Is it the face among which I appear?
Is it the craft of clothing that I wear?
Is it the image of another soul whom I loved?
Is it the texture of my skin that I pursue?
Is it the spoken words which rattles my mouth?
Is it the pride of guilt who caused me pain?
Is it the song of my voice which leads another heart?
What is it within the beauty of my lost mind?

The sun shines.
The moon glows.
Peace is a great feeling when the wind blows.
The grass is green.
The flowers bloom.
The chirp of the birds makes your soul gloom.
Nature is there.
Nature is here.
The seasons of change when times are near.
The mind rests.
It’s time to think clear.
The silence of people talking will have you in a cheer.
Let your light shine through troubles.
Let your light shine through sorrows.
It’s all a gift when you see a smile.
The next time you pray rejoice for a while.
The heart is full of happiness.
The soul meek in joy.
Spring is here.
The changes of nature will now glow.
The more I take a look around I either see a face with a smile or a face upside down.
Where is the happiness among those you choose to hang with, unless they are not the ones to play with?
What happened to the times you laughed, talked, & smiled? Was there not enough room for others to share your proud?
This may not be the only time you worked hard & thought of being a failure. You can not forget God lifts us up when our work is always heavier.
Try to remember that Joy always come in the morning. Is it not so of you having faith or are you in mourning?
Take my shoulder for you to lean on. We all need someone to help & keep us lifted up, just someone you can depend on.
Smile your day is already here. For God loves you more & more & you definitely won’t have to shed another tear.
Positive people, positive life, & positive vibes is what you need. No more of sad frowns & keep in mind God hears your every need.
It is very nice to have the opportunity to have three of my poems of my choice published. I am from Mississippi. Each poem represents motivation and a time in which I was going through my toughest life situations and only God could bring me out of. I hope I get the chance to inspire others and make a difference in this world. May God continue to bless each and every one of you.
And remember to always Stay Blessed & Stay Encouraged.
