It’s My Birthday


I don’t think it’s fair to know something that could possibly help someone else and you don’t share it.

What I learn should be shared so that we can start walking more to an enlightened state, rather that ‘base’ thinking we are all doing. I say doing because we post all these wonderful quotes and they’re just that  something someone quoted; we want to sound like we’re wise but our actions tell on us.

I’ve learned it’s not as easy to

walk the talk

but when you do

your life is better

it’s richer

and has more meaning

I learned to eat the meat

and spit out the bones

what’s for me I’ll get

and that life will come to

test you

and you have to know

what you believe in

and how you’re going

to defend that if need

be

I learned that it’s easier

to tell the truth

even though you know

some will be offended

I learned that the

initial shock is

not as bad

as it could be

if told later

I learned that friendships

take time

that we should say

who we are

in the beginning

so our energy

isn’t exasperated

over time

I learned that love is more

than words

it in all it’s forms of

authenticity

is a life force

that can’t be mined

by regret

I learned that you teach people

how to treat you

I learned to tell my truth

I learn to say

how I feel

in a way

so that you understand

Well,

those who are supposed

to will

those who don’t

won’t

I learned that when you love

someone to put your

heart out there

even when it has

been broken

but I learned that

because I learned

how to be

choosy

about who I

allow myself to

love

I learned to trust me

my feelings…..sometimes

make me hesitate

because I don’t

want to offend

but I learned that again,

you teach people how to treat you

when you give in

I learned that I can’t

love you

if I don’t love me

so when I let you

walk all over me

it’s because

I don’t love me

I learned sometimes,

that if it doesn’t mean

something big

I’ll let it slide

but when the

freebies goes unnoticed

and even unchecked

the intensity builds

up

to almost

explosions

I learned

that’s not important

for a lot

of people

but that’s okay too

just not for me

I learned that in order

to remain humble

I can’t always

look for the

praise

you have to keep doing

what got you

there

you have to learn

from it

build on it

and then give it

away…

Real Love


You could let life’s trials

distract you into

sitting still

no longer

to get up

to move

forward

but to be stuck

those who love you

will never try to

hinder your progress

they know how important

it is so they

help you walk

at the times

you need it

most

reminding you of what’s ahead.

Eclectic Thoughts


In order to get out alive

you have to have

something

spirit-filled

deep

inside

of

you

you have to open up

your soul

and let everything

out

even if you got a second

chance

would you want to take

it?

Don’t get me wrong

It’s not to say

that I don’t

love life

I do

but I don’t

want to keep

doing it over

I wonder what it was for him

all of us have it

but some of us

know how

to control

it

Those that hold on by a string

hold on a little bit longer

is all that I can

tell you

change the way

you think

no need to keep

getting the

same result

switch up

If I could help

someone

I will

Sometimes your soul

don’t want to

sometimes it’s hard

to tell if you

should

you want to hold on

just to see

but then

something

says

keep moving forward

you’ll get stuck

It’s a dilemma

because I don’t

always know

if it’s real

because if it ain’t

I gotta keep

listening with my heart


I can see who you trust

and I don’t know

why you don’t

or why you do

maybe one day

you”ll get to

tell me

those are the kind

of conversations

I’d like to have

I’d just like

to sit

and listen

with my heart

leaving my head to lag

behind just a little.

Think Like That


I remember when I knew there

was more

I was living on Rockdale

off of Telegraph

in something

that shouldn’t have

been standing

but it was mine

and it reminded

me of me

barely able to stand

but I was determined

thinking it couldn’t

end like that

I wonder if they

know what

that’s like

if she thinks like

that

I want them

to think like

that

Play At Your Own Risk


 

We had some good times

we were at middle and high school dances

making up dances

In the back yard learning how to do back walk-overs

and front walk-overs

Farting

And  laughing

growing up

and it was beautiful

Those were some good ass

times

I miss that

I seemed happier

and I wonder why

I wonder if that was the last time

that I was myself

I remember I used to dance

it was like a trance

we were one

wherever you saw one

you saw the other

Rhythms & Beats

Working together

at the same time.
