so many angles
so many lines
what happened to

a world of manipulation
to meet our basic needs
a web of confusion
to hide our hearts

so many angles
so many lines
what happened to

is the world really that bad
or have we created confusion
with angles and lines

a true heart
reaches out
a humble heart
accepts what is offered
a sincere heart
realizes its desires

no more angles
no more lines
no more gimmicks
no more twists
no more turns

your honest heart will do

If we open our eyes and our hearts, we will see what we can do.  It is so simple.  Yes there are risks, but they are far less treacherous than all the angles and lines we create. 

Take a minute.  Close your eyes.  Concentrate on your heart.  Let the love that hides there permeate your mind, your body, your soul.  Now open your eyes and reach out.  Do what you can do.  The rewards will surprise you.

sifting through the pieces
of my broken dreams
searching for parts
to salvage
looking for pieces
that I can reclaim

so many dreams
have gone up in smoke
and there are those
i've simply outgrown
some were lost
by choices i've made

now here i am
wanting a dream
building a purpose
with the foundation
i've laid

so i'm taking small pieces
from my broken dreams
creating a life
starting right here
forgiving my past
changing my ways

and on that day
when my life is done
i will quietly pass
with no regrets
and thankful
for my second chance

I have had many dreams throughout my life.  And I have had a precious few that have come true.  For those I am grateful.  Unfortunately, I have allowed far too many to disappear.  Some I have lost because life happened.  Others because I didn't fight hard enough.  Some because I did not believe in myself and my worth. 

What I do know is that I am running out of chances.  I cannot get time back.  I cannot change what has been.  But, I can change me.  I can give my dreams the respect and the fight they deserve.  So today, I am reclaiming my dreams.  Today I begin the fight to reclaim those dreams that define me.  Today I make a change.

I may fall and stumble.  But, I pray for the courage and the strength to get up and continue on.  For those who love me, I ask one thing...get the bandaids ready.  I am ready to do this.

there are hearts
linked to mine
they change my life
they bring me joy
they anchor my soul
they keep my feet
 on the ground
they pull me up
when i am down
and when i feel
so all alone
they tug my heart
and spread their warmth
if i try to pull away
they remind me gently
they are here to stay
there are hearts
linked to mine...

As we walk through life and learn to love, we sometimes get hurt.  It would be a tragedy to let hurt keep us from loving again.  There are those that attach to our hearts for a brief, whirlwind experience.  And then, just as quickly they are gone.  But, there are hearts that will forever be connected to ours, if we allow it.  These are the hearts we should treasure.  For these are the hearts that know us best.  And these are the hearts that will stand beside us as the world crumbles at our feet.

Time Keeps On Slippin'

another day gone
another moment lost
another missed opportunity
another memory fades

mark my words
mark this day
mark this moment
make your mark

tomorrow you may not wake
today is the day
time is slipping away
change your life today

All too often we get caught up in the daily grind.  We seem to believe that we have all the time in the world to change who we are, to become someone better, to change the world.  As the song says "Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future".  Don't let it slip by.  This is the moment you have to change the world.  This is the moment you have to to know the meaning of life.  This is the moment you have to experience love.  Don't let it slip away.
