Finding Home

Come as you are, to my throne
Come with grace and head held high.
You are my Queen, you are welcome
Here at my side.
Come as you are, to my heart
Come with strength, leave all that's gone.
You are Complete, you lack nothing
Here in this home.
Come as you are, to this world
Come with your gifts, your rarity.
You are Unique, you see that now
Here you are home.

Happiness

You can be happy.

You can be happy….when the scale is high, when the scale is low.

You can be happy….when you have muscles, when you don’t.

You can be happy….when your hair is glam, when it’s a mess.

You can be happy….when your house is clean, when it’s chaos.

You can be happy whenever you please, when happiness is within. ❤

Poetry: Little Boo

Big brown eyes melt my heart, The way you look at me, Makes me count my blessings twice.

Tiny waves of black and white, The way you feel so soft, Gives me comfort inside.

My little Boo, I love you and can only say thank you for the way you’ve touched my life.

You are my sweet little angel, my comfort in this crazy time.

You’ve brought a million and one smiles when otherwise good was hard to find.

This world is lucky to have your kind; we learn from you and no doubt you are here to help us improve.

Because of you my heart has grown in size, thank you sweet Boo for being you. ❤

We Chose

Audio Poetry Reading: We Chose
This is not how the story was suppose to go.
You and me were meant to be fighters, the heroes.
But here we are the underdogs
It seems to me
We didn't even come close.


How did it come to this?
How did we lose our faith?
How did we fall off course?

My God, we chose.


We chose to fall,
We chose to stray
The twisted path.

We chose to stay
In the hardest place,
We chose to fall from grace.


But if we chose the fall,
We can choose the rise.
If we chose despair,
We can choose the hope.


Ten years from now, let us rendezvous 
And bare to each other, soul to soul.
May we say with joy, 
May we say with pride:
My God, we chose the hope.

Emotion of Sad

My emotion is sad.

She resides in the deep 

And travels my veins 

She weighs down the soul

And hollows out bones.

My emotion is sad.

She exhales long the breath

And bends low my frame 

She stretches down the face 

And curls small my heart. 

My emotion is sad

This I know 

And this I know, well.
