Eternal Promise

O lady of my heart, hear my cries.

Let not this yearning heart starve without your presence.

Keep me interwoven within your rivers.

Amidst your hills and pasture, let my weary soul find rest.

Brought by passing time and sought through voyages leading to shipwrecks.

An open sea, though the deep has helped me find solace.

Your silk and ever flowing waves brings me to shore.

Decisions made in destination of the unknown.

The light from the heavens guides my path.

You forever are the vagrant rose.

Bringing scents of senses I revel in, bathing new pleasantries in thought were forgotten.

Blissful endeavors beyond reason marvel at your mere sight and reality awakens to your beauty.

Lady of my heart, forever yours, hold me close and I shall be in eternal promise.

Studying a Piece of Me

I’ve been extremely busy. Work has had me working to the point that as soon as I get home, I just want to lay in bed and talk to my girl.

It’s crazy how life moves around in such ways that you you perceive it all to be just a fluid motion. I was looking back at past events and a lot has been on my mind because of it all.

I’ve been writing poetry more frequently but I haven’t posted it just yet. I’ve been trying to get it sold and published on a site. But I also haven’t just keep anyone that follows me, “up to date”.

Life’s been good. No grand issues or unresolved tensions masquerading as smiles. My OCD tried to peer in and I was worried for a moment how I would be perceived by my girlfriend. It tends to scare people. Some people cannot differentiate between short temper and OCD. For those who know about OCD, you know that it isn’t simply keeping organized and etc, there are different kinds.

With all of this being said, I will push through and keep writing. If you like what you read and wish to see more, communicate with me about something I post, just contact me or comment. I’m always happy to engage readers. I will continue to post my art as well as my words interwoven to create a reflection of who I am.

Looking Glass

I’m not that difficult to figure out. To some, it would seem that I am a walking paradox. What can truly be drawn from me just by an encounter? Most people think I am serious or reserved, quiet. It is true that I don’t really engage people as often as it would seem. I do work at a customer service based retail store, yet I could be classified as an introvert, though I’m an ambivert. All of this being written, it brings me once again to truly analyze who I am as an individual.

We are our biggest and harshest judges. My life was never sunshine, rainbows, and puppy dogs-though I did have a couple of puppies. This is all the case with me recently. I have been contemplating where I am now. Indo not regret my choices because it has allowed me to grow and meet certain people. What I do know is that my life could be better than what it is now.

We all look through a looking glass and ask the simple questions of life. We truly don’t see or recognize our worth as individuals, unless it is acknowledged by others. In this day and age we have a twisted notion that social media validates who we are. Which in all honesty is completely worthless, social media highlights that is. Who you are can only truly be seen by those around you physically as well as yourself. Whatever image you wish to portray on anything else, especially digitally, will only hold the weight of vanity. Though in some forms it can be percieved as reality, because of the fruits being visibly seen by others but it can only truly be validated by yourself. In the end, you know the truth and if you live a lie, yojr life would seem empty and void and seek the validation elsewhere.

I have learned to appreciate who I have become and though I can look at the looking glass and ask questions, I know I can change what I see. This should all be the case for the world we now face, when we look away from the looking glass and out to the world. Know who you are and what you see. What is reflected in the eyes of others is not what is reflected in your own.

Into the Storm

Clouded hues masked in light. Nights surrounded within an ominous sight. Ripples across space and time. Upon a dream of oceans, riding tides. Echos seen as tales of an epic voyage sought. The darkened horizon casts its shadows. Reflection moving unclear and blurred. Wavering weather wrestling whispers, whistling wishes watered with windy waves. Sailing through, bound to what is beyond, Into the storm.

Forever Legend

I’ve been hearing women trying to be trap queens. While men no longer gentle, trying to be kings. All Kongs, trying to be gods. 3 am, covered in sweats, thoughts running around blocks. So watch me quick to move hands around clocks. I still work, trying to survive above dirt. Seeing racism still prevalant, though we all came from the same continent. Our crowns are hidden and forgotten. My allegiance is not pledged to a president. Let the truth and love stay relevant. The precedent, we’re all kings and queens. Our opinions infused with emotions streams. I rather be human than a monster. The facades marked by others. I don’t want to numb the pain, I rather embrace it. Revealing my strength is the control I have within my spirit. I am a forever legend. So if I die young, know of my existence, I’m here to help awaken and bring back the vision.

