What picture would you paint?

Leave a comment Standard

It has almost been a month and a half since we have been in New Jersey and I must say I am ready to move on. I think two weeks is my ideal time to stay in one place, but a month is the max for me. What can I say, I like to keep moving. For example, I worked a seasonal job in Colorado and it was amazing. The place and the people were great, but by the time we left, I was ready to move on. 

We have a few more things lined up here in NJ such as another Cape May visit, Stone Harbor and more yoga videos to shoot. After that we hit the road. To be honest I am excited to get out west. I have always been drawn towards it and really like the energy. I also like warm weather.

This experience has been great so far, but it is also very bizarre. I can feel everyones energy. When are you going to settle down? When are you going to get “real jobs?” When are you going to buy a house? When are you going to have children? I feel the demands and expectations for someone who is married and in their early 30’s. 

I would be deeply sad if I did not see the world. You see I’m not afraid of the world. I think it is incredible. I like the idea of exploring others cultures because I have an affinity for new experiences, but also to really see what a place is like. Sometimes I think the television paints fear over certain countries, cultures and groups of people and I just don’t buy it. 

I’m going to travel this world; one state a time, one country at a time, one continent at at time. I’m going to document it through writing, film and music. I don’t care if it takes my entire life.

Life to me is not what my parents say it is. It’s not what the church says, nor is it what my teachers have told me. It is not written in a book. My friends all over the country don’t have the answer. I hold the paint brush, I paint the pictures. This is my life. 

My words may be disappointing, but also may be inspiring. I have to ask though, do you have control of your paint brush? What colors would you paint with? What picture would you paint? What would your life look like?

Find Your Freedom,
Andrew

Internal Landscape

Leave a comment Standard

March your energy down the canals
How could you not, stand strong, stand proud?
If I plugged into my voice, would you hear me clear and loud?
Got my wisdom channeling through, you know my energy is ocean water blue
I like to keep it loose, keep it free, feel my energy move, I like to be me
I can create hip hop beats, but rock concerts are what I see
Man I’m telling ya this is gotta be the ultimate dream
What steps do I need to take?
To feel that rush, to feel like a god
Do I have what it takes?
To step towards this future 
To blow the picture of being a loser
I can see the stage with such clarity
Waves of blue ripping through the fifth with such sincerity 
And a heart open wide, I could connect with the crowd
They won’t be saying I’m quiet anymore, I’m too damn loud
The struggle of reelin in the big fish
Gotta be crazy with what is on my wish list
Some days I’m good, some days I’m pissed
But I know I’ll breakthrough, I know I will find that flow
To master the circuit inside, this internal landscape
You’ll finally hear my voice, you won’t believe what I can create

-Andrew

Standing in your Truth

Leave a comment Standard

Sometimes standing in your truth takes courage. People may not understand or accept what you are doing, but that is okay. Standing in your truth takes strength. The judgment and invalidation will always be there, but will you? 

“You talk too much,” “You are weird,” “You create too much,” “Sorry pal, big dreams aren’t real.” The list goes on and on. Whatever you handle, will you let it bring you down, or will you laugh it all away? You might not think you are, but you’re stronger than it. What if you stood your ground and continued on your journey? Where would you end up? Would your vision come to life? 

Standing in your truth takes commitment. The way you take care of your body with a good diet and exercise, you have to do the same with living your truth. You have to be loyal to your cause. Remaining loyal will provide a payout better than winning the lottery. Huh? How could anything be better than winning the lottery? Well, in my opinion, experiencing your dreams is worth more than any lottery payout. The peace, the fulfillment and happiness that comes with a dream are priceless. 

I often read about people giving themselves only a certain amount of time to pursue their dream and if it doesn’t work they close up shop. That doesn’t resonate with me. I’m willing to spend my entire life fulfilling my dreams. So, all the invalidation that comes my way, it doesn’t matter. What matters is my courage, my strength and my commitment. A silly judgment from the sideline doesn’t stand a chance with that kind of defense. 

I’m an unusual person, I know, but I’m willing to let things fall apart in order for my truth to sprout. I’m willing to be patient. I’m willing to be criticized. I willing to endure all the growing pains. I’m willing to fail. I’m willing to succeed. I’m willing…

Find Your Freedom,
Andrew

Souls Gone Wild

Leave a comment Standard

Poetry is clairvoyance
Poetry is clairaudience
Poetry is claircognizance 
Poetry is claircentience 
Poetry is psychic 
To see, to hear, to know, to feel
Poetry is real
Praise your favorite rapper, but poetry is gay
Don’t you realize their song is a poem that they made?
Born in a world where men use saws and hammers
But the tools I have are in my mind
The creative spirit I struggled to find
Here I am, no better or worse than the next man
I just stand here different, playing with different cards in my hand
Please don’t fault me for following my dream
Because in my heart I do believe
This is my identity, this is the real me
The walls are coming down
So will shame, could I be proud?
This is my voice, I’m going to be loud
It was inevitable I would be letting people down
But if you could feel the way I feel now
Maybe you would do the same
Feeling your power, feeling untamed 
No longer plain, no longer mild
Here we are, Souls Gone Wild
