To the non believers
And the underachievers
You are wasting your precious gifts
Wake up from your slumber
Crawl out of your cave
Listen a little closer, that is success calling your name
Your bad influencers, your bad habits
Get your rope ready
They have a death sentence
Step out on that ledge
Fall a thousand times
Dig deep within, treat your fear as if it was Americas #1 crime
Claim your prize
Aim to change history
These gifts were meant to Be shared with the world not remain a mystery
Those whispers you hear
The ones Clouding your head
Turn the night into day
Press on your peddle, begin molding your clay
your enemies will be your foot stool
To the top you will climb with no stops or delays
Say it once no need to repeat it twice
when you greet that enemy turned fan, not this moment but yet some day
Navigate your horizons, speak life into your rested frame
Reach Beyond the stars, outshine the brightest one
Yes society will try to mount road blocks
But That moment you believed in you, destiny had already begun
We are the world
I find it very interesting how dependent our life is on people. We always question why we meet a particular person or distinct group of people but I personally feel like we shouldn't. You can meet some one that will change your life for the better or for the worst. If it's the worst, it's the worst for a reason. That situation or encounter you had with that person might of been a negative burden but if you are able to speak about the situation as if it was past tense then you've survived. You over came your situation, making it a testimony to your life. That situation made you stronger because you over came it, and It made you wiser because it was a new experience. Now that you've experienced it, you now know what to look out for if and when it happens again. We tend to hold grudges against people and have hate towards people when they are the reason we grow. No matter which way you want to put it we GROW! Some May take longer to jump over their Hurdle but not every one moves at the same pace. So let's turn that hate in our heart to love and appreciate PEOPLE. If we spent more time sticking together and helping one another instead of hating one another more people will succeed in life. Lifting one another up, extending a hand to get that person/ people on the same level you are on. It could be physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, etc. Let's make it a domino effect! One person helps another and that person helps another. If this was to take place people would be happier and live a better life. The world would be a better place. Not walk around with their heads hung low because life has gotten the best of them. I'm not saying to start handing out money freely, it can be something as simple as words of encouragement, a referral for employment, informing someone about something they're interested in or even giving away old clothes. Knowing that you've helped some ones life in a uplifting way is amazing ! If we continue to treat each other the way we do, we will tarnish the future generations. Teaching them bad ways of life. No matter what race, color, gender, age we were placed on earth to help each other. Lets make that change for a better tomorrow !
"We are the world.
We are the children.We are the ones who make a brighter day, So let's start giving.There is a choice we're making, Were saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me."
- Michael Jackson
Words, for they have so little meaning.
I open my eyes and meet reality but it still feels as if I am dreaming.
What happened to the bonds that were just as thick an ice burg.
Sun rays beam through and it quickly melts only because those words were heard not seen nor felt.
I want to believe everything that I was told.
But I walk down memory lane wearing heavy garments because this organ on my sleeve always seems to be cold.
Speaking of trust I seem to only know the antonym.
Farewell to me wishing things would change.
No matter how I mapped out the equation the solution always ended up being the same.
That virtue yeah the one that starts with an H
Slowly but surely I envisioned it would soon turn to hate
This is not a circle no it is not your turn.
I should be the one who decides when to let loose.
But you skipped over me and passed me by as if I was a mere game of duck duck goose
I can't say that it's your loss for I don't know if this was meant to be
Shackles and chains were meant to be Broken so that I can break free
Be released from what was tearing me apart mentally
Happiness is the only thing I was trying to attain, how selfish of me.
Take care xoxo
No happy birthdays
No kisses on the first day of school
No escape from my creator
Yellow mixed with green the outcome is usually blue
How do you think I will survive
Two face'd mask, I'll decipher when to switch
Soon the forecast will be predictable
Explaining your absence rehearsed is starting to sound like a pitch
When I meet my knight, how will I know If he's noble
There are two cars driving how will I know which lane to choose
How will I differentiate a snake from a saint
This is a job of a masculine figure, not the channel 9 news
When I blossom who's shield will i hide behind?
