Each Their Own Gift

By |April 12th, 2013|

I watched them in awe

the roles they play

making a difference in our lives,

day by day

 

Each playing a part

Their own puzzle piece

Without them things wouldn’t run as smoothly,

not in the least

 

But what they are doing

They’re just doing their due

without a single clue

to what it is they do

 

They play a special part

they just didn’t know

that without their […]

Depressed

By |April 21st, 2012|

Down

Depressed

Down in the dumps

 

Doubtful

Distressed

Throat full of lumps

 

Don’t know what to do

Where to go from here

Down

Depressed

Filled with despair

 

Need a bit of cheering up

Because I’m so weary

Feeling a bit under the weather

It’s all so dreary

 

Down, depressed, distressed, drained

These digging emotions, drive me insane

 

Need some sunshine

To shine through the rain

Need to get away

By boat, plane or train

 

Down, depressed, […]

Inside of Me

By |March 6th, 2012|

They told me you were sick

Some parts of you not well

They said it might be best to take you

Before my life became hell

 

But what they didn’t know

What my outer layer would not show

Is how I felt you grow

And the way you made me glow

 

In the Ultrasound, I saw you

I saw your perfect frame

You were already […]

Living on Paper

By |March 1st, 2012|

Living life in theory, visualizing who I want to be,

and writing about her, that’s easy

 

Living life in real-time

That’s the hard part.

Sometimes I don’t know where to start

 

On paper, I feel strength and confidence

I know what life’s about

I want that for real so badly

I wanna scream and shout

 

Make my paper scribbles and visualizations

more real to me

Make […]

Out of Sight

By |February 25th, 2012|

I guess when you don’t see me, when I am out of sight

You think that everything with me is all right

 

I’m just a passing thought sometimes

You may think of day or night

And then you say a little prayer for my current plight

 

Do you say to yourself

“She doesn’t need me at all,

so why bother her with […]

Bloodshot Eyes

By |February 25th, 2012|

I look in the mirror

I see bloodshot eyes

On account of sleepless nights

and intermediate cries

To this season I’d like to say my goodbyes

 

In the Bible it says, for everything there is a season

And I have to believe this is all for a reason

 

But right now all I want to do is runaway

Find myself in a brighter […]

I Yearn

By |February 22nd, 2012|

I yearn to hear a rooster crow the morning

I yearn to see the sun rise above the horizon

I yearn to see the wind sway in the trees

Such sensational blessings are these

 

I yearn to feel soft grass between my toes

I yearn for the scent of flowery aroma to captivate my nose

I yearn to hear the birds […]

A Mother’s Lies

By |January 29th, 2012|

(Casey Anthony)

 

She drinks champagne

To celebrate her hard-earned freedom

Is it freedom she deserves?

Not in my opinion

She deceived and deceived

Till her objective she achieved

She’s free, completely free or so she believes

But what about Caylee?

Will there be any justice for Caylee?

Is this the end of her story?

And the beginning of her mother’s glory?

I have to believe justice will be […]

Damsel in Distress

By |January 4th, 2012|

I’ve tried to be your Knight in Shining Armor

I’ve tried to comfort you and take away your fears

 

I’ve tried to warn you and give you good advice

I’ve tried to always be there for you, never think twice

 

I’ve listened to you talk about how much you’re depressed

I’ve tried to be your hero, save the Damsel in […]

The Waiting Period

By |February 27th, 2010|

God, I hate this

The waiting period

I’m stuck in the middle of nowhere

But I’m not nowhere

I’m somewhere, I’m here

Here is where

I wait and stare

Up in the clouds

With vivid dreams

And while I wait my mind screams

“Patience” he gently whispers to me

“The Great Adventure” is coming you’ll see

But I hate it

This waiting time

I want what’s coming to me

I […]
