Constant

Facing the fright
Every single night
Always in a fight
Battle tested
Never rested
With time invested
War torn shadows
Where are the pros
Enough of the shows
Painstaking regret
Catching many in a net
Absorbed in debt
Filtration for my head
Thoughts diminish instead
My life has since bled
Everyone is connected
Nothing is perfected
Integrity needs to be protected
Moral values in all we do
Should be the first clue
To inspire the best you

Core

There lies a treasure trove
Hidden within a deep cove
Many don’t know it’s their own
Since it has never been shown

We all have traits within
Dreams that seem thin
The answers that lie beneath
Are waiting to become seen

It may take a little time to find
That’s why we expand our mind
Learning the pathway to navigate
What it is that makes us great

Each unique as we never peak
Don’t sell to yourself that you’re weak
Time moves forward and so do we
Obtain the treasure that sets you free

Forward

We’re now looking ahead to the new days
Remembering the past having the good and bad days
No matter what it is that anyone says
We’ve been through a lot of suspense
The situations we’ve faced and rose above
Lead us to the point where we have that strong love
A bond that cannot be broken
Unshaken in the face of all the doubt that gets spoken
Even though our lives will take different paths
The bond is always something that will continue to last
Our stories knitted together since your beginning
We’ve put together quite the journey of winning
Accomplishments were made and lessons learned
Our light that shines is meant to brighten not burn
As you walk into this next chapter I hope I’ve done right by you
So that you can hold your head high and lead her too

Journey

What is hope without love in the brain
What are friends without memories being made
What is truth without learning along the way
What is life without others involved in your day

Many questions and contradictions on the Earth
Just know your story has some worth
Nothing can compare to who you are
Because nobody else has your scars

No matter what, everyone has issues
Pain is part of the process so don’t let it surprise you
With gain there is loss, but it comes at what cost
The healing is always free with the gift from the cross

Let your experiences speak inspiration
Let joy shine bright in all situations
Let your words reflection compassion
Let kindness flow within all your actions

Casual

We peer out the window
See all the other traffic flow
Life flies by like, “where’d it go”
Once a child, now we’re full grown
Responsibilities stack up
How do you see the cup
Half full or half empty
So much to be distracting
Everyone vying for our thoughts
Questioning everything we bought
They call it research invading our privacy
Seems a little off logically
We watched movies about aliens invading
Never thought my life would be probed by agencies
So many thoughts, so little time
We all now walk a fine line
Nobody can make a gesture
Without feeling a ton of pressure
You see the conspiracy
Then everyone says you’re crazy
What if they just pay attention to the reality
A lot of what is considered real is fake
All for entertainment’s sake
When we witness a rift
We should see it as a gift
Because we need those that are different
The same ol’ same isn’t change
A continuous spiral of doing the wrong things
Gatekeepers trying to keep the truth out
People think it’s nonsense since it isn’t their doubt
Round and round we can go with discussion
The plot twists and ideas of separation
So many try to define differences that aren’t there
Making you numb to the feeling of wanting to care
Everyone wants their wealth to multiply
Yet their thoughts of others only want to divide
Command and conquer is one given tactic
It’s sad that many want to embrace that bracket
All these headlines are a miserable racket
Nothing we should hear if we want cheer
Just because we are in a different year
Doesn’t mean we should accept everything
There is still right and wrong in our living
Laws exist as does violence
So why does protection get met with resistance
Wrongful accusations are becoming persistent
Trying to create a dialogue that isn’t coherent
Yet still many believe everything they see
Instead of taking the time to learn correctly
There are many manipulative strategies in marketing
Hooking the minds of individuals unpleasantly
Think how it is you decide
Where have you gone on this ride
Are you comfortable enough not to hide
Can you allow yourself to express what’s on the inside
What is it that has dominated your focus
Are the proper things getting noticed

Memoirs

Thinking over the memoirs
As I look up into the stars
I feel all the old scars
With hope still shining afar

All the tragedy, insanity, and calamity
With each breath there’s intensity
Draining quickly all my energy
What’s left of me is in jeopardy

What this world does is blasphemous
And the ways of it aren’t at all prestigious
The declarations being made aren’t religious
Because most claiming it are instead venomous

The destruction is of our own doing
Hatred instead of love is accruing
That pressure of us lost in our own things
Is what’s keeping us from the grace we should be experiencing

Late Nights

All of these late nights with thoughts in wonder
As the world around me is falling down under
Innocence has been plundered by the acts of sin
When is it that correct progression can begin

The darkness of these late nights consumes actions
People thinking they can pursue any satisfaction
Nobody wants to admit what drives this insanity
Since many make profit off of all of this calamity

Treachery also happens in the daylight
But nothing can deny the sleepless late nights
The mess of stress influencing the rest
As we awake again the next day to try our best

Constant flow of information out in the air
Plenty to antagonize our mind with so much flair
A sensation to race at a pace that is strenuous
Leaving us tired and at times oblivious

We need to pay attention to the focus of our sight
There is much to consider as we lay down at night
The more we know the sadder it all seems to be
People getting fooled into thinking their life has no meaning

People crave control, but when we sleep our body is in a lull
We’re absent of consciousness, yet it still operates in full
With the choices at hand what is guiding the way
What drives us to make the most of our day

Look in the mirror and analyze the mind
Give yourself a little face to face time
Circumstances come and go in various capacities
Are you honestly aware of the truths in our reality

Valentine

So many caught up in how they feel
The fact is you are truly loved and it’s real
Sadly society isn’t keen to that deal
As they’re caught up in other ideals

I’m not going to slander this holiday
But who’s to say love should be celebrated only one day
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a significant other
There are plenty of other things to hold dear amongst eachother

Time doesn’t heal all wounds unfortunately at this time
But giving yourself time allows you more opportunities to shine
All the sorrow and sadness that piles up in one’s thoughts
Doesn’t mean your life’s purpose is forever gone

There is someone out there who needs your kindness
Even if it is just the one you see in the mirror’s reflections
Celebrate the moments and memories that gave you happiness always
Because there are more experiences awaiting your presence in all days

Absorption

We shouldn’t be careless in our actions
Trying to chase down a false satisfaction
Look around you and analyze what’s real
Then proceed to favor the proper deal
Laying in wait never hurts the growth of patience
It’s better to be sure than to regret a mistaken experience
Chin up and eyes ahead looking to the forefront
So you can proceed with confidence through any stunt
Life is full of surprises by now I expect that you know
So don’t be afraid to take what you’ve learned to help you to grow

Suffering in silence

How we handle emotions differs
From one to the next we grow more flexible or stiffer
Some of us hold them in and others let them out
But we all share the same feelings of doubt

How we each grieve changes from one to the next
They say time heals all wounds, but it also continues to wreck
As we age more loss ensues all around to me and you
Many of us still trying to learn what exactly it is we should do

How to handle the situations and experiences each day
So that we can continue to excel in an efficient way
Progressing in our lives rather than remaining still
So that we can reflect a strong courageous will

Buried beneath the surface lies an echo of silence
We all suffer from something even if you may not see it
There’s no need to be ashamed since many others feel the same
After all this life we have isn’t a game
