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

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!

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!!! …

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.

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.
