Things to Remember When I’m Afraid

By |June 9th, 2014|

Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne

But the thing I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King

There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring

Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst

So why […]

Fearless

By |May 27th, 2013|

I think I could be an amazing woman

And do amazing things

I’ve been thinking

What if I was fearless

What adventure could that bring

 

Could I jump out of a plane?

Or go swimming with the sharks

Could I climb a mountain?

Go dancing after dark

 

Could I learn the salsa,

Meringue, mambo, flamenco

Could I run a marathon, go parasailing

Or taste escargot?

Nah!

 

Could I fly […]

Did I Forget?

By |April 12th, 2013|

Did I forget

my kids are awesome

my husband is great

I am beautiful

if not too late

 

Still have my life

my life to live

so much to do

so much to give

 

Did I forget

the many ways I’m blessed

to focus on what’s good

and forget about the rest

 

Did I forget

I’ve got talent

there’s so much I could do

Lord, did I forget to look up

keep […]

Each Their Own Gift

By |April 12th, 2013|

I watched them in awe

the roles they play

making a difference in our lives,

day by day

 

Each playing a part

Their own puzzle piece

Without them things wouldn’t run as smoothly,

not in the least

 

But what they are doing

They’re just doing their due

without a single clue

to what it is they do

 

They play a special part

they just didn’t know

that without their […]

I Am Courage

By |April 12th, 2013|

I am courage

because I am afraid

but despite my fear

I persevere

 

I am courage

because I dream

but despite my doubts

I try them out

 

I am courage

because I stand

despite my trembling legs

and shaky hands

 

I am courage

because I move forward

despite my temptation

to be a coward

 

I am courage

because I step up and step out

despite the fear inside me sprout

 

I am courage

because I […]

Never Again Will You Steal My Joy

By |March 16th, 2013|

You try to take my glow away

Ha, I’m on to you!

 

You think I’m unaware,

that I don’t see what you do

 

Doing all you can,

to make my light go out

Don’t think I don’t know what you are all about

 

Trying to knock me down

and keep me down there

 

But I have news for you

I’m staying right here

 

Up, up, up […]

Break Out

By |July 17th, 2012|

I wanna break free, break out, break through

God knows I can’t count the many things I wanna do

 

My dreams are so big, my heads about to pop

When I have to settle, my heart starts to drop

 

I wanna jump so high, I could touch the clouds

I wanna raise my voice, I wanna get loud

 

I wanna run, […]

The Race

By |April 21st, 2012|

On your mark!

Get set!

Go!

 

Got to keep running

Haven’t reached the end yet

Can’t stop running until my destiny is met

 

But sometimes in this race

I get tired and weary

And some parts of this race is even a little bit scary

My knees are ready to fall

Don’t know if I’m gonna finish the race at all

 

I wanna keep going, keep […]

Depressed

By |April 21st, 2012|

Down

Depressed

Down in the dumps

 

Doubtful

Distressed

Throat full of lumps

 

Don’t know what to do

Where to go from here

Down

Depressed

Filled with despair

 

Need a bit of cheering up

Because I’m so weary

Feeling a bit under the weather

It’s all so dreary

 

Down, depressed, distressed, drained

These digging emotions, drive me insane

 

Need some sunshine

To shine through the rain

Need to get away

By boat, plane or train

 

Down, depressed, […]
