New Year. New Me?

New Year. New Me?

How many times have you said that?Each year you want to change.Look outside at the trees,You see their leaves?Gone.Now look at the grassDo you see flowers?Gone. In fall the trees are adored,By winter they are forgotten.Why?Because they become naked and exposed.They learn and take what’s neededFrom the leaves and lose them. During this time they [...]

One Wish

One Wish

As I come to you,How many wishes can I make? —No one has ever asked me. Everyday I see males and femalesCome to me with a pennyBut wish for the worldEach time they throw in a penny Their wishes so heavy,It instantly sinks.If they would listen, I would tell them to wait before it falls.I would say,Think about the [...]

Worry met disappointment,And introduced me to patience.The wait was long butI checked my heart,It was still beating. I woke up,Looked outside,Everything looked the sameBut I can change that. Today I woke up on the rightSide instead of the left. Showered with cold waterInstead of hot.Did I like it?NoWould I do it again?Yes Check my heart,that’s [...]

Expect the unexpected

Expect the unexpected

Hey Siri,What’s the weather forecast for today?—It’s currently cloudy with a chance of rain. Again?It’s been weeks! —Look at the squirrels and birds outside.If their tree was to be cut down,Their work, preparations,And home would be gone forever. They might cry.But do you think they sit aroundAnd do nothing?They move on,And find another tree,Knowing their [...]

Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After

In a world where there’s hate,Sadness, anger, jealousy and struggle.I wonder what the world would be like,If everyone got what they wanted.What would happen if every time we wished for something,It came true.  Would the things that helpedBuild our character still exist?It wouldn’t be peace.It would be a world filled with Concealed fears masked by Joy.

Sunset Lover

In a world where there’s no peaceI rely on unknown places to heal,That brings hope and serenity. I want to be somewhere so beautifulIt brings tears to my eyes.Somewhere that can’t be improved By the imagination,Way beyond invention and fantasy. Anyplace better than envisioned, A place that paints a picture So unreal it helps me [...]

Droplets In The Sun

Droplets In The Sun

After a storm, There won’t always be a beautiful rainbow To show you there’s hope. We forget about the different thingsThat God brings after a storm. When the rain has stopped, And the sun starts to shine You look at droplets of rain,And see raindrops.I look at those raindrops and seeJewels and diamonds. As the suns settles on themMaking them glisten, they [...]

Why Do The Leaves Fall?

Why Do The Leaves Fall?

Why do the leaves on the treesHave to fall down? They create such beauty to the eye, They are homes to millions, And they entertain as they dance all day. Once they fall,The world becomes still.  I wonder if leaves that regrow in spring, Hold the souls of the old ones. Do the barks miss the leaves Once they’re gone? They must feel [...]
