Pay It Forward

Anyone who is looking for help

On their darkest days

Or even in their happiest of times

Does not deserve to suffer.

 

The act of seeking support

Shows a desire to change

A hunger for growth

A passion to live their lives

In the best way possible.

 

The pursuit of self enlightenment

Finding one’s purpose

And traveling through the

Hills and valleys of life

With their dignity in tact

Is reached through

Helping others

So they can build their foundation

And support themselves

And helping yourself

Be the best version of you.

 

Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dad’s out there! This poem was inspired by my dad. He is the most giving person that I know, and has helped more people than I can count. My family continues to inspire me and teach me lessons about life, and I couldn’t have asked for better support.

Things Unsaid

There are many things I’d like to say to you

The fact that I was lying

To your face

For the majority of my life

That I loved you

And hated you

Equally and simultaneously

That I wished you were more

Than the man you thought you were

And would become the man you always dreamed of

And I want to

Be honest with you

For the first time in my life

Tell you that I care

About every hurtful word

You threw my way

And I would

Change the past

To change the future

And make the present right

But I can’t

Because

You’re

Not

Here.

Great Potential

There lay

A sleeping babe

So sweet and innocent

Coddled by his single mother

Alone.

 

He was

A dreaming boy

That dreamt of peace and love

Though he did not yet understand

What is.

 

Sweet love,

Dreaming of hope,

With the strongest power

Of changing the world for better

For all.

 

This boy

Although naive

Would surely learn his power

To create a world of great joy

So soon.

 

He will

Help his mother

‘Til the day he is strong

Enough to rid the world of bad

For us.

 

There lay

A dreaming boy

With the strongest power

To create a world of great joy

For us.

Life Changes

So you want to be happy, but don’t know how?

Well here’s the reason why:

You’re too distracted with the thought

Of skin rubbing, thigh to thigh

And stop telling yourself that things will change on their own

Because you know that’s a lie

You have to ignore the naysayers

Critiquing you as you walk by

That’s the first step to accepting

A brand new way of life

And changing your habits one by one

Slowly saying goodbye

To the you that you used to be

And hello

To the you

That has reached

The sky.
