Bad

I walked through the fire covered in gasoline
Everything I encountered was out of a magazine
The money, cars and fame was all apart of some game
It was a burning desire ignited by flame
Wealth and greed could be there for sure
I burned inside the need for more
Wanting it all, not caring if I fall

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

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?

Ups and Downs

From the pain we store inside
To life’s roller coaster ride
We go up and we go down
We go side to side
Our pride keeps us high
And the downs keep us low
No matter where we go,
We carry emotions with us
There’s no escape
For our emotions build us up
They can also break us down
Make us smike, make us frown
Be happy or be sad
That’s the choices we have

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

Make Believe

image

Passion is poison
Seeping through our very souls
Love is hate
The feeling is so bold
Joy is pain
Taking over our spirit
Our vision is distorted
It’s too loud to hear it
We are living to die
Slowly fading away
What is really isn’t
Make believing we’re real
Faking our lives until we die

Afloat

sail

I set sail across a tear filled ocean

The wave of emotions put me in motion

My sails blew hard as I gasped for relief

I flowed gently across the pain and the grief

One day I would come to reach my destination

Slowly sailing across lost hope and frustration

If I shall sink, would it be so bad?

To drown in the pain would be to overcome at last

But no oh no, I sail and I sail

Because eventually I will reach land

and I will finally exhale
