Not all is lost

Anger,Fear,Anxiety,RageThe crushing blow of a reality without you makes me weak,dull,mad,violent. I crawl into a ball gripping tightly to memories that still remain,Wishing I was in your arms, peacefully unaware of the lifetime I will endure without you. Who will build me up when others tear me down?Who will love me unconditionally, without hesitation?Who will […]

Good Enough (Poem)

I’m not the best painter,The best writer,The best advocate,But I am a resilient creator, An artist;A mindful visual and verbal communicator. I’m not the best nurturer,The best cook,The best housekeeper, Or the most patient teacher. I’m not a mother, nor a caregiver,But that doesn’t define my worth as a woman As a wife;As a contributing […]

What Makes a Mom?

I’m not a mom but I know how to change a diaper, how to bathe a newborn, how to soothe a colicky baby in the middle of the night, how to put together a crib, and how to proof a two story dwelling against rugrats. I’m not a mom but I have dropped off kids […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

The Music in Your Scars

Words, lovely melody, pouring from your broken heart, Rising and lowering in pitch, perfectly tuned, as you walk the halls of a world uncertain. Lightning crashes, and the beat turns tempestuous, violent, unnerving, Yet the song never wavers. The vocals add a touch of gravity to match the situation. Shakily, steadily, emotionally gripping notes sour, […]

Statistical Ups and Downs (A Poem)

The pendulum swings. One minute you are flying high, Successful, brilliant, ruefully optimistic And the next you are broken and beaten, Bruised, Prone on the ground watching others soar. The data of your life gets processed, Based on who you know, what you know and who you are a statistical map gets plotted. Thousands of […]

I Couldn’t Live Not Knowing

I couldn’t live not knowing where the keys are, Where all the cups and plates are stored. 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, […]

Voices (A Poem)

They tell me what to do and I listen, Taking turns to impart their wisdom. Calculating, methodical, completely anachronical, Pushing me to color outside the lines, To embrace anarchy and rebel. Walking the halls of memory, I can hear them all clearly, The voices of those whom I lost, Jimminy Crickets, In my head, Pulling […]
