Family Drama

Family Drama

As the holiday time comes to mind.
I am not looking forward to it.
It’s because during last Christmas.
My family had an argument.
It caused great tension and despair.
I shouted the words, I don’t care.
And now we all have doubt.
We don’t believe things will work out.

Am I seeing the glass half empty?
Does it need to be filled?
What will happen to my loved ones?
Will I choose to forgive?
Thanksgiving is perfect for this.
I can connect with my family again.
I will find a solution that’s positive.

Releasing anger is a better way to live.

Where are you my one?

I can see you
Your image is in my head
We met in my dreams
Although we’ve never met

I can envision your beauty
In many ways it turns me on
I feel this so strong
This feeling can’t be wrong

I can picture us together side by side
You’re everything to me, my heart is open wide
I can see us talking about so many things
I can see us picking out our wedding rings

You’re the one for me and I am for you
The spark we feel gives away the clues
When I’m around you, I can’t help but smile
You complete me; I want us to have a child

The love that we feel it is so rare
The passion that we feel makes our eyes glare
When we finally meet, this will be our truth

Where are you my one, where do I find you?

Self-control can be a long journey
Sometimes going one way, sometimes going another
When the energy becomes so strong
Sustaining on the road can be long

The path to self-control is continuous
The never ending phase creates experience
For when you’ve mastered one level and your rest is on the way
Another wave of obstacles interrupts your day

Then you realize you have more learning to do
You can’t fool self-control even if you tried too
For right when you think it no longer holds you
You will find that thinking is not so true

I would be safe to speak a doctrine full of instructions
On how to maintain and keep from self-destructing
The first lesson of lessons would be
For you to focus on you and I on me

For when we focus on edifying ourselves
We will truly be on that road to excel
Then I would say what is next is to learn some wisdom
For he who is wise will pay real close attention

And the wise will listen and apply what they’ve learned
But the fool will treat the knowledge as if it’s absurd
So why reject the things that will quench your thirst
With the right kind of power, your fate will be reversed

For the faith unbound is one that can’t be tamed
Starting from within is how you will be changed
This is truly a blessing and a real new beginning
There will be no regressing, there will be no ending

So the rest of the lessons will be learned through fate
For sometimes our experience is the only true way
So I wish you much success as your battle unfolds
On your destiny and your journey to conquer self-control

Beginning to Fall

This is a poem from the book, ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''

Beginning To Fall

We had just had a fight
Both of us were fuming and mad
We decided to talk
We expressed the feelings we had
We talked about how we felt
Then as we were sitting in the car
We both were trying not to look at each other
Have we taken things too far?

And then something happened
We grabbed each other’s hand
We both broke down
And expressed our romance
I told you how I felt
And you did the same
You told me I was a piece of you
And in your heart I’ll always remain

I couldn't match the power
Of what you said with your words
But I felt the same as you did
I knew we were still in love
But our circumstances changed
And staying together created unrest
We needed to end based on logic
Separating was for the best

I didn't want to us end
We both still loved each other with our all
Why did life do this to us?
At that time, we were beginning to fall

Reconnecting to Your Energy

This is a poem from the book ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''

Reconnecting to Your Energy

It’s been a long time
Since I've heard your voice
You were on my mind
Reconnection was a possible choice

You contacted me out of the blue
It was sudden out of thin air
I don’t know what to think of you
Do I want to take it there?

We decided to meet up
To see how our energies would sync
I thought I was over you
But now all these feelings are coming over me

I don’t want to be stupid and rush into this
I don’t want to repeat our past
I want to get to know you like a first date
Maybe we can take a different path

I’m open to reconnecting
As long as the bad things don’t repeat
We both had some growing to do
Is this the right time for you and me?

This Love is Taking Over Me

This is a poem from the book ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''

This Love is Taking Over Me

I’ve been sitting here all alone
Just thinking about you coming home
It’s only been a few hours since we’ve touched
But baby my heart is missing you so much

It’s hard to concentrate with my time
I can’t get you off my mind
I’m thinking about what you said when you were leaving
You admitted being in love and there was no questioning

It shocked me because I was thinking the same thing
I’m ready for you to move in; I want to give you a ring
Although you have your home and I have mine
You’re always over here all the time

We’re like a married couple with the way that we act
I always look forward to you coming back
Your clothes are here and it’s like you’ve moved in
You’ll be back tonight and I can’t wait until then

This love is taking over me
Is this real or is this a dream?
Our emotions come so intensely
I want you right here, next to me

When we’re together I feel so free
But when we’re apart it’s hard to sleep
The feelings are mutual I do understand
I’m going to do my best to be a good man
