Poem: Remembering Nature

Posted in Life tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:23 AM by Kay

The wind gently blows the leaves

as the birds chirp away.

The summer heat strengthens its power

as the shade of the trees restricts its reach.

The beauty of nature surrounds the city

as the people go about their day.

A mother takes her child to the park

to burn some of the energy away.

We all live in a world where sometimes

the simplest of things are taken for granted.

Poem: The Path to Success

Posted in Motivation tagged , , , , , at 12:37 PM by Kay

The path to success

is sometimes a turbulent road.

Obstacles come along

and throw you a curve.

You veer to the right

to avoid impact

but sometimes

you are struck anyway.

You come out

without a scratch

but cautiously

proceed on.

Before you know it,

your goal is reached

and success

you have won.

Poem: With This Breath I Do Take

Posted in Religion-inspired tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 2:49 PM by Kay

With this breath, I do take

full control of my life.

I must not let the pain of the past

overshadow my future.

I promise to forgive my enemies

and forgive myself for my transgressions.

For every day I wake,

I promise the Lord

I will make it great.

I will no longer allow myself to mope around

and feel sorry for myself.

I will rise to the good

and fight the bad.

I will love with a love

I have never had

now, tomorrow,

and for the rest of my life.

Poem: Persistence

Posted in Motivation tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:23 AM by Kay

Persistence is resistance to distraction.

It is diligence to a cause.

It is never giving up

until a goal is reached.

It is strong determination

and undying will.

It is hard work

and dedication.

It is irrepressible strength.

It is extraordinary desire.

It is extreme focus

and not accepting no for an answer.

Poem: Sometimes I Feel Like My World is Tumbling Down

Posted in Motivation tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:17 PM by Kay

Sometimes I feel like my world is tumbling down.

Then I realize I could not even be around.

I wonder how I could have been such a fool.

I was a fool, a fool in love.

I loved this man with all of my heart.

However, circumstances tore us apart.

Sometimes I wonder how I can go on.

I know life must go on

Sometimes we make wrong decisions that shift

our life in an unknown direction

At the time, we think we are doing the right thing.

In life, we learn the heart can be misleading.

With each mistake comes a time of reflection.

Why oh why did I choose such direction?

I will never view love as naively as I did before.

With each chance meeting, I will proceed with caution.

I will live life being thankful for every breath I take

and every move I make.

I thank God for allowing me to survive.

Without him, nothing is possible.

I give advice whenever I can

and heed advice whenever I can.

If I can save only one life,

I feel as if I have scored a million.

Life is so precious,

and life should be lived to the fullest

It is silly to say I wish I could live life over.

What is wrong with living life now?

Tomorrow is not promised.

Love is not promised.

However, love does exist.

Love does not hurt

and love doesn’t kill.

Love cannot be bought.

Love must be learned and earned.

Love is necessary for a blissful life.

I love myself for who I am

and not for who I am to anyone else.

To get through any bad thing,

there must be a good thing

I am the good thing, and I love me.

Whether fat or thin,

I love me.

Whether rich or poor,

I love me.

Love yourself first,

and others will love and respect you

Be strong for you

if you can’t be strong for anyone else.

With every mistake,

reflect and go on.

Do not spend a lot of time wondering…what if.

Go after your dreams.

Live life, love life, and most of all be happy.

I am happy with me

and there is not a person I would rather be.

It took a lot to get to this point.

I do not regret a thing.

I am a better person to have survived

and a stronger person to have gone through it.

Poem: Words Cannot Describe

Posted in Joys of Romance tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:40 PM by Kay

Words cannot describe

the depth of your touch,

or the feeling it sends

throughout my body.

I look in your eyes,

and I see your heart.

I feel your pain,

and I feel your love.

The times we share

brings such happiness

taking me to

a time unknown.

Words cannot describe

how much I love you

or how you make me feel inside.

I will never forget

the strength of your touch.

It overcomes my body and soul.

I think of you

every waking moment.

Dreaming of you

‘til the end of time.

Never will I love

another as I love you.

You bring good to my life.

I am thinking of you

every day

wishing you

would come my way.

Words cannot describe

my feelings for you.

Feelings so deep

and feelings so true.

As time passes,

I will always love you.

You will forever remain

a part of me

for now,

forever

and eternity.

Poem: Sometimes

Posted in Religion-inspired tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:39 AM by Kay

Sometimes the burdens become so great.

Too great, sometimes for the heart to bear.

In those times an ear is needed

to listen, to confide in, to console.

When that ear is not easily found,

the Lord’s ear is always around.

He is non-judgmental and always there.

Through undying faith

the Lord will heal that burdened, bleeding heart

and in time,

the burdens will cease.

Your heart will rejoice from release.

Sometimes we doubt the present and wonder why.

Life is too short for doubt and disbelief.

We must strive to always do what is right.

Keep our faith and realize that

sometimes we are put to a test

requiring strength stronger than physical strength.

This strength is faith and cannot be touched.

It is not seen and is not learned.

It is felt.

When your belief is so immense,

that it cannot be broken.

The burdens that come to pass will not last

and your life will be more enriched

not just sometimes,

but all of the time.

Welcome to my world of poetry.

Loving Yourself

Loving yourself is vital to existence.

When you love yourself,

you generate positive energies.

You have the desire to dream

and have self-esteem so great

that no one or nothing can tear it apart.

You only want the best for yourself

and will settle for nothing less.

You are important to your survival

and rely on no one to make you happy

because your happiness exists within.
