Friends In High Places©

Copyright 2014

by Felina Silver Robinson

My friends are in high places
Seated so high
One on the left and one on the right
They keep watch over plenty
They’re entrusted to rule the world
I’m not usually someone to follow
But this time I’ve chosen the path
I promised to be faithful
If you show me a thing or too
I will lead them to you quickly
But only if you’ll save them
And send them back to me
I have friends in high places
But it means nothing if I can’t trust them

Can I call you one?


Me and My Bully©

Felina Silver Robinson


Even if you weren’t looking at me, I saw you
Even if you weren’t talking to me, I heard you
Even if you didn’t invite me, I really wanted to go
Even though you didn’t hear me, I was talking to you

You asked me why I’m always crying,
But I know you really don’t care
When I’m not looking, your laughing with your friends about me

At the beginning of the year I was happy and smiling
I was full of laughter
Walking around and hanging with my friends

Two months of knowing you
No one would dare to be my friend
Destined to be alone
I was always alone
Except for when you and your friends would hurt me

Who are you? You’re my Bully!

Why do you hurt me?
Because you feel small inside
Because those you love have no time for you
They leave you out in the cold
Your friends just use you, because you’re rich
Because they know you are going places and someday, they might need you

Don’t you know, you’re just like me
You’re bullied too, so stop hurting me and maybe just maybe
We can just be friends

I wrote this for all the kids that I know that are now being bullied or

was once bullied.
Stand up and take back your life.
Turn your bully into your friend,
Your bully is just as lonely as you are and maybe even lonelier.

I created the slide below to hopefully be used as an educational tool. I hope it helps.


With a new school year just a month away, remember that there is no place for bullying in anyone’s lives.

Bullying has no place anywhere. Stop the pain of the innocent.

Use your voice and stop abusers in their tracks.

Out to Sea©

My friend she travels here and there

Although she’s smiling, her pain is clear as can be

As she seems full of sadness

 She sounds as though she misses home

And all of whom she loves

 Traveling sure takes its toll

When you are out to sea

A never-ending yearning for what use to be

She sits there with her husband, lover, and friend

Although he’s everything she ever hoped for

She still seems to be missing her friends and family

 There seems to be no substitute

For the love of family and friends

 No ocean big or small

No sunset or moonrise

Nor the stars at night

 Why not come home my dear friend

For we miss you just as you miss us

Come in all sizes and are all different ages

They sometimes want what you want and need what you need

They help you make the right decisions

Sometimes they tell you things you are not ready to hear

But you listen, because you know they are sincere

and more often than not, they are right


They take a beating

They stay through thick and thin

Just don’t abuse them because the good ones are hard to find

I’m the kind that would do whatever it takes to see you happy

I would help you be the best you that you can be

I would help you do those things you’ve always been too afraid to do

I would let you know that you can do almost anything

Because a true friend is that part of you that you always wanted to be


They will not falter

They will be there forever, if you let them

True Friendship Is

There when you need them

There when you don’t

They understand nothing

While understanding everything

They love you

They hate you

They know you

They owe you

and sometimes they own you

When no one else wants to listen

You can bend their ear

A friend won’t laugh at you when you want to wear footed PJs while watching scary movies

A friend comforts you when no one else will

They tell you everything’s going to be alright

When most likely it may not be

A true friend is the best comfort and will be there through thick and thin

Thank you for not being a fair weather friend

When I was young I didn’t have much

Not because we were poor

Because we weren’t

Not because no one cared

Because everyone did

It was because my parents wanted to teach me

That there are many more among us that truly have nothing

We have each other

We have our neighbors

We have our church

We have our memories

We have all that we need

When I was young

My idols could be found on TV

My idols were my neighbors

My idols were my friends

My idols were my family

Now many of them have passed

The shows have come and gone

My friends have moved away

And my family, those that remain

are mostly scattered about

So my idols are now my children and my husband and the family that remains

My idols are

The children of the world that will sculpt our future

Those who are hard at work

Those that are surviving

Those who are waiting to be noticed

Those who are waiting for help

Those who are fighting for their lives

Idols come in all shapes and sizes

Idols come


Idols go

But we must go on living

Little do you know

You too are someone’s Idol


My Darkened Night©

Dark is the night

My heart too feels darkened

Now knowing that I can’t have you

I’m lost with no direction

No longer with desire

since knowing you are no longer mine

There are stars lighting up the sky

But they bring sorrow instead of delight

For I have no one to share them with

Here on this dark night

You laugh at my troubles

I don’t how to respond

For once you were my savior

Now I sit trembling on the hillside

Afraid to go home

For the darkness won’t leave me

I’m shivering alone here

I venture on home

Upon entry inside

All I see is your smile

And the sorrow for having disappointed

The one you so deeply loved

You grab me tight

Promising that you’ll never again leave me

I tremble inside

But not because I’m sad

But because I never again thought you’d be mine

A single tear rolls down my cheek

You wipe it dry and replace it with a kiss

Now my darkened night will pass with the morning’s light

And my heart has returned to its rightful place





A Lucky While Grateful Me©

This morning

I will strip down to my bare skin

To lay upon the surgical table

I will trust doctors and nurses to control my destiny

While I lay in wait in an unconscious state

My thoughts will be of my good fortune

The privilege and honor to be mother to the most amazing children

To know all that I know

And to have achieved all that I have accomplished

I am eternally grateful

And most certainly lucky

For each chance at this life that I have already been given

I thank you for whatever role

You may have in my eternal gratitude
