Here I am in my entirety
The story that burns inside of me
Flaws revealed
Every layer of the onion pealed

I have told you of my past
Feelings I have had
My hopes and ambitions
My life’s mission

Read these words, they pour from my soul
These words are my warmth in the cold
This isn’t just poetry
This is the beginning to knowing me

A man who lust for knowledge
Desire’s a certain intellectual prowess
I want to speak and move people
Make the walls of the hardest souls seem feeble

I can not leave this earth
Without delivering my true worth
So please, I beg you to read
These words are what my heart bleeds


Fifty Two

Fifty Two

A single tear slowly makes it’s way down my face
I secretly accept it’s warm embrace
It’s journey reminds me that trouble won’t last always
See, that lone tear is the last of many I have cried
The others have come, fallen, and dried
A walk to the mirror lets me know I’m still here, still alive
Grateful I stand
For trouble and pain has taken many a good man
I look again at my hand
Prepared to play what I have been dealt
I know the greatest opponent I will ever face is self
A whisper to God “I may need a little help”

Happiness Is a Choice!

Today isn’t a day I usually post something but I read an email from a friend that inspired me! So I thought that I would share the fruit of my inspiration with the world, or at least the part that visits my website lol.

Being happy is something you choose to be. It is not the things we have or the situations we are put in that make us happy. Happiness is decided by how we view the things we have and the situations we go through. If we choose to be happy and view life in a positive manner then we can’t help but to be happy. Wake up with the mind set that you are going to have a great day and let nothing change that. You have a choice when things dont go your way you can either focus on the negative and be sad, disappointed, even angry, or focus on the positive and enjoy every moment.

Make the most of every moment. Create memories that you will enjoy forever. When you need a reason to smile look back to the beautiful memories you have created. Be thankful and appreciative for all that you have. It is about what you give not what you get. Appreciate all that you have been through in your life. Learn from the mistakes and repeat the success.

Smile… you will live longer!

The Meaning of the Words

Grammatical Inspiration


I speak, I write, for my and your inspiration

Give not our mind any limitation


Is the message I am preaching

Believe in what you are reaching for

Look NOT at one man’s ceiling, it may be YOUR FLOOR

I beg you to stop and think on what you just read or heard

Because if not then it is just words

Although these words, vividly spoke

Are often just filled with the hope

That someone anyone would listen or read

So they may see that this isn’t just my attempt at beautiful speech

Or just a  talented use of noun, adjectives, and verbs

Yes, it is amazing what one could do with words

But it’s never my intention to be a great writer or speaker

But through my words and actions a great leader
