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

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

TESTIMONY/ˈtestəˌmōnē/

TESTIMONY/ˈtestəˌmōnē/

Just finished watching the visuals for Kelly’ Rowland’s song Dirty Laundry.  Even though I would have loved to see a video with fewer distractions I thought Ms. Rowland looked fabulous in each scene.  In the song Kelly airs out her past secrets of an abusive relationship and how it affected her family and close friends.  I believe that it takes a lot of courage for a person to expose their truths, especially when you’re a celebrity and living in the public eye!  But what about those of us who aren’t living in the public eye?  I often wonder if everyone knew my truths would they still look at me the same.  Growing up in the church I listened to a lot of testimonies.  Some good and some bad, but after each one I heard I looked at that person a little different.  Not in a bad way but with a different set of eyes.  You know after you’ve heard someone’s story you feel like you know more about who they really are.  As great as it is to share your struggle with others; I was also told to be careful who you share your testimony with because they may use it to hurt you.  Sad right?  You could share something so personal with someone and they could later use your story against you?  At the end of the day a person can only hurt you if you give them that power.  So don’t ever give or allow anyone to think that they have that kind of control over your life.  Your past is your past so leave it there and learn from it.  Use it to grow and remember that your story may help someone else grow too!

Thanks Kelly : )

FALL/fôl

Oh Lover of Love
Do You know what it Means
You Fall Deeply and Quickly to fulfill Others dreams
Some Say you Saved them
Some say You Made them
Oh Lover of Love
Are You too blind to See
That Loving You means loving Me
Choosing 1
Not 2 or 3
Not Reminiscing with Others
About a Past that Will never Be
Oh Lover of Love
You think You created It
You fall so Deeply
That you Believe Every statement
But How can you love Me
While Entertaining 2
Oh Lover of Love
Your feelings are Misused
The Path you choose
Will only Confuse you
Oh Lover of Love
Why can’t you See
That your Love has become so Cloudy
It’s Time to Clear the Air
So I can finally Breathe
Oh Lover of Love
Thank you for Releasing Me

ABSTRACT/abˈstrakt/

I’m A sucker for a Guy
With a beautiful Mind
A Conscious Heart with a Smile
That can Light up the Nights sky
A Determination that can Change Nations
Or maybe just your Beliefs
He’ll Show you things You Overlooked
Or Simply couldn’t See
His Goals are Written in the Stars
His Prophecy is no Hypocrisy
His Mentality is Foreign to Most
But Undeniably Clever
His Brain Holds the Keys and the Lever
He has Known he was different since Birth
Never needing Validation
Or cared to give Pointless explanations
To those who could Never understand
This man has everything he has ever Needed in his Hand
He has always Known his Plan
So when you See Him
Recognize his Truths
Respect Him
And He will Respect You

STOP/stäp/

“I’ve been searching for someone to satisfy my every Need…

Won’t you be my inspiration…Be the real love that I need…Real love I’m searching for the real love Someone to set my heart free…Real love I’m searching for a real love”

STOP/stäp/

So I guess I’m in a Mary J. Blige mood today!  I just love how her lyrics speak to so many relatable situations.  “Real Love…I’m searching for a Real Love”.  As I was listening to this song today the lyrics reminded me of a conversation I had with someone a few years back.  He said “Stop searching and pray that you will find.”  Whoop!  Well my initial reaction to his statement was not so nice because I felt like I was being attacked lol.  As men and women we tend to stay on the defense, so naturally I was offended.  But then I thought about what he said and slowly began to digest it.  Now while his objective may have been a little off what he said made sense.  I think as people we’re always searching for something; whether it be inspiration, money, happiness, relationships ect.  However, sometimes we’re so busy looking that we forget to see what’s in front of us.  Like what makes us happy now?  What are we grateful for today?  What opportunities are already in our reach?  I’m sure once we start appreciating what we have…what we need will come or maybe we’ll realize it’s already there ; )

MIND /mīnd/

I fell in Love with the music
Not just the way it made me Feel
Or the Power it had to Heal
It Captured my Mind Body & Soul
It made me feel Invincible
Like I could Rule the World with One Lyric
All I needed was a tight Beat and I could Persuade countries to keep the Peace
I Fell in love with the Music
Every Single beat and Rhyme
Made me feel like I could Go back in Time
Sing the Blues with Billie Holiday
Or set the Mood like Marvin Gaye
The Power it Possesses
Made me Want to Create
A Timeless Piece No man could Duplicate

GRACE /grās/

“My God is an Awesome God he reins from Heaven above with Wisdom, Power and Love my God is an Awesome God”. Man this song just makes me want to get up and praise his name : ) So I woke up today feeling kind of  blue not sure why maybe I just have a lot on my mind. I think I’m at that pivotal point in my life where I feel like every decision I make is so critical! But then I closed my eyes and remembered the God I serve.  As people we have no control over what tomorrow brings all we can do is live for today.  So TODAY I decided not to lean on my own understanding, but to trust and believe in him.  And you know what something began to move in my spirit!!! I began to see a change in my attitude, my way of thinking, my talk and my walk.  Now I feel like I have my armor on and whatever gets thrown at me I’m READY FOR IT!!!

GRACE /grās/

Nights like this
Make me realize how beautiful Life is
Just looking back on where I’ve been
Through every lie and little sin
God’s Grace keeps me time and time again
Cherish the gifts that are given to you
Each breath you take should never be Forsaken
The life You live is Yours for the taking
So Dance until your feet Hurt
And Laugh until you cry
And Take advantage of your Life
For Trouble doesn’t Last Always
And Joy comes in the morning
Love people for Where they’re At
And Not Where They’re Going
Smile just because it’s Sunrise
And when it gets Tough Close your Eyes and simply Trust
God will see you through Every Step of the way
You are his Child there will Soon be Better days
Nights like this
I Thank him for who He is
His Mercy and Grace
Gets Me through the day

COCAINE /kōˈkān/

COCAINE /kōˈkān/

I still think about you from time to Time
The way you use to watch me with your Hazel Green Eyes
Somehow you were able to see through all my Lies
Maybe it was the Wisdom that came with your Age
You made me feel like we were on the same Page
The weekends we spent Exploring the Sheets…
When I stepped into the door my knees grew Instantly Weak
You were Memorized by my butter cream Thighs
And your smile I could not Oblige
But an Overdose of Pleasure

Can cause a Lifetime of Pain
Hell after a while even Cocaine don’t feel the Same

TERRITORY/ˈterəˌtôrē/

TERRITORY/ˈterəˌtôrē/

Mo Betta
Know Betta
My favorite movie and song all wrapped up in one

I love music because It often tells stories I can’t convey

In the most clever way…

 

Isn’t it crazy how an ended relationship causes you to change
Your movement?
Like the places you use to go
You can’t go anymore… And the person you once knew

Is no longer recognizable…

The Territory of LOVE
