"Peace begins with a smile" -Mother Teresa

Quote A Day

The great Mother Teresa was a very quotable kind of lady. As a matter of fact, it seemed like God blessed her with the gift of words, the ability to fight off an army of hate just by opening her mouth to speak a few thoughts of love. I suppose that is where this all begins. You must understand her talent, the beauty of her gift, and the divinity of it all. To not love Mother Teresa is like a cardinal sin, but I suppose it it possible. So if you are reading this and think that way maybe you should understand what she is to me, verse to the world.
Everyone knows her story, so I wont go into it, but her story in my life is a bit different. In my life, she kinda doesn't really well exist. Of course she did and was an amazing woman, with a lot to share and cared about the well being of everyone but her words her works, where never directly spoken to me. So she is like a fairy, like an angel. And I believe in her, the same way I believe in God. I don't hold her that high, she isn't even a close second. However they are both beings that guide me, and they happened to be good friends. A quote from Mother Teresa was my come to Jesus moment, and every time I read her words, I have a come to Jesus moment, you might not, but we aint talking about you. To me she was superhuman, the things she did on this earth were not possible without the lord. She is proof in my eyes that Jesus is real., and that somebody really does love me.

Now that we got all that out of the way, the next quote from her won't haver to have such a long intro.

"Peace begins with a smile", but what the heck does that mean. For that matter what is peace in her eyes. Perhaps what she meant was that peace begins with a kind gesture, a smile not only with your mouth but with your heart. Maybe the way to solve the pains and hurt of the world is hidden in a smile. There are many ways to smile, you can smile with your eyes, your mouth of course, and a deeper way, that requires more thought, a smile with your heart. I believe she wanted us to smile with our hearts.
A smile isn't suppose to be a sneaky move, a dishonest display, but a kind way to say hello, or that you understand, or you love the person, or you understand. When you smile mean it, don't smile because you have nothing else to do. Don't abuse the power of a smile to hurt someone. Don't smile because someone tells you to, if they don't have a camera in front of you to capture the moment, you are only pretending to be happy. They say you only get what you give. Walk around pissed off and everyone and everything will piss you off any more. Yet a smile is contagious, a smile will warm a heart.
If a situation comes down to understand each other's point. Not giving in or giving up but simply listening and understanding where the other person is coming from. Facing their culture, their ideas with open eyes and an open heart. Smile. That smile regardless if you are still confused, means you are trying to understand. Or you don't really understand right now, it means you are gonna one day understand. Don't look a someone with wondering eyes or talk about someone because you don't understand the way they think, or the way they are. Just smile, and pray for understanding.
I think that is what she meant, let your heart smile. Don't grow bitter because you are confused or don't understand where the person is coming from. Take their words, their views in consideration. Review it more, talk to them about what how it feels to be them, put yourself in their shoes. Wouldn't you want someone to smell and show a little acceptance to you? The more we accept the differences between us will only make us stronger. Don't buy into the idea that if you believe in the right for someone to be love, believe or think differently then you do, that somehow your own values dimmish.
Who you are is who you are, you can't change you. You can only make you better. And while I am telling you to be kind to people who are different that you, I don't mean abandon your own differences. Simply accept theirs.

Art of Breath


Yeaa my Flow is generated from thoughts that are music plated ; in my head i see the words gather up as i illustrate it ; spiitin on this mic making sure I keep it hydrated ; & with that my daughter is born ; right here in lyrical form ; so calm in beauty like balloons in the sky ; & I promise as long as I breath I'll keep my daughter alive ; with every inch of my body & every ounce of my soul ; i'll never let my passion burn out in deaths cold ~

I Remember

I See

I remember the first time
We ever spoke
It was the most special day i of my life
Just to talk to you
Turned me into jelly
I started to melt right away
My heart was pounding
My hands were shaking
I could barely breathe
We got along so well
I could tell you anything
I could trust you
You understood me
In a way no one else ever has
You never put me down
Or make me feel like I don't count
You never try to change me
You take me for who I am
Even with me running to you
You never hurt me
I try not to ask to much
If you can talk
Or send me comments
Which i love, So I can read them when your not here
Or send me messages
I don't try to make demands
I would never want you to feel like your being
Pushed into anything
I just want the best for you
I want you to be happy
I want you in my life , until I draw my l ast breath
I never had love
Never knew love
Until the day I met you
The longer I know you
The more I love you
You always listen
Don't put me down
Always find time for me
Even when your busy
You don't demand
You have showed me real love
Sometimes I come on Strong
I say and do things I shouldn't
But I don't mean them
Im not asking for marriage
Im not asking for a ring
Im not asking for a house
Im not asking forvows or commitments
Im not asking anything of you
That you do not want yourself
But I am happy with you
I will never walk away
I will take each step with you
I will love you like no other ever has
You won't find me leaving you
I'll be with you to the end
Even when I draw my last breath
You will be with me. I will have your heart
As you have mine
As long as I have you in my life
We stay the way we are
Loving and caring for one another
I can do anything
I can be anything
Without you in my life
I would have nothing leftTo live for.

