Remember Your Feelings

The most memorable things we’ve read,
stay with us
because
we compile our experiences
based on how we felt in the moment
We use that excitement, that longing or that love
to make us know
how important it was
If you want to remember
the most beautiful or most precious thing you read,
don’t try to recall the exact words
Try to recall that feeling you had
then the true essence of the words
will surface

My Father

As a child growing up, I saw my father as a strong, strict, disciplinarian that was in charge of raising four children. But as the years passed, he was much more than that. My dad was a teacher, a sage that taught me useful skills and unknown life hacks that I still use to this day.
As a teenager moving at 90 mph into adulthood, my dad became a therapist that imparted wise advice and guidance that helped me make major decisions in shaping my outlook on life. In addition, he was also a positive cheerleader that gave unyielding support in all my endeavors.
As we both grew older, my father’s stern exterior was soon softened and a nurturing side developed when he spent time with his grandchildren. Through my children’s eyes, I saw a man that would do goofy things for a laugh and a smile, give comforting hugs in times of sadness and instill a sense of goodness whenever possible.
My dad may not be as strong as before and he may not have new knowledge to impart on me, but he continues to be supportive and extremely generous in his own unique way.
Growing up having him as a father, is truly a gift. I could not be more proud and honored to be called his son. And I am carrying on the tradition of imparting his traits onto my children and hopefully become like my father…the man that I now idolize and adore.

Trust The Process

Trust your writing process,
it requires time and effort
Consistency is mandatory
Discipline and practice makes progression
Regardless of ability, circumstances, excuses or doubt
What you give is what you get
A writer’s inner voice
is designed to express
passion, love, hope, joy, sadness, humor, thought
If a writer works with their
inner voice naturally
The words evoke a heartfelt message
to those in need of it
So trust yourself,
trust your voice
and
trust the process

Be Carefree

Every path we take,
every mistake we encounter,
every success we experience,
adds richness
to our inner voice
So go out into the world,

let go of yourself
and
be vibrant,
feel invincible,
spread love,
it will give meaning
to our words,
it will inspire,
it will connect
,
most of all,

a better writer


Our True Human Nature

With renewed eyes,
I venture out into
this changed world that’s
filled with unlimited chaos
and relentless despair
in hopes of finding
some semblance
of humanity
In my heart of hearts,
I know that each one of us
possess the
goodness, compassion,
kindness, generosity,
bravery and love
needed to bring forth
positivity into this world
If we can each
unselfishly share
a piece of that
then the world will be able
to realign itself
and we will be able to
shift focus
onto what the true nature is
in being a human

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.
