*note - this is a work in progress. just sharing what i have so far*

can you see the broken-hearted?
can you hear their desperate plea
begging God to send them someone
who will care about their needs?
through the wind and stormy weather,
there's no shelter they can find -
they think love will never find them;
would you care to spare your time?

here i am, Lord;
send me.
open my eyes,
make me see -
the lost and the hurting,
left with no prayer;
send me to help them
and show them you care.

doctors tend the sick and needy,
nurses always on the call,
policemen and firefighters;
people who've given their all.
do they turn their backs upon those
they have sworn to serve and help?
why should we,...

my life seemed so happy. everything was swell.
i didn't realize how much i really was in hell.
but then the dream came and took it all away.
i'm stuck thinking how life would be different today
if he hadn't broke my heart, if i'd never seen your smile.
the pain i feel won't go away for a very long while.
the things before come back to me as now i wish for him.
but then i see you waiting and feel guilty for this sin.
all i wanted was to hear you say you'd love me til the end
and you'd fight him to the death for me, again and again.
no words from you is what i got, you went to bed to sleep.
now in the morning i'll be gone; and you won't even weep.
goodbye cruel world, i bid adieu to this stra...

from the moment i found out, i knew something was wrong
you were different from your sisters with no doubt
the doctor kept close tabs on you to make sure you were good
but even this did not stop God's original plan

they said you were nine weeks, but they couldn't find you there
the doctor agreed things were amiss
after a week of taking tests and calling the doctor back and forth,
your time had come before your first breath

i hadn't gotten sick, but my tummy ached with stretching
my body was preparing as your house
i had a funny feeling that you wouldn't be here long
that i would not meet you on earth

i called the doctor up when it started to change
he said i was okay, that it was normal

Water.
Who takes time to notice it?
There isn't really anything special about it.
It's just there.
If it were gone, who would miss it?
Oh, but you would.
Water is the essence of life.
Your body can't function without it.
Crops do not grow without it.
Fish cannot breathe without it.
Water is healing.
Many who cannot walk on their own feet,
Water Therapy helps them out.
Oceans would be no more.
Water.
It is the simplest of things in the world.
And yet it brings Life and Beauty to All.

"what is it? is it something to fear?
is it the end? or just the beginning?"
these questions, being asked for centuries, have answers.
but what are they? and where can we find them?

so many theories, and yet still no answers.
what is right? what is wrong? what should we believe?
the crazed rantings of ones who died long ago? no.
what hard facts lie before us in truth?

who can fully understand the wonders of this mystery?
the ones we could ask, the ones who know, cannot answer.
the are long gone, and unable to help us.
this conundrum will drive to to you fate.......

I've been hitting writers block lately. I might go through some of my old writings I haven't published yet and share those, maybe it'll inspire me? I will ask forgiveness ahead of time;  if I do share these writings, some of them are close to 20 years old and are from when I was very young and naive lol

My heart bleeds. I weep for humanity.

Whatever happened to the good old days? When kids grew up knowing if they succeeded in school, they could get a job and take care of their family?

When, if there was a problem, you actually sat down and talked about it, instead of ignoring the other person? Everyone had feelings and you were concerned for everyone, not just yourself?

Politicians were politicians, but Americans had a say. If we didn't like it, we kicked them out of office. Now, we hate what the politicians have done to our country, but we've given them so much power it would take a revolution to take it back.

My heart bleeds. I weep for humanity.....

The holidays are supposed to be a happy time.

They aren't for me.

Too many painful memories. Too many reminders of my failures in life.

I want to run away. I want to leave everything behind, take the four most important people with me, get out of the country, and just start over.

But I know that's impossible...

I'm drowning in a sea of despair.

I learned early on that you can't trust anyone; the only person you can rely on is yourself. You hurt me to the very core, and I swore I would never let it happen again.

I know you're a soldier first, and were only doing your duty. I would've done the same thing, as my duty to the Republic is as strong as yours. But I didn't want to forgive you. I wanted to believe you were responsible for what happened, I wanted to blame you. I swore if we ever met face to face, I was going to ensure that you regretted turning your back on me.

Yet here we are. I saw how you treated the men entrusted to your command, and I respected you for it. I watched as you were sen...

Hello, old friends. It's been a while.

When i last wrote, i was in a very dark place and ready to give up. It's been a hell of a ride the last three years; maybe I'll post it later to kind of fill you in later. But I'm back, and on the road to healing. I missed sharing stories with you all, and am glad to be home.

Fighters Never Give Up.

Responsibility and perseverance vs self respect

How do you tell the difference?

In today's age, we are told that you must take care of yourself because if you can't take care of yourself how can you help anyone else?

But when you have a family to worry about, you know that signing up to be a parent meant sacrifice.

But at what point does sacrifice become suicide?

How do you k ow that it's time to suck it up and push on, or time to give up?

I cannot fight any more. I have no more to give. And yet I am caged here like an animal, unable to escape......

I am alone......

What would you do if I changed who I am?
Would you notice? Would you tell me? Would you care?
If everything I normally do suddenly changed,
Would you want me to go back? Would you be there?

When everything I know comes crashing down,
When the world starts changing all around,
What would you do or say if I fell
Into darkness, lost in it's spell....

