Drained

By |January 9th, 2012|

I don’t want to complain

But I’m going insane

It all feels so mundane

I’m completely drained

 

Wish I could get on a plane

Or maybe a train

Before I go completely insane

And my life-force is completely drained

 

I want to try something new

Change my point of view

I need a new scene

Before I scream

 

Need a retreat

Something so sweet

Need something new

Before I turn […]

More

Lord, I know there is only so much one person could do

But am I really doing all I could do?

I know there is more out there to see

I know there is a bigger plan for me

 

Open my eyes, Lord

Let me see

What is your plan for me?

 

What is my purpose?

What can I do?

To make a difference

To […]

Glimpse

By |January 9th, 2012|

If this is what I can accomplish

with the strength and courage I lack

I wonder the things I could do,

if I didn’t let fear hold me back

 

What if I no longer fed my fears and doubts?

Fed my faith instead

How much further would I be ahead

 

What dances I’d dance

What songs I’d sing

What poems I’d write

If I freed […]

The World Out There

By |January 9th, 2012|

Don’t get me wrong

I know they are worst problems in this world

Than the problems of this silly little girl

 

I go hungry for one hour

Others go hungry for days

The amount of food I throw away

They would eat in so many ways

 

I have a home, a beautiful one

Even if it is not where I dreamt I’d live

But […]

Step-Up

By |January 9th, 2012|

There’s a job out there

Only you could do

You know why?

Cause there’s no one else like you

 

No other piece of puzzle

Can fit in your spot

No one else have got

What it is you’ve got

 

So step up

Don’t hide out

Now you know

That’s not what life’s about

 

Get up

Don’t sit down

Do what you were meant to

Turn this world around

 

Shake things up

Just […]

Take Care of You

By |January 9th, 2012|

(A poem for my parents)

 

I wanna take care of you

Make your life better

Take your worries and pain away

forever and ever

If only I had that power

I want to buy you a big house,

one with a garden,

a thriving business

fulfilling your passion

 

I wanna take care of you

I don’t want you to have to fight anymore,

cry anymore

I wanna take […]

Calm

By |January 9th, 2012|

Inhale, exhale

Quiet

Shhhh

Soft sweet

Silence

 

No whining, no screaming

No crying, no fighting

Just calm

 

Shhhhh

No talking

I don’t want to even think

Who cares about the dishes in the sink?

 

Listen to some jazz music

and just dance

Hold myself close

Wrap up in the warmth of my own embrace

Loving myself for being myself

Taking a moment in this quiet place

 

You did it good girl

You survived the day

Now […]

Quiet Place (Meditation)

By |January 9th, 2012|

In this quiet place

I hear God’s world sing

Beautiful melodies of heaven

A paradise free from sin

I am no longer held captive

I am set free

In this quiet place God speaks to me

He told me in paradise there are no battles to fight

He whispers “hush, my child, it’ll be alright”

He instructed, “Be illuminated by the light”

In this quiet […]

Captivated

By |January 9th, 2012|

I’m captivated by you

I’m in awe

You make me feel so good

You make my life better, you take away my fear

I close my eyes just so I could

Make everything else disappear

Then it’ll be just me and you

Alone together

No cars, no buildings, no wires, no man made clatters

Just the sound of sweet nature is all that matters

God […]

Fix Things

By |January 9th, 2012|

I want to fix things

Make things better

I want to encourage the world

With poetic love letters

 

I want to mend broken hearts

And weave marriages torn apart

 

I want to love all unloved children

And raise them as my own

Show them they are special and worthy

God’s very own

 

I want to mentor youth

Teach them how to lead

Help them find their way

So […]
