The Needy Cycle

Never realizing how demanding they seem

Offended when others don’t bend at their whim

Expecting that no matter what is going on

Everyone should drop what they are doing for them

Don’t understand their behaviours drive a wedge

Yet they wonder why no one will budge as they cry out “im on edge”

Yearning for companionship they cling to assumptions of what should occur

Sail Without Winds

Each year I have travelled along your side
Every moment we share fills me with pride
The journey may not have been easy to bare
Outcomes have sometimes been unfair
Sorrow and sadness found us it’s true
Many struggles and disappointments
we have been through
Here we stand still united as one now
We made it through the rocky waters somehow
I write this note so filled with love for who you are
Without you, I am like sails without wind
I wouldn’t make it on my own too far!

More than

What I have does not define me
There is so much that you cannot see

Only way to know the truth is to seek with open mind
Do not rush the process it will take time

Many people will judge without any clue
No one knows all I have been through

A person is more than what plaques them
Every one has a story with a beginning, middle and end

Notice the many roles that I play
Daughter, sister, wife and friend

Letter To Heaven’s Angel

Dearest Sweet Angel

I am writing you this letter as I thought of you today
I feel I am strong enough to finally be able to say
For many years I prayed for strength to make it through
My world seemed so empty without you

When i lost you 5 years ago my world fell apart
When He called you home you took with you my heart
The journey to here has not be easy on me at all
I struggled to find my footing after the hardest fall

I know you are safe,happy and free
That is what brings comfort to me
How terrible I would feel if my pain cost you your wings
When i was in the midst of grief i could not see these things

So here i pour out my heart to finally move on
I keep you in my memory you have been here all along
I want you to remember how much you are loved whole heartedly
I choose today to move forward and let you run free

Please remember I love you more than words can ever say
Keep a place near you I will join you one day

Love always and forever till the end
Your mommy and friend

Letter to departed soul

I wrote to you this letter
To help me heal the pain
Holding on to the loss
Leaves me nothing to gain
I see you in a safe place playing joyfully
I know our lives are on different planes now
One day you will find your way to me
I try to live my life healthy as i can be
I wonder if you look down proudly upon me
My heart will always have a void deep inside
But i was blessed enough to carry you
This thought always fills me with pride
I am learning how to be whole again
I know there are more roles to fill
May not be able to be a mother but can be a wife and friend
So many years have passed by
But the thought of you still makes me cry
Often the word i hear myself repeat is “why”
I ask for your help to heal my wounded heart
I am working at letting go as best i can
I struggle internally with that part
Give me a sign that I will be alright
Help me make it through each day and night
I send you my love and wish you the best
I want to let your spirit finally rest

Defeat or Victory: Earth’s Final Act

Take in the essence of the earth
Take time to marvel at the majestic views
Views of greens and blues scattered
Scattered among hues of colours

Colours so vibrant and clear
Colours that represent life
Life that sustains and is nurturing
Nurturing the hungry souls

Souls roam the earth carelessly
Souls take for granted what can be lost
Lost suddenly without warning to spare
Spare the earth the torture of the abused

Abused by litter tossed aside
Abused by air sick with diseases
Diseases from pollution lingering
Lingering germs contaminating all

All it takes is simple respect
All you need is concern
Concern for mankind’s health
Health of all living beings

Beings to show compassion
Compassion for all living things
Things to consider as you walk around
Around us life has a story to tell

Tell all you know now is the time
Tell those who will listen to think
Think of how your actions play
Play the part in either earth’s victory
Or earth’s sad defeat

Maneuvering The Journey

Today I start my life anew
Learning from the past
Gathering knowledge
From all I have been through

Release myself from my chains
No longer bound in the depths
Despair will no longer control me
I can see clearly what I have to gain

My feet are planted on the ground
The winds of time may blow strong
I will stand strong with no fear
I know people who care will be around

Taken deep breaths I walk proud again
Secure in the power of my own heart
A journey I must take to further myself
Truth and honesty my solid friends

I know I may stumble and may often fall
I will not quit and will not cry
Hardships will be there but i will succeed
The lesson is in the journey after all

Each small step i take now
I will let my heart guide me
My soul will grow strong
I can maneuver the obstacles
I have learned how

Light Rage

Rushing to go
Time drags

Anger building
Storm inside
Near imploding

Red lights bring
Burning rage
In mad rush

All in race
For flashing green
Tires spin so rapidly
They scream

Impatience brings to end
Lives of all involved
Children,adults, animals
Victims of stupidity
