Lessons learned in life (Poem)

Image
  I've been foolish, But I've learned, There's just a thin line between Sanity and insanity, Good virtues and sin, There's a wild side, Sometimes too rebellious to tame, Temptation doesn't wear a sulking  face, It knows how well to bait the hook, Sweet to the mouth,  Bitter in the belly, Fire and desire, It will cost more than, You bargain for, At worst death! I used to be hung up on Everything I'd never dare to do. Out of class. Dirty.  Taboo. Yet, at my strongest,  I became weak, Compromising  values for Misty moments of pleasure, A slave to the flesh, Never wanting to be free, I've been foolish, But I've learned, Experiences teach wisdom, Time past doesn't change regret, The follies of the heart, Aren't that simple to forget, No matter how strong you think you are, Temptation is everywhere, May God lead you through an escape!

Feel like you're above them so they put you down to feel better about themselves. The greatest people have haters for a reason, so take it as a compliment. Haters gonna hate.” ―  Jeanette Coron “One negative voice aimed at me has the incredible power to drown out a thousand positive ones. One of the greatest things I can achieve is to never let it.” ―  Dan Pearce “In all spheres of life, there are constraints. You have to develop your strategy to overcome each constraint.” ―  Lailah Gifty Akita There's hardly any escape from the harsh judgment of people. They're just about everywhere. Online, at work, at home, etc. Sometimes we try so hard to put our best foot forward, only to have those efforts snuff out by other people.  Some people take pleasure in putting down others. We can't always shut them

Life and Death (Poem)

  This post contains affiliate links. Please see the  disclaimer . If life gave me one last minute, Let it erase, All those tears I cried,  On lonely nights when my heart pounded Like marching soldiers in a platoon. My hopeless days of anxiety and discontentment, My bitter regrets and sore disappointments, All my dreams that weren't to be, Not this time, Bid them far from me. If life gave me one last minute, I'll paint the sunshine on my rainy days,   Tiny doses of laughter in the moments bittersweet, The glimmer of hope that trickled through my fears, Every prayer that was right on time, I'll seal them forever in the realms of my mind. If this is my last, God, let me have this peace,  Life is filled with a million memories, Some are too painful to forget,   Take me home in cheerful colors, I pray my soul finds rest in thee, Life is meant to be celebrated.  Annette Kinglock-Murray All Rights Reserved  Other poems: Need real website traffic.

Their loyalty ends where the benefits stop." “When you’re nothing, people will ignore you but when you’re on top that’s when everybody swears they know you.” — Lincey Alphonse “It’s breaking my heart the way this world is so mean to people with pure intentions and soft hearts. With time I’ve seen much cruelty towards good people that instead of being cherished, they are actually being used.” –Samiha Totanji Have you been thinking lately that someone might be using you? They could be! Maybe it's your partner, sibling, colleague, friend, boss, etc. Some people know no limit to the generosity you offer and they aren't afraid to exploit you to get whatever they need. They're always in for the taking! While there isn't anything wrong with helping others. Something is wrong when we feel as if we're being used. You may feel as though you

Embody (Poem)

Image
  She held them like thirst traps, Young, old, married men, In her courts, they surrendered, Even the strongest cower in the knees, A ravishing beauty, They all love, 'Queen V.' A tower of strength, The issuer of life, A menstrual flow train, The wonder that provokes men's hearts over continents and seas, They all love, 'Queen V.' Her kisses are honey, Her touches are never enough to be forgotten, She leaves some enthralled and out of their brains, Chanting unknown tongues, They all love, 'Queen V.' An Apple of their eyes, An arrow through their hearts, Solemnized vows, jewels, and money they surrendered them all, Cuddling in her courts warm and tender, The love of their life, Their secret keeper, Even the strongest cower in the knees, They all love, 'Queen V.'
