Life is to short

Life it's self, is to short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people around you who treat you right and forget the people who don't. Be there for others but don't leave your self behind. Life isn't a open book, you just gave to keep going on a Journey, like there's no tomorrow, so keep living life, like theres the last star in the sky shining just for you, so keep living life to the fullest.

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door like an old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

A Woman's Self Worth

A Woman's Self-Worth, is highest among all, for it was a woman, God created, in thy divine holy image.  Friendships, relationships, and holy matrimony, was God's blueprint, for all women.

Eve, the first wife and mother to all, was herself a motherless child, of God!  God could have created children for Adam, but he chose to create a woman, to nurture his children.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta, (a religious leader), the Virgin Mary, (the mother of Jesus), both witnessed miracles, through spiritual divinity; And let us not forget the women of Galilee, who bared witness to the Messiah resurrecting.

First Lady, (Lady Bird Johnson), a great teacher, a humanitarian at heart.  She was known for her gracious personality and hospitality, and she also campaigned against poverty.
  
First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, I have to give mention,  the first presidential spouse to speak at a national convention.  She also advocated for civil rights of the African American people, as well as others.  I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, America's great mothers.

Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Angela Davis, Maya Angelou, and First Lady Michelle Obama, just to name a few, had unbelievable courage, intelligence, beauty, and power too.

Young women be strong, handle your throne,  A woman's self-worth is more than a thong, a short skirt,  twerking in dirt.   Mother Teresa, was a teacher, a missionary, a mother to all!   
                                             Don't lower yourself, stand tall.  
                                               "A Woman's Self-Worth"

My Faith In Him

Even through hardship,
you gave me the membership,
to stand up again;
from those who don't believe,
I can see,
right above me,
you are there to my human eyes only,
I don't believe in you just faithfully,
I believe in you spiritually.
For broken hearts comes to tears,
for desperation comes to fears,
to deal with insanity once again.
No matter what agony,
or I snap mentally,
all the deaths been shown these days,
I will hold my faith of praise,
to all the madness we've caused,
you will show us your miracles,
for you are known as God.

Black Lips

Black lips vibrating for the right mix
Black lips kiss with a passion, Black fist fight for our past and future sons
blood shed, lies spilled
Black lips start to peel
slaving for a meal, time standing still, life flying by
black lips start to cry, no more lies, no more corrupt minds
Cut all ties with evil spines, attempting to take the soul of thine Black lips, with a quick fix
gripping tight on the crucifix
hundreds of years running
hundreds of years of being a fugitive, accused of living Black, black Lips Start To fight Back
Activist, these Lips Never Fall back
These Lips where in Defense and Now It's Time to Attack
never double back to slavery
black lips keep the bravery
Are some going to hell?, maybe, you cannot save all beings
it's human nature, even though God Created everything
Going through the struggle
black lips start to sing
I'm blessed in the name of the King, All Through Summer, Winter, Fall and Spring
I Will Sing
"I'm Blessed"

Glorify

When I close my eyes for one last time
His bright light I will see
His glory will shine upon me
His calming warmth will set me free
His grace and love will rest upon me

With his one touch
I have wings that will envelop me
His voice I hear as a whisper
Calling me home to be with him
I take his hand and glorify him

Glorify his name
No pain
No sadness
No fear
No shame
No darkness

Glorify his name in Jesus We Pray

T Reams for my wonderful Father

This is the Day

This is the day which the lord hath made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
But we rather be sad in it
We rather hate in it
Kill, Steal and Destroy
Boast about our joy
Money, Cars and Cloths
Tell us you got all the hoes
Why do are women want to be hoes
Why we dancing on poles
Men don’t you know women are a key ingredient to our souls
Women don’t you know, your worth more than pure gold
Platinum, Crystals, and Diamonds

This is the day which the lord hath made;
We will rejoice and be glade in it.
That is the only way we are going to save our planet
We have to make our way, because we are here to stay
Hold on to what is right, believing in your rights
Love is the only weapon you need to fight
Because This is the Day where everything change
This is the Day where we are only calling on one name
This is the Day where we all get to see them fancy things
This is the Day where there are no more nightmares and only dreams
This is the Day where you will see greener pastures and blue streams
This is the Day where we all are announced kings and queens
This is the Day Heaven begins to sing

war of good and evil

The road is rough 
Even though I may seem tough
My soul purpose and strength comes from above
He showers me with good grace and love, but is it enough?
Guardian angel on my shoulder telling me to turn right,
But ignorance makes you blind to heavens might, the
gates of hell are now in sight
its time to fight
for the light of the heavens upon us
shines so bright

