Poem: Keeping the Faith

Posted in Religion-inspired tagged , , , , at 5:12 PM by Kay

Every day I think about what happened that day.

I keep a mental picture of everything I do.

I notice how people act toward me day by day.

I see how humans can quickly change their ways.

One day a friend, the next day an enemy.

What shall I do?

Shall I give up totally or shall I keep living this way?

People are the same wherever you go.

You have to adjust to the ways of man.

You must be prepared to take what is dished out.

If you know you are doing right and they are wrong,

the only thing left is keeping the faith.

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.
