Decide


Decide

Things do not just happen

When you are riddled with a headache

When your day just feels heavy

Think back to the energy

Which you entertain

Bad things do not just happen

Set aside the ideas that

You are always sick…

Bad things always happen to you

That you just don’t make enough money…

These are self-proclaimed excuses for what is happening

Think instead…about…

Who you gave your energy to

What did you talk about

What jokes did you laugh at

It is perfectly okay to have a negative thought

It, in fact, is natural…

But did you follow it up with a thought of

Gratitude

Love

Kindness

Consideration?

Think hard about those which we give our attention to

What are they talking about…

And how you responded to them

Did you engage in gossip

Or did you shine light on the conversation

You will be amazed at the people who will not

Engage in negative conversations about others

Once they realize that you won’t play a part in them

Participate in your own life

Things do not just happen

We call to them

You cannot call upon indifference and expect kindness

You cannot conjure up hate and expect to prosper

What you call upon the universe to give you

You most certainly will receive

So be aware of your words

Be thoughtful in your speech

Be loving in even your thoughts

What you produce can be no more than what you are

Never expect a banana to grow on an orange tree

Be the light in which you seek

Be the compassion

Kindness

Empathetic

Loving

Beautiful

Person…that you will search for

Life is not a random series of events

The world is not out to get you

But sometimes you have to look outside of yourself

Detach yourself from your emotions

Think like a God or Goddess

Set aside the ideas of what about me

What do I deserve

When will I get this or that

When will it be my time…

Because my loves…

Your time is NOW…

Conquer your thoughts

And the victory will be yours

Remember that someone somewhere

Is watching …

Wondering why we laughed at their expense

Why our entertainment

Came at such a high price to them…

And for one moment …

Be them…

Embrace your beauty…

Which is held within

And shine your light into the darkness

Participate in your own life

And watch what beauty and love you can create

And it is so simple…

Because you only have to

Decide


Embrace your moments
They are over far to fast
Create loving memories
That will forever last
Laugh away your clouds
Attract positive energy
Celebrate yourself
And all humanity
Now this may be harder
But to everyone…try to forgive
Remember it matters not
How we died…but how we lived
So sprinkle that sunshine
Through your smile and grace
You were born from greatness
It’s written all over your face
So enjoy your day
With all your might
May your life be filled with love
And your heart with light
I Love you !

What About Me


What About Me

I hate you she cries

Vile names he blurts out

Mommy and Daddy

What’s wrong now

This marriage was a mistake

A huge waste of my time

What about me?

Says innocent eyes

You are worthless

Cheater not a real man

But what about me?

Wrings her little hands

Hit me I dare you

I will have you locked up

Mommy what about me

Cries a voice not so tough

Throw out my clothes

I can start a life with her

As inaudible sobs

Careful not to stir

Mommy and Daddy

If this was a big mistake

What does that make me

Just another promise to break?

Start another life

Throw my daddy in prison

Do you hear her heart breaking

Are you even listening?

She loves you both

Use caution in your debates

Or you…Mommy and Daddy

Will be her first heart ache

So when waging this war

Use caution and care

For a little…what about me

May be standing there

I Have Love


I Have Love

I have a great love
Wait..I know what you are thinking
Shaking your heads because
You think you know what I mean
I have a great love
Its my true source and Light
It keeps me alert in the day
Warm through out the night
It keeps me centered and focused
It is the SOURCE of my being
Be aware my beauties…im deeper
Than what you are seeing
I am loved by my family …yes
But even they are a gift to me
Like the sun rising over mountains
Which sets behind the sea
I am loved I’m saying
You are loved too
By the AM that I AM
IN all that we do
SO today when you decide
You have nothing…no place
Remember in this moment and always
You are loved with no thought of space
On this wonderful day
Or this peaceful night
I wish you now and always
Love filled with LIGHT

