• Time

    Time.
    Enjoy it while you can.
    Take that special someone by the hand,
    And tell them you love them,
    While you still can.
    Don’t let go
    Of what you hold dear.
    Make it right
    and eliminate your […]

  • Don’t Hold Back

    Scared.
    Fear.
    I can’t do this
    Because of this
    I can’t do this
    Because of that
    Mind just
    Stop!
    Don’t hold me back.
    Take the bull by the horns
    And ride through
    Barreling down
    Every […]

  • Hold My Head High
     
    I hold my head high,
    To the beat,
    Of my own drum.

    I hold my head high,
    To the beat,
    Of my own heart.

    I hold my head high,
    To the beat,
    Of each step.

    I hold my head high,
    To […]

  • Day 6…one of the challenges I participated in yesterday challenged us to write a poem about Lemons without using the words Lemon, yellow, round, citrus, tart, juicy, peel, and sour.  So…i […]

  • One of my challenges the other day was to write a poem at any length but there could only be 14 syllables in each line.

    Day, with […]

  • All I Want
     
    All I want,
    Is a gentle rain,
    Cascading on
    A spring day.

    With the perfect guy,
    By my side,
    Holding on tight
    As we dance through the night.

  • Spring time is here

    And it’s time to cheer

    Ringing bells for all to hear.

    And yet, there’s something white,

    Hailing from the grey up in the sky.

  • Break Through

    Wind.
    Quiet,
    But strong.
    With the strength of
    A weight lifter
    It can hold you back
    And force you to quit.
    But you can’t.
    You can’t quit.
    Cause if you quit
    Then nothing you want
    Will […]

  • Work!
    Push!
    Do this!
    do that! 
    All these orders make me go insane,
    make me stress
    make me weak. 
    But I hear that sound
    as I begin to calm down. 
    And the work begins to fade
    like a distant ocean wave.  […]

  • Balancing Act

    Fear strikes.
    I got the news today.
    Time freezes,
    I can’t go back.
    I walk the line
    Lean left, no turn right.
    It’s a balancing act,
    I can’t go back.
    A balancing act,
    I just can’t go […]

  • The decisions I’ve made,
    Have set my life for today.
    The decisions I make today,
    Are mine for the final say.
    I can’t escape
    The poor choices I’ve made,
    I can only embrace
    And throw it all away.
    I can take […]

  • Dreams

    Dreams.
    A mystery.
    A desire.
    A lie.

    Dreams.
    They haunt.
    They wish.
    Wanting to live.

    Dreams.
    Want to escape.
    To explore the world.
    To create a home.

    Dreams.
    Want to come true.
    For me […]

  • The Fateful Day

    You made me laugh,
    Made me smile.
    Never made me cry.
    Never wanted to say good-bye.

    You were always there
    When I needed a friend.
    Needing push or shove,
    I turned to you.

    Leaving you […]

  • Ok…so for Day 15 one of the challenges I am following said to post a poem written by someone else that you love for any reason at all.

     

    So…I received a book of poems from one of my Aunts for my 21st […]

  • I had to write a response poem to what I posted yesterday.
    Choc-o-holic

    A choc-o-holic
    Is what I am
    From when I rise
    Till I rest my head.
    It’s been this way
    Since my wee toddler days
    Always there
    Until […]

  • …Hello
     
    Never seen you before,
    Never knew your existence,
    Appearing from nowhere,
    …Hello.

    Cute smile,
    Cute face,
    Charming personality,
    …Hello.

    Where have you been,
    Never seen you before,
    Appearing […]

  • Dance?
     
    No voices.
    No drama.
    It can’t be controlled.
    Sometimes, can’t even be taught.

    You can’t hold it in your hand
    Although you wish you can.
    It never leaves one reaction
    And never doesn’t leave an […]

  • Never Plan Ahead

    You know life,
    It’s like a movie.
    Every day,
    A new act,
    Every hour,
    A new scene.
    You try and plan,
    But you can’t plan ahead.
    Each act, a change,
    Each scene, a new script.
    Live in the […]
