she didn’t know about and that I shared my faith because it was all I talked about. Me and Friend N talked a lot about it and she agreed we did try to include her and talk about what she wanted. However when we asked her she would just say things like we can talk about whatever, I don’t care, I dont know. It also came out later she said she didn’t like me talking about my faith at all from her mouth when I finally saw her once and asked her about it. I also asked Friend N do I only talk about my faith and God. I never want that to be the only thing I talk about because I don’t want to force it on people. Her response was ” No it was only one weekend and that is understandable you had just come back from a retreat and still you talked about other things.” (I paraphrased that. A little it was a long conversation that was the gist of it) This whole story was my point of getting to sharing my experience and trying to encourage and Christian people who believe what they do. Don’t stop talking about your faith because they don’t like it. I’m not saying shove it down their throats. I am just saying don’t stop altogether talking about it for someone else to be your friend. Stand firm in your faith. If you can’t be yourself around your friends or a friend they aren’t real friends as cliche as it is it’s true. 1 Peter 5:9
“But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.” Other places are facing possible death for their beliefs we are fortunate enough to not be at that point yet, however there are other types of persecutions or people against your faith that you need to stand firm in your faith. Here are some more bible verses below that I hope encourage you. It is so weird to think that this is my first post of 2020. That year is finally here. Not much has changed as people had thought, however God IS on the move and working through so many people. He is working in me, teaching, loving, and growing me. Can’t wait for what is to come and the rest of the year.

Take a leap

Sometimes you just have to take a leap.

You may be scared, question everything, doubting, but you have to take a leap. You can’t always know the outcome. It can be hard or scary to take a leap trust me I know. But God has you he is there. You never know what could happen and might never know if you don’t take that leap.

People can try to nudge you into that leap. Sometimes you need a nudge. Sometimes you need to choose to take that leap.

It has been my experience that if you don’t take that leap God will eventually give you a push or someone to nudge you. If God really wants it to happen he will make a way.

There has been so many times i have missed out on part of my calling or steps to it, I have missed healing, miss opportunities to show God’s love and many more. All of this juat because I didn’t leap when God said to.

God wants what is best he wants you to leap so sometimes you can soar, learn, grow, heal nd many more things. But if you don’t you can’t experience or recieve these things God wants to give you.

Also think of it this way. You could also possibly be hurting not just you but others that God wanted you to reach, show his love to, help, bring to God through HIS power. It is not always just yourself you are hurting.

I wrote this poem earlier today and I think part of it is reminiscing on powerful women who have helped me become who I am. Take the leap or start to. Because they also want what is best for me, and the others I will eventually help through God’s power and all him because he makes it possible for me. I am working on myself in so many ways. One is taking the leap. Not many of you may know…

I finally last semester decided to say yes to God and apply to Go on my first mission this year. If he wants ne to go and which one he wants me to go he will make a way. But I had to take that leap so it is a possibility.

Here is my poem enjoy please

LEAP

You show me constantly

You want to use me

Why do I doubt it then

I don’t doubt you can

I know and beleive you can

I doubt the you want ME part

I know you have brought others

Had then confirm it in me

Told me yourself

So what can I do?

Maybe just take that leap

Don’t think of the what if’s

What could go wrong

What could be

You want me

Believe

You tell me

Just take that leap

I ask if you catch me

Not that you can

But if you want to catch me

You respond with

Leap

Trust me

You have worth to me

I love you

It hurts me when you doubt

When you doubt me wanting you

I got you just leap

I know you love me

You love others

Sometimes to much

You do need that self care

But let me be there

I am part of that self care

You love me

Let me show you I love and want you

You have meaning

I got you so take that leap

Trust me

It take courage and bravery

I know you can

You have all of those things

So just take that and

LEAP

Leap and let me catch you be there

To hold you

Be there to show you

So Leap

Just leap for me

Leap Kelly

Leap

Hard but necessary….

So you know growing up in highschool you have friends. Some friends you have had for year, others you met in highschool. Some friendships you think will last forever.

Unfortunately that is very rare to have even 1 friend after leaving highschool you still constantly talk to or hang out with. It is a hard transition even for the few people like me who are realistic and know that facts to actually experience it. The change from highschool to college even with being more prepared not to really talk to anyone from highschool it is still weird when it actually happens.

I have had some friends I have a friend I have know and been friends with sonce kindergarten. That was a hard friendship change I rarely see him and we never talk. He used to be like a brother to me. My point is it can be hard, scary, sad. But unfortunately you can’t stop change it is inevitable.

