It’s a Hard Knock Life

Hello everybody!!

It’s been a long time!! I’ve been busy running my new video production company (Vow Creative – http://www.vowtobecreative.com) so I apologize that I haven’t shared anything in a while. By the way, VOW Creative is actually an acronym for Vehicle of Wisdom, so I promise I haven’t forgotten about you!! 🙂

I hope that this post finds you all well and that you’re staying healthy, safe, and sane during these strange times! I also wanted to share a video I recently finished from my dog’s perspective. It’s a parody of Jay-Z’s “Hard Knock Life”. For one, it’s a hard knock life for all of us right now as we try to navigate our shifting environment. And for two, who couldn’t use a little humor to help ease some of the stress? Am I right?!

Happy Hump Day to all – especially those who can’t hump 😉

I hope this video makes your week a little brighter.

I think dog lovers, especially people familiar with the bully breeds, will appreciate the lyrics and visuals of this song. I’d love to hear what you think of it, so leave a comment below or shoot me an email!

Without further ado, here it is!

Can Doesn’t Always Mean Should (A Poem)

It’s true what they say, you know.

You can go anywhere you want to go. You’re not a tree.

You can do anything you want to do. Your will is free.

You can be anything you want to be, so long as you can perceive it.

You can say anything you want to say, so long as you really mean it.

But…
“Can” doesn’t always mean “should”
Can you believe it?

Thanksgiving Parody of Chainsmokers- Closer

Maybe you could bare your shoulders,
lend that jacket that you’re over
to the man who’s standing there
waving cars down at the corner.
You know he’s only getting older
and Christmas is getting closer.
Give before Thanksgiving’s over
’cause it’s only getting colder.

Life Comes in Waves

Life comes in waves.

It ebbs and flows.

Let things come

and let things go.

In the Eyes of a Child (A Poem)

eyes of a child

In the eyes of a child,
Hopeful and gleaning,
Curious and bright,
Wide eyed with wonder.

Through the eyes of a child,
Why? Why? Why?
I must know now.
I. I. I.

I only have two
And I must use them at all times.
This world is a gift,
and these eyes are mine.

Missing You (A Poem)

I miss you my dear
I’m happiest here
In your arms
In your heart
In your mind

I can feel your warmth
Across miles of road
And in the end
I know we’ll be just fine.

New Year Wishes (A Poem)

My hope for you this New Year

is forgiveness of yourself and others,

revival of what matters most,

relationships with friends and lovers.

My hope for you is motivation,

bigger dreams, and inspiration.

Realistic goals and follow through,

these things are my hope for you.

My hope for you this New Year

is healing what you’ve broken;

repairing, mending, letting go

of all apologies left unspoken.

I hope when you look back to where

you were this time last year,

you’re in an entirely different place.

Your truest self is ever near.

I hope that you have grown and changed.

With open arms embrace the pain,

search for joy, and new love, too.

These things are my hope for you.

Dragonfly (A Poem)

Dragonfly.
He says, “I hope you’re doing better
then the day the good Lord called me up.
You’ll be alright.
I’m at peace. I’ve joined forever.
You’re gonna love it here.

dragonfly

I never left you.
No, you were never left behind.
See, now I’m always by your side.”
Love,
Dragonfly.

I AM (A Poem)

Though I’m saddened when you make mistakes,
My heart is joyful when you seek My face.
For I did not come to help the morally right,
but the fallen and broken are dear in My sight.
The closer you come to Me,
the closer I AM.
Though distractions are plenty,
so is My hand…
Reaching out for you daily,
My peace is there for the taking
So if you’re tired of waiting
come find rest in I AM.

September 11 (A Poem)

As the towers came crashing down
and all the bodies crushed but found…
What used to be, no more is there.
It seems our perfect lives are so unfair.

America, America.
How beautiful and kind to me.
Tragedy unites. Our pride goes on.
Home of the brave and land of the free.
