Love Tsunami

Bring your smiles
Bring your positive attitudes
Bring the beauty of God’s creation

Let us create a Tsunami of love
That will roll under
Over the top of
Right through the negativity

Until the world has been replenished
With goodness,

Until there is nothing left
Except Light
Life
and Love

Africa, Where Are You?

I couldn’t escape
Your hook captured me
Right off the coast
The boat ride was dramatic
The waters, turbulent

I lay exhausted
In a new environment
Comforted only by the tranquility
Of your shores
My life depended on your mercy

Strange sensations
As foreign fingers
Caressed me
We stared
Helplessly
Our destiny
Predetermined

The Fisherman and
The captured Fish
Both with mouths to feed
You unhooked me
You stared into my eyes
We were almost out of time
My mouth gaped wide open

For a brief moment
You understood
I too, am God’s creation
You threw me back in the sea
Feeling like you did the right thing
It was too late
I was already lost

Africa
Where are you?

I’m Thankful For…

With so many blessings to be thankful for, I’ll be celebrating thanks for the rest of my life.

For starters, I’m thankful for God, my family, and all of my friends from childhood through adulthood.

I’m thankful for my friends from California to New York, and other parts of the world including South Africa, India, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Germany, Haiti, Belize, and everywhere else where my people are at.

I’m thankful for everyone who has ever inspired me to be a better person in any capacity.

I’m thankful for everyone who’s working to uplift human beings all over the world or who live for causes bigger than themselves.

I’m thankful for all the wonderful people I haven’t met yet who will be influential in my life someday.

Thank you for all that you are and all that will be.
