Absence

by Sieara DeLone

Absence.

As I walk down the street, I feel the absence.

The absence of needed souls.

They walk among us.

We’ve known them all

& it doesn’t really hit you until it hits YOU.

Presence.

Please present me with the present of presence.

Souls, all here to make a difference,

Make a change,

Make the world a better place,

Fill the w–

Fill.

But how can we fill through the absence?

Why do we kill through the nonsense?

Why sit still instead of conference?

Is it real? This is nonsense.

Because we are the epitome of our own issues.

All of our issues can be fixed by us fighting for a change & making a change,

But we drown in self-pity,

Wallow in depression,

Sink into death.

And  in this day & age we are victimizing ourselves.

And in this day & age we are victimizing ourselves.

AND IN THIS DAY AND AGE WE ARE VICTIMIZING OURSELVES.

We let others negatively impact our lives.

We let the opinions of others force us into the mindset of being stuck where we are.

We let ourselves forget about faith, consistency, and hard work.

We let successful imaging make us think the road is easy.

Thusforth forcing us into a mindset of a spoiled rich child being handed the world on a silver platter.

So while we are constantly blaming others, think again…

We let….

WE….

So if WE are to blame anyone,

Blame yourself for where you are

& thinking you’ll get anywhere else doing the exact same thing.

I dare you to look in the mirror & blame yourselves.

So are you past it?

Are you ready to take responsibility for your own life: career-wise, emotion-wise, etc.?

Good.

Because I dare you.

I dare you, if not satisfied with your money situation,

to stop whining about it, get off your butt, and WORK HARDER.

I dare you

If feeling alone,

to find a parent, or a friend, or a completely new person.

Find someone to trust.

Ventilate.

Confide in someone.

But that’s the easy part.

I dare you

To kill those thoughts of depression, and oppression, and recession, and death.

Replace it with the belief in a God more powerful than all that.

Replace it with faith.

Yes, sometimes you walk alone,

but God didn’t bring you this far to leave you

Don’t let the devil deceive you

Stop caring how people perceive you,

and learn how to stand up and be you.

I dare you to take the gun away from your head

I dare you not to take the easy way out

I dare you to draw up the courage

I dare you to live

I TRIPLE DOG DARE YOU

And even if you don’t feel you have the strength to stand,

IT’S OKAY TO CRAWL FIRST.

Just live.

Live life to the fullest through its low points so you have an amazing story to tell at the end.

Don’t let your story be one of tragedy.

Don’t place the end at the middle.

Just live, live, and LIVE NOW,

because I refuse to live in a generation of absence.

And if these words are too harsh for you, let this come through.
When life is tough and you feel no one cares, baby I do.

And we all understand your pain, cause, hey, I’ve been through

And before you think of letting go, just know I love you

And babe, don’t turn ya back on God he’ll always come through

And the devil ain’t that powerful, don’t let him front you

Cause all this mess you going through, it’s almost done too.

I know that times is hard. You feel like planes are crashing.

But the world still needs your soul. We still need your passion.

This is just a thought to console you, while the time is passing.

 Cause I know you going through, and you done thought of passing.

But this is what I do, and yeah I’m taking action.

Cause I’d hate to live in a world without you, and live in a world of absence.

Unveiling The Gem

Hello lovely ladies, I attended a Precious Stones convention for the past 4 days, which was about unveiling a gem in every single woman. It was an amazing experience and so uplifting. We must all become women of excellence, true beauty, wealth, fear of the lord, strength and honour, wisdom and Good works. All mentioned in this poem i was asked to present at the convention. I hope it blesses someone as much as it blessed me. Stay blessed!
Unveiling The Gem
Unveil the Gem Who can find a woman, Of Moral Excellency? She is rare, yet she is a pride to have, She is valuable, Her price is far above rubies, She is expensive to have, An uncommon jewel, We shall find her. She has an excellent spirit, She is meek, with a quiet spirit, Building her house with her hands, With wisdom and prayer; She is discreet, chaste and a keeper of her home, full of faith, grace and love, Adorned with wisdom, And the fear of the Lord; Truly decent, sober and beautiful, An unforgettable woman, She is creative and industrious, Adorable, desirable, and sensitive, She is designer made, Soft to touch and to be touched, Feminine, lovely and calm; She always will be, The Creator’s climax creation; Sister you are fearfully, And wonderfully made, And we shall find a virtuous woman in you.

Personal Fasting

post18

“Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” (Matthew 6:16-18).

Fasting, some of you sigh at the very thought. Don’t worry I’m not judging, I do the same. It is one of the hardest things yet at the same time one of the most powerful tools. Restraining our bodies from food/water and focusing on God, what a rewarding sacrifice.

Last week I fasted and let me tell you it was not easy. God, however, is very faithful and true to His word. I remember things that I had prayed for months before hand suddenly happen after the fasting. I can tell you now I was overjoyed. He is truly a rewarder. Then I got to thinking what was so different this time around? It hit me, most people didn’t know I was fasting, nor did I show that I was. Nowadays Christians have become so used to complaining. Am I right? we are quick to forget Matthew 6:16-18. Those who fast in secret get their great reward from God. However, if we fast publically and complain we have already received our reward (the attention). We always want people to know of our sufferings and hardships. We forget sometimes it is best to keep secretive so that God will bless us.

So if you are wondering like I used to. Why is it that when you fast nothing seems to change? well, take a step back and review yourself. Were you doing a public fasting or a personal fasting? Stay blessed!

He is a Rewarder of those who do not publicise.
