You


You

The greatest thing ever

I was ever told

Was I am here for you

You are not alone

Such a simple phrase to deliver

So simple to relay

Yet far reaching it is

To give love in this way

A verbally connected hug

A word of unity

A beautiful moment shared

A divine opportunity

You are not alone now

Your cries I hear and know

It’s okay to be afraid

Love starts to grow

For the true essence of love

Is not in a ceremonial ring

But in the unity of a people

And the comfort that brings

You are not alone in your anguish

Your breaking heart is my key

That you are seeking understanding

Fellowship…humanity

Your situation may be unique

Of that we both know to be true

But the isolation you feel

It’s something I’ve gone through

So when your blue skies turn gloomy

The clouds are dark and grim

I will be there to talk to

Reaching the soul from within

I may not be able to change it

But I will sit and hear your sighs

My heart will reach out

Further than you realize

So scream…yell or sob

I will hold your hand…have your back

Your journey although different

I know where you are at

And I will sit and quietly listen

May shed a tear or two

For I remember that Fall day

When the one I needed…was you

He is Watching Us


He Is Watching Us

I am but a woman

Heard that a lot this year

Try though to muffle my voice

But…I am still here

My issues are very real

My consideration no less

For my pleas are just as important

Without contest

Push me if you may

I am prepared for that too

But expect no less of me

Than I expect of you

I will survive in struggle

I will surpass in deeds

For my Father walks with me

He is all I will ever need

As soon as we all realize

We create our own lines

We will find our truer selves

Deep in our hearts and minds

Do not treat me better

But be fair just the same

For by destroying my will

You have nothing to gain

For beating me down

Is simply destroying you

There are life lessons

Only I can help get through

The nurturing nature of woman

The love at the end of a day

The kind nod of assurance

Saying…it will be okay

The hand that you reach for

The hug that says your home

More support and guidance

Than you have ever known

So the battle…it is over

The winner without question

Is the one with the biggest heart

With our Creator’s intention

Lay your weapons aside

There is no war with us

Keep your eye on the sparrow

For he is watching us

What Would You Do?


What Would You Do?

  I was watching a movie the other night. In a particular scene a parent was yelling at his children and the children muttered under their breath that he didn’t need to speak to them in that manner ; stating they are not animals.

  I found that statement to be funny…yet so true; although I am certain that how I took the statement was not the way the actors lines were meant to be received.

  We do have a tendency to think that we are better than most other living organisms. On one hand, yes we are highly evolved and intelligent creatures; but on the other hand…we often do not use that intelligence.

  I would suppose that we could say animals attack one another, and it looks brutal and senseless. But for one moment let us take it a step further…why are they fighting? Are they fighting because one is wearing a gang color? Are they fighting because one is wearing a pair of shoes or an item of clothing that the other wants? Of course not, that would make them irrational…wouldn’t it? After all of this time, I would think that we would know that all that we NEED in this life will be given to us…in God’s time. The fact that we have actually gotten to a point in our existence where we feel the need to take another’s belongings simply because we do not have them is a sad sight. This can be caused by two basic reasons…one of which is greed…we want more than we have. And for some reason we are of the belief that we should be able to have whatever we want whenever we want it. The second reason is deprivation. There are people walking around on our streets who go without the very basics in life…this can lead to behavior that would seem irrational. However if we, as a society, began treating one another as brother’s and sister’s then we would become proactive in each others lives. Whereas one may say that it is not my problem if another person doesn’t have food to eat, clothes on their backs, or shelter from the cold…we might say we have enough to worry about. I, too, have moments where I have felt like I have a lot on my plate; that I cannot take on another thing. However, when I am communing with God, I am gently reminded that all that I have is a gift. It is our job to look after one another…we are a family with ONE heavenly father. As a family, it is our responsibility to reach out for one another. If you watch a pack of wolves, you will begin to understand what family is about. They are one unit. They hunt for the entire pack…it is NEVER one for himself. Animals have a divine understanding, and unlike human beings they do not try to rationalize why they should veer from their path or purpose.

  We search for reasons not to care about one another. We create boundaries based on a physical difference…a skin color…a texture of hair…an accent or the shape of a facial feature. But underneath all of this…we are exactly the same in design. We all are made up of bones, blood, and skin. We should care and be concerned about one another because we were all created under the same heaven…by the same Creator.

  We will often pass by another human being in the street who has no home…no food…no money…no hope and we will fall to our knees in prayer that night asking for God to help us with one thing or another. And when we do not receive the outcome we had hoped for when we prayed; we will question what God is doing. Perhaps we should re-evaluate our lives…because I have been raised to believe that the homeless man on the street…is GOD. He is not God in the literal sense…but representative of what we are supposed to be doing for God. When we give unselfishly we are rewarded…every time.

  We have become so concerned with judging the actions of people that we fail to see the larger picture. The conditions of one another’s lives are our business…because it is a human condition. Something that affects your neighbor…should feel personal to you, because it could BE you…you could be the one being beaten, abused, raped, and murdered. I always try and speak in a way that everyone may be able to relate to…what if the woman next door who is being abused was your child? Wouldn’t you want her neighbor to look out for her…simply because she is your child? Don’t you think God feels the same way when we see something like that…and do nothing? Wouldn’t it make you sad or angry if someone saw your child freezing to death…with no coat…no food…and they just walked past?  What if that person then turned to you because they wanted a favor?  What would you do?

~~ From my heart to yours

Sweet Warrior


 Although you didn’t realize it I heard you cry

 I know of your pain

And while it may be hard to believe

 I, too, have felt the shame

 

Every blow he has dealt you

I have felt before

And while you may think

You can take no more

 

Please know that you

Are stronger than steel

Even when you are crying

No matter what you may feel

 

His attempt to destroy the light

Within your heart

Has failed miserably every time

 Of that there is no doubt

 

I know you feel alone

Because once I did too

He leaves his weakness

On your face…a bruise

 

I want you to understand

I need you to see

How much you are loved

Starting with me

 

I love your strength

And the resolve on your face

I love the fact that

He can’t keep up with your pace

 

I adore the reminder that with you

God always smiles

And even if it feels like

You haven’t seen it in a while

 

The power behind your smile

In spite of the ongoing pain

Always brings out your sunshine

When he only wants to see rain

 

The sparkle in which

Your eyes always show

Is a constant reminder

Of the love you now know

 

God loves you sweet warrior

Never doubt that fact

I know you feel alone

But no matter where you are at

 

You are being divinely watched over

And his cowardly deeds

Will soon be repaid

With God’s wrath…a fact he should heed

 

Please hold on to this notion

That you are not alone

And you grow stronger

With every punch that is thrown

 

And while I will ask you

 To please find away

To muster up your strength

And quickly walk away

 

Until you are able to break free

Know that you aren’t the only one

And God is watching over you

And His will…soon will be done