The Cafe


The Cafe

I was sitting quietly

 In a small café

Nothing too fancy

Just out of the way

An older woman sat

Across all alone

Along came a man…

Give me all that you own

The woman was unshaken

And softly smiled

How are you child…

Sit down a while

This angered the stranger

He had a menacing frown

Give me your money

I don’t want to sit down

I will give you all I have

She went on to say

But it won’t change

What led you here today

I know your path has been troubled

You’ve come so far

But listen to my child…

Because I see who you are

I don’t see your money or home

Those things can vary

I see a life made from love

Even if you are wary

I see the little boy

Who still holds out hope

That the troubled man…

On the unsteady slope

Will become the angel

That he was meant to be

It wasn’t chance son…

That brought you to me

Your whole life was planned

To the very last letter

The message I have for you…

May make things better

For any other person

You may have selected

May have given up

Or worse than you expected

But I, dear child,

I see you deeply

One with a good heart…

Who loves uniquely

I see the child in your soul

Crying for relief

I see the beauty in your eyes…

So far from a thief

Sit down my son…

Let me buy you a meal

What I am giving…

You could never steal

I am giving you your freedom

I am handing you your soul

I am feeding a broken heart…

And a life yet untold

I watched his hardened face soften…

A tear I wiped away

When the woman at the table

Spared his soul that day

I watched intently,

As she touched his hand so smooth

And by the end of her meal …

I saw him too

I saw the life filled with obstacles

And tears by the mile

A loving face he had….

Hidden away for a while

But by the time they both left the place

One thing I can decree

IN him she saw GOD…

Just as she saw it in me

Bless the woman for this lesson…

May we all again learn

That from which we came…

We most certainly shall return

Burying Love


Burying Love

I watched a little boy today

He was sad within his eyes

Too often I had seen it before

Yes this pain can’t be disguised

His nine year old sister

Bullied with cruel words of hate

And on some level

I think we all can relate

He wrote a letter to Santa

Said God is too busy…I cried

You could see determination in him

With the depth of his sigh

He loved his sister so deeply

Her pain was his too

How we tend to justify

The evils that we do

The mother she whispered

With tears in her eyes

Her daughter said

Sometimes…I just want to die

They called her fat and dumb

Hideous was the word they used

That brought me here now

Why I am talking to you

Children are becoming assailants

Their weapon a sharp tongue

Those helpless victims

Are also our young

They aren’t weak or less

They aren’t bull’s eye targets

But they may be a “Too Soon” grave

If somehow we don’t stop it

Use caution in your speech

As if ONE higher is standing there

We must first check our hearts

Are they still there?

