Still Mine
.. ..
.. ..
For many years I thought she was gone
Then I realized she was still mine.
Being told by a friend, that no one could
Take her from me: I thought he was wrong
But life went on with out her.
Like a cracking glass - in the oven
My mind was shattered - at the loss
Of my little Raven.
Staring at the clock wondering what she was doing,
Pondering the way things should have been.
My mistakes like gangrenous pus running down my soul,
Would choke the hope out of me.
Depression, opening doors to see,
fighting internal wars.
I had others to love, but they too
Were victims of my obsession.
Now there gone as well.
It has been said that time heals,
Yet the hour glass runs slow for me.

Song of Mercy

Please don't cry
.. ..
Sometimes I know you will cry,
For you are small and need to be heard.
Sometimes you take my breath away,
For your antics are sweet in my heart they stay.
I rejoice in your musings as you grow,
All the questions you ask as you try to know.
If I sometimes forget how precious you are,
Understand I make mistakes, a simple human.
I hope that your life teaches you love,
And that with great trust in the Father above
We will enjoy each other through eternity.
We are Family, the greatest gift.

Why God?
Can I ask God why when I misunderstand?
Can I argue with Him when I disagree with His plan?
Can I feel forgotten when my faith He would stretch
Can I feel fear when He asks what seems to much?
Can I trust Him with my feelings, that is the question,
Can I remember His endless love is not that of a human?
If I can exult with joy,
If I can rejoice in His gifts
If I can feel His presence
If I can love Him
If I can accept there is none above Him
If I can testify of Jesus Christ
Then I can take all my heart to Him
For He is family, and He knows me
There is nothing to hide
No shame to relate
I can ask Him my questions for He loves me
He loves you too

Friendship Taking Flight
.. ..
.. ..
Flocking, pairing, flying alone-
Tentative hatchling-
Wobbling, stumbling, and tripping over garland nest.
Pecking, raspberries bursting, earthworms squirming
Substance insuring.
Will it live or die-
Nature or nurture-
From a nestling, souls wresting
Not to closely meshing
Closely meshing
Wings touching,
Friendship taking flight

Song of Mercy

.. ..
.. ..
When I pondered, upon my bed
Things so grand, and thought as dead
Wondering, a mystery
Works of old, sweet history
God was said, sagacity's stand
Immeasurable, like sand
Eternal, golden and grand.
.. ..
Then I pondered, deep in thought
I looked for truth, so true I sought
The golden light, for me shone
Mortal plans, left all alone
Along the way, newer rife
Sought a bride, His spotless wife
Eternal, this golden life.
.. ..
Again I pondered, thought true
To the end, for not a few
Could truth be, entwined in both
God tis same, just human growth
In His time, already shed
Tis a truth, yet to be read
Eternal, golden the head.

Great Value

Why me Lord?
If you let the sunshine on allÖ.
And the rains fall on allÖ..
What ever is the value of being in the kingdom?

If I were grass I would be from IrelandÖ.
Enduring the never ending rainÖ.
Life just a fleeting moment, a seasonÖ..
What ever is the value of being in the kingdom?

If I were a planet it would be PlutoÖ..
Not even a real planetÖ..
Ever circling the warmth, seeing it, yet cold eternally,
What ever is the value of being in the kingdom?

If I were a flower I would love the grassÖ..
If I were the universe I would love the dark and coldÖ.
If I were a moment I would choose to be happyÖ.
What ever is the value of being in the kingdom?

I am the grass, shaded by the beauty,
I am a moon, reflecting the glory of the sun,
I am a moment rushing into eternity with you,
What ever is the value of being in the kingdom?

Why not me Lord,
This is where you designed me to be,
I agreed to your plan and told you I would go,
Into the kingdom, into the warmth, into the Sweet Fragrance.

The Forum

I canít see your smile when you are glad,
Or your frown when you are sad.
Yet I can hurt when you are in pain,
Even though I donít know your name.

We may never chat over coffee,
Or laugh when children cry ďlook at me!Ē
But we will share here in the forum

I want you to know that I was looking,
It was your friendship that I was missing.
As unhealthy people here I had to let go,
Yet around the world my friendships grow.

No, we won't get together to see the latest show,
Or each others families ever know,
But we will share here in the forum.

So bring your muse, your joy, your despair,
As a friend Ill try to check in and be here.
Right here in the forum.

I love you mom,
It was the last thing I heard
Then she was gone.

Hours stealing by,
No phone call or information,
Me asking why.

At last dusk came,
So the police were called,
They took her name.

Hours rumbling past,
Faith beginning to waver,
A call at last.

Come get me please,
Rushing to her location,
My heart at ease.

Why? Gently asked,
No one loves me at home,
New truth unmasked.

Give me grace Lord,
Help me understand my part,
Heal her heart Lord.

I will run to you

Reading, praying, falling, stopping,
Running, hiding, shame filled, forgetting,
Gracious, merciful, forgiving, divinity,
Crying, running, stumbling, leaping,
Trusting, falling, praying, reading.

Knowing You

Trying to be perfect,
Trying to earn your love,
Trying to hide my sin
Knowing you see from above.

Failing to be perfect,
Failing to earn your love,
Failing to hide my sin,
Knowing you heal from above.

Admitting your perfect
Admitting your great love,
Admitting all my sin,
Knowing you hear from above.

You alone are perfect,
You giving endless love,
You forgiving my sin,
Knowing you see from above.

Alabaster Heart

Break the seal of your heart,
With the Lord have a new start.
Open alabaster heart,

Pour out, pour out and pour down,
No longer be caught and bound.
Open alabaster heart,

Self is trying to preserve,
Hide not from Him, no reserve.
Open alabaster heart,

Seize what Christ is offering,
Seize Christ our offering.
Be filled alabaster heart.

