Willing To Change©

By Felina Silver Robinson

This morning I sit wrapped in the feelings I have about you and the world

I ask myself, have I done all that I can do, have I done the best that I can do?

I realize that no one is going to answer this question for me.

I realized that I will come to know my achievements when I no longer have to ask questions.

When one knows that they work as hard as they can and do all that they can do then the job is done.

If you are not satisfied, then change your focus and continue on with achieving.

The door never closes for those that are willing to do something

Nor does the door close for those who aspire to bring change for the good of others.

Always be willing to change


Affirmation©

When I was young I was always told that:

I had to learn to take care of myself

No one was going to take me where I wanted to go

I was going to have to get there on my own

I would have to find my way and have the strength to  make all my own dreams come true

I often felt alone, unloved and unappreciated

Until one day I understood exactly what the true message was

If there is something you want, you have to fight for it

You have to take every step necessary to meet your goal

Don’t expect others to give you what you want, for then you are not the one who has accomplished something

Don’t be afraid to do the work, keep your eyes wide open, remember each step that you take

For those steps will be the affirmation of your success.


Difference©

There is a difference in your eyes today

I can see into your heart

I’ve never known your feelings

Now I know your deepest fears

I know your hopes and dreams

You tell me your sorrows

I tell you mine

We find a way together to make them go away

We face the world together because there is no other way

There is a difference in your eyes today

You finally see a tomorrow

I’m grateful for the difference

Now you no longer have to turn away

Parents bring their child into a unknowing world

Each day full of uncertainty, no true direction known

Each of us have our values and those of our parents

The community has their own ideas

Your church may choose a different path for you

So many voices,

So many teachers

So many choices

Which road must you follow?

A parent must know to stay true to themselves

Raise your child with pride

Raise your child with your own mind

Take advice when needed

But the mold is yours

You created the life

The choices are all yours

All the voices help you have something to choose from

Only you will know in the end what you feel is right for you and your child

One day when they are old enough, your child will learn how to make their own choices

Hopefully all that you have taught them will guide them down the right path

Loneliness©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Loneliness may want you, but it is not your friend
Don’t fall victim to its desires

Loneliness only brings
sadness
Aloneness
It’s self-defeating
It’s self loathing

It’s sitting at a party in a corner by yourself
It’s spending every night alone with the TV instead of being out and about

Pick yourself up
Give yourself a makeover
If you look the best you can, you feel the best you can
If you feel good about yourself, others will feel good about you
You’ll become a friend magnet
Don’t be overwhelming, that’s an instant turn off
Find your just right button, you’ll be amazed at how it works
Act natural and be yourself, being phony is a true turn off

You may not believe this, but I grew up shy and sometimes lonely
One day I realized it wasn’t any fun and I was missing out on a lot
I woke up the next day with a different attitude, just deciding not to be lonely
I spent every day after with someone, doing something, and having fun
All the while remembering that loneliness is not my friend.


Never ending war©

Never ending war
We hope and fight for peace

Senseless deaths continue
Honorable, strong, loyal men and women fight our battles
Citizens march begging for an end

Radiation levels rise
As does fear and uncertainty

One thing we all know is that it will take each and every one of us
To fight this fight with prayer, love and support of all those who fight for us
Believe in the means to an end and never give up hope

If Nelson Mandela can fight for life than so shall we all
Remembering that not all fights need to be fought with violence
We need more reason and rational to make this world go round

Life is full of hope, reason, sacrifice, disappointment and success
We need to join together to reach our goal of happinessB
We hope and fight for peace

Senseless deaths continue
Honorable, strong, loyal men and women fight our battles
Citizens march begging for an end

Radiation levels rise
As does fear and uncertainty

One thing we all know is that it will take each and every one of us
To fight this fight with prayer, love and support of all those who fight for us
Believe in the means to an end and never give up hope

If Nelson Mandela can fight for life than so shall we all
Remembering that not all fights need to be fought with violence
We need more reason and rational to make this world go round

Life is full of hope, reason, sacrifice, disappointment and success
We need to join together to reach our goal of happiness


The Call©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Just because I didn’t call, doesn’t mean I don’t care

Sometimes, I need not hear your voice to be there at your side

I always hold you close to my heart, so close I still hear your heartbeat

I know when you are safe and I know when you are in trouble

Never walk in fear because help is always near

Keep your head up, walk with strength, and people will look past your fear
