The word beautiful

The word beautiful

The word beautiful

The word beautiful. A very simple but very impactful word that often gets flung around like a cheap pick up line. But the thing is, I would like to redefine the concept of beauty into something more related to acceptance. Because beautiful is often linked to something that is closely related to perfection.

And perfection is another term for as good as it can possibly be. The issue is that people WANT something to be better than what it is so that it can live up to the name perfection or beautiful. The thing that often escapes a lot of people is that everything is perfect as is. Which means that beauty is whatever you lay your eyes upon.

The word beautiful is dangerous but amazing at the same time.

Accepting the situation as is and learn how to appreciate the beauty each moment holds is very hard to do. But I am trying to get to the level where I can just be at peace with everything and love everything for what it is. A flower is beautiful regardless of the state it is in. A body is perfect regardless of the size it is.

Understanding that the world doesn’t need to be improved is something that will just escape most people. And that is what this poem is all about. I would never want to be someone who tells others what to do, but if I can guide them or help them realize the beauty in the world … my job is done.

Poetry sets language free

Poetry sets language free

Poetry sets language free

Poetry is this amazing magical tool that allows your ever suffering vocabulary a chance at freedom. A chance at seeing the outside world and all the beauty it can possibly hold. Poetry is the key that will change your life if you allow it to. The most beautiful thing you can do with poetry is gain a new perspective on life.

People often tend to underestimate the value of their words and the way it affects not only the people around them but the very reality they reside in. The issue with that is that most people don’t even want to change their reality. They feel that poetry is just a way to show off all the fancy words you heard somewhere.

Poetry sets language free so let it take your soul away.

But poetry is so much more than that. Poetry is the way to release all those frustrating things you don’t have the words to express. Emotions can run rampant but poetry has this elegant way of cooling it down. This is why I love poetry, and if your vocabulary is a cage, then poetry is without a doubt the perfect way to set it free.

I am sure that this video will reach all those poets out there who feel the exact same way as I do. Because writing for us is the only way the world makes sense. And being able to finally release all those beautiful words you’ve kept to yourself is amazing.

If you liked this amazing piece then I am sure you will enjoy the other videos on my Youtube channel as well. And don’t forget that I recently published a new Poetry and Art book called Pulse. Thanks again for coming and make sure you come back for some more amazing stuff.

Your vocabulary is in prison

Your vocabulary is in prison

Your vocabulary is in prison

There are these amazing jobs out there that require you to know the lingo. You study up till you understand and know each word by heart. You then spend even more time to learn what words might pop up and try to understand every piece of vocabulary related to your position. And then, of course, you also have your personal life. Your personal life is most likely filled with a lot of people you have been around for a long time. It probably also has this built in the routine you keep to, to make sure you remain comfortable.

Its that comfort and constantly being around the same people that create this issue with your vocabulary. Your vocabulary goes into a cage where it remains until you realize that you’re doing a great injustice to every word you’ve never spoken.

Your vocabulary is in prison until you realize that you can learn.

Even in my job, I find myself repeating a lot of the same words over and over because keeping things simple and straightforward is the way of society. I used to use this loophole to make sure I learned new words and was able to put them into my day to day use. But I lost my loophole when I realized that the people at my job didn’t like it.

Because using words people don’t use offends them. Which is very very interesting because the only thing I was trying to do was improve myself. Things sometimes go like that. Here is my spoken word poem about this.

Wanting to be a poem

Wanting to be a poem

Have you ever had a concept bothering you because it wanted to be written out? That’s that feeling of a concept Wanting to be a poem. It wanting to have its moment in the sun because it feels that it deserves to become whole.

I am one of those writers that hear these voices that tells him what to write. These voices are usually concepts and one-liners that crave some attention. So this is what it would look like if I went ahead and showed you a full conversation between me and my concepts. If I told my concepts ahead of time what they were about to go through, they might get scared and stop pushing for completion. Because Wanting to be a poem just might be a selfish thing they didn’t really think through.

