About Da Write Chick

I write to encourage, entertain, empower, evoke thought :)

Don’t Trip

Help me Lord to hold my lip,

Let the gossip slip off my hip,

From the jealousy I shall not trip

But instead flip the script,

Being friendly to the enemy envy

Remove the negativity, lies, biased chatter from around me.

In the midst of this lions den,

Free me from this worldly sin

Strengthen me to never give in

Yet turn my cheek to the whisperin’

Please protect me from the evil grin

External smile of a “so called friend”

Let the negativity make me laugh

And provoke me not to wrath

Vengeance Lord I shall not seek.

Humble me father, make me meek

Thank you Lord for the critics I face.

You are my light, my savior, my saving grace!

Unity Launch!

The rising son warms and covers the universe…
While Serenity orbits Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Uranus
As tranquility dances with the stars
Shooting rockets of Love, Unity, and Harmony to the moon
sprinkling it’s calm propellants to rain, showering Peace on Earth… Peace on Earth… Peace on Earth!

Shadowless Reflection..

Shadowless Reflection

The rumbling blue sea, a massive being
Raging waves absorbing the sunlight,
Swallowing all of its own shiny reflection
Never casting a shadow!

What’s in your dash!!!

What’s in your dash? What will your dash say about you? Does your dash have meaning? At some point in our lives we or someone we know will experience some type of loss. A Loss can be from a relationship, health, freedom, home, identity, job, and so forth. Losses can catch us off guard, unprepared, and change our lives forever. A loss can leave us broken, confused, distraught and angry. Perhaps the most beneficial outcome of a loss would be to use it as a tool for self-reflection, motivation, and inspiration.

I have endured a few losses in my life. Recently, I had the unfortunate task of dealing with loss; the death of one of my cousins. Like so many people, when I received the news of his untimely death I was shocked, saddened, and overwhelmed. For several days, I rode this emotional roller coaster and was even more pensive on the morning of his funeral so much that I dreaded preparing and getting dressed for it. I hoped and wished this day never came and would be over soon. While riding in the car, I remembered our last conversation and began to ponder about it. Unknowingly, I smiled when I reminisced about his humorous spirit, warm smile, and zest for life. A sense of peace, pride and joy came over me when I saw the vast number of people that came out to pay their respects on such a beautiful sunny summer day. During his funeral service, I was overwhelmed and comforted by every speaker that reflected on my cousin’s genuine kindness, helpfulness, and acts of service. It was during these reflections and speeches, that I was reminded of how great my cousin’s dash was and what a profound legacy he left.

Since his passing and funeral, I have been more reflective on my own life. With every action, task, act of service, interaction with others, etc. we are building our dash. Our dash holds memories of our actions, our being and how we lived our lives. Our dash will be the mirror that’s reflected upon to comfort, encourage, inspire and keep our memories alive. It goes without saying that I will greatly miss my cousin, aunt, grandfather and other relatives and friends that have passed away. However, I am consoled and can find peace with the great memories of their lives. In the midst of pain and sadness, I am inspired, encouraged and comforted by their dash! Therefore, daily I choose to cultivate, nourish, strengthen, live, expand, develop, extend and make my dash (life) count!

Burning Bridges !

Burning Bridges

 

Fiery paths set ablaze

Tension filled embers engulfed brightly glazed

Unforgiveness, anger, jealousy and rage,

Pride and egos take center stage

Scandalous behavior sizzles while it’s covered and hot!

Planning and prepping one mischievous plot

Backstabbing, back tracking, fence straddling not to get caught

Exposed it reveals scorched and blistered dry rot

Withered and destroyed, hearts and minds are distraught

Tempers flared, word war declared foul language slingshots

Slung and thrown, the bridge is now burned a real life lesson taught.

Pay Attention and learn which bridges to keep, which to burn….

divine revelation will help you discern!

My Canvas

My Canvas

My very own canvas, a blank slate
A precious gift from the most high God to create
shape, mold, love, paint, and cultivate.
Designed by matrimonial affection,
He came wrapped in perfection.
Silky, smooth flawless complexion
Shielding him from harm, being his protection
From negative elements prayerfully interjecting,
Declaring calm to life’s storms
Guiding the winds to blow sweetly in his direction
Softly, gently sowing, pouring golden seeds of reflection
hope, courage, love, patience, kindness and peace into my masterpiece,
calming any blues, stroking him with joy filled hues
of neon nights watching the iridescent moonlight to wishing upon shiny stars while I tuck him in at night. Yellow sunshine filled days, watching him grow up and play. Blissfully drawing adventures to be remembered, countless pictures of see sawing, roller skating, bike riding, kite flying, birthdays, field trips so many trips, falls, scraps and slips and endeavors, creating cherished memories to last forever. My masterpiece still growing, learning and yearning to be older than he really is…

My loving son, my canvas still being creating, becoming more acquainted with life, so vivid, colorful, unique, my canvas will be a Great Man once he’s complete!

I’m Covered!

The wolf pack trying to eat me alive
I’m a kingdom kid born to thrive
The Lord will destroy any evil plan you contrive
He’ll reverse that destructive bus you drive
Trying to set me up and throw me under
I am not trying to steal your perceived thunder,
I see my future, this ain’t my life dream
I aspire to achieve greater things
You can have this playing corporate schemes.
The crab in the barrel is your home team
I refuse to stoop to your level and give in.
The Lord is my Shepard and this fight I’ll win!

Unclaimed Baggage!!!

I’m unloading

To prevent exploding

Overloading on the guilt, hurt, shame

Heartache, fear, disappointment, stress, and pain

Baggage I refuse to claim,

The carry on, satchel, knapsack, pouch, attache’, loaded brief case to much to maintain!

Those things don’t contain my name

Property tag unfound

The heaviness weighs you down

Makes you drown, pound after pound

Due to turbulence of life above ground

I’m no longer bound

Calm and Ease surrounds

as the internal cabin pressure decreased

I exhaled and released

Sought and received inner peace

Harmony, joy, love, patience, and compassion increased

Those negative totes I left behind

Didn’t even bother to go to that line

Those saddle bages were never really mine

I was misdirected and followed the wrong signs

became misaligned

So i had to stop and rewind

Seize and eliminate the internal plight

Board a new uplfiting mentally serene flight

So airy, pristine and light

Spirit Reviving, soul energizing, soaring to new heights

Celestial landing right on time

My thoughts, mind, and emotions realigned

Well-being altitude undefined

Refreshed and Renewed, thriving feeling so divine

Basking in his glory!! Alive and doing just fine!!! …
