Goodbye 2014!!!

I've been in a mode of reflection; Wondering if I did everything possible to make this year the best possible. Then I realized that, God isn't done with me yet and the best is yet to come!!!

By Your Side

A video posted by Don Savant (@donsavant) on



Until The Day



I know that you’re there…

How?

Because God told me so…



He told me that

He was preparing me

So that I may

Appreciate the preparation required

For you to become visible

To each one of my senses



So that you may

Cause me to

Fog up my eyeglass lenses

Every time my optics

Are blessed to sense your presence…



And I can feel the essence of you

Embracing my very existence

And that alone is the reason

That patience is a necessity

If I ever want

To wake up next to you

Every morning

For the rest of our lives…

Insomnia














I'm wide awake again. Too much on my mind as usual. So much that I don't know what to focus on first. I wish I didn't have to focus on any of it. I've been told to "suck it up" so long by so many that I have no one to talk to about anything. Honestly, "everything is going to be alright" no longer serves as motivation for me. I love God and I know He's there but I still feel so alone at times.

I'm struggling...

There May Be Something To This Travelling Thing...

I've always said that I wanted to travel, at least by car to see different things and people. The furthest I've ever driven so far has been to Myrtle Beach, SC and back, which is about 4 hours away from my home, and to Atlanta, which is about the same distance... Now I've been further...as far as up to Washington, DC but that was by bus.

Yesterday, on my day off I decided to take a short road trip about an hour down the highway to Hendersonville, NC. Doing so renewed my want to just hit the road and go somewhere.

I am in full plot mode!!!

In the Blink of an Eye...

In less than a moment's life can change, either for better or for the worst. There are things in life that we can control, like our attitude, our reactions, etc. However, there are other things tat will happen that no one or nothing can prevent from happening. Those are the things that will either make or break us.

Be not defined by your reaction to the things that happen that are beyond your control...Be known by the actions you chose that will carry you through them.

Love y'all.

Nutrition Information...

I don't know how many of you out there are watching the things you put into your bodies at restaurants these days but if you're like me and have to cut a lot of sodium out of your lifestyle, you'd be floored at the amount of sodium that food in restaurants contain. As soon as I figure out how to post pdf files for viewing here, I will start posting some, just so you can see how much fat and sodium you consume when you're eating out.

Stay tuned.

Love y'all.

Loving Thoughts

Unconditional
Means that
I do
And I will
From now until...
Without doubt...
Without question and
That there will only be
Growth between us that
Will keep us forever evolving
In a love that will never
Ever
Die...

I love you.

-Don Savant

Dear Maya



















@DrMayaAngelou #MayaAngelou

Poetry Is (The Soul of Maya)

Poetry never fails me
No matter
Where I am or
What I'm going through...
Whether it...
Comes from me or
I'm drawn to it...
Poetry is always there...

It soothes my soul when my
Body aches and
When I itch that itch...
That
Unreachable itch that
Nags and nags...
Pushing me towards
The edge of insanity until...
Poetry steps in...
Somehow and some way...
Just to keep my mindset in tact

You can say that
With poetry
I always
Know(the)Ledge...
And I never fully
Plunge to my
Untimely death...
When life arrives to
Kick me when I'm down

Instead I
Continue to
Break all of the odds that have
So strategically been stacked against me
I
Begin to
Take note of the air I breathe
No longer taking
Each rise and fall of my chest for granted

Poetry is a gift...
It is a present
Presented in the present
To preset itself to what presently ails me
Killing all doubt
All fear
And leaving room for nothing but
Love...
Wisdom...
And success in the midst of
Every step
I am blessed to take forward

Poetry is
To me the
Language of God
Spoken through Him
To recover
What may have been lost and I
Am glad that
We were introduced...
I
Am glad to be acquainted with
The very soul of that powerful craft
That I plan to
Use to my advantage
From this day on...

An inspirational Piece Dedicated to the life of Poetry, through the soul of Dr. Maya Angelou

Winter Loneliness...

Winter has been here officially for a couple of months now. This is usually the time when new relationships begin because naturally, human beings crave warmth. Speaking completely honestly, there is nothing better than having another warm body snuggled up against you. I'd be lying if I said otherwise. On a personal level, I've been single for a while now. That doesn't bother me. It hasn't really bothered me for quite some time. However, on nights like tonight, when it's cold and there is snow and ice on the ground, it would be nice to have someone thereto fill that empty place in my life. Just to be able to hold someone right now, not for the sake of being warm myself but more to share the warmth that is in my heart with someone else. It's cold out there ladies and gentlemen and I don't want to shiver anymore. I want to smile a smile of contentment, of pure love on a level that only God can bring me to with the one that He created for me. I want to be able to say or do something funny and have her there with me so that I won't be laughing alone. I have had this wish for quite sometime, felt on numerous occasions that it was about to come true, only to have the bitter cold of hearts that have no idea what real love is freeze me out once again. It is the dead of winter... And I've made it halfway through but I'm struggle with my solitude every step of the way. It's painful to constantly hear what a great man you are and still have no one in your life to show for it... No one to compliment that greatness or to attribute to it. I know I may seem like I'm rambling but hopefully the day will come soon where I'm telling her about these nights I spent alone beforegGod sent her to me. I don't believe my request is too much to ask for. God?