He saw from above,
She hurt, she loved,
He saw, he saved
Her path he paved
She knelt, she believed
He healed, He washed
He sealed, He clothed

The Last shall be First

He plucked my from the fiery gate
And when at the banquet my place I took
I found myself in a corner nook
With shadows long, I quacked and shook
Far away in the distance place by the cooks
I wondered why for me disgrace was chose
I had served with hope faith love and prose
Yet at the end, my heart nearly froze
Then startled was I my Savior to see
Steadfastly with purpose approaching me
As martyr, prayer warrior and minister saw
On my plate food was placed served first you see
Though humbled and small and last in the list
First I was chose to receive His hug and kiss.

Is the Bible the Truth?

Is the bible Truth or
Or only contain truth
Is the bible flowing
Changed by evolving society
Was Christ really Divine
Or was He merely wise
Containing a shadow of the divine
How does the sinner know
What experience does not testify
What does the saint know
Whoís life is infused with His glory
When I was in doubt, I wandered lost
Then in a moment I became
A child of the living god
Jesus dwells in me.
What you reason away
I know by faith imparted to me
The word is infallible indeed

A flower opening
A new child born
The dawn radiant
The universe endless
Bumble bees in flight
Briar roses blossoming
The light invented
The first flight
Moonís first landing
Mars first rover
The volcanoís flow
The seaís unknown
My mind expanded
My personal epiphany

My Small Little Faith

I prayed a prayer of faith
Such a small little faith
Yet I know that itís enough
For my Father in heaven to grow
Like a musterd seed is sown
It grows into a might shelter
Reminding me I am Godís own.

So You They Will See

Hide me in the shadow of Your wind,
So that when to bless Your heart
Thy command I obey
You they will see, You they will praise.
If love I give to bless another,
With you in mind, You to please,
If Your word I heed
To love my enemy as my brother,
Hide me behind Your glory
So it is You my foe will see.
As flavorful salt, and a light for thee,
Help me share Your word, good news story.
Above all else, hide me in Thee
So it is You they will see.

Song of Mercy
02-06-09, 07:31 PM
Only in you is my heart revived,
Tenderly you hold my hand,
You know me and are alive.

Only in you is my heart relieved,
Gently you heal my wounds,
I know you and believe.

Only in you is my heart remade,
Patiently you tend the soil,
You know me, use your spade.

Only in you does my heart rejoice,
Lovingly you share yourself,
I know you and your voice.

Only in you does my heart repose,
Kindly you give me rest,
You know me, defeat my foes.

Only in you is my heart revived,
Tenderly you hold my hand,
I know you and am alive.

Thank you

I donít know you, canít see your face,
But because of your post, your grace,
I learn about you, I learn about me.
Hindsight teaches us both, we see
Like a mirror, you on your side
Me on mine, the gap both small and wide.
I just wanted to say thank you,
I wanted to say you matter to me.

Iíll never

Iíll never break our trust, I hope
Iíll never hurt you on purpose, I hope
Iíll never talk negatively about you, I hope
Iíll never stop loving you, I know.

With pen and paper and words I trod.
They are my place, my true abode.
Yet something is missing oft I see,
do these words of mine bring you Glory?
I asked for shelter and for grace,
I asked to be hidden not taking your place,
Now I wonder your Magesty,
What lessons to share so people will see.
Some of the Bible's message is hard.
No cute little Rhymes for cute little cards.
Mercy and grace are easy to write,
Yet judjment and wrath also shine with your light.
So if in prose I am choosen to show you care,
Be with me Father as your word I share.

My Roses

Friends are roses
Foes are too
Friends have thorns
At times they prick you
Friends are people
Foes are too
Friends make errors
That may affect you
I accept you friend,
With thorns and errors,
With perfumed grace
I called you friend
that means I love you

Song of Mercy
02-19-09, 05:21 PM
It hurts sometimes when stepping out
Yet growth is what life is all about
Sometimes joy, sometime a frustrated shout
Because friendship at times comes with doubt

If I hurt you I will cry, then I will grow
If I hurt you and you stay then I will know
That my beautiful friendís heart is pure gold
My good friend, please donít cry or fear being bold.

Reflections from the mirror shared by we
Words that are true help me to see
Then a part of my burdens are set free.
Thank you so much for being friends with me.

Song of Mercy
02-20-09, 12:14 PM
Miss steps are not hard to do
A wrong or harsh word or two
Wrenching the soul painfully true
I think I made a misstep with you

So much more I could write
But simple words seem so right
A humbled ego is my plight
I ask for mercy, this painful night.

Song of Mercy
02-21-09, 06:35 AM
Love and pain usually walk together
You canít have one without the other.
Pain does not have to be yet another end
A marker of growth, learning to bend

Pain often leads us to a healing pathway
For love does not hurt every day
Often it blossoms as together we work
So pursue love, it is worth the hurt

Song of Mercy
02-21-09, 08:10 PM
I remember when he used to rage,
As mothers attention was engaged
In other things besides my child
Letting my own interest run wild.

I remember when in therapy
A wise woman confronted me
She made me see my selfishness
I saw his heart, I saw my mess.

I remember when I read a book
I opened myself and started to look
At his moments worthy of praise
moments he shone, we were both amazed.

I remember when the praise a habit,
His healthy esteem the reward of it.
Health disorders may have been a part
Accepting responsibility was the gift of my heart.

My dear friend,
What can I do,
To ease hurt Iíve caused you?

I could cry,
And inside die.
But Iíd rather be the real me.

A bit different,
A lot healthier,
Yet afraid Iíve lost forever.

My dear friend.
What can I do,
To ease the hurt Iíve caused you?

Song of Mercy
02-22-09, 06:58 AM
How do I?
Son, like this.
Is this right?
Face radiant bright.

All he made.
All I ate.
It was good.
He was proud.

Please donít think
Change is impossible.
My sweet son,
A victory won.

The mask you see,
May be a tool for me,
To heal my mind,
So we can heal his mind.
My mask you see is a tool for me.

I see

Sheís in silly mode again.
Little things, I smile
As I watch my friend
My child too. Giving it a spin,

Clearly, sheís in silly mode.
A little dance with her cup,
Getting mamma to look.
Antics in our small abode,

Silly, it creates a pressure in me,
Of compassion for them all.
Iím not referring to a small child
Rather, a girl, whoís in silly mode, I see.

