A Brighter Future

                                               A Brighter Future
Silver wishes roam, from my heavenly home—
Where my father sits on his majestic throne!
Pure, sweet angels guard me with love.
The Holy Ghost descends and soars in my heart, like a dove.
Pain and sorrow give me hope for a better tomorrow.
Precious children of God; What I wouldn’t do to meet you someday.
Even if it’s after this life: and far away.
This hope I have within me—like a fire will never dim!
Your possibilities surround me and reach inside my skin!
Today I’ll pray and fast for you my future child!
Someday I’ll see you with the help of the meek and mild!

Infinite Beauty

 Beauty is only skin deep they say.
Then why do they make me feel this way?
What I see or hear in this world today-
Isn't what is appears to be anyway.

Illusions of perfection haunt our world.
Defile your body and you'll be heard.
Sad visions, these women who alter reality.
So they can brainwash our minds and bodies, to corrupt vanity.

When will they embrace truth?
The honesty we learn in our youth.

Virtue is in the eye of the beholder.
We must dig deeper than the surface.
Shallow judgments stain pure hearts--
We need to remember who we are.
With our Divine Potential we can all go far!
