“She sets me free, free to be me,
she’s encouraging,
she’s supporting,
she’s always what I need.
She’s the one reminder,
that I can do anything.
And I know she feels the same from me.

In her eyes, I see the love for me,
In her voice, I hear her soul call to me,
In her touch, I feel our meant to be.
Never felt this much belonging.

She’s got me out on the floor,
And I’m dancing.
We move in a rhythm,
And it’s uplifting.
It’s such a rush,
Like spinning around,
Not getting dizzy.

She sets me free, free to be me,
she’s encouraging,
she’s supporting,
she’s always what I need.
She’s the one reminder,
that I can do anything.
And I know she feels the same from me.

In her eyes, I see the love for me,
In her voice, I hear her soul call to me,
In her touch, I feel our meant to be.
Never felt this much belonging.

She’s the one,
She’s the only possibility.
Loving what I see,
When she looks at me.
We are meant to be.
She’s my every want,
My every need,
My every desire.
I am just a man on……..fire.

“Being in the military to put into perspective with what leadership is, or as defined by my personal experience, you learn to lead without title or position, and other’s follow your example. Not everyone who had the title or position deserved it, nor could they lead effectively because of what it is to be an actual leader. A leader leads by affluence and acceptance. Even when their leadership isn’t clear, and they have to seem to be the bad guy, most know that there has to be a reason for the tough tasks or seemingly impossible demands. And they follow, out of respect, not because of the title or position, but simply because of who they are known to be. I appreciate everyone that ever followed my direction, those of whom I had the privilege to lead, they followed, and hopefully they took a piece of me and added it to themselves. That’s what it is to lead, the example of who to be.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

“It seems, as it is, obvious, but look again and you will find the opposite in competition vs. motivation.

Some people think to thrive, one needs uplifting support, the motivation to always be positive, an undying level of support and encouragement.

Really? Do we need that to succeed, do we need or even require that coddeling?

In my humblest outspoken opinion, I believe that competition breeds innovation, and that’s the truest form of motivation.

To be in competition with no one is not competing, to motivate someone without the use of competition will only lead to mediocre results more often than not.

All the greatest victories or results came from competitions, the race to achieve greatness, or excell against someone or something else.

So if you are of the mind that thinks competition breeds losers more often than winners, you are absolutely right, why would want to have the worst, when you can have the best?

Life is a competition, yes, you may not win in all the area’s of life, but the strive to do so, is the motivation. Not the coddled support of a fictitous web that in reality, are just all lies. Go for what’s real, what’s tangible, get in the game of life, go for the win.”

“Words can be used as weapons, or used to make one grow. Words can give life meaning and express what it is you wish to show. Some say words are worthless and actions speak louder, but to me, words are always perfect, and the lies they hide behind are the actions shown. For actions is words put into motion, we think in words, then do whatever deeds we please. So it is not words that are worthless, it’s the people misusing and abusing them to a selfish means. Words were made to communicate emotions not easily conveyed or portrayed. They are the captured essence to ignite our lives.”

by Ryan L. Rinehart

“To ensure that you can be happy with life, one must embrace all of the total sum of it. The good, the bad, the happy, the sad, but most of all the love. Sometimes people just won’t embrace the love because they themselves feel or think themselves unworthy. That’s not a heart issue that’s a self image and mind issue. For love goes beyond fears and insecurities, it makes the daring dare, and doesn’t know how to quit. Loving some one can indeed be crazy if they are unsure of deserving such love and devotion. Give it time, for it can climb any mountain and cross any ocean, or when simply needed, it can stay put.”
“Clarity of Hart” by Ryan L. Rinehart

“Some people are not able to manifest their desires in such a way that they actual articulate and achieve them. I too, was once this way, believing that I had poured everything and did anything to have what I wished for. Like most, my efforts were lost in translation, a dialect deranged from all understanding. Until by chance, alignment came, and the cosmos spoke of purpose, like meteorites from the skies hitting the earth, my world rattled, and there she was. An angel born of trials and tribulations of her own bearing, a survivor, and her entire being beckoned my own. We manifested each other’s desires perfectly, even surpassing them to extreme fulfilment all the while in wonderment. Love was something I thought I had experience with, and now I am overjoyed, knowing all that came before, was just a shell, not close to what this is. Now my articulation is achieving my desires portrayed in touch, in thoughts, in deeds, in kiss, and in love.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

“She’s that silent whisper inside an echo, ricocheting throughout my heartbeats, as if like my blood she’s there to heal me and make me stronger with her love. Like when you breathe, you don’t have to put thought to it, she is always there on my mind, in my thoughts, she fills me up completely.” “The Last Affair of Hart” by Ryan L. Rinehart

“She Sees”

I think she sees,
That I am a man,
But a different breed.
One who trusts,
Never breaks promises,
She sees all of me.

Couldn’t spell it out
But it’s in every detail,
What I hold for her,
What she holds for me.
Nothing in this world
Could ever derail,
What we have,
What our love entails.

I think she sees,
The soul inside of me,
And that sets her free.
Never afraid to say such things,
How she feels
Away from me,
Or right beside me.
A love,
That was meant to be.

I think she sees,
What it is,
And how she means to me,
Becoming my lifes philosophy.
Cause, I am a different breed,
Being her man,
It’s all there’s left,
For me.

Couldn’t spell it out
But it’s in every detail,
What I hold for her,
What she holds for me.
Nothing in this world
Could ever derail,
What we have,
What our love entails.

“Crooked Tooth”

“When it comes down to,
That one crooked tooth,
In a smile thats just got you hooked.
What do you do?
Tell me, what do you do?
When nothing looks as good
As the way they look at you.
What do you do?
Tell me, what do you do?

How ’bout you
Just smile somewhere else
Cause you’ve turn these green eyes blue.
I’ve gotta do whatever it takes,
To get over you,
And that one crooked tooth.

You had amazed me,
Drove me crazy.
Now at times
I feel like you played me.
I can still see you smile
Still hear how you called me baby.
And how it all comes down to
That one crooked tooth.
I need a dentist,
See if I can fix this.

Cause,

When it comes down to,
That one crooked tooth,
In a smile thats just got you hooked.
What do you do?
Tell me, what do you do?
When nothing looks as good
As the way they look at you.
What do you do?
Tell me, what do you do?

You’ve got that smile,
That always drives me wild,
And that one crooked tooth
Gets me every time
I look at you.
What am I gonna do?
Tell me, what do you do?

You know,
When it comes down to,
That one crooked tooth,
In a smile thats just got you hooked.
What do you do?
Tell me, what do you do?
When nothing looks as good
As the way they look at you.
What do you do?
Tell me, what do you do?

Baby, don’t you know,
That I miss you,
And that one crooked tooth.
You and your crooked tooth.

“Moments and Memories”

I am not sleeping
Cause I am always dreamin
About what you and I could have been
We were lovers
You were my best friend
Now we’re strangers
I still wonder why did it hafta end

It’s all moments
And memories
Holdin onto you
You holdin onto me
All in these places we used to love
Now it’s haunting me

You’re there in my evenings
Girl, I wish you knew
How you get to me
Lying in bed
Staring at the ceiling
Thinking about you
Caught up in my feelings

It’s all moments
And memories
Holdin onto you
You holdin onto me
All in these places we used to love
Now it’s haunting me

I am not sleeping
Cause I am always dreamin
Caught up in my feelings
Thinking about you
How you used to hold onto me
Girl, don’t you know
Don’t you know
How it’s haunting me
All these moments and memories
