SHE IS DRAWN:
SHE IS DRAWN FROM HIS INNER BEING
HIS AWAKENING , HIS EMBRACE, HIS LIGHT
SHE IS HIS HUMILITY TO HOLD, HIS STRENGTH
TO BUILD FROM THE PIT OF HIS SOUL
SOMETHING SOLID , SOMETHING PURE
SHE IS HIS VISION , HIS PASSION, HIS HOPES
HIS DREAMS. WITH HER LOVE HE EXCELS
SHE IS HIS MUSE , HER SPIRIT RUNS
THROUGH HIS VEINS.. SHE IS HIS REFLECTION
THAT SPARKLES IN THE NIGHT
SHE IS THE PIECES TO HIS PUZZLE
SHE IS HIS DEVOTION THE ESSENCE THAT
SMOOTHS THE PAIN, WIPE HIS TEARS AWAY
SHE IS HIS BEAUTIFUL JOY
SHE IS ONE OF GOD’S GREATEST CREATIONS
MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD MADE JUST FOR
HIM SO HE NEVER FEELS ALONE
SHE IS THE ONE THAT FUELS HIS HEART TO PROTECT
AT ANY COST
SHE IS HIS LOVE AND SHE IS HIS THEY ARE GROUNDED
A BINDING FORCE IN PERFECT HARMONY
SHE IS DRAWN FROM HIS INNER BEING
HIS AWAKENING , HIS EMBRACE , HIS LIGHT
SOARING TOGETHER , FOREVER IN THE ETERNITY OF LIFE
I am intimate with the darkness but I prefer the light and do not keep that a secret.
I share like food with my friends for it would selfish to keep it.
A smile is rarely given but mostly shared.
an extension of my humanity is sharing my Bliss.
I will one day be only be a memory so a light in someone’s eye instead of a thorn in in someone’s side is what I decide.
Dear Single Sistahs,
I am writing this letter to my Single Sistas who desperately desire a relationship, to those whose biological clocks are ticking, to those who are at the end of a relationship, to those who feel as though they will always be a bridesmaid.
id and never a bride, to those who are currently playing the dating game, on a hiatus from it or have simply retired from it, to those who are moving out and moving on, to those who fear being alone, to those who are settling for less, to those who are divorced and refuse to open their hearts, and finally to those who have lost a love, and feel as though they can never love again.
I write this letter to each and every one of my Single Sistas to encourage and lift your hearts, minds and spirits to let you know that being single is not a curse; but it is a celebration of a season often short-lived and over looked by seeking out a relationship. As I write this letter to all of you I want to let yo
u know that this time of singleness that you have is a gift that should not be taken lightly.
Your season of singleness has a distinct purpose, and it is not to seek a relationship with the immediate hopes of marriage, but it is to build a profound, individual and distinct relationship with your Creator and yourself. This is the time in your life where you can discover who you are, why you were created, and what you should be doing at this particular time in your life.
Being single is a valuable journey in life we often take for granted because we have often been led to believe that if we are not in a promising relationship, engaged or married by a certain age then something must be mentally, physically or emotionally wrong with us and our value as an individual seems to decrease.
However, what many people fail to realize is that being single is a part of life that should be celebrated and honored as much as marriage. This stage in life should be celebrated as much as marriage because this is the time of life where the knowledge of who you are as an individual grows daily. This is the time where you find out who you truly are and stand firm on that knowledge so when the time comes for a relationship you will remain who you are and not morph into who someone else wants you to be.
I know it gets hard sometimes when we see couples holding hands, walking, and out on dates; and I know it is particularly hard when a friend or family member gets engaged and asks you to play a part in their wedding festivities! I also know it’s hard when we see a woman who is not half the woman we (you) are with not only a fine man, but a good one! Hell, it’s even hard to see Facebook and Twitter posts about someone recently engaged to be married! I know all of these things are difficult because as I write this letter to all of my Single Sistas, I am writing it to myself as well.
Close your eyes and listen then open ‘see’ with an open mind for music transcends.
Music cannot be seen.
It moves you and your moods.
It is as Universal as the Soul is intrinsic to the transient nature of the Spirit’s journey via the Human body.
I do not know how to play any instruments but the gift of those that is their music.
I cannot fly but enjoy watching the birds do what comes natural to them.
I cannot swim but enjoy the ocean/lakes/water falls/ponds for my body is mostly water and I want to be close to that which is close to me.
I cannot hold my girl but I caress her with my words and are they not the lyrics of the soul as the heart keeps a beat?
Life only happens once here on earth but if you ‘touch’ many with your images and kind words yours will make a difference in others.
Words are echoes of the mind’s attempt to communicate and the ears hear but when a Soul speaks the heart listens.
Being deep with a thought has never been my purpose, my purpose has always been to get a deeper understand of the thought! Getting confirmation from those beautiful souls that walk this journey as I do is a great feeling, yet it’s never been my priority, confirmation from my creator will always hold that number one spot, but being able to touch someones heart in a positive way is the greatest feeling of all because regardless of what I’ve been through I understand that a gift can only be given or received when and if God wants it to happen.
