Just Keepin’ It Real

Don’t break my spirit
just because you feel broken.
Don’t bend me carelessly
just because you’ve been bent and tossed aside.
And that’s not to be mean or rude.
Just keepin’ it real as always.

I tell you what,
I’ll…be the bigger person.
I’ll…walk away from the drama unfolding.
I’m gonna give you an honest minute to fix yourself,
maybe in a month or two we can talk again.
I ain’t about that negative life.

Cold Dream

In my perfect world,
a fairytale ending sounds just about right.
In my perfect dream,
I wanted you to be my prince charming.

When I float off to wonderland,
I get so, so, so excited.
Being longing with lust all day to make
you my main theme park attraction

but in my beautiful, amazing dream,
you stand cold and disconnected,
playing a mean, painful game of
hide & seek behind the shadows.

Even with my best focus lens on,
I can’t bring you back into my perspective.
There’s no placing you where you don’t belong.

Everyone Has Their Day

everyone has their time
of the year, month, week or day
when their self confidence suffers

they struggle
with acceptance
of self,
they become
their biggest enemies

in limbo,
they can only watch
helplessly as their self-image falls apart,
they need reassurance
from everyone they know
but it usually isn’t
enough to tape
back up their appearance.

Be Happy

Wake up with a smile on your face.
It’s good to be alive.

Build on your happiness throughout the day.
Laugh just because.
No explanation needed for your outburst.

Fall asleep with a smile on your face.
Don’t let your circumstances define you.
Maintaining your happiness is worth more than
the sum of all your mistakes and choices.


Oh my! You’ve got that
cursive handwriting down pack,
I’m practically drooling.
It’s not what you say but how
you write that has my heart racing.
Dang, I wish I could
handle a pen (or pencil) like that.

This is it

This is it.
The final lap of the race.
This race must be won.

Every inch will be an hurdle.
And every hurdle will be the test of my life.
But that’s just the way success is designed.

This is it.
It’s crunch time;
It’s do or die time.
