Poem for Poets United's Midweek Motif: Blessings

Heaven is right before me
I've never felt this free
since I got out of your chains
I'm never coming back again

And now I'm seeing the face of God
in this newfound mindset I've got
I just need to rise
from the depression inside

You know
wake up
You're allowed
to be in love
At least try
to live your life

And when I finally see
all the things I've been missing
I'll know I don't have to fret
We're never too old to be blessed

We win
when we forget, forgive
make our goals happen
start anew, make friends
Don't waste our lives
feeling hopeless inside

We all have to strive
to be blessed for life...

(blue jeans, black jacket, red heart, green brain)

when i wear my blue jeans

with a black/gray jacket above 'em
I feel like Levi from them magazines
a confident man walking in rhythm
ready for new exciting efforts
ready for school, church, or work

when i wear my blue jeans
it's not because i'm trying to look mean
or that i'm trying to be seen


the mindset is to go with my mood
the mindset is it's what makes me look and feel good

forget about colors
forget about attitudes
forget about hatred or being an 'ist

when i wear my blue, black, brown, gray jeans
it's because I want to express what's within

I want to be taken seriously
I want you to treat me respectfully

Hey, I love my reds
I love my greens and my yellows
my oranges and my purples
my browns and my darks

I'm just into blue.
it mirrors most of my moods
