Blank Canvas

Amazing things happen when you stare at a blank page –

As I was preparing to do my entry for this blog, I was captivated by this amazing blank canvas where I was about to explode from the implode of words within my soul.

To create a beautiful canvas that would stimulate.

I thought how dynamic this is to be

Able to take nothing and make it something.

The power of words.

I get a little, you know, deep in thought because my writings come very intuitively.

I don’t prepare for, I don’t sketch it out over and over, typically what you receive is a first time run through.

My mind as it unwinds.

Where I dictate my thoughts, as I ought  

So, whether it’s poetic, metaphorical, or categorical.

Something pensive or incentive

I hope it can provide perspective, somewhat suggestive,


That grabs the reader, and makes them a believer in


I want to touch a light


Make things right.


To make a difference

Captivate and motivate.

So, to closeout this blog today

Here are some words that are in my heart.

They weren’t here from the start, but

As I began to give thought to the hour it made me think about the power

We have – when we just come simplistically.

To the people that we don’t even realize we’re touching

To come in a state that does not hinder.

To open up our minds to a greater surrender.

To be in a place where we will motivate cause we’re not even looking at the race.

We know the reader may be a speeder someone who is going fast in time.

Looking back not even sure if the rhyme is going to make a nickel or dime.

But I think as we

Collectively bring against our sensitivity

We put ourselves in the position which could take us higher.

We may be inspired.

To do the things that seemingly would be something.



Words in Season

Tell the truth.

Don’t be aloof!

Keep it in season and speak for a reason.

What do you gain when you refrain?


Conveys that words are more than a simple rhyme.

Speak in season.

You are gifted for a reason.

Words can deliver and they can make your quiver.

From the inside words can be the divide, or make you ride the high tide, with your thoughts open wide.

The right words can make you fall and be willing to give it all.

The wrong words can go unheard, inferred, and transferred to break-

Your spirit

what’s in a word?



Have a word shower.

Recreate the energy.

Develop the synergy.

Through what is spoken, words, leave a power token?

Are you open?

Receive what is a mystery.

Think in syllables.

Words can be unforgivable.

Visible and often formidable to downright despicable

Try to be liberal with words that will cultivate.

In this there is no debate

Use your words to motivate.

Elevate and activate that within you.

It is never too late!

Images of You

History creates the mystery, but what is it that you see?

You see the images, diminished, wait your life is not finished.

Cultivated by the past wondering, will your song last?

Giving it another sound may bring everything around

It very well could turn your frown upside down.

Make time in this space to see this race.

Are you running at a good pace?

Or do you wear the scars upon your face?

Has the race created another place, oh take a taste.  

That place is not the sum of what you hoped.

Yet in the reflection of it all you are so much more dope !

What you are as a shooting star it does not matter what is off afar.

Between you and me you have great possibility.

As you remove all that binds, it’s time to get off your behind (time).

What is it that keeps you from driving forward?

Striving onward?

You see life is like a car, it moves forward, has a rear view, it has rear lights, left hand, and right-hand turn signals.

But you have to decide the acceleration of your manifestation.

You have to decide when to go (forward) when to stop (the madness) when to turn (your life around)

Where to set your direction or your course,

Don’t determine your destination by your hesitation.

By your reservations

Take that image and drive it to the finish.

Know that you are destined to win, even if you have to begin again.

Present in Life!

Sight to see new heights within me.

Driving aware as I pull my hair out from despair.

What will I wear, who will care?

Where will I go, who will show?

What should I do, if only you knew?

Maybe I will return to my bed, getting up is often all in my head.

Getting up is not just physically, it is mental and referential.

Why you may say, let me ask, what did you do today?

You got up, but are you woke up?

Are you striving or simply surviving?

Are you achieving your goals or making a mark showing the start of a plan?

Is the game the same?

Is the attempt being mimicked?

Or the effort peppered by another excuse, oh what is the use?

Come and let’s be what we are sen-ti-men-ti (ly) meant to be.

Who are you by design?

What must you refine?

In this day, come what may, always say epically.

I am here to be







My Fingers Speak

As I move my fingers over the keyboard, I contemplate what is the next word that will inspire to bring you higher.

See my writing is not just about me, but what I aspire that you may acquire the inspiration that will cultivate and motivate.

Take a ride within me over these heartfelt words you see and rejuvenate, as we celebrate, the remaking of you (inside out).

Although my words are often unheard as I don’t have a following of “likes” or the platform (who would care) to share the grace of what my heart has felt from the start.

Why you may ask as I pen these words do I write for those seldom heard, never seen, or known and I would say it’s because we are connected by time. By space and together in the race, as we run towards the –

Time of life, time of season, who knows one day we may meet.

