I was uprooted and asked why I hadn’t grown.
I replied, “I don’t know, maybe because I need to be sown.”
The irony of a withered soul
but able to realize
with real eyes
that the half has yet to be told
and the horizon holds
and pauses to then release and unfold
the blessing of being uprooted from toxic
and treacherous terrain
I wait for it to rain.
Had my eyes dilated,
but soon found myself frustrated
By the brightness of the light
And speeds too fast to even play catch up to
It is far too bright for virgin eyes
That were programmed to only desire to know enough to work and retire
So I work
Yet retiring is not an option
I am still up and it feels natural. It is 9:55pm and everyone is sleeping-my wife and three children. I have been entrusted by God to be a devout husband to the girl of my dreams, and a strong father to my children. I am well aware of where the gifts came from, as well as the fact that I am empowered by God to lead and provide for them. I do not believe that God sleeps, but staying up just long enough to make sure that the entire house is asleep brings me a joy that I take into myself and cherish.
Being rubbed the wrong way is not necessarily bad.
Awkward and uncomfortable
A discomfort for
And to a dullness
A dullness that simply needed to be rubbed the wrong way.
It’s only 2 Days in and I am already looking forward to conquering complacency! Some set out to read the Bible in a year, but soon get off track. I commit my life to motivating that person with anxiety that is a prisoner in their mind. My message is simple “Why sit there and die?!” The world needs your laugh, your smile, your style, your swag, your voice, your opinion, your intelligence, and your presence just to name a few. Make each minute count! See you at your top!
Our focus as humans has primarily been on natural resources. We could argue that non renewable resources are more specifically the world focal points, but definitely resources.
One thing that we must agree on is the fact that the this damaged earth cannot remain forever. Not only will earth not remain, but so is the reality of being a human.
The greed of men, though seemingly uncontrollable, is not slowing. It is therefore our responsibility to value every second and moment that we are on earth. Don’t be anxious in your movement, but move with urgency to complete every assignment!
The blogging community is wonderful for accountability and encouragement. Through the responses and feedback, I self-published my first book of poetry. During the blogging I also noticed how fulfilling it was to motivate and build up individuals. I became obsessed with witnessing the growth of my fellow brothers and sisters.
This year has to be last year on overdrive. So what I am putting into the atmosphere is a few things that must happen this year. The two that I will share or these:
1. 365 Days of posting motivational messages
2. Launch my motivational speaking business
Seeing them in writing helps me understand how easy they both are. This is my invitation for you to follow me on this journey.

Wherever you have deemed the top to be….Get there! Or at least start walking in that direction. If you are not walking in that direction, at least be pausing before moving in that direction again. Whatever you do, do not quit!
See you at your top!
If it does not line up with my destiny chances are it will not be allowed to sap me of my time. There is a destination that we refer to as “the top.” It looks different for each individual, which is what makes us individuals. As long as you get to your top, call it a victory!
Happy New Year! See you at your top!
peculiar and lonely are inextricably bound
regardless of how pessimistic that sounds
the vibrations lead back to an isolated place
that at least keeps a smile on a single face
and no emotions or money can secure pure peculiar
persons pursuing passion
never a has been
less than organic
manifestation of God
