For Me….


What is the program?
Has the agenda been set?
I sit here in the depths of my soul trying
To filter through the lies
Wondering how things have gotten so far
No longer apologizing for my complete beautiful self
But accepting my strength and my destiny to choose my life

The life my God has in store for me that has already been given
Knowing now I don’t have to apologize for my family for
They love me sincerely and truly
And that will always be enough

Knowing I don’t have to apologize from where I am in life
Only make plans not to be in the exact same place in
10 years

Understanding my passion is my strength
I am passionate I love with my whole heart and what
A bounty of beautiful feelings that is for anyone to be
Bestowed with such grace and homage
I create lasting friendships out of acceptance of that which they are, Not what I would like them to be
I stand for truth and courage of my convictions
I stand to open my mouth and let the truth fall where it may
If I love you I tell you truth, not based on your feelings
but based on your character

What your feelings may not be able to carry, your character definitely will
My convictions are strong because they are mine
they are not the manifestations of me looking through a window wanting someone else’s life,
but they are the manifestations of what I want for my self

On the day, on the week, on the year
and every nook and cranny in between

I come from love and I give love freely
I will forever respect myself
and my stance on the perspective that God has given me

I do not take second place because I am only built for first

And when I make a decision to allow the possibility of a connection from my life to another, rest assured that it is not by mistake but by my design,
I am truly graceful, because I beckon myself to be
I am truly compassionate because God has bestowed that on me…

Truth at all times on all levels,
if it hurts, then it must be helping
I will not design my life on make believe but making it happen
But you will not break me down,
you will not bring me down,

this is simply another long awaited agreement
between my soul and my mind my heart and my spirit
to respect the people in my life f
or as long as they are in my life
and admonish in them to give respect to me

I will no longer disrespect myself through or by any means for any reason (for there is none)
I will remain the epitome of class and elegance at all times knowing that is the stage I have set for myself
and that’s exactly how I will be seen
(most of all through God’s Eyes)

God grant me the ability to control my destiny with you all things are possible and I love and trust you
As for those of them that are currently in costume you will soon discover you were truly blessed
When you knew me, truly, truly, blessed………….(perhaps in knowing that, the lies will vanish)…..

Now THIS is something I need to print out and hang on MY wall! ... if only my printer would print more than 2 lines. Guess I'll just have to hand copy it! Soooo encouraging!
