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

You don’t know it, but you’re my hero©

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Whenever I need a shoulder

I turn and you are there

Whenever I’m about to give up

You move me forward

Whenever I leave

You bring me back

My heart is full

Full of gratitude

Just for you

Everything I ever wanted

Is tied up in you

In who you are

In who you want me to be

I’ve always wanted to be

cared for and now

I want no more

A certain kind of happiness

Has come to my door

It seems never ending

and leaves me wanting more

No wonder why you’re my hero

I don’t think you even know

I can’t bring myself to tell you

For I fear I might lose you

So I’ll leave things as they are

And go on thanking you from afar

I hope I’ll always be this happy

All thanks to my hero

The Beast©

◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊

Only a beast hurts without caring

No conscious for what he’s done

A laugh at the end of his task

Dripping sweat upon his victim

He laughs as the body twitches

He waits with baited breath as he hears each wailing gasp

He’s waiting for that one last breath

Before he can go on trying

To target his next victim

But to his disappointment

His victim arises

Shocked at where his strength came from

for he thought he lay there dying

Had he met his match

Maybe so

for his victim was no victim anymore

He laid down a beating on the beast

Who was no longer smiling

In fact, he began to wail

and then lay their gasping

But his only savior would come

From the ambulance that would

Carry him away to his new home

Where he surely would lose his freedom

Maybe now the beast would be tamed

or continue to get his own beating

Just as he deserves

The Mirror©

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

If you follow your heart

You might find that it has more to say

It may know you best

It just may show you the rest

Of the life that you have hoped truly existed

With your eyes wide open

Your guard down

Placing one foot in front of the other

and just taking the steps

That your heart lays out for you

There’s no rush

No time clock

No one forcing your hand

Just a choice to let your heart take the lead

No more forcing your eyes closed

No more butterflies in your stomach

No more turning back

Just accepting, trusting footsteps forward

Then maybe you’ll find a friend in me and

The love you needed for a time

The sun will shine

The clouds will lift

The rain will stop

and the birds will sing

In time for your new life to begin

Glad to have you back again

Stronger than ever before

Trying, willing and ready

to see me as I really am

The me you see every day

When you look into the mirror

Don’t forget to open your big beautiful eyes

Oh how glad I am to live once again

The Words That Get Us Through The Day

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

When we wake each morn

We wait to hear the words that you’re going to say

The words that get us through the day

We’re never sure of what to wear

How to feel

What to think or

Where to go

Until we hear those words from you

The laughter in your smile that we feel without seeing you

We picture you sitting in your comfy chair

Choosing each word so carefully

Knowing that we sit idly by waiting for their display

A sentence, a line, a phrase, a story

Anything just to get us on our way

Thank you for sharing

The words that get us through the day

Someone to Look up to

♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦

As a child I looked up to you

Curious, full of hope and admiration

You showed me a side of myself

I wasn’t willing to share

Now that I’m older

Maybe they’ll understand me

The me inside that was sheltered

But has so much to say

I’m not like the majority

But I know there are more like me

My head is full of stories that I’d love to share with you

But how do I tell you

How do I share it

I feel as though I might lose a part of me

I’ll have to find a way to let it go

To give myself a chance

To offer up a little of myself

And the past that helped me through

Thank you for watching over me

And giving me someone to look up to

That helped me through both the good and the bad

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know you

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Each of us bound to the life that’s been chosen for us

Our fate is marked when we take our first breath

We are all innocent when first we arrive

We must be careful when choosing which road to take

All that we see may not be as it seems

Choices must be made with care

For they will determine  which road you will take

Opinions can’t be made solely on what is seen

We will have to live up to expectations of all those watching over us

Our schooling will prepare us for the career we hope to obtain

Our religion or beliefs will guide us morally

Love and friendship will handle the rest

As long as you stay true to who and what you want to be

Life should go your way

Nothing will come easy

Hard work reaps reward

Be thankful and grateful for each day

Show compassion and understanding to those who struggle

Struggle to find their way as you have found yours

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know you

The Late Great John F Kennedy

Was shot on November 22, 1963

I was just 7 and a half months old

Too young to understand what everyone else was feeling

I know that my mother was working

She started off on her feet

But when the news was shared

She dropped to her knees

The tears streaming down her tired face

She wasn’t thinking

Stripped of thought

She went running

Home to us, her children

She held each one of us

One by one

Its been said that she was singing

A song that no one knew

It had not been heard before

She gathered us up and took us

She took us to the Boston Common

Where many others stood about

About in a daze

Everyone, singing, sobbing and soothing

All those that stood about

At some point everyone started to dispurse and

Return home or back to wherever they had come

But hours, days, weeks months and years went by

And no one ever understood why

Why anyone would want to harm such a good guy

John F Kennedy was such an honorable man

He was the best President we had ever had

How were people to go on without being able to understand

The Why or the how

Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for JFK’s murder

Some still say that he wasn’t the one

People are still trying to figure out who really took the life of such a great man

If in fact it wasn’t Lee Harvey Oswald

No one has forgotten

No one could ever forget

One of the greatest men to have ever lived

His family still stands strong

Honoring his memory with all those both near and far

Take a moment to remember a man

Who gave his life for this great country of ours

He like many others fought a thankless fight

All so that we the people could live on with freedom and in peace

Our love is never ending for John F Kennedy

We are not always aware of what we have

We are not always willing to see the offers before us

We may hold our eyes closed to our reality

In the end we always know what’s coming

We always know that steps that need to be taken

To make all that needs to happen, happen

Sometimes we must call on unexpected for help

But we swallow our pride

and what needs to be done

Gets done

and we have achieved sccess


Eyes as full as the ocean

Don’t close your eyes to the pain

A heart of gold

Let your heart heal the wounded

A soul like no other

Let your soul guide you through

You are open to forgiveness

Traveling through time

Lifetimes over

Nothing has changed

We see the same loss

We know the same devastation

There are some who are forgiving

But more that are unforgiving

We live in the land of hope

But you only have hope

If you feel hope

You have to want things to be

To Be different than they were

Every time before

In centuries past

In centuries ahead

Make the change

To begin again

To give our children

and their children

The chance to carry on

To become the things

We could never be

To do the things that we could never do

Through these eyes as full as the ocean

I can see all there is

and all there was

and this time

I want things to be different

Take away the storms that kill

Take away the guns that end lives

Take away the words that send young ones to their deaths

Take away the racism that separate the people

Take away the poverty that leaves those begging

Take away the shame that keep people hidden

Give everyone Eyes as Full as the Ocean