Song of Mercy
02-23-09, 01:37 PM
This two dimensional me you see
Is not what I see looking at me.
In the world I cant carefully choose
Safe words that will ensure I don’t lose
Face in front of an engaging group.
You are safe, helping me to regroup.

In my mind where none can see
Are trunks full of memories,
Locked up tight so I donít see,
Trunks filled up with history.

One day the Lord said to me
ďTime to clean and set you free,
What weíll do is open one
Clean the contents then move on.Ē

The idea seemed good to me.
So, we opened up one trunk
And revealed its trunkish gunk
Things I saw were hard to see,

In my trunks of memories.
I saw a dad late at night,
Moms face bloody from a fight,
Us running away on a flight,
A lost teen, who wore her plight.

With me and God both in tears
I begged letís get out of here,
First he said ďletís take a look,Ē
Shiny trunks in every nook.

Yet one he had saved for me.
From his bosom with a key,
ďThis trunk is the best one of all
Itís the day you heard my call
Itís the day you turned to me.Ē

When trunkish gunk is left free
Trunkish gunk is all you see
Though times itís hard cleaning up
Whatís left is a healed heart of love.

Oh boy did she find out,
What the silly poem was about.
Now my angel, my girl
Twirls, and twirls and twirls.

For Rily, the best friend I have ever had.

My best friend, you hurt you cry,
and wonder why,
life has to be so hard for you.
What reason can be had?
Except life is both good and bad.
You see, I think you and me,
Are best friends because we see,
In you reflections of me.
I used to wonder why,
I used to scream and cry,
So many hard things I had to go throughÖ
All worth it now because I see you.
Thank you for seeing me too.

The essence of thank you,
What does it mean?
Does it mean gratitude?
The essence of gratitude,
What does it mean?
Is it an extension of thank you?

It is a way of living life.
It is an attitude.
It says I will not lay down
When life tries to bring me down,
It is an attitude.
It is a hinged door to life.

Its so funny now that I think about it.
Putting up and taking down,
Twirling into just the right twist,
Looking in the mirror, twisting it around.
The funny thing is, yes I can laugh about it,
In a pen I had it bound.
So what is so funny I would write about it?
The pen broke in my hair,
I have ink stuck to my crown.

His wisdom exceeds his years,
His strength allows for tears,
He faces what he fears.

Iíve respected him for years,
Together weíve cried many tears,
Together we face our fears.

Mighty strength, Truth forsaken once again.
Spirit gasps at sea, salty, crashing within.
Soul carrying spirit, submerged as before,
Flailing then clutching oar, gasping towards shore.
Rock ĎNeath seaís sand, literal Truth ties secure,
Broken by storm, vesselís repairs to procure.
Searching Truthís path through storms, itís hard seeking stars,
As palm bent at root, fruit too ripe, falling far.
Again seeking sun ĎNeath boughs on frothy shore,
Warming, healing, hoping, for Truthís at spiritís door.

Nothing I fear compares to this fear,
Others I can overcome except this fear.
Except this fear
It makes me tremble
It brings me to my knees
As I begin, I tremble.

No beginning Iíve had compares to this beginning,
Mistakes Iíve made are no comparison to this beginning.
To this beginning
It makes me tremble
It brings me to my knees
Beginning with wisdom, I tremble.

No wisdom Iíve heard compares to this wisdom,
Other wisdom doesnít compare to this wisdom.
This amazing wisdom
It makes me tremble
It brings me to my knees
In fear I begin to trust this wisdom.

Though for a time the hour glass was slow,
So slow, I thought I was dying with out her.
Eleven years into court for her I would go,
Eight of those years I lived without her.
My heart cracked, my pain, It showed.
Now I am together again with her.
Any length is not always the way to go,
The struggle hurt her.
It was the right thing for us, even though
The struggle hurt her.

She chose to succeed.
She’s been down a road that is hard,
She has much she needs,
She’s had a life that’s left her scarred.

She has a good heart.
She’s not perfect, yet she is kind.
She is also smart,
She’s wise and listens, her mind’s bright.

He is also bright.
He’s often misunderstood,
He is my loved knight,
He’s sacrificing, and he’s good.

She loves her best friends.
She’s not had it hard,
She likes to go with the new trends,
She’s never been scarred.

They choose to succeed
They’re not perfect, they rise above.
They ‘oft do good deeds
They are my children, they’re much loved.

They might be songs, I love to sing.
Really they are just silly things.
Theyíre little stories of our lives,
Really theyíre about sacrifice.
These short stories I give to you,
Really were lived, really are true.
They are my songs, I love to sing.

My computer can do a lot.
My computer helps me through.

Rocking Chair Days

Humbling crumbling walls,
One or two painful, quick calls.
Finally screaming the pain,
Relief, at ease once again.

At first simply carpooling,
Such a humble beginning.
Laughing, pampers in the back seat
Going to Chinese to eat.

Holidays to remember,
Relating family members.
Loving one anotherís kids.
Letters and presents to give.

Talking on the cell for hours,
Sharing time, time that was ours.
For almost five years in sync,
Barbequing, praying, blink.

Incomprehensible dark,
Bitterness, strife harsh remarks.
Longing, looking at the phone,
Feeling remorse all alone.

Reunited once again,
I am so grateful for my friend.
We made a promise I wish to keep,
That when we age our promise we would keep.

Rocking chair days are now here.
Sitting, remembering years.
Laughing, crying, and sharing,
Continuing love, caring.

I hold the velvety petal to my lips,
So soft I can hardly feel sorrow
For its separation from the bloom.
I hear the wind bowing down
To pay respect to my flower
And its lost petal. Nevermore
To be captured again by the rose.

Heart to Heart

My child life I give to you.
My heart I give to you.
My hurts I give to you.
My care I give to you.
My joy I give to you.
My compassion I give to you.
My health I give to you.
My healing I give to you.
My concerns I give to you.
My jewel, my all I give to you.

