    I was given a second chance to coexist with this beautiful Earth, So I promised myself and my Family, that I will make the best out of This renewing and revitalized rebirth, I’ve realized that I can now be a productive member of society, I had to struggle through many of the deepest darkest days and dirt, But, This is why life has taken on a whole new meaning, A brand new outlook, A brand new turf,   I learned through every experience, The many bridges that were almost burnt, And at those times what was a world full of unbearable unforgiving hurt, Gigantic mounting depression that constantly perched and relentlessly lurked, So,  Never give up is what I strongly urge, Because I almost succumbed to all of it,  And was almost completely submerged,    If it wasn’t for these tough times, I would never have had so many lessons learned, It was valuable, Even those days that were the worst, I wouldn’t have ever been able to garden myself, Irrigate my emotions, Dig deep, And done a thorough Soul Search, The toughest challenge I faced was to find my true self worth, And, I’m not gonna lie, It almost made my brain cells burst, Yeah, […]


    A man infested with addiction’s upper hand, Can’t fumigate those pests in his mind,  He’s been shut down and overran, The substance abuse is so strong, the struggle within he Cannot comprehend and fully understand,   Dependency has surrounded him and has taken the reigns, It complicates and hinders all his childhood’s dreams and life’s plans, He can’t escape from the hole he dug, No matter how high the ladder was, or how far he went and ran,   The landscape of a day consisted of only the choice to use, For he was the chemical’s favorite player, definitely it’s biggest fan, Controlling every impulse and DNA strand, It became the foreman of every thought process’ plot of land, No ability to fight back, No way to be mentally manned, Feeling so deserted and alone, So there is no way to make a single stand,   Losin’ the motivation to even deal, Losin’ the ability to even feel, Stomach twisted in knots, Skipping the action of even having a meal,   We cannot deny these clear portraits I paint, This daily epidemic is all too frequent and REAL, The affects of it’s effects are immense, These onion facts need to be heard, Stressed on, figured […]


    Addiction is causing families to be torn apart, A ripple effect that is ripping them at the seams, It’s time to battle back, Conquer this epidemic we’re facing, And Eradicate this disease,   We need to talk about it with our kids, Same as we do with the birds and the bees, Educate the younger minds, Teach about the temptations,  This is a pleading poetic “Please”, For that to reach the younger generations, I constantly pray and hit my knees,   Addictions are stealing lives as we speak, I refer to them as a very cruel, ruthless family full of thieves, Let’s put our heads together and somehow make their  Negative influences have no choice but to get up, pack their bags and leave,   Let’s get our loved ones back, Help them so they are no longer lost, Therefore graciously retrieved and well received,   I know one thing for sure, I’m putting my time and energy towards it, Sweating with this motivational poetry, What does that mean? It means my pen will always drip devotion for the cause, and therefore constantly bead, I let this ink bleed, because like I’ve said in previous poems,… “It’s how my motivation and dedication breathes”,   I was raised to always try to do good works, To […]


    As my ink fills the page, I realize the vital importance of each composition’s reflection, Breakin’ down the day, Makin’ sure I did my best in each minute, hour, and every second’s section, That’s why I try my damnest to bring forth the passion through my pen from Within my heart, It’s a sincere collection from my brain’s currents and waves of communicative connection,   Sharing hope and positive vibes to others who may be struggling, My cohesive complexion, For, with pouring out my inner most emotions it Gives some helpful insight to those that might be stuck at a fork, A life’s frightening intersection, Maybe tough times that seem way too difficult and too testin’,   So I hope to provide some encouragement, To make “changing for the better” their Primary selection, I’m not perfect by any means, but I have learned through my past troubles And addictions many lessons, Through experience we need to teach our kids, teens, and adolescents, So helpin’ out in any way I can, well… That’s my poetry’s choice of words, and selective elective, Poetical incentive, After all, Raising more awareness is in its own way extremely protective.
