Tactical

We’re
being
too tactical
in
being us,
so I’m
changing
the
game
a bit
and deferring
to
the next
man to
have
the leftovers.
If you
didn’t
know
already, I’m
not
going
anywhere,
and these
hands
simply
bathe in
the sunlight
and love
you
bring.
Yes,
I’m
being tactical.

Looking

Look
into
my face
and
tell me
I’m
too old,
young, strong,
able,
or wise
enough
for you.
I’ll
tell you
you the
opposite
and dash
for
my
magic wand.

Now,
look
at my
gaze and
tell me
my wise
years
dictate
the future,
but I’ll
tell you
I’m
in
both
worlds
standing
next
to you.

Again,
if we
stand
too close,
look
into my
heart
and you’ll
be
suprised
to see
my
world jogging
after
yours in
low and
quiet
footsteps.

The Tough Decisions

…are often met with tough personalities.

See, whenever I feel down, I can easily spot out my own default steps to cure myself. Typically, it involves laying down on my own therapy couch to analyze and later, dissect my needy feelings into a much more manageable state. Usually, and without too much provocation from any given peanut gallery, I’m successful at this. However, there are times where I’m truly enjoying the cat and mouse game of me getting in the way of myself so naturally, and if you haven’t guessed, I end up right back where I started.

Neither the beginning or the end.

So, the tough decisions are often real easy to make, but generally we’re too afraid to gut-check ourselves in order to manage the necessary risks that are needed to propel us forward.

You know? That place where we gain the most momentum in life.

In other words, the more we think about change, the less we are to actually perform the change. It is only when we align our expectations in understanding the variables that give us the do–or the action behind our words–that the process doesn’t become simply a way of getting something done. In many ways, it transforms into a culture that not only gravitates and draws like-minded people to you, but it creates a stable support system around you enabling your growth to become just that…growth.

“The more and more I think of it, the more and more I want to do it.”

Well, the more and more I do it, the more and more I want to do it some more.

Power and Influence

Start
this
game
by giving
me
what I want,
then
give
yourself
two
shakes
and the
last
few stanzas
of a
desperate
poem
for color.
When
you’re
done,
leave me
to
my elements,
and
close
both
doors
behind you.
See,
this is
my
power
and
influence,
and
if you
know what’s
best,
you
won’t
forget it.
