Abandoned Nest by Luke Brugger

Your home:
Where you learned to walk
And how to talk,
A space to call your own.
Then years passed
And something changed
Your life was rearranged.
You thought your mistakes made you an outcast.
But home is still home.
It’s not a perfect place,
But a permanent space
Where no matter what, you’ll never be alone.

Who You Are

Why do you hide?
You say, “I’m such a mistake.”
Who told you that lie?
You just went and cried.
I asked why you were a mistake.
You named everything you didn’t possess,
So I told you being true was better than being fake.
But still you chased worldly success.
I wondered why money would fix you.
“Then I could have everything,” you reprove.
But you’re lying, your words aren’t true:
Money can’t buy you love.
I asked you if you wanted to be content.
“Yes,” you said, in awe.
So I told you how to live without regret:
Just be who you are.
Stop hiding.
Stop chasing money.
Stop lying.
Start believing.

Rough Water

Water by Das Sasha

You’re knee-deep in life.

The water rising every day.

You’re lost in a sea of doubt,

Trying to come to shore.

You’ve lived in strife

Trying to find your way,

Rough water rocks your boat

You just can’t take it anymore.

So if you’re lost,

Look down.

There in the water – you’ll see a shadow,

Follow it as it flies to shore.

Sometimes all I’ve got is nothing.

I see you there, too

Your page blank of writing –

Sometimes things need to be empty.

They push and pull

Saying you need to come through

But your schedule is just too full.

Sometimes things need to be postponed.

People parade on you constantly.

Run faster. Stand taller. Get better.

They push your buttons, tell you to change instantly.

Sometimes words are just big lies.

Things need to be empty,

Things need to be postponed,

Words are just big lies


Until Eternity

until eternity

I promise that forever

I’ll love you and only you.

This life will be paradise

Until eternity.

My vows aren’t temporary words,

They are permanent pact.

Every day I’ll come home to you

From now until eternity.

Life can hit us with its best shot,

But we’ll never fall short.

It’s the principle of marriage:

To stand firm until eternity.

I promise that forever

I’ll love you and only you.

Building a Wall

Sometimes we forget that walls are built one brick at a time, not just overnight.  Just like we forget some things take time before they’re completed.  Wherever you’re at: be patient.  All things get built in time.



Weekly Tip: Week 8: What Are You Going To Do?

Recently I’ve asked myself one question: what am I going to do with the money I make?  And I couldn’t find a good answer, a right motive.

Ask yourself the same question: what are you going to do?

Life is more than money, we shouldn’t be able to put a price tag on it.

Daily Tip: Day 31: Listen

Daily Tip: Listen to others, and one day they will return the favor.

I have had the opportunity to sit for six hours and listen to people talk, I’ve gone to conferences and concerts and gatherings to just listen to people.  It’s amazing to think that  words could change the outcome of our day – but they can.  Listening is a powerful, powerful tool.  Try it sometime.

Even if your dreams are small, it never hurt anyone to listen to someone else.
