Old And Gray

Most people may not believe when I say

That I want to grow old with hair of silvery gray.

Wrinkles may not make me look fair

But that’s something I really don’t care.

I see wrinkles as proof of the life I’ve lived and the struggles I’ve overcome

Proof I did my best, I didn’t give up, didn’t succumb.

My wrinkly skin would serve as maps of my adventures

And perhaps, as well as my misadventures.

Oh to be old with hair of silvery gray,

To reach that age, is what I pray.

The Sun Is Set

I look up and I see up ahead

The sun is burning brightly orange and red

A hint of purple and blue

Yes, I see those colors too.

Beyond the horizon, the sun is leaving

But its beauty still radiating

Cooler breeze is now blowing

As the sun is slowly setting.

Rabbit Hole

Down I go

Spinning

Spiralling

Tumbling

Falling

With no idea of what lies ahead, this will be an adventure.

Days of Childhood

I remember….

When days were longer and the sun wasn’t as hot

Looking forward to summer and playing all day long

Danced and played in the rain

Running around, sweaty but with a huge smile on my face

Climb trees, scraped my knees

Flew a kite, learned how to ride a bike

Roller blading and falling and getting back up to try again

Yes, I remember those wonderful days

Motivated

I’m done wishing, I need to act.

Got to get myself back on track.

Got to stand up and start somewhere

Or else I’ll be stuck, I’ll be going nowhere.

If not now then I may not do it ever

Got to get a move on and never say never.

It’ll be hard, and that’s for sure

But I know what I must do, I must endure.

I’m done wishing and here’s my first act

To get myself back on track.

To The Hearts…

That ache

That break

That still and keeps on loving

That keeps on hoping

That cried

Whose love was denied.

Cheers to the hearts that keep on mending

That continues to give joy that’s never ending.

Defeated

Down and lost

You feel like quitting.

I see your pain, though you hide it.

Yet even in moments when everyone lost hope on you

You persevere

Move on

And learn.

Every moment of sadness

You reach for that glimpse of glory.

You are the best when you are defeated

Because it is in those moments, you show that you can still shine.

Surrender

I put my hands up

I raise it high

I’m letting go

I’m letting it all fall according to Your will

I surrender

Get Out

I’m in that place…of worry and woe again

I need to get of here

Help me get out of here

War

The ground shook

The sky turned black

The sound is deafening.

Each night we pray

To live another day

And each day we try to dodge the bullets.

They drop their bombs

And when the smoke clears

The stench of death lingers in the air.
