I say this to myself
As I take the stage
Fight your fears
Recite your favorite poems
Sing that song (even if you aren’t great)
Look in the mirror
Don’t take it so seriously
Hell you write the lines
Just follow your writings…..
It’s been the same
Scared of change
Im a creative creature
I thrive off of creating worlds
I didn’t share, caring what you thought
It’s been simmering
Percolating under the surface
Doing myself a disservice
Dormant; long enough
Fear as my crutch
I’m gonna, I wanna share my art
My heart is in a different place
No this won’t erase the past
All I ask is for patience, time
I’m trying to figure it all out
Scream and shout let it all out
My voice, my soul , no control
Just you wait and see
The fire I have in me……..
You want the best for everyone
I need a miracle
I want to move to another place to
Practice my art, fulfill my hearts desire
Fear, finances, hold me back
I send light to receive light
This is my call to the universe
Help me in anyway you can
To the situations, people, places
My heart is full of gratitude for
What’s to come
I work hard, now I have to work smart
By the end of 2017 I plan to be settled in
Send me your positivity
Send me your magic
Help make my dreams come true 🙏🏽
I enjoy eating
Snackfoods, good foods, bad foods
It’s my armor
Invisible, seen, antisocial, mean
I choose this
Hard to quit, Easy to get, goes down smooth
It’s how I cope
Sexuality, obesity, debt, stuck
I pray about it
Love, money, purpose, relationships
It gets better, doesn’t it? Hope.

My face at work most days.
I know I know
Should have dropped this long ago
Why am I still here….
The people in the world man
So nasty, so rude, so entitled
Was it a mistake going into Customer Service ?
I try to be love and light
Try to fight the good fight but
I’m tested on a daily basis
Relieved that I’m staying on my path
Many a people try to steer me away
I’m off work till the next day
Quit and let it all go
That’s the question I pray for guidance
To let me know
I don’t hate it, no
Am I happy is the question
And I’m guessing the only one who knows
Sitting here thinking about you…..
I want to play in the rain with your essence
Eat pizza, while we disagree with pineapple
On that said pizza, I relent it’s ok
Because I’m eating with you
Riverfront walking , our fears talking
Will someone mind if we kiss? It’s been
So long, that walk from the parking lot
To one of many favorite spots. Fuck’em
We dress alike but people can’t see the
Uniform we share is just smiles and happiness
between you and me.
Here ye. Here ye.
Everyone is welcome
Come into my home
Tell me your stories
Life experiences and such
My train, no judge or jury
No hurry to confirm
To the harshness of society
Bring your gifts, share your talents
Let’s all learn together
Color blind in my eyes
We all have the same insides
My place so kiss your girl, kiss your dude
Kiss both on different days, respect
Hold hands in harmony, peace
Be with us,
Hospitality to 1000th degree
Come stay with me
Take me to your land so I can learn all I can
A great time had by all
I promise one and all
Universe my mind and heart is open…..
Dreams are real, vivid productions, high quality writing. Making them come true could be the hard part, afraid to share your art never knowing if you could brighten someone’s day or save a life.
Stuck in the same place , to everything and everyone you know. The encouragement is there from your peers and everywhere but you can’t find it inside yourself, it’s like your deaf to your own praise.
Prayers and meditation that’s what they say, invest in your life, things work out great that way. I’ve been diligent in this practice all along but it’s not enough to make me strong. Strong enough to make that move,
Pursue my dreams.
Life is always changing, I’m still holding on. I’ll have to do it and adjust later. I may fail which makes me shudder with fear, but what else do I do dear? Cry about it, sulk about it, whine about it. Will that make things better? I doubt it.
