I Think… 🤔

Everyone at some point or another (if not consistently)
Should know how it feels to hear
Someone say
I Love You.
These 3 words does something to
The recipient,
Especially when
Said with sincerity.
The contributor
Feels a sense of relief.
Although the words be few
They can cause a world of good.
With sincerity
It rolls of the tongue
And shifts atmospheres.
Three words…
I Love You.

Dance

It takes you deep into the rhythm of the atmosphere.
It twirls you around, around and around.
Dance calms the wildest beast.
It creates an atmosphere of desired change.
It can be compared to a dream.
Just listen attentively to the different instruments.
Listen to the words that could be transforming.
Watch how emotions change with such enthusiasm.
Dance takes you places you’ve never been.
Your body envelopes it’s presence.
Dance brings freedom to the dancer.
Every cord flows with unexplained rhythm.
Every move flows with the rhythm.
Dance brings out the best in you.
It dispels anything that carries weight.
Dance as if no one is watching.

Reading

Today I met a little soul
that told me he has no desire…
To open a book.
Not expecting such comment,
I found myself speechless at first
thinking of a response that would
touch his little heart
right then and there.
And my response 7 seconds later was,
A book takes you around the world and back.
His eyes widened and he queried, ‘really? ‘
Why, yes child, the world is within those pages
if you would just open them and
Read, Read and Read some more.
I pray he keeps what I said in his heart
to experience the truth behind it all
In time.

Amazed

I am amazed at how we could all
Look up at the open skies and see
Something different from each other.
In response to, ‘What do you see? ‘
No answer given would be wrong.
Perception is a way of understanding,
Or interpreting something.
It is a mental impression.
With this said, we ought
To see and accept each other
In spite of our differences.
You Say Potato, I Say Patato
You Say Tomato, I say Tamato
Neither way is wrong.
I’m amazed and I welcome
The experience of another’s mind.
I’m amazed how we view
The color purple
And yet refer to it differently.
God is truly a God of diversity.
I am in awe of His magnificence.
Amazed…

God of Diversity

God created the sun, moon, and stars.
He created the universe and all that’s in it.
When He created man, he thought of woman.
Humanity He created in splendid wonder.
He also created the rainbow with its vibrant colors.
When He spoke Words, they became tangible.
When He thought of sounds, He created music.
We would never be able to phantom the Magnificence
of Our Creator.
He is truly a God of Diversity.
How are we able to go on and not see
the true intent of the Almighty.
He is a God of Oneness.
When I think about God’s Divinity and Diversity
I can’t help but look up and recognize…

It’s Raining

Drip drop, drip drop.
It’s raining. It’s pouring.
No complaints here.

Drip drop, drip drop.
Rain you’re welcome any time.
There’s never a dull moment.

Drip drop, drip drop.
Although there may be thunder
Although there may be lightning.
You’re welcome.

Drip drop, drip drop.
So much fun to dance in the rain.
Drenched from head to toe.
It’s okay…

Drip drop, drip drop.
You see, without you,
Everything is at a stand still.

Drip drop, drip drop.
The trees are able to grow.
You quench our thirst.

Drip drop, drip drop.
It’s raining, it’s pouring.
A sign of change.

Dreams

At the wee hours of the night
While in deep slumber,
The mind, heart, and emotion meets.
They meet to construct a…
Dream…
One that would elevate the dreamer.
Their partnership is ideal,
For they know what’s needed.
Dreams…
They know exactly what would cause
all walls of defense to fall.
Most times dreams come to bring answers.
Sometimes they bring hope to defeat despair.
Dreams…
Wake up dormant aspirations.
They know the dreamer better
Than the dreamer knows him or herself.
It’s amazing how one dream could be
All it takes for great determination
To reveal itself.


Dreams…
Come as a tool to help move the unmovable
Or one reluctant to move.
Dreams…
Could come from any filter
So moving with some discretion is imperative.
Praying about it and feeling God’s peace
Is permission to move forward.
Determining its purpose is vital.
Knowing and understanding its impact
Comes with analyzing the whole picture.
Dreams…
Are the blueprint of what
Must be worked on and become a reality.
Dreams are one of many ways God speaks to us.

“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”

With All Sincerity

Repeatedly I’ve dissuaded
You to not move on just yet.
I didn’t sense that unexplainable peace
From deep within.
But just the other day when you said
This was it…
I found no opposition within
To object.
My prayer has always been for you to
Chase your dreams.
The inner peace I needed before, I now feel.
You’ll be missed but not forgotten.
With sincerity, may you find much success.
In all your endeavors.
May you hang where champions triumph.
You’ve been a great friend/sister
And will continue to be.
Because outside these doors our bond remain strong.
With all sincerely, I believe your in the
Right path which is your heart’s desire.
As David was so are you…
You’re a woman after God’s own heart.
And He’s given you His heart’s desire for you.
Soar above all.

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”

― Eckhart Tolle

My 2nd Grade Teacher

She ‘inspired’ me in every sense of the word.
She was a teacher first and foremost.
She was a mother.
She was a shepherd.
She was a doctor.
She was an observer.
She was an activist.
She had a heart to reach any soul.
She was a provider.
She was an Angel.
I was truly fortunate to have such a great start
in life during my first few years in school.
My inspiration, my angel, my God sent.
May God bless her tremendously.
May God bless the seed of her womb.
May her legacy live on always and forever.
She will forever live in my heart
and engraved in my mind.
Thank You for all that you were to me.