Never in a million years

Never in a million years would i have thought 
this to be,
my bestfriend, companion, and so special
to me.
if i wouldnt have opened my eyes,
she could have just passed by and walked right 
outta my life.
but in Gods weird since of loving humor way,
today he brought Brittany Back to stay,
a life from my past that i had lost,
never knowing what would be Gods cost.
Now i sit hear always waiting to see,
her simple smile brighten up for me.
The friendship, hugs, smiles and the tug at my heart,
now i know it was just the start.
I may not always be the best,
but yet she still chooses me above all the rest.
all i ask is please let this be I love you Brittany,
and God please bring her home to Me...

Nothing Really Matters

when rob stepped out of the courthouse,with charges for posession
he thought "it could be worse,it could have been for weapons"
and then he thought..."nothing really matters anyway"
when liz stepped of of the rehab,with a new outlook on life
she felt all those same feelings of hurt, pain, and strife
and then she thought "nothing really matters anyway"
when luke picked up his young son from daycare,and knew he had an hour
he thought back to the time he WOULD have stopped to grab his now EX-wife some flowers
and then he thought "nothing really matters anyway"
when lisa lifted up her body with nothing but her arms,and looked down at her legs
she wondered why the heck they were even THERE anyway..what for?
and then she thought "nothing really matters anyway"
all four people that same night,all in their own homes
picked up a remote,turned on the news and watched it come to blows
one man had done 25 years in jail,for something he had not really done
one woman lost the battle to addiction,one she thought she'd already won
one boy got hit by a car on his bike,he just only 5 his parents,divorced
one man lost his arms and legs while over fighting the war
four different people,four different lives,four different struggles,all about to cry
four different souls,four different heart,four different minds,all to have a fresh start
why does it take a reality check to pull us into gear?
why is it that reality sometimes must be our greatest fear?
the next time you think you're the only one who hurts and has plight
the next time you feel you're all alone,the only one who cries at night
try and remember,try not to forget,that you are never alone
whether you're telling your mom and dad your gay to the face or over the phone
whether your wife divorced you,your husband's a dog,or your kids have NO respect
you are human,deserve more,and you're not alone,cause' there is someone right next....
to you!!! nothing really matters. until you realize...nothing really matters.

Jealousy

I contracted a disease called jealousy,
the physician said I got symptoms of neurotic insecurity,
caused by deadly venom in my brain,
poison more deadly than a mad-dog's tooth,
I possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.
 
I find myself in a love competition surgery,
Roadmap to where I feel unloved,
I develop more self-love than love,
full with hateful thoughts to languish and to pine,
I fall deeply into the fear and apprehension of superiority.

I felt like having a kind of civil war in my soul,
driven by low self-esteem;
and extremely difficult emotion to shake off,
	
I quickly slip to jealousy and even hatred,
The surgeon said I poisons my own banquet, and then eats it up.

The damning tho't stuck in my throat and cut me like a knife, 
the amber sweet of love and respect turns into gall
I fall into the injured lover's hell – Jealousy
I took the gun and shoot my selves on the forehead,
End–up in a grave of affection and jaundice of my soul.

The Sacrificial Lamb

His glorious throne He left
for this unruly world of theft
A great sacrifice He offered
for the world He suffered
Into this world He was born
The sewage of sin He had to burn
Gifts they brought
His life Herod sought
The erudites swore
Crown of thorns He wore
Oh!
He died then, though alive
Halleluiah!
He's resurrected, yes He has
The precious lamb of God has
risen to life
Three days in the grave, yet back
to life
The power of death He has
thrown into the eternal sack
The sacrificial lamb

A River of Life

A river of life is what I seek
Because you alone satisfy my thirst
Clean me with the waters of your forgiveness
Douse me in the pool of your wonder
Every morning, your dew sits on my heart
Flow into the seams of my soul
Gush from me, the fountains of your peace
Hold me, as the ocean holds the ship
I need a deluge of your compassion
Just as the trees need the downpour
Kindness trickles from your hands
Lead me beside the still waters of your love
Make me float in a sea of your grace
Never to sink under the weight of the law
Open the dams that hold back your stream of blessings
Pour your gentleness over my head
Quietly fill me with the rain of your mercy
Rush upon me so that I am swept away with your favor
Saturate me with your Holy Spirit
Tears of joy drop from my eyes
Upward I dive, into your care.

