La-Keshia Johnson 1980 (Alabama)

I need to take my own advice and get my shit together. We tend to think Large when we're not able to move accordingly....then when a Blessing arises. Now we're thinking moving and thinking Small. The way ahead is learning, receiving the message and being able to keep the same momentum.

We have to force ourselves at times to believe, believe and believe. The mission may be uneven at first, but we must keep on keeping on. The drive, the push, the rush, the must....all the tings will come when we stay on the right path. Loosen up and allow the Blessings and The Lord to Use you. You have the power and the strength. Use it, use it wisely. Timing is everything and everything will be timed.

@La-Keshia L. Johnson

About this poem

This poem is special and personal. I've been through so much lately and sometimes I just feel like giving up. These words came to me one night while in a deep depression stage. I hope someone gets inspired.
