The days are slick
Traps are set
I’m not a gambler
but on this I’ll bet

That I’m covered 
all the way around
HE has never 
and will never let me down

I have to worry about me
and stay out of the way
So I drop down to my knees
and simply pray

Get my back LORD
Remind me today 
That if the enemy comes
YOU will get in the way

And for that I’m grateful
Blessed and relieved
You do a better job 
Of protecting me than me

It's been a while since I posted a thought
Wonder why they've remained and never got lost
Trying to understand the growth I know
And that it didn't come sooner like 20 years ago

The lesson wouldn't have been learned
I wouldn't have understood the test
That's given before the lesson
Script flipped nonetheless

But I am thankful I got it before it's too late
That I can share with those in their youth
Being alive is a blessing not a rehearsal
My time on earth is the proof

Your one go round is all you need
If you pray and plan, and plant the seed
So here's to revelation and clarity
Understanding life has no parity

We all get different challenges
and we all get different blessings
Just pray and accept the outcomes
And no you can't prepare for the testing

Just live and learn
See and discern
Be on fire but don't burn
Accept the bad when it's your turn
And let your passion just churn
Then pass the knowledge on...

I remember seeing you the first time but then I saw you again
You, were a ballet of thoughts dancing in my head
Your voice was an orchestra of words
speaking a symphony to my wonderment 
had me wondering what it meant
Like a song I couldn’t play
So I just stared at the cover photo

Then you smiled and the rainbow had life
brilliant by design
but I was even more impressed by your mind
Intellectual stimulation
Negative thoughts took a vacation, in that moment
Your strength is of legend
fueled by survival, constantly in revival
Look at you now

I saw you the first time but then I saw you yet again
HiDef nothing left to the imagination
To say your style found my appreciation
isn’t lost on this man
So I pressed play on thoughts
Watched with admiration while I fought
What came to the surface
If I confessed in the moment at that time
what would be the purpose 

Fast forward; road blocks and barriers of past times now gone by
They’ve now been torn down with new buildings taking my place; 
you could call them a replace
They may be looking but it’s no longer at my face

But I am still who you saw the first time and then saw again
And to know your view brought me into focus
means my picture was clear
Thank you for the whisper in my ear
Now where do we go from here?
Shhhhh don’t tell anybody
But me

Make this the year you TALK and DO

Don’t just talk about working out, DO IT
Don’t just talk about opening a business DO IT
Don’t just talk about helping the less fortunate DO IT
Don’t just talk about mentoring DO IT
Don’t just talk about burying the hatchet DO IT
Don’t just talk about uplifting friends DO IT
Don’t just talk about taking a trip DO IT
Don’t just talk about buying a home DO IT
Don’t just talk about volunteering DO IT
Don’t just talk about changing your diet DO IT
Don’t just talk about earning a promotion DO IT
Don’t just talk about following Christ DO IT
Don’t just talk about stopping Black on Black Crime DO IT
Don’t just talk about working together DO IT
Don’t just talk about donating DO IT
Don’t just talk about being positive DO IT
Don’t just talk about what you’re going to do this year DO IT
Why? Because you may not get another chance…

Make this the year of T A D 
Talk and Do
And everything you talk about doing 
In 2016 I hope it comes true

If it’s positive…
