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
Reciprocated in spades

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

Poem: Mysterious Encounter

A mysterious encounter can turn into
An exciting and blossoming relationship
You just have to put any fears or doubts aside
And take a chance on the yet unknown stranger
So go ahead and set up a face to face meeting
So you can discover if there is any spark
Any connection between the two of you
And if any of that comes into existence
On your first mysterious encounter
No matter how tiny it may be
It’s a sign that it can potentially grow
Into something deeper
Something more meaningful
Something everlasting
Something you will treasure for life
