Poem - Sleep Walking

I walk while I should be asleep
I figure if my mind don't rest then why should my feet?
I sleep walk cause my path isn't made for me
And when you think I'm sleeping I'm working hard you see.
I believe
That is how I am able to achieve
Something greater than what was first given to me.
No father, but that's okay
I was given a Spark
And the ability from God
To hit my Mark
And it's been dark
In my life on a few occasions
No, I'm not complaining - I'm only saying.
I've been on my knee's doubled over in pain praying
Wondering if the moment was it
If the words I'd heard were true - Mark you ain't Shi...

I refused to believe that mess.
And now my pressure is a different stress
But I digress
I repeat I walk while I should be asleep
I figure if my mind don't rest then why should my feet?
To bed at four am up at 6
I wish
Sometimes it wasn't so
But when I go
I will know.
I stretched every once out of what God has given me
So until I'm gone I choose to BE.
So I repeat I walk while I should be asleep
I figure if my mind don't rest then why should my feet?

Stop Dreaming. Literally.

Okay, so maybe I meant Stop JUST Dreaming. As in wake up and make it happen!
You know many people will say they want something but take no actions to get it. Fewer people will take action without passion, without a definite purpose and kind of give some energy towards a goal only to be able to say "Ah well, I tried."
The fact remains that few people in this world are as happy as they want to be or in the shape physically, mentally, spiritually or financially that they want to be. In a time where we can get our hands on information, techniques and strategy's to help us do everything from build a shelf to cooking any dish you can imagine we spend more time dreaming of all the things we'd like in our lives instead of creating a plan, rekindling our passion and persevering. This is the definition of faith - to believe in something, work at something, push for something like it must happen. Faith is shown in action not in words. How much faith have you shown in attaining what it is you truly desire?

Tonight, before you go to sleep - think about just one thing that you want to create in your life. Anything. Then think about it as being certain to appear in your life. Really see it happening. Note how that feels. Enjoy how that feels. Next, keep that thought and emotion within your mind until you fall asleep. When you wake up go through the same process again, except this time give thanks to the Universe and your Creator for the blessing of that thing coming into your life. Then write down (not think) both what that thing is and 10 ways you can start towards it (knowing that it is certain to happen).
That's part one of the exercise. If you'd like to continue please email me. I'd love to be a part of your journey!

Now as your reading this know that this is how I have managed to continually receive many of the blessings in my life. I've been blessed to work all over the world speaking, modeling, acting and just being. And every thing that I've made a must I've made a reality.
So stop dreaming. Literally. Wake up and go get what you demand from your life.

Just a thought.

G'Bye? Nah. See You Later

Sometimes you've got to let go
In order to attain
It's strange
How hard it is to 'open the cage".
A beautiful mess
Is what you've created in me
And I see
That I'm so blessed.
But I'm still a mess
With you
Without you
It's true I see
The beauty of a thousands sunsets
Streak across your face when you smile
And as the song says
"I would walk 500 Miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door"
To fall down on bended knee
To fall down before thee
Before you
It's true...
I wish I could speed up
The hands of time
Or perhaps just turn them back
So that we could either get to our future
Or go back and enjoy our past
I am not Marty McFly
So that adventure will not take place
Instead I will leave
These words in their place:
"If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together,
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is,
even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.
-Winnie the Pooh"
So I say as I wipe my eye's,
Believe in these words from Pooh!
Even if this feel like the other kind,
You know, the stuff you wipe off your shoe.
And like he said at the end of his words
I'll always be with you.
Remember that and this last thing
I Love You.

I Ain't Afraid To Be Me.

I ain't got to be
What nobody else want me to be
And I ain't afraid to be
What I wanna be
So does that make me
A rebel?
A revolutionary?
Well then so it be
That's cool with me
Cause I refuse to live life
On terms that don't satisfy me
And I refuse to answer to anybody
Who wants me to be
"More like them" and
"Less like me"
You see
I am my own man
Built by the hand of God
And so to not be me
Would be quite odd
It's by his hand
That I can accomplish all
And with His strength
I'm able to rise when I fall
It is through His gift
That i have vision to see
That's why I ain't got to be what nobody else want me to be
And I ain't afraid to be
What I wanna be
