Fears, like ghosts only haunt our hearts
And cause us strife when we live
In the shadows –trapped between
What is wrong and what is right.
We close our doors tightly and turn out all the lights.
We fear monsters might be knocking on the other side —
Or maybe hate and scorn and a life full of hopeless plight.
Maybe, or maybe it’s a life full of happiness and delight from which you hide.
But instead you stare at the hands on the clock,
And never open that door,
Never answer that knock.
Life, lived like that, abandons all hope in this world for more.
So, still your frantic heart from imaginary fights.
Stop hiding behind your iron door.
Hope. It always abides in the fresh air and truths bright light.
Just breath deep and calm your troubled mind, then, throw open your door.

I wish more for you than health, happiness, and a wonderful Thanksgiving day. I wish for you, something better.

No, It’s Not” By Mary Oliver Sometimes …

The moon, I think she has a deep and sultry whiskey laugh, With kindly wickedness flirting about each throaty note. I think she spends her secret days scaling Life’s innumerable steep mountain cliffs. And her twilight hours gazing over vast oceans, While casting off her diamond thoughts. And over the broad plains, she steals her …
This post has crashed, burned, and died a fiery death at least twenty times. So, I am just going to let it rest in peace. But I promised myself, and the world that I would post my goals today. However, I wanted to tie everything up in a neat little package, put a ribbon around …
I was having lunch in a local restaurant last week. As I ate I was overhearing a conversation between two men in their early twenties who worked there. During the conversation one of the guys says; “Hey, if you’re really serious about getting into shape, we can use that offer R— gave us for a …
Never mistake my Velvet skin, curvaceous Thighs, tender heart, And delicate sighs as Proof of weakness Inherent. All these soft and Gentle signs belie A greater strength Living deep inside. I can be stretched, I can be strained, I can be wrenched In pain. Yet I remain unbroken. Bruises on my hips, Bloodied hands all …
I want a Parfum life! I want to whirl like a Dervish! I want to breathe in deeply the spicy Floral scents of love in full bright light! I won’t live off diluted fumes! I won’t dance twisted heartbreak jigs! I won’t hold my burning breath In the dank acrid shadows of strife! I want …
