Still Learning

I am still learning how to
Love unconditionally,
Laugh uncontrollably,
Sing at the top of my lungs,
Dance like I know what I’m doing,
Pray from my heart,
Write without boundaries

I am still learning how to be
a good listener,
more understanding,
a cheerful giver,
a better human being

A Dreamer, Still

Some dreams become nightmares
but is it reason enough to give up hope?
the pinnacle of our survival,

Hope is
a pillow to prop our heads up
like a life jacket to keep us afloat

Hope is
a nudge to push us further
into the doors of our dreams
when we’ve hit a stumbling block or two or ten

Hope is
the magic wand that heightens up our moods
and reminds us of where we’re going

We can’t let our fears stump our growth.
We can’t let others trample on our goals.
We can’t let failure ruin our potentials

Push, push, push forward
don’t give up
search for the light
reach for the stars
push the clouds out-of-the-way
