I want to hear, “you’re beautiful” sometimes

Because I know I am

Inside and Out

But it’s a selfish desire

To want you to say it

See, I believe I’m a goddess 

Perfect in every movement

Flawless with every word

Pristine in appearances

But within lies a secret

Of what I hear in my head

you’re a fraud

you’re built funny 

you’re dumb

you’re not really attractive

Too many variations

Of insults and disrespectful vernacular 

Said in whispers

When no one’s around

I need to hear, “you’re beautiful” sometimes

Because I know I am

In personal and business life

But it’s a selfish desire

To want you to know it

See, I have a nurturing spirit

Loves with all my heart

Full of great ideas

So much potential 

But within are the lies

Of what I tell myself

you’re a bad mother

you’re horrible at relationships

you’re a failed entrepreneur

you’re not that bright

Massive insecurities

Bred by years of trauma

Done in shadows

When no one’s watching

I must tell myself, “you’re beautiful” sometimes 

Because I know I am 

Through good and bad 

But it’s a selfish desire

To want you to care

See, I am self-aware

The negative self talk

Mediocre self-image

Totally self-conscious 

Cuz within I know the truth 

Of who I really am

you’re gifted

you’re what people need

you’re headed for greatness

you’re not really incapable

Stand with confidence

In spite of my pain

Held to the light

When no one’s to blame

I’m beautiful 

I know I am 

From here to the end of time

And it’s a selfless desire

To want you to be beautiful 

See, I’ve been through enough

Life has its disappointments 

On the verge of giving up

Cast doubt aside

Cuz I know the reality

Of what you need to hear

you’re smart

you’re unique

you’re beautiful

you’re not really lost

A guiding message

Of life and love

Spread your wings

There’s no one to stop you

Use My Words

No matter who you are

No matter where you live

No matter what you believe

Or do not believe

To be true about life

And the things we do

The things we choose

Let my words

Be seen as a way

For you to see better

See brighter

Be free to be true to

Who you are

Who you want to be

No one determines what you will be when you leave

When you draw your last breath

You will not be able to blame anyone

For your faults

For your success

For what you’ve done with the precious gift

We all were given

With my present I give you

My words

Anything I say

Is what I’ve felt

Is what I’ve seen

Is what I’ve been

And what I’ve become

Full of bad decision

And good choices

Knowing about your darkness

That may haunt your dreams

Through my words

No matter what you were

Yesterday

Today you are someone

Today you are important

Today you are given a chance

To be what you would like to be

If you don’t have them to speak

Use my words

Humanity Will Surely Prosper

If all the monies of the world

were put together.

And all those who call themselves rich

were to build together.

Naturally, humanity will surely prosper.

If all the countries of the world

Came together

And all the differences

were learned together.

Obviously, humanity will surely prosper.

If all the people

Rise together

Then humanity will surely prosper

If all embraced positivity

Grow together

And humanity will surely prosper.

If all the world’s resources

Were shared together

And all the news of the world

was told together

Humanity will surely prosper

Thought Provoking

Your eyes get me every time
First thing I see in my mind
Can’t get enough of your smile
Sit back and daydream a while
Your hands on the small of my back
It’s easy to feel you when I relax
Laughter echoes in my ear
Constantly wishing you were near
All the happiness you brought
It’s all embedded inside my thoughts
Never expected to fall so deep
Await to see you again when I sleep
