Just this… don’t believe the BULL$v+! LIES

Bull$v!+ Lies

I admit in the time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 virus, stay at home orders, social distancing and the conflicting news reports I struggle with my own anxiety. Each day when I awake is another occasion to rise up as a warrior despite the fears that may come.

It is a time of not knowing what or who to believe. So, I will chose to put my trust in this…

And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.” ~Mark 9:23

And if this is true, all things are possible, then I cry out with this refrain.

“I do believe; help my unbelief.” ~Mark 9:24

The world tells us you to be, what to do and what say. The world lies because our enemy lies and we so easily believe those lies when we are called to be warriors.

In the words of John Lovell, founder of the Warrior Poet Society

Warrior Poets are those who train and fight for higher purpose. Warrior Poets become students of the art of war so that they may triumph when the enemy calls. ~John Lovell #WarriorPoetSociety #WPSN #Quote

I have shed many tears over the years. Tears of sadness and heartbreak and tears of joy. Tears do not make one weak, they reveal our hearts.

Jesus wept. ~John 11:35

Here’s to the fighters, the dreamers, the doers and those who will stand up. May we all find ourselves strengthen during this time and at all times. May we seek those who are hurting and reach out a hand. May we rest in the promises of the one who is yet to come.

Do not hide who you were created to be and do not let the world break you, for you are so much more than ordinary! ~M #Quote #Motivation #Encouragement #WarriorPoet

A Bull $^*! Lie

image

they will tell you
every chance they get
that boys
are not supposed to cry

time to call it
for what it is
a bull$^*! lie

one that we have all
so easily bought into
in one form or another
no matter who we are

take a deep look in
any boy’s eyes
it’s a bull$^*! lie

you see no tears
welling up inside
or rolling gently
down a sloping cheek

a bull$^*! lie
the tears are real
hidden on the inside

for the strength
of our young men
in the face of tragedy
is emotional courage

stop telling our boys
not to cry
it’s a bull$^*! lie

Where are the tender hearted warrior poets that the world so desperately needs to stand in the gap for others and to battle the evil?
