Janus

Looking forward
Looking back
The last day of the year.

Looking forward
Looking back
Janus are you here?

Looking forward
Looking back
Time to make new plans.

Looking forward
Looking back
It's all in your hands.

Looking forward
Looking back
Time to start anew.

Looking forward
Looking back
A better year is up to you.

Baby New Year

Spirit of fertility
Symbol of rebirth
Lovely Pagan ritual
celebrated all over Earth.

 A tiny little baby in basket
back in the day.
Depicted  Dionysus God of Wine.

A Baby reborn
life starts anew
A brand new year is welcomed here.

Over the centuries
the basket disappeared
Over the centuries the meaning's not as clear

Little diapered baby running round til he gets old
then a little old man is there for us to behold
A new year reborn
Bells, whistles and horns
Welcome baby New Year
We're oh so glad you're here.

After the Holiday

Presents are opened.
Dishes are dirty.
All of the house guests left in a flurry.

No more carols to sing;
No more silver bells ring;
All the winter land walking has come to an end.

Now we think of tomorrow
as the new year approaches.
Now we think of tomorrow
and the promises it broaches.

How do we make next year better
for ourselves and for others?
What tomorrow brings,
We have yet to discover.

Resolutions and goals
our prosperity unfolds.
Can't wait to discover
what the new year will hold.

Even though it's a holiday

Even if you ask all the right questions 
and do all the right things 
you still get blindsided by 
other people's selfishness and stupidity.

Have Faith
Trust
Be kind
Be understanding
Get screwed and not in a fun way

Even though it's a holiday
adversity still comes your way

Have Faith
Trust
Be kind 
Be understanding
I'm rebuilding the walls I once took away



Even though it's a holiday
adversity still comes your way


Have Faith

Trust
Be kind 
Be understanding
good friends help take the pain away

Boxing Day

No it's not a prize fight match
There is no ref no belt no cash
There's Good King Wenceslas
and the feast of Stephen.
It's a holiday for those in service
A holiday that's well deserved
A chance for those who have a lot
To share with others what they've got.
A holiday for those in need
A holiday that's filled with glee
A holiday with a funny name
for boxing is just a silly game
But it's a holiday all the same.

Christmas Eve


Cinnamon and spice
Chocolate and peanut butter
Flavors both spicy and sweet
Gathering around the table to eat


Meaningful memories
Both old and new
Laughing and joking
A gathering of friends
Don't want this feeling to end


Hearts flutter
Voices mutter
Final anticipation begins


Happy wide bright eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
Scraps of colored paper
Decorate the floor

Laughter and love
Warm hugs
And late night goodbyes
Who could ask for more

Cookies, Candies, Kitchens too

I need a Snickerdoodle intervention
Or maybe I should stay out of the kitchen
Eggs, Cinnamon and Butter
It couldn't hurt to have another.

To smell of peanut butter is a holiday tradition
Unwrapping kisses & melting chocolate my mouth itchin'
With anticipation for something creamy, chocolaty and sweet
Peanut Blossoms and Buckeyes are they ready to eat?

Christmas cookies and candies
Holiday life is quite dandy
Although my waistline might not agree
My taste buds are extremely happy.

The Christmas Poem

I've never dreamed of a White Christmas.
I'm not fond of a Winter Wonderland.
If all my Christmases were white,
Both my troubles and myself would be out of sight.

I'd rather have ham than turkey.
Roasted chestnuts are not my cup of tea.
As for Jack Frost, he'd better not be nipping at me.

Christmas cards I love to write.
Stars will shine so very bright.
May your days be Merry and Bright
The thought fills me with delight.

Yuletide Carols are cool
And tiny tots on vacation from school
Listening late at night for sleigh bells
Hearing  all the old family tales.

Santa bringing goodies for
US good boys and girls
Friendship and happiness
felt across the world.

Say it once and then again
Many times and many ways
Merry Christmas is a time of Love
We should all praise.

Seeds of Love



Oh ho the Mistletoe
Kiss me there and I will know
the seeds of love hung up on string
holds delights to make my heart sing.

