My Poem of the Day

(09/03/14)

Coming or Going©

Today

Driving through my neighborhood

I saw

For Sale Signs

Open House Signs

Moving Signs

And

Yard Sale Signs

Everyone is Coming

Everyone is Going

In talking to friends and neighbors

I’ve come to find

That

Their kids are now going to private school

So now even the students are leaving

It’s a sign of the times

Overcrowding

At

Home

And

At

School

No more comfort

So we have to make our own

What’s good for some

Is bad for others

There are somethings that not even

A

Pretty flowerbed

A fresh coat of paint

Block Parties in the summer

Community yard sales

Yankee Swaps in December

And

Good neighbors

Can fix

So tell me

Are you coming or going

My Poem of the Day

(09/02/14)

This world is “Ours”©

The world I was born into

Is clean, yet dirty

Where

Some are wealthy, some are poor

Some are starving, others eat plenty

Some are homeless, some have beds for many

Some are grateful, some are entitled

Some are charitable and would give their last dollar

Others will beat you and send you packing

The person I am is

Tolerant and forgiving

Believing that everyone can change

I hope for the day

That we wipe out the threat or even the idea of

War

Racism

Hate

Selfishness

Poverty

and

Have more

Selflessness

Understanding

Patience

And

Love for one another

This world is “Ours”

It was made for each and every one of us

Life is happier when people work together

And

Not against each other

The Glow©

My inner glow has brought me strength

It seems now to completes me

Believing I could find my way

I know now there’s no need to fight this battle alone

The walls I built

Must be torn down

Before the healing can begin

I think no longer of all my pain

My thoughts are strong

And full of hope

I feel relaxed

And even poised

Thanks to the love of friends and family

They’ve given me reason to push forward

Even after I turned them away

In the end

When all the work has been done

I’ll be standing in my afterglow

Thanks to all of them

Happy Days

Felina Alicia and Nana Kangas Nov 1997 Felina Alicia and Rose Nov 1997

Days when you wake up knowing

There’s a group of people

Who love you for all that you are

And

All that you’re not

They make you happy when you’re sad

They tell you when you’re wrong not just so they can be right

They look ahead when you can only look back

They give you life when you’re feeling lifeless

Happy Days

On Tap

For you and me

****

Your Friends

****

Your Family

****

Make a pack

****

To keep happy days on tap

At no cost

No ticket needed

And no pass

Just a smile

That will go a mile

As long as you play happy

You can stay happy

Leave all your baggage behind

Come and enjoy our

Happy Days

My Poem of the Day

(09/10/2013)

Me and My Bully

Even if you weren’t looking at me, I saw you
Even if you weren’t talking to me, I heard you
Even if you didn’t invite me, I really wanted to go
Even though you didn’t hear me, I was talking to you

You asked me why I’m always crying,
But I know you really don’t care
When I’m not looking, your laughing with your friends about me

At the beginning of the year I was happy and smiling
I was full of laughter
Walking around and hanging with my friends

Two months of knowing you
No one would dare to be my friend
I was destined to be alone
I was always alone
Except for when you and your friends would hurt me

Who are you? You’re my Bully!

Why do you hurt me?
Because you feel small inside
Because those you love have no time for you
They leave you out in the cold
Your friends just use you, because you’re rich
Because they know you are going places and someday, they might need you

Don’t you know, you’re just like me
You’re bullied too, so stop hurting me and maybe just maybe
We can just be friends

I wrote this for all the kids that I know that are now being or that have been bullied.
Stand up and take back your life.
Turn your bully into your friend,
Your bully is just as lonely as you are and maybe even lonelier.

I created the slide below to hopefully be used as an educational tool. I hope it helps.

Bullies

102800 Seth Alicia and the gang

Crazy Beautiful

When we were young

We could be who we wanted to be

Do what we wanted to do

We made faces that only a mother could love

Our imaginations were endless

No one judged us

We enjoyed endless hours of fun

laughing and dancing it up

Oh what we would all give to be there again

Where each day was mindless and timeless

Free and on the run to nowhere

We were all