Wanting to be a poem is understandable, but are you worth it?

Sometimes I talk to my concepts just to see if they are capable of actually being completed. Because some concepts are beautiful but they just don’t have enough strength to them to actually survive the process of becoming a poem. I have lost a lot of themes and one-liners that just fell through the cracks. Writing is a beautiful thing that helps me process reality in a way that suits my mind.

So this is me showing you what I go through to create a poem. What I put my concepts through to make sure they are worth it and have the drive to see it through to the end. This might just be one of my new favorite pieces.

Don’t forget that I have a poetry and art book out called Pulse which you can buy on Amazon. And don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel for all the latest updates.

I love you

I love you

I love you

Those are three very simple words but when you combine them they hold a lot of weight. The beautiful thing is that the weight that is added can be decided by either party. One side can mean it as a friendly, I like being with you, while the other can take it as you want to be with me forever. Saying I love you is tricky and as long as its open for interpretation it will remain that way.

I love you is a beautiful thing to say.

So what I wanted to do with this poem was to show people what it would be like if a spoken word artist took the time to write a piece about what he felt. This was a very easy piece to write and performing it was even easier.

What I excluded from the piece was the fact that a lot of people tend to want a love that is based on a fantasy. Even I’m guilty of wanting that love they mention in songs. That amazing love that has a whole story behind it, filled with tragedy and beautiful twists. But finally leads to this place where forever is an actual thing. That love where every day feels special.

This was a short but sweet poem and I hope you liked it, let me know what you like about it. I would also love to hear what your love is like and how deep it touched you. And don’t forget that I have a poetry and art book out as well called Pulse. And don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel to stay up to date on everything.

Thank you for coming and make sure you come back next week for some more amazing poetry.

A perfect world

A perfect world

A perfect world

Have you ever thought about what it would feel like to live in a perfect world? If you have I am sure that you had a whole list of conditions the world would have to live up to.  Because no matter how hard you might try, your own preferences will sneak into what you deem perfect. The issue with that is that your definition of perfect might be completely different from the next person. And he or she would also be living in their perfect world. Which means that your worlds would collide at some point.

Will we ever get to A perfect world?

That is why I always try to keep my definition of a perfect world to the basic necessities. The core essentials this world would need to function at a higher level. And to be quite frank, my definitions of a perfect world are very possible if only the right people would get on board. The issue is that this change would require certain sacrifices of the would be rich. And the rich NEVER like sacrificing anything that requires the loss of money. And this world is so hung up on money that it tends to dismiss everything else in search of it.

I wanted to show that this world does need some cleaning up. Wanted to tell a side of the story you wouldn’t often hear and deliver it in a way that might actually resonate with you. I do have to say that I am stuck on dreaming for a better world. Have a watch to hear what I am trying to say:

My soul has always been old

My soul has always been old

Have you ever had someone tell you “ you have an old soul”? I have on more than one occasion. And that got me thinking as to what that really means. For some, it might mean that you are wise beyond your years. Or you like things that don’t fit your age group. To me, my soul has always been old due to the fact that when I learned about who I am, I was already pretty scarred up.

Life tends to beat you down till you mature. And with me, life was pretty quick to hand out blows to ensure my eyes would see the world for what it is. My soul has been taking hits far before I was old enough to understand self.

My soul has always been old because it dealt with everything I couldn’t.

This poem was based on the concept of “what if your soul was a person inside of you?” And what if that exact same person grew up without any help from anyone but you? So all those lies you told yourself, actually hurt your soul. The acts you did thinking that no one would realize, your soul caught and had to deal with.

Those emotions and memories you repressed in the hope that they would fade away, would sit next to your soul and take their turns beating him. Your soul is going through hell because of your actions.  Aging a lot faster than your simple body and when you actually see your soul for the first time it will reflect all the time it spends in your mind all alone. That’s why when I saw my soul for the first time it was old. My soul has always been old.