Twelfth Day Daze


Eleven pipers piping up a storm
And Twelve drummers drumming is not the norm
For a true love to give to someone dear
 So yes, I got the message loud and clear
Although you tried to kill my ears

In short my true love gave to me:
Twelve Drummers drumming which was just quite mean.
Eleven Pipers piping that was not a dream.
Ten Lords a leaping who liked to eat,
Nine Prima donnas on their feet,
Eight Maids a milking up at dawn,
A group of several swimming swans,
Six geese a laying here and there,
The quite unexpected Five Gold Rings,
Four Calling birds which left me without words,
Birds again with Three French hens,
Two Turtle Doves instead of gloves,
And the gift of which I had never heard
A partridge in a pear tree, ever so absurd.

You could have told me on your own
 As my darling we’re both very grown
Had you said, “I want to be alone.”
I would have left you on your own
 These last 12 days have been quite crazed
In several certainly, sarcastic ways
 Good bye my true love Good luck to you
For in future I am warning you
You’re going to find someone who
Gives gifts as generously as you do!

Milking, Dancing and Leaping Now

I figured if I closed the door
This wouldn't happen anymore
To give me gifts that I abhor
I'm not the one that you adore.

It's happened time and time again
I fear we're now upon day ten.
So many people surrounding me
My life's become a comedy.

Eight maids a milking as many cows,
There's the Nine ladies dancing now.
And if you were wondering where's the men
Lords a Leaping I've got ten.

Prima donnas on their feet
Lords a leaping like to eat
Maids a milking up at dawn
My true love this just can't go on!

13 Fouls

I thought your gift giving was through
I distinctly remember telling you
Feathered friends would not do
If my true love was truly you.

After five gold rings
I believed you were a king
showing me the finer things
that life has to bring

I did not know that up your sleeve
You continued to deceive.
Day six I slept upon my bed
dreaming of the day ahead
A smile of the day before
Within my sleeping state I wore

Who knew that I would soon awake
to find my place in such a terrible state
Six geese a laying here and there
Eggs and feathers everywhere

A bad dream it seemed to me
As I knew this could not be
I'm certain that we discussed this
My attitude towards feathered friends you could not miss
Back to bed  I went find some please
Hoping to wake and this would not exist.

Day Seven arrived to me at dawn
A group of several swimming swans
Now 13 fowls I find have I
Such a terrible sight I do spy
Eggs and feathers flying free
Wet birds all honking noisily

My true love how could this be
I thought this was over but now I see
Your gift giving mission his finally clear
It's all designed to bring me tears!

As Good as Gold

On the fifth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Five Gold Rings
Four calling birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtledoves
and a Partridge in a Pear tree.

I am in shock
I am in awe
I am in love with you
My love you are quite true

I will even forgive you
for continuing to bring
all those birds that sing
and other silly things

I never expected
Five Gold Rings
I never expected anything
The fine feathered menagerie
Made me believe you didn't care for me
Now I realize your creativity
An elaborate distraction's what this had to be

Why else would my true love give to me
all those creatures consistently
The game is over
Your plan succeeds
You are my true love
Yes indeed
No other tokens do I need

The silliness of feathered gifts
The plan to get me nice and miffed
All that you did
And now it's done
This game my love has been quite fun
As for other gifts
I don't need one
You've done more than enough and then some

Constant Calling

On the fourth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me
Four Calling birds, Three French Hens
Two Turtledoves and a
Partridge in a Pear Tree.

I forgave you once
I forgave you twice
It was my mistake to
forgive you thrice

I woke up to the morning rain
It's cold and wet and I must complain
Not just about the rain that falls
but about these birds and constant calls

Why oh Why do you torment me?
A silly bird up in a tree
Turtle doves and strange French Hens
Now birds that call over and over again.

FEATHERS FLY
is what said I
now my love I just might cry

No more BIRDS
That's it I quit
Tomorrow dear
please Get with it!!!!

Friday, December 9, 2011

Trois Poules Fran├žaises

On the third day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Three French hens, Two Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a pear tree.

Birds again?
What is with men;
The same gifts over and over again.

I've mentioned before
but I'll say it once more:
No need for the partridge up in a tree,
No need for turtledoves following me
Nor is there a need for Poules Francaises
today tomorrow or yesterday.

My true love charming you may be
But at gift giving let's face reality.
A personal shopper's not destined for thee.

Please listen and hear
Any more birds and I fear
the feathers will fly
between you and I!

Thursday, December 8, 2011

Turtle Doves from my Love

On the second day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Two turtle Doves and
A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Another tree oh deary me
My true love you can't possibly be
We discussed at length
The insanity of
Partridges up in a tree.

And now my love
You give me Two Turtle Doves?
How about a pair of gloves?

