Write a poem about: A Tree

Sometimes we don't recognize our own strength until we look back over our lives and realize that we're still here! I've been through what seems like hell and back, and I'm still here, but not just me, my people too; my ancestry The deep dark truth that hangs from silent trees-seemingly existing only in books,...

Desire, One Day at a Time

  I want to be lazy and give in to indifference; making the minimum effort (read a little and pray a little) just enough to note a difference or a slight increase in my usual devotion, but not enough for it to hurt, stretch or challenge me. This, I know, is a crazy and impossible... Continue Reading →

Confront Pride and Apologize

Ever notice that we are usually the offended and NEVER the offender? We often deem ourselves in the right to receive an apology and very FEW times realize we have wronged, hurt and even BROKEN others and therefore need to make things RIGHT.... Acknowledging this undesirable truth about ourselves is not easy, but it’s necessary,... Continue Reading →

On reality, it has been well over a year since I've posted anything new, well, actually closer to two years. I've finally surrendered to the fact... Continue Reading →

Fear Factor

I enjoy sitting in front of this computer, but it seems I never have the time, but deep down, the truth is, there is time when I make time, and I have not been making time the way that I know I can. There are always thoughts and ideas running through my mind of what... Continue Reading →

A thought to seize the day

"The tragedy in devastation lies not in the event, but in the lack of a lesson learned." When I consider various life threatening or life taking occurrences around the world, whether it be natural disasters or personally dreadful events, I am touched at how it often leads many of us affected, to want to embrace...

Reflecting, Saturday, July 28, 2012

Reflecting on my teenage years, I remember constantly praying to God on behalf of my mother. What seems like everyday, I asked Him to spare her life and release her from the relentless grips of drug addiction, which had her bound way before I can even remember. I remember fearing that she wouldn't live long... Continue Reading →
