Finding Your Way, Part III

Everything I said, every insight I had, may be entirely wrong.

Here's the thing...you have to do what is right for you, what you feel is important to who you are and what you want others to see. I have no control over interpretations based on what is seen or heard.

My mom used to say, "believe only 50% of what you see and nothing of what you hear."

    Everyday I try to learn something new and be open to new ideas. Everyday I try to be a better person than the day before. Everyday I try to teach someone something, even if small in stature.

    Do i fail some days -yes

    But I tried.

    Dean, I absolutely love that. Sometimes I feel like no one understands who I am. Like no one tries to take to time to ask questions...like you do...or take the time to read the ramblings of my heart...and that's why so many misjudge my actions or intentions. It's just heartbreaking. But what you said? that is me as well....thank you so much for sharing.

    ...taking charge of our lives means that we do not spin our wheels with impression-management. We do not try to be who and what others want us to be. It also means that we do not accept their evaluation of who we CANNOT be.

    Sometimes

    sometimes the prettiest person
    is not the most beautiful

    sometimes the nicest person
    doesn't look to be

    sometimes you can find a lift
    when you are in the lowest places

    Sometimes a free shoulder
    is worth more than a million dollars

    sometimes the kindest word
    comes from a complete stranger

    sometimes our biggest enemy
    is ourselves

    Tiny world of mine

    I look upon my tiny world
    And see the politics
    The crooks and saints

    I look upon the mountains
    and valleys
    and the vast skyline

    I see the motion
    obscure in its direction
    infinite in its power

    I see the air
    and the water abides
    sweeping all clean

    The changes I make
    provide crucial life support
    and encourage overall growth

    I am in control
    I make the choices
    And control this life

    waterfall

    The glowing moon sits above
    Guarding its latest pearl

    As below almost in jest
    tidepools continue to whirl

    A fish has come full circle
    making its way back home

    All by himself
    but not alone

    Crackling branches
    frame this scene

    As the wind blows
    as it will always be

    a bridge stands worn not broken
    a scacred passageway

    This well traveled fish
    will struggle one final day

    ensuring his life
    was not in vain

    In creating life and losing life
    he feels no pain

    Stranger

    He walks alone
    down a crowded street
    oblivious to those around

    with one hand
    he swoops his hair
    then tries to pat it down

    wrinkles and scars
    show his time on earth
    A limp accents his stride

    A curious citizen
    drives alongside him
    but he refuses to ride

    he takes a drag
    off his full flavor smoke
    filterless and sour

    In lesser times
    when he was young
    this man he would not cower

    His back bent forward
    years of work leave it
    tired and sore

    his belt has notches
    that were not there
    his knife will make more

    his shoes worn and tattered
    with many miles
    tell a tale

    He has no home
    no family
    he recieves no mail

    another mile passes by
    as years accompany it
    uncelebrated in their death

    staggering blundering
    blinded by lifes light
    he takes his last breath

    Noone will mourn him
    no flowers at his grave
    to waste away as he did

    Worms the only witness
    the skies his only kin
    another soul this world has rid

    Freestyle rap-it's ok to laugh just not too loud!

    I spit rhymes
    like I shoot
    don't sit w/ friends
    in a group
    or you'll all wind up dead
    quilty feelings in my head
    f--- what I said
    the floor turns red
    as i begin to dread
    from the island which I fled
    because i killed my homie
    now people that know me
    think that they owe me
    or try to control me
    but they only slow me
    away from my riches
    i like people except
    when they call me inept
    I'm about to erupt
    if you call me corrupt
    as a young pup
    my Pops grew me up
    in the city of cuse
    recluse off the huse
    whats a huse?
    who gives a f---
    i just made it up
    dream vacation is...

    i especially like this:

    The changes I make
    provide crucial life support
    and encourage overall growth

    I am in control
    I make the choices
    And control this life