Heaven Knows

              “Heaven Knows”
  Heaven hears the joy and knows the sound of pain.
  Heaven gives its recompense and sends it down in rain.
  The sky obeys this notion and holds the clouds in its sphere.
  Swimming in the air, the clouds stir and waver from pier to pier.
  Heaven hears our prayers and keep them in jars as light.
  When gathered up they are placed in the sky and shines as stars at night.
  Knowing this the moon in gratitude obeys and takes a stand
  by giving all its shine to the dark so to share in this glorious band.
  Heaven knows our sorrows and holds them deep in the earth.
  Until soften enough to take place in the earth's yearly rebirth.
  Knowing this Mother Nature burst into attention each spring
  Reminding us of God's promises while housing the birds that sing.
  Heaven knows the kind of suffering that lives in the world.
  Heaven forms a weapon of innocence in every little boy and girl.
  Knowing this the authority of God is placed on us all.
  Giving shelter to the spirit so as not to crack or fall.

Resurrection Changes Things

What once required the sacrifice,
That bloody gift of death and gore,
Of animal life to pay for sin
Is left behind and is no more.
Resurrection changes things. 

Jesus Christ obeyed the Father,
Sacrificed Himself on the cross,
Evened up those holy books
That list our profit and our loss.
Resurrection changes things. 

Where once we followed our understanding
And made our own decisions,
Now belonging to Jesus Christ
Our life is one of holy revisions.
Resurrection changes things. 

When we're united with Jesus Christ
We're a new creature in the Son;
Our old way of life hangs dead on the cross
And life everlasting is now begun!
Resurrection changes things. 

No prison doors can hold our soul.
Christ sets our spirit free
And fills our life with love and hope
That rings our world in victory.
Resurrection changes things. 

So tell someone in the pain of their life
Of the freedom Jesus brings,
That sets us apart from sin and death;
How the soul that's set free sings!
Tell them:  Resurrection changes things.

What Exactly is Christmas

What Exactly is Christmas?
By: Caroline Knudsen

Christmas isn’t just about the presents you receive and the food.
It’s not based on all the cute decorations.
It’s more than that.
Christmas is about the birth of Christ.
The joy and love that spreads throughout the communities everywhere.
The giving; the wishes granted. The happiness people encounter.

Some people may wonder why people are so cordial and magnanimous around this time of year.
I will tell you this.
One person begins to go spreading good cheer.
And the best way to do that is singing loud for all to hear.
And soon those people begin spreading and spreading and spreading.
Once people get in the spirit people give people love, people celebrate. 
So during Christmas time, we go around spreading good cheer, 
so people can begin to give, to love, and to celebrate.

We all know that there are many people who are less fortunate.
People who cannot afford gifts or a tree.
 Not even a home. 
But during Christmas time, people realize it’s time to reach out.
 To grab a hand, to grant a wish.
There are many organizations like Operation Christmas Child, Toys for Tots, Sugarplum Trees.
All of those corporations help do that. 
Help grant a wish. 
So during Christmas time, we decide to give, to care for someone who needs it.

In a little town called Bethlehem, a young Virgin named Mary came to give birth to her child.
 But her child was not just any new creation. 
She was going to give birth to Jesus the Messiah. 
Not one room was empty on that night, but just a small barn. 
And soon that night, she gave birth to our Savior in a manger. Something cattle ate from, our Savior was laid upon. So on Christmas day we celebrate Jesus’s birth.

So I hope by now you have learned that Christmas isn’t just about the presents you receive or the food.
It’s not based on all the cute decorations.
It’s more than that.
Christmas is about the birth of Christ.
The joy and love that spreads throughout the communities everywhere.
The giving, the wishes granted. The happiness people encounter.

A PLACE CALLED THERE

Not too far from here
Lies the dream terrace I hear
The haven of bliss and solace
A glamorous gem of a place
The end of a weary quest
The trophy in fiery contest

Not too far from here
Sits the crown we lived to dare
Purple pride of an intellectual struggle
The green goal of a ceaseless hustle
A place we once asked where
Still seem so far yet so near.

