Happy… Forever…


When I first sat down to write this I thought “Oh this is going to be easy!” All I have to do is tell my thoughts to the world and wish them a happy life.

Then it hit me “When you say it like that..” It seems easy enough, but to actually pick and assemble the best set of words and thoughts to say all of that in like 3 minutes. That’s when it gets a little bit harder. How could I… I mean really grasp what I wanted to say.

Praise, Acknowledgement, Family, Commitment and Love in a couple of paragraphs. How could I assure everyone who reads this; to let them know that through the trials, hard times and just life in general; that marriage is a good decision for both parties, that this is how it is meant to be. That “Love can conquer all”  it just needs respect & reverence to keep it in line. To be able to tell newlyweds that this is a symbol, a contract, unyielding and completely binding. A true test of forever.

Some people could never share and discuss their lives with friends like they can family. Now when I say family, I mean there’s no way you can deny this person of being who they are to you. When you say loyal, supportive, stubborn, a down right pain in the ….,  someone to never skimp words and always tell you when your wrong or right, stand by you in a fight. To always be there even if you can’t see them, just like the stars at night. You can always depend on them to be who he or she is and to follow through.

I know sometimes; more importantly in today’s world, that this can turn into a fling or some disillusionment.

Teams that take these steps are centuries of mankind trying to come together for a definitive purpose. To finally see them coming together to make a statement in front of their family and friends. Where they make history with a rite of passage and celebration. To hold each other so dear and close. This was always down the road, and everyone here knows that this is not the easy way out. So as these and many more of the memories to come and linger on for years I wish the world a strong and healthy life.

Marriage is dedication, the battling of life together. It is poetry. It is love songs. The union can be dreams. Reality and fantasy… Bonded, together… In my opinion…

Happy… Forever…

As Always…

Stay Positive!

Everywhere I Go…


Everywhere I go
No matter where I go
I know I take you with me…

wherever I go
no matter where I go
I know your here with me…

I live our memories
I carry you in my heart
wherever I go…

your always with me
everywhere I go
wherever I go…

unbeknownst the layers are thick
bloodline carry unique demographic

roads traveled; long
I don`t understand the words
automatic somethings we build on

heart in tune
the rhythm to my spine
I understand… undeniable time

working all day
with stress piling on
caffeinated drink in my hand
that’s not going cut it for too long
got you on my back telling me I’m wrong
feel like a slave
and I need me a song
cuz im here holding on
and with that said “I’m goin carry on”

you left me in the flames of the day light
knowing you weren’t going to extinguish me by night
seeking for at least one way to get right
but I`m alright

and I see and I know
i`m at peace with no fear
i`m ready to go
the devil is calling
my clock ticks slow
clouds ride and sit low…

everywhere i go…

“Encourage”


Attempt your goals like birds at flight
with the absence of light
tunnels can come to scatter…

Everything becomes black
becomes one
no walls , no fraction
use knowledge as a candle.

Become the wick that burns through
thinking the thoughts  that bring light to you
someone is  always saying something
establish strength, flaws and foes
be the rising sun
make the cock-crow.

Cultivate
for what you reap you sow
all things need time to grow
differentiate
so you can spot a change in flow
re-iterate
do all the good things once more
repeat positive outcomes like before…

“Is It Destined For…”


 
arguing
 
 
just as distant…
 
as old textbooks and encyclopedias on the shelves
asking… what else?
 
just to describe myself
finding out inside
is somewhere else…
 
it’s not the same on the outside…
 
here with me
I tell myself things
I truly don’t want to hear
don’t want to believe
after broken hearts
anger sparks
hot heads in cold beds
staring at the ceiling
trying to compromise
use these dealings
expressing flaws
drop jaws
wild-eyed and in awe
can this become what it was before?…
 
is it destined for
an edge; a cliff;
or  fall…

This site really is personal; for me anyway. I am no relationship guru. I experience things and then write about it. This is a reflection of one of those down points in a relationship when you question if it is really worth all the headache that it truly causes.

“Making Whole”


I’ve found a place
a safe
Heavy steel, galvanized plates
aluminum pressed and yield
where I attempted to lock it away
nothing existed
it was non-existent
I was non-existent… but you adhered
a loyal assistant
caught a snag
in the midst of oxidation
caused the revelation that sparked revolution
the rebirth and solution
four walls and a door
destroyed
you were there to fix
you the gift
kept me moving 
beat and drum
anything needed; everything I needed
no need to convince
legendary as The Sphinx
life pelts sometimes
makes no sense to me
making everything history
why you stay… why you stayed
has to be something more than me
Still here you stand
beside me
your soul & veins
I’m garden, your sun & rain
by my side
yet you complain
continuing;  always stepping in
make things change
take passing moments to rearrange
instead of enjoy the stage…
you I owe more than life
 
I owe to book…
 
ink and page…

At one point in time I had actually put down the pen. I had let life and everything else absorb my time and focus and had just let “it” consume me. Until I found that i needed the pen to live my life. It has brought sanity to my insanity. Now I need no acclaim. I know without any doubts that this gift of word and rhyme has saved my life…
 
As Always…
 
Stay Positive!
 
 
 

“Not Having Enough”


Broken Glass
 
 see how and why the world falls apart ?
all I know, is that I have my “know”
I have my heart, my mind, my spirit
how else am I supposed to get through this life, this instant.
 
I don’t know what to call what you have
but its all you have
you have twisted it, made it your vice
I acknowledge
you’ve made yourself unable to sleep at night
you can’t and wont let go
because it’s all you have in life
I don’t know how to help you get it right
 
even if I tell you there is a problem
you say im wrong
if you tell me the problem
and I dare to agree?..
im still wrong
really…
this can’t go on

I am not different or special when it comes to having downtimes or upsets in life. When we make the commitment to share this life with another person we sometimes have fights. We  have confrontations. This is a representation of what one of those unpleasant but real conversations anyone in long relationships will have. When one disagrees with the other or you find yourself in a cycle that’s needs to be broken. Well I have been there. I have written about it.  I’m moving on…
