Warrior

img_0457

When you’re in the mist of the struggle… and you’re fighting to make the world a better place… and the darkness is starting to consume you… and the mountain starts to look too high to climb… and you’re losing faith in your ability to win the fight… and you start to contemplate giving up… step away… step away and reflect on the beauty of life… step away and think about all the things you’ve already overcome… step away and call your ride or dies… smile… laugh… love… shift your focus back to what you’re fighting for and not what you’re fighting against… sit up… put your feet firmly on the ground… put your fist in the air… rise up and scream in the name of the creator and all the ancestors that laid the foundation for you to be where you are… believe in your mind… understand with your heart… know with your soul that you can’t be stopped!!! Let’s go!!!! The Universe Needs You!!! ~ Sean King

Fearlessly and with a Smile

Tamara

I don’t see the frail body of a woman
fighting an epic battle with cancer
lying in pain

I see a fighter,
a woman refusing to give up
in the face of insurmountable odds

I see a warrior,
who even in the darkest hour
continues to touch and inspire the souls
of those still needing something
to believe in with her light

I see an angel,
with a bigger than life heart
and a fill up the room beautiful smile
kissing me on the cheek
before asking me in a faint whispered tone,
to write a beautiful poem for her……
…and I heard you Tamara

I don’t see the frail body of a woman
fighting an epic battle with cancer
lying in pain

I see my sister,
a woman of passion
pouring every ounce
of her blood
into the youth
in hopes that she can rescue
at least one child’s tomorrow
from the dark caves of despair

I see my sister,
working
and praying
to give at least one
misguided youth the opportunity
to walk God’s righteous path

I see my sister,
believing
she can help at least one kid
save their dream from the oppression
of hopelessness……

I don’t see the frail body of a woman
fighting an epic battle with cancer
lying in pain

I see a friend of 20 years,
a wonderful mother who has
always been there for her children
no matter what life threw at her

I see a lady,
carrying herself with humility
and grace
illuminating compassion
from her every pore

I see a woman,
of genuine kindness
and love
providing consistent support
even in the face
of her own struggles

I see a warrior,
refusing to be a victim of circumstance
living her life with dignity
a shining example of
how to keep your head up
no matter the challenge
you’ve been called to face

I see a queen,
giving the world
an up close and personal
look at how a woman
can serve as the foundation
of her family
while simultaneously uplifting youth in the community
and fighting her own personal battle
with breast cancer

I don’t see the frail body of a woman
fighting an epic battle with cancer
lying in pain

I see a hero
a role model
a shining example of how
our young women should approach
life…

Fearlessly and with a smile…

All I see is a fearless woman
all I see is a fearless woman
who knows God,
not man
will always have the final word…

God bless you Tamara

Sweet Taste of Freedom (A Sunday Freewrite)

Free

I picked the lock to the chains they built for me,
My soul has been forever tainted by the sweet taste of freedom

I stepped outside of the cage and discovered me,
There’s no way I’ll ever give up the sweet taste of freedom

The rays of love have shined their light on me,
Why in the world would I let go of the sweet taste of freedom

I discovered a power I didn’t know existed in me,
I’ll do everything in my power to hold on to the sweet taste of freedom

They’re lying traps in an attempt to capture me,
I’ll never go back to that place before I had the sweet taste of freedom

They’ll try to assassinate my hope and take my dreams from me,
Even then they’ll never separate me from the sweet taste of freedom

The whole Universe has conspired to free me
I’m a warrior, using the weapon of love to protect the sweet taste of freedom.