Things happen, might as well shout!

Give your best in all things
Thanks for the day, and all things
You may as well shout for all things!

Like a waterfall off a cliff
I try to pour what I know,
With little resources.
Through a needleís eye, kneeling down,
Catching a glimpse of possibility,
With a promise so clear.

She helped to heal this heart in me,
Her posted words, helped me see
A part of me I couldnít see.
Her words of wisdom reside in me.

He helped to heal this heart in me,
With encouraging words, now I see
A part of me I couldnít see.
His encouragement it stayed with me.

Youíve helped to heal this heart in me,
With truthful post you help me see
A part of me I couldnít see
Thank you all for freeing me

You held my hand,
so I wouldnít give up,
You helped me stand.

You cheered for me
In any small task
When I would succeed.

You said ďtogether you and I can do this.Ē
To you I say ďtogether you and I can do this.Ē

A History of Love

When I hurt you,
When you hurt me,
When we rejoice together,
When we teach one another,
When our children grow,
When our hearts show,
When we rise above,
Itís our history of love.

When alone at home, I sit.
When no one seems to know.
When none comes with me to sit.
When no where my body goes.

Lonely hours, by myself here.
Lonely, for you to drop by.
Lonely, hoping you were here.
Lonely, wishing, now I cry.

The day comes, so fast the night!
Dreary hours, my blissful plight,
Ever changing, never ending flow.
The hours fly by, and still I know,
The day will come when night alone,
Will keep me safe, in sweet repose.

Hope inspires the best in all.
It gives me grace when I fall.
I was hoping when I came,
To learn more than just your name.
Yet for a time I went away,
Trust is earned day by day.
Thanks for the hope in you I see,
Itís a special healing grace for me.

He is strong

Heís just a young man,
And he is strong.
Heís so young,
A short life thatís been long.
He knows about loyalty,
He has much wisdom,
He wonít accept pity,
And he is strong.
Heís so young,
A short life thatís been long.

For Dorm

He is simply wonderful,
Making this heart sing.
He is gently incredible,
Making my step a gentle spring.
He is kind and loved by all,
Making many feel a warmth.
He is encouraging to all,
Making a way for human growth.

To hurt the soul on the run.
Others through carelessness,
Criticize through ignorance.
I saw your post and I knew,
Past the hurt thereís more to you.

Listen to the sound, of the wind blown moon.
Hear it calling earth, with a universal tune.
Showing spanning sea, with its crimson tide,
Or the flow of life, with an ever ebbing ride.
Listen to the sound, of the raging sun.
Power calls the earth, ever on the run
Holding on for life, never again to drift.
Heat and warmth to savor, a universal gift.

A tune melodic, friendship sweet.

When we hear that melody,
Days we find the perfect key,
Are days our friendship is so sweet.

What if I were an angel,
Would I get to pick my wings?
Would I care at all perchance my wings didnít sing?

What if I were an easel,
Would I get to pick the color?
Would I cry day and night if I was painted with another?

What if I were different?
Would I want to leave this road?
Would I embrace all of me, with joy my full reward?

Song of Mercy

You simply set me free,
With your few words to me,
That really a kind of selfishness,
Would create for me such a mess.
I said ďI want to be like you.Ē
You said ďyou have enough to do.Ē

I thought that to be a success,
I would need a job with fancy dress,
Yet that is not the path for us,
I need to relax and to trust,
That in your kind honesty,
Is a healing message I can trust

Pizza party yeah! My mom will help pay!
Gathering the money, excited friends,
And then,
The principle said “no party for you.”
My daughter told him “that simply won’t do.
The basketball team brings lunch every day,
We want to be treated just the same way!"
“You’ll be expelled from school,” is what he said.
“You’ll go to the council” she said instead.
So the party went on, pizza was had,
“She should be a lawyer,” was all he said.

On Diversity

Heís the one, who helps me sing,
Heís my all and my everything.
Though I accept that some will disagree,
On diversity Iím hoping we can agree.
Those different views give us a chance,
To enjoy our friendship our lives enhanced.

The forum is a community,
Representing great diversity.
Each one brings things that are different,
From many various continents.
We all bring whatever we may have.
It is our truth. Itís our healing salve.

If youíre for it
Or if you not.

Home for holidays,
It was a miracle.
Others deployed
While we ate.

We hugged,
I said come back.
I love you mom

And us.

Now heís gone.

Drunk Driver

Let her live, oh please, momma would plead.
Looking left, then right, and left again,
Looking hard over the hill, straining
To see. To bad, heíd not seen me.
I did not land upon my head,
If I had I would be dead.
The drunk officer flew,
Driving far to fast.
I almost past.
I lived.
Let her live, oh please, momma would plead.

Butterfly Sky

Do you want to lie under the butterfly sky?
Feel the warm grass newly cut, while the sun is high.
The sound of sea gulls, smell the great ocean so strong,
A beautiful place for the monarchs to start from.
The monarchs, orange and black, fill the sky, they fly.
Look! See the sunlight mosaic as they go by?
It lifts body and soul with a wonderstruck sigh.
Come with me, weíll lie under the butterfly sky.

They asked,
They were denied.
They cried,
They werenít comforted.
They tried,
They werenít rewarded.

They gave everything
Only to be misunderstood.
They tried to listen
Only to be admonished.
They tried to sit still
Only to be disciplined.
They tried and they tried
Only to be told ďtry harder.Ē

They asked,
No one could listen anymore.
They cried,
No one would listen anymore.
They tried,
No on would believe in them anymore.
They gave,
And a precious few refused to whither.

Dark Night of the Soul

Gently, Gently, in the night
I cry. Why? I wonder.
Why when victory was in sight.
Have you ever been that close?
Then, it crumbles.
Naysayers talk about choice.
Yet I know I did what I could.
I gave what I had,
I think. Did I do what I should?
I cry gently, my soulís dark night.
I wonder once more,
Then I accept. Healing is in sight.

In my garden.

Flowers fragrant,

In my garden.

