Leave it in the Past

IMG_5296.JPG

Leave it in the past,
Throw it all behind.
Focus on the forward,
Mold your scattered mind.

Try not to worry too much,
Keep it calm and cool.
Focus on the task at hand;
For once, don’t play the fool.

Give it all you got,
Call it quits when you choose.
Don’t come whining to me,
When you feel you always lose.

Try and be the bigger person,
Though you feel it tough.
Try and give forgiveness,
Even when it’s not enough.

You never know who you are,
Until you know where you stand.
Quit acting like a wave,
Tossed and turned o’er the sand.

Keep your guard, stand straight.
Remember to think fast.
Throw away your doubt and fear,
And leave it in the past.

Going with the Flow

Amicalola Falls.jpg

Maybe it’s the rush,

Or possibly the glow;

I can not help but deny,

Going with the flow.

I was made to stand,

Or possibly to show.

I can not be like everyone,

Going with the flow.

I must take a leap out;

Step where I don’t know.

I can not make my choices,

Going with the flow.

Be who you’re supposed to be,

Go where you need to go.

You will never find your purpose,

Going with the flow.

Don’t turn back to the crowd.

Carry good seeds you must sew.

Remember, greatness isn’t achieved

Going with the flow.

The Moment I Get It Together…

Glass2

The moment I get it together,

Is the moment I fall apart.

I think I’ve finally got it;

This so-called matter of the heart.

I act, as if, all is well;

Nothing phases me at all.

My brokenness one can’t tell;

For your name I do not call.

I know one day, very soon,

It’ll all catch up to me.

I’ll break down in a public room,

For the whole wide world to see.

This emotion all held in,

By a very,fragile string.

I knew you’d always win,

As my tears begin to sing.

The song of lost hope,

The look of lost love.

My dreams in a scope,

Fled away like a dove.

The hole that may be,

The wonder that’ll remain.

I can’t help but see,

The rainbows in the rain.

The moment I get it together,

Used to be the moment I fell apart.

I’ve learned to face my weather,

And have been acquainted with my heart.

Living Life with an “Enlarged Heart”

Print

I realize that an enlarged heart is a medical term used to described someone whose heart is pumping too much blood and has a tendency to make it beat too fast. However, on a grand, metaphorical scheme it sounds like a pretty good way to be known.  You ever think about that?  When people think of you, what do they think?  My hope would be that people would look at me and think,  “I wish I had an enlarged heart like her”… By saying that, I mean that I wish people would view me as one who cares for others and leaves open spaces in her heart to care for others.  However, I know that if I do leave those open spaces, I also leave the space to get hurt… which the enlarged heart “effect” would come in handy then (more room to love and heal.) I may be a totally weird and illogical thinker…I just can’t imagine going through life and not making it the best life ever…I love God, I love people and when I breathe my last breath, I will be one satisfied, enlarge-hearted individual.

If Love…

Love

If Love could take your hand,

Would you let it?

If Love could understand,

Would you fret it?

If Love never turned away,

Would you face it?

If Love decided to play,

Would you chase it?

If Love needed a ride,

 Would you take it?

 If Love was honest with you,

 Would you fake it?

If Love decided to hide,

 Would you find it?

 If Love walked by your side,

 Would you mind it?

If Love was sick,

Would you treat it?

If Love was a stranger,

Would you greet it?

If Love was for a season,

Would you risk it?

If Love was but a moment,

Would you miss it?

If Love was a puzzle,

Would you complete it?

If Love hurt you once,

Would you dare to repeat it?
