FAMILY TIME

FAMILY TIME

 

A time of laughter,

Priced more than gold,

We all need to enjoy this before we get old.

 

Smiles after smiles,

From cheek to cheek,

Let this moment be something you always seek.

FREEDOM

FREEDOM

 

You must free your body,

In order to free your mind.

Make time to explore yourself,

And you might be shocked at what you find.

 

Free your mind.

CONFIDENCE

CONFIDENCE

 

Walk in and own it.

You are a badass.

You are, your only opponent.

 

Hold your head high.

You are sexy.

Let your, wings fly.

 

Talk with power.

Your voice matters.

You are, the person of the hour.

UNTITLED

UNTITLED

 

The look on your face when you’re ecstatic.

The echo of your laughter when I’m being facetious.

The strength of your hold when I’m scared.

The physique of your body when I press against.

The softness of your cheeks when I stroke them.

The opulent strands of your hair when I thread my hands through.

The configuration of your eyes when I stare.

The thickness of ...

AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME

AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME

 

As long as you love me,

I will protect.

As long as you love me,

We will always connect.

 

As long as you love me,

I will smile.

As long as you love me,

We’ll go the extra mile.

 

As long as you love me,

I will stand strong.

As long as you love me,

We’ll never be wrong.

 

As long as you love me,

I will admire.

As long...

CLARITY

CLARITY

 

Refreshed,

Brand new,

Refined focus on what I shall do.

Visioning,

Writing,

This new plan will be much more exciting.

Diving,

Enveloping,

New strength is developing.

 

I’m glad I have received clarity.

VALUES

VALUES

 

Don’t get that, I’m getting your door.

Cheek to cheek smile, I’m making you know you’re worth more.

Making you a queen, because you are what I adore.

Take my jacket, put it down so you can step on that wet floor.

Washing your dishes, I want to do your every chore.

Listening to your words, so you don’t ever feel ignored.

Giving you wings, you deserve a chance to soa...

THE WARRIOR & THE POET

THE WARRIOR & THE POET

 

It is the warrior, not the poet, who gives us free speech.

It is life lessons, not the teacher, who continues to teach.

 

It is the believer, not the institution, that makes disciples.

It is the constitution, not the activists, that give us our rifles.

 

It is the internal drive, not motivational speakers, that gets us going.

It is the producer, ...

LITTLE THINGS

LITTLE THINGS

 

Such a cliche thing to say nowadays,

But do we realize how much two words weighs.

 

See sometimes we miss the bigger picture,

We get caught up in the fancy “this and that” mixture.

 

It is when someone writes you a letter,

Turning your bad day into a whole lot better.

 

It is when you receive a handmade gift,

Right at the end of a really bad shif...

SOCIAL FEEDIA

SOCIAL FEEDIA

 

Filling our hunger,

Since our stomachs starve,

Social feedia has now become the turkey we carve.

 

Grabbing a full plate,

Full of greasy, tender posts,

Likes, favorites and comments all of a sudden mean the most.

 

Yet we will always be hungry,

Since it will not cure,

Always feeding and this I am made sure.

AS A KID

AS A KID

 

Drip, drip, drip,

As a kid, rain always looked enticing to sip.

Moo, Moo, Moo,

As a kid, having cows lick your hand was the thing to do.

Ruff, Ruff, Ruff,

As a kid, you didn’t need anything else since a dog was enough.

Swish, Swish, Swish,

As a kid, the sound of your body in a bathtub acting like a fish.

Gulp, Gulp, Gulp,

As a kid, orange juice was the o...

EAST COAST SOUTHERNERS

EAST COAST SOUTHERNERS

 

East versus west,

They are very much different.

When put to the test,

Only one cares about the sentiment.

 

In my recent travel,

I have observed a different style.

I have written this to help unravel,

Why it is that they will talk for a while.

 

Listen to my words,

For you must know this.

They care about your bees and your birds,

FAITH

FAITH

 

To trust what cannot be seen,

This is what I call faith.

To know that it’s there,

Like some kind of wraith.

 

My savior is no ghost,

He has saved you and I from eternal pain.

He made the ultimate sacrifice,

For his perfect son was slain.

 

He knows we sin,

Yet, he still loves.

This love is beautiful,

Like two turtle doves.

 

We continue to...

RELEASE

RELEASE

                

My mind is clear,

It has finally been said,

All of that weight is now gone from my head.

 

It is refreshing,

The most shocking smile,

My joy keeps stacking pile after pile.

 

Immersion of truth,

The chains have been set free,

At least now, my mind can finally be.

APATHEIA

APATHEIA

 

A word often used by the Stoics,

Meant to reflect control of one’s emotions.

 

We often react emotionally or egotistically,

And lose control when it comes to life’s oceans.

 

We will be drowned by waves,

These are what we call comotions.

 

Everyone has them,

It’s just that some have the right potions.

 

Please understand my hints,

I’m giving ...

ALONE TIME

ALONE TIME

 

You will find a lot of growth in alone time.

You will chisel your character in alone time.

You will observe much more of life in alone time.

You will become more loving to yourself in alone time.

You will recognize your flaws and what makes you, you in alone time.

You will establish a form of independence and sustainability in alone time.

You will find peace an...

A LOVE

A LOVE

A love so strong it splits trees like thunder.

You can see the glow around your smile like fireflies.

What they cannot see is your colossal heart.

The creases in your skin add rich character and extravagant shape.

Your laugh captivates and chains my ears to listen more.

You make me crave your attention for even five minutes.

Every moment spent with you is better than th...

SELF DESTRUCTION

DOMINATION

Our world is consumed with self.

So much so, we have put others on a separate shelf.

We are constantly worried about our time.

We hardly ever ask if others are fine.

We grow with impatience waiting for food.

