To live your life
The way that you see
Don't worry about being prefect
Because the movement doesn't have to be
-an excerpt from "Participate"
Like a waterfall that begins
With only one drop of water
Life is fluid
And I'm just a formless boat
A golden tongue drifter
Who chooses to watch
The tragic sleight-of-hand
Because often times it's the tragedies behind the triumphs
That really make the moments magical
-an excerpt from Passion
It goes beyond just dreaming.
It's about defining your dreams, your hopes, your wishes.
And then it's about MAKING YOUR DREAMS A REALITY.
In order to do this, we must be willing to take risks, to break down
those walls of resistance and give your heart a beat!
If you cannot risk, you cannot grow.
If you cannot grow, you cannot become your best.
If you cannot become your best, you cannot be happy.
And if you cannot be happy, what else matters?
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
The sky begs for more stars
For someone to shine
-excerpt from "Shine"
Dreamt I was a Poet
Writing a revolution
What's a revolution
Without a dreamer anyway
So let me dream tonight
In the company of those
With a spotlight to spare
Where hearts stay open past dark
-excerpt from "A Place To Shine
Today is your last day
It's your only day
The pulse of your story
Will come rising up through you
And be given back to the wind
What will your story be?
-an excerpt from "Passion"
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
Fear cloaks the world in silent suffering.
It tames you.
Be a madman!
Mad to live
Mad to dream
Mad to BE!
Poetry has always been medicine for me
Injecting life into my soul
Striking lightning off the breath of my pulse
It moves me
And in order to keep it
I must give it away
When you tell your story
Do so with ambition
Those that think it needs censorship
Don't have to listen
It's not enough to speak up...Make Noise!
I've always enjoyed this quote. It's the Truth and you know how I like the Truth.
So get up, get out, and get something. Don't let the days of your life pass by!
To transition we must enter a state in which we are no longer what we once were, and yet we are not who we must become. We have to be willing to stand in the open and momentarily risk being nothing.
Amid storms we gather the gray
As the lightning comes
Making room for magnificent
A sun will shine!
