Poetry Today, Songs Tomorrow

Category Archives: Time

The sun escapes the highlands as the afflicted bow down
in prayer mourning with the sunset to prepare us for tomorrow,
rich devotion enthralls our souls guiding us to pursue greatness
in every way light is received, generating residual smiles and happy visions
persuading us to meet each other’s needs, countless transactions
are made sharing gazes and stares loosing all doubt that gods plans
are bountiful and grand, plethora of detail wrapped for each of us to handle
with care, touching a spirit resumes holiness and nearly unfolds
before thee as we touch a hand or grasp an understanding for more,
a simple desire yearns inside to uncover our years spent on
the sidelines taking in the truth of life waiting for the right time
to stand up and cheer, now is the time, don’t wait til the sunsets,
the light speaks to us all determining our worth, there is no time to waste
let it mold you with divinity and pursue you til infinity marking your pathway
with dazzling torches to the gates that embrace your heart forevermore,
tell someone you love them before it gets dark


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.


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.


Many days I sit

And look at the bevel in the mirror

Thinking that my age

Is to share with the edge

And it’s clear

That my mere character says

Don’t let the mirror

Play into my fear

I wonder what my age

Will look like some day

And let it take away dismay

And bring with it

Comfort of sharing my

Heart with a bevel

Meeting my eye

To deceive the true colors

Of something so untouched as

My pride.


My dimensions of my psychy

Offer a feeling of being

Tied down

With The provisions

And ascensions

Not yet used

How clever Of a way

To say I feel abused

I could be

Monumentally

Recharged if I could

Focus on what

Should open

The doors to my

Insight lures me closer

Investing

In the best of me

guessing me through prosperity

so many answers I’m looking for

when will they meet me at the shore?

I must just wait at that gate

So that I don’t tempt time

But let fate choose me in mine.


Forever

My infinity

Takes heart

That you part

With your failures

And offer your recourse

To be an art

Persuading your duty

To own what you show

On the outside

Will also make

Amends with

The beauty

On the inside.


Stopping time won’t tell you
How you are or how you’re found
It only says what abounds
And the difference between
What meets the concrete
Or the sea
Is only in your moment
To prove your religion
Is the truth you hold to
And what keeps you going.
