Peaceful Calming















His love flows into my valley
his voice calms the storm
he comforts me with his mind
and embraces me with his soul

I often think of him
like dew falling upon the grass
my heart remembers his melodies
as the birds sing a verse to our song

Though I cry out for him
he does not hear me
from deep in the forest
he is hidden from me

I seek to find him
I yearn to feel his touch
his strength can move a mountain
with patience in one breath

I look up to the sky
and imagine a place unknown
to only he and I
surely his pace will guide me

As we embark this journey
the destination unbeknown st
within the peace of the day
until the still of the night

Love's Parade

I can hear your heart talking to me,
but still I wonder.

If I am worthy of your embrace,
for your love I cannot replace.

I remember when we connected,
our songs united at one moment,
in unison with the whispers of the world.

I found you,
your soul found mine
and we became one.

Or have I only imagined that?
My mind is clear,
my heart is not confused.

I love you.

You loved me from an unknown place
and I constantly search to be united.
Will you welcome me in?

Don't push me away, I can't bear it.

For so long I've waited to be yours,
was I so transparent in my plight?
Because I plan to win the uphill fight.

Our love welcomes the night
and celebrates in the dawn,
day by day.

We have reached our mountain together,
our love rains down into the valley,
the fog has cleared, the pathway is near,
now that we let loves parade in.

What Makes a Woman Bitter

I get up every morning to a job where I don't feel appreciated

working like a slave to make the man's pocket larger

But I constantly have holes in mine.......



Come home to a house that needs to be cleaned

dishes that need to be washed and kids that need to be fed

My body is tired and my feet ache

But now is not the time for a break.........



Feeling like I'm being taken for granted

it seems as though all I do for others

is expected from them

but what has anyone done for me?



Constant complaining, finger-pointing and criticizing

no one seeing my point of view on anything

and you wonder why I'm cranky?



Do I really need to make it plain or waste my time explaining?

Are you so blind that you cannot see,

or you are only conscious to your own needs?

People are only concerned with self

and with little regard of anything or anyone else.

I Will


So weary was I,
that my eyes were blinded
and I could not see my way.

Trouble seemed to meet me at
the door, every single day.

Trials and tribulations escorted
me every where I went.

Until one day,
the darkness broke,
the storm was moved
and the pathway was made clear.

I heard the voice of thunder speak to me;
and no it was not a dream,
although it seemed.

I was wide awake in the midnight hour
when a voice spoke to me:

"Rise up, child, and walk with me. I am your
guide in the darkness. I will lighten your heavy
load. I will carry your burdens. I will calm your
fears. I will heal your wounds. I will ease your pain.
I will cover you. I will uplift you. I will comfort you.
I will never leave nor forsake you, because I love you."

And with that being said,
I felt a strong sense of peace come over me.
My heart was made glad and my soul rejoiced.
For the Lord our God has saved me,
and now I am free!

If Only

If I said I loved you,
would your heart be able to hear the words?
although I try to distance myself
from rejection, I can't help but be drawn to you
your soul whispers secrets to mine
only the wind can tell which direction
because both are oblivious
to one each others hidden conversations.
My imagination takes precedence
over reality sometimes, because
I am overwhelmed with what could be
or what might have been, but-
I have to check myself in the end.
And when I look into our eyes,
I see the love you have inside
and I wish it was mine.
To belong to you,
maybe that's too much to require or
maybe I'm trippin.
But what's so wrong with being in love?
Why are people so afraid of it?
Love will never hurt you yes, I know, sometimes people do.
It may be a risk, but when with benefits
Do you ever feel lonely?
If so, remember me.
I'll always be here.
Let love conquer your fears.
When it knocks, let it in
and let love begin.

Campbell Soup-Part 2

HE FINE, BUT HE DON'T KNOW IT
HE SENSITIVE, BUT HE DON'T SHOW IT
LAID BACK BROTHER WITH INTELLIGENT COMPOSURE
NOT ORDINARY BECAUSE THE WAY HE LOVES IS EXTRADINARY NEVER PLACES HIS LADY AS SECONDARY
DON'T LIKE TO FIGHT BUT HE WILL IF HE HAS TO
BECAUSE HE KNOWS A MAN HAS TO DO WHAT HE HAS TO
HE WOULDN'T DISRESPECT A WOMAN
CUZ HE REMEMBERS WHAT HIS MAMA TAUGHT HIM
DADDY WASN'T AROUND BUT HE STILL STANDS STRONG
NOT BOOK SMART BUT HE KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG
BLUE JEANS AND A WHITE TEE HAIR BRAIDED AND A GOAL TEE TATTOOS AND A HEAD RAG
BOOTS OR TENNIS SHOES
BUT HE CAN STILL WEAR A SUIT AND TIE
MANY GIRLS FEELING HIM
SO HE MAY BE A PLAYER
HE DOESN'T MEAN TO BE A HEART SLAYER
BUT HIS DEMEANOR HAS MANY LAYERS