We are better than this

Better than what we have seen

What happened to guarding our sisters

Remember she is a Queen

Children are dying

Giving up hope

Don’t say suicide is wrong

And hand them a rope

Don’t say be nice to all

Then talk poorly of others

Bullying is taught

By father’s and mother’s

This is not what God wants for us

This is not a path of reason

Humanity must start now

It is never out of season

Bullies aren’t stealing lunch money

They aren’t sticking out a tongue

They are threatening and disturbing

The peace of our young

If we start today

Look a little longer at your reflection

See the beauty of God

Upon further inspection

For we came from a Great Source

And Greatness is what shall be

But what you want for yourself

You should also want for me

For I am…You are…We are

Descendants of Pure Light

We let things go wrong

But can also make them right

Teach love by being love

In everything you do and say

And maybe…I hope

We won’t bury a love today

Promises


Promises

In my silent time today

Where I talk with my Source

I asked are we all loved

The response was yes, of course

Then I pondered for a moment

If that is truly the case

When did we create the lie

When did we fall off base

When did we decide that we

Could treat another so bad

What gives us the authority

To make others feel so sad

Why must we tear apart

The hopes and dreams others create

That…I heard intently

Is a lifelong debate

Mankind did not seek permission

From any higher power when

He decided to enslave and maim

Starting way back then

No one sought enlightenment

When evil came to mind

For that wrong which was done

Does not begin from the divine

For to hold back or desecrate

A man or group of the like

Is similar to searching for sunrise

But only during the night

It’s as backwards as

Placing horse behind a cart

Like playing make believe

With a most fragile heart

The problem worsens said my Source

When we make no moves to the latter

When my children have forgotten

All that really does matter

Like a smile out of nowhere

Rain making plants grow

Loving our fellow man

Allowing that love to show

We can hardly see the light

When the homeless are blamed

For our inability to reach out

Like Creation’s going insane

But if we do not wake up soon

The world will continue to create

The problems it has bred

Just more evil choices we’ll make

Learn to love immediately

For the seed of God runs deep

And the cost of sin is higher

Than any grudge we keep

Reach out for one another

Remember it may be only one hand

But like the great earthly beaches

It all started with a grain of sand

Create a chain of understanding

A tie that binds from your core

Show the love of your ancestors

And that of theirs before

So in your moments of silence

When our Creator touches you deep

Remember it’s not what you say

But the promises you should keep

Today


Today

I used to take moments for granted

Put it off til tomorrow I would say

I was a procrastinator…the worst kind

But I tell you…not today

I would sparingly send “I love You’s”

Pick and choose calls I returned

But not today I tell you

There is a painful lesson I learned

When we think there is always tomorrow

When we buy into that lie we create

Our window of opportunity will close

If we do not act…today

Is there is someone in your life

That you have taken for granted

I would strongly suggest

No…I am going to demand it

Life is short as we know it

And once a life line ends

We’re left with regret boundless

No way to make amends

Make the most of this moment

For moments aren’t supposed to last

Like sand in an hourglass

Our time falls away so fast

I once did what most do

I didn’t take enough time to say

I love you…I need you

But I promise…not today

For the love in our lives isn’t forever

They have work here also to do

Don’t put off until next time

Or you will have regret too

Make the most of this time

Before the sands of life wash it away

The pain of “what if’s” could be eased

If we made the most of today

Give love and be love always

Leave no room for sorrow

The time for action is today

Don’t put it off til tomorrow

Even up to this last few lines

I want to give you love in this way

Don’t postpone what needs to be done

Tell them “I Love You” today

All That You Do


All That You Do

I wonder when it happened

When we started to deface

The integrity of others

Solely based on their race

I’m not even certain when

Races came to be

We certainly weren’t created

From this hostility

It is man made but I wonder

Why would one think

That being superior

Would make all others shrink?

Hmmm, one must realize

With the logic we have

That looking down on others

Just makes us look bad

I mean God created all things

Who are we to say

What is better…who is brighter

How are we living today

We merely exist, I tell you

Due to our own selfish pride

It’s clear we are making errors

We are barely getting by

The planet is dying

Our air is dirty

Everyday we prove

Why we are unworthy

Yet every single day goes by

More hate being spread

And we are deciding

Who is better off dead

There is no superior man

No greater race

No perfect culture

This is not OUR space

May God be patient

With our egotistical ways

And may we find His Grace

Before kneeling to pray

So here’s to us all

Man and woman alike

Love all skin tones

Black yellow red or white

Let us recall with humility

The love inserted in our being

Allow us to spread God’s joy

To all people and things

May we all cross the finish line

With the answer to this

Did you give back to My Creation

Or did you merely exist

What did you contribute

Our Father will ask

Did you love all things

It was your only task

My friends give love…be love

In all that you do

Shine light and hope

As He has shone on you

Be the greater being

Be the example of our Creator

You are part of a plan

Of something so much greater

So when looking down on others

Remember this poem’s for you

Reminding all to shine brighter

In all that you do

The Very Start


The Very Start

I know sometimes it is hard

I hear your lonely heart cries

Your life may feel guilt ridden

Getting harder to disguise

You loved me so well in my life

Don’t feel bad when sunshine comes

It’s a reminder of how well you loved me

Just where we came from

I know at times you feel lonely

But don’t let that be the only thing

For God has so much more in store

Before giving you your angel wings

So while your heart may feel broken

And your life may seem sad at times too

Remember there is a place in my heart

That only belonged to you

Don’t waste a tear on my loss

For we gained so much more

You taught me about life and love

What being sisters are really for

So I will watch down on you fondly

I will lightly touch your heart

To remind you how you touched

My life from the very start
