Embroidered Feelings and Emotions

My feelings and emotions
Boy, those were the days.
Everything I felt,
felt like “love”.

Boy, did I sprint into action
with those feelings and emotions.
If I felt it,
it must’ve been right.

And boy, I’ve had to dig myself
out of the many holes I dug up
looking for love
in all of the wrong places.

Crutches

I don’t remember
many of the bad times
that defined my existence
so many years ago.
I used to use
my past as a crutch
to feel sorry for myself.
I thought that I needed
the past
to keep my future relevant.

Frauds of the Word

Some followers of the Word,
speak of Your love
as if they truly know You,
a love they don’t truly understand.
A claim in name only.
Their actions betray them.

They call Your love their love
but it’s only reserved
for a few “special” folks
who has tickled their ears
with whatever is hot at the moment.

One blind mice leads another.
These followers are liars
and the truth is not in them.
Your love they cannot show
to the people they see every day.

Good Heart

Constantly putting others
before self.
It just feels right.

Constantly getting burned
from the ones at close range.
Ungrateful to the bone.

Constantly dumping out
the bad experiences so the good
ones does not get ruined.

Stay Bulletproof

Show God’s love to others,
no matter what they say or do.

Respect yourself first and foremost
so that you will always know your worth.

Help anyone you can
and appreciate every single blessing.
Give thanks every single day.

Communication is a good tool to have.
Use it as often as you can.

Kindness isn’t as hard as you think,
just a few positive words
can make a big difference.

Truly listen,
sometimes it’s best to stay quiet.

Increase in knowledge and wisdom,
learning is never outdated.

Follow your instincts,
it is always right.

Forgive yourself and anyone
who has ever done you wrong,
family and friends alike.
Karma is not pleasant.

Don’t forget to pray.
Stay on your knees
through the good times and bad times.
This is your armor.

Above all, put God first.
He will supply all of your needs
and bless you with more than
you could ever imagine.

15 Seconds

A very short scene
unfolded before my eyes.
I laughed out loud
at just the thought of
what I had just seen,
maybe I was going crazy.

There was an audible voice.
It said something
that I’ve only been able
to remember that day
and that day only.

What happened?
I don’t really remember.
I just know
that a few hours later,
it actually happened.
