Practice

Awoke from a space
of gratitude
Enjoy love’s
amplitude
give way
to a new
attitude.

Gratitude
appreciation
of old
and new
Embracing highs
and
lows.
Present
time
slows
down.
Observe
like a child
the key to
knowing more
exploring possibilities
answers from infinity
divinity.
Wonder at the
beauty the world
holds.

Ego suicide
release all the ties
not sadden by goodbyes
Crossing divides
Riding tides
In the lows
and highs
Share the happy
moments.
Life is a prize
treasure it
before it evaporates
you’re only promised
today.
Don’t let it go
to waste
seek to be wise
see past the hypocrisy
and lies.
Happiness is simplicity
Breathe
Live free
Laughing is key
to blissful harmony
empty mind
trash thoughts
that lack inspiration.
Each choice makes your path
unfold
Decide how you want
your story
to be told.

The way

Eyes on the prize

because I stumble

but don’t fall

best believe I

will have it all.

Eyes on the prize

you won’t see my demise

I’m set to

rise

rise

RISE

far beyond the sky

This

is

destiny

Following Maya’s legacy

Phenomenal woman

can’t you see?

don’t give a shit style

Don’t care for your

expectations of me

Learned to let those

go.

I’m living

free

Comfortably

being me.

A message

Fabricated reality

muted dreams

mouth sewed with

black thread

so caught up in routine

you’re dead

Doubt the assassin

Capped potential

in the masses

Talent transcends

social classes.

Take ownership

break the social

script

because life goes by

too quick

just flow with it

Chase your destiny

defeat monotony

fulfill your purpose

be a whole person

awaken

in this life

not the next

breathe

give it your best.

Ink

Poetry brings clarity

in a world filled

with insanity

 

Long time ago

a friendship was born

with a pen

 

whispered words

from worlds not seen

or heard, truth

 

Masked in metaphors

but it shines

bright blue

 

Pen weaved words

bringing comfort

to the soul

 

 

Because it will

get beaten down

and worn

 

Band aids can’t heal

bullet wounds, restoration

found in literary art

 

In solitude, pen proved

to be the greatest

of friends

 

Promised to be

loyal till it’s last

breath

 

Provided a root for

inner strength’s tree

to grow

 

Leaves of creativity

and hope

fountain flows.

A Poem prayer

A harp grows

wings

Kind words to

speak

Faith like

blanket.

Trust in the good

and take a

leap

space

It’s yours

Silent sage

rule the

thoughts

in your

heart.

Peace to

everyone and

everything

let happiness reign

pour blessings of joy

every day.

Patience

It’ll come.

Close your eyes

count to three

Breathe and

let it be.

Heights

City life

Busy streets

people walking that

beat

 

When in the grind,

you’ll find yourself

counting nickels

pennies

dimes

 

Work late, early

rise before the

sun wakes up

to shine

 

Forgot what it’s

like to wine and

dine. shit got real

might even steal

 

lines, public

transportation

hustle and bustle

people

 

Contemplating

 

Never signed

up for it. Struggle

affects the

mind

 

Strait jack

bind, houdini

money, appears

then

 

Remember hungry

or cold, born to survive

roots in the

divine.
