The Ultimate Sacrifice (2-21-2011)

I remember the number of beats in my heart during that moment when I first laid eyes on you, for it was when my prior life ended and my new life began.  I compare that segment in time to a gentle ocean tide frequenting coastal line during the first break of light at the beginning of a new day, for every morning I awaken with you by my side is an opportunity to experience yet another.

Your presence touched the center of my being with what I yearned for and believed could be, and it has affected my spirit corrupting doubt, forcing me to embrace love without the burden of limitation.  Fear became a casualty as a result of the warmth generated from intense commitment, and whenever I reach for you I am consumed completely by that which you give openly and freely.

What you unlocked in me is indescribable, yet I grasp for perfect words to convey to you exactly what is inside of my heart, stumbling on the exact and meaningful during our confessionary interludes.  Your gaze expands all that is inside of me often leaving me lost within the purpose of what we have found, and beneath your sun and your moon I become the brightest star in your constellation.

Should there ever come a time when you have a need for part of me then I’ll gladly sacrifice half of my heart beats so that I will never have to know how life would be without you.

For love I’ll make The Ultimate Sacrifice

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