I promise Iíll give my best too.
At times your best is wrapped in pain,
I hope to be there till hurt wanes.

Other times it is wrapped in joy.
These are times we can both enjoy,

True Love

When I think of love,
Certain words come to mind.
Loyalty that rises above,
Honesty that remains kind,

Integrity that holds strong,
Honor that canít be corrupted,
Kindness that endures long,
Friendship that isnít destructive,

Commitment that doesnít waver,
Sharing without hurting,
Love comes with some labor,
Hard work, building.

My last word is true.
What does love mean to you?

When across the spanning sea I see,
Another soul looking back at me,
Iím reminded of a simple grace,

The price is such a very small debt.
So although we see across the sea,
Your heart, it seems very clear to me.

I wonder, ďcould I climb at all?Ē

The first few feet donít look to bad
Yet still, I donít know if I can.

Then I ponder its majesty,
Like a kingdom in its glory.

A sweet memory

Off to Disney land we would go,
Handy for when we ran away.
So many rides in our hiding place,
Away from the hitting at home.
Eating divinity expertly made,
Wearing mouse ears, so fun
For two girls on the run.
You know, it was a good thing.
Circumstance was bad, but
Mom and I were bonding.

I would choose mercy for me and you.
Iím not saying that you are bad,

Times will come, when weíll fight and fuss.
All I want is a chance and some courtesy
To accept responsibility, while giving mercy.

My son tried to talk to me today
A cluster of thinking got in the way
He wanted me to look and see

At times Iím aloof, somewhere far off
While he is chattering my ear off
Other times it goes the other way
And I chatter away his dreamy day
Iím thankful, love keeps frustration at bay.

So many times Iíve seen people thrown away.
I only know what I have seen,
On this I have seen plenty.

For the gift of simple joy,
I had to let go of things.
I had to decide,
Stuff, or girls and boy.

For once in my life

Scared, I faced the strife.

For my children bring me joy,
And I realize, I am strong.
I can face discomfort.
Small gift for my girls and boy.

1 of 3 posts on Alaska, where I lived for 11 years.

I thought Alaska was very cold,
Thatís what I think of five below.
Yet it is filled with natural wonder,
Icy blue glaciers, near and yonder.
Skiing on the mountains so high,
Lessons on slopes to keep you alive.
Ice fishing on a very Big Lake,
Bar runs on the lake with out a brake.
Snow mobiles, missing trees, jumping bumps.
Cessna planes for fishing and aerial jumps.
Salmon, Bear, Ptarmigan, Caribou, Moose,
Rabbits and Elk in the yard on the loose.
Cruises from Alaska down to Canada,
Night miracle, Aurora borealis, awe.
I miss Alaska, even the cold,
But please, spare me the five below.

If youíre in Alaska take a look.
From the ocean floor on a hook,
Beer battered, deep fried, supí.

Needing to apologize to a friend.
I feel like I should learn,
But I keep doing and saying
Things that hurt.

And frustration of trying,
Trying and trying so hard
Is mine to bear. While for
The umpteenth time I
Try and find a creative

Way to say sorry.
Sorry I hurt you,
Sorry I embarrassed you,
I really didnít mean to.
It isnít malicious.

Social Anxiety

I won’t go to the market today
Even though there are things we need.
I won’t go to the restaurant today
Even though we would like to eat.

I won’t go shopping today
Even though we all need shoes.
I won’t go to the shoe store
Even though these are old and loose.

I won’t go look for a job today
Even though I need one so I can thrive.
I won’t go to the welfare office
Even though I should so we can survive.

I won’t go because I can’t go in
Even though many think it an excuse.
I won’t go because I can’t go in
Even though my esteem is further reduced.

I can help you with that the heart replies!
Intentions can motivate or drag down.
On the one hand you want to help others.
Nearer to the heart are selfish desires.

And the mind begins to align for you
The multitude of things that you should do.
The hearts beats ever so innocently
While the eye knows best for evírybody.

I have found little good in helping folks.
Often I find people wanting me to
Resolve their mess because they canít or wonít,
Instead of the help making a steady soul.

Through plains of wheat like a rippling sky,
And mountain lakes around curvy miles,
Over rivers swiftly taking treasures to sea,
And freeways that span eight lanes wide,
Across a Trail of Tears where Native Americans cried,
Up a precarious mountain to Flagstaff so high,
Through fall struck houses with their busy rakes,
And snowman building when school is on break,
Iíve been fortunate to see my country, itís alive.

My kids spent the night at church, theyíre away.
The fridge and its treasures are mine alone,
The remote with its drama, is in my control,
No line to the bathroom to brush my teeth,
No fussing between kids who hate to sleep.
No cries ďlook here,Ē accomplishments to share,
No hug and kiss when I put them to bed,
My kids spent the night at church, theyíre away,
You would think I would be happy today.

Faith and love go hand in hand
By effort hearts touch, love expands.
Love enduring takes faith and work.
Decisions to stay and work out the quirks.
With love everything canít go your way,
Though many things will as two find their way.

I love you enough
To die for you.
I love you enough
To live for you.

I love you enough
To do anything for you.
I love you enough
To set boundaries with you.

I love you enough
To lose all worldly goods for you.
I love you the same.

You Are Beautiful

You must believe in beauty to see it
Within you, that is where it lies. Dormant
Only if it is ignored by a choice.
Once tapped into, the true color of life
Will never be bland only, but sprinkled
With the beauty of the world and with you.

Houses filled with love,
Others filled with life,
Some filled with strife.
Houses rising above.

Houses filled with glory,
Others filled hurt,
Some filled with dirt.
Houses writing stories.

Roses with petals so soft,
One by one, I plucked them off.
Each were mine, I held them tight.
They each died for I shared no light.
Rather, each oneís beauty was marred,
By a grip that crushed my petals hard.
And when I opened my hand to see,
I discarded what I had ruined for me

I used to live in Hawaii.
Time there is slow,
Most skin is aglow.
Vacationers with glee
Rent time from the city.
Deep sea fishing
Or deep sea wishing.
Itís beautiful in Hawaii.

