The Call©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Just because I didn’t call, doesn’t mean I don’t care

Sometimes, I need not hear your voice to be there at your side

I always hold you close to my heart, so close I still hear your heartbeat

I know when you are safe and I know when you are in trouble

Never walk in fear because help is always near

Keep your head up, walk with strength, and people will look past your fear

Happiness and Bliss©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Time slips through my fingers as easily as sand

My thoughts wander through my head like a newborn crawling across the living room floor

But one thing I know is that I would do anything for you

and you would do anything for me

Our devotion to one another is deeper than the Black Hole

We are forever pleasing

Forever knowing what the other needs or desires

There’s no chance of deception for our minds are as one

We complete each other

Each day we motivate and inspire each other to always follow our dreams

And each day starts and ends with a smile and a kiss

Showing one another our happy bliss


Interpretation©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Sometimes we think we know what someone means
Dare not assume you know the answer
You may end up wasting precious time unnecessary

Sometimes the words you heard weren’t meant the way you heard them
Ask those that speak to clarify what you’ve heard
Too many friends, family members, bosses and the like are torn from those they needed
Because misinterpretations

Our hearts yearn for a perfect world
But we all spend too much time overworking things especially our thoughts
Forgetting that there is somewhat a natural order to things
Sometimes we don’t realize that we get in the way of that in which we are searching for
With all our over-thinking and misunderstanding ways
Sometimes we are our own worst enemies

Time will forgive us all, but we must learn to forgive ourselves
Stand back, let the world interpret you and don’t you interpret it

All I have is yours

I offer it to you for nothing

For I only want you

For you to see me as I am

For you to be everything that you can be

For you to feel free to let your heart be

What do you have for me?

I want not your money

I want not your soul

I just want for you to be free with me


Out Here On My Own©

Copyright 2014

By Felina Silver Robinson

I’m determined to rise up from the box that I’ve been stored in

I can’t survive here much longer

I can no longer breathe

I’m sure you would never find me

I’m deep in the city where no one dares to come

No one wants to teach me

So I must teach myself

Food is often scarce

So I find a way to harvest my own

I will not become a beggar

I expect no one to care for me

When I’m ailing

I will heal myself

Because I take from no one

I know that I can’t be poisoned

Because I do no wrong

I know I can’t be placed in an even colder cell

I’ve already had enough of my own private hell

So I live here quietly waiting for change

For a time when my box becomes a grand piece of land

Surrounded by homes that others would be proud to own

In a neighborhood that would no longer be feared

But wanted by all

We’d all share resources

And

No longer would I be all on my own

Doing everything meant just for me

I could be part of a bigger picture

Still knowing if I ever had to

I could in fact hold my own


This poem is dedicated to all those

Fighting the good fight

Longing and striving to

Be a part of bigger and better things


Out Here On My Own – Irene Cara


Today I…©

I took a deep breath

I smelled the lingering odor of last nights chinese food from another successful family birthday gathering

The bananas  that flavored my mother’s super moist banana cake gifted for my eldest daughter’s birthday celebration, perfumed my dining room

I daydreamed about the gorgeous chocolate cake that sat upon my table the night before. I’m still wishing I wasn’t allergic and could have enjoyed a piece. You’ve never seen a more inviting Trunchbull looking cake. Not at all due to its size for it measures in no way close to that of a Trunchbull cake, but in its appearance and its inviting glow. You have a want it, aim for it and take it, and later wish you never did kind of glow.

I sat questioning why helicopters circled overhead only to learn that a fire broke out nearby, I then sit hoping that no one gets hurt along the way during this melancholy kind of day as I try hard to push the tears out of my way saddened for the billion dollar jackpot that got away.

So, I laughed, talked, ate, then the day ended and I just couldn’t wait to climb into my warm inviting bed and that’s how I lived today


My Destiny©

Stumped by the beauty of the day

Destiny takes hold of my hand

Begging me to tag along

I tread lightly

Not wanting to disrupt

The tranquility

Hopeful to extend my stay

No questions

No answers

Just existence

Life decides my fate

Please hurry and show me the way

The Seed©

The seed well planted

Is the idea that survives once its been told

The idea that gains a life of its own

Once you’ve taken hold of it

As the years go by

Others take from this idea and make it their own

The seed that was once planted

Can now make it on its own

It needs little nourishment

Because it was once soundly planted

On the idea of its own making

Twins©

The twin is the pair who fight alone

Each for an identity of their own

While they may look-alike or much the same and know the others feelings

They have their own mind and their own feelings

The twin is often at odds with its partner

Mostly just out of fear of losing their individual self

Twins are just your ordinary odd couple both

At odds with one another

As well as themselves

Without each other their happiness fades

When forced to exist on their own

It’s possible

However, emptiness will always remain

As it does for anyone who loses a piece of themselves

Hold on to your sorrow for as long  as they have the other

Their happiness will continue to flourish

For twins have untapped strength and determination
