Looking at the stars
They seem so close by
Yet i see you with my closed eyes
If I could give her shoulders a rest
If I could carry her on my back
I know I can conjure a smile on her face
I know I can make her feel worth in her place
But I want to give more
Give everything back
And double that
How do you repay life?
I do it by living
Making sure to carry forth
every good example
every heart lesson
Every compliment I get I say my mother taught me well
Because you did.
You deserve a compliment as well
To the one that gave birth to my child
I want to thank you
On that day you gave birth twice
Not any single rhyme can express
That special place i have for you
I love you more than myself
Through bad and good
I still think you’re the best
Even though sometimes your patience i test
You’re the mother of my firstborn
Even though we are torn
My allegiance to you
is forever sworn
Why do we have the urge to defend?
Is it the ego?
There must be something that puts us on the fence.
Reason against feeling, which one defines our stance?
Which one provides the answers that helps us pass the test?
Which has the most meaning?
Our thoughts usually run the show seemingly.
But our real drive resides left chest inside.
Treasure can be found on this lone isle.
The heart always knows what it wants day in night out.
The mind chooses, one foot in one out.
So i’m all in.
Choice is noise.
The heart wins.
Word’s can’t sum up but i’ll try
A simple daydream keeps me up at night
About two souls meeting once upon a time
One approached the other and joy filled inside
Together they made the light
Two worlds unified
Time stood still until they both opened their eyes
stretched further than their size
She makes me feel like i’m in highschool
Heart beating fast
my eyes open
but seeing right through
Far away gazing
i almost forget
i need to walk too
The little things got me smiling so big
Meanwhile the deeper meanings have me planning far things
After every interaction i get the courage of a king
But each instance of distance gives me the impatience of a kid
I know it’s true because it shines from within
I see it in her too
and recognize she’s my twin
I took a photo of the buildings reflected but it was too ordinary. Then their light caught my eye, dancing on the moving calm of the water.
i saw life
in those ripples.
It’s all around us constantly. But only through interaction with our world is when we get to experience it.
From the bounce of a ball to the swinging of a leaf in the breeze, there is where we witness life. That steady unforgiving constant of pure energy.
Some call it ether. Others categorize it as physics. I see it as life, in pure form.
From the rhythm of our walk and the echo of our talk, life is and remains.
Live life forever. When we walk with open eyes and hearts, life flows to us. It gives us energy and fills us with amazement for seemingly the simplest things.
Live life. Love life. Life is beautiful.
Beauty is there to be appreciated. For if not, then why be?
Go out there and live. It sounds obvious, but only when we get the full understanding is when we can appreciate it’s true meaning.
Live life forever. GO!
the road familiar
torches fade the way
lighted below lay circular stones
the road majestic
telling promise of bright shadows
gardens still remain unknown
the road fantastic
rumors of scattered gold
fighting dust to find the sun’s glow
the road forgotten
towering oaks ceil the path
muddy tracks of journey’s ago
What if it wasn’t about where you are going
but rather which way you wanted to go?
When we want something we want it now.
It always feels good to acquire what our hearts desire. But the bliss of fulfillment barely overshadows the rush of anticipation. Why is that? Because it’s in this period, between setting a goal and it materializing, where the real magic happens.
We live in a magical world. A simple seed can become the tallest tree. A tingling infatuation can bring forth a whole new human being. A spur of the moment idea can become a mind-blowing invention. They are all made possible by the sleight of hand called time. The master magician!
We often hear that anything really worth having takes some effort put into it. The old “you get out what you put in” phrase comes to mind. The same way that the magician has his tricks to deceive even the quickest of eyes, time works behind the scenes transforming our actions into amazing results.
Be amazed by time! It is our dearest friend. It’s always here, silent but strong, moving everything along the path directed. Be aware of time! Think big! Think long-term but take action now!
Simply said, we must plant our seeds and visualize the forest. Before you know it you will be walking among your dreams. Now that sounds like magic, doesn’t it?
Everyone has their story.
We grow up putting people in categories, mostly based on past experiences. However useful this may be in the selection process of our to-be peers, once we are past that phase we must discard all judgement and start anew with a blank page.
There are no two people alike. Everyone is the product of the most minuscule of details adding up over time. Our mind frames are constantly changing, adapting, to thrive in our environment.
Think about it…
That one time you fell off the bike when you were little; Did anyone see you? Was there someone to help you? Was there someone mocking you? Did you get back on the bike?
You get the point. That single instance could have had multiple results with their particular effect on our psyche. Now imagine every single action you undertake daily and it’s possible results.
No two people are alike. Not even close.
Give everyone’s petals a chance to blossom and you will get to experience true beauty unfold. Start with a blank canvas. And as you learn more and delve deeper the painting will become richer. A true masterpiece in its own right.
