A city of of people

Turn to me

Looking for hope and direction

They trust me to lead them to their destiny

Am I strong enough

Who will lead me

Who will give me strength

We will do great things together

Together as one

For I am nothing without

All of you

You are my strength

You are my soul

You are my conscience

You are my soul

You are my heart

If you look to me

I’ll look to you and together

We will whether all storms

What you’ve grown to know may not be the truth you think you are living

There are things we keep from another to protect us from the things that may hurt us

Don’t look deeper than you need to for the fear of what you may find may be grater than your strength to fight it

You’ll always know what it is felt that you need to know

You’ll always have the strength you need to pull you through the harshest of battle

It is hopeful that your shield will always be able to protect you

You are fortunate to be among the inner circle

When You Needed Me©

angels right side

When you needed me

I lent you my shoulder

I opened my door

I opened my heart

I gave you all that I had to offer

There is no shame

There is no need to repay me

I lend the hand of hope

To help you see the opportunities before you

To help you see that the world isn’t as bad as it seems

To help you understand that life is worth fighting for

To help you see that no one or no thing has the right to take away your hopes or your dreams

To help you see that your life and all that’s in it is worth fighting for

For as long as you want it

To help you see that you are worth the time and the effort

To help you see that love heals all wounds

I am glad that you needed me

and that I was there to lend my hand and open my door

Eyes as Full of the Ocean©

Eyes as full as the ocean

Don’t close your eyes to the pain

A heart of gold

Let your heart heal the wounded

A soul like no other

Let your soul guide you through

You are open to forgiveness

Traveling through time

Lifetimes over

Nothing has changed

We see the same loss

We know the same devastation

There are some who are forgiving

But more that are unforgiving

We live in the land of hope

But you only have hope

If you feel hope

You have to want things to be

To be different than they were

Every time before

In centuries past

In centuries ahead

Make the change

To begin again

To give our children

and their children

The chance to carry on

To become the things

We could never be

To do the things that we could never do

Through these eyes as full as the ocean

I can see all there is

and all there was

and this time

I want things to be different

Take away the storms that kill

Take away the guns that end lives

Take away the words that send young ones to their deaths

Take away the racism that separate the people

Take away the poverty that leaves those begging

Take away the shame that keep people hidden

Give everyone Eyes as Full as the Ocean

Help©

By Felina Silver Robinson

It’s not easy to extend your hand in hopes that you will get the help you so badly need

It’s even harder to choose to be the one to help

Sometimes the decision to help is a part of you

You don’t know any different and its second nature to you

Don’t waste time thinking of what others might think

Because you extended your hand as the giver or the taker

Think of how you would feel if you didn’t

Don’t feel guilty if you can’t afford to extend your hand

Sometimes you may be the one who needs the help

Be open to receiving help

For as long as you are willing to offer help to others in need

Your needs will also be met in some way at some time

We are giving kind

We just need a small reminder sometimes

No one is too good to help nor too good to receive

People are both givers and receivers

Be there for those in their time of need and they will be there for you

Help is always there, all you need is ask

I wrote this poem on 10/02/2013 in a tribute to those who were and

continue to be out of work due to government shutdowns,

but it applies to all those in need everywhere at any time.

Bless you all and your families.

Fear©

I’ve held onto the fear for so long

Now it’s time to peel back the layers

You may not like what you see

But it’s who and what I am

I’m tired of pretending

I’m tired of being someone else

I’m tired of playing games

I’m tired of being lost inside myself

So I offer you a glimpse of just who I can be

The good, the bad, the ugly

You might just see

That I’m not all that bad

Just you wait and see

Fear lingers only if you let it

But it no longer has a home here


I can’t decide to take the life of another

Despite their taking without hesitation the life of others

History has taught us

A life for a life

But what is the value in that

Does everything need to have a placement of value

How confused I am

I know in my heart to kill is wrong

I just don’t want to own the decision to hurt another

For the memories who haunt me the rest of my days

I will remain Undecided©
