Why is self-control so hard to master? Momentary lapses lead to pits Can’t help but feel I need to grow faster Same vice, endless lists Punching holes in my integrity Dipping my character in darkness To put up a shield is my duty But I’ve made foolish repetitions a business

mattkinger: How often do you find yourself wishing you were someone else. Not even a celebrity or a friend, but a different version of you. Do you ever wish “I wish I was a less shy version of me” or a more serious version or a more chill version? Well here is the deal, you have to stop it. Now if it’s “I…

These lyrics will always be in my top ten. We are all here for a reason on a particular path You don’t need a curriculum to know that you are part of the math Cats think I’m delirious, but I’m so damn serious That’s why I expose my soul to the globe, the world I’m trying to make it better for these little boys and girls I’m not just another individual, my...

I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. - MLK jr Is this really true?
Exodus 24:10 And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity What we consider precious and of high value, God uses as pavement.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree - (German) Martin Luther

When I say… “I am a Christian” I don’t speak of this with pride. I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
People often ask me, “Since God is all knowing why did He make a forbidden tree” But you know, if God removes temptation, then what choice do we have??? We just become programmes dont we? if we have no choice but to do good, then that’s no choice at all…
The Only Answer
doggerel-haiku: just because i don’t respond doesn’t mean you’ve won it’s hard to see the answer when you can’t see past your education there are times you need to stop look and listen before you speak there are times you need to put yourself in someone else’s shoes there are times you need to remember that just because you know an answer it doesn’t mean it’s the only one.
If we lived in a world Were vision was a mystery Would our words Be in utter misery? From falsettos to octaves In shouts and whispers Words will form our enclaves Yet sting like vipers A world were beauty is discovered by touch, sound, smell and taste but sight is not featured there would be no haste The famed mountain rose Would be of no greater esteem Than a valley’s poppy, woe for prose But...
Ambition Over Adversity

gnarly-carly: When you find a man Who transforms Every part of you Into poetry, Who makes each one of your hairs Into a poem, When you find a man, Capable, As I am Of bathing and adorning you With poetry, I will beg you To follow him without hesitation, It is not important That you belong to me or him But that you belong to poetry.

And I’m sitting here thinking, “Lol dumb fools, I’m on Tumblr”.
Reblog if you stared at this until it ended.
power of an apostrophe
I struggle with my imperfection Turmoil in my soul Is a restless commotion My vices make me pay that toll Sinner by default, saint by redemption Yet iniquities lay in this vault My joy is not for auction So I accept the cracks Without them there is no illumination I do not raise a white flag For I must relinquish these transgressions But my humanity, you can’t subtract So here I am with my...
i was just looking at poems in tumblr its amazing how much effect people have on our lives. Relationships are the nourishment of our existence, i think it’s paolo coelho that said build strong impenetrable walls and you will never be hurt but you will always be lonely but bring the walls down and you will get hurt but you’ll have those who care. Something along those lines… ...
What we do today will become the past tomorrow. What am I doing today and how will it affect my future and the future of those around me? What about you?
Brain: Any questions?Pinky: Just one. If Fred Flintstone knew the giant order of ribs was going to tip over his car, why did he order them every week?[Later]Brain: It was an end title.Pinky: What?Brain: Fred Flintstone doesn’t order ribs every week.

Everest and Kilomanjoro bow before you Amongst planetary hills you are the greatest for holding the weight of the creator as He emerged from His throne for enduring the quakes as those around you skipped like rams the clouds in fright thundered applause as the stage was cast and you played your part sparks from the heel of the Almighty graced your roots yet with courage you stood ...

i made a decision a week ago to stop clubbing. I mean, do i want to have a future relationship with someone who’s in a club? Can you imagine our story being, “oh yer we met in this club, she was grinding on this guy and i just came over you know…” NO. I don’t know if my actions are drastic But i’m gonna stick with it. Lately i’ve been wondering how can...

If i were to ever get a tatoo, i’d get these words inscribed on me: “Let Freedom Reign” - Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
Your presence makes it difficult to enun Enu Enun Enunciate, Lost for words Yet humming a chorus I try to take my gaze off you I’m stuck As a tide to an ocean What is this potion? Overflowing detail The glaze of your neck The raise of your cheeks The praises that I seek To describe how A flash of your molars And the occasional canines Can have me so Lost for words Yet humming a chorus Of which I...
Like a motorway needs traffic lights So I too, need you My thoughts are in traffic at this junction As a seemingly endless highway That leads to your heart Lies ahead How fast can I possibly travel those miles? I sit in my vehicle of anticipation Staring at your red light Never have I so much appreciated the colour of grass The colour of leaves It’s only natural that I want to see green But I...
People fear the DEVIL, more than they love GOD.. I‘ve been wondering lately, how can i fear God? I love God but how do i prove it? God says obey and listen to my commandments, i admit i dont obey all the time but i love God. i will never deny God, i have never denied Him, yet i don’t think i have that same reverence the israelites of the old testament did. but thats not the type of...
