Poem/ Short Story: Each Time I look in the Mirror!

Each time I look into the mirror!


I see not only a

portrait

But also ready

picture of myself,

Another view

of mankind

That’s molded

into me.

I see myself

as one small piece

of this this great

big puzzle

which we call.

Humanity.

I see myself

as a branch

of this mysterious

But god's creation

molded into

you and me.

I see myself

as a single bulb,

Contributing

to the light!

A light that

must shine

from each and

every human

that was born

A light that

must never

stop shining

As mankind

shares knowledge

continues on.

A life given to me

even without

my consent

Without any thought

of how I may

use, or abuse

The duration

of my stay.

Whether or not

I turn out to be

Just another

cheating misery

or a no good Liar

With no regard

for anyone

but hauntingly

to himself.

One that’s evil,

selfish, seems

unsure of where

all men has

truly come from!

When I took

that truthful look

into my life’s mirror

I saw a glimmer

of trust and hope.

It’s no doubt that

our creator

Designed it

that way.

He instilled feelings

and emotions

The likes of which

we won't dare

try to summon

or conjure up.

But he made certain

that each man

has his equal

share of his

own ability to dream.

He also instilled the ability to believe

and bear witness that sincere dreams,


always comes through

It's always enough left

for those of us to wake from our slumber

Rise with a joyous screams

Don't take for granted, or selfishly take advantage

Of another man's calling!

Let all those who knowingly prey on the weakness of others

Be aware that there are much better things they can do.

Let them search their hearts

and place those thoughtless shoes on the other foot.

For it's only a matter of time,

before those same atrocities will be on their way to you!

Oh yes!

Evil is powerful, but it must forever answer to Good.

See that shiny car that one may be driving today

It would forever be at the mercy of that which is under the Hood!

It's truly today for you and forever for me sir, that's the way I see it


Each time I look into the mirror!


Blessings!

Do you believe in faith?

Faith is conviction of truth without tangible proof. From a young boy , there was a time while I was attending the Pentecostal church with my older brother, I asked many questions to the elders and the pastor of the church. But the two most important ones were. What is faith and where did God come from?

The Bible says that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" one could not be answered, but the other made me believe. Because as a young boy I had always wished for many things myself. Not asked! Wished! In thinking about myself and my own existence. I easily told myself, that the Source of all living things would have to come from some superior and the word I heard and liked , was supernatural. That was God.

All truthful thought leads to, or is a belief. So I never stopped believing, thus having faith. Something to go by, because this it seems everyday will simply be a guess resulting in lack of self control, no boundaries and no foundation.

I no longer need the answers for any of those questions.


Blessings.

For God so Love!



Have you as yet found that which you truly Love?

I did and I am 110% sure it's for real and forever.

First is my beautiful Mother 91 years old . That cannot change and her mother came from somewhere , that cannot change,in going on , I can stop someplace, or don't go anymore. I must be true and sincere to the decision that I make for my parents were. That's why am here.

Give Thanks!

Thanks to all those that asked me to say Hi to her, I did!

She sends her blessings.


And secondly I love writing.

So I will write and Write and Write until I get it right , that's to that place where writing leads.

Note I did not say get it correct, because life is change and change fuels life.

See, that’s why true Love, cannot Finish or Die!


For God so Love!

I got both the message and making of, the same difference. The search engines , though I know who some of them are ,I remember that ad which accompanies your work. They will find your/their words you both own them, and strum up the sales.

I am glad that someone like you are already so close to the inner workings of this entire world. Because that's exactly ow it works, big fish small fish.

Bless.

May I add . . . what is real is real. The Lord called us at the same time. Different as can be, but Siamese twins.

Love ya, bro. I will show you how this gig works. I have been sent to the corner by Big Brother. I will be let out in time for the Fellsmere Frog Festival, where the real "Crackers" get their kicks. A Florida Boy is good at "Frog Gigging". Does they taste like chicken? No! Chicken tastes like frog!

Rodney Smith, Famous Florida Fishing Guide and author will be signing his new book, "Life on the Indian River Lgoon." Come join us. We need you! We'll talk. You can work from home.

