AMPLE ROOM TO GROW

There are many who believe there are no angels, But I believe angels walk wherever there is light. When we block the light,  We are deceived by demons who are quick To lead us astray. I make choices, not just to please others, But to prove who I am, and who I want to be. […]

All are determined […]

ONE SIMPLE JOLT!

Totally unexpected, Like a sudden inspiration, There came a spectacular vision, Expanding and growing beyond all comprehension, A simple revelation, A bolt of lightning that shook me to my foundation, All my life I had been waiting for this recognition a jolt, jump starting my imagination taking me out of my doldrums past all the […]

TOO OLD I’m too old for sex…according to my kids. My life is over, I’m on the skids. I’m too old to drive…according to impatient youth. If I object to their speeds, I’m rude and uncouth. What am I too old for? I’m too old for hot foods, cold foods, and maybe all foods. My teeth are gone, but my taste buds are good. I’m too old for women, But can’t I still look? My eyes still work. Does that make me a jerk? I can admire what young men ignore, So what am I too old for? I shouldn’t be hiking, riding any kind of cycle. Exercise might kill me or might make me smile, Might give me reasons to walk a mile. Too old to live, not ready to die, My time is coming and you don’t need to cry. I’m not as young, as smart, as tall, or as slim, My medical conditions are real, not based on whim. I’m not a decoration, a person without a mind, I’m still me, one of a kind. Am I too old to enjoy this earth? Am I without value, without any worth? I am older than yesterday, younger than tomorrow, I’ve faced challenges, deep joys, and sorrow. I’m not too old to love or care, My love doesn’t rely on muscles or hair. My knowledge is not based on flimsy lies. Consider me old but very wise. Am I too old for one more day? Too old to kneel, thank God, and pray? I’m not too old to dream or regret, Or to appreciate the moments I get. The world is traveling at a faster pace But i’m not too old to make it a better place. Tell me your secrets, whether bad or worse, And I’ll still dance with you across the universe. My worth does not rely on my outer shell, I think it’s love, that has served me well. Am I too old to hold you tight? If your heart is empty, I’ll be there tonight. We will discuss all things like this, Then sleep soundly after a kiss.

“Risk Free!”

“Try my love risk free,” She whispered ardently, She said it so earnestly, How could I not believe?   Her eyes left me no doubt, Yet the truth took another route, How could she bring this about, Had she practiced to deceive?   Her lips were moist and sweet, She was mesmerizing clear to her […]

Letting Go

Why am I holding on to life and love, Didn’t I learn my lesson long ago, Didn’t I see this coming right at me, How can I say I didn’t know,   As an infant I clutched my mother’s breast, Feeling secure with nothing to fear, It was there that I learned best, Love made […]

The Teacher

The Teacher She welcomed us into the room, Calling out our names one by one, We filed in, found our desks, And listened until she was done. One friend was here, another there, I waved at each one in turn, But before we could engage in talk, She looked at us with concern. “Take heed, […]
