Its one of those forever things,
my crown, when you smile
Committed despite the distance
It was worth every mile

With God, all things are possible
We became lawfully wedded
Vows and promises made
Meant to never forget them

I held fast, you stayed by
my side, for better or worse
Making dreams a reality
Dusting off all of the dirt

A new year means more life
Its worth the celebration
Every day's a new day
For heartfelt rededication

Tobe said, "this love thing
just aint no grab and go...
You have to pour everything inside out
Pray it dont hit the floor"

We just imperfect people
Choosing to share life together
Becoming one through the process
Because its now 'til forever

[pushing through together for better or worse]

Long distance is hard
Hate sleeping alone
Awake throughout the night
Not holding your own

Overthink, toss, and turn
Tomorrow is here
How the rising sun beams
But your conscious aint clear

Cloudy and foggy
Full of emotions and memory
Missing the ones you love
Longing for their presence and energy

Expecting for the time
That you could unite
Unsettled until then
Trying so hard to fight

For that day to come
Close, in each other's arms
At last, the distance
Doesnt feel like fatal thorns

The truth is, of long distance,
Long distance is hard

I wonder what you think about when you lay down next to me... When I sleep, do you sleep, or internally question me?

How quick do you jump when Im up and you see the phone was right next to me? You scroll and search, hope to find dirt, and continue second guessing me...

Sweatin me, when you taking certain things out of context, stressin me, when I tell you how Im tryna be honest, selling me, tellin me how you respecting my process, only to continue to do the same thing again and again like you obsessed...

Its not a sport, nor is it fun, when it feels like there's a gun, behind my back and at my head, wishing what we had was dead...

But you still not using words to talk to me or ask me first, to let me know what thoughts still linger, what doubts you have or your distrust...
You tell me all is fine; that you have nothing to say, then we go to bed at the end of the day

But still, I wonder what you think about when you lay down next to me...

self so sophisticated
seeking soul-satisfaction,
showers soaking seeds sown
shining sun stimulating senses,
sending surreal, significant signals,
saying: "see...

... you are more than enough!"

There is purpose for your pain,
and progression after perseverance.
You need only to be patient and
keep pushing through the process...

endure | persevere | conquer

The past and present, before and after,
lows and highs, are no disguise.
Yet to my surprise, the bad and good,
they build us up, as life should.

To persevere is to prepare
for the battles that are to come.
If you fail, just try again
to prevail and say you won.

Not to brag, but to be a winner,
learn from the losses; with it comes wisdom.
A smarter self, a stronger soul;
Those who never try will never know.

Dig your feet deep in the dirt.
Don't be afraid to put in work.
Do your best as if it today
did not promise you a tomorrow.

You are my bone and my flesh
My hands and my feet
My servant and my friend
My people and my sheep

My sons and my daughters
My siblings and my offspring
My disciples and my witnesses
You are all of these things
You are mine ...
- Jesus
