Burning Desire

As I watched her florescent body dance in the beam light of Italia

Her summer smile radiating warmth through my heart

As her April eyes engage my soul, I remember god Glory.

I’m not a religious chap, but I converted the moment Catalina held my hands.

I didn’t know I was living in hell until she kissed me and found myself in her heaven.

My heart has become a canvas where my soul paints her in passion

My taste buds knows no other flavor beside Catalina.

Spanish guitars are drawn to the sway of her hips like magnet Creating rhythm no man can escape,

Love isn’t this everything we’ve dreamed of?  a Catalina.

She make us sin while we are in heaven,

At the sight of her our strengths lurched.

Ha! man goes to war hoping for a victory, while Love and I goes to war with a different courage

We hope to become martyrs and never to return.

Catalina the beautiful war we love to fight and hope to lose.

The Beautiful YOU!


The beautiful you is not the color of your skin

Or the texture of your hair.

The beautiful you is not  how tall or short you are

The beautiful you is not rather you’re skinny or overweight by society standards

The beautiful you is not the degrees you have obtain

Or the size of your bank accounts.

The beautiful you, has nothing to do with where you’re from, or religious beliefs

Nor the car you drive or the house you live in.

The beautiful you is not the price tag of what you wear

The beautiful you has nothing do with how eloquent you speak

The beautiful you  is your kindness and compassion toward others

The beautiful you is your tolerance and patience

The beautiful you is your ability to love and forgive

The beautiful you don’t rush to judge what you don’t understand

The beautiful you is always seeking to evolve into its higher self

That is the beautiful you and that is what the world needs

The beautiful you is what defines our Humanity

The Beautiful you,  Be that Always!