Song of Mercy
04-02-09, 05:32 AM
With woven hat and loads of rice
Life in Hawaii was not always nice.
I remember a trip to the mountains,
Walking on a plank over fountains
Hundreds of feet below
If theyíd slipped would go.
Finally, at frog pond, so cold,
Your breath you would hold.
Then off to the slide,
Down the mountain side.
Into the man made chamber,
Filled with water from the river.
Thatís were the rice would go
Woven hat workers made it so.

A muddy rope the only hold,
One hand, now one foot, climb.
Shaking from the effort.
Trying to get to the top
Of the tunnel draped falls.
Ten minutes to get up,
Ten seconds down,
The moss covered slide.

The seagulls bank to the right,
Shore is in sight,
From fishing in the sunlight.
The water is so deep blue.
See how it foams?
Children splashing, calling you.
Tanned bodies everywhere,
All the guys stare.
Bathing suits galore to wear.

Farther up is the burnt grass
Full of stickers.
Bare foot just once in the grass.
Looking down the mile long shore
Hotels galore
Grand things, dot the crystal shore.
And seagulls, bank to the right,
Shore is in sight,
Theyíve been fishing in the light.

Washing over each individually
Bathing us in hues of gold
Warming us, body and soul.

The salty brine and the wind,
I loved the wind whipping my hair.
Full throttle, over the swelling sea,
I loved the crests.
Looking port, racing playful dolphins
I loved the dolphins.
Shadows deep, sharks following the boat,
I loved the adventure of the sea.
Marlin and Mahi Mahi caught on a hook I made,
I love the pacific islands.

High upon a cliff

High above the cliff it sits
Looking down on all,
Empty rooms and tinted glass
Silence echoes through the halls.
Such splendor, such majesty,
So high itís viewed by all.
Yet within the rooms
Loneliness is its only call

The Beauty They Remember

When the beauty of life
Sends out her sweet call,
When the tune is gentle
And heard by all,
Let the reflection they hear be you.

When life comes hard
And hope is abated,
When trials surmount
And their joy is taken,
Let the hope they grasp be you.

When maturity sings with doubt
And childlike faith is drowned,
When disappointments are bitter
And the winter winds surmount,
Let the beauty they remember be you.

Walking down the lonely path
My future I could not see
Then with radiance so bright
A ray of light fell on me.

This heart within me groans
As my flower plucked I see
Though young, still on the knee
It was snatched away from me.
Though trials it brought
With tears I sought
An answer there could not be
For when so young
Life has barely begun
My flower belonged to me.

Sitting in the quite, I love the early morning hours.
Waiting for inspiration as I use the quite
To engage my love, my written love.

Theyíll all be up soon, oatmeal with complaints.
They will eat and rinse and play games
While momma, waits for her love

So supportive these perceptive children of mine
They ask, what did you write today momma?
I read them a poem I hope they love.

Rats, heís got me in a headlock.

Good thing Heís got a tough arm!
My free paw, yes, thatís the key,
To getting this boy off of me!
They smile, and they end on a hug.

Slowly, I release his hand
It is hard to do
It is hard to do

Make Your Choices Now

Child, oh child, lover of life,
Free to be anything you desire.
Not caught up in grownup strife,
Fan the flame of your internal fire.
With games and play,
With love and laughter
Learn your way,
Believe in what you are after.
Now is time for sharing with friends,
Choose wisely what you do,
Keep in mind childhood has an end,
Though young it will ever affect .

Live While Youíre Alive

A fleeting glimpse,
Peripheral, barely there,
Coming, eventually to all humans,
Is this thing we will share.

Now we may not look,
Blinded by the shadowed day.
Yet it will not last, even if we wonít see,
Someday, in death we will lay.

Song of Mercy
04-07-09, 04:32 AM
Have you ever been overwhelmed?
It just seems at times life hammers away.
Like hitting a brick wall,
Like trying to keep life at bay,
As you hammer away at the bricks
Yet they wonít fall, they must be scaled.
For in the drifting flurries and the cold,
Sometimes it is hard to get a firm hold,
So I hammer away at this wall,
This wall around my mind that wonít fall.

Because I know itís there.

Panic Attack

Beat, beat, beat,
As sweat trickles down,

Shaking like leaves in a wind
This fear the mind rends.

Perfect and Alone

In the cabinet her place she took
Feeling grand with haughty looks.
In the box she waited to play,
She was soiled, yet loved each day.
Still, she wanted her sisterís perfect clothes.
In the cabinet, alone was her twin.
A doll that hurt yet felt superior within.
In the box, at her sister she would look,
And then for play, out she was took.
She realized she had the better thing.

I couldnít speak for two weeks
His verbal abuse was too much for me
I was told it was love, which was a lie
So my voice locked, for fear of reprise
In a whisper to my mom I could talk
Out loud no words would come out
In revenge to me, he would clout
Yet he never killed this spirit
He never took me all the way down
After two weeks I could speak aloud
After thirty years I still speak out loud

A Lesson in Humility

Two trees stood together,
Neither liked the other.

On tree tall with majesty
The other tiny, a little tree

In time majestic took her fall
To build a house with a hall

The young tree stood locked in place
Humbled by her future fate.

The morning dawns, the sun rises and yet,
The night is all I see screaming at my eyes.
The choice is mine; Iím an eagle I will fly.
The truth of choice sings, her song is free.

I eat that which feeds the day, I choose and yet,
I still hear the night, notes screaming in my eyes.
I will work for my freedom, renewed I will fly,
I hear dawns rising flames, new birth, I am free

Sharing Our Worth

A poem is but a vessel,
An expression I long to share.
Hopefully it shows things special,
Which were not known before.

Other times this wordy vessel,
Holds knowledge we all share.
Yet trusting ourselves is special,
Easing doubts we felt before.

This forum is our vessel,
Pain and triumphs here we share.
Each person, you, is special.
If you didnít know before.

Under the sap drenched tree
She brought her own light
So the sap she could see.

Freely, changed into early dawn
She did not need her light again.

