There are times when you have plans
Wondering if what you’re thinking can be executed by your hands
Those thoughts of doubt and excitement sway this way and that
Then comes along a sign that signifies you need to step up to bat

When life throws you curves you need to remain on a straight pathway
Distraction looms off in the peripherals with the doubts of yesterday
Time only moves in one direction, so should your progress as it gets tested
Having lofty goals or high expectations of yourself isn’t necessarily negative

You just have to know how to handle the disappointments
Failure is bound to happen at a given interval, but that’s relevance
All aspects of the journey are of utmost importance
You just have to be willing to make the adjustments

Don’t hesitate to turn what’s sad to glad
Being able to always decipher the good from the bad
Because that which makes you mad isn’t viable
And not everyone close to you is someone reliable

Those closest can tend to be the biggest deterrents
And you don’t ever want to truly be selfish
But sometimes you need some alone time to improve your methods
When that time comes execute at every given second

Analyze all of the relationships
All of the hypocrites
All of the intelligence
And all of the significance

Which is greater your fun or passion
Your greed or compassion
Your pleasure or progress
Your money or success

Whatever you think should come next
Don’t hesitate to put your efforts to the test
Allow yourself a chance to fulfill the plan
Because if not for you it may never have the legs to stand


Where has it all gone
We went from playpens to swing sets
Now technology has spawned
With it seems the only way to now connect

Face to Face now involves a medium
No longer a day to day occurrence
Many prefer text or a camera
It seems another person has become a deterrent

There use to be activities out at recess
Now many just sit around on their tablets
The kids formulate the next generation
But the parents seem to have forfeited their persuasion

A tricky situation has begun
We’re in a fast paced society
But technology has been tuned for fun
Leaving advancement as a discrepancy

More addictions have sprouted up
More distractions have made it tough
More problems have since developed
With humanity further lacking love


Some people just always have to be right
It’s what makes them feel alive
Some people just always have to be right
It’s what makes them feel accomplished in life

I don’t understand despite facts and their contradictions
They still feel the need to argue and have negative interaction
Doesn’t matter how much they sway
They still need to feel their spectrum is correct at the end of the day

Not sure what makes them tick
To me their mind seems sick
I’m not here to pass judgment
It’s just irritating to deal with them

Some people just like to hear themselves talk
Trying to impose their will on your personal walk
Doesn’t make sense to hear their plea
When they have experienced an entirely different journey

Nobody on this earth is identical
Respect and appreciate different people
If you feel the need to always be right
There may be a need to analyze your own life


Grace fills the room each time you walk in
There isn’t another place I think I would’ve rather been
Each time I lay my eyes on you, time seems to rest
The moments and memories with you represent the best

I’ve been tested and tried, but each time you’re the one that shines
It wasn’t always easy to turn away from the ideas that were mine
However, with you… there is never a regret that enters my mind
You deserve the best from me at all times

You’ve made me a better man
You’ve saved me from the quicksand
When I’m lost, you’re always there to be found
With you, I’m never imprisoned by doubts

Our relationship isn’t something that is new
And even though times change, I’ll always love you


Caught up in a web of choices
Listening to the variety of voices
What is it that should be done next
Do they really know that step will be overly complex

Thoughts are generally favorable
While the actuality is far from stable
The journey is the majority of the battle
Deciding the route shouldn’t leave you rattled

Moving forward is the only thing time allows
If you remain stagnant, then opportunity won’t follow
If you are unsure of the future
Occupy yourself so you don’t succumb to doubtful tortures

Even with all the advice only you can tell if you’re ready
The amounts of changes in certain things are plenty
Only you can determine if you’re capable of understanding
Since the facts lie within what it is you’re experiencing

Don’t take life lightly
Ramifications are heavy
With every action there is a reaction
And with every pro a con

Choose wisely on when you’ll begin your next chapter

Family Values

Remember the times when it was about others
All these new times with new views of selfish behaviors
Long forgotten the value of accomplishment for more than self
Focused on careers while familial gains are put on the shelf

Everyone is looking to get ahead
While the notion of family is slowly becoming dead
Many running away from responsibility
Preventing the others from truly reaching prosperity

Far too many are too lazy to work through issues
Instead they pack up, head out, and try to continue
“If it isn’t easy, it isn’t worth it” seems to be the new slogan
Lots of people being afraid of a little commotion

People advocate choice only when it suits them
Despite improper choices putting them in their troublesome predicament
What about the choice of others you effect
Why can’t they have a say in what it is you do next

Too many turn and run away
Too many only hope for themselves today
Family is an important privilege
Nobody has the right to dismantle it


Many are confused this time of year
The end of the calendar should bring forth cheer
What’s turned into complexity time and time again
Ignores the simplistic message that delivers us from sin

What if you had your celebration stolen
How would you react if others got the attention
There are all kinds of raw emotion
With which have interrupted the true relation

It isn’t about gifts plural or money spent
It’s about a gift that allows us to experience Heaven
What many people hope and dream
Has lost touch with what reality means
Christmas isn’t Santa or decorative trees, but the facts of the nativity

Keep Christ in Christmas because He loves
You wouldn’t want anyone to “X” you out, especially the One up above


Caught in the middle of a stressful situation
Being brought into the fold is never easy
One side needs support and the other information
We humans are a complicated species

Hard to pick and choose who to lose
When your obligation to each side is crucial
There’s never a time when stress is good news
However it is important to always remain truthful

One side a brother the other an uncle
Lives changing dependant on the time
Both family members of course are special
Their situations both weighing heavy on the mind

What to do or when to do it
Both questions that require careful consideration
When the going gets tough, you never quit
So forward I go with the knowledge of each side’s confidence


Everyone around me with their life changin’
I look in the mirror only to find similar situations
Nothing new just a stagnant race
While others continue to put smiles on their face

People getting married and having babies
Others finding good careers or graduating
I remember the days where it seemed ok
The ones where I was progressing each day

I’ve been the centerpiece to a lot of discussion
Helping people with a bit of encouragement
They needed advice so they didn’t think twice
About the doubt that could sometimes cloud their minds

I know that with each day I’m blessed
With all the successes and happiness I’ve witnessed
Just seems that it all has been lost in time
As I sit here continuing to analyze

Where has it all gone
Where in the cycle do I hop back on
This adventure never ceases to amaze
What will tomorrow do to bring change


This year slips through my fingertips
With regret of what I should do growing thick
Time is highly effective on ones perspective
Time is an enemy that always wins

The repetition involved waking up each day
What is it that you do to stay sane
Another moment has passed
And another memory cemented fast

It’s easy to get caught up in thought
Distraction though can leave one distraught
Looking for the future in the past
Isn’t something that’s proven to be steadfast

The matters of the heart being untapped
With the matters of the mind keeping me trapped
Each time the clock ticks I could collapse
Knowing that there is plenty to do in order to fill the gaps
