stay true to what you know. what the greats have taught us.


"today i feel sad
deserted, poked, small
you have quite a way of knowing just what to say
you grow taller through the words you choose
you are the almighty,
you will not yield,
day three and you're at it again

i believed we had grown past the old days of because i give you this you will be that
i thought that you vowed this mountain would never define you
i thought you believed we were in this together
giving, taking, learning... in and throughout
not building ones ego
not tearing down your other

i am not with you in this space
ugly, selfish, and all consuming
what happened to you up there?
how did you get lost?

don't forget you who are, and who you want to become.

remember what matters... Love
love out loud and to each other
stay true to what you know for sure, what the greats have taught us.
do not listen to those hardened passerby's
do not let them, let you think, that this stuff is real.

i thought you were stronger than that
us, a team against fools.

i believed we knew what others forgot, or out of their own selfishness, would never have allowed in to begin with.

go outside and breath it in
see how the flowers come out of the earth
how the leaves change colors and fall in changing seasons
look at how people can forgive, extend grace, and live peacefully
sit on the front porch and watch how life goes on living... however we choose to live it"
