FROM THE MIND OF A WORDSMITH
The Heart Is Thankful

The Heart Is Thankful

So many in need

Clinging to what little they have

Is life unfair?

Are there really short and long straws to choose from?

Maybe life is a humongous haystack with that all elusive needle

The heart is thankful, the heart is grateful

Little bit or a lot, be thankful

Pray for the have-nots and share

Because, as bad as some think they have it

There’s that one person that’s a rung below on life’s ladder

That I

You realize that I

am but human

Not wire and circuitry

You realize that I

do bleed

Not short-circuit

You realize that I

hurt deep inside

And that I

cannot be reprogrammed

To delete pain

from my heart

So I must remain

human

And withstand the

pain

Into The Flame

Threw myself into your fire

On impulse

It happens sometimes

When you don’t feel like chasing

You’d rather sit in a field of dandelions

Secure in the fact that butterflies are flying free

And that you love butterflies

I didn’t blink, I didn’t hesitate

I just threw myself into your fire

On impulse

You have everything I am

The flame burns higher

And the butterflies are still flying free

My Life’s A Mystery

My Life’s A Mystery

I thought I use to know

Know me, that is

Shy boy into shy man

Smiling boy into smiling man

It was around 20 something plus years ago

When I met the only God-Man

Since then, my life has been an unfolding mystery

Petals unfolding slowly

Released from a burden of thinking, this is who I’m supposed to be

My existence, now a tidal wave of hope constantly crashing against a shore of negativity

Taking…

Quietly

Quietly http://wp.me/sWoOA-quietly

Quietly

Going about the business of being

A little sugar in my coffee

Greeting each minute of life

Quietly being me

Life is happening

I’m traveling through

“Hello, how you doing?”

“Have a good day”

Balancing play and work

Doing what I love

Eat and sleep, rise and shine

Society can be loud sometimes

The world can cause such a ruckus

I choose to go about the business of being

Quietly

As long as God…

"Have We Met?"

“Have We Met?”

so close

like we’ve known each other before

are we somewhere in the future looking back?

piecing together memories about how we first met

our clouds collided and emotions thundered

did we brush shoulders crossing paths on a crowded street?

possibly it’s the magnetic pull of our aura, breaking the plain of rational thinking

love is not rational or to be reckoned with

did we catch a glance of each…

Unscripted

Heart to mind

Through the mouth

Heart speak, soul talk

To the light of my heart

Light of my life

My soul swings and sings

You give me puppy dog eyes

And a cat’s happy meow

Walking sunshine, I stand in the light of your love

Thankful, humble

God took a blank page from my life and filled it in with details of you

The exciting part is, He’s not done writing and I’m not quick to turn the page

Instead…

Everyday

Everyday http://wp.me/sWoOA-everyday

Splash some water on my face

Splash the word of God on my spirit

Everyday is a new day

Everyday is your day

Difference maker

Barrier breaker

Share your sunlight

Give up the spotlight

Everyday is a new day

Lend a hand

Take a stand

Help those in need

Let go of self greed

Everyday is your day

Make the most of your new day

A new day quickly becomes an old day

Leading to a lost day

So enjoy today

Your…

Forever In Silver

Together, forever

engraved in silver

a personal testament

engraved in the heart

“where are they now?”, thinking to myself

i imagine much love went into this gesture

commitment, dedication

so much love

“wherever they are, i hope they’re together”

” i hope they went to forever, together”, thinking to myself

i then wiped more dirt off this silver ring

my quest into its history begins
