Craving Leadership

Friday Rant — to be fair I wrote this hours ago. Prayed on it. I’m allowing it to be heard. Happy Friday 😊

I wouldn’t and couldn’t vote someone into office just because – “I should”.

  • When I don’t hear my voice within the nominated you can be sure I’m not placing my vote in their direction. A vote is a reflection of who I choose to be in this world. My voice matters just as much as yours. We don’t have to agree.

I wanna know your heart. I always have and always will. I will love all people because Jesus asked me to love my neighbor and I do.

In my opinion, we don’t vote someone in just so we have something to celebrate, try and create history with a personal theology out of spite, or just decide the trajectory of where we should be going as a world without a majority vote placing it upon an individual who has proven themselves worthy of leadership.

We celebrate because as a human race we have finally overcome and we have evolved. This is the natural way of celebration. NOT because a group simply wants it and forced it into being. Don’t rush. Everything in God’s time, people. (This is why we are where we are as a society.)

When I vote, I don’t care what gender, color or economic background the person has – the specifics don’t dictate my vote, okay. Don’t hear my words as my not caring about what makes someone beautiful.

I listen to them and watch their body language. I need a fighter in my corner, if they aren’t MY fighter I shall not sit still and go along because someone said I should. We choose them to represent not they us. Advocate for change and be part of changing but do not take someone’s right away from them, just because you disagree, by force or manipulation.

We all matter. May the BEST man or woman win. I realize everyone’s version of best is different, but imagine deciphering over two or three oh so very worthy individuals whom people trusted – in any aspect of life. What a world that would be.

Take me or leave me. I’ll be okay either way. ♡

My mom voice is alive and well, y’all.

*And yes, I miss you terribly.

Surrendered

an ache within
for progress;
strengthening,
surrender something beautiful
surrender something sure.

a simple decree
less distress; a little more
happily ever after,
surrender something beautiful
surrender something sure.

apricot visions
release me;
wandering free the verdict –
but far from home,
surrender something beautiful
surrender something sure.

Where I Went Wrong

I flew in in the dark of night,
saw the lights of a city to where I’d never been.


In to a state I’d not once seen,
and a part of the country still foreign to me.


Welcomed with open arms, yet I could not feel them.


Searching aimlessly by my own accord,
instead of submitting to the joys of freedom;


ones offered by just stepping off the plane.

And when I left, I called and told him about the cookies.

Assumption

he found me sitting, legs crossed
black leggins with a bit cut out
just where attraction begins

he smelled all around me,
even the book I was holding.
he offered static pause so I could watch, his energy and legends felt deep within me.
I wasn’t as terrified as most
would have been
his presence came through peacefully
and i found myself worshiping him.

looking back he wandered off slowly, maybe
sensing the aroma of another or giving up on me
and I was left to assume

which is never good.