Do I need to point out the words that I threw at the search engine? Take a hint. I am working a regional gig.

Thank you Senoritaa, this comment is greatly appreciated, simply because it strikes the nail alright. This is what the meaning of the poem is written to mean.

The difficulty in life are purely the extra's that we want , not need , and we go on to place these false prerequisites, acting like demarcation lines.

A beautiful comment that I enjoyed reading .

Thanks .

Bless.

Poem filled with introspection. Great job Sky. Finding one's true self and one's true love should be the motive of life, which we discard by running after meaningless experiences.

lol Then I hope that your next masterpiece ties in Frank from the blocks . It truly have a great ring to it being one of your nest thriller.

Sincere thanks brethren they are all so for involved in my effort at even more simplification, being West Indian.The Bible did not say , where giant multitudes are , that's where your best chance at a blessing is . It said where two and three are gathered together in the name of truth and sincerity . A great spirit ie ,. That's where blessings are.

Thank you Frank!

Bless.

Thank You jlald Very thoughtful I must say . It's it then I was totally hooked on knowing more about Michael and on myself . In that belief which I know did not stand a chance in places that have the signs put up about the type of life allowed .

All roads of self awareness and honesty have very specific feeding areas . I hope you had the time to read my hub on meditation.

Thanks jlald, very much appreciated.

Bless.

We have a tendency to overlook what's good about ourselves and only see the negatives and or deficiencies when we appraise ourselves. Your writing serves as a reminder to also see good in ourselves.

Thanks WD. They can only take a few buck , while I clearly remember . The fool and his ill gotten wealth soon depart.

And for the Love of money is the root of all evil.

This is the reason that the Bible remains free, even after people were threatened with there lives.

I have seen things the like of which madness became the order of the day.

Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley are from those necks in the woods.

Remember yeah though I walk!

I do.

Bless bro and give thanks.

And it encourages me as , you can say so!

Thank you Kelly , for reading and commenting as smoothly and as sincere as it feel . But you are so correct this is all about that truth that reminds you , and don't bother you that's another force , the good one reminds .

I am quite sure this is the way you feel it's expressed in your word.

Amen, brother Sky9106. In my experience, West Indian and rural Appalachian preachers are the best.

Keep your spelling and your style. Who can rip you off?

You are welcome. I admire the way you can take these feelings and put them into words this way. It really hits home. I find the truth in the mirror to be the simple request God has for me - simply love. Which means to me not only to love others, but also myself, whom God has created. That gives me light - Thanks for sharing this with us.

But putting all else aside , let it be a controlled explosion, cause I just to name one needs you around and not just here on HP. Thank you very much.

The one that was so wise to say If music be the food of love play on!

To put it best I am happy the the Most High God, who we all know cannot beatr a selfish atom in his divine majesty. Knew to install in every man whether he follows or not the truthful belief , that things that are are truly with more spirit chased than enjoyed, and that essence of a fulfilled life is "Sharing" Just imagine momma telling us to find our own milk as I see some are practising in our times. The most important nutritional elements a child need can only be found there in this mild of mothers. One like Mono louring (ck the SP)!No other place on earth.

tHERE IS ONLY ONE wd Curry and I found him and it's my pleasure knowing more of you each day. Thanks for sharing!Give Thanks.

I am blown away by your ability to match the visuals with your words. It must take a lot of effort. Your broad taste and awareness of music is astounding.

When I look in the mirror, I am surprised everytime. Who is that old man? Oh well . . . at least he still has a spark in his eyes.

Thanks Kelly its a great pleasure to know that something you did with a great meaning intended.

That the feeling transmitted has reached its mark, which is to let others see and feel that meaning .

I thank you for reading and a short comment which confirms that conclusion.

Thanks

With a genuine smile on your face Caroline I am encouraged to once again dig very deep inside to find room for those sincere spirits that energize and inspire.

Truth in everything is the key to the real life and when ever you have found yours, you are on the correct road. There is no stimulant or drug that can compete with "truth" even as simple as when you find your truthful favorite one of anything.

Thanks Caroline for reading and your always thoughtful comments, it's inspirational.

Bless.
