Tina Arradondo - ALL ALONG

Some people just have it.
What's it?
The Gift.
The gift that allows one to open up their hearts, pour their blood on the world, and live to tell it. You have to be in tune with the Truth, in order to be that free...

I recently met a Woman who has that gift. Tina Arradondo is her name, and she's quite the wordsmith, if you ask me. I haven't written poetry on a regular basis for a while now, so when I see it coming from others, it sparks me to jump back in with both feet...reading the following I made a quantum leap forward...Tina's writing, "ALL ALONG", is straight outta 120, the degree that came to mind is "I came to the Wilderness of North America by myself." Tina isn't afraid to ask herself those questions that most people run from when they're alone. The questions that you Know the answer to, but
sometimes wish you didn't. It always helps though when someone else comes to the same conclusions that you did, let's you Know that you're not All Alone...

ALL ALONG Written by Tina Arradondo

What's on the other side sometimes I know is not for me,
I can see through some mountains so clear and perfectly...

Is it my fault that I have wisdom that others may see as strange?
I feel things that others don't and so I claim it cause It can't change.

Is your death predetermined at the time you were conceived?
Or do you believe you can make choices that can change what's
meant to be?

God said "BE" and there I was, put on this path so am I the judge
of how I view what's in my path whether it's money, sex, lies or

The path I'm on is full of twists and turns and mountains I can't
climb. When I say can't, I do mean CAN'T. It doesn't matter
if I tried.

My mind is perfect. The world is flawed. I was created by Divine
Law. It's logical that I'd feel radical if to me the 'norm ain't normal.

I feel, "whats being bought should've never been sold", You feel, "what's
being sold should've never been bought". So what's real?

I feel, "Whats being taught should've never been told" and you feel
"what's being told should've never been taught", so what's real?

To act without thought, then react when the consequences unfold
is insanity to me

We're looking to the future to answer questions that have been
answered in the, "What causes pollution?" Gas! and a
mask ain't the solution.

Arguing over problems that were never meant to be,
the evolution of man, Damn, when will Truth just evolve.

To think rational is beautiful. War is complicated
Peace is simple. And simply put...The ones that know it
don't control it but the ones in control, DO know. So now what?

If the beginning and the ending were already written then is there
room for shifting? Or are we just drifting?????

We have choices to make, voices to take back.
We've failed in fiction, but will prevail in facts.

God is Real, Religion is false. Lies are always easily found in
this life but the truth?.... So easily lost.

We've been on pause for too long. Push play or just stop re-
winding the song. Stop compromising with wrong when you knew right
all along.

It's a classic case and such a drastic mistake to trade a coal mine
for plastic because it's easier to lift and sift...WAIT!! I'll
take the coal with the dirt, I'll sift til it hurts.

I'll take that boulder, carry it through life on my shoulders if in the
end I deliver a diamond to the Giver of Life as my gift.. Beauty is in the eye
of the beholder.
Or is it???

I see beauty in love, while others see beauty in hate. So the definition
of beauty is up for debate.

The smoke in your eyesight creates the illusion of grey. The world
is indeed black and white. My mind spins and truth wins but it's
not in the fight.

The battles not really between wrong or right. It's about how you
viewed things on the path you were on. It's about YOU and what
you thought of it all, all along.

  1. Woooooooooooooooow...That was some beautiful scribing. I'll definitely keep a watch out for her..Also thanks for adding on to the "meditiation" blog. I'm gonna get back into salat myself.We have to make a conscious effort to discipline the faculties of the mind that operate involuntarily as well.That is atonement (attunement).Peace.

  2. On the heels of Andy Dalton's epic stinker against the Browns, the Bengals aren't giving up on their embattled franchise quarterback.

    Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson on Friday accepted plenty of blame for a performance that saw Dalton tie a career low in completions (10) and suffer his worst outing in terms of completion percentage (30.3) and passer rating (2.0).

    "I'm joined at the hip with him. I understand that's the way it goes," said Jackson, per's Coley Harvey. "I have not run from that. As he gets killed, I get killed. That's the way it goes. That's part of the business.

    "But I don't want us to think we're going to cheap sale jerseys have an issue with Andy. We're not. We're going to coach Andy. We're going to help Andy get to where he needs to wholesale jerseys shop be. That's my job. We're going to coach him, continue to get him better, NFL Jerseys continue to grow."

    Jackson has guided a laundry list of NFL Nike Roshe Run quarterbacks, but he Nike Free Run didn't need to dig deep to find the best example of a passer bouncing back from a disastrous start.

    "The example's him," said Jackson, pointing to Dalton's solid outings in Week 8 and Week 9 after a messy showing in Cincy's 27-0 loss to the Colts in Week 7.

    We don't doubt that Dalton will correct some of the flaws that NFL Jerseys Store plagued him against the Browns, but Bengals new nike nfl jerseys fans can't be blamed for feeling a wave of unease over the play of their franchise quarterback.

    Instead of making the leap some Nike Air Max 90 predicted under Jackson, it's more of the same from a signal-caller known for turning out his ugliest handiwork when the spotlight burns brightest.
