Think Twice.

Reel me into a world-wind..

It’ll only be fuel to accompany stubborn shifts that only I can control.

Even in your lighthouse,….

schemes grip my conscience but now I am free……

I can hear my own voice of escape……..shouting at me,…but no one hears, sees, or stops.

Not silence again.

Not even ghosts can shatter old memories with a blank stare, but remorse is like a rollercoaster.

..Asking me to go for a disposable thrill every second it’s about that time to strike a nerve.

Sentencing me to uncover all that bending trees do not whisper, no one heard the tree fall anyway.

Shouts fade with the wind but the concrete cracked then everyone looked for an answer….

Your 2 cents could’ve made me rich, but today thinking is left for the philosophers.

What is simple is too simple.

Understatements taken to heart, the unraveling is left…..

Wondering is a friend who pays me no mind.

Define alone, although accuracy will reach for your ancestors answers to leave you looking for a moral to the story.

Let history shake up the future, picture the present.

Take notice.

Seconds carry the weight of eternity…..

Moments of dim light cast a shadow.

Hands get worn and weary of doing.

Some stories only tell half truth with no twist plot….

Each path…encounters no interruptions when destiny unfolds.

Common Stories

She said: Step up to the plate.
He said:Naw I’m straight,
His actions:I’m too busy dishing out bait….
Narrarator: Well, the bait part wasn’t actually said …but that’s what silence told her cringing ears.
She said: Tears weld up…… don’t leave me here alone with a cold heart.
A wise person said:Don’t take the bait……..

Respectively I say….

Perspective is something that can only be given when a mind is thinking though objectives and subjections that sometimes can take someone under or through another idea. So what is expected for brainstorming, ceiling breaking ideas and light shining throughout the medulla oblongata. …..

….B/c the idea is that perspective is rooted in what can be seen, internally.


Working On Me.

I raise my standards up to learn from the mistakes I’ve made.

Even though I’m staying confident with not knowing what about myself that I can change.

Sometimes I laugh at the future while staying positive.

Progression is my defense so nothing is gonna stop me.

Questions embark my mind like ‘how can I stay honest?’

Lies try to tear down my pathway to success.

The lies be sayin ____”put your name here”____you can’t follow your dreams because you’re a mess.”

I tell myself that my mess is only temporary.

My new beginning will not tarry.

So I don’t have to worry….about what I haven’t done yet.

All I know is Ima execute my next move until I reach my best.

Right now I’m too busy tryna pass this next test.

I pray God got me, especially when I’m a hot mess.

I am continually working on me while my mind is at ease.

I imagine me……becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be.

I have the right to say, ‘I embrace today’ despite the unknowns of what life has to offer tomorrow.

If you talk to me about the future I’ll tell you that, I’m blessed.

Keeping it SIMPLE is Key…

Simplicity is an art. I’m a simple person, this is the thought I tell myself when I’m remembering life is super complicated at times.

Even when I breakdown 1+1=2 somehow my intelligence is testing out my ability and questioning my answer. I’m not a mathematician but I do know second guessing is a common denominator that most successful people break the habit of doing. Come’ on there’s only on one way to solve this math problem.

Simple people are good friends. Think about it… Even if your simple friends are wrong, at least you can gravitate towards the true facts. Because what they told you makes perfect sense why you won’t be taking their advice.

Most fundamental books are simple to read but history books is a totally different story.

Even nature appreciates simplicity. That’s why plants/flowers stick to the basics to grow….water,sunlight and dirt. I can imagine a cactus saying don’t give me artificial light, the sun from the sky will do just fine.

If simplicity had a voice it’d prolly only say……”I am easy going”…with no final exhausted speech of definition to explain why. Simplicity would prolly talk in riddles but would give perfect clues that everybody could figure out. The tone of simplicity’s voice would be soothing like a dad putting his newborn baby to sleep for the first time after the child throws a tantrum.

Everybody hates Chris???Somehow everybody love simplicity!

What all does it take for a person to be a simple thinker? Maybe to look at what your definition of simplicity mean. I am more simple when I am not asking myself why me…. Accepting my present self is key.

If I could take simplicity and make it mine, I’d put it in my pocket for rainy days so that I could always find purpose in the midst of storms of life.

Give it all you’ve got!

Being consistent has barriers. Life has barriers. Especially when you are reaching to be consistent, at all costs.
