Helps my stay at home haiku.
I’m in my bubble.
Headphones, a notepad, and pen,
Making use of time.

They say all you need is a garden and a library.
How cool would it be to start an urban garden at the library?
Did you know you could get hierloom seeds from the library?
THINK BEYOND THE BOOKS,
ask a librarian if they have a seed library.
If you’re swamped by food deserts,
All you need is a library.
I want you to tap into the wellspring of resources made available to you through the the library.
My poems are not poems,
This is me planting the seed:
GO TO THE LIBRARY!
EXPLORE THE STACKS,
Peruse the 630’s,
Learn about container gardening at the library.
They say money doesn’t grow on trees,
Well food deserts don’t bear no fruit.
Who taught us to devalue nutritional value?
It’s like printing your own money when you grow your own vegetables and fruits.
All you need is a garden and a library,
Leave no room for reproof.
There’s a huge difference between wholefoods and Whole Foods,
The library is a place to grow
And your mind in bloom is like a tomato garden on a roof.
May you come to maturity at the library;
The secrets of societies are hidden in plain sight at the library.
But don’t mind me,
I just pen poetics, prophecies, and philosophies at the library.

If children were afraid of failing, we’d never learn to walk.
In your growth, you must be fearless as the child.
Be not afraid of failure,
Not trying should frighten you far more than failing.
If you fall,
Get back up,
Adjust and adapt.
You never lose if you learn from the loss;
But you gotta be in it to win it!
Get in the game.
The game of life is a beautiful thing!
You are one step closer each day!
Walk in your purpose!
TURN YOUR MISTAKES INTO STEPPING STONES!
Failing is an art form.
When you commence to failing forward, you are halfway home.
When you commence the ultimate belief in yourself,
Your mindset will alchemize your mistakes into stepping stones.

The T in Timing is greater than the T in Talent…
the totality of life is mathematic:
everything is everything,
as long at one plus one equals two, you’ll always get your due.
Everything comes back full circle,
don’t ask me why; you don’t wanna know the half.
fb’s on this day reminded me about the time I volunteered at the boys and girls club
as I took a break from writing a proposal for the Y; all I could is laugh.
As the adage goes
“I’m not aware of too many things,
I know what I know, if you what I mean.”
Insight is a beautiful sight;
everything you need is already within you yet that remains to be seen.
They say everything in due time
yet life has comedic timing.
What goes around comes back around again;
all I could say is trust the process,
master your minutes,
and remember as long as your heart’s beating, it’s all about timing.

#FAME… makes a man take things over…
FAME is one of my favorite David Bowie joints; he was absolutely one of the best to do it.
Bowie was rock, he was pop, he was hip-hop, he was music.
Bowie embraced a wonderful weirdness called music.
Who-the-hell-knows, where Ziggy Stardust found his muse;
all I know is before they coined the label blue-eyed soul,
Bowie had the world
[people from all walks of life]
putting on their dancing shoes.
I had a dream…
until I woke up and prepared an action plan;
a step-by-step guide to bring forth the best of who I am.
Now I am living the dream…
Scaling New Heights,
balancing my fears and my hubris
amid tightropes and high beams.
It’s a thin line I walk every day
but I know the way…
To Fulfill My Dreams.
A dream without action
is like a seed that has yet to be planted;
it will bear no fruit.
Although it’s seldom seen
success is a fruit.
As odd as it seems…
A dream without action is merely a wish.
What sense does it make to dream up
what remains to be seen
only to daydream?
Without vision, you’ll perish;
clairvoyance is a gift.
If you have the sensory insights of a dreamer,
never lose sight of the sights unseen;
take accountable action,
don’t let your dreams
Success is a relic
relished few and far between,
because action is not as dreamy
as the dream.
