Despair Not

Despair, despair, despair 

Release every care

What might not work now

Might seem like a steep climb

But there’s a view on top 

Fret, fret, fret 

Let go of every regret

What you didn’t have

Might have been 

An opaque trophy

Loneliness, loneliness, loneliness 

Release every time you felt neglect

What might seem like isolation 

Is actually a sure sign of

Character development and growth 

We all go from spring to winter

Wounded hearts with a splinter

It’s all about how we recover

Make it to the finish line

With whole souls and a new focus

The Mystic

Each day is something new to discover

Like walking a freshly paved road

With flowers on the border

Grateful yesterday for the peace I sowed

I want to reach inside

For some truth

Is life an absolute?

Or my day walking?

Not sure how to feel

I go both and forth

But I keep walking on

Between suspicion and worth

You have two things in hand

A cross and an epitaph

I guess that’s all our path

A life of struggle going up a graph

Please don’t give up on me

Just seeing things as realistic

I haven’t given up on you

In this heart, there’s still a genuine mystic 

My Website

I hope everyone is doing ok. 🙂 I know I haven’t been on much. I have been taking on other endeavors. I created my own website which features original poetry, a short story, and some sermons that I did. I hope this will inspire and if you are interested, I invite you to check it out here: https://www.carlyswritingsandteachings.com/. Also, I’m accepting donations to help support my friend Stephanie, who is undergoing breast cancer treatments. If you like to find out more, click here: https://www.carlyswritingsandteachings.com/donate. All the donations will go towards her treatments. You can donate through PayPal.

Senses

 

1F6A1CCC-6446-4814-877F-71DAA91A0805

Like ribbons of sound waves

That echo in your mind

Vibrations of noise resonate with me

 

Sight is a beautiful display of colors and shapes

Do you see the color red as I do?

I’ll never know if you see the tone as I do

 

I am aware of many textures around me

From the lumpy dirt to the soft sand

Or the sun on my skin or the cool snow

 

I smell the goodness around me

Roses and warm apple pie

They excite the receptors

 

I can taste the ice cream cones

As I get to the tasty chocolate end of the cone

These senses are unique and serve a purpose

Broken Universe

36F3BC84-CE19-4976-A3D8-6AF6CA641A44

Father, I need your glory

I am in a broken universe

Amidst an evil force

It wants us to feel unloved 

May we walk with people

In their despair 

Instead of giving them crutches

For their headache 

And saying I love you bunches

 

We are scared of others brokenness 

Because it reminds us of ours

Do you have compassion for the one under bars?

Truth sets us free like owning our ache

You’re the final piece to someone’s heart break

Highways of Your Heart

A6FD25AC-66DD-45E4-B7C9-FCE191E00BFE

Feeling sorrow

About tomorrow

So many questions 

About others intentions 

 

Like a dusty mirror in a car

Is your self-image ajar?

Traveling to the nearest state

In hopes of a blank slate 

 

You can cruise the highways

Or pass oceans and bays

Through sunny weather

But will this make you better?

 

Travel the highway of your heart 

Each chamber is a good place to start 

At first, the path may be slow

But you’ll know where to go

Heaven is Still Unwritten

9B3EE62A-2573-4DD2-8822-B6A6BAB276D7

Heaven… still unwritten 

Beauty beyond description 

Angels… singing praises

Catching the Father’s gaze

 

Forever, forever, forever

I truly cannot wait

Now I surrender, surrender

 

Dreams… coming alive

No reason to strive 

Crystal sea.. take a drink

It’s closer than you think

 

Forever, forever, forever

I truly cannot wait

Now I surrender, surrender

 

Sin… no more

A hope you are looking for 

Seeing Jesus… face to face

Removing all earthly disgrace

 

Forever, forever, forever

I truly cannot wait

Now I surrender, surrender

 

Endless life…with no end 

Eons of a timeless Friend

Friendships… Never ceases

As eternal love increases
