She is Beauty

She stood tall and proud
Like a queen on her throne
There was not a hair out of place
Her nails straight and clean
Like she’s never done a single chore in her life
The clothes she wore were immaculate
Her eyes shone like a bright star
And her smile illuminated her surroundings
Sure in her every step
Certain in her every word
She marched on like a predator
Never wavering from her goal
Her certainty shone brighter than any beauty

Prisoner

He slept soundlessly
Breathing so lightly
A smile crosses the corner of his lips
A twitch of the eye
But never stirs for a second

Maybe he didn’t know
He must be at peace
Hiding in that land of greens
Such peace and tranquillity
A gift from the angels

He saw the rivers flow
He felt the wind on his face
Soothing his mind, calming his heart
The grass so warm and soft beneath his feet
The sun so gentle on his skin
Like a welcoming fire on a cold night

His eyes opened wide
His arms stretched out
But there was no end
Nor beginning

He ran for all the breath in his lungs
He screamed at the top of his voice
Laughed like there was no fear
And as he breathed in that sweet scent of lavender
The world became a bubble of happiness

Then he opened his eyes
Reality knocked him breathless
Laying there in bed motionless
The white and blue robes twirling around him

With the force to move mountains
He willed his body to move
Even a tweak
Yet all remained stagnant

He closes his eyes and wishes for the grass beneath his feet
The wind rushing past him as he ran
And the sunlight upon  his face

But in reality
He remained a prisoner

Ain’t Nobody

Ever been out and felt like,
Nobody out there is thinking about ya
Ever been out and felt like,
Nobody out there cares about you
Ever thought that even if you crash
Ain’t nobody gonna come for you
Ain’t nobody gonna show up,
Nobody seems to give a damn
Look out here
You are all alone
No matter how loud you scream
Ain’t nobody gonna hear a word you say
You’re all alone
No matter how hard you try
Ain’t nobody gonna notice a thing
Even when you gone missing
Ain’t nobody gonna come looking for ya
Ever been out there and felt like,
Ain’t nobody gonna come save ya
So you pack your things
Coz nobody is gonna miss ya
Ever been out there and felt like,
There’s no need looking back
Coz ain’t nobody
Ain’t nobody gonna miss ya
Ever been, ever been, ever been, ever been
Ever been, ever been, ever been

#lovebeyondwords

Have you ever…?
The most basic question that comes to mind when you are talking about love.
Brandy’s song “have you ever loved somebody” got me thinking on so many things…but mostly I wonder how true her words are.

Have you ever loved someone so much that you forgot what its like to think about yourself? Have you ever loved someone so much that every time they walk through that door you catch your breathe? No matter how many times in whatever amount of timeframe? Have you ever loved soneone so much that every time you close your eyes it is their face you see, their laughter you hear, their touch you feel? Have you ever loved someone so much that life felt meaningless without them? No matter how many times they hurt you, you always find a reason to forgive them because the alternative just seemed too impossible to contemplate?

The world stops moving and time becomes meaningless. No matter how much we fight it we cannot win and maybe most of the time we do not want that feeling to ever go away…that powerful emotion within us is what makes us feel so alive…

So tell me…Have you ever…?

#nevergiveuponyourself

When you start that journey and think you will never get there. That first step you take and keep praying that you will keep fighting no matter what.
We’ve come so far, struggled for so long and then one day you wake up and realize you’ve reached that one extra step that brings you closer to your dreams and goals.

Sometimes you reach a point and feel like you cant go any further, and yet you keep pushing because you know there is still some fight left in you. Life is not a straight line with roses and daisies, it is filled with thorns and pitfalls, mountains and oceans to cross…thats the real road you will travel and with each step you will find yourself on the brink of despair.

The good news is the destination is totally worth it all! As long as you keep fighting and giving it all you got, there is always that red carpet leading you to that victory!

My friend, never give up on yourself…you are your own best option!