When the picture is transparent and I finally comprehend the decisions u've chosen
Will I accept it or play trivia games
Will I place you in a pleasant setting or denounce you to the hall of shame
You see life chooses its own destiny so that means I was fate
No matter how many times you would have tried to avoid this creation
In some way shape or form I would be apart of your genes
I just pray that once these clouds become vivid, u won't jus be a pigment of my imagination
I hope that my character still remains pleasant
You know they say a fatherless child rebels unknowingly
I never want to use to the word abandonment and your name in one sentence
Let's show some acts of courage not the cowardly dog and learn to repent less
How will I know if some of my traits came from you
If some of the things I love you once loved too
When I see the eyes of other kids who's fathers are present
I know I will go into heavy thought
For which fatherless child hasn't
Let's say you reappear when I reach an important Mile stone
I don't know if I'd want to share tears and years of reliving the memory of an abandoned child's home
This choice wasn't chosen by my creator you made your bed your supposed to lay in it
Not act as if I was non existent and avoiding confrontation as if you permanently lived in a no roam zone
How will you live you're life trying to deny that this isn't heavy on your conscious
Finessing your way through life oh u think ur such a little charmer
For i will not Chase behind a boy that never once turned man
Just know when you try to run away from her she's always one step behind also known as Karma
This poem was written for a close friend of mine whos best friend past earlier this year , he left a legacy behind....
Searching for words
Sight has been lost
A life of a loved one
Swept by white wings
Heaven has sent an invitation
Though his physical form has departed
His message reads to finish what he started
For he will not be alone familiar faces will crowd him in
U will now know what it is to live with two guardians
Their son and their brother needs not to worry
Not to have sorrow not to run from pain nor to scurry
To continue a legacy is what u must do
And if u ever search for answers just look to the left of you
Celebrate his life for he is still living through spirit
The sounds of creation anticipates the world for they are waiting to hear it
When the crew checks in he will always remain on the roster
His presence will always be felt as long as you Always Strive And Prosper
Rest In Peace A.S.A.P Yams💜
Set at sea but drowning from the lack of energy
My fangs are starting to show
Dragging my feet as I walk through this dazed and dark place I call life
I open my eyes and see a glimpse of light
It seems as if the closer I am to victory
The farther the steps appear to be
I have hope that I'll make it to the end
In fact I have prepared a speech
What mission do I have to complete today
Am I certain this is the pinnacle I want to reach
Pacing back and forth right to left left to right
Hoping that some one would reach in and grab a hold of my soul
Create a remedy that would be ever lasting
Or am I made of steel ?
I know it's a battle.
A Battle with your mind.
I've Always respected that the ally was time.
Clocks ticking, sun rises, sets and yet I was still like Gum to the pavement.
Listening to your struggle ur journey it became apart of me.
Eyes glittery bells rung whenever home bound was mentioned.
Still not enough air in the earth to grab ur attention.
Over time, over time, over time.
that's the record it never stopped playing.
Walks in the dark the mystery always left me straying.
Drugs to my mind,
addicted to the grind.
Loved to reach the finish line but not just to share the glory.
Yet time was my enemy another book sold a new chapter added to my story.
Cher & Dion new exactly what our title was.
Hope faith & patience, virtues that I pray on,
Ninety days in intervals confusion is what I lay on.
Drove me down lanes of seduction
Eight our Fairy tales unicorns & princesses.
Head stuck in the clouds strung out on the loving,
reality brought me back down.
Wish I can say it was a safe landing,
I was stuck on a island one person one sign stranded
If the stars were all aligned and the universe gave us permission
Then it would be formed by nature and not like magnets urning to be joined dying for recognition
I wonder if that bitch karma is trying to teach me a lesson
If I was Making an ass out of myself was never meant to be apart of my series of questions.
I want to stay in the ring & remain champion fighting 12 rounds ...Floyd
But internally deep within I know the mutual feeling will always return null; void.
You ever tried your hardest to make your self forget about someone? Knowing that everything about them was what you wanted, but you knew that person in particular timing wasn't right? No matter how hard you tried to forget, it only raised ur curiosity. You began to wonder what their 24 hour consisted of. When things aren't understood between two people, things can end up being misconstrued to the point where that other individual won't understand anything other than your absence or your silence, that's your weapon. If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything. Any person you would want to consider as your significant other should not make you feel less of a person you know u are worth. They should never make you feel as if you are devaluing your worth. As women and as human beings we have the right to want the world and all it has to offer we have the right to have feelings we have the right to not agree with your programs and the way you go about things. We have the right to disagree, we have the right to use our Voices and speak what we feel not just go along with whatever is thrown at us. As women we want to be respected, we want the same respect that u would want someone to treat ur mother with . As women we desire a lot, and if five tenth of what we desire was given to us from our significant other I'm more than sure we would stick around to see if we get to the pinnacle. Because love is patient and love is kind and as long as we are seeing some type of effort we will try not to worry. We are kings and queens two powerful beings, united to stand for something in unison. To symbolize love, power, respect, empathy, loyalty, honesty, patience, trust, humility, stability, longevity. This is what I urn for and my ultimatum is happiness. Knowing I have someone to share life with. Share that breath of fresh air when I walk out into the world. Share the brightness of gods light shining down.
