I will never walk your path; only give you direction. I wouldn’t tell you where to go; only describe where I have been. I am no fortune teller, but I am the man of the future. What we hold dear today can be gone tomorrow; we have to preserve our present to give the next generation presence . I can sit back and get comfortable but I have the desire to share with the world; how can we quarter back if we have nothing to pass on. Why would we eat without leaving crops in the ground. Our growth as a race deals with a structure that doesn’t stifle the progression of creativity. I will never tell you what you can or can’t do, but I will ask you to use your can’s to help those who can’t!!!!
It pains me your eyes are retaining water; you should be quenched with natural pleasures. The life you live has been designed for a purpose. Resigning isn’t your destiny; you can’t surrender to negative forces, though we all must retire. Don’t give in because you’re tired; take a few extra steps, allowing them to see that you’re the best even at your worst. Refrain from lashing out because they crave any attention they can weave into affection. I know, you feel so vulnerable, but your skin is so thick it’s impenetrable. Let them keep throwing jabs; it takes less energy to block them than to throw one back. I understand when turning the cheek, the other will get bruised, but I am not asking you not to fight back. I am teaching when and how to fight back. Studying your opponent gives you the ability to pass every test. I want you to write in ink until you have perfected what you want to relay. Why get caught in a tussle, when you can flex your greatest muscle. I see the forecast seems to always call for rain but it’s about to dial sunshine!!!!
Every human contemplates evil, but it takes a certain type of “man” to act on the impulse. We are all created equal, but some rise above and some fall below, while others settle for their birth right. We don’t maximize on our development or exhaust our creativity; Yet, we belittle the success of champions to build esteem for those who finish behind them. We have to stop justifying the acts of the undisciplined, by testing the will of the disciplined. As a nation, we are morally bankrupt. Our tax dollars are supporting low-esteem and killing dreams in the process. “Everybody makes mistakes” but the IRS will capitalize on them!!!!
When did we stop looking for true love and giving into one night stands that promise improvements? which never happen! When did we stop going after what we want in a mate; instead of commit to people with a good heart or potential, but no passion or romantic love, just the safe bet? When did our rules change because we have been so battered and bruised that we become the batterers and bruisers? When did life become so short that we are willing to settle for less just to have companionship? When are we going to start interviewing prospects, but not hire until they are what we want and reflect what we are worth? When are we going to stop holding on to the past of who he or she was and start seeing who he or she is? Bottom line is, if you have a person that you never want to close your eyes around and can’t wait to wake up as soon as your lids shut; a person that you start to find everything you hate in others cute in them; a person that you look in their eyes and see forever; and hearing their heart beat assures you that your dream has come true; hold on to it! If you don’t have it in your life, stop what you have been doing and start stalking true love!!!!
The failure of a relationship varies in reasons, but ultimately it stems from one/two believing it wouldn’t be in their benefit to continue. We can blame each other but it boils down to chemistry. Mix two substances that don’t belong together and it will blow up. We are groomed to put our best foot forward and once in the door show that the other foot has a defect. That advice does get us in the door but it doesn’t keep us there; hence the divorce rate being so high. Society puts a premium on instant gratification e.g. sex, money, and self-promotion, but the gratification will truly come from unity; taking the time to build a connection that will weather the storms, strengthen when tested, and most importantly be an example to link others. Let’s stop using our first date to be liked, and start using them to fall in-love. Allow the person across from you to know who they’re investing in “past”, “present”, and “future”. Let them know where you come from, who you are, and where you wish to be. Use God’s gift of choice to build a relationship that is based on two people merging to share the same lane, going to the same destination!!!!
We struggle with right and wrong daily. When is it right to be violent? When is it wrong to be truthful? When is it right to leave a relationship? When is it wrong to be right? Right or wrong starts within. What’s right is doing the things you expect from others. If everybody believed in self defense, there would be no violence. If we took care of one another, then no one should go hungry. If we believed in building a true community, there would be no ghettos or slums. We have the power to change our existence. But yet “the strong” want to continue to strive off “the weak” just to say they are superior; and the weak are not strong enough to see that they are the ones in power because their numbers are strong and they drive the tanks that keep the weak weaker and the strong stronger, by staying divided. Can you see in these words that there are no weak or strong, only us, creating division for self worth. We step on one another to get ahead and the truth is all its doing is pushing us backwards, while God cries and the Devil collects the tears while torments the burning souls with freedom!!!!
Hope is anything we wish for and are willing to die to make a reality. The belief in being the greatest is known in silence and understood in volume. Yet, we work at just fitting a standard when we have more to offer. We smile in the face of people we never want to know. We pity people that accomplished freedom we would never know. We want things that will cause more pain and leave behind the great pleasures. Yet, we molded a world where we would rather hang with a con artist then in the presence of a preacher. We would rather party than deal; blame than accept; disintegrate than grow. We did this! We choose to allow our differences to outweigh our similarities. We chose to feel sorry for ourselves instead of making sure our kids don’t have the same fate. We build a world on glass instead of stone. We shaped hope to be something we dream about and not live. A bright future is in our ability to merge many voices into one, several ideas into progression, and truth into religion!!!!