Now I am not saying your doomed this will happen to you. I have a friend I met my senior year we still talk and are close. You never know.

But that shows who is real and truly cares about you. The people who still initiate contact really care about you. Friendship (true friendship) is a two way road.

It can be hard being a college student who doesnt drive. It can to be quite honest suck. But that for me showed my true friends and people who cared about me. I live further from my church than I used to when I was living with my parents. But it’s also about compromise I stay at my parents the night before I hang out with a friend and some are willing to pick me up. I know I feel bad asking to be picked up or to get a ride somewhere or home. But some people who have shown they care.

One of those people her name is Kimy she is such a great caring leader and friend. She is such a women of God and her her sister, and brother in Law mean so much to me and have shown they truly care about me and my well being. She is the defintion of a true friend. They all will check in on me make sure I am ok. My friendship or relationship with them is an actual mutal two way relationship. They have treated me like family and are family.

Find the right people because if they truly love and care for you it won’t matter the circumstances they will be there for you and show they care.

Karen is another one. She is such a great mentor and women. She takes precious time out of her life to meet with me and show she care. She is a great women of God. She has shown time and time agian she loves and cares for me.

This are the people you want in your life.

It may be hard but you nees yo cut peoole out of your life if they are super toxic.

God wants what is best for you. There is only so much you can do. You are like the people you surround yourself with. So remember to guard your heart. But careful at the same time to make sure you have those people you can talk to. Like my Kimy, her sister, her brother in law, and Karen.

You will know who wants what’s best for you. They will show it by their actions. Some people just aren’t ready for what you need in a friend. God puts everyone in your life for a reason. This doesn’t mean it is for every maybe just a season. Sometimes its also a lesson.

Really?… Think about both sides (family edition)

Has anyone ever had multiple family members in a scuffle so you know you are going to get dragged in ?  Pretty much everyone probably has am I right?  Well maybe it’s happened more than once to you and one of those times you knew you were gonna get dragged into it but the difference was or is that you were ok with it……..

Speaking from experience we know no one is perfect and everyone will hurt somebody or people maybe unintentionally but…… when it repeats and they do NOT change their actions but Matthew 5 : 11 – 16 says-

11“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its salty taste, it cannot be made salty again. It is good for nothing, except to be thrown out and walked on. 14 “You are the light that gives light to the world. A city that is built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 And people don’t hide a light under a bowl. They put it on a lampstand so the light shines for all the people in the house. 16 In the same way, you should be a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do and will praise your Father in heaven.

The enemy will come to try and stop you from shining your light. The enemy will even go as far as to use family, friends or people who aren’t blood but are family to do that more than once he will do it over and over but remember Matthew 5: 11 – 16. It may be hard to do because it will hurt especially from family. Also it is ok to cut family out if it is dangerous to you and they are toxic; but that doesn’t mean you harden your heart because of it or towards anyone it does Not do any help to anyone especially yourself.

bitterThis is something I am working on doing and coming back from.

Yes it is hard and hurts when people say things or do thing to you like throw insults especially family or friends or people you respect. The way that others treat you when they think no one is around or whenever they treat you horrible shows the real them. Something I have to remind myself is that – Hurt people hurt people. It may be cheesy but I have come to experience it is true. Sometime family is hurting and they think well they are family they have to love or forgive me so they take it out on you or you are the closest one at the moment. Them treating you like that shows their true character.

Also it is not always best to keep things bottled up and not tell people. Sure you don’t know how others are going to respond but you bringing something to their attention or letting them know IN A RESPECTFUL CORRECT WAY then it is on them how they respond.  But you did everything you could and it has been my experience at least with the right people some family some Not. That the correct people will respond right and sometimes they don’t even realize they are doing it. When you bring it to their attention then the ball is in their court it is up to them on their reaction and if they fix it or not but if you did it in the right way and making sure you pray about it with God then your conscience should be clear.

Family fights can be messy, bad, not good but sometimes things need to be said. Also some people may be biased or not be looking at both sides which makes it worse but some things need to be said and discussed.

As someone who is currently going through a  family fight and being  brought into it I have realized that somethings on my part need to be said since I am gonna get brought into it anyway. NOW I just need to make sure I address it correctly and pray about it before I discuss this. I have found sometimes it helps to write down what you want to say ahead of time so you can look at it and figure out how to word it and not blurt it out but to discuss with God before and be ready.

Just something currently on my mind.
