Moving On

What hurts about moving on
is knowing that what you
once had is now gone. Now,
thoughts don’t skip a beat,
just like a record stuck on
repeat. Flashes of the past
dash by on the other side
of our eyes. Moving on is
like skipping your favorite
song: it just feels wrong.
Pain becomes strength.
Misery becomes history.
Doubt becomes acceptance.
Moving on is going forward.
Staying back is waiting for
life to attack. Don’t be a
victim to a life you’re given.

Father Time

Don’t hit fast-forward.
Don’t press rewind.
Press play and watch
memories from the past
come to life. Take it
slow and pay attention
to the days that pass by
most of our closed eyes.
Look too far and miss
today. Don’t look at all
as our doubts grow tall.
Don’t rush. In our lives,
things may come and go,
yet we will come to learn
there is more to know.
Father time has his hands
full with grains of sand
flowing to his sandals.
Only he knows when
his palms are empty.
Only we can know that
this life is a blessing.





The Willing

Are you willing to fight
and risk your own life?
Is your will strong enough
when times become tough?
Are you willing to love
those who’ve hurt you?
Are you willing to risk
losing your ego to find
the meaning of your life?
Are you willing to fail
when hate might prevail?
Okay, now ask yourself:
Am I willing? Am I
worthy?
Before you think,
know you are. Don’t worry.



Without a Doubt

Without a doubt,
I love you.
I love the way you are.
Without a doubt,
you help the sun
come out.
I love the way
you are. Pretty
and witty.
I love that.
Without a doubt,
you make me
crazy – just crazy.
You make me
feel amazing.
Without a doubt,
you are my love.
You brighten
my day. I say,
without a doubt,
I love the way
you are. You
should know
my love for you
will always grow.
