Choose Wisely

An artist tries to create The expression that will help others see The message from the heart To the world To make the change To make things better To heal or to inspire To express shock Or even disdain But wanting to be heard And known and seen “I AM HERE” Especially now When the quakes of earth Split the ground between us No … Read More Choose Wisely

The Struggle For Peace

It’s an uphill battle Trying to build the bridge Between our thoughts You see it your way I see it mine But it’s all about taking a walk Come over here I’ll come over there Want to see what you see From where you stand Will you please take a look From where I sit Beliefs are built on experience Please let’s not hold … Read More The Struggle For Peace

To the Peacemaker in the Family

‘Dedicated to Bobby S’ You oftentimes are the youngest child Therefore in a larger family No one really listens to your point of view You watch and you listen as the years unfold All that goes on in front of you You try to fill in the gap Since no one asks you to lead the way Hard times come And they are in … Read More To the Peacemaker in the Family

Beyond the Noise

I awaken while it is still quiet Something is shifting in my heart Everyday in limbo Watching the have’s and the have not’s They go at it pointing fingers Those with masks staying inside Driving with them on and the windows up Fear has gripped the hearts of many Others have a different approach Breathing the free air they refuse to wear Something that … Read More Beyond the Noise

Find me in the wind

Trying to harness the wind The power within Just as the water rages And the earth endures Cannot count on things to be still Hang it out to dry But then the rain comes So what is one to do When the peace is interrupted By bad news Things never stay the same But try to find Those who can endure The changes as … Read More Find me in the wind

Ebb and Flow

Have you ever sat by the sea Watched the waves come in and go out Sometimes with such force They feel like a threat What is it that holds them back The sea knows when to come in And when to go out I would call it intuition But that’s impossible So what is it that makes it so The moon and sun The … Read More Ebb and Flow

Refinement in Confinement

In this time of confinement We are forced to be released of our normal routines of escape Our addictions, our anxieties appeased Those outlets we regularly used To escape our troubles and our fears Those crutches we thought we needed forever Have been broken We left home to relieve our stresses Turmoil and pain Of jobs and marriage troubles Of loneliness and self doubt … Read More Refinement in Confinement

These Times They are a Changing

Nothing is the same, all will be made new It was only yesterday we knew what to do But these days they are dragging It’s a tornado with no compass But you will be lifted out of and into The way things will be as we renew Don’t get caught up in the panic and ensue Rather hold your torch up high in the … Read More These Times They are a Changing

Leave the Circus outside the Circle

With every passing decade I learn I grow from the experiences Hardship or Triumph Makes no difference They both produce fruit Because I am watching Observing the actions and responses Feeling my soul deep inside How else to measure the growth But to look into others eyes Hear their words Or lack of them Do they turn to me Or fall away Was it … Read More Leave the Circus outside the Circle

Wonderland Awaits

  I stand back and am amazed By things I do not understand Those who have tread upon paths I have not Who learned lessons I do not know or understand I am willing to see Albeit sometimes It makes me faint I do not know if I can catch up You know so much I am so far behind But I grasp with … Read More Wonderland Awaits

Us and Them?

Us and Them Truly words to make you stop Think about the meaning Shall we stay here in the USA Or is the world the platform To try to understand the dilemma We battle and set to war Everyday a quagmire Each to their own understanding So sad but so true We cannot control the perceptions Nor the responses to Differentials between us Some … Read More Us and Them?

In the Still of the Morning

Ideas awaken the mind Creativity flows in the wee hours Most are sleeping I’m awake Connecting dots Between past and future I am the gateway Here in this present moment I decide what to leave in What should be shed like a skin Past is gone but it teaches Future can be wildly exciting If only I choose right Which way to go Before … Read More In the Still of the Morning
