Start striving 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 Making waves 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
Chase your dreams
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?

Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be Notorious.
The sky begs for more stars For someone to shine Shine poet Shine!

Revolution (such a scary word)
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

What will your story be?
Imagine Today is your last day It's your only day Today 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"
Still I Rise
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.
Passion Is Now
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 Soothes 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!
Yeah...what Buddha said
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!