If I could bring someone back from the dead, it would be my Grandma Betty and my Grandma Williams. I was adopted at birth, so my mother had refused to hold me in the hospital if she was going to have to give me up to someone else two days later. Grandma Betty held me for those two days, forming our strong bond from my first moment in the world. I didn't see Grandma Betty from the time I was born to the time I was six years old, not even a picture. When I remember seeing her for the first time, I picked her out of a room filled with people, knowing instantly who she was. I loved my Grandma very much, and I never really told her that. She died suddenly when I was 14; I hadn't even known she was...

My grandfather grew up on a farm and had a brother named John with whom he got into a lot of trouble with as a child. He tell the tale how their parents wanted to add some chickens to the farm, so they started by ordering 100 baby chicks. Now, Mom and Dad here wanted to go out square dancing one Saturday, and my Grandpa and Great Uncle John were told explicitly not to leave the house and to especially leave the chickens alone. Well, being the young, curious, mischievous minds they were, Grandpa and Uncle John went outside with the intention of making sure the baby chicks were warm enough on the cool spring evening. As they watched the baby chicks play, one little chick flapped its wings and s...

Batman is known for being one of the only superheroes with no actual superpowers. He was just a man doing what he had to do to make the world a better place.

That was Cory Batz. He was just a mere teenager, what good could he domain the world? But he did. He participated as a leader for many kid events I. Our community, and was a leader among his peers. He was known for how he could cheer them up and encourage them when they were feeling down.

He was also a fighter. He was diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma, but he never gave up. He fought a good fight, and 7 months later, a sophomore in high school and merely 16 years old, Cancer killed the Batman.

Always tempting to you am I
Deadly in my simple beauty
Daring you to abandon life itself
Instead of what you know is right
Clearly you want me, I can smell it
The truth is you can't live without me
In reality, life without me is hell
Ominous is the doom I have for you
Never will I let you go

Freedom is a lie
I will never let you taste it again
Go ahead and try to live without me
Hear my words, you will die
Tomorrow if you try to quit
Enchanting you with my spells
Really did you think it would be easy?
Screaming as you take the knife

No! You cannot leave me!
Even you admit you're better with me!
Vanity kicks in as you start to fight me
Eternally I will haunt you, until you die
Racked with pa...

When I got married, I was 9 months pregnant. My firstborn arrived 8 days later. I never got the big wedding is dreamed of as a child. I never got a honeymoon. I never got endless days of time alone with my honey, romantic moments around every corner. I also never got space to figure out what I wanted in life; I knew I wanted a family someday, but I had to drop out of college and never got the chance to decide if I truly wanted to spend the rest of my life with someone. I wanted to make sure we were in love, that was why I got married on my due date.

Please don't take me wrong on this. I love my family very much, and would sacrifice every happiness for the sake of my children. But sometimes ...

When I first met you several months ago, I had no idea that this would happen. You were "Mr. Popular", everyone loved you. I was the awkward one, with no idea where she was going in life. My dreams were just that; fantasies that could never exist. In one embarrassing moment, I broke the ice between us. I never imagined that moment leading to where we are today.

You've become one of my closest friends, someone I can rely on. When I'm having trouble with things in my life, I want to cry on your shoulder. Something about you makes me more relaxed than I've ever been in my entire life.

We had a fun time. It was a wild ride. I enjoyed every amazing moment. But I knew that you would need time, t...

Reason has left me; I can no longer think. Thoughts of you fill my mind; you're my life's missing link.
Your lips against mine in a passionate embrace is all I can see, and the warmth heats my face.
The scenario plays over and over in my head, it seems I am in heaven; I must be dead!
I never could have dreamed you would be mine and yet here I lay in your arms tonight.
Never leave my side, say you'll always be there; this, to you, love, is my pleading prayer......

The Longing

Do you have any idea what you've done to me? I used to be a quiet, patient person. I could control myself if something exciting was going to happen and I had to wait for it.

But now the mere thought of you makes me ache. How I long to be within your arms, stroking your face, pulling your head to meet mine. A passionate kiss, with promises of the deep closeness we will later share.

I used to be able to wait. But with you, waiting is impossible......

Five Memories. Can you guess which one is over the top?

1. When I was 6 years old I was abused by the boys who lived next door. One day while riding on my bike, they chased me into the backyard and what I remember was being pushed into a tree. My dad found me behind the neighbors garage, lying on an old wooden board that had several nails sticking out of it. So either my concussion was bad enough to scramble my memory, or they had tried to kill me and hide the body. To this day we don't know which it is...

2. When my kids were born, I had to have csections. My first child I asked them to knock me out as soon as possible because I am a wuss lol. For my second born, I was determined to stay...

The snow fell harshly upon the cold December ground. I sat in the back seat of the car and stared aimlessly upon the familiar sights around me. The lights of the buildings and storefronts as we entered the city didn't give me a single ounce of joy, no longer able to feel the excitement I once felt upon arrival at our destination. How could I rejoice when I had so many questions plaguing my troubled mind?
                     Why do I have to do this now?
         Why do I have to be so nervous on top of the sorrow and grief I already felt?
               What would she say when she  saw me?
                                    Would I like her?

What a dangerous game we play in life. Climbing to the top of the social ladder vs deciding to give up and stay home, searching for a mate vs playing the field, work yourself to death vs taking time to enjoy the little things.

How do we decide what is worth our time? Whether to commit to life with one singular person, or to have many lovers who fulfill your various needs? Whether to scratch and claw our way through the roof of the company ladder, or take a simple job that you enjoy? Work so much that you can buy everything you ever wanted in life, or take time to be home with a family and make the most with whatever you are given?

So many options in life. How do you choose what to do with...
