Focus, Confidence, Consistency by KittyFromHell

Follow daydreams
On down, down,
Converting into passionate vision,
Unwavering,
Steady steps.
.
Courageous ideas press
Onward with vivacious bravado,
Nesting itself
Fondly
Into
Deep roots making small valleys,
Entranced at the foot of
No stranger to resilience,
Comforted by it's shade:
Eternity in small doses.
.
Consuming me gently with
Obedience to the
Necessity.
Seeds
Implanted
Seeking
Tender loving care
Enough to
Nurture
Central components.
Yes, yes yes.

...

B)

"Lead With Love" by KittyFromHell

Live as if
Eternity
Acknowledged your
Dance

With ecstasy
In defiance of death,
Talking to the unseen,
Haunted by them daily.

Laugh like a madman:
Often as possible, with
Vicariously beautiful,
Excruciating happiness

...

C)

R.U.N. (from thoughts) by KittyFromHell

Revisiting remembrances rips rapidly, and
Reckless reverie reverses ruthlessly.
Ruined romps ravage repulsive roads
Repeating rashly rebellious realities.

Undoing uglies utmost unsettling
Upon unbound uncertainties,
Unique understandings unveil
Unavailing usurpations of unwavering.

No new note keeping novelty
Nearly nourishes my nitpicking nature.
Nonstop needling, narcissistic nettles,
Niceties never noticing a noggin nicer.

...

Dig deep. Have fun.

Maximum of 3 entries but only one is required.

Words to ponder

Scent of peace
Endless comprehension, caring
Rerouting negative vibes
Elevating the spirits
Need for more compassion
In a world where evil lurks
Together is the strenght
You cannnot do it alone.

Develop and grow
Endless worlds to discover
Above all, live
To the limit before the last
Hour given to you.

Out there in the endless sky
Beauty of eternity lies
Light and dark
Inside one another, a huge mystery
Violence and vulnerability
In this huge void
Only fools think they will survive the
Nothingness of oblivion.

Brevity

''Brevity is the soul of wit'' Polonius, Act II, Scene II,  Hamlet.

Before I finish
Resuming my thoughts
Evaluating, considering
Ventilating between rhymes
Intent on perfecting each line
Trying to reach the apex,
Yes, the summum

Is a sign of hard work and
Significant determination.

To try to achieve the most with the least
High energy needed
Ending with superfluous words being crushed.

So, thus seeking
One's way to briefness
Using but a page or so
Leaves not much room for blah blah blah.

Out with it,  then
Focus.

Write the needed few
Ink to paper must go
To end it with a flourish.

Fight the Power

Forget about force fed feelings of fear
Ignite the idea of independence  
Gather groups of gritty guys, give them gear
Harken, handle the heat without hinderance
Take the terror to them  
 
Tread toward the total truth
Hold hope high with help and happiness  
Everyone elevated to erase emptiness  
 
People prevail with passion and persistence  
Overthrow the oppressive omnipresence
Working wonders with wisdom and will
Empower education to eradicate evil
Reclaim rights with rebirth and reform

Its your Birthday (acrostic)

Incandescence on this day ignites  
The candles celebrating in delight
Special time is your birth right
 
Yesterday, with time to kill
Onward to the bucket list to fill
Uproot, rejoice and raise some hell
Resurect the dormant, party girl, rebel
 
Big it up, flash your ass, flounce your tits,
Individuality on the cards, so light the spit
Rave all night, get dressed up, let down your hair
Tap dance on clouds like Fed Astaire
Happy wishes reign in freefall
Diamond glitter scattered on your ego
Anything to make your parents feel so proud
Yahoo! going on, from today, totally unbowed.

NEVER STOP DREAMING

 
Never stop dreaming
Even when the days seem so cold
Vie and try like you are competing
Energize yourself to reach that goal
Rest when needed to keep control
 
Stop doubting yourself
Too much negativity may slow you down
Overcome uncertainty and hopelessness
Push forward and you’ll gain some ground
 
Dive into your objective with all your heart
Risk something to receive that reward
Engage in that positive state of mind
And things will come to you in accord  
Most importantly always stay optimistic
In every challenge there is opportunity
Never stop dreaming so keep on beaming
Go and chase that dream of yours!
