The simplicity of the sun-rays,
cascades gently, as it flows, solitarily,
alongside a restful frame.
Creeping along, spreading its warming glow, throughout time and space.
Illuminating the walls, in the rooms in which love dwells.
Shifting, ever so gently,
Not wanting to arise, from such a soothing and intoxicating slumber.
Conforming and surrendering unto its will, by the very liquescence of one’s core.
Cradling of all senses, allowing a hypnotic flow of acknowledgment and acceptance,
Of who one is and created to be.
The smile of the “ever-knowing” of the journeys lost, conquered and lie ahead,
Forming the symbiotic relationship of everlasting hope and faith,
Another fraction in time of rare appreciative value.
Blessed opportunities flow upon the crown, created divinely and definitively,
By the “Most High” of all and eternity.
Promise of another day is indeed guaranteed to none.
The significance of its very existence, simplistically noticed.
Self-acknowledgement of uniquely coded blueprints,
Never to achieve the ability, to rival the first clarification of awareness,
Anatomic crescendo, of Mt. Rushmore-ish enlightenment,
Interlacing with the arterial system and igniting the flames of life,
within your soul.
For it is within the most simplistic of things, the greatest of things derive…

“I Don’t Want Your Pity”
I don’t want your pity
I can stand on my own
I’ve been through worse than this
And I’ve made it alone
No matter the journey
Or who watches the fight
I’ve gone through it
I’m still here and alright
You see obstacles, problems & stress
I don’t have that kind of time to waste
There’s just too much to live for
The knowledge of life has a beautiful taste
So save your pity for those who seek it
As my energies propel me to places unseen
I have sprung forth from the “coal-pressured-into-a-diamond” life
Blindingly swift, as I continue to gleam
You can keep it, for it isn’t needed…I don’t want your pity, lol!

“It’s All About YOU”
I used to be in a very dark place.
There was zero tolerance & limited space,
For this emotion, that’s called love.
I couldn’t bear the sound of my own name.
As if mentioning it was to blame,
For the negativity in my existence.
A spiritual flight,
Fighting with all of my might,
I struggled, just because.
Through the hustle & the grind,
With this life, that I claim as mine,
I became distracted from whom I was.
I do not buy into luck,
I refuse to remain stuck,
For I was designed & created to NEVER give up.
When times arrived & I had no clues,
I banged my head on the proverbial wall until it was black & blue.
I quieted my mind, spoke to my Soul,
And I felt, my way through.
Here I AM, existing,
with the sheer strength of my will,
to make my commands come true.
I will make it, no matter where I am, or what others do.
Find your strength, magick, power & synergy from within…
And become the divine creation that is YOU.

“What should I write?”
How many of us, have asked this question? Probably all of us, at one time or another.
I suggest that you don’t stress it. Simply grab a pen and some paper, cuddle up with your keyboard or maybe you rather record it. Whichever vice you choose, it’s fun and creative to just brainstorm.
Be free with your thoughts, even if they seem wild, mild, boring or exciting. The point is to get it on paper. You can then go over it.
This is a method that I use often. When going over my “Ramblings”, I make great discoveries. Once or twice I’ve even come up with an epiphany or two. I have amazed myself a few times as well, as to how deep the mind can go.
“Ramblings”, can be great. I’ve even laughed at myself (quite often honestly, lol!) and found humor in them. Every now & then, even some profound wisdom peeks out.
No matter how your thoughts and feelings are, they’re exposed and can be used in your poetry and writing. What I love the most, is that they’re ones raw thoughts.
So, don’t be afraid to write.
