Standing in the shadows with my identity torn, wishing often for my life to be unborn. People tried to take me, wanted to break me, pull at my soul and shame me. Never knowing that I am stronger. I will always fight back.
I may be down, I may get knocked out, but rest assured I’ll bounce right back. You cannot destroy the good in me or God in me.
You cannot take my life and flesh and call it your own. I was a child but now I’ve grown.
I am stronger and I am older, forever bolder because of God in me, not you.
Please don’t take credit you do not deserve. I am free to live as I choose, I am free to rise and free to fall. My choices decide how I live and how I die. I will not give you credit for my demise. I am worthy. I will survive.
Created and born to stand for all, this life I chose is mine not yours. Your toxic delusions, I’ve buried them all.
On a rock I stand. My heart beats for my I AM. There is nothing in this world that can make me fall. Stop thinking you’ve had my all.

To become greater than yourself you have to become more than what you think you were. Who are we really?
My flesh lives in fear although my soul simultaneously lives in hope. Entrapped by social fears and financial restraint, I am free to do anything.
Beauty within reach yet so far away. I am in love, but self loathe. I feel uneasy in my own skin. Pain curbs my will and my flesh steals my might. I want to be free, to feel at one.
I proclaim I am clear minded and worry free, yet I ponder after every interaction “am I good enough” “could I do better” for the world, other people, myself and for this life?!
I question myself. Am I trying too hard to fit in? Is it wrong to be better than I was yesterday, to question myself, my motivations and morals? To be more than I was?
Broken throughout time, and yet unjustifiably pieced together with it, I believe there is more to just existing.
Unequivocally irreversibly enlightened. I have more layers than the proverbial onion. Try peeling them back, you may well cry.
My soul yearns for more. I am stuck within four walls and a shell. My body, my home. Life.
Like a caterpillar I await transcendence within my cocoon. I am just waiting to fly.

If you stood before God today, what would your excuse or reason be to have lived the life you had? Would you be confident that you lived every moment to its potential? Have you buried your dreams before you, yourself, are buried? What excuse do you believe? Every choice we make is one to either move you forward or to remain unchanged. Don’t let another year pass without living to your potential. Be everything you yearn to be. Life is too short to wait. Stop procrastinating and start becoming the person you desire to be, because when life ends there isn’t another opportunity to change it.
I hope with all I am, that I will enter heaven. That the doors will open and angel’s will walk beside me as Jesus greets me and welcomes me home. I hope that this life is not wasted, that the years and the moments in between mean something. I pray that God saves me from myself and the world that surrounds me.

Today, I choose me!
We need to grow as individuals. Remaining stagnant is toxic to your life. Create a vision for your life that compels you to initiate long term change and cycle a growth mentality that gives you the life you truly desire. Make a plan, create a new ritual, then rinse and repeat it until you have a new pattern, one that you’ve chosen intentionally that pays the dividends you actually want. Don’t put it off. The moment we create change is now. – ML Malta
Life changes. Never give up on your dreams. If your life changes then you need to trust the process and be the best person you can be regardless of the circumstances.
That’s right i’m not perfect. BUT I AM 100% WORTH THE INVESTMENT. -ML Malta

Abuse is never okay. Love yourself enough to never accept it as normal. Abuse is not normal nor acceptable!

The past is a place where lessons are learnt and the future is earned. The past gives us the present… learn from it, grow from it and find love because of it. Never allow your past to control your future. Be present in this moment. – Ⓒ ML Malta 2018
