His Promise


His Promise

Head bowed, body bent

Every bit of fight in me spent

Dreams tormenting my soul

Tears begin to roll

As I whisper … God… my lips start to quiver

Do you remember

You promised no more than I could bear

No more than I could bear

Here I am appearing ungrateful

So many say this is what they wait for

For me, this life is not enough

More is a must

I can’t stand the ordinary of just being

God you must have created me for more than I am seeing.

You promised no more than I could bear

No more than I could bear

So, Father please speak to me

Are my dreams not meant to be

Or is it that I am not ready

I keep saying be patient and hold steady

I worry how patient I should be

Maybe you’ve forgotten your promise to me

No more than I could bear

I hope you are listening to my prayer

And remember your promise of no more than I can bear

Because right now I feel I am almost there

That moment before I break and out of air

Me


ME

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
