Different

I am imperfectly perfect
My flaws are my wonders
I can only be who am I right now
Distance the world from my wonders

I am beautifully disfigured
Something undone
Working towards being whole
Piece me together by breaking me down

You will never know how great I am
Falling down trying to stand
Where we part is where we meet

Happiness Is Forever

Embrace life. Never let life get the best of you. There is always something to happy about. There’s also much to be sad about, but be sure to embrace the joy and not the pain. Shout it out loud. Be happier than you’re sad and you’ll be able to enjoy life to the fullest. Do not get discouraged when you’re feeling down, for it is only temporary. Happiness is forever.

True Love

There’s something about everyone worth loving. You have the choice to give someone the benefit of the doubt or to doubt them. Take the high road and love them. That’s exactly how God intended it. Not everyone is going to make you happy but that’s their fault. If they do not know how to make others love them than that’s a flaw within themselves. You have to personally know how to love someone no matter how good or bad they treat you. Finding that love gives you the freedom to be happier than you could ever imagine. If you can’t love everyone, then find a way to love yourself unconditionally. That love for yourself opens the gates to finding a way to love all things just as much as you love yourself. If you do not truly love yourself then it’ll be hard to find a way to love anything.

Soaring

A light in the sky caught my eye
I felt so good and didn’t know why
Evenly low but feeling so high
Spreading my wings, preparing to fly

Here I am willing to go
Where I’m going, I really don’t know
I feel great, I feel better than ever
Now is time and it’s better than never

Lift me high and let me soar
Give me a boost and lift me more
God has me flying and won’t let go
My spiritual growth is finally ready to show

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.

Edge of Darkness

edge

On the edge of darkness, searching for a light

A place where I have no will or no might

Everything I’ve ever loved is completely out of sight

Will I ever return from the edge or will I fall over?

There’s no one who will help me

My hand is extended but no one reaches out

At this point, my life is full of doubt

Why do I have limits?

Why am I here?

As good as I may feel

The darkness is still here

I’ll be forever searching for the light

Until it finally shines bright

In Living Color

world-map-paint-drop-michael-tompsett

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?
