Good Things Happen When

Good things happen when one remembers to keep going,
When one believes in miracles,
When one believes in love,
When one believes in laughter,
When one believes in hope,
When one stands up for their dreams,
Holds on tight to their faith,
Believes in the good,
Finds a way to forgive the bad,
Good things happen when one stands up,
For those that are around them,
That has less than them,
That needs hope,
That needs faith,
That needs something to believe in,
To know that they are cared for,
Cared about,
And are not forgotten,
Good things happen when you keep going on,
Even when you feel the very strength,
The very hope,
The very depth,
The very dreams,
Seem so far from where you are,
Good things happen when you show,
That you will extend that hand,
Think more than just yourself,
Put yourself in someone else’s shoes,
Listen to them,
Let them be heard,
Some just want to have their voice,
Voice let out from their world,
To have that voice,
Find a way outside of what is going on,
You never know a full situation,
You never know …

To My Fellow Writers

To my fellow writers,
My fellow dreamers,
That paint worlds with words,
That lives for the written word,
That finds joy in a character’s triumphs,
That finds pain when a character deals with hardship,
That finds hope within things hard to grasp,
Or to understand,
For believing in yourself,
Even when others do not,
To keep following that dream,
Knowing that you are on the path,
You have been made for,
For so long,
For understanding,
Those things are not always beautiful,
But that one tries through words,
And expressions to find that beauty,
That lies within all of us,
To my fellow writers,
Remember that there are many,
That has the dream such as you,
Support one another,
Care for each other,
Desire to help those,
That comes onto the path after you,
That some do not have the luck,
As some of us have,
To have someone to inspire,
To believe,
To give encouragement,
To know,
To remember,
How it feels being there,
To my fellow writers,
Never give up,
Even through the dark moments,
Even when someone doesn’t see,
Your vision,
Your …

Our Life's Purpose

April PAD Challenge Day 3- Imaging a world without you.

The rain would still fall down,
Upon all of us,
Spring would still bring blooms,
Summer would still bring warmth and barbecues,
Fall would bring the changing leaves,
Winter would bring the cold and sometimes snow,
Life would keep on going,
Even if I was not a part of the world,
But my friends would not be the same,
As they are now,
There wouldn’t be this voice,
That speaks within the night,
That plays with words,
Intertwines them so magically,
Giving hope to others,
Through this life,
Other families would still exist,
Love would still be a part of the world,
And troubles too,
But it wouldn’t be the same,
For those that count on the blessings,
That is given to them through this life,
I may only be one person,
I might not always make a huge impact,
But I do matter,
As every one of us have a purpose,
Even when we don’t always see,
We might not always know,
Until we trust in Thee,
And although life would keep going,
Even if I never was a part,
These …

Postcard to God

It's Been A Road Of Adventure

It’s been a long road,
Filled with its ebbs and flows,
Filled with hope and despair,
Filled with love lost,
Filled with love gained,
Filled with hardships,
Filled with losing close friends,
Filled with never knowing why certain people,
Just vanished without a word,
Just like smoke,
It’s been a long journey,
Even though I have many years left,
Even though I still have so much more,
To go through,
Through the hardships of a disease,
That can plague the depth,
If I let it win,
There was many times of darkness,
But brightness has taken over,
As my light continues to shine,
Through this difficult world,
It’s been a tiring road,
Trying to be light to darkness,
To keep going through,
To win over the nay sayer,
To find my way,
Find my way to here,
It’s been a wonderful road,
The last portion I have traveled,
Finding Him,
Accepting Him,
Believing in Him,
Finding my love,
The one I will call my own,
To the end,
It’s been a faith building road,
Through the trails,
Through the tribulations,
Honored by His Grace,
Blessed by fin…

Rules Are

Rules are meant to be broken,
Some are meant to be kept,
But when your heart is telling you,
That this is truly it,
That this is what you been searching for,
And others just don’t understand,
Sometimes one has to just let it all go,
And go guiding by your Heart,
And your head,
Keeping Him in the picture,
Helps as well,
But some things in life,
Some things are worth,
Certain rules,
Some rules seem silly,
Some truly help you through,
Whatever it is,
Let it speak to you,
Rules are meant to be broken,
When it comes to love,
Don’t always go by what is spoken,
Sometimes one proves everyone else wrong,
There are always us dreamers,
With faith and hope too,
That true love is still out there,
That it is still out to strive for,
And that is why,
Rules are meant to be broken,
As many would see today,
That it seems to be a common rule,
Or something to only find,
What is pleasure for the day,
But us romantics,
Us dreamers,
Us believers,
We see the truth,
That true love,
Everlasting love,
That love that is ordained,
To …
