Get The Best

How will an eagle soar?
When it awaits the north wind to pillar
Mount in space with conserving wings
To arrive it’s pre-destined venue
Patience is a virtue

How will the lion prey and feed?
When it ambushes the meat of the field
Sprint beyond measures with muscular limbs
To prey living being for well being
Wisdom the principal thing

How will the ant shelter?
When it digs deep beyond limiting fetter
Together they pick soil particles to gather
To attain food, welfare and probably water
Foreseeing is an intellectual banner for answer

How will I breed ideas from patient incubation
When I sit tight for utopia imagination
Focus in tranquility and poetic collation
To poetic rhymes and stunning observation
Talent is tautologically a marvelous wonder—–

My Other Half

The moment I gazed across your beauty,
I felt a sense of wonder and desire.
My heart melted when the twinkling of your eye emerged to my sight;
I couldn’t stop imagining a future of love and compassion between us.
After some time passes,
You gave me an opportunity to prove our connection.
The keyhole to our souls unlock as we let each other in,
And true love grows like the pulchritudinous white lotus.
Memories began to strengthen our bond,
As we surpassed every quandary that crossed our path.
Thinking back to every milestone we’ve accomplished;
Certainty of knowing you are the one I’ll cherish forever luxuriate.
Today I pronounce to always treasure our fondness for one another,
To respect and honor you until my last breath of life.
Destiny will unfold the truth of how fate brought us together;
Our spirits become one for the rest of eternity.

Moving Forward

Women do not be scared to move on from hurt,
Whether, it’s physical, mental or emotional abuse.
We all experienced some kind of lie in the truth,
That he loves us is beyond imaginable pain.
These fears and scars will never go away.
But, I’m here to tell you, you’re stronger than you think,
Although, “otherwise” says our mentality.
How much more will we endure?
The only way is through the back door.
Do not look back at what could have been but forward,
And start getting things in order.
There is love in the eyes of another,
Not a man but family and friends.
Those will always be with you until the end.
We need to recognize it’s not all our fault,
So, stop blaming yourself for all those thoughts,
It’s just a way to keep you down.
From being a strong and unique beauty in life,
Hold your head up and wear that crown,
That was meant for you, as it was passed down.
From generation to generation as you too is a queen,
Your beauty is everything.
Next time you feeling some type of way,
Just know that someone cares and her name is me.
I am here for those hurt, lonely and weak.

Painted On Smile

Lipstick put on
like a painted on smile
nobody will notice
the sadness for awhile

Mascara applied
to lashes of disguise
nobody will notice
the moisture in her eyes

Blush brushed on
hiding tear streaked cheeks
covering up sorrow
of the love she seeks

A painted on face
to hide the pain
that she could never tell
or try to explain

So she will smile
she will laugh
she will glow
and nobody will ever know

The mask that she wears
protects her from herself
with just a few touchups
she can become someone else

Until she gets home
and washes off her wall
only to have to face
her feelings after all…..

This Little Lullaby

I sit in the darkness, no one else is awake.
Listening to your lullaby, I can feel my self break.
The melody starts to whisper, in its little mocking tone.
It covers me like a blanket, it wont leave me alone.
Its getting louder now, but I know I have to stay.
Your voice is like torture, but I can’t help but press play.

The song start to play on an endless repeat.
I’m just stuck in the motions, I’ve excepted my defeat.
It kills me to listen, but it’s all I have left of you.
Your voice is my addiction, and I’m relapsing to soon.
Please no! I scream as the song comes to an end.
It’s ending to soon, you can’t leave me again.
I’ve done it now, there is no going back.
With this little lullaby, I’m under attack.

I sit in the darkness, I’m wide awake.
Why did I ever press play, and make that mistake.
The haunting notes are stuck in my head.
It used to help me sleep, but I guess sleeps for the dead.
And since I can’t sleep, I might as well give in.
The damages is done, so I just press play again..

I sit in the darkness, no light can be seen.
How could the angles do something so mean.
The sun is burnt out, the stars are too.
The world was only bright, when it was lit by you.

The song start to play on an endless repeat.
I’m just stuck in the motions, I’ve excepted my defeat.
It kills me to listen, but what am I supposed to do
Your voice is my addiction, and I’m relapsing to soon.
Please no! I screamed as your heart made its last repetition.
But the song plays on, carrying the tradition.
I’ve done it now, I can only sit and listen.
This little lullaby has me wishing it was never written.

When Morning Comes

When morning comes-
Look for joy
not in the obvious
Creaks and crevices
Of outside
spaces
But look within
To the inner
“self’
Holds the core to
Your heart
Center-
everyday
that you rise
Walk
talk
and
Smile
Turn your eyes
to
the heavenly
Skies
Know that joy comes
On the cusp of
A morning sun

My Love

My love is like a light
shining so gracefully
and ever so bright
why do it shine so
much you say maybe
because of that smile
each and every day my
love is pure as the driven
snow no matter what it will
begin to show I knew I was
in love from the moment that
we met I just didn’t know how
to tell you yet because your
beauty made me so nervous I
kinda felt like I was unworthy
My love is a candle just burning
for desire me and you together
that’ll only take us higher
so believe me when i say my
love last forever so long as
you don’t break my heart we can
make it through any weather.
