ACT 1. Book of Poems: Poetic Hustle

Dear Readers,

Over the past while, I have written poems, lyrics and stories. Literature that is inspired by my truths, my history and my journey. My struggles and achievements that have brought me to the state of mind that I am living in today.

I will be publishing portions of “Act 1. A Book of Poems: Poetic Hustle” via my blog.

I will share excerpts of my book, when I feel it’s the right time to do so.

I will begin today with various thoughts, poems and lyrics that resonate with my mind, my strength, my truths and my continued climb.

There is no order to my writing. No system in place.

These are my thoughts. Organic. Random. Free.

Theses are moments that I hope will resonate with you, and maybe even give you enlightenment and courage.

I begin.

TWENTY-EIGHT

Do something that makes you feel uncomfortable.

NO to idling.

NO to remaining in your comfort zone.

YES to feeling uncomfortable.

YES to bravery.

YES to courage.

YES to you.

FORTY-FOUR

Be sensitive to what you see.

Be sensitive to what you hear and read.

Your capture,

Your rendering,

Your interpretation, might change someone’s world.

Open your eyes.

Observe.

SEVENTY-ONE

Nobody has lived Today.

Make it Count.

EIGHTY-NINE

We have important imperfections.

I watched you.

I learned from you.

I listened you.

You taught me who not to be.

You taught me who to be.

Woman.

Wife.

Mother.

THIRTY-TWO

Watch who crosses your path in life.

Everyone’s presence has a teaching.

Everyone’s interaction has a meaning.

Good or bad.

Observe and learn.

TWENTY-SIX

Don’t look back.

Not even in the rear view mirror.

Be grateful for the struggle.

Light comes from struggle.

Light comes from growth.

Light comes from challenge.

Light comes from life’s teachings.

Light is bright, bold and fearless.

Look forward.

Look ahead.

TWENTY-TWO

Don’t fear sitting alone.

Don’t fear standing alone.

You become comfortable,

Being with yourself.

Ease.

SEVENTEEN

Can’t start?

Try.

Take a step forward.

For yourself, and no one else.

Go.

SIXTEEN

Don’t count down,

Count UP.

Count UP to Fearlessness.

Count UP to Limitless.

Look UP.

SIXTY-TWO

Your silence,

Does not discourage me.

EIGHT

Embrace the Extraordinary,

Embrace the Unknown,

Embrace the Fear,

Step into the New,

Step into the What If,

Step on the Insecurities.

Crush the No.

Embrace the GO.

TWENTY

Experience with Purpose.

TWENTY-SEVEN

There is never one path.

There is never one direction.

There is never one way.

There are multiple directions, paths and ways.

Each one is unique to you.

Find your path and,

Do it your way.

EIGHTEEN

Invest in you mind.

Invest in your spirit.

Invest in your talent.

Invest in YOU.

In Silence,

She breathes.

Can you hear her?

I want to share this with you.

I don’t want you to know it’s me.

Is that okay?

There were two.

FORTY-ONE

I grew in solitude.

It was safer that way.

FORTY-TWO

I wrote letters to you,

But I never sent them.

I re-played situations in my mind,

But I never shared them.

And I never will.

Too late.

FIFTY-THREE

Stop with the false narrative.

Enough.

Eject the re-play.

Stop and Erase.

ONE

Acknowledging our Beautiful Imperfections,

Is what makes the spirit, Human.

Vulnerable.

Being able to accept and embrace the Positive and the Negative.

There is no Perfection to the Human Being.

Our Difficulties makes us Humble, make us Real.

Through Pain, we overcome Negative Adversity.

We Acknowledge.

Awareness of our Challenges and Struggles.

We Learn.

I wish I could stop the world from turning,

So that I could love you more.

Love from your Soul,

Without expecting anything in Return.

Covered in a Blanket,

Of  Love and Support.

Breathe.

NOTE from the Author: Poetry has fluidity. A rhythm that I’m drawn to. I can express my thoughts, my experiences and my mindset in an intimate dance of words. Poetry in my performance.
