Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security – John Allen Paulos.

People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved, and people are being used.

The geat blessing of mankind are within us and within our reach; but we shut our eyes, and like people in the dark, we fall foul upon the very thing we search for, without finding it.
Seneca (7 B.C. - 65 A.D.)

The Blackened Soul

As I sit looking out the window of my blackened soul. I see the light of the day outside. Reaching to touch it. To feel the warmth of the day from the coldness of the darkness. Wishing for my freedom. The freedom to feel the happiness that eludes me. Where is the sun shine to fill my soul with happiness. To fill it with love. To fill the void I feel. Where is...

With Mother... on her day... with love... A poem

With a smile as bright as the golden sun rise you would wake me with love. With the warm hugs of love that held the sweet smell of honeysuckle you warmed my heart. With the soft loving kisses of the boo boos that came along to take the pain away. With the fun times and the sad times that came along. With the ups and the downs though out the years. With the love no other could show...

As the night starts and the darkness comes over me, I look out into the darkness of the shadows, only see the shell of what once was. The hurt of being betrayed, the anger of being hurt, the sorrow that comes from the anger,  all tearing at me - trying to consume me. When will it all fade away? Why is the loneliness of a darkened soul all I feel? Feeling the burning of...

Birthday Wishes

As the Sunset on yet another year’s passing, As it slowly fades into the darkness of the past. A new day begins as the sun rise on a new beginning, The oldness of days past sheds away from you. The feeling of newness washes over you, The hope of a brighter tomorrow shimmers in your eyes. You start the journey down the uncertain path of new beginnings, As you heading for what...

Good Night

As the darkness encompasses me I turn into a ghostly shadow of what was once.  I fade away to a nothingness as my eyes close. I go to my slumber that leads me to dreams of what could be.  I must bid Au revoir to days gone by.  The lights fade and sleep prevails to the night.  I bid you all sweet and peaceful dreams. ...

The wish of a peaceful night

Oh peaceful sleep do not evade me  for The Darkness of the night surrounds Only the sounds of the night for the ears to hear Closing my eyes to the restful night let not the dreams tear me asunder Keeping the night terrors at bay Let the slumber come with silent night for the dawns early light come with the first break of dawns light. Early wake with morning vigor of...

The Darkness

As I disappear in to the darkness. The cold surrounds me, The bitterness sets in The light becomes dim The day is gone The night has come The emptiness swallows me whole The darkness fill me in The pain of the day Fades way to the cold of the night Lay there in the darkness begging for sleep Nay sleep never comes I toss and I turn I close my eyes to the night I...

Sister or Angel….?

She always has love and a hug. She always has caring and a kind word. She always has a hand to hold when I’m down. She is there even when we are apart. She knows when I am down and hurt. She knows when I am up and happy. When she is down she still loves me. When she is up she still loves me. She wraps here wings of protection around me. She always has a kind word to help my heart. She...

The Mysteries of Love

As the night falls The darkness comes The bitter coldness creeping in The light of love holding it back  The feeling of warmth surrounding in The path is lit for the journey down the long road The way ahead is uncertain The love is strong and will grow They to grow strong with each other The new day is next filled with mystery and wonder What will it hold where will it go ...

Into the sunset

Into the sunset As the scarlet sun sets in the west a cowboy takes his last ride. As he travels off into that sunset and fades into the horizon as just a memory. You awake to the rising golden sun to the east. You see that a new day has begun. The campfire is cold and the cowboy’s coffee still sitting there. You know that he has been here. You know that he was watching...