Not too far from here
Stand the Mentors we hold dear
Men who were not shy to believe
Men who fought fear to achieve
The exclusive pass to the hall of fame
for those whose brand is in their name

Your there may differ from mine
I run my route and you run thine
But run we must run and not turn
We sacrifice pleasure and shun fun
Because, not too very far from here
Is a place called there.

Dare to get there.

God So Loved the World

These days will end sooner or later
Whether it shall be today or tomorrow
It may come in a flash
It may be long ways from now
You may start to wonder
Will this ever come?
Oh yes it shall
For god has said
Let there be light
And Jesus will come again
Let the light of the world prevail in everlasting hope
And not to let it stoop in sorrow
The day the world will be at peace
This will be the day for all sins will be vanished
For god so loved the world he gave his only begotten son
For god so loved the world

He is always there

IN THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT 
YOU CAME TO ME AS A SHINING LIGHT
YOU TEACH ME THE WAY 
YOU TAUGHT ME TO PRAY

YOU SAID THAT WE WILL BE IN HEAVEN TOGETHER
YOU SAID THAT YOU WILL LOVE ME ALWAYS AND FOREVER
YOU HELD YOUR HANDS OUT TO ME 
AND SAID THAT I MUST BE WHO I WANT TO BE 

YOU HELD ME TIGHT
AND SAID THAT YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME WITHOUT A FIGHT
YOU LEARNED ME TO DO THE RIGHT
NOT THE WRONG
AND FOR YOU MY LORD I WILL SING ANY SONG

I WILL PRAISE YOUR NAME 
BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS STAY THE SAME 
YOU LOVE US THE WAY WE ARE 
AND YOU ARE NEVER FAR

i dont know about you

this is for all the DECENT ladies out there...
i dont know about you, but im sick of being second choice to skeezy women
i dont know about you, but when i have a boyfriend i just get sick of livin
i dont know about you, but i know about me
and this girl here,shes sick of the pleas
sick of the bullshit, sick of the crap
sick of all the "friends" who talk behind my back
sick of it all, sick of everything
and with this feeling, positive im supposed to bring?
im sick of being told "its my outlook on life"
youre so negative, you make your own strife
i dont know about you, but its not MY atatood
it all the ugliness in this sick twisted world
and i dont know about you, but im fed up
i dont about you but i give up
i dont know about you, but im done feeling the way i do
and i dont know about you, but then again i think i do
you pick yourself apart, about all your flaws
and when they cheat and lie, it just instills that further,its a law
i dont know about you, but i think i do
you're the girl, much like myself
with a good heart and a bad sense of health
build us up, tear us down
i dont know about you, but i really think i am going crazy
i dont know about you, but i think theyre all lazy
too lazy to try, too lazy to care
too lazy to give a shit, but the energy shows up when in satans lair
no more loyalty, to get kicked in the teeth
no more "friends" who just make you weep
no more crap, and no more forgiving
no more forgetting and NO MORE RE LIVING.
im not settling, i have enough of "so-so" to last my whole life
and i dont know about you girls, but it ends tonight.
we stop picking ourselves apart, we stop blaming ourselves
we stop thinking our little "flaws" ar why they did this
when its about someone else
its about them, the people they choose to be around
and quite frankly, before id be around THEM id be buried in the ground.
alive.
yes i hate them that much
and i dont know about you, but i have had enough
i wont blame myself, when skeezy outdoes classy
i wont blame myself for the hilariously tacky
things i see, on a daily basis
and i dont know about you
but i too, can fake it.
see its harder for me,to be mean like you all are
im not built that way, and being mean hurts my heart
so no i cant do the revenge thing
but what i can do is protect myself again
i dont know about you, but its long overdue
i DO know about you...because i AM you.
you are not alone.

Come Rest With Me

God saw you getting weary, 
He did what He thought best. 
He put His arms around you and said, 
come with Me and rest. 
He opened up His Golden Gates, 
on that heart breaking day. 
And with His arms around you, 
you gently slipped away. 
It broke our hearts to lose you, 
you did not go alone. 
A part of us went with you, 
the day God called you home. 
And with this poem I write, 
I bid to you goodbye. 
Rest in peace my loving parents, 
I'll see you on the otherside.

