Life rewards you when you try
To fulfill a goal
Or surpass an obstacle
Yet it punishes you
For doubting yourself
Making excuses for your delays
The secret is to fail in action which leads to success
Instead of failing within your imagination which leads to doomed hesitation

Some people die in their youth
Yet are buried at an old age
Do not allow your days to pass by in front of your eyes
You are never too late to reinvent yourself
Kill that within you
That fears and drains
In order to allow space for your inner light to shine through
I hope you stay true to you



I wonder how many times fear stopped me
From taking the leap
Clarifying a doubt
Not asking a question
Walking myself out from an opportunity
As we grow older and wiser
It becomes easier to not compare ourselves to others
But to our past
You can allow yourself to continuously be the same person
By not challenging your thoughts
Indoctrinated beliefs
Systemized fears
Take a chance on yourself
Everyday is a fresh start
Always be kind to yourself
Yet hold yourself to a higher standard
To the person you were yesterday



I gave my heart out too soon
But that is the only way I know how to love
Impulsively, deeply and with no fear
To pour myself out
Spilling secrets and sharing stories
Opened my own past while daydreaming of our future
I was to preoccupied within these two fragments of time
That I neglected our present
Creating disaster and a unique pattern
To most of my relationships
I have awakened
In spirit and soul
Yet my body moves numbly
But what is growth without pain?
I hope to love once again
And this time
I promise to savor each moment
Without being affixed to a past or future



I used to be controlled by my ego
Living under a state of dictatorship
Under attack
Always in fear
Dressed in anxiety
I always felt the need to be right
And deny the truth if it conflicted with what I knew
It is amazing how you can flourish with time
Visit the inner dwellings of your mind
And find your ego starved and defeated



We have been conditioned
We have been programmed
We have been lied to
Converted into insecure consumers
That follow a safe timeline
Everyday I want you question something
Start with anything
The first thought is what was instilled upon you
What follows is what you wish to believe

It now becomes a choice
There lies power within that
Don’t allow race, creed or religion to divide you
The only way your grow is when you shed and let go
