Poetry: Fairy Tails

(December 2012) I’ve built for myself a fairytale. One I had hoped would end well. But as the issues start to swell, I sit and watch as it all fails. Not sure what to think; I cannot tell. Should I sit and weep in front of a wishing well? Lessons learned within this hard shell….

Poetry: Anticipation

(April 2013) Setting your hopes high just to watch them get dashed across the midnight sky like weakly shinning stars for all to see. Such a waste of energy and time. Such a waste of mental space. I’m not ready to go through this again. But maybe that’s just what I need. To be taken unaware by…

Poetry: War

Poetry: 2,016 Changes & Counting

What once was, will ever be, At least, that is all we wish to ever see. But we cannot only forever stay, And if we do, the price we pay On missing out on what could be And passing up on what we could see. For out there is a world that awaits us, And,…

Poetry: That Place

I’d like to end the year on a good note and put some pep in your step for the year to come! (2008) I’m looking for a place Where my joy is full And my peace is steady My hope is strong And my faith is secure in your arms. Can you take me there? A place…

Poetry: We Rise

November 16, 2016 Women of light Women of love Women of sight Women from above Rise up and take your rightful place. Women of truth Women of grace Women of worth Women for change Rise up and claim your rightful place. Women of power Women of class Women of elegance And women with sass Rise…
