The Color of My Skin

 

Throughout my years, I tried to make sense of nonsense,
The color of my skin took prevalence over my born innocence,
What a burden to carry even as a child,
That the color of my skin would get people so riled,
It is still a wonder to me,
Some hearts filled with animosity.
Purposed effort designed my outer shell,
Brilliantly created so that I may show and tell,
That the color of my skin should not be a disgrace,
Nor the shape of my eyes, my nose, or my lips on my face.
The color of my skin is part of His plan and His Masterpiece,
Grace, beauty, and His effervescent love surround you and me.
I am here to reveal the truth that binds the universe,
I am here, like you, to serve a divine purpose.
I am a Masterpiece in HIS own right,
Created by focused hands not blinded by sight.
A small piece of America’s rich history.
Inside and out, I reflect divine beauty,
Just glance at the things that surround us,
Trees, buildings, cars, and animals who do not fuss,
Stillness in their form without worry of their outer appearance,
Why do you still question my existence?
My desire to be me burns so deep inside,
It keeps me going when I want to hide,
Keeping myself whole and to never part,
Revealing aspirations & revelations that lie deep within my heart.
Just like you, I feel happiness, pain, and sorrow,
Blessed to live another tomorrow,
Is it so hard to see the truth that resides within?
For we are greater than the color of our skin.

What you do to others , you do to yourself.

Do not discount the harm you are doing to yourself when you carry anger, hatred, rage, and others. How can self-love exist in a crowded body full of darkness? Think again about about all of these rare conditions and chronic conditions. 

Is there anyone that you need to forgive? Are you willing to do it right now?

Make today great! This is the moment you have right now. Nothing else is guaranteed.

Closer


What if we treated every event in our lives as a step closer to living our best life-to being our true self? The pain, the loss, anger, and disappointment are to bring you/me closer to being a compassionate and loving being. We could then truly see how resilient we are. We could experience unconditional forgiveness. Could we then see that everyone is on the journey of healing? We are all at different points-not good or bad…just at different points along our journey. 
Being a single mom is to bring us closer.

Being without your biological father or mother is to bring us closer. 

Being abused/neglected is to bring us closer.

Losing a loved one is to bring us closer…

Experiencing love or hate is to bring us closer…..etc. 
How can we take our eyes off the messenger and focus on the message?

Make today great. We do not know how long we are here.
