Poem: Sometimes Hurtul Words Can Heal

Sometimes hurtful words can heal
Make you see the truth within the lies
That you made yourself believe were real
To cover up the failures in your life

So when hurtful words come your way
Look past the hurt that attacks you
And focus on the intention of what was said
For it is meant to help you soar
Not lead you to surrender in defeat

Poem: Rain

Rain bangs on windows, on roofs, and on cars
Creates puddles and rivers and flows very far
Rain cools the body and soothes the soul
Refreshes the air and helps the plants grow
The rain is essential for all living life
For without rain no life would survive

Song Lyric: I Need Love Here Tonight

Wish it was me
Wish it was you
But there is nothing
That I can do
Can't bring you back
Can't make you stay
So here I am
Well on my way

I'm on my way to find the reason
Why you have left me here this season
So I can make things right again
Be ready for my love's new plan
Oh how I need love here tonight
A love to finally set things right

I hope I find
Love at my door
So I can let
My happiness soar
Right now it's sour
I want it sweet
So that every hour
Makes me complete

I'm on my way to find the reason
Why you have left me here this season
So I can make things right again
Be ready for my love's new plan
Oh how I need love here tonight
A love to finally set things right

Poem: Castaway

When I sit home alone
Sometimes I feel like a castaway
The only person to talk to
Me, myself and I
And so I do just that
For sitting all alone in total silence
Can be worse than being in a crowd
But feeling like you are
The only person in the room

Poem: Metamorphosis

Maybe things are meant to change
Everything we’ve come to expect
Taking a turn in a different direction
After all that is what life is
Making changes, thriving, moving
Outside of our comfort zones
Reaching out for things yet unknown
Proceeding to learn and grow
Having experiences never to be forgotten
Over the course of our lives
Staying strong and determined
In everything that we set out to do
So that we can become better people

Poem: Often Times I Wish...

Often times I wish I were a different person
The kind of person who not only wants change
But one that believes in herself, never doubting her actions
Takes the ever-present fear and pushes it aside
And exudes confidence, drive and a fighting spirit
To actually make the desired changes happen

I do not wish to be the kind of person
Who wants her current life to be different
But instead of taking chances
And doing everything in her power
To make change happen and turn her life around
Just sits there in her room crying her heart out
Unsatisfied with the way things are turning out
And feeling like nothing will ever change for the better
And life will continue to be the same as it is now

But it is hard to accomplish as fear reigns over me
And I lack the confidence, drive and fighting spirit
That once somehow roamed within me
Causing me to believe that I don’t have what it takes
To create the life that I want to live
A life where the constant tears, whether visible or not
Are replaced by tears of joy, laughter and eternal peace
A life where all my accomplishments are at their peak
And I and everyone around me is proud
Of all I have achieved and the person I have become

Poem: My Love Is Not for Sale

My love is not for sale
My love has to be
Earned
Deserved
Treasured
Nurtured
Appreciated
Reciprocated in spades

No crisp one hundred dollar bills
Gemstones or diamonds
Gold or silver
Or other material things
Can ever buy my love
