2010 comes to an end

 It's been a good year. I've experienced new things, seen a lot and accomplished pretty much. The highlights: I started my first blog, I went to two different islands, had our 1st year wedding anniversary, my middle child started Kindergarten, sold some crafts, had a wonderful 1st Christmas in our year old home, and tons of stuff in between all that. As the year comes to an end, I look forward to the new year and more good things to come. I hope to be a positive and shining light that others will be inspired to be positive and happy as well. I can't stand when people are "downers" and never have anything good to say. Appreciate what you have and if you don't like it, change it. Hopefully I will have lighter, more cheerful poems, but I think I'm more expressive in those sad and angry moods. Not very positive, but I'll try.    :)

 I think I will try to incorporate other peoples poetry in my blog as well. Of course the author will get all credit, I'm not trying to steal the light. I'm just not always inspired to write poetry as much as I used to be. I guess my new creative outlet (crocheting and jewelry) has taken over.

He Doesn't Love You

he doesn't love you.

i wish you could see 
the mess you're creating
the people you're hurting
the friendships are fading
the daughter you're raising
you're making her crazy
it's a matter of time
when it all catches up
your life is in shambles
it was all for what?
some loser 
who came from the gutter
he slipped you a mickey
now molds you like butter
turned your world upside down
now you closed your shutters
he taught you to lie
he taught you to stutter
why can't you see 
that this shit isn't right
open your eyes
why won't you fight
take your life back
come back to the light
your children are crying
you can't hear their plight
you're too busy trying 
to be his delight

he doesn't love you.

Racist - A Limerick

It's the year two thousand ten
you're still looking at my skin
your mind is disturbed
wish you were unheard
when will this madness just end?

an uninspired rhyme
in a ho hum kind of mood
just tryin to fill some lines
with a careless attitude

This World

in this world full of hate
there is one who always thinks they're so great
there are lies that are told
by someone who is so bold
to twist words
and conquer verbs
who must always be heard
it's no wonder this world is so perturbed
we believe things that are absurd
when will we be set straight?
probably when it's too late
we are headed for this fate
too much of nothing on our plate
no one will stand up
for fear of something to errupt
everyone sings the same song
to be right is to be wrong
this can't keep going on
tell me how long
will this war ever end?
will our world ever mend?
can our minds ever bend
back to truth, guess it depends
can't we all just be friends?

you're choking me
you're bad for my health
but when you're around
i want nothing else
i wanna taste you on my lips
and breath you all in
fill my body with your toxins
that make my head spin
i reek of your stench
but sometimes i don't care
i got your funk on my hands 
on my clothes, in my hair
i'm an addict for you
but it's time for me to quit
i need to get right
in my life, you no longer fit
you're not gonna run me
you're not gonna win
but the desire keeps calling
calling me to sin
the clouds, they are blinding
it's hard to see through the smoke
but you're messing with my heart,
my lungs, this is no joke
i won't smell like an ashtray
my mouth won't taste like shit
cuz i'm done smoking cigarrettes
this time i really quit.

I didn't quit right away, but I did quit and am now smoke-free!


her name is like a spell
no, like a song, my Isabel
her smile is contagious
her laugh is infectious
her soul is pure and innocent
her beauty is simply heaven sent
she's overflowing with love
my angel from above
she loves to hug and kiss
this feeds into her bliss
it's a shame that she'll have to grow
and one day she will have to go
out to this world of lies and hate
i can't protect, or hold her from fate
i can only teach her all i can 
to be the best, for the good of man
when the time comes, i'll let her leave
because i know she'll have dreams to achieve
but for now, she's still my baby
i'll mold her until she becomes a lady.

Isabel was about 8 years old.


a little bit of this
and a little of that
a laid back personality
that's a matter of fact
cocoa buttery skin
and some chocolate slanted eyes
workout to stay slim
and i try to be wise
patient and kind
are some traits that i pursue
i strive to be best
in all that i do
don't take it as a weakness
i'm a number one pick
unlike your average everyday chicks
i'm the Perfect Mix.
