My Heart Speaks

Show me your face

I want to see you

I want to see your glory

I want to see your power

This very hour

So do it in me

My heart speaks out right now oh God

I need more than just comfort

I need love

I need affection

I need mercy

Forgiveness and hurt my heart speaks

My heart speaks out right now oh God

I life my voice up and i sing to you in vain

My worship is not enough

My heart speaks to You

I long for Your free acceptance

Your genuine love that far that exceeds man’s character

My heart speaks Lord

I give up

I want to die forever

To this world. To myself. I want to die to everything for You.

Deja Vu

Deja vu

Can’t escape this deja vu

Cant make something of myself

I don’t know what i want to do

Much less what i need

I am so lost for words

I have no answers

Ready to give up trying

Tired of shape shifting

Confusion is an epidemic

My brain can’t take all these thoughts

Memories flood my mind

They always are nonstop

I cant forget what i want

Hurting so much, in my mental

My only salvation is physical pain

Blood doesnt have to surface

Who says i have to create scars

Punch my fist so hard

Anger boils insides

Because im so screwed up in my mind

I wish i could be dead

And never come back to this world

Why start over, when it will all be the same

Life sucks and to me life isnt worth anything

Who is actually happy and satisfied?

I cant imagine that contentment in life…

She say its selfish to take my life

And leave all those who love me behind

What are you even talking about

Love is support

Love isnt turning a blind eye

To the mentally unstable

To the mentally hurting

Just because i want something else for my life

Support is hard to come by

Love isn’t a freaking title

Mother or not

Love is not just a word

Married or not

Love is pain

And i dont want to feel it anymore

Praise Turned To Bless

Blessed

No other word can express

The love God has shown

He has bestowed His grace.

His unfailing love.

Where can one find this kind of love?

Nowhere but from Heaven above.

Doors open and doors close,

God has opened so many lately i dont know where to go!

Open doors with endless possibilities,

To serve Him and Him only!

I know He has and will continue to bless

I just pray that i dont let bad times get the best of me

I tend to get down easy

My spirit is set on nothing but pleasing

Everyone around me!

God is the only person i should worry about tho.

God is the only one being i should set my heart on.

Oh how i am blessed.

For God loves me so!

Oh how i am blessed,

God will never let me go!

I am in his hands! I am in his safety!

Praise His name! His is so great!

For he blesses without fail

He comforts without fail!

Good, Bad, and the Ugly

You ask me what i feel

And i can’t tell you now

Because i change my mind, Like the wind

You should know by now

That somehow I, have more than words to say

But they always change

Indecisive plays in games

You ask me what i feel

And i cant tell you now

It is too soon to tell

How far i will get from here

If i continue down this path

I wonder if i will regret

Or maybe not I wont know until then

You ask me what i feel

And i cannot tell you now

I been fighting myself

Trying to learn how

To move on from my mistakes

fighting long and hard All the way

And im too the point Words cant explain

So dont bother asking me!

You ask me how i deal

With all this in my head

I said I dont know how but sometimes i want to be dead

Instead, of alive because Death is quick

But misery is long

And i cant keep going on

Life is way too hard

And when it isnt easy we give up

You ask me what do i feel

Well I don’t really know right now

I just keep making plans and i hope that somehow

That i accomplish them

And get motivation

To change the world

To make it a better place

At least not for them but me

Because we all gotta fight for ourselves

And no one will save you but yourself

You ask me what do i feel

Well i think i know now

This world is unbalanced and it wont balance itself

We gotta experience to be smarter

Stronger And wiser

Consider the factors that decipher

Where we will be in the future

gotta live life fuller

With good, bad, and ugly

I can make this life worth living

with the good bad and ugly

I can make life what i want it to be

With the good bad and ugly

I can change the world without it changing me

I can make my reality

With the Good bad and ugly

Only

I don’t know what to say anymore.

I feel constantly heartbroken and depressed,

Happy and in love,

Then heartbroken and depressed.

Life is full of ups and downs but how is it possible to have more downs than ups?

My valley is getting deeper.

Darker.

More alone.

More distant.

I don’t know how to stop this.

Five people will try to pull me up and make little progress, then one person can come and blow the slightest and i am further than when they started.

I just want to be able to help myself.

I want to be strong. What people need me to be. For myself. For them. For God…

I say i don’t want much in life, but it seems as tho the one thing that i desperately want right now is so much.

Too much in fact.

Too much to deliver.

I will be patient for it because i don’t have a choice, but i fear that this valley i am in is the only thing keeping me from my desire.

I beg for God to relieve me of this hunger.

To strip away my desire for this one thing…

But to no avail.

Is this a test?

Have i been forgotten?

I feel as tho i will never be heard.

The ceiling is so thick that He will never hear me cry.

The altar is a place my pride withholds me, but i go but ever so often to weep and feel You.

Where were You tonight?

A stranger held me close when i felt most alone.

Was she You in disguise?

She said “if you ever need to talk then call me…”

Those words could’ve been metaphorically You.

You say to talk to You, but i have given up and lost hope, for when i do i don’t hear anything but myself…

Please.

Talk to me!

