Voting 2016

On the contrary, to the politician hater canary

Singing the song of the economy and politics gone wrong

no disrespect to the true conscious intellect

my people we must check…ourselves

put the molded, contaminated loathe on the discard shelf

all this election disdain, is truly insane

meme’s and ads spreading grime

hydrated posts a waste of time

uninformed, incompetent  opinionated  minds

lacking content, no need to vent

or complain about the government’s twisted domain

did you vote in the last campaign?

my  people we are the grain of fiber

our votes activism inspire…require action

needing more than a fraction

involved to change or rearrange

the malicious intention of the warped candidate’s position

with views that are pretty scary!

Voting is a must, it’s very necessary!

Voting is a freedom, a privilege, a right

Vote to honor those who died and had to fight

Vote because the outcome affects us all!

Research, read, listen, pay attention and please heed the call!

Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote!

How’s your view?

 

Recently I had the pleasure of attending an event that my son was participating in. Like many other events I used my cell phone to capture the memories. While taking photos, I realized that some of the people in the group could not be seen in the photos. The group was extremely large, and included more people than the screen settings would allow.

I opened up the settings, examined my cell phone, and toiled with how to include everyone in the photos. As my son was coming over to assist me, a couple people that were also taking pictures of the group suggested that I use the panoramic view setting in my phone. Panoramic view is “an unobstructed and wide view of an extensive area in all directions. “ A panoramic view is further defined as “an extended pictorial representation or a cyclorama of a landscape or other scene, often exhibited a part at a time and made to pass continuously before the spectators.”   Wow! What a revelation! Using panoramic view in your life can allow you to see things beyond the defined landscape. Regardless of the current circumstance, challenge, or situation you may be faced with there is something beyond the view. Through prayer and seeking the Lord, he will reveal the landscape of our lives beyond our limited view. He often presents us with snapshots, images, dreams, and visions of our destiny. Once, we begin to fulfill our divine purpose the snapshots of our destiny will form together to create a panoramic view of our lives. Additionally, we must keep our view clear and without obstructions to see things. We cannot allow people or circumstances to allow our view to become limited and blocked. Finally, once your view/vision is panoramic and clear there will be” a part at a time and made to pass continuously before the spectators.” Wow! Another Revelation! God will allow your haters, those hell raisers, the hypocrites, and those that harshly judged, used and lied on you to be your spectators when he lifts you to your purpose! There is more to come in your life! Change your view!

She died before she lived…

As we embark on a New year and renewal of ourselves, ! I thought this would be great to reblog!

She died before she lived..

Wow So Intense, I ‘m stumped and downright mystified

By how you didn’t live before you died,

but you died to live and generously give

so that you could have life

you gave them your all as employee, sister, friend, and wife.

To live freely with less strife, you left that life…

Wow it’s still a mystery

how you rewrote your history

And had to rearrange the life priority,

not to please the majority but to God be the glory.

So now you can share your write story.

How to live, give, and remain positive…in the midst of the storms and lessons of life

Without an umbrella for protection, the Good book for your direction

And no passport to escape the internal resurrection

That you endured. As the hooks of life lured

you away, for long you didn’t stay..

But returned, refreshed and soul renewed

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!

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!!! …

QuickSand

QuickSand

I’ve tried to reach out, I’ve done all I can
Sincerely extending a helping hand
But wow you’re drowning in quick sand
You’re in too deep more than what I realized
That glamorous cover up was your disguise
It’s one big mess after mess
I don’t deal in drama and can’t do stress
Wow, its real high above your waist
It’s drowning you so fast and I refuse to keep up with the pace
Its drains me of all my energy
I cannot succumb to the negativity
It’s been real, I will hold on to some of the positive memories
Wow, it’s got you moving so fast
I cannot hold on, so on this one I will pass
It leaves me speechless; all I can do is gasp
I’m letting go now, i will intentionally lose my grasp.

I must withdraw and release you
So that I don’t fall in too.
I can barely breathe when I’m with you
I must relinquish my hold, loosen my grip
I cannot stop you now; sometimes you got to fall and trip
Slip and slide, a wild tumultuous ride
I cannot stride
It sucks, pulls you in and drags you down
It weighs too much for me to hang around
I see you drowning going in very deep
That quicksand is very steep
It’s pulling so fast and you don’t even know it
Drowning you daily, you won’t outgrow it
I tussled, tugged I reached and I pulled
I’ve taken several steps back when I saw your evil wolves
Dressed up as sweet little sheep
You really fooled me
But my third eye never sleeps
So right now I’ve decided to let go and press release
It takes too much to hold on so
I must say good bye, adios, peace.

Love is…

I suppose that today is the official love day
Or valentine’s day as it is called.
That we celebrate our love and being in love
And we give and expect to get
Material things that represent love
The cards, candy, plush animals, balloons, jewelry, flowers and so forth
Are all indicators of love or being in love some would proclaim
I guess I’m a little contrary to this dissolution.
That love is validated by “things” we give or receive.
Love for me is more than a teddy bear, flowers, candy or anything material.
Love for me is that willingness to sacrifice one self, compromise, genuine kindness,
tenderness, love is having another’s best interest at heart, being aware of another’s feelings, Love is listening attentively, sharing openly, caring empathetically, truly understanding and having heartfelt compassion for each other. Love is helping someone achieve their goals and dreams and encouraging them when they stumble. Love is in the little details, more than a feeling when you want something from someone or want someone to do something for you. Love is commitment, nurturing, loyalty, honesty, respect and selflessness. Love is something you know and don’t have to Google it, read about; it’s not just a Facebook post, or a tweet. Love is more than a feeling that comes like the wind that blows. Love is 365 days a year and should be celebrated daily.

Our Angel

Our angel is so sweet,so gentle and spreads its wings to fly
Our angel will live forever in our hearts and never die
Our angel is so generous and loves all
Our angel is there to catch us when we fall
Our angel is so precious and so very dear
Our angel was bold and kept God near
Our angel was a mother to many and all
She cared and comforted those big and small
Our angel on this great day she was born
Our angel so beautiful, cuddly, and warm
Our angel took many in and gave them shelter and food
Our angel had her own set of rules.
Oh I can hear that joyous loud laugh and giggle
Never complicated, our angel kept things straight and simple
Our angel shared her wisdom in her own way
She would correct those who tried to roam and go astray
Heaven called back one of its angels because God needed help
So many young children and people he couldn’t do it by himself.
Oh how we miss you my dear Auntie
I know we will see you again in eternity, so save a spot for me.
