Beautifully Intriguing 

Crowded mind

Hazy thoughts 

Dilated eyes 

Smoky skies  

Memories made 

People fade 

Battles of the heart lost 

Wars with the mind won

A new page turned 

Another chapter begun 

Friendships survived

Through good and bad times 

All a part of the journey called life

So short but yet so long 

Where God guides 

I try my best to abide

The path always appears 

So many times I’ve been spared 

Down on my knees 

I begged Him please

He picked me up 

Told me to stand on my own two feet 

Though I may trip

I will never fall 

Constantly on the rise 

Even when my back is against the wall 

Breakthroughs orchestrated by the universe

Always arrive 

Right in the nick of time 

He reminds me He’s always looking out 

Always holding me down 

The light shines through from within 

Even though sometimes it might dim 

In the darkness 

I’ll always find me 

My light will always guide me to where I need to be 

There is a reason for everything 

The reason being we don’t always see it

Life’s intricate unpredictability 

Makes the unfolding beautifully intriguing 


Fiending Feelings 

Endure so much in silence 

The idea of sharing what I feel lost all its vibrance 

Don’t wanna fuck the vibe up

Anxiety gone right up 

On rapid, my mind is stuck 

Been wondering if it’s just a bout of bad luck 

Not so sure if I’m really happy anymore 

Or if I even care at all 

The moments clock by 

And I’m not sure how or why 

Days go by, then weeks 

Now it’s 2017 

Slowly trying to reconnect 

Just one more attempt 

I couldn’t possibly relay this feeling 

I can barely allow myself to feel it 

Suppressed so much for so long 

I no longer know which ones are right or wrong 

All I can do is never retreat 

After all

How can I retreat from me 

With the dawn 

Another chance has spawned 

The rising of the moon 

Letting me know a new beginning is coming soon 

Regardless of the pain I feel

I’ll never stop giving and receiving 

My love will out live me 

Long after I’ve completed this journey 

One thing I’ve found 

Is that my heart knows no bounds 

It’s resilience has made my spirit strong 

Even though the road can be so long 

As long as my soul can withhold 

All the things that are about to unfold 

Strangers with a purpose (Random thought)

We’re always told how important it is to get to know ourselves before getting to know someone else. For obvious reasons like to avoid getting our hearts broken in the process or weakening our individuality by being easily influenced by another force. Yes, this is very sound advice, but there are those who come into our lives and help us undiscover a part of us we never knew existed.  The first thought might be, how can it possibly be healthy to allow ourselves to be that vulnerable when we were probably vulnerable in some way to begin with. But, sometimes the universe subliminally sends what you need when you need it, and sometimes this is in the form of a stranger. 

So, no, actively seeking someone to provide you with some eureka moment about yourself and your worth is a negative implication in itself. Clearly, this is not as black and white as we would like it to be but the universe has a way of making you know when someone is enriching to your soul and calming to your heart. You’ll know. It might not happen in the moment, but instead, after they exit our life and you look back. You’ll see where they contributed to your growth. Sometimes, that’s a stranger’s sole purpose for entering into your life. And sometimes, they leave when their purpose has been fulfilled. They’ll be gone but the knowledge they imparted on us will resonate.