A good conversation

A good conversation

A good conversation

So I live in a world where I tend to be alone a lot. It’s the same as yours but the difference is I try to be alone. Because I have realized that there aren’t a lot of people in this world with whom you can have a good conversation. When I come across a good conversation I am more than ecstatic because I get the chance to learn something new.

A chance to hear stories I’ve never heard before. Step into a completely different world of experience that will be laid out in front of me and explained. Having a good conversation is like finding a piece of gold that you can learn from and use in your everyday life.

A good conversation is hard to find

The issue I have is that I tend to have these great conversations that lead to a very interesting place. A place where romantic feelings overflow into a stream of possibilities I didn’t anticipate. I just love learning about people and finding out what makes them tick. The thing is, it seems that when people show you what makes them tick, it makes them a bit sentimental. Because being open and honest with someone takes a lot of courage, and when you are open and honest and that person doesn’t run away it means a lot.

Having someone in your corner who listens to you and values your opinion rather than your body means a lot. Or at least that’s what it feels like. But for me, I love talking to people and finding out stuff I never knew. And then letting the conversation die out after a few months pass by.

Have a look at this spoken word poem I did to see exactly what I mean.

Procrastination is a defense mechanism

Procrastination is a defense mechanism

Procrastination is a defense mechanism

When I heard “procrastination is a defense mechanism” I sat down and gave it some thought. Because I always figured that avoiding doing something was just because you didn’t want to do it. But I never really thought about the reasoning behind why I didn’t didn’t want to do something. I just figured that motivation had ups and downs.

But if I take “procrastination is a defense mechanism” as a frame to my actions, I can get a totally different perspective. Perhaps the fear of failure is bigger than the drive to succeed. And their sizes fluctuate so from time to time I will want to move forward and other times I will want to stand still.

Procrastination is a defense mechanism or is it?

My logic then also becomes an excuse. Because if you take actions that don’t bring forth any results, you will stop said actions. It’s only logical to do so. But true drive forces you to keep going even if the results you want don’t come in the way you want them to. The fear of the results never coming can deter me for a small period of time but I will get back on my grind.

So being stubborn helps me to fight my fear. I am more scared of being stuck in routine than I am of failing. But I do get tired of failing, so I do believe you need some time to rest up before you get back in it. To me, that’s not procrastinating its just resting up before standing up.

But make sure you fell first before you start resting. Don’t just start resting before even taking a step towards your goal. Do you agree with that? Watch the full spoken word poem here:

Thanks for coming and have a good day.

Motivation 101 Keep going

Motivation 101 Keep going

Motivation 101 Keep going

The key phrase for motivation 101 keep going is You can do it. There is this invisible wall keeping you from your dreams. What if I told you that this invisible wall was invisible because it wasn’t there. It was nothing more than your own imagination and the only thing really stopping you is your fear of said wall.

A lot of people let that fear stop them from even verifying if the wall is really there. Never let the fear of a wall you haven’t verified keep you from reaching your goals. Take that first step towards your dream. Then take another after that. Slowly build up your steps till you finally realize that this wall people kept telling you about is nothing more than a myth.

Motivation 101 Keep going because you have to.

And the growth you went through to get this far is something worth more than a simple goal. And if there ever is an obstacle in your way, I promise you that its nothing more than your own shadow telling you that the light is too bright. Or perhaps you realize that the form and shape of your goal aren’t what you want it to be. And the panic from that realization makes you not want to get any closer. Or perhaps you realize that the number of steps you need to take will ask for more than you are willing to sacrifice.

If that is the case … you never wanted it bad enough to begin it. You never really desired it because if your goal is all you ever wanted than nothing is too precious to be left behind. Excuses are for the weak and those who cherish comfort over success.

So keep going and reach that goal you set. This was my class “motivation 101 keep going” now watch the spoken word poetry video to get the full blast of what I’m saying:

If you enjoyed motivation 101 keep going I am sure that you will enjoy the rest of the videos on my Youtube channel. And don’t forget that I published a new poetry and art book called Pulse. Thanks for coming and have a great day.
