You can do it

We all have goals we want to achieve

But we're not willing to put the work required

It may have to do with how we perceive

the road should be to reach our desires


When reality's different from expectation

The fire in you begins to decrease

It also goes down with your motivation

Then your strength to continue completely cease


What that means is your outlook just needs to change 

Nothing good in life is never ever easy

When challenges come, don't think it's something strange

Because that's how life goes, things never go smoothly


Put God first and you surely will make it through

And along with that you need some discipline

If you're passionate, work harder to prove it's true

With time and consistency you'll certainly win


You can do it, so push yourself to the limit

It's with great dedication the legends did it

Focus on your goals and ignore the critics

Keep it up long enough you will surely make it


God Is Greater!

God is Greater!

So, don’t fear bad weather, news, and the taunts of your haters

You show God’s love by forgiving and unfailingly loving all your neighbors


And it shall be given upon to you

For you are blessed and highly favored by God

All these things shall be giving a billion-fold of what was robbed

For, Great is God than he or it of this world

Use your talents to uplift all man, woman, boy, and girl

For the time has come

My Dear Chosen One

To spread your wings and fly

Flying high amongst the sky

For your dreams are big bigger than you can do yourself

So, learn to depend and to submit to someone else

For, the greatest good

Use your gifts to uplift and pull others out of the ghetto and hood

I wish I could touch you and hold you tight

For, this is a fight for your soul’s life

Get Right

And get dress for church to go hear the Word

Trust, eventually you live out what is heard

For no man can stop what God has already ordained as His own

I pray, let His Holy Spirit live in your body your temple your home

I promise with God you’re never alone

I speak victory

I hope you hear me

Greatness, Purity, Holiness, and Wholeness

For you are greater than this!

I speak rise up him and her!

Pick up your bed, walk into your true worth, and sin no more for  

God is Greater!

Let Your Light So Shine!!!

The Moment


Whether you think you are fated to be here or not

Your past brought you here to this moment.

I am sure you have heard that the definition of insanity is

doing something the same way and expecting different results.

Well it’s true,

If you want your future to change,

keeping on the same course will give you the same result.

Even the slightest change can have a big change in your future.

Take for example your job.

If you are unhappy in your job for whatever reason, your performance will suffer.

Eventually you may be fired or just up and quit because of your dissatisfaction.

But if you decide that, you are not going to let the gossip get to you or

you just change the way you look at it and decide that you may be unhappy with where you are at.

But if I apply myself and try hard to learn what I can and perform to the best of my ability.

People will take notice of that.

It won’t be an overnight change. 

It will take some time, but eventually people will change their mind about you.

They will rely on you to get things done. 

If you keep at it you may find yourself in a high position.

Or with a good refrence for your ideal job.

Each day is like a blank page.

You can decide that today I am going to fill this page with my best.

If I don’t do as good as yesterday, so what.

If you did your best that is what counts.

Make small steps each day. 

Eventually you will get to your dream. 

There is great power in this moment.

don’t put your dream off any more.

Decide to right now make that first step.

Then take the next, and so on.

It requires a conscious effort to make each moment count.

Take a deep breath,

and make it count.

Number two of my motivational series.

I am going to make it simple for you.

Motivation first and foremost starts with you.

It does not start when you get up in the morning.

It starts right before you decide to give up.




But you have to believe that it is possible.

That you will stand in your dream and look around and that is all you see.

Behind you is the corpses of those that said it’s too hard.

You know what that’s BULL SHIT!

It is only too hard if you believe it is.

Think about those people that have achieved greatness.

Did they go

“I can’t do it. It’s too hard. Why me?”


But I can tell you what they decided to keep at it.

They did not sit back and say that life will hand them greatness.


I have been there

at the point of why does it hurt, why me, why, why, why?

I cried and buried my face in the pillow hoping it would just disappear.

But I hit the bottom,

But I said NO!

I will not go into that darkness.

I will not let the darkness into my soul any more than it is.

I will stand up and say


That is what you need to do.

Take that pain and use it to push forward.

I believed in myself that this would not be the end of me.

And it wasn’t

Now you don’t see the battle,

There are scars that were left behind but all you see is the outcome.

And that is good enough for me, because that battle is what I use to keep on pushing.


