Pulse

A thread is all you need to make a pattern
So when times are tough stick with those who matter
Don’t try to go outside the lines
Keep holding tight to what’s right on the inside

There is always hope in tomorrow
For it begins a new day to move away from your sorrow
Letting go sometimes is the hardest thing
Especially if the one who hurts you the most is wearing a ring

Struggle is part of any process
The mountains and valleys help create progress
Without a test you never have a chance to build
So stick with this life and exercise your will

Decades

Three vastly different journeys
Each life is something truly unique
Two approaching and one beginning
The third and fourth with plenty of planning

One has started his third set
The other approaching that same set
Myself, I’m ending the era of the twenties
Approaching the years that will now begin with a three

My two oldest nephews, one who is twenty the other eighteen
So close in age, but experiencing vastly different scenes
As the one begins this next set of ten, we’ll see if he truly is a gentlemen
The other nearing that realm of adulthood has a lot of choices waiting ahead

Three lives in different significant states
All with sights on the future ahead to be great
We all have a link to which we can relate
However the way we carry ourselves differs on this date

Each of us encountering a difference in circumstance
With our lives having significantly different plans
Everyone experiences this with those they hold dear
As you hope the best for them as well as yourself each and every year

They say these years are still considered young
However what ultimately develops before it’s all said and done
Comes from these years that society tries to paint are for fun
Importance of improving our knowledge should be at the forefront to obtain further wisdom

The lives ahead for each of us
Need to be lived in a way that’s a plus
The negativity all around is more than enough
We three will hopefully continue to rise above

Chapter

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

Stuck

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

Pressure

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

Sunset

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectations yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

Held to a higher standard it’s clear
We get caught up unconsciously in fear
Not quite sure which way to steer
When we have yet to find our appropriate gear

If the end is near, when will it stop
This bubble you’ve built is about to pop
My faith isn’t something that’ll drop
But your view is lacking growth, it has flopped

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectations yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

Lingering issues of feelings from the past
Long last the facts of success and contrast
I’ve never ventured into the aura of relapse
Except when it came to the thought of my loves collapse

Such painful addictions catch the unsuspecting
Little do they know that once would turn into many
Our culture caught up in the realm of judging
When not one gavel should hit since they’re not perfecting

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectations yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

These grudges constantly seen are atrocious
People waving their hands around like it’s hocus pocus
Getting their encouragement from the wrong daily doses
I wonder if they’re aware that they’ve been caught in hypnosis

Subliminal messages are now constantly identified
No longer can the secret societies continue to hide
Conspiracy has long been viewed as a negative
When at times it has exposed an actual perspective

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectation yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

Time to look forward so that we can forget any chance of maintaining regret

Interstate

Let me take a moment to teach
Women aren’t meant for you to leech
It doesn’t matter your fantasy
Nobody’s taking responsibility

These dudes unaware of how to stop
They want to blame the cops or their Moms and Pops
Indulged in their latest addiction
With a misuse of various definitions

Our government can’t even interpret its own constitution

Make a stand, hold some hands
Lead people out of the despicable plans
So many on auto-follow
They forget what it’s like not to be hollow

Get filled with knowledge and emotion
Mindless drones stirring up all this commotion
Hard to stop what you can’t see
So open your eyes to all that’s threatening

If you’re free then you can hear the pleas
Many crying out to simply be released
Held against their will
Forced to be silent and still

The media leading you astray
Harassment hasn’t gone away
Problems all around, slavery is here
No ethnic specificity, just to be clear

They’ll take anyone who has the look
Just to further fill their pocket books
If you feel you aren’t effected
Then I guess you have no connections

Treat others how you want to be treated
Don’t leave them behind broken and beaten
Regardless if they’re a friend or stranger
Nobody should have to endure these dangers

Distraction is the simplest form of deterrent
Hoping you won’t realize the lies is the difference
Find a way to acquire resolve
Since many of these problems need to be solved

Action

An imagination is a powerful thing
So many have dreams they’re replicating
Others lay still in defeat
Left waiting patiently to do something

In this land of opportunity
What is it that we mostly see
Is it success or failure
So much nonsense to endure

Many choices lead to many pathways
Which is it you’re choosing today
One can lead to happiness
The other to sadness
Not knowing which, is the delayed progress
Pondering decisions can leave one left wishin’

Many reminders of only living once
Many times people get caught up in stunts
The key is not to be afraid
Own up to the choices you ultimately make
Considering with each day, there can be change

Learning is the catalyst
Knowledge needs to be the protagonist
You are the essence
So don’t be afraid to make a difference

Time Warp

They awake to find a change
Was it something of fate or destiny
Left waiting, their goal is in range
Never give up building a legacy

You dream, wish, and hope
That you reach your goals
Instead of slipping down a treacherous slope
But without hard work, that vision may fold

Motivation and dedication need to arise in this nation
Away from the greed and explicitly placed aggravation
When did this culture formulate such sadistic views
Operated by the public or just following what the media wants you to do

Social networking can be just fine
But many have lost themselves, making it their shrine
In due time many will soon whine
Wondering where the time went as it quickly passes them by

Look at your loved ones in this moment
Make your memories something that was chosen
Appreciate that which you take for granted
Because it can be taken away at any given second

Contributions

It’s a necessary situation
To ponder your contributions
Soliciting selfishness or selfless inclusion
There are varying degrees of personal infusions

What makes you unique
When did you reach your peak
Are you rough edged or smooth and sleek

Each experiment has a hypothesis
Are your priorities in order or do you lack confidence
Too many these days caught up in belligerence
So their special qualities aren’t truly be experienced

Time and time again you hear about interventions
Trying to persuade someone to leave an addiction
All that time wasted within the distractions
Leaves one wondering what could’ve happened

The time it takes to break
Is minuscule, given all the hate
Many try to escape
But running away doesn’t provide positive change

So what grinds your gears
Taking action could help prevent fear
If not this year, then when
Because your effort should always reflect one-hundred percent
