I Am A Female

I am a femaleI am strong,and I am brave;yet, I am also gentle,and can be fragile,hurt easily by words,and silence. One moment I can take on the world,the next I can be brought down;down to my knees,to cry,to pray,to pick up the broken piecesand carry on. I have the force of a hurricane,and the strengthContinue reading “I Am A Female”

As The Sun Sets

And as the sun sets,my mind wandersover the day past. Was I good enough,kind enough,loving and forgiving? What will the morrow bring?Continued sadness, or joy,hope or despair?The answer, residing ever,and always, in me. For, it is in faith I live,and in faith, hope,and in hope, peace. Yes, there may be sorrow,even anger and regret,but theyContinue reading “As The Sun Sets”

Today I Remember

Today, I remember,all that was given,all that was lost;those who fought and died,never to return,theirs was the cost. The ones who were injured,some visible, some not,nameless faces;of past and of present,fighting, ever fighting,for truth, liberty and justice. We honour their service,honour all, their bravery,those too in an unmarked grave;I promise as I stand here today,toContinue reading “Today I Remember”

In The Quiet of The Night

In the quiet of the night, my mind wandersthrough winding staircases;visiting all those I have loved,all that I have done. Letting go of old hurts,remembering the innocenceof the child I once was,understanding how it was all lost. Undercover of darkness I am free,free to think my deep thoughts;free to decipher my feelings,free to cry, toContinue reading “In The Quiet of The Night”

Beware the Lurkers

For they, the lurkers in the dark,come swiftly and quietly;luring the souls of the innocent,stealing the souls of the lost. How quietly and invisibly they glide,unbeknownst to men and women alike;who have let down their guard,who have opened their entryway. Always hiding in the shadows,blending into the darkness;reaching out to snatch the unaware,in an everlastingContinue reading “Beware the Lurkers”

The Wind That Blows

Oh, the wind that blows,carrying dreams of the lonely,wishes, what-ifs and if only,while the leaves whisper their goodbyes. Oh, the wind that carries,the promises of spring,the song the birds sing,while seeds scatter to live yet again. Oh, the wind that ravages,tearing up all that it meets,sending garbage flying through streets,while lovers take shelter and findContinue reading “The Wind That Blows”

It Is In the Learning

It is in the learning,the stretching of the mind;in the growing up,ourselves we start to find. Yet in the learning, there is a struggle,and sometimes failure, yes, it’s true;it’s how we handle each of these,that determines if we make it through. We expand our horizons,when we’re learning something new;and open many new doors,to help ourContinue reading “It Is In the Learning”

In The Silence

I speak volumes in the silence,leaving words of love unsaid;a look, a smile, a touch,the way I tilt my head. There is sorrow in the silence,a pain unspoken, even still;from a time, so long ago,oh, the pages I could fill. There is a thoughtfulness in the silence,a pondering of sorts;contemplating lifes’ true meaning,a place too,Continue reading “In The Silence”