Stop sending me gifts
from the skies above.
Try to remember dear
You're my true love
And just say NO to Two Turtle Doves!

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Partridges and Pear Trees

On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

Now I don't know about you
but this is something
my true love just wouldn't do.

A bird is grand
but I don't understand
this partridge in a tree.

A Parakeet that goes tweet tweet
A Conjure  with some seeds to eat
A Parrot mimicking all you do
a Cockatiel to play with you

All fine gifts if you like birds.
This pear tree and partridge is just absurd.
My true love please don't give to me
A TV bird within a tree.

Christmas Collage

There's Silver Bells and Christmas trees
We deck the halls and Santa sees.
Rudolph's nose will light the way
to a manger but not  an inn.

There's Jingle Bells and dashing sleighs
A shining star to light the way
for three wandering kings.

Lords and maids and five gold rings;
Snowmen and a holy night
All these lines from songs we sing
Make our spirits feel quite right.

Your days may be sunny and bright
and in some cases they may even be white.
It's the best time of the year
So have a Holly, Jolly Christmas
And a delicious cup of cheer!

CHRISTMAS PEACE



Why is it that it takes a holiday

For people to come close together?
And why is it that there’s no other way
For us to show love for one another?

We should let the whole world know
That we all are one with each other;
And no matter what the world does now
We should change.

The world it should live in sweet harmony
And we should all give of ourselves;
And peace on earth, good will towards men
Should rule from this lifetime till the end.

Well we should let the Christmas Peace
Ring through the world each and every day
So we can all know we’re not alone. 
And if we let the Christmas peace
Ring through the world each and everyday
Then we could all feel that we’re at home. 


And the world could be a better place
For the entire human race
IF the Christmas Peace could just live on.

Life Experience to Go



Experience a life
Especially for you.

Remember you are special.

Make every day a celebration.

Keep in touch
with friends, family
fantasy and reality.

Be thankful for the clouds the stars
the wind, the rain,
The moments of joy and 
the bits of pain.

Remember,
We are all mad here. 
Believe in yourself.

An Invitation

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
You held me tight
I couldn't let go

A kiss, a hug, a fond embrace
Returned me to a different time and place

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
Thoughts for a moment
of how once was our time spent

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
Dinner, a walk,
a laugh and a talk

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
I kissed your cheek and said You're right
I held you close You held me tight

We both knew it was the end of the night.

Nothing

Nothing to say
I have no voice.

Nothing to say
but not by choice.

Nothing to say
how very strange.

Nothing to say
hope this will change.

Nothing to say
it's something new.

Nothing to say
What shall I do?

Bodies Entangled On The Floor

Bodies entangled on the floor
feel the pressure nothing more
Discussions of what could be
Feeling pressure incessantly
Bodies entangled on the floor.

How did we meet?
How long has it been?
Conversations for old friends.
Kisses exchanged.
Parts rearranged.
Our returning feelings never seem strange.

I let my question go unasked
The answer I think is better off masked.
Don't really need to know,
Thought that I wanted to though;
Still the question I let go.

Just enjoying this moment in time
Surrounded by arms that will never be mine.
Bodies entangled on the floor
filled with passion but nothing more.

After the Feast

Why does my belly hurt?
Oh yeah, the decadent dessert;
Or was it all the meat and mashed potatoes?
Heaven knows it couldn't have been the tomatoes,
stuffing or the gravy, No that couldn't be.
Candied yams and bits of ham glazed ever so sweetly?
Possibly.

Why does my belly ache?
Could it have been all the cake?
Curse this appetite I tried to sate
The taste testing because I couldn't wait.
Must have been All the food I ate 
in generous portions piled on my plate;
That I just ate and ate and ate.

Eyes bigger than my tummy
I couldn't help myself
It was all so yummy
Didn't eat it all as I'm no dummy
There's some left overs upon my shelf
Another delicious treat just for myself.

This time I will not pile the food upon my plate,
This time smaller portions I will take;
Because the end of the holiday is here
Over eating and a belly ache 
well they will just have to wait
Until the same time next year.

Give Thanks

Give Thanks
That's what the Pilgrims and Natives did
but not the myth
 that we all live.


Give Thanks
For Life and liberty,
for  love and laughter,
for triumph through disaster.


Give Thanks
Don't just think materially
think kindness and generosity
think friends and family.

