Thoughts are like clouds…

Thoughts are like clouds that float by in my mind.

One by one I let them move me to action,

or submerse me deep in pain.

I hold on to them because I believe they define me.

They are me, and I am they.

Thoughts are like clouds that float by in my mind,

Each one tells me a story, reminds me of my history,

or tries to protect me.

When my heart is full, they still carry on, with little concern about their impact.

Anger, annoyance, frustration, anxiety, worry, you name it.

Thoughts are like clouds that float by in my mind.

The sooner I learn to let them go, the sooner they’ll stop hurting me.

I can select the good ones, and let the bad one float.

When I feel mad or sad, I know it was a bad thought I had.

The story they tell is not always true.

Because thoughts are like clouds that float by.

Where they come from, I do not know.

When I let one thought go, a new one will arise.

When I hold on too tightly, I will miss the others passing.

Like clouds, I will let them float,

Stopping only to be observed, but no sooner I will let them go.

With curiosity, I study what they came to teach me.

But now I know, they do not define me.

I am not them, and they are not me.

They are my fears, my hopes, my dreams…

If I am still enough, I can see which ones are good or bad for me.

Thoughts are like clouds, and their only job is to float through my mind…

Today

Today, we get to try again.

Forgetting the hurt and the pain,

We get to decide what we want.

Today we are a new person,

Without the scars of yesterday.

Some wounds don’t seem to heal as fast as we would like them.

But today is one more day in the healing process.

And today we get to take new steps.

The mistakes are forgotten.

The memories, erased.

This day we get to create,

New plans, new dreams, new destinies.

We get to take action and move ahead, today.

One step at a time.

Because today, we get a new shot at life.

The echoes of hope

Written by: My friend, James Golding

I rise today,

Conscious and reflective of yesterday.

I thought …that as we travel through the canyon of life,

Each day we hear echoes.

These are milestones of how far we have traveled,

Reminders that we have a distance yet to go.

The echoes tell we have gone far, and gives hope we can go further.

Still those echoes never say how much further we have to go,

How much time is allotted,

Nor, whether we need to go at all.

Thinking…

If you think you are beaten, you are; 
If you think you dare not, you don’t. 
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t, 
It is almost a cinch you won’t. 

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost; 
For out in this world we find
Success begins with a person’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are; 
You’ve got to think high to rise. 
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go 
To the stronger or faster man; 
But sooner or later the person who wins 
Is the one who thinks he can!

Today

I’m thinking about you,
the things you’d say,
the way you’d make me laugh,
I’m thinking about you,
today.

My dreams and fantasies are many,
Today, I’m wishing that they come true-
Like a day spent with you on a beach,
or a night in the countryside-
watching the stars.
I’m imagining us holding hands-
while engaging in an exchange of words,
We peer into each others eyes, to find the truth within
The words we share are deeper than what we think,
And today, I will know the truth.

I’m dreaming about you,
the way you make me feel,
the tears you’ve made come to my eyes,
I’m dreaming about you,
today.

I wonder what it is-
that I admire most about you
If I look deep enough, would I find it in your eyes?
I recall many things-
Your usage of words convey eloquence.
Your ambitious nature that drives your every move.
Your robust build that reveals your inner strength.
Your inquistive persona that pulls out every detail within.
Are all astonishing qualities, I like in a man-
I like in you.
Today, I wish to know what you think-

I’m wondering about you-
Wondering about what you’re doing,
What you’re wearing,
I can’t help but wonder about you,
today.

Do you think of me?
In every moment, in every chance,
in every breathe that you take-
Do you imagine me, next to you?
A chance to see my laugh lines,
the twinkle in my eyes,
the dimple in my cheeks-
Do you wish to see me, a God-made creature,
who was made for you, resting in your arms,
today?

So, I’m curious-
Dieing to find out-
Are your thoughts intertwined with my thoughts?
Your wishes, my fantasies, are they somehow knit
Today, my curiosities are running wild-
Too fast for my own mind to catch up,
But my heart is destined to find out,
And I simply must know the truth,
Today.

The Wedding Night

The days I wake up,
I’m still lost in a dream about you-
Like the neverending story or the
song about a lamb that just keeps going and going-
The thoughts vary and I never get bored,
I dream about a life of pleasure with no pain,
what more could a man want from a woman he loves.

I dream of resting my head between your bossom,
the same ripe fruits that solomon sings about,
It’s nice to have two of my own-
Life cannot be the same without you, girl
I have a special melody in my head
I play it off and on when my thoughts rest on you.

You make me feel special,
Everytime I imagine those beautiful brown eyes-
Those curvy thighs,
And the plump buttock-
The thought that God created such a gift for me,
wrapped in white, makes me shed tears of joy.

I have waited long enough,
and I can hardy wait for tonight,
The excitment is killing me,
I’m going to unwrap you girl,
And make love on our wedding night
I’m going to whisper in your ear,
all the things that I’ve been meaning to tell you-
And everynight I will send a prayer to God,
Thanking him for bringing you into my life,
And for making my dreams a reality.