Love you Baby Angle

Misc Poems

shove the plugs into my skull
music saturates my brain
the beat throbbing in my mind
permeating my thoughts
vibrating my dreams
making them real

Author's Notes/Comments: 

When I'm angry I listen to loud music in order to calm down. Last night I was in such a situation, and was also inspired to write this. Short, but passionate.

Rose Garden

Red bird sitting on a window sill
Red candle blowing in the dark
Res roses on table set for two
Red wine to sip slowly
Red nightie, for my sexy love
Red satin sheet's to lay on
Red ribbon in my hair
Red lipstick to kiss your lips
Red fingernail polish on my nails
So I can run my fingers down your spine
Red car so we can race along
Red flames in our passion
Red glow all around
So we can see our love for one another
Red hot desire for a wild passionate night.
Red hot daddy ready to go
Red hot mama sets daddy's soul on fire.

Timeless Valentine

Rose Garden

I love you.......I love you........
But nothing beats those simple three words
I tried to write all that I feel
Poems, lyrics, compositions too.....

I tried to use, but all in vain.......
Bombasic words and colorful phrase......
Through words I tried to convey.........
There's so much I wanna say..........

Saying "Always Be My Valentine".
So I write this poem , and I'll hang my sign,
As we laugh at time from day to day.
Your loving heart turns like to play.

I know I'll never stop loving you
De spite the things that we go through
But with you along, I can't complain
Getting older can be a pain

Still a smile from you, and I'm in the groove...
My joints all ache, I can hardly move
When I pass a mirrow, it can make me gag
Time shifts my body, I start to say,

Just seeing you sets me aglow
Though decades come and go,
One thing is surely true, my dear,
As time goes from years to years

When I pass the mirrow and I see You
Im more in love with you, then ever before
I start to smile and it grows and grows
Because my love your still my love, after all these years.

This morning
I woke you from your dreams
and you were my girl
I gently caressed your face
and you were my baby
I softly whispered, "I love you"
and you were my sweetheart

But that was this morning
and hours have since passed

The look in your eyes now
excited, timid, and unsure
of what I'm gonna do next
as I pin you against the wall
Our faces, so close
Forehead to forehead
Lips almost touching
but not tonight
Kisses are for lovers
and there is no love here
You are not my sweetheart
from this morning
and I am not the man
that gently caressed your face
I am a strong and lustful beast
and you...
You are nothing more
than just my prey

I move in and smell
the sweet aroma
of your neck
and breathe lightly on it
causing surges to race
along your spine
You wrap your arms
around me and draw me close
The space between us
instantly vanishes
And now, I can feel
your heartbeat screaming
pounding against my chest
as I nibble upon your earlobe
"Oh baby, please take me now"
You whisper passionately
setting off an explosion
of sexual fury within me
Violently, I tear away
the chothing that hides
your innocent body
Your shirt, discarded
like unwanted trash
as you frantically
squirm free from your jeans
You don't even bother
to kick them away
Your attention pulled elsewhere
and you stare seductively
into my lustful eyes
as you reach behind
unfastening your bra
Meanwhile, I'm fiercely
ripping your panties off
that mock me with their presence
You stand facing me
with your bare back
pressed against the wall
Naked, exposed
and helplessly vulnerable
to my devious desires
I take a moment
to absorb the sight
Soaking in every curve
of your sexy body
My chest raises and falls
with deep and heavy breaths
of dirty passion, sexual rage
and burning anticipation

I will ravish your body
I will fully control you
because tonight
I completely OWN you
...and your entire sexuality
belongs solely to me

This morning
I may have woken
loving you as my baby
But tonight...
I'm gonna fuck you
as if I despise you.

2010-2012 Poems

You are the smile on my lips,
The tears in my eyes…
The lemon in my tequila,
The salt sprinkled on my wound…

I breathe for you, I bleed for you…
My life, my death, my strength, my pain, my hero…
My monster…but above all—
My love.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

-(c)jerlin 31May11. Piece for my video poetry...for the people you can't live with and can't live without.


Enveloped in your embrace
while strong hands tenderly caress
the curves of my body

Soft, succulent sweep of your lips over mine
carrying me to where I long to be

As your arms slip behind ever so slightly
lifting my shoulders to press breasts to chest
I gracefully arch
offering you sultry sensuality

Deliberate lush brushes against the red swirl of my throne
arouse the Goddess Serpent of eternity

She rises slowly from the earth

Lifting her head
swaying rhythumicly
revealing her inner sanctum
to her God Serpent's , intoxicating song

Her God Serpent slithers back along his Goddess
entwining around her as
they begin the dance of one

Slow blazefull passion
ignites to a silky intensity
unlocking places of unbounding heights
essence of you essence of me
whispered desires in the night

Dare to let go
reveal your fantasies
surrender them to me

Goddess Serpent
