Before You’re Dirt

How-do-you approach the day?
Go through the motions,
So you can get paid?
Can’t wait for five o’clock?

What a sad way to live;
Uncommitted to purpose;
Like a boat that’s tied to a dock.

You’ve got to break out
And follow your heart.
And make the most
Of the time that’s here.

You’ve more to give.
You know you do.
The time is now
To address your fear.

This change means leaving comfort.
The steps you’ll take may hurt.
But-give-yourself some credit
Before-you become the dirt.

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.

Ignorance

Ignorance ain’t bliss.
What a horrible cliche;
An excuse for blindness;
Giving into a way,

That’s less than ideal.
You’re acknowledging fault;
Accepting your place,
Like you’re locked in a vault.

Resigned to a framework,
And a limited view.
Content to exist
The way you do.

We all have a ceiling;
Can only know so much.
What’s your reality?
Do you believe you’re in touch?

Comes down to what matters;
To each his own.
What’s your potential?
How much have you grown?

So, what are you holding
That keeps you back?
From stretching your wings?
What-do-you-believe that you lack?

I-suggest-you challenge your thinking;
Live by, I’m better than this.
Establish some targets.
Refuse to miss.
