LOVE is the Way

A million ways
To speak your mind.
I’ve-found there’s-no-wrong-way.
As long as you
Speak from your heart…
Else there’s a price to pay.

We must surely think
Before we speak.
Our words can cut like knives.
The other side?
Our words can lift;
Both impact others’ lives.

And, were here for others.
That’s my best guess.
I buy the story, Love.
Why not believe
In greater good,
And that we’re guided from above?

Grow Without Regret

Make the climb;
Take on the hill.
You can’t grow stronger
By remaining still.

So push yourself
To learn and grow.
Give it your all.
At least then you’ll-know,

That you lived to the fullest.
There’ll be no regret.
You dared to reach
The goals you set.

Outcomes aside,
If you gave your best,
You can mark it an “A”,
For you grade the test.

You’ll be the judge,
Of the effort you made.
If you cheat yourself,
There’s a price to be paid.

Giants

I’m in your corner,
Whether you know it or not;
Ready to act,
And to give-all that I’ve got;

Filled with love;
The strength of ten men;
More strength than an army
That’s fighting from sin.

An American man,
Behind the scene.
Walking in truth.
You know what i mean.

Above the boss,
That climbed in greed;
Beyond… All the Way Up;
Different gear. Different speed.

It’ll blow your mind,
Like a bomb to your brain;
Born from a path
That began with pain.

Trial throught fire;
Now forged like steel.
Driven by purpose
Like a mouse on a wheel.

No quit in the journey.
No stop in my fight.
It’s-for the-greater-good;
Hundred percent right.

I’m the guy you want ;
The guy you cheer-for;
The man you need
To bust through the door.

Calling out the pink elephants
That you’ve learned to ignore;
Pulling the rug;
Exposing the floor.

Shinning-a-light on the holes,
Calling-out the-foundation.
Once and for all,
Bringing-together a nation.

Right where it hurts;
Straight to our pain.
Walls must come down
For progress and gain.

So that we may move forward;
The truth will come out.
We’ll all look inside,
And see what we are about.

Much greater, the way,
Than we’ve ever known.
Children of light.
Where no one’s alone.

We are one.
Here together, for one another.

Hear the Call

We hear the words
We’ve heard before,
But this time they
Mean something more.

They strike a chord
You never knew,
And now it’s clear
What you must do.

From feeling rose
A simple thought.
Something gave,
Like you’d been caught.

Released to be
The way you need.
You’re shown the path;
You will succeed.

A matter now
Of plan to win.
And, moving past
The way it’s been.

You found your purpose.
You know the why.
Let this drive
The way you try.

Let it fill you
Every day.
With some peace
That’s here to stay.

That comforts you
When times get tough;
When you-want to-say,
I’ve had enough.

You won’t give up;
Your fire’s lit.
Go for your dream.
Refuse to quit.

O.K.

What did you think
Of tbe thing that you saw?
Were there conclusions
That you could draw?

Could you make it out
From where ya sat?
Do-you remember
The guy with the hat?

Takeaways? Answers?
Where are things now?
If you had to guess,
Could you tell me how?

Or, why that was
The way you thought?
Bet you could tie it
To the way you were taught.

Do ya know what i mean?
The way that it was.
As if being guided
By a particular buzz.

Hum and a click,
A chirp in the sky.
As if only you heard it,
And we all wonder why.

Because it’s just so;
Your place in this life.
We all have a back.
We’ve all taken a knife.

To the gut, to the heart,
Comes a matter of feeling;
Wounds from the past,
Forever healing,
Comes a time
Why we’ll reach
For the top of the hill,
Only to get there,
And to find ourselves still.

Still with ourselves
From the day that we came,
But now looking back
Because we have someone to blame;

For something.
For some reason.

For some reason.

Still
Moving on.

Live your Dream

You fit just so;
Just by being;
Regardless of past
And of the future you’re seeing.

Do you know who you are?
Do you know what you’re doing?
Are you at peace with yourself,
Or do you sit around stewing?

Do you work on yourself?
Do you have a plan?
Whatever it is,
Do you believe that you can?

Do you understand,
By now, how things go?
You must be open to learning,
And trying to grow.

Just a step at a time;
That’s all we can do.
Start with a small goal,
Then see it through.

Then move on to another.
Make the most of the day.
Refuse to give up,
And you will find your way.

Think of buckets of time.
Make a plan for each hour.
Your effort’s like sun;
You’ll grow like a flower.

Slowly but surely,
But not without rain;
This comes from thought;
Seeds of your brain.

So be mindful; aware,
Of all that you do.
With focus and practice,
Your dreams may come true.

From a Dream

I woke in a funk
From a dream that I’d had.
I don’t recall it,
But it must have been sad.

But-i-don’t-sit and wallow.
I keep ThinkingAhead.
I stick to my plan
When-I get outta bed.

Excellence takes grit.
It’s a matter of habit.
Eliminate distractions.
Go out and grab it.

Stay the course
Then-in-time you will find
The weight of your fears
Was left behind.

With intention and focus,
And consistent routine,
You’ll find yourself
As the person you’d seen;

The best version of you,
Emerging through trial.
It doesn’t come easy.
It takes a while.

And, along that road,
Most give in;
Unwilling to do
What it takes to win.

Keep believing in you.
Fight harder each day.
You will grow stronger.
You will find your way.
