Learn to Follow your Heart



Follow your heart and maybe someday
you will find out what it is all about.
Life is not a easy road, it is so unpredictable
that we must try to keep strong and understand
we shall have many sorrows to confront before we are
allowed to walk the road of pure knowledge.

Only the heart knows the happiness and sadness we
all must face through life, with strong faith! we can
conquer all that comes our way.

In believing in ourselves, will we have that faith to
love and continue to struggle down that road
hoping we have the knowledge to walk it
with anticipation.

Just follow your heart with deep understanding
intuition will be your guide, and you shall know
what has to be done.

(You can do what you put your mind to do, just
follow your heart) By Derena

Traffic


Traffic
the stop and go, stop and go, bumper to bumper traffic, makes me dizzy and sick,

Some folks commute more than an hour one way every day
then another hour home at the end of day going the other way

Rush hour traffic, it's just a real mess
as every day driving in the snarling mess it's a blessing to have an accident commute and no crash at best

Traffic in California gets busier and busier every year,
As the lanes get added and more and more lanes every year appear

The older I get
the traffic rush and rush, beep and beep, cut and brake inside and pass and just rude and reckless mean drivers and trying to drive safe and be the surviver, driving traffic more and more to be in it and driving in it I regret

I spent too much of my life driving in traffic
and now I just know really know that I'm just done with it

Silent Night


You know what it means to fear God,
As we try to persuade others;
Getting them to honor and laud,
And to become Christian brothers.

God already knows what we are,
And hope that you will know as well;
So we can be His shining star,
And someday in Heaven to dwell.

We are not trying to show you,
A qualification again;
Rather a chance of pride and true,
Christianity not in vain.

Then you can answer to the crowd,
Not character but appearance;
About those who are feeling proud,
Showing them of their coherence.

We are crazy because of God,
It is for you if we are sane;
Since love guides to honor and laud,
Making a mindset in the brain.

We are convinced about the fact,
That one man died for all people;
It is up to us to react,
As it is told in the Gospel.

He died for all that those who live,
Being alone living this life;
But as a means God will forgive,
For the wrongs being caused through strife.

Think not having an earthly view,
That allows you to be enticed;
Rather a heavenly construe,
A believer in Jesus Christ.

Faith in Christ as a believer,
Through Christ for your salvation;
And you will be a receiver,
Of being a new creation.

God had Jesus, who was sinless,
For taking our sin away;
Being without we are winless,
Since temptations have made us stray.

"Her Special Night"


“Her Special Night”