One simple mistake by a server puts us in a bad mood.

I have seen that many make sure to complain.

They want nothing more than to put others through pain.

SOMETIMES

SOMETIMES

Sometimes,

All you need is a little pen and paper.

Sometimes,

All you need is a full tank of gas.

Sometimes,

All you need is organic conversations..

Sometimes,

All you need is to eat stuff you’ve never eaten before.

Sometimes,

All you need is to be still.

Sometimes,

All you need is to stop thinking.

Sometimes,

Life is better when you write about ...

SAD FACE EMOJI

SAD FACE EMOJI

 

Why?

Why is it that every family has to be on their phones?

Why?

Why is it that no one looks up anymore when they’re walking?

Why?

Why is it that cousins can no longer hold conversations?

Why?

Why is it that my generation is being blamed for antisocial behavior?

Why?

Why is it that job interviews are even harder to pass nowadays?

(WARNING EXPLICIT) SEXY, YET SWEET

SEXY, YET SWEET

The boy said to the girl,

“I’m in your life to make you twirl.”

The girl said to the boy,

“Be careful, my heart is a delicate pearl.”

The boy said to the girl,

“I’m the sugar cone to your chocolate swirl”.

The girl said to the boy,

“Then put that magic inside me and make my toes curl”.

QUESTIONS

Can this exist?

Or, Am i stuck in this mist.

Will this produce?

Or, will it be cut loose.

Will I cry?

Or, just act like another normal guy.

Should I act okay?

Or, think of something to say.

Am i thinking too much?

Or, is it okay to crave your touch.

Should I lay off for a bit?

INTIMACY

 

You stare,

I stare,

Now this is a moment that we both share.

You touch,

I touch,

Now we both want each other just as much.

You kiss,

I kiss,

Now this is something that we have both missed.

You lay,

I lay,

Now this place feels the most comfortable to stay.

You whisper,

I whisper,

Now the air feels a little bit crisper.

You cuddle,

WHERE I COME FROM

WHERE I COME FROM

I come from a place that is hot ninety-nine percent of the time.

I come from a place that most people regret to call home.

I come from a place where our rivers no longer have a water line.

I come from a place where millions of cows constantly roam.

I come from a place where no one actually chooses to find.

I come from a place where many break their back just to ...

LEADERSHIP

LEADERSHIP

If I am leading, am i succeeding?

If I am taking charge, am i taking on everything that’s large?

If I am directing others, am i still treating them as my brothers?

If I am following my orders, am i going to create more division and build borders?

If I am guiding the way, am i going to learn that leadership has a price to pay?

If I am bold, am i supposed to push past wh...

CHERISH

CHERISH

It is the little things, yes.

It is also the big things, yes.

It is where your heart is at that determines your best.

    We need lots of intimate memories, true.

    We need less distractions, true.

    We need to think more about the things that we do.

          Our world is very distracted, correct.

          Our world is drying out of passion, correct.

TODAY

TODAY

My mind is content.

My heart has been filled.

All my anxieties have now been stilled.

I am here today.

I could be gone tomorrow.

So, there is no reason to rest in sorrow.

I am ready for the day.

I have little to do.

I think it is the right time to start something new.

I need to explore.

I want to expand my mind.

Today I will try to be a little more kind.

ANXIETY

ANXIETY

RELAX.

Breathe.

There is no need to stress, you see.

BE PATIENT.

Act calm.

You’ll see your problems are in fact, smaller than your palm.

BE CONFIDENT.

Please Smile.

This will all be over in just a little, while.

DECOMPRESS.

See differently.

Remind yourself, there is no need to stress, you see.

WEATHER

WEATHER

Cloudy skies,

Moisty Air,

There is so much beauty for one to bare.

Wet leaves,

Dripping tree branches,

Every inch of my heart delights in nature’s dances.

Slippery mud,

Flooded sidewalks,

This is exactly how always nature talks.

Foggy windows,

Slick roads,

All are examples of earth’s different game modes.

FALLING

FALLING

I’m falling here,

I’m falling now,

I’m falling for you, somehow.

 

Release your grip,

I’m caught too tight,

I’m stuck on a one way paradise flight.

 

I can’t leave this hold,

You’ve really got me,

Every inch of my heart you will now, see.

NO MORE

NO MORE

There will be no more Christmas for you.

There will be no more new year to look forward to.

There will be no more loving someone for you to do.

There will be no more times for you to meet someone new.

There will be no more deciding whether something is true.

There will be no more looking at how your grandkids grew.

Adiós mi abuelo, no habrá más tú.*

FAMILY OVER EVERYTHING

FAMILY OVER EVERYTHING

Is it the warm embrace of mother’s hugs?

Is it the proud love of my father for what I do?

Is it the deep conversations I have with my sister?

Is it the vast heart of a dog coupled with never-ending loyalty?

Is it the cheerful smile my grandparents shine when they look at me?

Is it the second mom/dad feeling I receive from my aunts and uncles?

Is it the c...

PERCEPTION

PERCEPTION

Rain is coming down violent,

      Yet, we see it as beautiful.

            We have chosen to look differently at it.

                  But, we can’t apply this to people.

PERSPECTIVE

PERSPECTIVE

Our minds are endless.

Our bodies create energy.

Our passions form action.

Our love inspires relationships.

Our care extends miles.

Our commitment builds cornerstones.

Our sacrifice shows vulnerability.

Choose your perception of humanity,

This is mine.

I AM

I AM

I am saddened,

I am distraught,

But, I am cared for.

 

I am missing,

I am lost,

Yet, I am also found.

 

I am finding,

I am digging hard,

Yes, I am now embracing.

 

I am transitioning,

I am creating,

Indeed, I am evolving.

 

I am confident,

I am capable,

Now, I know I am worthy.

 

Above all, I now know who I am.
