Glad I Have The Answer (mini poem)

Glad I’ve got the answer (though it’s)
Not the one I want
Now that this is settled (I’ll)
Continue with the hunt

Triangulation (A Poem)

“If thy brother or sister offend thee,
thou shalt take him or her between him or her and thee alone.”
-Doctrine & Covenants 42:88

If there’s a concern, go straight to the source
(The best way to solve any problem, of course)
Don’t burden others with baggage not theirs
Just swallow your pride, and get over your fear

Not trying to be rude, when you blab and you whine (you)
Project on me crap not a single bit mine
Nothing’s resolved, and then others get roped
Theres a way that’s a million times better to cope

We seem to shun conflict, avoid confrontation
While all the while harboring festering frustration
If you’re truly wronged, then be strong and confess it
Go to who’s guilty, then breathe and express it

If you’re really hurting, then I’ll lend an ear (but)
Consider the words someone else needs to hear
If someone did/said something awful to you
It’s no one’s concern except for you two!¬†

The Pro Life Generation (a poem)

“Be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
-Matthew 10:16

Wise as serpents
Harmless as doves
Warriors press on
Armed with love

Do not relent when the
Enemy comes
Persistence will win when
All’s said and done

From centers of hope
To sidewalks & laws
Shall we not go on
In such a great cause?

Frustration and heartbreak
But truth’s on our side
So we’ll be victorious in the
Battle for LIFE!¬†ūüėä

“Shall we not go on in such great a cause?”
-Doctrine & Covenants 128:22

Intellectual Property: Matter Unorganized (a poem)

Intellectual property 
Lines aren’t always drawn clearly
What can I claim is mine to create? 
Where did ideas originate?

If I learn something new, am I free to sell it?
(When someone’s been genius, hard not to be jealous)¬†
If I lay some stake, will somebody sue?
How much do you give credit? Is it even due?

Influences are an amalgamation 
Lessons, mistakes reach a culmination 
But pure creativity is some kind of myth 
True originality doesn’t exist!¬†

Emergency? (a poem)

What you deem an emergency
I may not see so urgently
So carefully, considerately
Think whether not this one’s on me

I won’t be guilt-tripped, can’t be bought
So spare excuses overwrought
May choose to help, or I may not
But if I do, I call the shot

Service never can be forced
I’ll always retain the choice
My own priorities come first and
I refuse to be coerced

The more clearly-defined I live
The more of my heart I have to give

“The most compassionate people I know also have
the most well-defined and well-respected boundaries.”
-Brene Brown

Love Saves Lives (A Poem)

Screenshot 2018-01-21 at 6.24.50 PM

It’s easy to love them after they leave
But what makes them walk through the door
Is a conscience that’s pricked, a heart that’s been softened
And choosing to love them before

Workhorse (A Poem)

“Hammer out my goals like I’m workin’ with my tools.”
-James the Mormon (love him!  )

No time for Netflix
There’s work to be done
Progress is what I
Consider more fun

Sure, I relax
But I’m most alive
When I’m hustling, grinding
That’s how I thrive

Don’t get me wrong
I need (and love!) sleep
But then I wake up (there’re)
Commitments to keep!

Leisure is key
And self-care’s a must
Still, don’t waste your time
(It matters too much)

I work and I work (give it)
All that I’ve got
Feels really great to
Accomplish a lot 

“Work is a blessing from God. “
-Elder J. Richard Clarke