She had said
she’d never been
that far before
he said
that’s ok
it’s easy
she was unsure
as he tried
to get her
to take
one more shot,
a little Bacardi
“151”
will help
relax you
he said
pushing a capful
from the pint
bottle
her way
its plastic
cap
holding more than
a shot glass
she scrunches
up her nose
and shakes her
head no
“I’ve already had
three”,
“look
you came here
to party,
now
you don’t want
to drink
or do
anything else”
he tells her
giving her a
look
like she’s not
normal
she turns away
from him
“I thought you
liked talking to
me”
she said
feeling pressured
and uneasy
“can’t we just
talk?
that’s fun too”
he gives her
a bit of a
grimace
unhappy with
the way
his conquest
is going
“just take the
shot
and then we
can talk some”
peer pressure
which normally
works
well for him
isn’t,
so he turns
back to
Bacardi
a sloppier
and slower
approach
but a time
tested and
trusted one
“let’s talk
a little
then I’ll take
the shot”
the three
previous
shots
not yet
lowering
her inhibitions
instead
giving her a
boost of
self confidence
“you told me
I was special
that you loved
me”
he takes the
shot
and fills up
the cap again
“see I took one
now it’s your
turn”
“not yet”
she says
“do you love me?”
giving him a
look of
this answer is
important
he had better
get it right,
he hadn’t planned
on this much
work
he thought
he had laid
the ground work
already
at school
his blue eyes
and sparkling
smile
usually do
most of it
and an argument
where words were
involved
was not something
he fared well at
“Yes, I love you
I wouldn’t be
here with you
if I didn’t”
he knew
he could
fold back the
sheets
and get her
in them
if he could
just get a
few more
shots
into her
“ok, we talked
now it’s your
turn
to drink”
a bit of
desperation
in his voice
feeling
she might be
slipping away
“just another
shot
you promised”
he says
pulling out his
smile
and as much
charm
as he had left
in reserve
his smile
starts getting
brighter
as she reaches
for the shot
she did promise
she thinks
to herself
what’s one more
shot
this one
doesn’t burn
as much as
the others did,
he starts to
feel
more in control
things are getting
back on track
he knows
the next shot
won’t take so
much coaching
he takes one
himself
hoping to prompt
her
into taking
another
on her own
he holds out
the bottle
and the cap
to her
“I just took one”
he tells her
“give me a minute
or two”
she says
he realizes
he took his
shot
to soon after
hers
to prompt her
for another,
something
he’ll remember
for the next
girl
at the next
party,
she looks at
him
a little differently
now
his eyes
regaining that
dreamy spell
they had on
her
at school
she’s starting to
believe
she can trust
him
that he loves
her
“ok, I’m ready
for another shot”
he lunges for
the bottle
his hands
can’t get the
cap off
quick enough
spilling some
on to the
table
she giggles
at his mess
happily taking
the over flowing
shot
not feeling
anything
as it travels
downward,
her heart
turns to a
blank page
she’s starting to
think
tonight is going
to be special
she knows now
he’s meant
to be
the one,
he can’t stop
smiling
as he talks
to her
he’s sure now
he knows how
this night
is going to
end
he slides his
hand
into his left
pocket
of his jeans
checking to
make sure he
brought
those foil wrapped
packets
he always
depends on,
then
as his left
hand
was fishing
around in
his pocket
his whole world
went dark
he could already
feel
the soft tissue
around his left
eye
starting to swell
shut
as he looked
up
from the floor
through his right
eye
at a pissed off
girl
standing over
him
poised in attack
mode
“my sister,
you put the moves
on my little
F*ing sister,
she’s only 15”
he tried to
scoot away
from her
but had nowhere
to go
she swung again
at him
and caught part
of his nose
he shrank
into the corner
her little sister’s
eyes
beginning to open
and see the
true him
but unsure
as of what
to do
everything’s
happening
so fast
the Bacardi 151
spinning her world
around
but aware enough
to grab her sister
and try and
pull her
off him
and from
the room
as she starts
trying to kick
him
with her boots,
laughing now
at her big
sister’s
wild attempts
to connect
with anyone of
her limbs
and inflict more
pain on him
her sister finally
stops
and storms out
of the room
“Let’s Go!”
is all she says
she starts to
follow her sister
but then stops
and looks back
into the room
he is slouched
against the wall
left eye
completely swollen
over
not really looking
all that charming
lying there
with his left
hand
still stuck
in the pocket
of his jeans
she’s still
taking in the
whole scene
when she notices
some blood
making its way
out of his
nose
“how could I be
so F*ing Stupid”
she says
as she closes
the bedroom door
then hurries to
catch her sister,
understanding
now
that thanks to
her
big sister
she’s walking out
of that bedroom
with everything
she walked
in with…

Enter, good, exits Bad


Exit, enter,
the deepest corners of the mind.
What mystery lies within, when
did it all begin?

Some energy released in dreams,
Sometime in nightmares screams.
It's not what it may seem, but
It speaks in redundant streams.

When life seems heavy and hard.
To bare, when it seems so unfair
When people look in your direction
In loving care, we must find away
To provide and care.That is the
Time to share.

So lighten your burdens and woe, tell
Selfishness it's time to go, it can be
A time to see a how beautiful, life can
be.

A strenght, and wisdom can grow as life
Strikes its hard blows, look for the good and
Bad, and feel the wisdom to vanish the sad.
Knowing what's lives on, will reflects all we
Had.

What, was, will return to change our sorrows
to glad.our outlook is rearranged.when
The obvious is maintained unstained.
To look for comfort and joy, the mission is
Ready to guide with power that will abide.
The good Lord will be by your side!

Now those troubles will run and hide
I will walk with you on the other side!
Time and space is on a chase,keep moving
Forward then quality, you will surely face.

Imagine Your Worries


‘Imagine Your Worries’
I want you to imagine your worries, Now picture a train, Put your worries on the carriage, And give them a wave! Watch the train leave the station, With your worries inside, Taking away all of your pain, And the tears that you cried! You see, . emptying your worries, Out of you head, Helps emotional healing, The therapist said! Better out than in! Release the pain, Because holding onto emotions, Can drive you insane! You deserve to feel peace, You deserve to be free! You deserve happiness, And to be who you want to be! Don’t let feelings of pain, Shackle you in chains! Wave goodbye to the hurt and the pain! Release your hurt, And take a deep breath in! Sit with your emotions, And allow the peace to flow in! This is your time to focus on you, It’s your time to focus on all the things you can do! Just take small steps, and be kind to yourself! Because without your health there is nothing left! Written by © Wendy Roberts 18*01*2018 all rights reserved

A worthwhile part to play


A worthwhile part to play

Leave the world a better place than when
You found it, do the best you can for others
Every day. Take a moment to believe that
There's a plan, a higher scheme, in which
You have a worthwhile part to play

Bring a smile to every face that you
Encounter, wipe a tear away if there's
Chance to please. Be the one who's first
To say, take my hand I know the way
When folk are lost a little help is all
They need

Bless the lonely with your time and
Inclination, be the bright light in a
Day that drags on by. Make caring
Number one, a good deed your rule
Of thumb, let compassion, love and
Mercy be your guide
