Response

When you least suspect it…
It can be hectic
Cause you didn’t expect it,
But you gotta accept it,
For what it is.

So, what is it?
What happened?
How are you effected?
Have you elected to react?
Were you attacked?
The way it was has changed?
The future, you were wanting, rearranged?
So, where do you go from here?

Do you know who you are?
Are you identified by things?
Your value changed by what life brings, or doesn’t?

Words of Wisdom

Stand-tall and smile,
With your shoulders back.
You’re right-where you-should-be.
There’s nothing you lack.

You have what you need.
You have more than enough.
Life’s not about fair.
It’s supposed to be tough.

So make the most
Of who you are,
And challenge yourself
To keep raising your bar.

Get with positive thinking;
Belief that you can;
Belief that you’re Great,
And a part of God’s plan.

You are his light,
And made to shine bright
It comes from within,
And it is your right.

Not reserved for a few;
We’re all made this-way.
So, don’t allow others
To ruin your day.

Decide here and now
To move forward as whole,
And to let go of the things
That have taken a toll.

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.

The Point of No Return

What’s the point,
Of No Return?
How’d ya read it?
What’d ya learn?

What do ya hold?
Can’t let go?
Worth the weight
As you grow old?

If now is right
In front of you,
And we have choice
In what we do,

Then choose to move
Into the light.
The point is not
To prove you’re right.

See? Drop the story;
Move along.
Feed the past
Then-makes you wrong.

Non reaction
Is the way.
It’ll help you to
Enjoy the day.

Try it out;
It’s, Don’t Feed In.
Catch yourself
When you begin.

You take the bait
If you should stay.
It’s better to
Just walk away,

Identify distraction and get it out of the Plan.

Feeling frustrated?
Now stop. Soak it in.
Take a deep breath,
And then do it again.

Everything’s fine.
You’re gunna turn off your mind.
Now. There we are.
What did you find?

Not sure? I’ll tell you.
You connected with you.
Present moment;
More of what’s true.

So, give yourself credit.
Things just aren’t that bad.
You had expectations,
And then you got mad.

Whatever it is,
You’re better-off to let-go.
Frustration becomes distraction
Trust me. I know.

Take control of your time,
And do what you can.
Trust in yourself,
And stick to your plan.

RBF

Your resting bitch face
Has moved from dormant to active.
Now it’s scary;
Not-just unattractive.

Red with anger;
Sight set on me.
I wish that you
Could just let me be.

If not, please speak,
In a much calmer voice.
But, it’s not your fault;
You-say you’ve no choice.

Like you’ve the right to behave
The way you do.
Like, you just can’t help it.
As-in… I made you.

That’s a tough way to live;
No control of emotion.
You must feel like a dingy,
And that life is an ocean.
