Love

Well....today is Monday, and that means "Blog Day".  I apologize for forgetting to post last monday.

Today i was thinking about love, and it took me to a photo on my Blackberry Messenger that reads : "LOVE puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the JOY in a heart."  If you say you love someone...not only mean it, but show it.  When you love someone.....do it with all of your heart.  We should love someone in spite of themselves, as well as in spite of ourselves. Heres a poem i wrote about Love. Enjoy.

ODE TO THE ONE(LOVE) - Steven Strickland aka S.O.U.L.(Spiritual Orator of Undying Love)

ODE TO THE ONE THAT WHEN I WALK WITH U,I TALK WITH U AND DARE ANOTHER BROTHER TO TRY TO START WITH U.....I'M A LOVER,NOT A FIGHTER .BUT I'LL FIGHT FOR UR LOVE. ESPESCIALLY IF IT REFLECTS U SEE THE KIND FROM ABOVE ...BUT WE'LL GET BACK TO THAT. THAT WAS KINDA NICE. I MIGHT HAVE TO GO TO THE LAB AND PUT A TRACK TO THAT.

ODE TO THE ONE (LOVE) THAT MAKES MY HEART SNAP CRACKLE AND POP LIKE THE FROSTED RICE KRISPIES I SO LONG FOR. TO THE ONE (LOVE) THAT MAKES ME PUT PEN TO PAPER AND BEGIN TO WRITE A SPECIAL LOVE SONG FOR.

THE ONE THAT WILL HOLD A CANDLE OF (LOVE) THAT WILL NEVER DIE OUT. A (LOVE) THAT WHEN I NEED A WAY OUT JUST CRY OUT! A (LOVE) THAT WHEN I NEED A WAY OUT JUST CRY OUT!...FOR U(SIGING) UR SO VAIN. U PROLLY THINK THIS VERSE IS A BOUT U. DONT U? DONT U? DONT U?

ODE TO THE ONE(LOVE) THAT FOR LOVE YOU'D DO (SINGING) WHAT YOU WONT DO! DO FOR LOVE. TO THE LOVE LIKE BACK IN THE DAY, LIKE BACK IN THE WAY BEFORE U. BEFORE ME. A LOVE THAT HAS STOOD THE TESTS OF TIME AND WILL LAST BEYOND ETERNITY.

TO THAT SHOULDER TO CRY ON, BOSSOM TO LIE ON AND GIVES ME THE FEELING OF A BRAND NEW SUIT THAT IVE BEEN DYING TO TRY ON......AND IT FITS....CUZ ITS TAILOR MADE... WITH A LABEL THAT READS SACREDNESS. THAT WILL LOVE ME IN MY NAKEDNESS TO THE POINT OF TRANSPARENCY LIKE DISHES THAT HAVE BEEN WASHED IN CASCADE.....WAIT! THIS LOVE CANT BE MADE...IT JUST IS. A NO BRAINER LIKE MICHAEL JACKSON EASIN ON DOWN THE ROAD IN SEARCH OF THE WIZ....RICHARD PRYOR? I SEARCH FOR A LOVE THAT'S MUCH HIGER. A LOVE THATS COOL LIKE WATER YET IT BURNS LIKE FIRE.

IN THE WORDS OF THE SONGWRITER (SINGING)IT'S U I CRAVE .THE ONE (LOVE) FOR WHOM MY HEART IS ENSLAVED....YET FREE..FREE TO JUST BE. TRUST ME. IF (SINGING)A HEART IS A HOUSE FOR LOVE AND IF (SINGING) LOVE DONT COST A THING.U GET IN GOOD WITH THE FATHER U HOME FREE. HOME FREE LIKE A BIRD! DONT JUST LISTEN MAKE SURE U HEARD WHAT I'VE SPOKEN.....WORD!

WHO DO U TELL WHEN U LOVE SOMEONE... HOPIN THAT SOMEONE'S IN LOVE WITH U? I JUST ASKED U A QUESTION I ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER TO AND THE ANSWER WHO...KNOWS? I DO. SO AS I BRING THIS ODE TO A CLOSE...OPEN UP UR EYES EARS AND YA NOSE. CUZ THIS (LOVE) IS FOR THE SENSES, AND TO NOT KNOW WANT OR HAVE THIS (LOVE) WOULD BE SENSELESS SEE....LIKE CARDS ...THIS LOVE SHOULD BE DEALT! LIKE BRAILE...THIS LOVE SHOULD BE FELT LIKE STRAIGHT FROM A FATHERS BELT. AFTER THIS LOVE HITS U....U'LL BE PROUD TO SHOW THE WELP. CANT KEEP THIS LOVE TO MYSELF....ITS MEANT TO BE SHARED SEE TO EVERYONE UNDER THE SOUND OF MY VOICE ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO CAN BUT CHOOSE NOT TO HEAR ME.

ODE TO THE ONE (LOVE) THAT MAKES MY HEART BEAT LIKE THUNDER THUNDER THUNDERCATS HOOOOOO!THERES NO OTHER CAT NOOOO! THAT CAN FILL MY HEART MIND BODY AND SOUL.(KATT WILLIAMS VOICE) THIS CAT RIGHT HERE! THIS CAT RIGHT HERE IS THE ONE KING OF THE JUNGLE LION OF JUDAH THAT BREAKS EVERY CHAIN UNLIKE MUHAMMAD, CONFUCIOUS, OR BUDDAH.

ODE TO THE SON THAT SHINES BRIGHTER THAN THE ONE THAT RISES IN THE MORNING TO "SIGNIFY" UR DAY HAS BEGUN. ODE TO THE ONE, THE ONE THATS LIKE NO OTHER ONE. AFTER HIM THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER ONE THAT LOVED THE WORLD SO MUCH HE SENT HIMSELF DOWN AS HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE. IN THIS CASE....OBEDIENCE WAS THE SACRIFICE. ODE 2 THE 1 WHO ROSE 4 US ON THE TRICE DAY. ODE TO MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS THE CHRIST. GIVE HIM PRAISE!

I was conversing with a good friend the other day. We discussed the ups and downs of this industry and the tough decisions we make between giving up or pressing forward. We all get discouraged sometimes but here's what I say: "If you have a Dream...Chase it! When you catch it...Live it! While you Live it...Love it!" To all of my fellow actors,writers,producers,directors,dancers,poets, etc....Don't give up! the Bible says that your gift will make room for you. However..we should also make room for our gift. "Do What You Love. Love What You Do!"
