Careful the mind does not Daunt

It takes motivation, will, and determination

And to want it really bad

But to manifest a goal in sight

You must develop the behaviors you once thought you had

As dedication and discipline

Comes with a price

Don’t rest on your laurels

Make the sacrifice

It will not come easy

You must persevere

Navigate any resistance

Keep the mind clear

Illuminate the purpose

The heart wants what it wants

You cannot serve two masters

Careful the mind does not daunt

We All Need Inspiration

I like that you inspire me

A breath of fresh air- the oxygen for my soul to feed

I thrive when your influence

Allows my heart to again be freed

Some people irradiate an energy

A silent nurturing for a receptive soul indeed

Allow me to show this open heart

One you can easily read

We all need inspiration

A positive agency for a planted seed

And so I pay homage to my muse

One that helps me to proceed

This is what I Advocate

My education was everything

It defined who I am

Three classes short of two degrees

My employer and girlfriend really didn’t give a damn

All I wanted growing up

Was love to nourish me

A family that could not respond

Co-dependent parents incapable of hearing my plea

So I wandered

But a childhood comes back to visit

Gets in your head and dreams

Haunting and inexplicit

Self-reliance a razors edge

Give up on just one person

Your own path

Is destined to worsen

Because of these things

I have stumbled along

But I never gave up

My spirit is humbled yet strong

Dust off the past

A new day awaits

Awaken the moxie

This is what I advocate

My Indignation

Blinded by lust

Blinded by the misplaced trust

Blinded by my human frailty

I’ve awakened my disgust

Come to terms with my past

I shall not be so easily deceived

I struggle to move on

As I am still bereaved

My indignation

Not such a bad thing

I look to myself

What do I bring?

Cast away my mistakes

Learn from lessons I observe

Make my adjustments

It’s all about what I preserve?

WikiPsalm #Thirty Three

A function of forgetting

Thinking we’ve lost something we already possess

We restrict our limitations

We limit what we profess

The scarecrow, the lion, the Tin man of Oz

Each had challenges but came to understand

What is and what is not possible

Within the grasp of their hand

The Many Things I Love about You

Your hands are soft

Like a velvet glove

The laughter you give

Are the things I write of

You have a warm heart

You sometimes will shield

You remain strong

But only in love will you yield

The smile of an angel

Will look upon my face

The eyes deeply expressing

To me what you embrace

From different worlds

That we might be

Are still but the same

For you and me

Your hair is radiant

Giving shimmer and shine

I want only to caress it

In these hands of mine

The words that you speak

Have me under a spell

The voice that I love

Makes my heart swell

The many things I love about you

I have yet to learn

I keep my heart open

And save them in turn

DCG

Me llenas mi corazon con Alegria – You Fill my Heart with Joy

I pray to find the words

That comforts you inside

Knowing that you can trust me

Without having to hide

If I believe in you

And you believe in me

The only thing that matters

Is our shared opportunity

There are times in our lives

Our affection is misplaced

Not finding what is best for ourselves

Because we often act out of haste

So ask yourself these questions

Are they genuinely interested in me?

Are they looking out for my best interest?

Can they give of themselves freely?

You fill my heart with joy

So here I am thanking you

Tender is the soul

From the feelings that are true
