The Stars

Capture-2

Billions of stars represent billions of hearts

Both alive and those that have gone before us

Which one would you say you are?

I’m THAT one, the one with extra sparkle

 

Twinkle, twinkle little star up in the sky

She’s up there singing a little tune

Watching me as I get my shine on

Her light still guides me as I learn

 

When our bodies die, our souls still live

It feels like they give the stars extra shine

When we feel extra sad or unsure of our paths

We can find comfort in the sky up above

 

Twinkle, twinkle little star up in the sky

Where are you on this cold night?

I need you more than ever right now

Can I hop on a cloud and see you?

 

Closing my eyes, I slow my breathing

Listening intently, trying to hear your voice

Willing the voices in my head to grow still

It takes great skill to quiet the noise

 

Twinkle, twinkle little star in the sky

Can you hear me as I call your name?

Is my voice being drowned out by your singing?

I miss singing with you and listening to your voice

 

I hear you, calmly telling me to let go

Let go and trust one we both love

The One that made these very stars I talk to

I feel her hands gently touch my hair

 

Twinkle, twinkle little star in the sky

I still struggle with worry and doubt

But I know deep down You’re with me

I think now I can finally get some sleep

 

Billions of stars represent billions of hearts

Both alive and those that have gone before us

Which one would you say you are?

I’m THAT one, the with the extra sparkle.

Break the Cycle

FB_IMG_1552307272420

I’ve been working really hard to be that person. It’s not an easy feat, at all, but when I look at the world today and see so much hatred, ignorance, cruelty, and bitterness, how can I just be a part of that? Sometimes I look at how people treat others and wonder how they came to act that way. I wonder if they were hurt somehow and ask myself what if they’d been shown some compassion, love, forgiveness, or acceptance? What if they had been taught to do the same by someone? Maybe they’d been hurt really badly, but what if just one person had shown them there was a different way to handle things?

We are NOT what happened to us. We are NOT our pasts. We are NOT our mistakes. We are NOT our illnesses. We are NOT defined by the color of our skin, what neighborhood we come from, who are parents are, how much money we have or don’t have for that matter, our political views, our sexual orientation, or any of that which many decide should label us.

We CAN be whatever we choose, no matter what others say we should be. We CAN be greater than the choices we’ve made thus far. We CAN be better than we have been. We CAN make a difference. One person CAN change things for those around them. We don’t have to let the cycle continue. Don’t let the cycle define or confine you. Let the anger, resentment, bitterness, vengeful actions, and state of constant sadness stop here. The choice is yours.

No Shame in Walking Away

00215-love-%d0%bb%d1%8e%d0%b1%d0%be%d0%b2-analove-red-classylady-love-1-pic-czarno-biale-romantic-pda-hott-bdsm-bondage-devilin-1-morenita-2_large

When you see someone you love in need

Often times the first instinct is to help out

You want to erase all pain, sorrow, & doubt

To see their minds at ease & hearts freed

 

Sometimes, things work out for those we love

Our efforts are successful & they’re grateful

Other times, things go awry and instead they’re hateful

Or we’re simply taken for granted & we cry to heaven above

 

Why is that sometimes those who are supposed to be closest to us

Are the ones that cause us the most heartache & pain

It should be easy to walk away from those only interested in what they can gain

But when there’s bonds that tie, it’s often not easy to leave without a fuss

 

Sometimes we never find the strength to walk away

For we’re family, family sticks together always, right?

Other times though, we rid the toxic from our sight

And we see there’s no shame in not wanting to stay

 

We ought to look out for one another, especially our family

But there’s nothing wrong with not tolerating abuse

Sometimes we find after trying to help for so long, what’s the use?

One can only try for so long before they need to set themselves free.

A World in Chaos

World-Chaos

As we seek to destroy one another and ourselves, I weep

Surely we are not picky about the company we keep

Hatred, greed, and jealousy continues to grow in minds throughout

But it’s love, patience, and peace we need to nurture, of that there’s no doubt

Music Tells My Story

Image

When chaos surrounds my every moment

And I have been subjected to loss & torment

Thoughts & emotions flood my veins

There must be a way to express my anger, sorrow, & pain

 

That’s when I turn to a wondrous thing called music

It helps me tell my story, no matter whether I’m happy or heartsick

I can find songs to tell the world just how I feel

Through the haunting melodies & beautiful harmonies, I am able to heal

 

Music flows within every fiber of my being, it’s a part of who I am

It can settle even the darkest demons within & make me as tame as a lamb

Through it, I can find the solace and answers that I seek

And It gives me a voice when I am otherwise unable to speak

You Set Me Free

Image

For years, I wandered through the ashes of my past

Dwelling on pain, guilt, & heartaches that I thought would forever last

“Will I ever be able to move on, from my yesterdays be set free?”

I cried out to anyone who was willing to hear me

 

Scattered memories lingered deep within my mind

I just couldn’t seem to find a way to leave them behind

There too was laughter, light, & love among the remains

But the darkest memories sang the loudest of refrains

 

As much as I yearned for peace, for the ability to again trust

I was afraid of getting hurt and thought I’d forever deal with a world so unjust

At arms length, I thought it best to hold any promises of hope & love

Though silently, I prayed for things to change, hoping You’d hear me from above

 

Over the years, doubt, hurt, guilt, & fear have been losing their hold

It’s in Him that I have found the ability to be courageous & bold

To tell the evil that both surrounds and lives within me to get out

I do still falter now & then, but most days I am able to push away the fear & doubt

 

I look around me now & see a future so very bright

You have shown me the way by shining Your great light

I am not alone, for You are always with me

And now I want all to know that from my past, You’ve set me free

God, Lead The Way Each Day

Image

As the cold clings to my bones

Refusing to let its hold on me go

The sun shines, radiating off me a golden glow

Renewing within me a fierce hope

 

I have faced worse than this

And always have made it through

I know that there is joy in the days ahead

Realizing this, I no longer face this day with dread

 

Reflecting silently upon my life as it is

It’s not as hopeless as it might seem now and then

Even now, with the difficulties that lay before me

There is so much to be thankful for, more than I sometimes see

 

For every thing I can complain about

There is twice that at least that I can be grateful for

We can easily get wrapped up in the woes we face

It’s not always so easy to remember the beauty, love, & grace

 

But here I stand today, looking up at the sun

And instead of complaining about the cold chill in the air

Somehow I am able to be thankful for that great golden light

Today, I will fight all doubts, insecurities, and fear with all of my might

 

Each day, new struggles arise in the world

As the sun rises, I also face the demons from within

Sometimes I will fall flat on my face, not sure I can last the day

But, as each sun sets, I’ll see I made it because God led the way
