Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


Sometimes, You Get Lost Along The Way


Trying to find my way

Sometimes, you get lost along the way


From the first light of day, crafting experiences

No word count when you don’t know what to say

There are times you stumble

There are times you fall

Even if you stagger to your feet

You know you have to carry on


Sometimes, you get lost along the way

Trying to find my way


Internal retreat

Closing the shudders

In the silence, I just think

But thoughts choose to avoid me

Internal, I fall deeper

Light a candle to light up the void


Trying to find my way

Sometimes, you get lost along the way


What can you do?

Say hush to those voices that try to fool you

Picking up my feet again

The lights are dimming on another day


Trying to find my way

Poignant Sky


Life can take a toll

Even if you don’t want to pay

Collecting change and waiting

Rearrange the pieces

But the centerpiece remains in place

Not looking towards the sky

Peering deep into my heart

To find a resurrected God

Always there

My soles press on step by step

Despite exhausted legs

Hope can be a stubborn mule

Refusing to be moved

All the while infusing the spirit

I’m not waiting the sun to shine

Permanent light is inside

The sky is holding back the tears

Though it wants to cry

I just keep on walking

As the clouds make their way by

Friday Inspiration: Time To Shine

Eternal light

Shining within

And shining through

In the blink of an eye

Life can say “goodbye”

Now is the time

To shine bright

Scorching Heart


Rising like a revival

Scorching heart

Raging fire

Phoenix transformation

Red sky blazing

Bullshit melting like wax

Soul truth emerging from the ashes

The feint of heart still denying themselves

Step up to the table

Free food for thought

Feeding the mind fiery introspection

Burning notions

Disclosing once closed theories

The phoenix within

Now free

Maybe when tomorrow comes

It will all be gone

Buried under an unmarked tombstone

The decay of the unnecessary

Resuscitation of what is real

The ghosts linger still

They don’t know where to go

So we sign peace treaties

As we tuck our hearts back inside

To feel once again…what was slipping away

Thoughtful Thursday: Anchor

“Do you have an anchor? I have found that a solid anchor is indispensable to one who intends to live life fully. To have an anchor is to be centered and well grounded. It is to have a vital spiritual base.”

For a moment

I let my guard down

You struck quick and ferociously

My soul wounded

My thoughts woozy

But you should know

I do not fall easily

I concede this tiny victory to you

Tomorrow is a new day

God willing
