Nurture

Such sorrow do I feel For those who never knew My heart aches for the lost, unloved And pain that they’ve been through I’ve tasted life when sour I’ve sampled it when sweet True happiness, I tell you Is who we love and meet Let not the things around you Cloud judgment, nor your sight … More Nurture

What I’d Give

So bittersweet, this day to me Each year it lies in wait The pain so strong, the memories: glee I’m struck by love and hate The loss of those we hold most dear Turns to tragedy, life’s play And while you feel the hurt all year We all have that one day A time when … More What I’d Give

Wanderlust

Wanderlust, traveler, perhaps even gypsy So many labels they’ve applied, but in reality Living life is all she wants, it’s really that simple Her spirit shines through both her smile, and her cute cheek dimple Life is meant for living, yes, a thing she truly gets Singing, dancing, spinning round, she loves without regrets Always … More Wanderlust

Love & Loss

Unforgiving, relentless, cruel More sour than lemon or lime Yielded by Life, this emotionless tool Deals pain that’s inevitable: Time No matter the love or the laughter it sees It strikes without warning or sign Its flame turns to smolder the most peaceful of trees All beginnings, it ends by design Why, all too often, … More Love & Loss

My Life

The sand, the dirt, the grass, the trees The sticks, the stones, the light, the breeze The things this world has made for me Have warmed my heart and set me free I look at the stars as I rest on my knee They twinkle and spark, this light that I see I gaze at … More My Life

Keep the Prayers

Keep the prayers, I request, to your own faithful self. They’re distant to me, meant for somebody else. I was close to your God, admittedly you see, until he ripped me apart; abandoning me. I’m told “There’s always a reason”. Yeah, well I disagree. No purpose is found in response to my plea. His “love” … More Keep the Prayers

Never Satisfied

My biggest fear isn’t what I thought it’d be It’s not the day of final rest, not the day I cease to be It’s that my time alive isn’t spent the way it needs to be That all I did was sit back and react to what’s been done to me That’s not the path … More Never Satisfied

Forward

It’s often that i see this If truth were to be told Despite the goal: inspire It turns warmth to bitter cold If ever you are struggling If ever you are down Remember they don’t matter And that words can’t bring you down For often will you hear, when You are looking far ahead That … More Forward

The Gentleman

Chivalrys dead! Or so it is said On this, I ponder quite long It’s really no chore Kindly holding your door Yet you glare, like something is wrong  It’s fine! Some will sneer I’ll get it! They’ll jeer Independent, a woman am I Your help? I’ve no need These mouths, he shall feed Career driven, … More The Gentleman

Ms. Scribbler

Hello my friend! Please lend an ear A tale have I For you to hear Once upon A timely time A maiden lived Who loved to rhyme She’d sit outside As sun shined bright Observe the world And write and write Her rhymes were filled With love and fear And all the things From there … More Ms. Scribbler

Vengeance 

Your sticks and your stones May break all my bones  But these acts, I swear you’ll regret For time heals us all It builds a stone wall And this, we shall not forget You came here to slay  To take mine away All that, which we hold close and dear Yet here, I still stand … More Vengeance 

Dear Mom

Dear Mom I want you to know, Mom I’ll never forget  The pain and the hurt Nary thought of regret For all you could do And with all you could give You gave to us three In hope that we’d live The life that we dreamed  Where good turns to great When happiness soars And … More Dear Mom

Go…

My head’s above the water That drowning feeling, gone A year point five has passed The dark before the dawn I know its up to me now, To act, to make her proud No longer shall I question Why the pain was ere allowed Instead my eyes shall focus On this path that’s clear ahead … More Go…

For Her

Tonight it hurts  The pain it sears I’m all alone I’m dripping tears I miss her so My empty grasp Tries reaching out  Yet nothing lasts I hate the hurt  With everything Im here, now God I’m listening  Speak up, it’s time To make your play This pain I want  To go away If you’re … More For Her

Reflections of Sadness, Elation, Hope & Regret – Happy Birthday, Mom: I Miss You Terribly

In the midst of the typical holiday cheer and excitement, at a time when everyone surrounding me is lit up with positive vibes and kindness, I find myself riding a roller coaster of peaking and plummeting emotion; teetering from positive, heart-warming memories one moment to tear-induced recollections of times no longer within my grasp, all … More Reflections of Sadness, Elation, Hope & Regret – Happy Birthday, Mom: I Miss You Terribly
