LAID ON LAUGHED AT

Steppingstone350

This is my disclaimer before I write this post: For the record, I have never had any kind of sexual or compromising exchange for gain; that’s not what this is about

Dear Reader,
As you should know by now, I like to stay out of politics but there are times when your voice is the voice that needs to be heard and today, I say, if you’re not appalled at the treatment of Judge Kavanaugh and this lynching process of “Guilt before innocence”, there’s something wrong!

I am a business woman, I am a singer/songwriter, and I AM a survivor of abuse. Until this day, I have never mentioned it, much less, elaborate, seek fame, pity, vengeance, or, become part of any movement so as to benefit someone else’s agenda: No one cares about anyone else’s plight. Each one is busy seeking self-preservation at any cost! 

As a ‘victim’ and ‘survivor’ of mistreatment, I am livid that some of our leaders in government are so desperate to kill the American Independence that they have defecated on those who have truly experienced abuse – EVERYONE  SHOULD BE RAISING THEIR HANDS AND VOICES IN ABSOLUTE DEFIANCE & DISGUST! SHAME on anyone that allows themselves to be used and abused by this anti-American rhetoric!

UNALIENABLE RIGHTS: The U.S. Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

I am a Christian Constitutionalist and I believe that everyone has the right to be free to choose how they want to live their life so long as it does not require a rewriting of our foundational principles.  We have a Constitution that is easily understood and guarantees every law abiding citizen the absolute, inviolable rights to their own pursuit of happiness.

PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE: The presumption of innocence is the principle that one is considered innocent unless proven guilty. The total disregard of this process will destroy the foundation that your unshackled feet are standing on!

YOU CHOOSE WHAT DEFINES YOU
I am in no way condoning anyone violating another in any way, but what I am saying is that you become a victim over and over by allowing others to use your sufferings as a stepping stone for their ascension. Be a voice for victims, but remember, the heart in which you do something not only determines its effectiveness, but its justification.

A FINAL NOTE: I pray that when all this blows over, any false or misleading accusations from anyone (Senator or civilian), is handled in the criminal courts. Calling this lynching a travesty is far too glossy, and frankly, I do not want to invest anymore energy by elaborating on this evil.

Until next time,
Aren’t you grateful that no one’s probing in your closet?!

I’M STILL THE ONE

I wrote a song the other night titled, “I’M STILL THE ONE”.  It’s a beautiful song and one of the few written on piano. It’s about one mate watching the other drift away and knowing that there’s nothing they can do about it; what a lonely feeling and what a sad truth.

When the flesh is weak and the desire strong, it isn’t hard to make the wrong seem right, especially when one surrounds oneself with worldy people. Here’s a scripture that rings so true:

“Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 1 Cor 15:33

Be careful who you confide in because sometimes the very ones you’re trusting, are the ones who would kill to have what you have.

Until next time,
It’s only too late when it’s too late…
Love, DestinyB

THE RIGHT THING

 

The right thing is the hardest thing, sometimes. When I wrote this song I was going through a very painful situation; one that I thought I could not survive, but I did, and time’s passing made most of the memories of no effect, and the ones that still knock on my door, only hurt a little, and only when I let them.

Time is a beautiful healer but if whatever you’re going through seems too much to bear and too heavy a load, give it to JESUS and HE will trade you HIS beauty for your ashes, and your pain for HIS enduring strength.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light
Matthew 11:28–30

Dear lovely, you’re not alone and I swear it will get easier.
Love DestinyB 😚

WHAT IS IT ABOUT DUSK?

