WORDS/wərds/

WORDS/wərds/

When words are just Sounds
Beating Pounding noises
Recognizable tunes
Played Over and over Again
Like a Broken record
That plays Your favorite Song
Except the Meaning is gone
No Lyrics just Sounds
Feeble Increments of breath
Bad air
You are Not wanted Here
Your Huffing and Puffing
Has Sucked Out the life
My life
Your Life
Wasted time
Keep It
Your Noise is No longer Welcomed
The Dryness of your well
Overwhelms
No substance
No Thoughts
Just air
No Cares
You must Be exhausted
Your False prophecies and Idiocies
Have Cost far More Pain than gain
So Keep your wasted Air
It is Not Wanted Here

REACH/rēCH/

Have You ever Reached for something
That wasn’t There?
I finally realized I’ve been Holding on to Air
Grasping and panting for Something that was invisible
I put you on a pedestal
I made You a Hero
You know the Original Black Knight
You broke all the Rules and just lived life
No cares in the world
No One to hold you back
Keeping every Emotion in tact
Master of Passion
Young and free
I was so Open
I Couldn’t see
What it was from the Start
Wanting to believe it was me
That I was Afraid to be the Damsel in distress
But Every Hero has a flaw
And Every damsel has a Cause
I craved you
I made myself believe something I couldn’t see
Told myself Lies to disguise the Truth
Have you ever reached for something
That wasn’t there?
I finally realized I’ve been Holding on to Air

POWER/ˈpou(-ə)r/

POWER/ˈpou(-ə)r/

Yes I know it’s been a minute since my last post, but I’m back and ready to work! I know everyone has made New Year’s Resolutions on how 2014 will be there Best Year EVER!! I LOVE that we can speak things into existence, visualize it and work for it, but I know I’m not perfect so I’m asking God to mold me into what he wants me to be this year. I tried doing it on my own and it didn’t work so I’m going to give it all to him! I want to dedicate 2014 to serving God and putting him first in everything I do! If I do that then I don’t need a New Year’s Resolution. However, there is nothing wrong with adding some self-goals for the New Year. I know the most common New Year’s Resolution for most is to get fit and live a healthier life. Now you may not have additional funds to spend on a gym membership or time to workout, so I have a fun suggestion!! I’m an 80’s baby that loves the 90’s especially 90’s films (yes I know “Do the Right Thing” was made in 89, but that’s technically the 90’s Hahahaha). Anyway as you know from one of my previous post I am a Huge Spike Lee fan being that “Mo Betta Blues” is one of my all-time favorite movies. About a month ago I was scrolling through Netflix looking for something to watch while I fold clothes and I decided to click on “Do the Right Thing”. It’s been so long since I watched it that I forgot about the looooooooong opening credits, but boy am I glad I observed it instead of skipping through it like most people do. Rosie Perez dances her butt off for a good 5 minutes straight while grooving to Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power”. As I tried to mimic her while folding I realized that I was getting the workout of my life lol! So the next time you’re folding clothes or doing something around the house watch “Do the Right Thing” and get your Rosie Perez on. Dancing is the best way to workout without noticing that your actually working out! Plus the scene is so Powerful that you can’t help but join her! Happy New Years : )

HIGH\ˈhī\

HIGH\ˈhī\

I’ve Been an Inspiration

For A few Creations

A Voice to be reckoned with

No need for Validation

Some say You need Me Like kids need Recreation

Your thoughtful Therapist who gives you all the information

You have Traveled the World and seen Many Faces

But None like mine

A Rare Jewel is often Hard to Find

A Woman that gives it to you Raw, Uncut and Real

And you Don’t care if People don’t understand How I make You feel

Feeding you valuable Lessons as time passes By

You second guessin if you can match my High

I speak the Truth candidly

Never doubting Who you Are

Because I know what you Can Be

You say I’m so Mischievous

My lyrical Wordplay is sometimes Genius

Stop Trying to Figure me out

There Is No More room for Doubt

CARPE DIEM \ˈkär-pe-ˈdē-ˌem, -ˈdī-, -əm\

Seize the Day!! This video inspired this post! This man represents the definition of Carpe Diem!! We often miss out on opportunities because we are afraid of the outcome!  We all have one life to live so why waste it? Stop over thinking and live in the moment!  When the camera hits you or opportunity knocks are you ready to perform?  I live by the rule that God will not put more on us than we can bear and that everything happens in his timing. However, God gave us Wisdom and Knowledge which means we are responsible to prepare ourselves to receive his blessings!  So when the camera hits you put on a show! Dance like David danced and walk into your anointing!  Happy Thursday People!  Watch and Enjoy : )