I do not Walk Alone
Dedicated to each one of you

For twenty long years I was alone.
I was responsible for four others.
My family was hurt and hated me.
My problems though were invisible.
With hatred and relief they left.
With my pain, that none could see
I walked alone. It was then you came.
Do you know that you saved me?
For twenty long years I was alone.
Not anymore though, I found you
And I know, I do not walk alone.

What do Others Bring to your Life?

What do others bring to your life
Do they use you and bring tears?
Do they abuse you causing fears?
Do they refill your heart with joy?

What do friends bring to your life?
Do they destroy what youíve built?
Do they fill your heart with filth?
Do they stand beside you in love?

What does family bring to your life?
Do they hurt and misunderstand you?
Do they wonder what they should do?
Do they accept with unconditional love?

What do you bring into your life?
Do you choose they who use?
Do you allow yourself to be used?
Do you and love and believe in you?

We are a Family

In my life is a Warrior Queen,
She is righteous and good,
She is. frankly misunderstood,
She faced the brunt of my worst.

In my life is a Raven,
She is soft and gentle,
She is honest and true,
She had the worst in life.

In my life is Beloved Knight,
He went without food for us,
He checked the dumpster foods dates
He has regained what he gave.

In my life is a Sweet Angel,
She is like Warrior Queen,
She is stern, not mean,
She bears the trial of life.

In my life is an Over Comer,
She watched as the above grew,
She knows who they are,
She is blessed, this I know.

Come to the Healing Place

Tell my heart where your pain begins.
We can bring your pain to an end.
Blood pumping through veins
Is not the heart I mean.

Tell me friend where we can begin,
To ease the hurt you carry within.
Flesh cuts flesh, trying to heal
The hurt you have known.

You are my friend, I love you so,
With trust and belief I know
Your heart can be healed.

In the quite times
When all lights go out,
When assailed with doubt
I am with you still.

In the quite morn,
In busy noon day,
Lifeís demanding fray,
I am with you still.

When life seems too much,
Praying yields nothing
Flower with bee sting
I am with you still.

When days gone, night comes.
Life didnít go your way,
Now you see bright day,
I am with you still.

Your hand I will take.
Light beheld with eyes
In rest body lies,
I am with you still.

Off in the distance I see a light,
Closer it comes and closer yet,
Now engulfing me, so bright.
Clearly I can see nature abounding
With love for all, Giraffe so tall,
And me so small.

I found you in the light
And together we walk.
It is healing, this togetherness,
As we find the nurturing we need
To move forward with our lives.

Grounded for two weeks.
Growing is wonderful,
Grief filled too.
Going to a friends,
Getting into trouble.

Sisters at times want to help.
Sharing trouble on purpose,
She got her wish.

Her Ebbing Strength

There was shelter to be found,
Not perfect or beautiful,
The shelter was mine alone.

Stretching to the horizon

Four ladies and one young man,
This is my circle of friends.
We have survived eight years
Of ups and downs. Mess ups
And each others joys. Honestly,
I used to wonder how? How
Could I have so much love
In my life? Then one day the
Answer came. We respect the
Narrow scope of our boundaries,
Which stretch to the horizon.

Three years of hostility
Ended in her death.

What a joy it would be if together
We could always be there for one another,
Perhaps that is to lofty a goal,
It is this we both know.
Yet if I fall please give me a hand,
And if you fall, I will help you stand.
Life is not meant to be traveled alone.
I know, that is how my journey went for years,
And now youíre here.
I am grateful.

Self-love is a key to true growth
You and I are striving for.
Self-love is in the heart of me and you,
You will not find it in the mind.
Self-love may start as a decision
You have to choose everyday.
Self-love takes time to grow,
You have to wait for it to show.
Self-love really is in the heart
If you have decided, that’s your start.

Oh the soul can be painful! You canít hide,
In it lays your truth, in it lays your truth.
Under the shelter of love, it can be healed.
In it resides your truth, in it resides your truth.
Love of self, love of others, a love that wonít yield.
In it you will find the truth, search, look, be healed.

So many things that we say
Sometimes esteem gets in the way.
When we speak out we hope all agree
However we try that cannot always be.
So I have a few words to share with you,
Some you have heard some will be new.
Tolerance of others thoughts opens the way,
To accepting others and what they say.
I know more words that are good if youíll hear
Diversity you will find here, youíre a part of that too.
Respect is my last word, it binds the others and me and you.

And navigating the forums was hard for you?

Because we have posted a lot.

Will I ever feel the heat of my early passion?
Iím not sure I want to. It was a raging fire
That burned my tender sensibilities.

Establishes roots, a history of love to look back on.
This I can hold on to, this I can believe.

Letting go of all strife
What if I refuse to learn and grow?
Give up? No! This is my one life.

It was just the help I was looking for.

Believe Once Again

Having a child with ADHD is a challenge.
With sunny and bright comes fussing and strife.
Being a parent with ADHD is a challenge.
Solitude is great but it is not real life.
This forum helps manage the challenge.
Jump in and find the joy of relief.
Your not alone, lets share our challenges.
Lets share the gift and again believe.

Learning to praise

You gave mom praise today,
It was good and I almost cried.
I was going to let you pay,
For my choice that wasnít wise.
Instead I let you go and play.
It was right and I nearly cried,
When you saw and then you praised.

Healing Pain

My mind hurts and my head is in pain,
They say it hurts to heal
This isnít what I thought I would feel
This mind needs to heal
This healing of the mind is great gain.

I am alive and I am free.
In this freedom I am me.
In truth, I was always free.
In a prison, now I am me,
Just who I wanted to be.

I Believe

When you post I can share.
When Iím in pain I can share.
When I have joy I can share.
When I mess up, I can share.
When I heal inside I can share.
When I am a wreck, I can share.
When I learn to trust, I can share.
When you reply, I believe I can share.