Fueling the Fire

I like to take time and discuss various topics with certain people. There are the rare moments I have where I truly let my opinions known. I try to hold and portray the truth, as much as I can. I found myself discussing before the various things that go on in this world. We have the art industry, music, marketing, and etc.

I was talking with a friend of mine and he concluded music nowadays sounds like a nursery rhyme and people are stuck in a trancelike state. Fueled by dopamine released during the whole process, plus chemicals we ingest or partake, there is no surprise the state we are in as people, complete slow degradation. But we “have” to call it art, only cause it sells or is the prominent choice of the sheeple, that is society today.

We continuously return to our primal nature, fed to activate the same drives, then claim we are free, fueled by hate and division, imprisoned by desires, still clinging to the past while never truly changing the present, to impact our future. This is the state of the world we live in. We have returned or embraced the stoic ideology, the Hellenistic system, while losing our humanity, and believing ourselves to be gods in the end.

It is very easy to hold to our own opinions. If I was to continue to hold to my own, I would hardly associate myself with people. Most people would try to discredit some of the things I discuss if I presented the conspiracy approach, though I am displaying truth, because they’ve been trained to automatically stereotype people based on what they are taught through media and school. The conspiracist is seen as a tin foil nut or the Christian as a fool.

There is a general programming being done that we are unaware of. Without us really thinking about it, we are influenced by society, culture, and what is being instilled is an agenda. It isn’t a theory but what we can see with the passing of time. The Romans would use “bread and circuses”. While as well, ae are slowly being taught that emotions or to “care” means we are weak. Men are shown as strong and courageous with no emotions wavering over them. But this is not the case, to feel is to be human; to have our own thoughts and feelings, is what separates us as individuals and what truly allows us to come together as a society is how, based upon what is fed into us or we learn, can benefit or hurt those around us.

We are an ever changing people, though history tends to repeat itself. We need to begin to comprehend the direction we are heading and instead of trying to set ourselves apart, come together and truly bring change, while learning our value and not letting our egos over encompass our lives. To have emotions but never become consumed by them or completely removing them. Don’t be scared to be human, accept your humanity and within all of that, see the beauty not only in yourself but others. Your individualistic attributes can benefit us all as a whole, we are people, the human race.

Abstract

Let’s lay it all down on the table. I consider painting and drawing a hobby. I didn’t go to school for it and I didn’t really make a lot of art before. I did go to school for graphic design; spent a few years doing freelance and have a substantial amount of work for portfolio. All of this being said, I now got interested in abstract art.

The style of art seems to intrigue me and it has helped me express myself. I remember my girlfriend telling me I usually stick to anime or manga style when I drew. When I picked up a job request, I designed a graphic with abstract that they wanted, since then, I continued.

All the pics I shared here are my own creation as of late. I’ve been incorporating my design and digital skills with what I wish to express using abstract. Though I do believe strongly that we don’t really hold to a set of style, it seems my work is categorized into that style.

For now, I shall grow as an artist and you guys will see my art not only through the words but a piece of art that I felt compelled to make based on the subject or poem.

Inspire and Aspire Change

Breathe in, breath out.

I am currently at work right now and the small plaque on the wall seemed to call out to me. I snapped a quick picture and the words seem to now flow from within. Inspire. We hear the word all throughout life and to see its meaning now, it has sparked “inspiration”.

As people, it is common in this day and age to bring others down. I’ve noticed that we now have become comfortable as people and bought into the mainstream news format, fear. Because of all of this, we feel safe or when others do not share our points of views, we see ourselves as to a higher standard. Not everyone is like this, but for the most part, we have been conditioned to hold to ourselves greater than our neighbor.

This brings me back to seeing the word inspire. Since the beginning of my blog, I swore it would be used to inspire others or motivate them. Not only has it been a continuously process but it has allowed me to grow as a man. Inspire is a verb, in so being the case, I take action. It is always easy to speak or post eloquent words into existence but does it hold on its own or come with a deep foundation, understanding, and etc?

What I am trying to convey is that to truly inspire others, We have to remove this egocentric behavior we hold and truly help others. Not only must we change but because of inspiration, we allow the world to kove forward as an evolving race, intended to continue to a better future. Each man, woman, and child, has a dream, we are called to accomplish these dreams. So let us not continue in rivalry or hate but come together and inspire one another as people, beyond words but action.
