Poem: And You Want Something from Me

Poem: And You Want Something from Me

How can it be? Someone asking a favor of me? Where was that someone when I needed a helping hand, a consoling ear? How can that be? Someone wanting something from me. Never mind my bleeding heart. My kindness is always forthcoming, but never seems reciprocated. What happened to love your fellow man? What happened […]

Poem: Bad Credit

Poem: Bad Credit

Credit card offers to the young and unsuspecting. People with limited resources take advantage of the plastic disaster. When it is time to pay, they realize there is no way. When they were without credit, they were told they needed credit. Seven to ten years in their credit profile. Sinking in a sea of debt. […]

Poem: Luck Runs Out

Poem: Luck Runs Out

Tell a lie. Cheat. Get away with a bad deed. In the short run, all is good. Eventually, luck runs out. Things are found out and life can result in turmoil. Nothing lasts forever and all must come to an end.

Statistics say, single parents struggle with poverty, live a life of immorality, receive government handouts, are the cause of high taxes, cannot effectively raise children by themselves, generate generations of illegitimate children, who steal, murder, and cheat.

No money saved up. No stocks or bonds. No rich relative to call upon. Miss a paycheck. Lose a job. Bills continue to go on. With no help, with no security, you are a step away from poverty.

Poem: Behind Closed Doors

No one knows another’s woes. For what happens behind closed doors, remains behind closed doors. Sometimes, the pain is so unbearable that the heart cries when the mouth can’t. Help is needed to soothe the pain, to help the heart, and to console the mind.    

Poem: Playing Games

Life is full of people, who relish in playing games. These are not games for entertainment or fun, but games affecting life. They hurt the people, who they proclaim to love. They string them along and drop the ball when anticipation is high. They have no regard for feelings. They are out to satisfy their […]

Poem: The Scar

Life presents up with choices. Choices of love. Choices of friends. Choices of living. I made a choice to love a man, who did not love me. Instead, he hurt me. The pain in my mind will forever be. He left my with a scar, which is visible physically and mentally. Every time I am […]

Poem: Better Apart Than Together

People as different as night and day are better apart than together. It is like trying to mix oil and water, which can never be. Sometimes, fantasies are better than reality. People hope and dream for a match made in heaven, but sometimes it does not happen. Frustration grow, tempers escalate, and time is wasted […]

Poem: Swimming in the Sea of Regret

That one moment, that one circumstance, that one decision that seems to haunt you. You try to go on but regret grabs you by the collar and commands you to listen. It chokes you within inches of your last breath. It tricks you into doubting your decision making. Regret is a powerful force that can […]