Take the time and divide the line that sooths the spine of what is divine!

Read each word, think of it deep, if you think long you will be on your feet.

Celebrate and contemplate what you are as you create the next date!

That date could be a grand step you see as you make the decision to cultivate your mission, it’s all part of your vision.

What is in your vision, don’t you know you are on a mission?

Think of that which is deep within and walk towards it.

Then begin to speak the breath of life over it.

Never lose hope, set the scope and hone towards that which was dim as you illuminate all from within.

Deepest and True

I am afraid to move on, afraid of what lies ahead. How is it that where I want to be and what has come to me are not in agreement. I mean really, what is it that I am to become meanwhile I shudder at what I am, overlooking what is meant to be (but suddenly, what do I see?).

Metaphorically, it could be, maybe or someday rationally thought out of me. Life is in constant flux and in the flow of the day I always find a way.

Poetic at best, unlike the rest, but never do I see what is in front of me. I guess to be blinded purposely.

You may wonder, or maybe don’t even care, what it is I am laying before you, but take a few minutes to dig deep within and cultivate the presence of truth.

Truth is not always welcomed and certainly not embraced, yet it takes that breath of doubt away.

May this year as we seek to find we may come across that friend of mine.

My friend looks within and sees the depth of truth then unravels the ways of you.

Be kind and unwind then define that which respects the time.

Take a few and determine the rhythm which celebrates who you are and do.

Do that which you may think cannot develop and be.

Become that which you are destined to be and not because of me.

See that you can be because you are intrinsically meant to be.

Focus During COVID-19

There is a reality that we are facing right now and it is that we are in the midst of something different. To have our lives placed at semi pause as we try to understand what is happening as we see this Global pandemic unfold.

What has happened across the world to impact so many people, it knows no boundary; demographics are broken barriers and culturally it has no preference.

Our first reaction is to panic, to have fear over the unknown and to go into fight or flight response which occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival. We have seen this through the many stores we have visited where there is no “toilet tissue,” and no “sanitizers.” And if you were to ask someone why that it is, they really could only say that they saw the shortage (as I heard on the news) and felt a need to protect themselves and their families.

I mean I get it, I really do. We are in a crisis. Yet, I want to encourage each of you to FOCUS. Put your 20/20 vision on and look at what you can control. Surely we know that if anyone of us could end this, it would have never started. But now that we are here how do we manage? I want to offer you these tips.

1. Stay In as we are told by the executive orders.

2. Stay prayerful and believe that God hears your request (Psalms 91).

3. Practice the requirements issued by our government as it relates to social distancing and sanitization.

4. Try something new while you are confined. Make a new meal, create a new plan for self improvement.

5. Grab that dusty book off the shelf that you said you wish you had time to read and start.

6. Workout while you are indoors. Do isometrics if you don’t have weights or a gym at home. Do sit up and push ups. Walk from room to room. Trust me it is better than sitting and eating all those cookies.

7. Learn a new word everyday to increase your vocabulary.

8. Make sure that you send love to your family and friends, everyday.

This list could go on and on, but if your start these I am sure you will create a more personalized way to stay focused during this time. It is so important that you don’t become boggled down by the restrictions. Especially in your mind. Physically we cannot do what we once did, but mentally we are free to create and become what we place in our minds. Then we can look back later and see that good did come from a bad situation.

May each of you find strength and I pray safety over you and your family.

Is the Silence too Loud?

Check out my YouTube channel: Silence the chatter. It is about inspiration and giving our listeners a place to lift up the inner spirit and find enlightenment within your day. But what is it about the silence that no one wants to dwell? Oftentimes silence is a really good answer to all that you seek. When you take the time to block out the chatter and truly get deep within you, the answers you seek can be found. So today I ask you is the Silence too Loud? Embrace it and grow!

Leaving A Legacy

Toni Hollis - Empowers

A wise man leaves an inheritance for his childrens children, Proverbs 13:22.

All my life, no not really, ONLY since I have come to know the Lord as my personal Savior, I  have spoken life into my children, those I encounter, to position themselves for legacy.  To leave a legacy for the next generation to follow.  Each decade of life should be purposed with a renewed since of who you are and Who’s you are.  Getting stronger and stronger. If we position ourselves to become the reflection of destiny; deeply rooted for the stage of life that we are in, we find ourselves able to develop the offspring or the branches that can be further extended within our families and within our Communities.

Each and every vessel or vein travels on its pathway  to another destination that once it has travelled it shall accomplish that which it was sent to…
