What do you do?

They want you….they want you….they need you…..they mislead you….they hate you…..they envy you…..they motivate you….they hug you….they kiss you…..they blame you…..they humiliate you…..they misjudge you…..they pretend they care for you…….

You see it….you feel it…you forgive it….you love it….you hate it….you cry for it…..you die because of it……you give to it…..you learn from it…..

They come together

You stand alone……..

Your trust is broken…..you seek a healing……you’re healed…..

You live again. You love again.

If I can’t love you…..

You know I’ve thought of you and had to pretend what we shared didn’t exist

& you know I can’t help it if my confidence in our ability to love is too overwhelming for you

I was born this way I was born with a mustard seed of love that overshadows

my garden of rotten tomatoes…….so if I can’t love you I truly understand.

If I can’t love you, may GOD bless the next man with a heart, mind, body, & soul

ready to receive my love.

& GOD bless me with the wisdom to know when he has arrived….

What is a S-M-I-L-E ?

Something I’ve never known for too long…

Something that stole my heart one too many times

Something I love to think of as a honest friend of mine

Something oblivious to the pain I re-live everyday

Something I can’t understand even when its explanation is in my genetic make-up

Something that upsets me every time I want to feel pitiful

Something that melts away my every doubt

Hopeful in its own manner, a smile changes EVERYTHING

A smile is the circle ring I wear when I come into contact with

committing to serving your love………….

The Breakthrough

So close I can smell it

So potent I dwell in it…….

So far I’m exhausted

So focused I lost it………

As if life hasn’t shown me its pits

As if pain hasn’t shown me his every outfit

As if love hasn’t given me a beautiful outlet

As if faith hasn’t told me not to doubt it………

I’m proud about it, I pout about it, and I can live without it

but I need it now……….I need it now……I need it now…..

A BREAKTHROUGH! Please BREAK ME THROUGH!
