Poem about trying to quite smoking.

Poem: Inhale/Exhale

That thing that you inhale is what keeps you going

Yes That nicotine is what keeps you alive

At least you think it's keeping you alive

You think that's how all your problems go away

You think that's how you can erase your past

But yet you still don't know

That white straw filled with darkness is what is killing you

But you don't care

You can't stop

You want to

But can you?

It feels so good

You just can't let go

Your left hand is used to holding it between the pointer finger and the middle finger.

But you just can't let go

You need to stop but your lips need to go on the yellow tip

Your lungs need to inhale that smoke

Your body needs to be relaxed

Blowing out the smoke, you think you blowing out all your problems

Blowing out the smoke, you think you don't have to deal with that divorce, or the baby daddy or anybody

Yet it feels so good then you tap those ashes

And remember that you need to stop

You need to quit

You need to stop breathing in those demons and start fighting them instead

I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
