Look Out For Yourself!

Don’t expect others to help you out
Don’t assume things will be alright
Don’t equate that people think like you
Don’t imagine life will always be the same
Don’t waste your hard work earnings
Don’t only plan for today, but also the future
Don’t overlook the talents within you
Don’t deny your natural curiosity
Don’t lose hope when things go wrong
Don’t stop learning in order to understand
Don’t neglect the health of your body
Don’t lie, cheat and try to get away with it
Don’t assume you have all the answers

Just become the person you are meant to be.

Christ's Birth

I know what it was like... just
Hearing about the Christ child.

Hearing the Nativity story
Hearing the songs written and sung
Hearing the Scriptures in the Bible
Hearing the people talk about Him

But once He has come to you; you
Will fully understand and have the
Wisdom of His peace and love.

It is eternal and stays with you in
Your heart, mind, soul and strength.

Christ shall reign forevermore. Amen

Who was William?
Was he a prophet?
Or, maybe a King?
A priest instructed
Through vision, or
Inspiration, to lead,
Or redeem, Israel?
Who is the mother?
The father, relatives
Of this Shakespeare,
This man so versed?
Quotes I have heard
From a child till now,
Most of which apply
In life somehow.
In schools there are
Plays depicting his
Works. Not just then,
Or when I was young.
I hear his words when
I least imagine them,
From people I thought
Didn’t know of him.
Who is William, this
Is he the son of Jesse,
The brother of David,
Coming from the line
Of Judah? Another
Psalmist, philosopher,
A man with great
Insights. Or a poet, a
Playwright, with just
A simple message?
Words have a way of
Changing many things
In each one of us live.
Just like a Star, we also
Leave our prints with
Every word we use.
You can call me William
(with a smile).
My parents call me Charles,
With all of their heart.

Remember that you Shine!

Pretty Things

I always had an eye for pretty things
So abundant of comfort and style.

I always had ways to seek pleasure
In the simplest forms all around me.

I always had seen the world in beauty
So abundant of talents and structure.

I always had riches felt in the heart
In the blessings and wisdom given.

I always had love for what matters
So abundant of joy and grace.

Why Honor your Parents/Guardians?

They love you
They know you
They guide you
They shape you
They direct you
They teach you
They inform you
They encourage you
They command you
They socialize you
They improve you
They skill you
They care for you
They standup for you
They sacrificed for you

When you rebel, you don’t learn!

Simply Alone

A beautiful woman
Sat at a table for two.

Dressed very pretty;
No ring on her finger.

What’s a woman like you
Sitting there all alone?

She placed an order for a
Delicious meal and drinks.

Her attire was striking
On her lovely tan body.

Why isn’t a man with her
To give love, honor, and care?

Music was playing and it
Was the most perfect evening.

The atmosphere of ambience
Was simply surrounding her.

Inspired of an evening out

I Glow When I Am Happy

Sometimes work gets a little overwhelming.
When personal things get caught in the midst
            Of aligned strings.

Or in the commitment to community links.
When quality family time begins to sink.
When the brain is weary to think,
Of how to keep the body in sync.

In a space where only rest can relieve me
From stress, though I feel I am doing my best,
There is a bigger mess.

Still I keep going, moving on impulse, gasping
            For air.

As my heart beats rapidly I know, I know that
I’m low. Perhaps even lower than it shows, below
The essential blood flow.

Some things I must let go, as sure as the wind
Blows. There I recall how Moses received a vow,
That stands even now.

My burden will never overflow. Give thanks
That is so. Even when I’m weary I know, one kind
Word makes me glow.

I Follow The World News

I pray for a safe world in which we
Can reach many goals for our future.

It takes strong, dedicated, willing,
Remarkable leaders and cooperative,
Respectful, and lawful citizens to
Make it happen.

Taking Many Months Off

I presently will be taking many months off
For myself and not taking the time to write.

I need to reflect where I stand, what I need
To do, and what/why I must change differently.

I wish for all my readers; happiness, love,
Peace, good health, prosperity, and inner joy.

I have a curious, stimulating mind that wants
To go somewhere, even I can’t get there yet!

I want you to enjoy reading my first book, it
Was released in 2016; written just for you!

I enjoy being your author/writer and was happy
That you had been a factor of that beginning.