The sun is preparing to slumber, horses are fed, the birds are getting ready to roost, & I’m missing my grandpa; he loved dusk, and if you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that I don’t.  I wrote a song titled, “I HATE THE ENDING”, and I do; the end of a book, the end of a movie, the end of the day, the end of a relationship, etc.,

I HATE THE ENDING ©2016

I HATE THE ENDING SO I’LL JUST SAY ‘SEE YOU LATER’
I HATE TO GET TO THE END SO I’LL JUST PRETEND
I HATE THE ENDING SO I’LL JUST SAY SEE YOU LATER THEN I’LL WALK AWAY

I HATE A LONG GOODBYE & THE LOOK I’M GONNA SEE IN YOUR EYE
YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE TO GO SO PLEASE DON’T CRY
I HATE THE ENDING SO I’LL JUST SAY SEE YOU LATER THEN I’LL WALK AWAY

Slipping away quietly is something that I’m pretty good at but truth is, endings are a necessary occurrence that without, we cannot progress. Seasons change, people change, circumstances change, and chapters must end so that new ones can begin.

Cherish the moments while you have them but don’t be afraid to close doors; some no longer serve your best interests. Selah!

Love, DestinyB

CHASING CARS

Every now & then I get asked if there’s a song that I wish I wrote and truth is, I don’t listen to other music very often but when I hear “CHASING CARS”,  it hits me like a ton of bricks. As a songwriter, it is important to me that people understand the meaning of my songs, so most of the time if I feel that something needs clarification, I will offer it, but, sometimes, as is the case with this song, it is best to leave the interpretation to the hearer; I’m sure the things I feel and think about when I hear it are unique to me   and I am very grateful it was written.

Selah, DestinyB

SOMETIMES ALONE

willingtowalkalone-425

Today, my thoughts are on moving forward. As I pondered where we’re going and who will be joining us in this amazing time of life, I also thought about the many difficult decisions I personally have had to make in order to keep my faith & dreams alive.

When GOD speaks to you about your life and the promises HE has for you, I can promise you that every demon from hell will be right there with you to steal your belief. Remember, faith’s victory walk is not an easy one but its rewards are immeasurable

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4

If you want to receive all that GOD has for you, you have NO room for doubt or disbelief, nor should you ever allow it near you; even if it means that you walk alone–AND, my beautiful friend, sometimes alone is where you need to be.

Love DestinyB

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD

People are awesome! Even if you’re not from California, I’m sure by now you’ve heard or have seen how horrible we’re suffering from fire after fire!  Dwelling in this misery would be easy, but, right now,  I am inspired and in awe at how my fellow brothers & sisters of the earth have stepped up in ways that I cannot express. I could never find enough words to say, “THANK YOU” to all those who have tirelessly dedicated the last several days to fighting fires, rescuing innocent animals, helping stranded people, donating, delivering, praying, calling, organizing, etc, etc.,

 😘 PEOPLE OF THE WORLD,
YOU ROCK!  😘 

Here’s a poem I wrote just for YOU, & YOU, & YOU, & YOU, & YOU, & YOU…

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD © 🙌
People of the world are all so unique
can’t we just learn to turn the other cheek?
Do what you can in your own time & space
and this will do more than the words that you waste

Posted in A SONGWRITER'S THOUGHTS, WHAT I'M WORKING ON

ONE MORE TIME

UPDATE: 12-24-17. Came back to finish and realized this poem is complete..

Good morning, Lovelies,
It is cold where I’m at right now, but, I have a mate to hug, a dog to love, horses waiting to see me, and music to write – So, this morning, my heart turns to those who have lost a loved one. You’re not alone…

This is a #poem that I’m working on titled, “ONE MORE TIME”  © .

It’s cold right now & you’re not here / What gave me comfort has turned to fear / I’ll pray like you told me & ask for Grace / I’ll pray, but if only, I could see your face / One more time ..
✍

I’ll post the rest of it when I finish.
Hugs, DestinyB

I THINK I

“I THINK I” is the title to a song that I recently wrote. The song is a little jazzy, which reminds me of my father: An amazing jazz guitarist and singer who could croon his way into any arena with his voice and charisma.

Though I didn’t write the song for or about my father, it pretty much could sum up how I would have felt if he would have let me in.”
