2 Corinthians 9:8 "And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."
In the gleam of the morning sunrise i saw the blooming of the seed of faith; strength to live another day, peace to let go of yesterday, grace for the journey ahead.
I am blessed going in and going out; wherever I go I carry the beauty-mark of success eternal happiness because I believe I am blessed because you love me I am alive because you touched me
And eventhough it may not be an easy road i recognize that you are here with me, there to guide my eyes to see, hold my hand and lead me through treacherous trail of every trial until I get to promised land of milk and honey.
I am blessed
This was custom poem I did for one of my twitter followers. Currently I am raising money to study abroad in China or Africa. In honor of my academic achievement during graduate study I have been nominated to participate in the Laureate International Scholar Program, a program in which you study international relations and diplomacy in either China or Africa. I have started a gofundme page to raise the money I need to go and as a thank you for any donation I am offering to write custom poems. If you are interested and would like to know more information about the program and trip I will leave the link to my gofundme page below! If you decide to donate make sure to comment with your email address and the subject of the poem you would like and I will email you one. I appreciate any help! Thanks in advance!! Also if you could share the link on your social media outlets that would be of great help as well.
I'd like to tell you a story It begins in 1492 When dear old Christopher Columbus Sailed the ocean blue
He landed on what he thought To be the country of India He stumbled upon a group of people Who appeared to be indigenous
Because these native people Happened to be where he thought he was He called them all "Indians" && somehow that name stuck
They welcomed his group with open arms Even offered them their feast Unaware that deep inside They were but wolves, dressed as sheep
Columbus && his crew Soon ravaged the land They took what they saw Then they took full command
Of the people they found On the land where they landed They felt they should rule So they stepped in, heavy handed
They murdered the people Who had taken them in Set fire to their villages While the victims watched with their kin
Flash forward to the future It's now 2016 It's been over 500 years Since the overtaking by the regime
Future settlers decided To let the survivors live on They designated them small areas Of what had not yet been robbed
These Native Americans, Generally keep to themselves They get by living off their land But now they need your help
The Sioux of Standing Rock Are being horribly mistreated The state of North Dakota Is poisoning them without reason
A pipeline has been built That runs through this Native territory When Bismarck residents didn't want it It was rerouted, how discriminatory
People from all over the country Are seeming to agree They are making the commute To protest peacefully
In defense of an oppressed people Who only want to live But the government is stepping in Even blowing off some limbs
"Let them die, they're not like us" the message the administration is sending It seems that after all this time The battle is never-ending
What exactly does it take For people to see eye-to-eye? In the end we're all just human We kiss, we laugh, we cry
So if you have a heart at all If you know that this is wrong Please join the Sioux in their mission By coming together, we can be strong
You don't have to be out there protesting to help. You can still make a difference by making a monetary donation to help build with Standing Rock. You can read more about it on the go fund me page listed here. Every bit helps. https://www.gofundme.com/EarthLodgesAtStandingRock
