The 11 Things You Need to Know (At Any Age)

This will eventually be a coffee table book. The following will describe the world at it’s most raw level. Every moment of your life should lead up to you learning the following 12 things. If you haven’t figured them out, you will:

  1. You are awesome. Nobody gives an eff about a keloid scar. People out here are trying to pay the rent. The fact you can pay the rent, speaks VOLUMES over some stupid scare.
  2. There IS a Higher Power above you. Whatever your believe, whatever name you speak: Jehaovah, Jah, Love, Gatekeeper, Creator, Allah, etc. As long as YOU know that something is guiding you, protecting your life and providing for you, you’re lightyears ahead of the rest. Now that being said, there is no man in the sky waiting to judge you upon your death. Read here for more.
  3. The universe is a living breathing thing. Everything you put into it will manifest itself before you. This includes:
    • negative thoughts
    • positive thoughts
    • guilts
    • regrets
    • joys
    • a future house
    • a lovely family

    In other words, your mouth and the words that come from it, are quite powerful. As soon as you release them into the atmosphere, the universe is required to make it come to pass. It has NO choice!

  4. Love is something you need. Without it, you age prematurely, you get bitchy, you get too macho and you’re just not a good person to be a round. You’re like Karen or Felicia. You just suck. With love, you too can get that lovely, gross feeling of pure intimacy and the connection with another person.
  5. You’ve already learned or your already innately have everything that you need to be successful in life. Think of all of your many talents. The Higher Power previously mentioned would NOT give you those gifts and not also provide you with the tools to be able to use your talents for Him (or Her) and (Their) divine purpose. Isn’t that comforting? Everything you need, you already have! It’s a truth that you’ve just forgotten. Now that you’re reading this, be sure that you remember that truth.
  6. Someday is today. Don’t miss the opportunity. Even if it means late nights, early mornings, no sleep on the weekends; you should know…
  7. Sacrifice is the ambrosia to the success gods. You have GOT to give a little to get a little. And anyone who thinks that they can cut corners in life and still be successful, positive, loving role models, then you should know that there are…
  8. Zero shortcuts in this thing called life. As soon as you try to cheat someone, even if you are successful once you’ve cheated, your small win has caused a shift in the universe. And because the shift occurred, the universe must realign itself. As soon as you’ve wronged someone, someone else is righted, and so on and so forth.
  9. Your f*** up is someone else’s win. Get over it. You’re gonna get the W and someone else is going home with no drawers on. It is what it is– the more you get caught up in the hype or the more anxiety it causes you, that’s only going to cause you to doubt yourself. And why do that?
  10. Ain’t ish fun about guilt, hurt, shame or sorrow. If you don’t want to put yourself down, you don’t have to. You’re better than that. You are a child of the most High, so you are STRONGER than that. If your life’s goal is happiness, DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE UNHAPPY!. As soon as a negative thought comes your way, repeat the following to yourself as many times as it takes for you to believe it: Hey! Go away! Guilt has no place here. I have no room for you here. My heart’s too full of love and joy to have any time for you. I don’t need. you. You don’t need guilt. Without you, guilt would not exist, so why hang on to it?
    How much more effort does it take to believe lesson number 1 (see above)? You ARE awesome. Now, it’s up to you to believe you are awesome. I believe that somewhere right now someone’s noggin is changing in the right direction. As soon as they see the light, they now have a simple decision (note that I said “simple” and NOT “easy”) to make: 1) do I continue to be miserable OR 2) do I decide to be happy? As soon as you recognize that it’s a simple choice, and you’ve realized that you’ve come to the same crossroad often, that’s when you’ll realize you NEED to make choice number 2. Why would you want to be miserable? And I hear what you’re saying —
  11. People don’t want to be sad or anxious or lonely or depressed or whatever the ailment. But you just freaking are sometimes. And I know, I get it — I was diagnosed with clinical depression in 2007. I know first-hand what a stronghold your illness or setback or disability can have on your mind. Whatever you are suffering from. But I believe I’ve found the cure: once you have a negative thought, immediately swat it away. And the next time you have a negative thought, on instinct, your brain will swat it away yet again. Visualize this in your mind’s eye. Once you do, you’ll recognize that…
  12. You must learn to visualize your desire. Channel it, write it down, record yourself saying it, dream about it and as soon as the universe captures your needs, your dream, hopes and aspirations, the universe will fulfill it. It has NO CHOICE! Again, it’s a living, breathing thing — all requests that you bring forth to the world, to the universe? They will most certainly come to pass.

Here’s your action item:

Go forth and visualize the things that you want. Maybe it’s a dream board –I’m working on my second one right now. Whatever it is you desire, put it out in the universe and I guarantee the universe will shift itself to accommodate it. It has to. It has an inferiority complex just like we do and must adjust to the will and desires of those around it. But it’s cool — the universe is cool.

An Open Letter on Self-Destruction and the New Slavery

Dear Fellow Earth Inhabitants,

I recently had a cathartic revelation. It was freeing. It was liberating. Have you ever had the truth just hit you and it was so overwhelming? Not unlike a ton of bricks, I was overcome to discover that God did not make me to hate myself. Some may snicker, but hear me out.

