When your partner doesn’t hear you

Not because they can’t
But because they won’t
When you know you deserve better
 But end up with what you see
Is what you get
You are the glue that holds everything together
If you’re not doing it
Nothing will get done
If you’re not buying it
You don’t get what you need
Forget about what you want
When he’s angry
He lashes out at everyone
Especially you
His apologies are few and far in-between
When they do come
They are lacking sincerity and remorse
You try to disguise your pain
But it gets harder each time
As time goes on you become nothing
But a hardened shell
Your own family finds you hard to recognize
No longer do you wear the smile they became so accustomed to seeing
This time your heart seems uncertain if
It can forgive
If it wants to forgive
If it will forgive
Isn’t the answer to what is broken
In your love
Love just hurts
Hard choices must come about
In the end
Love may just not be worth it

This Old Chair of Mine©

This old chair of mine

Has kept me warm

It’s seen me through all my ails

It’s seen me come

It’s seen me go

It’s held my tears

It’s held my hand when no one else was near

This old chair of mine

Has been the companion no one else could be

Although now tattered and torn

No longer holding onto it’s natural beauty

That means nothing to me

It holds all the character I need

It does the job no one else has offered to do

I owe my strength to the one and only old chair of mine


The Road to a Better Tomorrow© by Felina Silver Robinson

Thursday night Hillary Clinton made history as she accepted the official Democratic Nomination. She along with her chosen Vice Presidential candidate, Tim Kaine vowed to do right by our country. We all want to work together to “build a better tomorrow for our children”. This is an attainable goal should all those desiring its outcome put aside their petty difference and do the work that needs to be done.

Our future is at stake here. There is no time for throwing words that cut like swords at one another.  Donald Trump has been an outstanding business person and has accomplished more than most men and women. Unfortunately, Donald Trump’s presidential run as a Republican candidate hasn’t been as exemplary. There is reason for concern here, mostly because of Trump’s insatiable appetite for drama. There is no room in the Presidential office for “Sarcasm” that could potentially lead to the downfall of our blessed country.  A President must be taken seriously. Furthermore, there needs to be a continued professional decorum, which has lacked throughout much of Mr. Trump’s campaign. Despite Mr. Trump’s popularity among Republicans, it’s unimaginable that any Democrats would come around to his way of thinking. Certainly, you’ve been following  both sides of the campaign, therefore there is no need to repeat all the reasons there are to be concerned about Donald Trump.

While it’s understood that campaigns get dirty, voters both want and need the focus to be on the real issues ahead and just how we’ll face them.  But instead, we find ourselves wondering if Donald Trump is guilty of raping someone and wondering why there is no more being said about it. Instead, the focus was conveniently turned back to Hillary Clinton and yet another email scam with Mr. Trump suggesting that the “Russian’s hack into the system to find Hillary’s missing emails.” This after his many racially charged comments about various ethnic groups. Let’s not get started on his involvement about “Black Lives Matter.”

Now that both candidates have officially accepted their nominations and Hillary Clinton making history as the first female presidential candidate, the next four months should tell us many stories. Hopefully, voters will be able to sift through all the garbage and do the right thing for our country when November 8th rolls around.

Kudos to Bernie Sanders for his dedication and his willingness to come together as a team player to help the Democratic team present a united front.  This is the way politics should be working together for the common good of the people.

May all those involved in path to the Whitehouse remember what really matters and keep it clean for the sake of our children, who deserve the best each candidate has to offer the United States of America.  May the best man or woman prevail.