REVEAL/riˈvēl/

I’m trying to Find Her
Where could She be
I feel like she’s Hiding from Me
I found some Old photos
A few Videos Too
She was Driven and knew exactly what to Do
She had Goals and dreams
That were Bigger you See
A Vision that left No Doubt
She wasn’t afraid of a Life Without…
I’m trying to Find her
Where could She be
I Need Her and She needs Me
I’ve been Through some storms
That left some Distress
But I’ve Learned a lot
Through Every Test
I’ve Got something to Tell her
It’s going to Be Okay
Follow Your heart
It will Lead the Way
Trust in God and Believe in you
Don’t let your Struggles Stop You
You will Meet uncertainty
You Will question You
But Remember there is a Path Ordained and True
I’m Trying to Find her
Where could She be
Come Out from the Shadow
And Reveal yourself to Me

ALIVE/əˈlīv/

ALIVE/əˈlīv/

I’ve Been Called an asshole by a couple of Guys
I’ve Been told a few Lies by some Friends of Mine
My Mother has Called me Selfish
And my Father says I’m Blind
But I’ve never let their Words rearrange My Life
You see Words cut like Swords
And Apologies are often Ignored
Painful memories and Thoughts
Are hard to Forgive once they’ve been Explored
I’m not Affected by Most things
I guess my Skin is pretty Tough
If I was a Cow my Hide would be rough

I’ve been through a few Things in Life so It’s becoming harder and harder to Trust…

  ill words and Curses are Only Effective if You give them Life
Remember to always Speak Positivity into your life
I’m Covered under the Blood and the rest is Out of Sight
My Heavenly Father has the key to my heart
And unless he says its okay No Earthly Man can Break it Apart
He is what gets me through Each day
Even when I stray or try to Give Up on Today
He Encourages me to Look ahead for Brighter days
I am a Born Sinner and the World won’t let Me forget
But My God is not Through with Me yet

IMITATION/imiˈtāSHən/

IMITATION/imiˈtāSHən/

Happy Monday people!! I was doing my daily blog rounds and I ran across a clip of a 3 year old girl name Heaven and her mom dancing on the Ellen show. Watching Heaven and her mother dance brought so much joy to my heart. Sometimes I forget to smile and when I see things like this it just makes me smile from my heart. To me smiling from the heart is the best kind of joy a person can experience. Like when you’re in church and you’re praising God or maybe watching a movie that just makes you want to thank God for all he has done? I don’t know about you, but these moments remind me of why we’re here. Even though we shouldn’t need a reminder to be thankful sometimes we do. Heaven and her mother’s connection through dance is just one of many things they do together. When Heaven grows up she will never forget the time she spent imitating her mother and practicing the dance moves she has implemented into her brain. We may not all have children or siblings, but remember that there’s always somebody watching you.  Whether you want them to or not they’re still watching. So always remember if you could replay the tape would you imitate you? As men and women we have a responsibility to be the best we can be because you never know whose watching!

Watch Heaven and her mother on Ellen Below : )

DRIVEN/ˈdrivən/

DRIVEN/ˈdrivən/

I Was just a Girl you Met in passing

Before We knew it we were Established

Officially intertwined in each other’s Lies

Selfishly Hoping we could Disguise

What we Were feeling

The Power of Healing

The blind Leading the blind

No Roofs no Ceilings

Just Time

That’s all We had

Our biggest Sacrifice

Not Thinking Twice

Just Livin

Driven

Individuals Comprehending

The World

The Space

The Time…

Recipe/ˈresəˌpē/

Recipe/ˈresəˌpē/

What is It

Everyone wants to Know

The thing that Keeps Giving and never Ceases to Grow

The Action that Shows truths

Not the Emotion we like to Wear

The Acceptance of forgiveness

While examining Ourselves

There is No comparison

Or Measurement of how Great it should Be

The action Will show Everything you Need

We Chase the Wardrobe of what We think it should be

The Embellishments of Jewels are just for the Eyes to See

The Silicon Fire will eventually Run out

The efficient Supply of water will Never Leave a drought

Things that are Watered always seem to Grow

Things that Catch Fire always Burn a hole
