Always got something to say.
Seeking something every which way,
Not complying with rules and regulations the adults put on display.
Why Why Why?
Adults need you to comply!
If you have a problem with small rules and policies,
You’re going to have problems with the real Authorities!
Save yourself some grief,
Follow your righteous belief.
If the book says obey,
Then obey what the parents say.
Don’t question them.
If you question an officer,
He’s not your friend.
When he says put your hands up where I can see them,
Don’t ask WHY?
Or your chances to live are slim.
When you were born you knew nothing,
Your parents, caretakers had to teach you something.
How to talk, how to walk, and feed yourself too,
Sending you to school to educate you.
Manners are picked up from family and friends you’re exposed to.
The parents are your first teachers,
So what say you?
When you act out and show bad conduct in public places,
Embarrassed your parents are, I’m imagining their faces.
Some parents scared to get the strap,
Some parents don’t take their children’s crap.
Most parents wish they have the best child,
Praying they make them proud and not be out there wild.
People can tell when you act a certain way if you’re a good child or not,
You display bad behavior, and your speech is shot.
Talking sassy and arrogant,
No respect in your speech,
Reflect on yourself and listen to what they teach.
Obey your parents and those charged with Authority among you,
I promise you’ll become a better human being and Allah will bless you!
Peace and Blessings everyone!
It’s about that time.
Oh My we in the middle of July!
It’s amazing how far you’ve come.
When you reflect on all you’ve done thus far.
Look at who you are!
If you have been running or just even been standing still.
What have you done, or doing?
The struggle is real.
You should be able to have something to show for your efforts.
Count your Blessings!
Reflect on the lessons.
Step back and reflect.
Are you keeping your goals in check?
After you’ve saw yourself and your achievements or your lackings, encourage yourself to do better.
Don’t just seek that cheddar!
Blessings are better than the cheddar!
Don’t just settle for less than average either.
Don’t complain neither.
Always think big.
Exactly what is Big to you?
Reflect on the reflection coming through.
Introspection on your direction.
Setting goals and planning an action plan, vision board, organized agenda for yourself, helps you balance and put your priorities in its right perspective.
Don’t allow too many objectives.
Don’t be too hard on yourself,
just take it step by step and maintain your faith in the Lord in the process.
The Lord got this!
Nothing happens without the Lord say any way.
Man plans but the Almighty is the best of planners.
Half way through 2019, and then time feels like it’s flying.
Too many people dieing.
If you’re reading this, be Grateful and give thanks and praise.
We’re not promised tomorrow and we’re blessed for these days.
Before this year is out, you want to look back and say All praise is due to the Most High,
I DID IT!
By His Mercy and guidance.
Make sure your intentions are pure.
If you put the Almighty first and trust Him, He will carry you through.
Your tears, your struggles, your pain,
Are not in vain.
You are going through what ever for a reason.
There is Blessings for you in every season.
A change is going to come.
Evolve and Engage the new you!
You are Awesome and have value.
Don’t let the Devil fool you out your worth.
Be that Light in the dark,
That makes a difference on Earth.
Keep moving on the right path no matter what people say,
May the Lord continue to bless and guide you,
Have a blessed and productive day!
Stress is as silent killer.
When you get upset, it’s a thriller.
People watch you go off like a bomb.
Ticking time bomb.
Exploding because you couldn’t take it no more.
Like those who are stressed,
Grab their chest,
And hit the floor.
If you are serious about your life, and your health,
Make sure you release whatever it is that is causing you difficulty, including some of your wealth.
Relationships, jobs, uneasy situations, let them go.
The cause of your stress, if you know.
Educate yourself on this matter,
I heard this scenario made my heart pitter patter:
Imagine holding a cup of water,
And you hold it for a long time,
It becomes heavy,
Stress can be heavy on your heart and mind.
If you’re holding stress for a long time it can wear you down.
If you hold a glass of water for a long time, it would weigh you down.
Stress can be a test.
You need to release the stress some how, some way,
I care about you, no time to play.
Take my advice and STOP holding the STRESS its going to tear you down.
You’re a beautiful soul, we need you around.
Life is too short,
And time passes too fast.
Take care of your self so your life can last.
Rejecting the desires,
Denying oneself food,
Reading the Holy Book,
Keeping a good mood.
Praying the required prayers,
Doing good deeds,
Refraining from bad habits,
Helping with people needs.
No eating or drinking,
No thoughts of negativity,
Just for Allah
And my future prosperity.
My perception of getting to College Graduation is an achievement of a lifetime.
I’m happy for the achievement and the Blessing is mine.
It’s like the step into a new world of challenges.
A raising of an Anchor on a journey with balances.
An obstacle just jumped over and relieved that one made it.
It’s a wonderful Achievement, Own it, just paid it.
The price to have A seat at the table with others who worked so hard to accomplish the same goal.
The pass to greatness and an opportunity to make a difference, a boost to the soul.
One can now face the world and inspire others to learn, and create.
You can embark on things and become Great!
Great ideas to seek and unfold.
Making history that’s yet to be told.
College graduation is like one of the best events in ones life that is a memory and history and part of ones foundation of their legacy.
You can start a Dynasty and be the greatest anyone could ever be.
Representing the scholars who blessed you with the knowledge they obtained.
You will have a seat like an King or Queen and a position sustained.
Its empowering as well as rewarding when you finally increase your knowledge and raise yourself to another level in life.
You were persistent, you were courageous, you have been faithful, you are smart and sharp as a knife.
You are on fire for hire, and that heavy heart is now weightless,
You can now blaze through your next goal and feel that feeling of….
