“Richness Within”

so
my steps led me Here
HERE
here

a life
not to be measured
by the world
yet

how could having nothing
feel like everything
and having everything
feel like nothing

starting over again
with everything
integrity
beauty
legacy

and having nothing
money
things
career

comparison destroys
hope
vision
accomplishment

having beautiful kids
a loving heart
a good good Father
and faith
will carry me through
each new step

“Conscience”

there’re some times
when I just feel damaged
I know it’s not true
that’s why I call it a feeling
but man
does it catch me offguard
and cause so many tears

who was I?
who am I?
is who I am caused by who I was?
is who I was covered by who I am?

listen to when I say
these are just moments
but as I was praying through this one
I felt called to write

since God hasn’t blessed me with NO memory
I’m stuck to deal with what comes my way
and this morning
as it was coming my way
I asked someone from my past
what was I like?
because honestly
I don’t remember much good

what comfort it brought me
to hear some good
but at the same time
I still felt damaged
but that’s when I trust
His word to wash my mind
as my tears wash my face

“Dream Chaser”

dreams
they come and go in the night
and seem lost in the day

how does one hold onto their dream?
encouragement
but where does that come from?
other people

but what if
those other people
are only focused on THEIR dreams

well then it stops

and that’s where each person’s left
to support their own dream
and that’s where passion fades
and competition rises
