My heart belongs to the future and the the past

every thought, idea or dream is a part of who I am and who I am yet to become

each memory or experience is a piece of my trademark

no matter what you tell me it won’t and can’t change my direction

for its not the first time I’ve made this trip

I’ve been on this never-ending rollercoaster

It doesn’t allow stops, but occasionally I find new passengers

I never ask any questions but I always wonder why

But who am I to think I can change anything

I didn’t ask for this extended trip

but yet I’m still a passenger after all this time

Just going for yet another ride

You’d think by now that I would adjust

But no, I’m just another fool whose heart belongs to you

The pain in my heart©

Sometimes there is a pain that hurts so much

that you just can’t find the words to describe it

Your heart feels like its breaking inside out and backwards

Tears stream down your face leaving salt filled puddles

upon your keyboard and you’re not even sure why

But deep down you do know why you just can’t or won’t face it

Sometimes when you know something that is life altering

your heart tries to bury it so you don’t have to face it

But at some point you’ll have to deal with it

or someone else will do it for you

That pain may even be harder to face

True pain seeps through every pore

Through every nook and cranny

Through every vein in your body

It can even make your heart stop

Sometimes if it hurts enough

Pain can even break your heart

Please don’t let my heart get broken

Are we alone here?©


We tell ourselves we’re not alone

But the truth is

Who else can really understand the pain we feel

When you find you no longer have control of your life

When you have to battle for each next breath

When you don’t know what will work won’t work

When you can only hope and pray for a miracle

You know you are truly alone

No one can feel what you feel

They can’t understand what lies ahead

You fight the fear without knowing why

You just don’t want to give up

You want to fight until your very last breath

If you fight hard enough you might just will away the sickness

Before the end comes near

and you just disappear into the never ending darkness

Know that you’re strong enough to fight the fight

and beat the beast who brings you fear

We may be alone in thought

But we are never truly alone

Life made by design©

◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊

This is not who I chose to be

I have a life made by design

I do as I’m told

Schooled where I’m sent

Befriend those as directed

Study whats needed

Live where they need me

Work the jobs they have chosen for

I cry when they make me

My thoughts are not my own

I try to escape it

But I realize every attempt is useless

I’ve settled in nicely

It’s not as bad as you may think

My happiness may be manufactured

But at least I still get to laugh

Laughing means I live longer

and as long as I have life

I’m happy to live “life made by design”

The light of my life©

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

The light of m life

is you

each time you smile

each time you laugh

when I hear you giggle

when you cry and you let me comfort you

when you hold my hand when you need comfort

when you snuggle beside me for warmth

when you blink those big brown eyes when you want something

when you need help because you don’t have answers

when you want to share news about your day

when you’re angry and don’t know what to say

when you want to sit and watch old movies

when you want to listen to music with me

when you want to play games

when you come to me because its just me you want to see

You are the light of my life … just because you love me

On the road to happiness©

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Happy is what I am

Family is what I have

Proud is what my family makes me

Time is what I love spending with those that are close to me

Chance is something we all have to take

Life is something we all have to live

Regret is something we all must leave behind

Change is something we must move forward with

Facts are things we have to accept

Time is what we have plenty of

Choice is something that only we can make

Responsibility is something we all must own up to

The road is what you must travel to find true happiness

I have a vision for tomorrow …

I have a vision for tomorrow that doesn’t include violence.
It doesn’t include intimidation or a culture of brainwashing.
My vision is for individualism and free thinking people who don’t have or need to follow the destructive decisions of a smaller majority of unhappy people.
I choose to stand proud and do things that will be remembered for the good they were meant to do.
Those who bore me and those who look up to me will see the good and forgive any imperfections.
I wish to prove that good choices and good actions will be followed and will wipe out all the bad choices of others.
When I open my eyes I will see good in all people and will no longer be sad.
I have a vision….

Speeding Buses©

◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊

Today I saw two different MBTA buses
at two different times
Going in two different directions
They had their employer name in common
Along with the facts that they were speeding and rushing through a yellow to red light
Then I saw a speeding school bus
So now is it a must that all buses of any kind have to speed
I thought about how it must have felt
Felt to be a passenger on a speeding bus that didn’t care about my life
Didn’t care about just how easy it would have been to take the life of everyone on the bus
And maybe the lives of innocent bystanders on foot or in cars
Why does anyone carrying passengers think it’s OK to speed
Is time so much more important than life
I know that keeping schedules are important but not more important than the safety of those you transport
I wish for not having to fear riding on buses
But I do fear riding on buses
I’m almost certain I won’t ride a bus again anytime soon

This poem was written after witnessing three speeding buses today. It scares me to think of how many lives are put at risk every day due to careless driving.

Do you see me now?©

My eyes have seen a great many things

But as long as I can remember all I’ve wanted is to have you see me

A mother’s love is the only love a child needs

When she has that, she can become anything and everything she’s meant to be

If only you could have seen me the way I needed to be seen

Maybe, I wouldn’t have been so afraid

To reach for all I had hoped for

But I still always worry that I will fail you

That I will still bring you only disappointment

When you’re not looking

I shed a tear for each time you looked

But did not see me

For each time I was hurt and you didn’t seem to care

You always told me that no child of yours is weak

No child of yours has problems

You always said your children were destined for better things

It’s ok to have hopes and dreams for your children

But without love a child feels lost, forgotten and unwanted

You can’t wait until they’re all grown up and you have only hoped for the best

Without you to comfort me or to hear me when I needed to talk

I’ve made my share of mistakes

But I’ve certainly made my share of triumphs

I sometimes think of what might have been

Wishing things had been different

But if things had been different then maybe

I wouldn’t have the people who are now important to me

Those who took the time to talk to me when I needed to talk to them

Who where there to catch me when I fell

Those who hugged me when I triumphed

I hope you can truly see me now

If now you would take the time to hear me when I need you

Maybe there could be forgiveness which is something everyone deserves

Maybe then my children could forgive you too

The children who have never truly known you

For they are mere shadows in your life story

of those meant not to be seen

I’m happy to see




Do you see me now?

1. When people think they know someone because of their skin color.

2. When you’re walking down the street and a woman holds her purse tighter as she passes you.

3. When people say that you can’t be your childs mother because they don’t have the same complexion as you.

4. When people refuse to serve you because of what you look like.

5. When people follow you around the store from the minute you arrive.

6. When people think they have to decide the rights of others.

7. When people think they have the right to kill you because you don’t fit in with their ideals.

8. When people exclude you because you are different.

9. When people only want you to fill a quota, but still don’t think you’re good enough for the job.

10. When people assume that racism is only about color.
