Believe in Yourself!

have-faith-believe-in-yourself

As I’ve become older and more self-reflective, I’ve learned the differences in self-centeredness and self-reflection. Wisdom, in time, reveals growth. Producing growing requires willingness for open-mindedness and embracing new perspectives without biases.

Reaching a place of contentment necessitates open-mindedness to achieving comfort in a place where success is measured by accomplishment rather than need for validation.

Do you have any goals or dreams bigger than yourself? You should. Keep dreaming until you see the goals you desire manifested.

What stops us from achieving our goals? One reason, a lack belief in your in ability.  You will miss the mark sometimes, but it’s never too late to aim at the target again.

Awhile ago, I heard an instructor say, “children think they can and learn they can’t.” This is a powerful statement. It’s true, generally, children are fearless with minimal reservations about their inabilities. Most children innately doesn’t have a sense of boundaries. They are trained and taught their boundaries. For this reason, a small child would touch a hot stove, unless taught otherwise.

Like an eager child, you must renew your mind to develop a sense of inner-knowing, “I can” and resist the hesitation to retreat to saying “I can’t.”

Start the renewing process of believing in your potential. You can reach your fullest potential!

Believe in Yourself! Pursue your passion, dreams, and goals!

These Eyes

10087336
 

These eyes have seen my people shackled,

cramped in ships, witnessed masters snatch

babies from mothers’ arms, and the auctions of

husbands and fathers.

These eyes have seen the face of torment,

stared into the eyes of hatred,

witnessed mouths shut against injustices-

and uttered prayers in silence.

These eyes have witnessed ears deafen

from loud wails of treacherous acts-

forced to see souls tossed in the

belly of satan’s abyss-

These eyes have flowed tears enough to fill rivers

and watch predators ran rampant like scavengers-

these eyes have seen blood baptisms of my people

since the days of my youth.

These eyes have looked to the heavens,

I’ve questioned how long others would capturers

be allowed to capture some like prey-

those who despicable acts to them are like child’s play-

their acts of terrorism like first nature.

I could only lament in my spirit.

I could only pray, dream often.

Dream dreams where visions of hope

expand and create new territories-

offering a place my people could escape.

I’d died one death if it was the price to pay

to set all people free-

because these eyes have seen

more than a soul should see.

WHERE DID YOU COME FROM? 

HOW DID YOU GET IN?

DID SOMEONE GAVE YOU THE KEY?

HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR WAY?

ARE YOU HERE TO ROB?

INTEND TO CAUSE HARM? –

WASN’T IT ENOUGH TO CAUSE HEART BROKE?

OR, IS IT YOU DON’T CARE?

`

IS THIS THE RETURN OF HEARTACHES-

FROM THE ARROWS THROWN BY YOU?

DO YOU TAKE PLEASURE SEEING THE HEART PIERCED OPEN-

WHILE YOU WATCH IT SWALLOWED BY SORROW?

THESE MOMENTS I REMEMBER WELL –

RESURRECTED MEMORIES I WISHED WERE DEAD.`

 

IS THIS A DREAM AMONG MANY?

WILL EYES OPENED MAKE YOU AT EASE TO LEAVE AGAIN?

IS THIS MANIFESTATION OF MEMORIES ONCE CHERISHED –

THE RETURN OF PLEASURE AND BLISS SHARED?

OR IS THIS TORMENT, AND PAIN I DREAD-

THE RETURN OF PROMISES CRUSHED LIKE COLD ICE?

 

IF THIS IS A DREAM, PLEASE DON’T WAKE ME.

BUT, IF I SHOULD AWAKEN,LET THIS BE THE PROMISES

YOU FAILED TO KEEP.

SO, STATE YOUR CLAIM, SPEAK TO ME.`

TIME WILL REVEAL IF THESE ARE THE THINGS I FEAR

OR  IF THESE ARE THINGS I HOLD DEAR.

ITS BEEN AWHILE,

MUCH TOO LONG.

HELLO LOVE

COME IN

ARE YOU

HERE TO STAY?