The belief that you can and will is stronger than any force you can imagine.

And that is the first step, believing that you can.

If you believe that your journey has ended than it has.

So choose do you want to be a corpse that others pass on their way?

Or do you want to take that next step?

You don’t have to believe in a God or Gods.

It’s a belief in yourself that you are worth it.

That nothing will get in your way.


So my advice to you is this.

Take the first step, believe that you can.

Scream it to the Heavens.

But most importantly mean it.

Lost Ones

No idea how i wound up here

I pick a stick and venture out in this wilderness

No memories of times past and no hope for times coming

The nights are unbearably cold and during the day i could swear the sun is taunting me

The hills are massive and daunting

And these ghosts of past failures never cease haunting

The transverse is narrow

No visible signs of life are present, no crows no vultures or even a sparrow

I trek on, hoping to find something, someone or some sign of life

The path appears to go on endlessly and i grow weary of this endless strife

I'm close to giving up on this journey

The i see it , an oasis beautiful and i race there with joyful want and happiness unbound

But as i reach my paradise i stop and realize that it's just a mirage

My heart is forced back down and in the heat of moment i laugh

I laugh harder than i ever have before 

After all this, i still have more journeys to embark on?

And as I laugh and force myself to be positive and look to the sky

I see the sun, taunting me again and I can't help it.... I cry

I cry just as hard as i laughed... but eventually i stop that

After I bared my soul out and sowed my salt water into the earth

I stand up, pack up and venture once more into the desert

I may be bent, maybe broken but not shattered completely

I can still pick myself up and this daunting and overbearing journey?

I will beat it.

Many World Theory

There's an interesting hypothesis that i've loved for a long time

From comic books to science shows, let me explain the many world theory

It states that there's an infinite number of worlds and hence an infinite number of you

Each may be exactly the same, a slight variation or widely diverse from yourself

Every mistake, wrong decision or faux pas made either never happened, was exactly the same or is much more worse

You could be anybody or a nobody

You've seen it all or you're just being born

You've  known the harshness of war and lived the in the lap of luxury

You've helped countless lives and you're destroyed just as much

You're living and you're being mourned

As amazing as this theory is. It makes me think that instead of fantasizing about lives not lived and objectives not accomplished

I'm alive right here and right now so whats stopping me?

I am. 

Stop thinking what might be and start accomplishing what should be

The greatest and scariest thing about the future is that it is unknown

Good or bad? Flip the coin and decide the outcome

When there’s no hope to run to, I’ll make one of my own by myself

In each situation I face, I reach forth for guidance by there is no one else

You can’t count on anyone to save you all the time

Not when staying true to friendship isn’t really on their minds

Who should I turn to?

False friends often mistaken as enemies; It seems mostly everyone would expect you to lose.

I’m not going to yield under the high expectations of failing nor start to cry

Exchanging gazes with the world’s unfamiliar faces, I’m not the typical girl people would like

I have barely anyone to run to when here I stand at an all-time low

The mental pressure becomes dense … even when reality sometimes makes no common sense to just quit and go

They can be the judging critics meanwhile I’m the lowly underdog trying to prove her worth

All I really want to achieve success in proving others wrong first

But is that all a dream?

Not all things aren’t what it seems

 A dreamer’s ambition is what drives us to continue on in the struggle

It empowered me myself, always wanting to catch my dreams with yearning actions operating what I feel are right  through trouble




Author's Notes/Comments: 

Give positive feedback and criticism!

Every day should be like Christmas time

During the Christmas season, people tend to be more nice.
We should be like that every single day and that statement is precise.
Every day of the year should be like Christmas time.
If it was that way, there would be less hate and crime.

It's important to always be good to others.
In the eyes of God, we're all sisters and brothers.
Be kind to your fellow man, that's very important to remember.
I hope everybody has a Merry Christmas on the 25th of December.

Back from the dead

Something almost tragic happened in 2010.
I came very close to losing my best friend.
She died and they revived her by taking electric paddles to her.
If she had perished, it would've been devastating to all who knew her.

When we rode on the school bus, she always gave me a seat.
She's very nice and everybody is priveleged who she meets.
I believe that God was behind her being saved and I know why.
God knows like I do that she's too nice of a person to die.

Dedicated to Tammy Carper who nearly perished.