I feel so alone right now and i need You with me 😦

Not even my husband comforts me anymore.

I long for Your presence.

I want peace.

I want Your peace.

Not from man.

I don’t want to go to man anymore for advice and comfort.

Only You.

Strictly You.

Love Is Never Enough

We spend our time working hard just to catch another dollar

We push loved ones to the side just for our names to get larger

Gotta push another person farther

Gotta make a safe distance

Gotta make sure they dont know me Isolation is never enough,

Solitary it really dont get us enough

Time alone; is a cherished time

Because there is no one to look you in the eyes

Or see the many times you cry

No one will ever know you lied

Remember that one time you said you were just fine

But really inside, you were dying to not cry

Trying to force them tears back and lie

Care so much of them and what they think you wear a disguise

Cake it on like makeup and change your looks, you die inside your demise

Make sure no one will ever read your hook

And truly find the meaning of why you say that  its never enough

People in this world become so cold and

nothing can warm them up

Only the feeling of being loved

and cherished

But once that feeling fades,

back to the cold familiar place

I spent all this time tryna be a people pleaser

but it aint do nothing for me but made me

lose some of me

I always cared to much of what others say

Too much of what others think

And i needed long ago to learn my do’s and donts

I needed to find in myself what others wont

And i wish i didnt fall so hard to all these fakes who dont

Care about what i deserve and about my wellbeing

i will sacrifice and be giving so much

Circumstances in every hurt doesnt really matter

Because whats past is past and its never enough

It will never be enough

For you to try and please everyone

all the love, doesnt really last and it aint enough

It aint enough

You can love so hard it cant be mistaken

And it aint enough

You can try to trust all you want

It wont be enough

But in the back your head it will be thoughts you dont want

Because trust isnt real in the world anymore

Stay poppin them pills and rollin it up

Hoping to numb the pain, aint never sobbered up enough

Its not enough

Why stay in this world when the pain is so mucht to bare

Why stay alive for someone you love, when they are hurting with you

Just as much

That cant be reason enough

Free

The ultimate nirvana… freedom.

being free from yourself.

i have been my own worst enemy.

and the thing is, i acknowledged that ages ago,

but i just now truly understood it.

i just now truly seen what i have been doing to myself.

i have just now truly seen the harm i was inflicting upon myself. and i am ending it now.

thats what freedom is.

letting go of what things used to be.

things of the past that caused harm…

thats what freedom is.

i can honestly say, that now, i am free.

free of the chains and baggage, holding me back of my full potential.

i am feeling of good courage, to share who i am with the world.

and TELL THE WORLD about what has changed my life.

my testimony.

my freedom.

 

My Eagle Pendant

image

Around my neck

Hangs freedom

The chain symbolizes the flight

Souring through the air

The chain holds me down

But the chain screams of liberty

A blessing but a curse is

The eagle pendant about me

I dream of zero gravity

Me flying like a bird

Souring like an eagle

With a wingspan that holds the world

Strength in the talons

Freedom in the wings

Warmth in the feathers

Happiness that brings

Wisdom in the crown

Fight in the beak

The eagle pendant about my neck

Will take me to the highest peak

For it inspires a fight in me

To never give up in life

I may be losing the battles now

But I will end the war with a victory

With valor

With endurance

With the eagle pendant about me.

Vital Beginnings

You are caught in the present
because your past is returning.
You try to explain every circumstance
but your throat continues burning.
You tell me you are weary
and your life has the value of death.
But if you jumped into the sea right now,
I know you’d hold your breath.
You settle for every least
and your hope is hard to find.
But if I showed you all you can become.
I know you’d change your mind.
You might have hit rock bottom,
But it’s the perfect place to start.
At least now you can start from scratch
To renew the spirit of your heart.
And if I led you into a garden
That stored every memory your mind proposes
I’m sure you’d notice the thorn bushes
But be oblivious to the roses.
These rules you live by you may not understand
And it penetrates your skin like the deepest vaccine
But you always have to keep in that head of yours
That there’s always a reason nestled in between
This life hits you hard
And you scream of how everything is unfair.
But sometimes getting the wind knocked out of you,
Reminds your lungs of how much they love the taste air. – D.S.G.

My best friend wrote this for me, and its amazing how people can make a difference in your life. And She definitely has made a HUGE impact in me. This poem was exactly what I needed when she gave it to me, and I am so grateful to have her as a best friend. This poem opened my eyes to what I needed to see, and I couldn’t ask for a better friend. To make me happy, make me laugh, make me angry… But yet happy again lol and then at times like this when she makes me cry. I love you Daleah!

Cost of freedom

image

I have risked my life
many a time
Twenty years and counting
have I lost my mind?
Fighting for people who I will never know
In foreign countries I often go
I run and I hide to escape the ammo
Bullet trains fly by my head, I should get low
I see my friend fall, as he was hit in the chest
Violently killed he was shot to death
To fight for a country is like a horror story
Most that have the opportunity
To go back home
Come back an alcoholic
To escape what they had seen and been through
If only america knew
The price of her freedom
America has lost her sight of true patriotism
And lost all form of any nationalism
Unless with these soldiers they have a relation
They truly will never understand the cost of their freedom.
