Poetry Today, Songs Tomorrow

Category Archives: encouragement

You’re binding me to

See the real me

Is who I mean to be

Always loving and committed

To my song

Am I wrong to please myself

With a tune so new

That it’s label is but a fable

In the future

I can see who

I’m meant to be

And I think I’m bound

To you and you and you

This is my life

Always stating  the truth

Of what my life brings

So much sentiment today

As I lay my shadow at the door

Never forgetting who made me

But enduring the lost

As but a pause of me

Holding to the future is plain you

Try to say

But I see this riddle finding me

In a place that hides me as the flesh

To my bones

You may think you see the real me

But it is yet to be discovered

As I show you

My laugh

The depth of it stays with me

Keeping me in solitude

Offering the magnitude

Of what is becoming

Keeps me going hoping

to keep my secret

of who I’m trying to hide.


So much pleasure

In what you offer me

I see in one view

That you too

Love so much

Your wonder

Leaves me questioning

My perception

What is real seems so blissful

Today may I

Call you insane

Because then we would be the same

Let me mark you

With the sound of my harp

And I will show you

Truly what I know

You talk to me and say

It is in me

And I lay to reason

With the best place

Is in my imagination

Living in today

And bringing in tomorrow

This is me

And you afford me

To use

Another tune

So perfect only the heavens

Hear it’s truth.

I’m blind for you

Bring to me your nature

So that I may be in your rapture

And remind me to keep being me.


Wonderful

The magic is in

The kin of delivery

Washing away the sin

What was once knit

So tight

Is now loose to flight

In the breeze

So often

Please remember

There’s never too much

When a bunch of flowers

Offer their heads to a bed

Laying at ease

Is it’s tease of approval

With it’s power

It’s touch

Is such that brings

Emphatically

The taste of sweet

So much static

Charging itself

Full of energy

Never leaving

But breathing into

 a ceremony

Of it’s stature

So in harmony

Is the wonderful

In me.


treasured

So bland is the sand between my feet

Always meeting me at ease

Watching the sun

And broadcasting a future

So in line with my vision

Of sublime difference

Allow me to rest

In this beauty

This is the best of my life

Today irrefutably

Living in this chest

Allows me to overcome my past

So let me be

Seeing the new me.


Time

In a minute your life can change

What would you like it to say about you

Have you gained the respect you are due

And have you accomplished your dreams

So many streams of light flow through

what meets with the eye of the matter

 so many times you’ve suffered

And it’s true you’ve earned your keep

So stop weeping about your past

It does not define you

Let your life shine it’s beauty into the depths

Of high waters and let this ocean

Be true to who you are

And in it rests the wonder of your heart

Keep going and never give into your failure

Let it be fuel to your fire

And regard it as small compared to what marks

Your path.

Surely you have enough confidence to claim your ways today

As remarkable.


I’m free to be me

I am winded with Glory

I am sanctified in my bridge

Of the course taken so mere

Discloses to me my ideal

Of beauty reigning in positivity

Never abusing

Only dating me with kisses

She flirts with my words

She instills confidence

She thrills my chills

To let lose

And let the force takeover of dignity


So many nights I lay awake

Thinking of how to date

Myself

Is it by my age or is it bigger

Than something meant to take

My years away.

Might I admit that I

Like feeling older

It helps me see more

And understand my hope

Is impressed with tales

So many of them take me

Beyond an expression

The love, the hate,

The worship, the memories

Take me to my limits

And suggest I continue

To express my fortitude

Is in how I deliver myself today

Not yesterday,

What possesses me is my very own

Succession of leadership

Skills I have honed in on my entire life

This is the courage it takes to resume myself

Not as imperfect but as remarkably

Perfect.

Today I am courageous admitting

My failures and my past do not mark me today

And may I absorb in this passion of life

What does not conform me

But inform me for my future tests.

I rest in this.


It takes notes to a new place

It harmonizes and makes no waste

Time is in tables

And always in fables in much

To a disguise

Seems wise

Plenty is left at the end

And quantity creates what is to open

The new day

Today I am ready

To fall to my knees and play

With what exceeds of me

Always excelling and impels me

To continue

This Is my mark

And as I continue to play the harp

Let me be bountiful

So that I may regard my pleasure

As the present of fulfillment.


My posture exudes courage

And my passion excludes desires

That keep me tied up

So open I feel today

Ready and never tired

I can make this the best time

Of my life if I can commit

Like I did yesterday

Today I will be ever so diligent

Resisting all temptations to lose hope

And looking yonder begetting

What comes from me

And offering the sun

It’s rays back

Into the sky that marks my path

In the clouds that form to my wrath

Here me roar as I leave

My mark and wash my face

Of your ways

You will not hold me back

I refuse to check my vision

I’m clearly in the scope of perfection with strength

So my mold is truly a correction

Of you and your ways

I will keep to my heart and press on with hope

And this is my art of creation

My life to you

How you view me is also up to you

But I will live in endurance


Bravo

You’ve won

So many have but one

Desire

It’s to succeed

So many are clueless

What it means

I’m telling you now

It seems to me

That beauty is not

Only in the eye

Of the beholder

It also lies in the

Hearts content

Truly streaming through

Emotions

And the succession

Of pride along with will

Takes us to the next tide

In the ocean

Learning of what makes us a winner

Surely you can see

Is all up to beings

Of aptitude

Testing one’s will

Along with reaching

Beyond what we see

Allows us the dignity to face

Our actions

And withstand pain

To the end.

Until won in body and soul.

Are you a winner?
