the crutch

Sunday, April 30, 2017

maybe you shouldn't do
what you enjoy
maybe it's all wrong
to be
ive seen the results
they aren't what you would expect
you went far

but not as far as you could have gone
it's a crutch
it doesn't shape you
grow you
it holds you back

and you don't mind
because it's okay
you're warm
you're happy
but really?

have you ever been
washing the bathroom mirror
and you're thinking
thinking about random things
then you stop
and look at yourself
and it's like
you can see yourself clearly
for once
it's a moment
short and vanishing
but then your heart aches
bc that feeling awoke something
deep within
it unlocked a longing
and then
you finish washing that mirror
bc life still has to be lived

basically me

a family's treasure
is always stored
in the safest of places
four walls make a house
but a family to love it
make it a home

there can't be a beginning
without an end
so yes

maybe someone from the puzzle
of the large and beautiful family
has left that empty spot
to never to be perfectly filled again

there will be memories
stored tightly
bc maybe those four walls know the story
but its the people
who carry it forever

for daminika and marissa and lakaysha
and their entire family

darling you're loved

did anyone ever tell you
that your eyes
are shaped out of the moon
did anyone ever tell you
that your soul
was carved out of laughter
did they ever explain
that your kind of beauty
is too overwhelming for the world to bear

maybe nobody else did
and i'm meant to be
that somebody
who does

so listen to these words
soak them in
cuz darling 
you're loved 

<3 <3 <3 <3

stop running

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

there are some people
who have run so far
and so deep
away from God
that they literally are so lost
they cannot move
and there are some people
who walk so close
and know Him so well
that evil runs away in fear

tell me please
which are you
or better yet
which would you rather be

we are the dreamers

Monday, April 17, 2017

we all have a fairytale
hidden away in our hearts
these fairytales
are filled with ideals and dreams
hopes and things your grasp for
they're those cinderella balls
and winning money for books
finding a flight ticket to the place you dream to be
they are your wedding day
and moment you see your child take its first steps
when you do firsts
and then even your lasts
some people call them unattainable
and honestly
if you believe in true love
and four leaf clovers
and a God who knows your heart
then keep dreaming those fairytales
you've got them for a reason

being a dreamer 
doesn't make your head in the clouds
it just means
you hold onto hope
don't let go
for there will be some
who are dream-takers

my king

there is a Lord 
who came as a servant 
to save us from our stupidity 
and the sins which we created 
He came for the poor and the rich
for the sick and the mighty 
He came for the old and the young 
and shook the world 
with silence at times and parables at others 
we did not know 
or else we did not want to know 

because submitting to Someone 
means giving up yourself 
and you see 
that's the whole point 
cuz that's what Jesus did 
up on that cross 
don't forget the pain He endured
so that God will now look at us and see His Son 
we are trash 
He is glory 
we are dirt to be tossed to the wind
He is Lord to be worshiped for eternity
I will scream this until I die 
bc what if we forget 
simply remember this 

He died for our sins but lives now

and that my dears 
is breathtaking 

never fear

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

reality is harsh
and unforgiving
but perhaps
that's the way its meant to be
sometimes it seems
as if there is no future
as if the end has come
but never fear
look up and around
the world hasn't stopped yet
Someone is keeping the motion
in motion
so hush
don't cry
just remember
you're not the first to go through pain
and sadly
won't be the last

rely only one one Being
you'll never be disappointed 

how pain is handled

Saturday, April 8, 2017

some people hurt
by showing their pain
others cry
to ease the sorrow
some bottle and store
the agony so deep
and some
say to God
take it away

in my head this rhymes but maybe it doesn't idk

it amazes me
to know
that the world is round
a circle
filled with millions
and millions of people
all these people want travel
to know what is beyond
but yet
all these people
all have neighbors
who they do not know
they all have places
which they have never explored
only 5 minutes away
it amazes me
that people still think
that the grass is greener
on the other side

just remember
everything is relative
even the color green
