WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Please remember only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, JESUS CHRIST and the AMERICAN SOLDIER. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
Been awhile since I posted anything in here. Just an update, I've been writing my poetry as usual; however, I have increased my short story writing as well. I would like to get a collection of stories together and publish it.
The transformation begins with us,
the transformation is what I am becoming, not what I do or did,
it is a process, metamorphosis; the caterpillar and the butterfly.
The unexpected is where it's at,
we don't ask the right questions, mainly because we don't know what to ask, and scared of the pain and hurt that may or may not follow;
Without the pain we will not grow, we can't move forward,
we cannot truly live.
Taking a job for less money and be happy, or take a job for more money and be miserable?
That is the question of the day in America. The sad fact is that the majority of people would pick the more money job to be miserable, just because they think they will have more money. What good is having more money if you are miserable? Usually with a job you hate, usually means you will not be happy with anything to enjoy life. Though on the other hand if you have a job you love, but make less money, you will enjoy life more and others will want to be around you. Yeah, you make less, and most of your paycheck goes to your bills, but oh well, life is too short not to do what you love and not to be happy.
I always though making more would make me happy cause I'd be out of debt, but thats not the case, I want to have a job that makes me feel good inside, even if I am making less. As it may, I took a pay cut recently, I loved what I did, just not the environment I was in; therefore, I changed environments and learned something else for awhile, taking a pay cut. Guess what, I'm happier. I will always have bills, and always have debt; therefore, no worries anymore, enjoying life and doing things I want to do. Having faith, and trust in God to have my back and handle things.
we have pain,
no way around it,
we don't think of the positive, only the negative,
whats on the other side of the pain?
time to think positive,
time to live, not just survive,
healing is a process,
there is no healed,
sorry to burst your bubble,
it's just reality;
therefore, we have a choice,
to take each day that is given to us,
make the best of it,
survive each day,
though make it a goal to Live,
not just Survive.
get over it,
deal with it,
to live again,
I've been ready,
Life has been good,
it's been hard, but I survived;
I'm doing well,
content with what I have, it doesn't mean I don't want more,
it just means I am content right now,
I could die happy right now;
Everything that has happened, happened for a reason,
in the time that it was supposed to happen,
it might not have been the time I would have chosen,
though it was the right time, I suppose.
I am strong,
I am a survivor,
I do not like to quit,
this I do know;
learning to crawl, then walk, and then run,
it's all a process.
I'm ready to continue on this journey,
I am not alone.
you're in my head,
I do not mind that you're in there,
in my head,
now and always
in my head.
I know you're there,
I can hear you,
I know you,
I can feel you,
I just can't see you,
help me remember;
is there a way?
