Week One: Dominique Watson, Sybil Shephard, Scott Smith

Dominique Watson

I’ve Noticed: I’ve paid Attention

I see little things that aren't the way they should be
I've noticed
I've paid attention
Though I want things to be different,
I truly know they will never be
But the fact of the matter is
I've noticed
I've paid attention
I don't need a life changing moment to make me realize what's happening around me
Because I've noticed
I've paid attention
And in the path that I'm going, I don't have time to worry about it
But please don't think I haven't noticed or paid attention

Sybil Shephard

Whatever it is

Is it the content of my character?
or the color of my skin?
Is it the way I put pen to paper?
As I express my thoughts within
whatever it is: it's the truth,
often it's the reality that sends your anger though the roof.
Mind games;
we all know how to play;
yet the choices and decisions we face occur on the a daily basis.
When things are good or even bad.
Occasionally things get a bit tough;
who knows the next step can lead to victory if we don't give up!

Scott Smith
Passionate Heart

Passionate Heart It is the love within you.
The light of glory, that burns like fire within your soul.
Having an inconceivable talent is a blessing.
Not knowing why you desire to speak with such passion
That inspires others around you.
You have been blessed with a God given talent
The ability to move a crowd to the sound your heart beat. Like the rhythm of drums sounding off one by one.
The chain reaction has begun
I have touched you,
I have done my job
Now it is up to you to inspire someone
To keep love alive, just pass it on
Having passion for life that illuminates like a light from above
Descending on earth like a pure white dove.
I come from the Lord with this
My untouchable gift of a passionate heart.
