Poetic Expressions... Random Blurbs, Thoughts and Tweets...
My Inner Muse
Words. They are inadequate at portraying an accurate depiction of your beauty...they are but a mere glimpse, imperfect, yet still an advance toward expressing what the gods gifted to the earth on your birth. Her essence sprays upon the cosmos with every step like beams radiating from freedom's torch...Liberating. With every breath in her presence your heart is scorched as an eternal reminder of having encountered her countenance. Her ambiance breaths life into your ambition and confirms your purpose and place in this world, for the absence of her attention would surely bring you sorrow. You too should be so blessed to identify yourself in such a way. Stare, do stare into your own reflection as I AM she who plays the lyre to my own poetic impulses.
Survive the storm only to die by an airborne epidemic, where's the clinic? Packing my bags trying to find another way so my triumph will be endemic of positivity and put on display, electric in nature, rise, watch me arise to my feet and conquer the dreams that I seek. Guarded with knowledge, I'll protect them to the end and any threat I'll slew them as I ascend to higher heights invisibly crawling out of the abyss. See me rise? No, the heart of a dreamer, you can't touch what you do not know exists. Guarded, yes I guard my dreams with the knife of transition, never showing the enemy my position, only to emerge after I accomplish the mission.
I am: human, a believer in all things positive, a possessor of an identity shaped by God, a holder of a complex future written by my maker and executed by me.
I am: impatient with the impatient.
I am: motivated, driven and armed with resolute determination.
I believe: in hope, a dreamer, a motivator, a musical mind.
I want: to view the world from a window seat planted beside the greatest story teller on a long flight to Knowledge.
I am: a verbal rambler.
I love: music and believe that is speaks volumes even when played on the lowest frequency.
I love: beauty and find it in the more simple things in life.
I appreciate: my family and friends because they were given to me as gifts.
I choose: to live in the now, be thankful for every opportunity given, and avoid derailment, delay, or separation from my destiny.
I am: a constant dreamer.

- "Has it ever occurred to anyone that what our culture defines as freedom may not be defined as such for others? It may even be bondage. If you ask people what they want, regardless of culture or location, most say that they simply want certainty, peace and good education for their children. So the question becomes: How can u seek to GIVE something when u haven't ASKED what is needed or desired? I think this is where we've missed the mark in our democratic endeavors."