Give Thanks
Buddha or Allah, Mother Earth or Brother Wind
 Krishna or Isis too
Pick all, one or any God or not it's up to you

Give Thanks
Everyday not just on Thanksgiving 
Thankful is the way 
We all should be living.

Anticipating

Anticipating
I hate all the waiting
It just can't come soon enough.

Savoring the moment
when all my time's spent
consuming delicious stuff.

Anticipating

I hate all the waiting
It just can't come soon enough.

Sweet and delicious
It's barely nutritious
What to eat first the decision is rough.


Anticipating
I hate all the waiting
It just can't come soon enough.

Passion's Plaything

Passion's plaything
must not be you
If you scare me
and I scare you.

What's a confident girl to do
Who needs aggressive
and that's not you?

Our mutual attraction's
Overdue
for an intimate
Rendezvous.

But if you scare me,
and I scare you
One on one won't happen
From us two.

You, Me and Jumping with Glee

You had me and you set me free
So excuse me If I don't jump with glee
When you tell me that you miss me.
You traveled the skies to reach me.
Told me my smile set you free.
You hoped that one day we could be
Sailing together across the sea.


Over the miles our relationship grew.
My hopes, heart and dreams I stored in you.
As months passed you asked what I wanted to do.
After my answer, I felt you withdrew.
Our original passion we couldn't renew.
When you said you were leaving I already knew.


It's year's later you're talking to me.
I ask myself, "How could this be?"
You see, you had me
and you set me free.
So excuse me
If I don't jump for glee
When you tell me that you miss me.

Chaotic Experiences

My life is a
never ending series 
of chaotic experiences.

One moment 
I have a general discontent
about everything.

The next
I'm a lover of life and beauty
anxiously awaiting to
create art and sing like no one's listening.

What joy a
never ending series
of chaotic experiences
can bring.

Lost Boys

I cannot bear to watch you fall
and yet I cannot stop you.

The safety net I represent
I've now begun to strongly resent.

Wendy has left the lost boys.

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Unmentioned

You didn't listen to what I had to say.
Told me I didn't need to ever think that way.
Called me a little girl and told me to go play.
All I could do was shake my head and walk away.
Can't help smiling as it all turned out this way.

Not gonna mention that you thought I was insane.
Not gonna mention how many times you called my name.
Not gonna mention every time you scream in vain.
That I told you so.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Words

You tell me the truth 
in so many lies.
My heart finds it hard
to just disguise
The feelings you stir inside.

Monday, November 14, 2011

I See You

You don't see me,
see you, see her.

You don't see me,
see you, see him.

You don't see me
but I see you.

Oh what you do
When you don't know
Someone sees you
and the whole show.

You don't see me
and I don't see you;
You seeing me
Seeing someone too.

Some say
It's the start of heaven.

Some say

Some say 
It's a day of praise.
And some
Just say
Happy Nigel Tufnel  Day!

Come and Go


My Depression Moods
Are things that come and go
like laughing.

Laugh more
Cry less.

When you cry
Make it your best

When you're through
Consider this

These things I know
Come and go
like laughter.

Magic and Misery
live forever.

Sooner or Later

Dreams may be wishes
deep down in your heart
But do they really come true?
I believe they do.


Sooner or Later
but not today,
In some tomorrow
Not far away.
Dreams will be
Reality,
Sooner or Later
For me.


Wish upon 
a shooting star;
All you desire
is not where you are,
Well...



Sooner or Later
but not today,
In some tomorrow
Not far away.

Wishes come true
for me
and for 
You.


Shooting Star 
or 
Wishing Well
Dream a Dream
And it sets sail
In some tomorrow;
Closer than you think,
Dreams come true
In a single blink.

The Dark Side of Hope

The Dark side of hope
It's name is disappointment.
The feeling which overcomes you
When hopes been promised
And does not follow through.

Full Moon (2-6-96)

Tonight there's a full moon
An absolutely magnificent full moon
that glows in the midst of ebony tendrils.

It's huge. 
A triumphant wheel
embraced in onyx nails.

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away
A Children's Chant
A game they play

Rain Rain Go Away
It may be Childish
But I'll play

Rain Rain Go AWAY
Children know
just what to say.

Wish

I wish I didn't have to go out today
That everyone would stay away
I'm warm inside my cozy room
The music's low
the night's in bloom
My heart's desires lay
just outside my door
But I'm content to stay
inside here on the floor.

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Require

The world is 
a strange and wondrous place
filled with lots of desires.

