Flagrant lack of maturation.Complete unwillingness to evolve.Unable to research or gather therapeutic information to increase in growth.Blatantly under-developed and overwhelmingly unequipped.The belief that sides must be picked and that battles be won.Refusal to branch from the trunk of one’s roots.Elongated development severed at the base.Discovering and dismantling patterns previously created.Tweaking at the treasure of personalContinue reading “Willingly Stuck”
Silenced in thoughts… an explosion of words uttered and mumbled, but filtered out first; Not bellowed to drums solely jotted on birch like a practicing man, kneeling outside of church.
To reconstruct a firm foundation, you must primarily deconstruct the original version of your unsteady self. Right??? Wrong!!! Following years of unsuccessfully trying to change, forgive or forget my past, and attempting to reposition my bricks, I realize now that I was simply adding cement or creating holes to the misaligned and wobbly structure. Recently,Continue reading “Radical Acceptance”
Worn body cemented to the curb with nothing attached but his homelessness and scraps. Only blurred visions remain that creep and strike his confusion. The place and the people once creating his home are now haunting shadows as he sits there alone. The flakiness of his hair and clear chips in his teeth tell anContinue reading “May I Sit Here With You?”
One day I will pack not a thing that I own. I will travel, venture, discover and roam. One day all my worries will be far behind. I will inhale to breathe in the beauty of life. One day I will worry for only myself. I will not be surrounded by all needing help. OneContinue reading “One Day”

the drips from the plastered shield above echoed loud into buckets like rainthe growls of the children roared to be silenced with crumbs from the grainsthe shallowness of the starving piggy was burning a holethe collection of bills and lack thereof bucks smelled like pennies that stank from the coins they had rolledtheir knees theyContinue reading “Empty Pockets”
Her skin but a carpet for others to stompHer heart but a slinky, a toy or a topHer soul is not seenHer cries go unheardHer feelings are said, but they don’t speak a word.Her skin it now boilsHer heart simply poundsHer soul it is shatteredHer cries are pronounced.Her feelings are hurt as she crumbles insideHerContinue reading “FINDING HERSELF”
I have no clue what else to do,To stop the pain I’m going through;The blanket slipped right from my hand,An outcome came I had not planned;Your golden heart it turned to black,The day you left your things to pack;My love it aches for your return,But bloody veins they boil and burn;I loved you then andContinue reading “Packed Up Heart”
You were burned by their sickness and not by themselves;Their words would not hurt if they had all their health.Throw away what they say, focus not on what’s done,And know that your love is not noticed by some.Their head full of tricks is the traitor that hides;It blackens the love and the kindness inside.
Adversity is not adverse if you do not stare it in the face. -LKS-
Do not combat battles not yours to fight for the victorious soldier is not one who engages necessarily but one who leaves the field unwounded. There is no need to disarm he who comes in peace.
That woman with 52 inches of hair and a body like a sculpture had everything meticulously figured out. Her inner and outer strength were as apparent as the old yellowish stains on her now pearly-white teeth. She had brilliantly overcome every mountainous obstacle life tossed in her way. Her boss-lady-like heels pounded the ground beneathContinue reading “52 Inches Away”
Dear diary,Don’t read my wordsThe crap I writeIs quite absurdMy trembling handsCan’t grasp the penCannot controlWho, what, where, whenThe ink I splashAre only thoughtsOf things I thinkI need to jotWhich is a blurJust turn the pageThe yellow shadesShow that I’ve agedMy i’s have dots above the t’sThe f’s exclaimed were not from me 😉
You lost you and left me, but have led me to find,That the person I’ve made does not make you mine; You are you without me, I am me without you, You finding yourself, does not mean that I lose; I will still be around when your you becomes found, We may be apart, butContinue reading “Flying Free”
no child a burden, no parent so good. would have given it all, but…we did what we could. no money or fortune, no mansion or luck. we have given it all, and…had only a buck.
Driving by in the road with emotions afloatDown the path up ahead Don’t know which way to go. Tucked well past the sign behind unpatched potholesThree horses of shadesThat aligned the meadow. Near enough to be loved, but too far to be touchedNestled one on the otherNeighbored close like a crutch. Their beauty a sceneContinue reading “Remember That Ride”
