The Wait

Underneath the pain lies the hope of love
Deep within my soul there’s a light buried beneath the darkness
Freeing my mind, prepared for something beautiful
My ugliness has blossomed into a black rose
Destiny has revealed itself as something worth the wait
Patiently waiting for my love to outlast the hate

The Door

Making my way through the door of love
one foot through the door, peeping in
Scared of the answers
Prepared for the worst

How will the work out?
Will I be a victim?
Love let me know before I come through
Can u really depend on you

Lift me up and take me high
I’m afraid of you and don’t know why
Show me the truth for I shall not worry
I want my life to end with a lovely story

Distant Love

The distant closeness of love
So far away wanting it near
I wonder so much, why isn’t it here
I need the feeling, I want the happiness

Struggling to maintain, losing my mind
Looking for something worth my time
I need the touch, I want the feel
I need something sure, something real

Can you make me believe?
Or will I lose all hope?
In my heart you can live
Find me now, before I leave

You Can’t Be Me [Poem]

see

You will never be what you’re trying to be trying to be me

You will never see what you’re trying to see looking at me

You want to be so much but can’t take your eyes away from me

You can’t be anything, you are what you see and that’s me

I’m the star of your life and you’re nothing to you

Who are you?

We’re not the same two

Be whoever you want to be, but you cannot be me

Why do you stare? What do you want?

I have nothing for you, please go on your way

As hard as I try to create distance, you beg me to stay

Please Listen

Be aware of who is dragging you down. There are people in your life right now that want nothing but the worst for you. Do you know who those people are? It’s hard to figure out exactly who those people are, especially when they’re trying to remain hidden. God will give you signs to direct you to whomever it is that isn’t supposed to be in your life.

There may be some things being said about you and you don’t know who to believe. Go to the source of those words and figure out how certain people react to those words and maybe you’ll be able to figure out who the blame should be placed on. It’s not easy to bring out the snakes lying in the grass. Sometimes it’s best to wait around until they reveal themselves.

Talk less and listen more. That’s how you get a better idea of who’s saying what, instead of talking and becoming a part of the problem. The less you talk, the more time you have to listen. The more you listen, the more you know who’s for you and against you.

In Living Color

The world is a blank canvas for the people to create a beautiful picture. Our minds are the paintbrushes, which are able to draw anything imaginable. Some of paint with more dull colors than others, but that’s your choice. I choose to paint with a full arsenal of colors. My painting is full of the most beautiful colors in the world. My colors consist of family, friends, helping others, and my hobbies. I will use those colors until my canvas is full and I’ve created a priceless piece of art. What colors are you bringing to the table? We can choose to paint on this canvas of life alone, or we can join forces and paint away, making a beautiful picture together. If you are painting with dull colors, find a way to reach brighter and more lively colors. Never go over anything you pain in the world. Once the paint is down, it stays. If you have to work on getting better, take the time┬áto do so. The only way to get better is to keep on painting no matter what. What will your final image show?

Triumph

Do you dare tell me I can’t do something?
I will defy earth’s odds and soar like a phoenix reborn
Do you dare tell me I’m not good enough?
I will prove I’m worthy to walk with kings
Do you dare tell me I do not care?
I will love everything on this earth will equality
Do not tell me what possible because I will only prove that even the impossible is somehow capable
Dare not doubt me for I will find a way to make due
Dare if you will and I will indeed prove you wrong