And all I require
Is my own space

To pass the time
how I desire.

Dia de los Muertos

Passed away
No longer with us
Gone to a better place

No matter what
We use instead
The meaning it cannot replace


Passed away
No longer with us
Gone to a better place

Today's the day to
remember those who've
passed into this state

Passed away
No longer with us
Gone to a better place

Remember lives of those we've loved
Who cared for us as best they could

Remember lives of those to young
To have left us in the first place

Remember lives not just today
but always for you see

The memory is the
life legacy.

Firenze Train (9/98)

Stalks standing stagnant 
in sun dried sand.
Silently stating
"So I stand."
Until time to replenish
Until time to begin
Stalks standing, standing still.

Dried husks devour dirt and
dust along the tracks.
Foreigners see yet
never look back.
Remembering only
The fields of joy
Not the sadness
Of stilted deploy.

Awaiting the new year
With laughter aplenty
Joyous revival 
Suns solace delight
Stalks standing
Sway subtly
with life.

Thinking Thoughts

Sitting,
Thinking thoughts out loud.
Talking to myself is how
I process daily life.

Recalling actions of the day
insecure questions
out loud I say:

Why am I doing this?
You just are.

Why have I never done this before?
You weren't ready.

Am I ready now?
Yes.

How do I know?
You just do.

What am I ready for?
Wait and see.

Sitting,
Thinking thoughts out loud.
Internal answers
make me proud.

Processing thoughts 
on daily life
as time goes by.

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Questions

Where am I going?
What am I doing?
What awaits me there?

I don't know the answer
but if I did,
I'm sure I would be scared.

Complicated Connection

Fantasy and Reality are not

mutually exclusive identities

of what you see or perceive to be

but conditions based upon

the simple duality

of our complicated connection

to what has to be.

Feeding Frenzy (7/24/02)

The man in the shades
sifting seeds to those who wait
watches as they alight around him
in frantic flight.

Will he bring us more delight?
We will follow where he leads
for he has the magic seeds.

Power play to lead them on
Knowing their appetites are strong.
Feels like a king
but this he knows
It's only because of the seeds he sows.

Open to the Possibilities

I've been told
I'm too nice.
I'm not real
I'm too strong
I'm too old
I'm too young

I've been told
I'm intimidating
I'm too smart
I thought you'd be seeing someone,
I'm too independent
If you were a girl...

Am I so much a mother figure,
teacher, sister, friend,buddy
That my femininity has disappeared completely?

Open to the possibilities
but often I find they don't seem open to me

Love is out there
Waiting patiently
Discovering it's a
painful, wonderful journey 
Here I go again
exploring
hoping to make a marvelous discovery

I cannot listen to 
what I've been told
Open to the possibilities
Love will see me.

Just One of Many

Much like Greta Garbo
You want to be Alone
You claim that you are happy
being on your own.
To be in love makes you uneasy
Physical fun's your priority.
Just one of many
is what you want from me.
Just one of many
so you can remain free.
Just one of many 
is what you want from me.

You've planned your life with the design
that in your heart no one is mine.
You mention often
I'm just one of many
You mention often no one is 
special to you.
You mention often
I'm just one of many.
One of many seems better
than just one of two.

Somehow your heart's been awakened
by a one of many brand  new.
Love has found You
Congratulations,
I'm happy for you;
But First Runner Up's not
what I wanted  to do.
Often you've mentioned
I'm just one of many.
Of women in this life
you have had plenty.
Often you've mentioned 
I'm just one of many
One of many it somehow
seems better it's true
than to discover that
I'm now just one of two.

You say you're not ready to just set me free.
You're falling for her but you're happy with me.
A couple is two it can never be three.
One of many you told me and 
that I could be.
One of many in this case
seems better to me.
I was here first  and
second place out of two
Is something I'm just
not willing to do.

Often you mentioned
I'm just one of many.
Plans for our future 
I didn't have any.
Lovers embracing all we could do.
This situation 
 I could pursue.
But somehow my darling 
one of two
just won't do.
One of many's much better
Than to be second place
in a situation where
I'm just one out of two.

Broken Bubble

A sound proof bubble of music and art.
A state of limbo for a broken heart.
You play guitar. We stare at stars.
The world for the moment is ours.

Routine visits form a slight bond.
Live in the moment don't envision beyond.
I mend my heart as you create arts
The world for the moment departs.

