Don’t (Poem)

Don't worry, work through it. Don't fret, figure it out. Don't cry, clap back harder. Don't conform, challenge the status quo. Don't stir the proverbial manure, fertilize ideas with it! Don't sit there, weak and weary, become a warrior. Channel your energy; thrive. Soar. Make the impossible, possible. Don't delegate to others the glory that... Continue Reading →

Take a Chance

Draw a line, cross it, Take a step or two, Color inside and outside the lines. Let the wonder, wander free. Go beyond the horizon, Take the plunge and dive right in! Be bold. Be brave. Be fierce. Let the world see you shine. All that is loved is not lost. All that is forgiven,... Continue Reading →

Reasons

All you need is a reason to hope, To love, To dream, To be grateful for the calm after the storm. All you need is a reason to despair, To hate, To doubt, To believe you don't deserve happiness. All you need is a reason to trust, To see the good in others, To know... Continue Reading →

Shakily, steadily, emotionally gripping notes sour,... Continue Reading →

I Couldn’t Live Not Knowing

I couldn't live not knowing where my wallet was, where my cellphone went, or where I can find the instructions for the new vacuum cleaner. I couldn't live not knowing where the new video game purchase, or two,... Continue Reading →

Voices (A Poem)

Walking the halls of memory, I can hear them all clearly, The voices of those whom I lost, Jimminy Crickets, In my head, Pulling... Continue Reading →

I Was A Mom (Poem)

I was a mom once, A loving, nesting, pregnant mess of surreal possibilities, And my husband, a dad, that couldn't stop smiling. Glee poured out of his pores. We couldn't contain our happiness. For twelve weeks you brought us joy, The only kind a parent to be can feel. We were proud to call you... Continue Reading →

Life’s a Journey

There was a road less traveled, A winding, unkempt, delapidated trail With lots of promise and road blocks. It wouldn't be easy to travel it but it was worth the journey. I dared to dream, to hope and breathe Taking the road less traveled would challenge and excite me. However tough the going got, I... Continue Reading →
