The Microphone

So many voices scream and shout Everyone wants to be heard But no one can hear Because we cancel each other out Voices with no words So many voices misunderstood Everyone needs to speak But no one can hear If only they could They think silence makes them weak So many voices loud and proud…

The Start of Something Great

I’m a big supporter of Mondays. Well,  more than your average person anyway. Why is that? It’s a brand spanking new day! That’s something to be echoed about right? I’d say so. Sadly, I see the opposite in people. Most of the time I run into people who take Mondays for granted. Instead of being…

Quick Note

From My Window

Someone just told me “I see you write poetry” But I haven’t in awhile So I thought I would Grace the poetry scene Once again “Well, where have you been?” Watching the world from my window Living life on the go Seeing all that needs to change Praying this world doesn’t stay the same Reading…

Holiday Cheer

Thanksgiving

I think the above picture describes Thanksgiving accurately. Let us all thank God for our blessings. Not only today, but throughout the year. We have so much to be thankful for, and when we are thankful it makes life seem a little less stressful. So, hug someone, tell them you love them, and say thank…

Precious Moments

A moment in time A moment of clarity A moment of parity A moment of peace A moment of silence Not draped in violence Rather serene respect For all to see A moment of joy A moment of laughter And cordial chatter Amongst strangers and family What are these moments that bring us together Help…

Word Play

Have you heard? Have you heard these words so fresh? They mesh in context A vernacular conquest To string together Words that never Belong with each other Whatsoever This is word play. What did you say? Oy vey! It’s not Atin-lay  Ig-pay Which way Are you going this, hey? No comprende? Forse in Italiano Comprano…

Beautiful Sounds