Outside reality begins to seep in.
Attachments are formed more than a friend.
The Bubble is broken. No words are spoken.
This world's final moments beckon.

Unconditional Utopia

Although I held you in my arms
My senses filled with all your charms
Although I held you in my arms
You were miles and miles away.

You whispered plans of things to come
Romantic nights and the rising sun
You whispered plans of things to come
Your broken promises made me numb

Unconditionally
That's how you think of me
Unconditionally
It doesn't say you love me
Unconditional
Is your Utopia
Unconditional
What are you hoping for?

Is unconditional just your way
of telling me that it's okay
For you to plan for brighter days
When you are never sure you'll stay.

Although I held you in my arms
You were still beyond my reach
You constantly reminded me
You were not mine to keep

Although I held you in my arms
My senses filled with all your charms
You constantly reminded me
You'd miles to go before you sleep.



Unconditionally
That's how you think of me
Unconditionally
It doesn't say you love me
Unconditional
Is your Utopia
Unconditional
What are you hoping for?

Thanks to You

Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the awkwardness of wondering what to say.
Thanks to You
I'd forgotten the loneliness at the end of the day.
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the look of disappointment.
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten questions like "How is your time spent?".
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten broken promises of calls to come.
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the monotony of "Where are you from?".
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the silliness of "How's my hair?".
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the wondering of what to wear.
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the strangeness of someone new.
Thanks to you
I'd forgotten the anxiety of "What will we do?".
And now, Unfortunately 
Thanks to you
I am remembering again what once was forgotten
And it is all
Thanks to you.

A Thought

She wrote the words,

"The world was wrong."

She sang the notes 

of nature's song.

All at once

a thought occurred 

"We belong,

It's not absurd."

Tomorrow

You may want to think of tomorrow

 and the promises it brings.

You may want to think of tomorrow 

and a million other things.

You may want to think of tomorrow 

and all the passion it may hold,

fields of dreams and stores of gold

But tomorrow's still unclear

Today is all that's here.

Life Despite Fear

It's not a life without fear
But a life despite fear
That keeps me in the game.

Why strive for more
if there's nothing
to get your feet on the floor?

Why reach higher
if there's nothing
to motivate your desire?

It's not a life without fear
But a life despite fear
That makes me master every challenge.

Why run faster 
if there's nothing
to make you move past disaster?

Why work harder
if there's nothing
to generate your going farther?

Many people say live a life without fear
But without fear,
How do we master each challenge?
How do we face new horizons?
How do we inspire?
How do we succeed? 

It's not a life without fear
But a life despite fear
That keeps us ahead of the game.

I live life despite fear.
Can you say the same?

ROOTS AND WINGS




I thought that wings would help me fly

Would help me sail the world

But all they did was teach me how to fall

Was teach me to walk and stay on earth.

I need roots with wild streaks to keep me in line.

I can’t keep up with winged streaks

I just keep falling behind.

I cannot fly before I walk.

I cannot walk without a thought

To that which I’m walking on.

In time my roots will let me grow wings.

In time I can do anything.

Ongoing Decisions V

Forced to make decisions again and again
When will this come to an end?
Time's not on my side.
Reality's rude.
This time life,please,
 have something positive ensue.

Ongoing Decisions IV

Still looking for something I once thought I'd find.
Something keeps making my heart hit the ground.
It isn't so easy how do I seek out again,
This something so elusive I can't comprehend.

Ongoing Decisions III

Too many questions;
Too many doubts,
Decisions I'd rather live without.
What do I do?
Inner self I ask you.
Tell me what do I do.

Ongoing Decisions II

Hiding out has come to an end.
Seeds of doubt are not my friend.
Constantly yearning,
This emotion is burning,
What does this path intend?

Monday, October 3, 2011

Ongoing Decisions I

Forced to make decisions again
Time's not on my side.
Life intrudes.
Reality's rude.
Another moment has died.

Thinking Queen


Alone with myself
Thinking many thoughts of you
Memories don’t fade.


Ask who you might be
The response I am the Queen.
How could you not know?

Intimidating Lady



Intimidating
You seem to see me this way

Your viewpoint is skewed.


Notice who I am
Intimidating’s not me
See the one who’s here.


I am a lady. 
A gentleman’s still a man.
Roles should be observed.

Pondering Situations


Pondering it all
Forced to make choices in life
How do I decide?


Situations change
I’m starting over again.
What do I do now?


Situations change
Why can’t they remain the same?
Here we go again.
