Strength is not in the numbers
But in how you control the flow
The life patterns you choose
And the pace that you grow
Allow the strength to manifest daily
And mitigate the weakness
To eliminate potential turmoil
To get you where you belong
Stop chasing outward things
And take advantage of the strength within

The fallacy of today is tomorrow will be a better day
Regardless of what the hope will be
There are things we will not see
The motivation of circumstance
Will keep all searching for their chance
But what chances should be taken?

“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth”.
The Humble Approach
Humility brings life reassessment
Which path to choose?
Can it really work as planned?
A humble nature provides the path
Seek the truth by living the truth
The rewards you seek will come
Strive to find the path that fits
And happiness will be your reward
My how the time flies
When you look back and wonder
How did we get here?
When did that happen?
The promise that was promised
Had diminished over time
And left the wonder of why
And can the path be adjusted
To fulfill the destiny of the wonder
That was first wondered by me
Black Lives Matter you say
Is that real or just a cliché?
Cannot believe we have to scream this everyday
Just to be heard, seen, and protected
From the brutal society trying to stamp us out
The daily body counts continue to rise
With no end in sight, we fall
Does not matter if it is a southern thing
Northern thing or western thing
Black lives continue to be extinguished
With no end in sight
So, I ask again, do Black Lives Matter?
When will you step up to make this true?
Simply saying it with no action makes it a hollow cliché
Something woke to say?
Time for action, some type of display
Marching is fine but there cannot be additional delay
Let us put more meaning to Black Lives Matter
Do it today!
The glory we need
Must be maintained
Seeking the knowledge
Becomes a daily challenge
To continue to learn and grow
To make today better than yesterday
Seeking the future glory
The goal remains the same
Make the world a better place
And remember to say the names
(George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery)
Tomorrow is not promised
But the promise of tomorrow leads the way
To ensure every effort today
Is made without delay
Waiting for tomorrow
Shortchanges things you can get done in the present moment
Wasting opportunity and precious time
To find the pot of gold you deserve
Start using your time today
To find your path to a better tomorrow

The poetry of life moves me forward
Towards the things that bring
The happiness I need
To fulfill these huge dreams that I dream
Reaching out to help the next man
Create and work towards a plan
That makes the world a better place
And one that stands to improve your stake in the race
Let the poetry of life flow
And discover the glow
Of the poetic peace of living the life designed for you

The poet knows
The time and place to let the words flow
To get the point across
To those who read the words composed
Waxing a poetic and majestic flow
Is the goal the wordsmith is looking for
How we get there is not the important point
Putting the words together
That makes you think, smile and act
Now, that’s the joint!
“Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history”.
Be careful what you dream
Because sometimes dreams do come true
So, what’s the problem you may ask?
The dream you dream may in fact not be for you
Life provides opportunities for you to reach your goals
The key to this process is to know the correct path to follow
Look beyond tomorrow
Search for the things you need
Use this knowledge and your dreams to succeed
