Note To Myself

image

I sip, I stir, I think out loud, I’m down then up, like a floating cloud

Working hard to make my mother proud

Having always cared for others, like my wife, daughter, sisters, and brothers

Very passionately seeking, for love and success

Sometimes I complain, but forget about how much I’ve been blessed

So I’ll endure through the struggles, trials and the test

Giving myself  a fighting chance, I’ll be quick on my feet and ready to dance

Change

image

Never be afraid to inspire, expect change in life’s desires

When your told as a child, get a job that promises steady pay

To except the rat race, as your day to day

You have a hard time making monumental decisions

Brace yourself, it’s pivotal that you see the vision

What is change, not conforming but taking the detours in life

It all ends with change whether you take a left or a right…

Spoken Word Poem | Different Times

image

Expections the same, In different times

How we have failed to evolve, it blows my mind

Somewere, a kid is being forced to go to college

The explanation we’re given by our parents is, to get get a good job, you have to get the knowledge

But what they don’t tell us is, there are college graduates working at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s & KFC

We live in different times, is what we consistently, fail to see

This is a monumental mistake, that has cost us dearly

As the financial bubble were in, continues growing yearly

When it burst, the harder it will send us crashing down

Like a wingless plane, where headed towards the ground

We need financial education in schools

How to build your own business, you know entrepreneur tools

We have to break a endless cycle, get out of the past, prepare for the future

Do not be programmed by others,  a walking computer

Have your own vision, unlike the walking blind

Realize, we’re living, in different times

I’m Going On A Diet | Spoken Word Poem

I’m going On A Diet

Five words at the start of the year, people often say but never do

We start, but but do we make it through

Im going on a diet

Not just physical, also a metaphorical one

So I will be stopping the things, that should not be done

No more late night snacks, or ice cream cones

No more lying down next to my telephone

I’m going on a diet

Can’t stop now, I have to much to loose

No more waking up and pressing snooze

I’m counting my calories, while cutting back

That means friends and family, who aren’t on the same level im at

I’m going on a diet

For a sense of mind, some piece and quiet

If this is what you need, you should probably try it

Forever 21 | Spoken Word Poem

Forever 21 | Spoken Word Poem

image

There isn’t an age more sought after than this

Some would say forever twenty one,  is as good as it gets

Children spend there childhood chasing this number

While adults get plastic surgery, to try to look younger

I guess forever twenty one is as good as it gets

It’s an age all people are anxious to hit

Why we cant stay this age forever, I really dont get it

The one year that we do have, we’ll just have to live with

I guess no forever twenty one, at least not in this Lifetime

I’m just thinking out loud, these are thoughts in my lost mind
