“There Is No Manual”

20180322_231017
Everyone
In this world
Has an inheritance
Of unlimited
Wealth
Beyond what
Money could buy
It is in the
Opportunities
We have
The passion
That fuels us
To chase dreams
And
Push
Our mind
To getting
Where we want
To be
In this life
And
To complete
This quest
For what
Is destined
To be
Your life
Know
It is after
You have
Opened
Your eyes
Taken
Your first breath
That you
Need to
Look towards
The stars
Claim what
Is yours
Realize that
They are yours
To take
No one can
Tell you
How far
How wide
You should
Travel
No one
Can tell you
How many
Dreams
You can have
Because
You can have
As many as
You want
As long as
You are
Willing to reach
For them
They are yours
To take
Make your own
Path
Write your
Own story
Use your heart
As a compass
Your spirit
As your strength
Fill your mind
With as much positivity
So when
You are
Faced with people
That want
To stand
In your way
Screaming at you
That you
Can not do it
Know it is
Their failure
Talking
Not yours
Push through
They do not
Have a manual
There is
No right
Or
Wrong
Directions
In your journey
To how you
Get there
Just get
There
Nonetheless

“Familiar Surroundings”

20180111_210114
I want
To know
More about it
It does not
Frighten me
Threaten me
It intrigues me
A silhouette
That lingers
In my dreams
Standing
In the dark
In a corner
Teasing me
In a playful manner
Acting shy
But not afraid
Of me
It knows me
I am familiar
With its presence
So I do not know
Why it refuses
To come into
The light
I squint
To get
A better view
I walk closer
To touch it
I try to
Talk to it
But it moves
Further away
Out of my reach
Keeping silent
Drawing me into
The mystery
Of its existence
My curiousity
Continues to build
Its evasiveness has
Created ardent flames
Inside of me
I am yearning
For them
To be calmed
By this faceless
Companion
That has been
Enticing me
Into wanting
To hear
How the story of
Us began
How it knows me
Why does it hide
In the shadow
Of my dreams
And what does
It want from me
Besides my reminiscence
Of a familiar presence
That visits me
In my dreams
All through
The night

“Fear Holding You Back”

20171208_231633
Speak what
You need
Into existence
Breath life
Into your
Every desire
And watch it
Grow into
Something magnificent
Make your dreams
Become reality
Do things
You need to do
Say things
You need to say
Go places
You want to go
Work your butt off
Like no other
Be your own
Champion
Fight for
You
And
Your legacy
Because no one
Will do it
For you
Do not be
Afraid
To be honest
Honest to
The one person
That counts
That reflection
Of yourself
Staring back
At you
On the other
Side of the mirror
She/he is asking
You to love
Yourself
Before You
Give yourself
To another
Be it true
In a clear
Detailed manner
Leaving no room
For confusion
Or doubt
Because once
You love yourself
People will begin
To see all of you
And what you offer
To the world
Stop
Letting things
Go
By passing up
On perfect
Opportunities
It is no crime
To be selfish
Sometimes
It’s necessary
So you do not
Lose yourself
And forget
Your purpose
For living
