Stand Tall

You are as capable as the words you speak.

For you to wish to feel a love for life you must learn to love what it may give you. 

Standing stall, just by your words can give you mountains of hope. 

You make feel thrones, but you also can use the same thorns to break through what is holding you captive.

Use your throat to send thousands of faint hearts to sleep. 

You are strong, you have stood through the fire, as you believe. You can only be what you believe.

Use your hands not of a fist, but through grading fate. 

As you will.

If I lend you mine, my heart will be the one to win. As you must learn to fight.

The fight will more than your body, fight with the knowledge in your brain. As it breaks codes.

You must stand tall to see what you have done and what you can do.

 stand tall.

Wicked

Wicked, go.
Morals that reflect a part of my body that is evil,
cast away.
Leave, I am here for peace. 
I am done with the lingering teeth of hate and sin.
I am here for love and taking new steps.
The wicked must leave, be dragged from my body.
Death of flowers, new beginnings of thorns, no more.
Love weighs more than red eyes. Red heart.
I am here for improvement, not lust or bad.
The wicked of this world, cannot cast on my skin.
I am clean.
The wicked will go, as we grow. New growth is new beginnings,
away from the evil eyes that watch your uniqueness. 
Wicked of my mind, I am stronger,
I am stronger.

Hate is heavy

Hate is heavy
it holds you down to the negatives of the world
it misshapes your eyes to see dark colors. 
hate is misused,
if this is hate, your body knows before your head.
your body hurts; pain overtakes everything. 
they way you chose to get over this feeling, 
shows the colors you've been blinded by. 
if you push through it with hate, your color is red.
understanding, blue, and wisdom, white.
I pick colors to identify my feelings to know,
that the code is crackable. 
it is okay to be hurt, but it is better to overcome,
easier for your head to grow if no fire is in your box of a head. 
please grow, please chose love and prosperity.
not for me, for you.

Breathe


Breathe.

People with fire in their bodies will forget the boldness of breath.

Their voice is too hot to take in what we need, but instead what they want.

But you, you are different. You will breathe, and heal.

If you breathe and have calm in your lungs, they will crave it. 

Shock them, be brave. 

Take a needed breath and walk away from fire, for you are more.

More than anger, more than the lust they crave.

You are calm as you need to be. 

You are brave because you don't use your fist in anger,

but instead, you use your voice, something they cant break.

They will try to tempt you to be a bigger person, because

they don't know the feeling.
 
 
Breathe and walk away.

My love

My love,

Give yourself time to grow.  Grow.

Like a flower, you need light to grow.   I will be your light.

Your mind is more than chaos.   Your mind is so beautiful,

The power you hold is electric.   I can't wait till you see it, 

I can't wait for the day you grasp your boldness   And learn what it can teach you. 

You are beautiful,   listen to your mind.

Listen to your brain, my love.   It can teach you wonderful things

For me

For me,

Life is a beautiful mess.

yes a mess can be beautiful,

like making cookies, flour on the tip of your daughter's nose. 

For me,

I try to look on the not messy side of things first.

because i know,

I will eventually get to the strings attached to them, I just need time to breathe. 

For me,

happiness doesn't come easy.

I had to fight like war,

but the more i fought the stronger life saw me.

For me,

I was put on this earth to show my power,

not with my power of fists,

but with my power of love. 

For me,

I will be happy.

You are stronger

You are stonger,

Save your energy my love. 
You have always been the one begging for love at the feet of dust.

Save your mind my darling,
Your eyes have seen so many beautiful things, far more than the bad.

Save your heart my friend,
Your skin is not taint from the toxic fingers that have bleached it.

Save your breath child,
Your mother willfully made the air in your lungs, which will put out thousands of angry hands ;by voice

Save your strength honey
You are stronger than the flame they tried to light apon your wooden skin. 

you are stronger,
you always have been.
