My Poem of the Day

(08/25/14)

Bring Down The Walls

Walls aren’t just made of plaster, brick and stone

Some walls are invisible

but are stronger than any stone

The strongest walls are made of emotions

Pain

Anger

Fear

Prejudice

Resentment

Ignorance

Loss

And

Blame

Each of these get in the way of reason

Time

Healing

Learning

And

Reflection

Brings

Rationalism

Then and only then

Will you be able to

Bring Down the Walls

And

Your Heart will be fully open

My Poem of the Day

(08/05/14)

I’m determined to make you happy, even if just for a while

I see a smile pulling at the corners of your mouth

You seem to fight the smile

But it’s meant to have its way

I see a twinkle tug at the lines of your eyes

You try to look down to chase away the sparkle

But something inside

Gives the win to the twinkle

Now your eyes are shining brightly

I can hear a laugh trying to works its way from your stomach through your mouth

But your body language proves you are trying to hold it back

So I pretend not to see the wall ahead of me

And walk dead straight into it bumping my head

You’ve lost the tug of war and your laugh belts its way out

Win, Lose, or Draw

You’re no match for me when…

I’m determined to make you happy, even if just for a while

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
