I Do Ordain

I Do Ordain

There is this poison in my brain Making me go insane This new strain Has taken reign Over my membrane Hoping to gain The fame Attached to my name Outside and alone in the pouring rain I look down to the stain And with much disdain I refrain From releasing my emotions How have I gotten here? Who am I? Lifeless and with shame I swerve to stay in my own lane Feeling the bane Of this pain I do…

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Reflection: As I sit outside and feel the sun wash upon my face, I can’t help but smile. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining. Its days like these that make me feel as if there is nothing bad in this world. I wish this was true. Bad thoughts have a funny way of intruding upon the mind. They mostly come when we least expect it. This causes me to push myself to enjoy…

The Return

The Return

One Post to Rule Them All: I’ve been engulfed by a busy set of transitions these past couple of days and I haven’t had time to write much. The past week has been filled with a variety of changes; finishing my junior year, saying goodbye to friends who are graduating, and starting a new job.

Blessings List

Blessings List

Challenge: Make a list of everything you are thankful for and look over it on a daily basis. Read the list every time you wake up and right before you go to sleep.

Are you thankful for what you have?

Pain: A Poem

Pain: A Poem

Pain A feeling of discomfort In the palm of my hand Drilling through my white t-shirt In the dripping wet sand A sharp pain in my side A quick intake of breath Struggling to maintain my stride No time for my death A cloak of numbness falls over me The pain refuses to subside Unable to see Unable to enjoy the ride Engulfed by flames of fire Swallowed up by the raging sea My only desire Is to be free

Thoughts: A Poem

Thoughts: A Poem

Trapped inside my own mind A prison with no walls, yet nowhere to hide Looking for some way out The constant struggle from day to day Battling with my fears The nights are always filled with tears I don’t understand this pain This emotion inside of me I know the Lord is real and with me Yet I question my purpose Blinded by only what my eyes can see I feel so much anger Why did he have to take…
