Poetry Today, Songs Tomorrow

Monthly Archives: August 2013

So many constraints and so many days

 I lay wondering where I will be

In a year from now

I tell myself to rest in desire

Of the future but as it turns out

I would rather forgive my future

Than knowing what it holds

To the truth of me

And in me stews possibilities

Broadcasting and internationally

Recharging my abilities

So that some day I can say

That my trust comes in the present and stays

With the day that wakes me.

Today is my memoir

And yesterday might have been misery

But tomorrow is pure registry

Of my satisfaction.

I make my world

And Im calling tomorrow

To be selfless and forgiving of me

So that I can hold strong to

Delivering who I want to be

From this day forward

Holding my marbles

In my pocket that came from Jesus.


Determination

So long ago I was beside myself

Living in inequities and transgressions

Possibly holding them to my side for too long

Now, I’ve come to manage my fear

Is not in the dear restraints that keep me

On my toes searching for more

Now I tear through my bandages

Hoping to break free of what once was damaging

Is now testimony of my safety

My nature Is terribly uncertain

But today I raise the curtain

And call it my testimony is shown

Such as a retardation is prone

To dissolving through the richness

That becomes my suit of armor

I’m one with my natural self

No longer holding to inhibitions

But farther proving to myself

That my keep is tender

And so is my meekness

So I surrender in passion to my faith

Because it is my only salvation.


My soul rings a treble in the water

Its youth is flattered

By the glorious waves of continuity

This everlasting fountain

Is to blame for my loss of  shame

I’m one with myself

And I reign forever as the water

So aqua and truly the queen of me

Is the perfection I wish to be.


My passions take me past my critical affairs

And lurks beneath my skin a pair of hands

Keeping my heart beating

This pressure that I bear is also in you

We receive and view passion differently

But we are all the same

Made of blood and bone

And my tone might come off

A little honed in on you to step up

And match me at my eyes

You cant stay down on your knees all day long

Anymore

It’s time for you to start redirecting and reaching

And perfecting this art of your life

You manage to have a testimony

Can you also be damaged by a lonely?

Recover and feel projected of strength

Erect yourself and stand like you mean it

Today and say it is in your blood that you can meet with

Adversity in the eye and say

Watch this!

Because I have Christ.


Targeted

My position plays me into

A description only few

Can mark of

Tender memories

Pleasant anomalies

Programmed

For a consumption of life

We are handed a target

And it’s our job to find it

In action

So is it up to me to hit it

Or do I commit to just viewing

What meets my eye

In a simple try

To hold onto my ego

Is it most reigning in my past

Or is it always set in the future

How true it would seem to me

To be always challenged

Seeing where I might be

Shall I let go of what holds me back

Or is it leading me into a place

That I once met with the dice?


You take me out of the depths of despair

 to stir in me

what clearly reassures my abilities

as splendid

I’m writing day and night

For what seems to be right

Hoping to monument my sight

Of what was once a fright

With all my might

Can I take me to new heights?

All of me being in a flight

Of what was once that created my plights

Also created my abilities to forgo my next insight

Offer me a tight

Hope and let it soar in quite

A satisfaction that makes me tell satan to bite

Me in this new light


Resilience

In hopelessness Is the power to reform

My thoughts

Creating what I want to think

Is the best way to live

Determining what possesses me

Cures me of my fashionable

Invisibility

I love so I stay strong

With God

He pushes me to the edge

With infallible questions

And persists I dig deeper

To institute more inspiration for the future

He says, “today is over, so prepare for tomorrow.”

And in this I find peace

That meets me with passion

To exist

This is who I want to be

I am this

But I cant see today

Maybe tomorrow I will discover what I am


You take me out of the depths of despair

 to stir in me

what clearly reassures my abilities

as splendid

I’m writing day and night

For what seems to be right

Hoping to monument my sight

Of what was once a fright

With all my might

Can I take me to new heights?

All of me being in a flight

Of what was once that created my plights

Also created my abilities to forgo my next insight

Offer me a tight

Hope and let it soar in quite

A satisfaction that makes me tell satan to bite

Me in this new light


Life’s shoes

I’m merely a person seeking redemption

I want to fulfill my connection

To the world

So help me God as I find new shoes

My last ones were severely tampered with

My attitude was running wild

Clearly I was deceived by their platform

Hoping to numb their feats with the ground

Never really feeling what was bound

To get in their souls

My new ones will offer me freedom

With toes that are open facing the sun

I hope to model someone today

Someone that was once young

At heart

Help me gladden my miseries

And pour me into the richness of my destiny

And forever let your will be done

Don’t let me apologize anymore

For wearing holes through my shoes

Pardon my sores

And let them remind me

Of what was once binding me

As I lose my memories

Of my past and can only see it as

A fraction of my life.

MY life is in my satisfaction

As I wear what makes me happy

Today and tomorrow.


Deploy me into an action

So lonely that I must muse myself

Into an accord

Where I find

Restitution in my own

Laughter

Mark me with a kiss

That lifts my voice

And let it act

As a tone

That helps to mold me

Prosper me

Into the man

I see so far away

Bring closer

My fears

 So that I may mount

Them as I battle

For my own monument

And let me shatter

What seems hopeless

Of living in solitude

Bringing joy

To the one

That created my discharge

In field

Peel away my armor

And reduce me

To ensure

My mastery

Is endured

The right way.