Scared for Angel

Little Angel, where are you?
Aaangeel, can you hear me?
You said, mom I will obey,
So out you went to play,
Now my little Angel your late.
We live in a city that is large,
Mom is scared, please come.
Don't be worried, don't run.
You broke the rules, true,
There will be correction for you.
I can't let you do all things,
You are to young, please come.
Angel! There you are!
No heartfelt scars?
You scared me half to death!
Go strait to your room!
I will be there when I'm calm.
Did you enjoy your day?
Um, no, you can't go play.
Angel, where are you?
Angel can you hear me?

Loveís Hypocrisy

The bow was knotted so prettily
Atop her hair it sat
Dressed up in her finery
On a pew she sat.
In the front her family poised in a row

In the back her family hidden in a row
On a pew she sat
Dressed up in her sisters dress
Atop her hair it sat
The simple ribbon tied so prettily.

I learn, I heal, I care

When I am in pain you care.
With your love and wisdom,
Your post shows that youíre there.
I learn that to you I can come,
You will say what I need to hear.
With your experience I become
Hopeful. I learn, I heal, I care.

Friendship, like the sea at ease,
Can be refreshing, a gentle breeze.
Friendship, like the sea in storm,
Can rip at you and taste forlorn.
Even so, there is nothing above,
The tide of friendshipís love.

Choosing to Risk

I have loved like most,
I have loved my best.
I have lost like all,
I have lost it all.
I have chosen.
I will love.

I Hope, Then I Try

I hope I will dream.
I try, and then believe.
I hope I can succeed.

I hope, giving it all.
I try hard and I work.
I hope, even if I fall.

I hope if belief rends.
I try, and if I do fail,
I hope, I dream again.

I am truly amazed.
You shine in your honesty.

I Believe

When I look to the horizon,
What do I believe I see?
I see the sea of possibility.

Through valleys in the deep,
Over mounts, lining the sky,
I see potential and I believe.

They are my Gifts

Being a mom is hard sometimes.
I want to be the best, and yet,
I fail to cross that infinite line.

When I think of the passed years,
All the times missed, lost bliss,
I would cry, but Iím out of tears.

I have often thought what if?
Yet I will love and instill belief,
Itís my best; I give it to my gifts.

In the beginning was belief.
I read many of your words,
And was sure it was true.
Yet I did have a doubt.

I wondered what I was about.
Was I seeking legal drugs
Which were prescribed?
In the end I doubted.

Was I just seeing a route?
I needed a good doctor.
One who would hear.
For all had doubts.

I had to know for sure.
With a determination,
I found a specialist.
He didn't doubt.

Now with belief I come,
To a place of wisdom.
I urge you to seek,
Ending doubt.

Even with my medicine

Cleaning is such a chore.
Washing my dirty walls,
Scrubbing up each floor.
Cleaning every decision,
Washing all my choices,
Scrubbing all my habits.

What can I do for you today?

I have personal need to be met,
I want to put aside self, and yet,
It is important, I cannot neglect,
This heart of mine, lest I forget,
That I love giving to your need.

All of our hearts are healing so,
We can each help another grow,
We each hope that all will find,
The support of this community
Is kind, each one of us in unity.

In the Hights

In the heights
I see far away.
I rejoice again
In the heights,
Though far away.

Is dreaming vain?
Some say yes,
Some say no.
Is dreaming vain,
Though far away?

With my friends
I see, here and now,
And I will rejoice
To the heights,
Though far away.

Shut In

Lonely calls the night,
Black and tarry, no stars in sight,
So lonely calls the night.

Lonely calls the day,
Peering, beginning to have hope,
So lonely calls the day.

Lonely calls the morn,
Dew drenched, new start, no fear,
So joyful calls the morn.

Sometimes shadows are hard to see.
When they fall on you or me
It seems they are light that is dusk.
And yet, our shadows are a must.
How can we know the light,
If we do not accept the night?

I see upon a cliff, a mansion beautiful.
It sits so profoundly upon its steady
Granite ledge. I donít go inside,
For I am afraid.
I donítí know who lives here.
I would knock, but they are away.
I look from the cliff to the sea.
It sparkles at me as I wink into the sun.
I look at the shore and I see,
One lone palm, bent at the root.
It stands tall, not embittered
By the storms it has weathered.
Still strong, still a shelter,
For those who seek its refuge.

Two Weeks Alone

Scarred and confused.
Where is she?
To tell anyone I refuse.
Did she forget me?
I havenít seen her for so long.
Iím so scarred.
My mom left, sheís gone.
I sit in her closet.
No one in the morning,
I smell her perfume.
No one to get me going,
I long for her.
No keeper in the night shift,
I hate her.
Sheís come back with gifts.
I no longer believe in her.

The Sweetest Fruit

Patience is a fruit
That is found deep
In the tree of growth.

Look for the fruit
In hard to reach places
For that is where it lies.

I saw today my enemy
She came in the form
Of a friend to me
Then when my
Heart unlocked
In the middle
Of the night
She took my stock.

Home School

All at once I thought
It would be easy and hard,
All at once I learned
It is both easy and hard,
All at once they rejoiced
It was such great relief,
All at once they could read.,
It was a miracle to me.

Four Aís and 1 b, what will I do?
Why did you get a b?
That is unacceptable to me.
I tried my best, are you proud?
When you get Bís? No.

Mom, they are talking fellowship!
What does that mean?
Itís an opportunity for me.
What will I have to pay?
Only belief, thatís all I need.

I am a big girl now, yet,
I hold on to little girl hurts.
I wonít say sorry
It would help mom, I hurt.
Get over it.

Mommy, do I sing pretty?
No you do not.
Mommy do you like my picture?
Would you put it on the fridge?
No I will not.
Mom, I made the volley ball team.
Mom, come home, I need to go.
After one more drink.
Mom, I found new friends,
They accept me without condition.
Thatís nice honey.
We smoke and do drugs always,
The oblivion carries us away.
Honey, do what you will.

My tools,

Talking to you helps,
Medical advice is good,
Coaching is valuable,
Strategies we share,
Meds as an aid to the rest,
Most of all,
The warmth of acceptance,
This is what I need.
What do you need?
