heaven knows

stop comparing for comparing is exhausting start creating for creating is liberating frees those ideas trapped inside gives them a chance to have a life of their own where that life may lead heaven knows


best advice
I can give myself right now
focus on the task at hand
get lost in the moment
get over the fact
it rarely goes as planned
these opportunities don't come along
as often as you wish they would
so if you've got the chance to be great
let them see great rather than just good
and no matter what happens
always remember with every single one
of these auditions
you're one step closer
to where you need to be

brilliant ideas

for me a brilliant idea
feels like I've struck gold
and I seriously hope
that feeling never gets old
want to keep having them
those brilliant ideas
make life a brilliant adventure
never get disheartened
those times nothing seems
like a brilliant idea
know the light bulb
will eventually go on
hopefully at just the right time
with a little luck that brilliant idea
will make all my tomorrows shine

my sweet valentine

listening to love songs
the valentine's top 100
according to Alexa
love is in the air
love is everywhere
can't imagine it
not being there
in your loving embrace
in the smile on your face
that lets me know
you're so happy it was me
who turned out to be
the love of your life
just as you are mine
my sweet valentine

the magic in the mundane

kids jump in puddles
like they're the best thing ever
finding magic in the mundane
as adults it's something
we need in our lives
things that remind us
of things we wish would go away
things like this incessant rain
aren't here to bring everyone down
this isn't the only weather
raining on someone's parade
as the relentless sun beats down
on the parched desert floor
someone wishes only for water and shade
I want to find a way
to enjoy this seemingly dismal day
venture out when the adult in me
just wants to stay in
venturing out the perfect way
to stop these bland-coloured walls
from making me feel like I'm going insane
helping me find
the magic in the mundane

living in a world of possibilities

journal in my lap
Maysa on the stereo
wondering what 2018 has in store
this much I know
that world of possibilities still exists
just like the dreams of youth
that have the power to take me everywhere
lately I've had feelings of guilt
creep back into my life
feelings of guilt for not being as busy
as society expects me to be
all this time I have to spend on me
don't always use that time wisely
there I go again feeling guilty as hell
you and I both know all too well
what a huge waste of time
those kinds of feelings can be
for I am worthy of all the blessings
life affords me
struggled for too long working all the time
nothing to show for it
back then I was caught in a cycle of feeling
that was my lot in life
most certainly back then at the end of the 20th century
pessimism had a serious hold on me
thought there wasn't much I could do about it
fortunately for me in the 21st century
I made the choice to be happy
whenever I felt overwhelmed by life
I knew everything would be o…

lost in his soulful vibe

mind officially blown
listening to the deeply soulful vibe
of the music of Leon Ware
it's like he finished what Marvin started
an invitation into a sensual world
where love always rules
where it's crazy to think
anything else could
make you feel quite as good
so easy to get lost in his
soulful vibe
lose track of time
forget where you are, who you are
and just let your imagination run wild
