Soul Searching…

Dear Maya Angelou (my muse),
I do, now, know why the caged bird sings…
To be heard,
To be seen,
To soothe others,
To express self,
To remain sane,
To soothe pain,
To sing…
Just to sing….
But over all
To be FREED…
Sometimes its better to make the best of a bad situation, than to let all of the negativity consume you and change you into what you detest.
Change is inevitable, work hard to remove yourself from a negative situation.

Words Of The Wise

They say I over think,
I say they don’t think enough.
You would be surprised what others say when your back is turned, even more surprised when they know you’re listening, its all the same.
People only value what you can do for them.
If you are of no use it is then you become nothing to their world, but a spun joke, exaggerated lie, and a punching bag to release their anger.
What goes around comes around, karma has a way of shaking up the petty minded fools who belittle and ridicule your acts kindness.
It all goes without saying you never know what a person truly thinks of you.
Their actions will always reveal what’s hidden though.
Those who step on you to reach higher ground will always learn the hard way.
Lesson being, the same way up is the same way down.
Be careful how you treat those who have seemingly fallen asleep in their destiny.
Because when they awaken, you’ll forever watch them live their dream.
Talk behind another persons back and God will bless them in your face.
Words carry a lot of weight.

When there is no one who believes in you.
And all you do seems incomplete and shrewd.
When there is no hope in the creative fuels.
When a pen and a keypad is your only weapon against fools.
When every moment seems rehearsed and confused.
Its is then you’ll know, a poets anguish of silence bemused .
Mumble words of an artist inner blues.
Unsung songs with emotions unrealized.
Then you’ll know a sore cry
of unwritten words so trivialized.
