I Still Love Beautiful Things

I may have had it rough and bumpy,
The highway screeching and screaming,
But I still love beautiful things,
I will hold on to the steering wheel a little while,
For I can’t give up hope,
Or, to be bolder, giving up is too costly for me.

The journey looks endless,
The horizon stretching afar off,
But I still love beautiful things,
And as far as it takes, I will go,
Braving the vicissitudes life has generously served,
In the journey to the cookie jar.

The past is dark and bleak,
I’m tempted to click the backspace,
The present is shaky,
My soul is afraid,
But I still love beautiful things,
And I will brave the tides.

You know it better than I can narrate it,
That I have lost countless relationships,
So you think I may need to lower my expectations,
And settle for anything that has breath,
But I’m sorry, For I still love beautiful things,
I’m going straight for the dime piece ☺️.

The last time I tried the bargain,
The prices crowded me out,
So you suggest that I take your gift,
And endure all the disrespect it comes along with,
But you seem to forget that I still love beautiful things,
I refuse to tarry long in spaces I’m not celebrated.

I’ve been inconsistent in my spiritual walk,
You’ve declared me a hypocrite in shoes,
So you feel better than me because you, unlike me, is an outright sinner,
Do you think I will be bold enough like you?
I still believe in beautiful things, for heaven is a beautiful place,
That’s why all dens of doom are filled with colors to confuse you and me,
But I’m gonna fight till the conflict of the ages is over.

So when you see me raising the standard,
Don’t worry about me,
I’m not just going to eat whatever there is on the table,
But the good of the land,
For I still believe in beautiful things,
And to gain it, I will die fighting.

  3. Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God’s ideal for His children,
    Never settling for less since it’s not God’s ideal for Us. Blessings brother.

  4. It’s within the provisions of the human ken to see beautiful things. Remember to always appreciate the beauty before complimenting nobody hates that.

    Meanwhile this witty pen grew bolder on these lines….”You know it better than I can narrate it,
