Absolute power

image

 

I’ve heard it said that
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

But I’d like to think
that strong moral values
and a propensity to a balanced life
would be a deterrent to absolute corruption.

Though the human mind is sinful,
I choose to belief
there is still good
in this messed up world.

I still think there can be
beauty amid all this chaos.

Come closer

image

 

Come closer.
Don’t just stand there.
Let me feel your touch.

Come closer.
Don’t waste a moment.
Tell me your secret desires.

Come closer.
Don’t make me wait.
I crave your essence.

Come closer.
Don’t be afraid.
Show me your heart.

How badly do you want it?

If you want something bad enough
you’ll find a way to get it.
Success isn’t necessarily measured
by how tall you stand
but by having the perseverance
to keep on trying even when you fall.

How determined are you?

Is your agenda pure and healthy
or is it at the expense of others?
Do your accomplishments 
usurp someone else’s happiness?

How fair are you?

When you climb to the next step,
do you share your success secrets
or do you leave behind the ones
who’ve helped you along the way?

How grateful are you?

Are you ready to push?
Are you ready to fight through the pain?
Are you ready to rise?
Are you strong enough to keep on climbing?

How brave are you?
