It’s Only A Test!

a peaceful mind

Life is filled with ups and downs

Situations are thrown at us and we try to figure out why

Things that happens in our life we can’t only deny

Laying alone at night when all we want to do is cry

But in life our situations tend to make us stronger

If we just hold on just a little while longer

It’s Only a Test!

Listen closely as I tell you

Learn to be you and to think things through

Never give up because in life you want to with all the things  happening as if your life acts brand new

But I’m only telling you

Writing you that it’s only a Test!

Laugh at life’s remedies

Laugh in the face of the cold-hearted enemy!

Things that happen and the way they end; they shouldn’t be

Be calm and move away from the mess

And just remember that it’s only a Test!

My Guilty Conscious


hey there

my name is…

guilty conscious

the one that’s been struggling in your mind for all these years

making you feel bad for all the horrible things you have did and said

i want you to feel unwanted and fear

even though you are doing well in the future and meeting new people to help with your hopes and dreams

i’m still in the back of your mind holding a grudge for what this may seem

you may be smart and intelligent and filled with potential and creative ideas

but keep in mind that i’m still here

still holding on

i want you to smell the fear and feel less sincere

its me your guilty conscious talking to you from inside your head

even when you get ready to wind down for the night

i’ll be sleeping close behind you in bed


hey guilty conscious!

get out and stay out!

i dealt with you in the past and i’m ready to move on and trying to be a better me

you see you can’t make me feel low anymore, I stand firm just like an apple on the tree

trying to be free

so don’t mess with me

you have taken control of my mind for far too long

but in the end, i’m still singing upon my heart that victory song

to speak life and to seek positive thoughts

too many negative ones that crowded my head once before

the past i have fought

so guilty conscious you have no room here anymore to try and destroy me

as you see i’m moving on to bigger and better things

as my soul sits on God’s right wing

you are history

the past that can’t last

taking you away from me with just one blast from the past

so long and see you later

my present and future is only taking time to become greater!

Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning

As the sun hits your face

It’s a start for a brand new day

A fresh anointing

New beginnings

To smile and be happy and speak positive thoughts into the world

Laugh to keep from crying and to dance in the midst of your problems

They shall vanish away

As you sip from the fountain of happiness

To bow in your presence

To dance as you release yourself into the atmosphere

“Good Morning World!” as you scream at the top of your belly

The sun smiles back at you covering you with the light of grace
