Make It Count

hands-1222866_1280

Make it count, whatever you do.
Do it with a willing heart; we are here for a brief moment, each second is priceless. Choose wisely the things that matters, the things that are good and precious. Hold life a little closer, love a little harder, be passionate about what you believe in, listen with your heart….and most important, stand up for what you believe in.

Bravery

She painted a rainbow

Over her scars

Hid the dark clouds In her bones

And carry on With all the bravery In the world©

Poetry Today

In A Valley Of Thorns You Are Fire

rose

Today is the day

Interrupt the sky

Break the halos

Kiss the silver lining

Lay between magnolia blooms

Feel the incessant

Beat of your heart

Spread out your ageless wings

Of topaz

Of rose buds

In a valley of thorns

You are fire

And ice

You are majestic elegance

You are the lost melody

Found deep

Within trembling souls

You are delectable

My love

You will be the stories found

On the lips of legends

Poetry Today

Forgiven

woman-571715_960_720

I stand on the edge of despair

Eyes cast down

I gave up sometimes

Fearing I might not make it

Yet I keep holding on

Each day

I cry

Deep dark tears

Emptying my soul

I stumbled, falling, grasping

I keep holding on

I stand in the shadows

And there

I cried

My face masking

The pain that ripped at my heart

Deep, dark pain

Filling my soul with emptiness

I tried to remember a scripture

I once learned

The Lord is

My Shepard I shall not want

He made me

To lie down in green pastures

He restores my soul

I felt hope

Stirring within me

So I hold on

I knelt

Eyes to the ground

Praying, Seeking,

And there on my knees

He restores my soul

He refresh my mind

I cling to Him

And with a heart of love

He sets me free

I am crying now

But there’s no pain

No sorrow, no doubt

Only tears of Joy

I’m redeemed

Lifted up

I’ve found comfort

I’m free

To rest in His arms

Now I knelt

Eyes lifted towards heaven

And with a shout of victory

I know I’ve been forgiven

I rejoice in His presence

I step fourth in faith

And hope and love©
