Faith is. . .

What is Faith to you?

Faith is knowing, even when you are not sure.

Faith is living after you close a door.

Faith is finding joy among your sorrows.

Faith is holding on to hope for all your tomorrows.

Faith doesn’t mean that everything is perfect,

but Faith let’s you know that the work is worth it.

Life comes with hardships. It comes with pain.

Be motivated by Faith and let Faith direct your aim.

Not Mad. Motivated.
Let Faith turn your “Why Me” into “A Better Me”.

A Poem For My Mom

My mother wants to help everyone.

No matter how old. No matter how young.

She cares for family and those known for a while.

Even for a stranger, she’ll go an extra mile.

In times when there’s danger, she never backs down.

Not even when a scary virus is all around town.

She checks for fevers in case someone’s sick.

Being extremely careful and prayer is her helpful trick.

Her job is to help but she never stops there.

There is no limit on when or where she will care.

You Inspired . . . A Not Mad. Motivated. Poem

You inspired me to grow

by trying to make me feel small.

You inspired me to know

by acting like you knew it all.

You inspired my voice

by telling me to be silent.

You inspired my choice

by you being violent.

– A Not Mad. Motivated. Poem

This poem is not about accepting [domestic] violence; instead, it is about accepting one’s experience of it. This poem is about realization of strength, determination to thrive, and turning someone’s hateful acts into acts of self love because. . .
