Written Words – Help

December 27, 2010

Asking for help isn’t admitting failure, sometimes it’s the best way to succeed.

Dear God I wrote this letter to put my thoughts on paper
Sometimes life seems like a criminal without a well planned caper
I know You are the answer but I forget the question
How do I know You love me when no one else seems to care?

I’ve tried everything I thought might help me understand things
And it didn’t tell me anything or even play my heart strings
So I’m writing You this letter to wait for Your reply
‘Cause I am so tired of not believing I’ll give You a try

I don’t know but I got this feeling
That today’s gonna be my turning point
Everyday I get a little bit closer
It feels so good to finally be over

I don’t know but I think I’m learning
This type of thing’s never been my calling card
Sometimes You just gotta look closer
Instead of searching so hard

So when I start to get down and the world fills up around me
And my head starts spinning like a top
From the way my heart beat’s pounding
I can look up for a second and know that I’m alright
I spent so long not believing it’s my turn to fly

I don’t know but I got this feeling
That today’s gonna be my turning point
Everyday I get a little bit closer
It feels so good to finally be over

I don’t know but I think I’m learning
This type of thing’s never been my calling card
Sometimes You just gotta look closer
Instead of searching so hard

How I missed You every time I look for You

“This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you’d just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me”

First Day of My Life


Written Words – Inspiration

December 13, 2010

There must be something meaningful to share.

A thought that merits revealing.

A hope that’s worth conveying.

Life keeps getting in the way of inspiration, the reality trumping the dreams.


Written words – Control

December 3, 2010

Life can be frustrating.
When a decision that was entirely your own, leads to a series of events totally out of your control.
Will Smith said, “There is something liberating about making a choice, in choosing and not simply accepting how things are going to be”, and he’s right. But there’s also an old adage which says “you can’t always control what happens, but you can always control how you respond”.
But what about when the choices you’ve made, render your response irrelevant? When the wheels get set in motion and all you can do is watch, like playing “Plinko” on “The Price is Right”.
Yea, life can be frustrating, waiting for that tiny ball to tell you what lies ahead. Just watching, helpless, because of the choice you made.
