Landscape…   [POEM]

skies that make the day
seem much more
than what it was not
whenever I’d come outside
to discover how much bigger
my problems were before
and after I had lot
let go of a rainy day
in exchange for a cloud
protected by the shadow
encompassed in a shroud
left for a thought about afar
and an away that I could go
wished upon like stars
that shot to and fro
but never unto me
no matter of the deed
whisked away by challenge
taken apart by thieves
stolen for no other reason
than having to had been left
and not discovered alive,
until a somewhat death
to the chagrin of a valley
that welcomed me within
at the beckon of a zenith
that yelled down for me to win
while a sun sets
on a horizon
that does the very thing
to no surprise yet
for a moment that is
opportune and wet
fluent in a foreign tongue
but readily understood
I’ve welcomed into the possibility
the hope that now is good
so out against the odds
and in the thick of now
the landscape is my chance
a view and scope of how.

Keep Showing Up… [POEM]

I will chase it,
and make it,
take it to the extreme
until I taste it
then I will only believe
that I should keep going
keep showing up
keep pushing,
keep throwing up
stay consistent
stay deliberate
KEEP SHOWING UP
no breaks
no excuses
no time off,
no use for it
I will persevere
I will plan
I will promote
I will prepare
and KEEP SHOWING UP
study and observe
explore and example
the less that I hesitate
the more I can handle
so I will stand there
face adversity
and applause
with acknowledgement,
and with cause
no deviation from the objective
NO PAIN, NO GAIN
is my perspective
and KEEP SHOWING UP
in spite of the chaos
despite the circumstances
regardless of any obstacle
however many chances
that it takes
if I have to bend
or bear
or break
whatever adjustment
that it takes,
I WILL KEEP SHOWING UP
to ensure my success
so that I give myself the opportunity
to do my best
so that I am the reason
that I get more
or do less
and yet, I WILL KEEP SHOWING UP
driven
determined
present
aware
whether it be meant for me,
out of my league,
against all odds,
or unfair
I WILL BE THERE
resident and seen
regardless of precedent
or scene
I will be,
I WILL BE,
there…

Until I have made it
then I will make it more
so that I can share what I know
to those who want to go
leave my lessons
expose my fault
for the purpose of transparency
to those I’ve taught
and being available
to share my way
because I kept showing up,
every day.

If I were as tall as my shadow… [POEM]

Stretching beyond the obstacle
bending to fit the path
contorting throughout my adversity
finding fit, at last

If I were as tall as my shadow

Hidden within the silence
but there I’d surely be
upon just a sliver of ambience
my presence would certain to please

If I were as tall as my shadow

I would reach and I would crawl
I would stand and I would fly
I would have no purpose to fall
I would be expected to survive

If I were as tall as my shadow

The darkness dare not find me
for the light shall set me free
whether or which is to happen
I am sure to cast my being

If I were as tall as my shadow

No monster could be so great
No mountain would be so tall
No monument should stand my way
none of it, not at all…

If I were as tall as my shadow

Smile… [POEM]

Smile
past the hurt
while enduring the process
and during the process
smile
in light of the circumstance
to enlighten the circumstance
as you fight the circumstance
smile
when you feel like it
or if you don’t
know that you can,
dance
and if you want to,
smile
feel in the spirit
allow your smile to be music,
hear it
cheer it
steer it towards happiness
until you can grab it
the kind that you fathomed
smile
as you imagine
a different place
and face it
with a smile
so that you inspire love
and receive
carry it
the smile that helps you
believe
marry it
the idea
that a smile can
change things
be open to sharing it
smile
as you arrange things
sculpt your life into
whatever you want it to be
and breathe
a smile
of peace
within
and let it all begin
or just do it again
in the quiet
or in the wind
but always in the mirror
until you win,
smile.

YOU are going to have to be the one that challenges (pushes) YOU to go above and/or beyond the YOU that YOU are now; Inspiration and/or motivation from outside sources or influence(s) will rarely sustain the effects or results necessary to keep YOU deliberate or diligent towards any goal of the YOU that YOU are working towards if it is not constant, consistent, and continual, but YOU have the best possible reason to get/keep YOU going, YOU!
