Face Everything And Rise

When faced with the unknown,
fear will occur
It will make you irrational
It will make you doubt yourself
It will paralyze you from taking action
and
it will justify excuses
Ultimately though,
fear is a choice
It’s not something we’re born with
but rather something learned through experience
To overcome it
we need to acknowledge it
by
accepting the failures,
accepting the hardships,
accepting the challenges
and
be willing to overcome it
by being steadfast and courageous
and facing everything
knowing that
if we give our utmost,
our very heart and soul
we’ll eventually rise

Be Who You Are

Your words may
not be the most
eloquent,
emotional,
humorous,
thought-provoking,
informative,
or
inspirational
but that does not mean
you should give up writing
The fact that you’re
making an attempt
to share yourself
despite being judged
makes you a devoted
artist to your craft
with the heart and spirit
of a true writer
So lift someone up
with your words
and
make it stand the test of time

Take Time To Reflect

Once in awhile,
as a writer,
take the time
to stop and take a moment
to know that
you connected with someone,
somewhere in this world,
with your words
chosen from
your heart,
mind,
and soul
Never give up
your passion for writing
and
share your story
with the world
because
your voice
needs to be told

To Be In Love Again

To be in love again
that’s where I want to be
Having that feeling once more
is most precious to me
For that was a sensation
I thought would never end
But now that it’s gone
my heart’s all broken
To be in love again
is a dream far from me
I need to feel it once more
to end all my misery
Feeling lost and so afraid
of what might not be
My heart’s all alone
lost sight of its beauty
Will you be the one
to set my heart straight?
Will our hearts intertwine?
Will love be our fate?
This passion I longed for,
will it hopefully come from you?
Love can be ours,
our hearts can become anew
Can you please help me
find my way back to love?
Help set my life right
to my heart be a part of
Please open your heart
and save a place there for me
I need to find my way back home
to experience love carefree.


When Words Don’t Come Easy

When the well runs dry
and words don’t flow freely,
take a step back…
pause…
reflect…
on all your past work,
relish in the creativity
you created from nothing
and take pride
in knowing you did something
that was brought forth from
your heart,
your soul,
your inner voice
What was once there
is never gone
It just needs time to
rest and recharge
When all is said and done,
you’ll be back
to reinvent yourself
with eloquent words
that will convey your passion
to the world.
