Forgiveness

hands

Why is forgiveness so hard to give? When without forgiveness we could not live. I guess for us, to set pride aside Is as hard as swimming against the tide But without forgiveness, the Devil wins For that is one step headed toward sin Even if the sin against us was wrong OUR sins, that are forgiven, go on and on . . .

Biopoem

multicultural

Multicultural! It has been said that my community is made up of only one type of people, But in fact, many different types of people live in my area. This is what makes my community multicultural! It has also been said that because of this, a lot of bad action goes around, False, bad action goes around everywhere, because in every race, religion, and culture, there are good and bad people . . .

Love

Is Love D E A D ? It all started with fruit, You know the story of Adam and Eve? But I believe something else was born underneath that tree, L-O-V-E I believe in fairy tales; and love at first sight . . .

Malvern

Malvern is accepting Not accepting enough to abide by the laws of thieves As they drown in shallow morals Not accepting enough to tolerate the shouts of bullets as they rush through cold hollows of metal guns Not accepting enough to withstand being ridiculed by those blinded with ignorance and brainwashed by media But accepting enough to respect an array of music; Whether it be the intricate rhymes and distinct beats ringing in rap To the catchy repeated lyrics in pop Accepting enough to savour the unique tastes hidden within spoonfuls of various dishes originating from different countries Accepting like the warmth resonating from a melting pot As different races and cultures blend together to create one community; My community The community that is accepting Malvern  . . .

Traveling Man

The essence of my soul travels many constellations Seeking many destinations Traveling eternally on planes my brain cannot comprehend Seen worlds in which my eyes will never visualize Experienced life in ways my brain has no hope of recollecting The essence of my soul has spoken the languages That my tongue could not even whisper From voices my ears cannot pick up In dialects my mind couldn’t begin to translate Yet my soul always understood The essence of my soul is a greater being than my physical self A warrior whose strength cannot be measured in the physical sense A sage whose wisdom transcends eternity An angel whose light blinds the eye A demon residing in the darkest crevices of the heart The essence of my soul Travels outside of time as I travel within it in perfect unison And millennium after I’m reclaimed by this earth The essence of my soul remains the traveling man Coasting the universe  . . .

Bio Poem

I am from steak marinated for days tender and juicy grilled through all the way. I am from war where family crests were worn and a great Scottish general who lives no more. I am from snow and wind shields with ice 3 inches thick and 30 below nights . . .

Advice

Why be someone else When there’s no better person at being you than yourself Why change yourself for other peoples’ sake When you’ll be nothing more than a fake Why would you stress over your imperfections When there is no such thing as perfection Why cry about the crude statements When you’re in charge of your own development Why be a reproduction When you could be limited edition Why turn into someone new When many will love you for being you  . . .

Do Not Take Criticism Too Far

I have a tendency, to take things too seriously I get hot-headed easily; any small spark can set me off like a bomb. I over think every little thing and my mind inflates with worry. The sharp tongues of mean-spirited people pierce through my heart with ease . . .

Your Heart Is Always True…

heart-hand

Don’t think with your heart. Though your heart is powerful, it does not think for itself. Don’t listen to your heart. For all you will hear is a dull muffled rhythm. Don’t trust your heart. When your heart is overwhelmed with things, it will surely fail on you . . .
