poem ~ restored hearts

You'll never understand 
what hurt someone so,
But it's a choice to walk away
or to let them know.

The silent pain you bare
can never be recovered, 
Unless vulnerability they share 
to the heart that really cared.

Don't live in a space 
of pain deep in your soul,
When restoration 
is in your complete control.

Live from the knowledge
in the hurt that you feel,
You can always bring healing
to the wounds that are real.

No matter the route
someone else takes,
Believe in this moment 
true love has full benefits.

poem ~ need to hustle

I've been told I need to hustle 
every day of my life,
To fulfill the promise
and the calling on my God given life.

I've been told I need to hustle
working hard to make it happen, 
In everything I have to do
to be connected to what's most true.

I've been told I need to hustle
and be like the ant,
Whose constantly busy working
just to make ends meet met.

I've been told I need to hustle 
to make an impact here,
But the daily grind to do more
makes life feel like it's a chore.

I've been told I need to hustle
to make a difference here,
As if hustling to get ahead 
is gonna make me feel fulfilled instead.

I've been told I need to hustle
to get ahead in life,
But as I study Jesus path
it makes me think about this twice.

I've been told I need to hustle
and work myself to the bone,
Yet when I study the principles of success
I don't find this to be the grand slam home.

I've been told I need to hustle
yet when simple disciplines you set,
More is greatly accomplished 
when work life balance you establish.

I've been told I need to hustle 
for there isn't enough time,
I find this feeds discontent 
and more of the scarcity mindset.

I've been told I need to hustle
and produce more from the core,
That what I'm doing isn't enough 
and that there's more benefits in more.

I've been told I need to hustle 
and I've kept this on repeat,
Until I've become so exhausted
I have no desire to doing a thing but sleep.

I've been told I need to hustle
but I see life has much more, 
When I live in the space of less
I find contentment gallore.

I've been told I need to hustle 
yet when I stop and look,
I see the beauty in each day
when my heart in touch I stay.

I've been told I need to hustle 
yet I promise you its not true,
For the achievement in life
doesn't come by all you do.

I've been told I need to hustle 
to live a life that's complete,
But I'm seeking something different
to intentionally just live and be me.