As some of you may know from past posts, I was raised in Southern Baptist churches. And I always grew very anxious around the subject of repentance. It was as if there was something there that I just couldn’t believe in.

Very recently, as I said, I uncovered the truth. God made me in His image and gave light to my soul through His Holy Spirit. He made you quite perfectly in His image. You can either CHOOSE the light or CHOOSE to go toward the darkness, lr the shadow or evil as some call it, within you.

Find peace in the truth I discovered: you are majestic. You are creative. You are awesome, you’re everthing God called you to be. You have all the gifts and talents that God put in you. Everything that you need to be successful in life, you already have it!

And as soon as you stop believing that your mistakes should be punished through repentance and the moment you realize God is NOT sitting high and looking low judging all of your actions and either condemning you to Hell or welcoming you through the Pearly Gates, you will IMMEDIATELY be free. The chains and shackles of the new slavery will literally dissipate.

Fear has no place in you, anxiety has no place, nor guilt, nor depression or sadness or anger or addiction or struggle or daddy issues or intimacy concerns or promiscuity or any negative thing that you can only see when you’re attempting to give power to the darkness. When you sit and fester on your past inequities or chastize yourself, that’s not God. Thats’s not the light. You’ve just given energy to your shadows.

Soon you’ll discover that the dark within you has ZERO POWER. The only power comes from the light within you, the God within you. When you give energy to the dark, you probably get that feeling increasing discomfort. The reason you’re uncomfortable or troubled by this self-deprecation is because the darkness has no where to rest inside of you. It doesn’t belong there. But you are strong because you have the light of God within you and as everyone knows, even just a meager beam of light will completely envelope and destroy or cast away the dark. Duh.

Be comforted by this.

God does NOT want you to punish yourself. Your mistake, that was punishment enough in and of itself. You don’t need to keep punishing yourself by being anxious or guilty or afraid or lonely. For what? God wants you to be HAPPY, not sad.

Don’t be self-destructive. Stop that. Let it go. It has no place in you. That’s not what God created you for. He made you so that you could lift Him up and fulfill the grand, incredible and fantastic plans He has for you. He did NOT make you to lay down, completely inept because you feel too guilty over your past regrets.

For people who feel weak, you will find the strength you’ve desperately been searching for when you make the choice to get up, shake it off, forgive yourself for believing the lies of the dark, and keep it moving.

Walk into victory people. You don’t need chains. You don’t need to put yourself into the new slavery. Be liberated with these thoughts.

Love,

Marrissa

Future Memories

Memories
Memories

The corners of my mind confine time.
The true memories play in rewind.
Our memories refuse to stay behind,
Complacent with overstepping the line,
We’ve defined

Those sweet, distant memories
Those once infant memories
Like the moon replaces the light, memories
Let it loose inside, great memories

Remember the sultry summertimes?
Days spent wrapped in hammocks, favorite pastime
Nights spun in wanderlust of our passion prime
I miss you today, a cruel love crime

Memories,
Memories.

Light the corners of my mind, memories
Let go the tears of behind, distant memories
Can’t wait to share these memories,
Soon to be precious memories.

Memories;
Memories.

Our Love

I know you’re the one. Aren’t you appalled?
Why are you always so cool? Like you were already involved.
You cuddle me so hard. Your scent the scent of man meat.
You tickle me too hard. Your long fingers a quick release.

I feel the world spins when I’m with you. Aren’t you enthralled?
Why are you so true? Like this isn’t a Paul.
We drag and drop away to bliss.
Oh what freshness is this.

The vibe is set and you’re the truth. My eyes are set, we’re good.
We babble on and on an on, like the inability to end a poem.
We drag and drop until we dismiss.
Oh, what spottieottieidopaliciousness is this?

Use Me

Trust me. Love me. I need you around.
Touch me. Lose me. She needs this.
Would you believe me if I said I’m in love?
Or would you turn away the dove?

I need you to trust me. This is my first time around.
I need you to touch me. She needs this loss.
I know you believe in this love.
Or do you only believe in the above?

Don’t trust me. I don’t need the shame this time around.
Don’t need you to touch. She doesn’t need be lost again.
Don’t believe in love.
Don’t believe in this love.

Freeverse poetry

Don’t waste this high
We’re too far up for us to go back to life
How can we look down when I’m looking at you
You give me life, I can feel the changes.
I can feel the dangers. Even a small lighter burns a bridge.
I can’t feel the gains. We’re too elevated.

Don’t waste this time.
We don’t have too much left don’t burn this bridge.
How can you look away when I’m dead in your face.
I thought I gave you life, that you could feel the changes.
You can see the faces. You can see the lives of the famous.
You feels the lows. We’re lost through the famous.

Sophisticated

We’re just beach bums,
falling, yowling, howling, tumbling
fumbling,
bumbling.
To the place where we once grew.

She’s just my beach bum,
patrolling, holding, folding, my tumble,
fumble
bumble.
To the place where she once knew.

They will beach bum it, too–rowing, mowing, towing, my nimble,
bimble
thimbles.
To the place where they’re so new.
