Fight

Reflection

Fight…
Fight through the tough times
Fight through the pain
Fight through life’s sucker punches
Fight through the desire to give up
Fight through the hate
Fight through the doubt
Fight through the depression
Fight through the sickness
Fight to stay on your feet
Fight until you hear the final bell
Fight until God tells you it’s okay to stop fighting

Fight…
Because quitting is for all those other people
We’re Fighters
Fighting is what we were born to do

The Best Kind (Freewrite)

8798_10151244273394014_576534341_n

The best poetry,
is the kind that’s poured
out of our hearts like libations

The kind that upholds truth
like African Griots
tracing their lineage back to ancient Kings

The kind that fights for the freedom
of the common man
like an unselfish King
who’s passion is giving freely to his people

The best poetry,
is the kind that sings the song of life
over the drumbeat of love

The kind that’s born from the place
where the beat of the heart
intersects with the rhythm of the soul
and the words Tango with our emotions

The kind that’s expressed
with the humble confidence
of a child of God,
driven by purpose
unwavering
relentless
dedicated
and embodied with truth

The best poetry,
is the kind that simply is…
pure
compassionate
hopeful
dreamy
strong
courageous
brave,
and loving
like a mother and her newborn

The best poetry,
is LOVE… 

Beautiful sunrises
and breathtaking sunsets
LOVE…

Honeybees
and hummingbirds
LOVE…

Morning breath kisses
and nighttime prayers
LOVE…
just LOVE…

What kind of poetry do I like?
I like the kind that is
LOVE…

Fear

When fear greets you, it’s important that you look straight into its eyes and don’t flinch. It’s necessary that you stand your ground without giving a single inch. When it moves forward, no matter how scared you are, it’s imperative that you respond by taking a determined step forward and let it be known that you are calling its bluff and will not back down to its loud bravado. Fear is a bully, and like most bullies if you succumb to its will, it will punk you every opportunity it gets. But if you stand your ground, if you fight back, if you keep pushing forward; fear will be powerless against you. ~ Sean King
