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

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.


The Journey

Writing is a journey
It takes your mind
through the stratosphere
and completely changes
your perspective
It carries your
inner voice
from within and propels
it out into the world
for all to see
This path becomes
your way of life
and helps you to become
an artist
who creates magic
with words
and sets your stories
on a course
destined to open
the hearts and minds,
to strengthen and inspire
everyone and anyone
willing to invite you
into their lives
So take the first step,
do what you love
and go on
the journey
of a lifetime.

Never Lose Hope

When things in your life
go absolutely wrong,

never lose hope
When despair sets in
and you see no way out,
never lose hope
When the decisions you make
take you further from your goal,
never lose hope
When you try your best
but it isn’t enough,
never lose hope
Your faith in yourself
is unbreakable
You are stronger
than what you appear to be
Your will to overcome challenges
is resilient
You can make it through
all your dark times
if you keep that spark alive
and believe that
all good things will
come to fruition
if you…
never lose hope







My Happy Place

When I write,
I’m in my happy place
A place where I’m returning to
the most purest spot in my soul
Everyday I always return
to the place where the best things are
I may not be the most
talented, creative or eloquent writer
but my passion
to get my words out onto paper
just makes
my love for this craft
stronger
Writing elevates
my mind, body and soul
It takes me to another level
of complete joy
I’m able to go to a place
where I create things
not only with my words
but with
my heart,
my soul,
my true inner voice.

Being Genuine

Being kind and caring
is a gentle art
Display your inner self,
share love from your heart
Showing compassion
is a tremendous virtue
Be there for those in need,
valuable words bring clear view
Giving of yourself
brings out all that you are
Spread love and respect,
in life you’ll go far.

Hold Onto Your Dreams

When life becomes crazy
and your mind is a mess
“Hold onto your dreams”
and hope for the best

If your path becomes unclear
you’ll start to have doubt
“Hold onto your dreams”
for it’ll all work out

It may seem bleak
with no future in sight
“Hold onto your dreams”
everything’ll come to light

Anything is possible
with the right frame of mind
“Hold onto your dreams”
all your desires will be aligned

You’ll achieve your life’s goals
with motivation and flair
“Hold onto your dreams”
inspire hope to everyone, everywhere.

Our “Special” Gift

I always marvel at the fact that we, as writers, can conjure up practically anything we desire with our writing.  We come up with the most creative stories, the most enticing screenplays, the most eloquent poetry and the most humorous prose.

 No two stories, poems, blog posts or screenplays are alike.  Yes they may have the same idea or premise but the way it is executed on page and presented to the reader is very individualistic.  Our inner voice comes through our choice of words and how we arrange them and the reader is fortunate to choose which voice he or she best relates to.aa8

 We really have a gift if you think about it and we choose to share it with others in hopes of educating them, inspiring them, entertaining them and even provoking critical thought among them.  Our passion has no bounds.

 The world, our experiences, our family, our friends and random conversation overheard is our muse.  We get a spark and it gestates in our subconscious mind until it is ready to flow freely onto our computer screens.

AND some of the stuff that we come up with is totally mind-boggling.  As writers, we choose to ignore the plausible and go with what our inner voice is screaming at us to write.  Just imagine if we put limitations on ourselves and our creativity, you know how boring our concepts would be.

 Every day I thank God that I’m able to write something that at least someone, somewhere would enjoy reading.  I might not be the most creative, eloquent or concise writer but I write how I feel and that’s all that truly matters; I think that this is the common thread that is prevalent among all of my fellow peers.

 Writing is our craft, our voice…and our desire to share it with the world regardless of the outcome is admirable don’t you think. aa4

 When I started as a writer, I came across a poem that really spoke to me.  Unfortunately it was written anonymously and I lost my only copy of it.  But I remembered a portion from that particular poem that I took to heart and I want to share it with all of my fellow writing colleagues – all you screenwriters, poets, bloggers, story tellers:

 “Writing is a gift

given to few,

Don’t ever give it up

or you won’t be you”