Abandoned

Can you see the sadness behind my eyes?
would you be able to feel my pain?
think how it`s feel like 
to be by yourself and frightened
they left me like I am nothing
no mother, no father, no one to care for me
no one to raise me or teach me how to be human 
with no parents to refrain

The whole world was: too cold, too big and too cruel. 
no house or bed to go back to every night, 
I lie awake every night, alone under the bridge,
hungry like a Wolf.
overcome with panic, pain, and desperation
migraine that made my whole body throbs
developing a contaminated and stigmatized identity
I was a tender ember seeking solace from above...

I remember the pain I felt and wonder why
when my human needs were ignored, rejected and invalidated
living in a nightmare in the darkness of my soul.
tries to cry out for help, but soon learns that no one will listen
carries my denial like precious cargo without a port of destination.
Inside, my soul became so cold I hated everything and everyone
forced to alienate myself from reality and own experience
I wasn’t given permission to be my own person

It’s hard for me to admit that inside I feel a really lonely person. 
It is so degrading and I try to forget, it hurts so much because they are my parents.
I suddenly realized that my lifelong search for love 
and acceptance had finally ended in the arms of a foster parents and Roman Catholic Church.
I am a survivor because every day I make a choice 
not to be governed by their harsh words or actions.
Hiding my pain and acting strong, afraid to cry and show my tears,
I struggle with all this years later.”

The memories flood back, still so many years to go
hopping growing up will bring escape and freedom.

Thanks to my 
foster parents and Roman Catholic Church
I am a creative man who is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.

Man in the Mirror

I looked in the mirror and what did I see
There was a man staring back who was not me
He looked as I did in perfect sync we paired
The same bushy eyebrows, the same short cropped hair
The same goatee with a smirk on his face
But this man was not me who had taken my place
When did this happen just who could I blame
I will find the one responsible for doing this thing
I ran from the room to avoid the glare
Of this stranger in the mirror who only smiled and stared
Then he spoke with a tone that dimmed the lights
And then and there I knew I was fighting for my life
“I am you, don’t fear what you see”
“You and I are one because you created me”
“Over time I have grown into what we have become”
“So now you must live with what you have done”
I yelled for my wife, “Honey, help me, here”
But the home was silent, no one was there
I searched for my kids but their rooms were bare
I checked in each closet, into emptiness I stared
I screamed out for help, anyone, HELP
Then the room grew quiet, there was a calmness I felt
I turned to the mirror and the reflection of me
Was staring away in great disbelief
Someone had entered the room without making a sound
And spoke to me as I stared at the ground
“I am the light you seek, in I you should trust”
“I died for you because I love you so much”
“I’ve been watching you waiting for you to cry”
“For someone to come and save your life”
"Believe for you I died on the cross"
"And only I can restore the man that you lost"
"Allow Me to enter your body and soul"
"And hold Me there always for the world to behold"
"Reach out for Me, I love you my son"
"I'll bear your pain and we will be one"
The weight this pain dropped me to my knees
I reached out my hands crying "Please Jesus Please"
"Save me please from what I have become"
"And forgive me for all I have done"
"I accept you as my Savior and Christ"
"And will cherish you close for the rest of my life"
"I will shout out your name to all that's around"
"So they too can see the Greatness that I have found"
He took my hand in His and I began to stand
And man in the mirror was gone, it was me there again.

Enslaved


Dishearten was I in foreign land
Unjust Kings enslaved me
Until His Unfailing Nail Pierced Hands
From enslavement saved me
Now strongly praised beyond compare
Rock of my Salvation
Build in me a house to dwell
With unyielding dedication
Hear my new song
The Joyful shall sing
 This Ransomed Nation Thankful for His
Sacrifice, Amazing Reconciliation

For the Love of Will

For The Love Of Will

The pain is deeply rooted within.
They see but don't know the thoughts that constantly stir.
Fear, regret and remorse as I drift off to sleep.
Into a land of peace and tranquility.
Acceptance, reassurance and unconditional love awaits me.
Oh how he loves me for whom and what I am.
Can it be true?
Can it be real?
His loving eyes shine down upon me in admiration.
I never want to wake to a life of uncertainty.
Words softly spoken from his lips to my heart.
The promise reveals his sanctuary within the embrace of his arms.
