There’s always a chance

That you’ll learn something
That it means nothing
That it could possibly change everything

Let the heavens sing
Let the phones ring
Let the changes of love begin happening

Open your eyes to what the day brings
Have the purpose of life flow like a spring
Never forget that kindness is always worth practicing

Endure

Trying to hide
The fallen pride
Identity subsides
Anger collides
Then depression divides
Love can provide
An outlet to guide
So never give in to suicide

Standard

The beauty you hold is the standard
That will always be my answer
Whatever makeup you decide or flow of the hair
All the other shapes, sizes, and styles can’t compare

You’re the one I hold dear
When we first started, to year after year
In case I haven’t made it clear
I want to be your love that’s always near

The truth is I want to protect and hold you close
I’m intrigued by the person you are beyond the clothes
I want to support your endeavors and be a part of your adventure
Keeping you encouraged and uplifted because you’re my treasure

To me it isn’t about your image because I see grace
The kindness you hold in your heart reflected by the smile on your face
Actions speak louder than words, so let me be your resting place
I’ll always prove that you’re safest within my embrace

There’s nothing we can’t do
You’re the one for me, I always knew
Each time you ask how you look
Again, there’s no one as gorgeous all around in my book

Choice

They say you can’t pick your family
But, my parents picked me
There is truth to the saying
Since I didn’t have a say in the things

Adopted and introduced to two new siblings
It’s been awhile now, the numbers are adding
Family for the most part isn’t chosen
Until you’re ready to get your own in motion

Friends are what most of us actually get to pick
With an eye to promote time in those relationships
When it comes to starting that next chapter
Commitment and loyalty are what we’re after

The notion of giving up shouldn’t exist
Being there throughout needs to be the promise
Just like the support of a family or a friend
Enhance the best you’ve ever had choosing to give your all till the end

Segmented

A story that many seek
As they go about their week
Trying to be strong, but in reality are weak

Seeking a pleasurable treat
From each individual they tend to meet
Yet don’t treat them how they want to be treated, but like meat

A person is still a human, we’re in the same crowd
Somehow the view of each has been different aloud
When we all have the right to freedom or should be allowed

No matter the country or the view
Diversities make things unique in all we do
Respect, kindness, and discipline in this era sure are due

Intellect and wisdom are different machines
Try to change up the daily lifestyle, try a new scene
Learn through experiences, rather than just by what may be seen

Effect

Half a planet away
You cheer me up each day
To think in the past
We never would’ve crossed paths
Now with the connectivity
I’ve gotten to experience your blessing
Despite the distractions and tragedies
Technologies have still been exciting
A gentle personality, innocent in a way
Greatness blooms within, this I will say
A smile that truly impacts my heart
No matter the miles we are apart

“Eternal”

This song was created for entry into a celebration contest hosted by the producer Dansonn who reached the 100K subscriber milestone on his Youtube channel. This track will also be part of a later album project. We had to enter via Youtube, so I figured I’d post that form of media for those of you who may want something visual to see while you listen. Thanks for your time!

Eternal

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

It isn’t simple to navigate life’s adventure
Constantly living under pressure
So, many fall in line with certain pleasures

The definitions get skewed as many don’t know what to do

Love and marriage, commitments fallen through
Humanity and race, both of which fit the same shoe
However, nobody pays attention to what they once knew
As hatred and disdain seem to continue

You may ask yourself what exactly is it I should do
Not I as in me, but I as in you

The views of today haven’t been forever
They also don’t belong to the one most clever
For them to last or even become has been a tragedy
One that deserves to see its ending

You can’t ignore it, you seek a love that never ceases
Despite relationships having left you in pieces
The simplest answer to it all though is Jesus

2nd Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

Open your eyes, good and evil have been around
Doesn’t peace seem like a pleasant sound
Seek grace before you enter the ground
You only live once, has your life been found

The risks we take, the lives we make
Nothing ever goes as planned and isn’t the same
We try to create and formulate
All of standards around us that advance our state

I’m talkin’ mental and physical, not geographical
We’re so focused on ourselves instead of the critical
The information we consume needs to be biblical

We can’t make the same mistakes as yesterday
It’s important to learn consistency in this day and age
So many exclaim they want to see change
Then they need to step up and help turn the page

No excuses, don’t hide away or be shy
Christ didn’t sacrifice and rise again to watch us stand by

Closing:
You want love, forever
You want life, forever
You know the answer

This track was created
This community was created
Creation has been around forever

God Bless

Signify

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

The Patient

There’s a girl I’ve never physically met
But one that I’ll never soon forget
She’s in a battle many have faced
All the while maintaining her positive grace

The announcement came and while many are afraid
She chose to accept the circumstance, instead of fear being displayed
Her priority seems to reverberate that which is happy
Even when a disease is attempting to consume her body

Some treatments have come and gone with more ahead
She has lost her hair, but she doesn’t care
Instead of being a prisoner and laying in bed
She maintains her freedom and continues to perpetuate her gentle flair

She is optimistic and knows she’ll have victory
There’s been no signs indicating anything that would be contradictory
Instead of changing, she’s remained the same making new friends
Helping them get through this similar difficult circumstance

There is still a long road ahead before she’s in the clear
Many of us continue to live on year by year
Trying to avoid situations like this that bring so much fear
But the reality is it’s affected the majority of our peers

Despite her circumstance she continues to make her friends grin
Releasing such kindness and pleasantness from within
A truly special young lady that contains a great deal of beauty
I’m hopeful that those you may know can also approach their adversities positively
