I Love


CAM01206

I love

your hues of brown

some light

in some places

dark

in others

hues

melded together

making colors

never before seen

I love

your hands

always warm

Beautiful

but yet strong

your feet

although worn

are like stilts

taking you higher

Although pain

guides them with

each step

I love

your eyes

small

but they

see

father

than you could

ever imagine

that you

would go

I love

your mouth

not too big

yet not too small

lips

perched

ready to bless

with thoughts

given by

the Creator

I love

your mind

you see your faults

but are eager

to change them

into greatness

because you know

that learning is

better

than not

And that life

is about growing

and

getting better

I love

your stretch marks

they bear witness

to the life

that you gave

A constant reminder

that you

are the root

that gives

nourishment

to the tree

its branches

and leaves

It took awhile

to see you

but now

I do

and

I love you

for who you were

For who you are

for who you will become

I love me…

Not Everyone Can Go


I wish but deeply pray

that you could go with me on this journey

I don’t know if it is possible for you to ride with me

I know you’re not ready

I wish you were

I secretly pray that you were

But you can’t

You’re not ready to explore

Explore the depths of your own soul

You want to continue to look on the outside

For the light

The light that you already possess

You don’t want to look at your scars

And turn them into strength

You look at them as the flaws or weaknesses in you

Rather than look at how they make you strong

You play around with the truth

Told the same story so much

You believe it

I’m not asking you to pick at the scab

But to put a little ointment on it

So you can begin to heal

For real

Not the cover up that you place on top

And whenever asked

You get taken to a place where no one understands

Because you’re not ready

Ready to go on that journey

That journey to look deeper

To be deeper

To change your thoughts

You know that it can be lonely

But it’s necessary

You don’t want to open it

Peel back the layers so you can

Purify your soul

Breathe

Love was so strong

It made it hard

for me to breathe

But I wanted to

I wanted to try

To breathe

So hard

i don’t know what happened

It’s like

We both stopped

Breathing

I still can’t breathe

I wonder why

We forget

To breathe

Breathing was good

Breathing

Filled you up

From the inside out

It took care

Of what was

inside first

That’s the only way you gonna make it….

Breathe
