Now and Again,
our paths cross Evil People,
you may often wonder
what ate their souls
the most frightening thing is;
that they look ordinary.
I am always puzzled
at how some folks
delight in stirring pots of unrest
in the lives of others,
yet, they want to go home
and expect to have peace in their lives.
In my place, we say that
he who brings in an insect-infested log
has invited lizards for a feast.
The Western world
has benefitted immensely,
from destabilising and destroying Nations.
For Centuries they did and still do this,
but they complain about a handful of immigrants
fleeing the unrest caused by them.
Tears leak from my eyes
as I watch your broken heart bleed
from the news that we all dread to receive
that a beloved one has passed on
I have no words enough to offer
that will mend the deep ache that you suffer
but I know that with time its sharpness will dull
with time you will smile again through the tears
In this circle of life, we dance in
never knowing whose turn to return it might be
but memories we gather of each other
to remind us when one is no longer there
My dearest Father-in-law just passed on, my husband aches.
I’m sharply reminded that our time apportioned to sojourn here is short. We must not tarry in seeking our purpose, finding peace, making beautiful memories and in living a life that would leave wonderful, indelible marks in the hearts of those who we love.
and my roller coaster crashed!
it came to a jarring halt
my mojo kinda left my heart
pursuing green paper to pay the bills
with little time to sleep a wink
several hungry mouths to feed
my brain almost has no time to think
the greenback has become the king
the king of this jungle called life
I need to get my mojo back
Please forgive my tardiness in responding to your comments. I’m usually not this rude but like my people would say ‘something bigger than the cricket has entered the crickets mouth.’
My life has been a bumpier ride of late, events beyond my control have been trying to take the drivers wheel, but I refuse and trying to get back the grip. I took a pause so that I can get back into the game asap. I have taken odd jobs to keep body and soul together as I ride the rough tide. All is well with me, yet turbulent.
Be well and I’ll be reaching you soon. I miss you.
you said that you’ll board
when the time was right
it’s not there anymore
it sailed away without you
next time you say;
you’ll be ready and waiting,
yet you set some fire
to sit with all those cowards in here
who have waited
for as long as life can count
and you didn’t see it pass again
you are still waiting
Sometimes hurting sits like a heavy rock that sinks your spirit,
sometimes pain leaves tracks wider than a railroad,
sometimes despair runs so deep that it seems bottomless,
sometimes giving up becomes a relief that beckons so softly;
Those times when life has become such trying tedium,
that getting through each day seems an untold hardship,
I hate to offer platitudes that this too shall pass,
but my soul whisper to yours, don’t you ever give up!
Words I share with you, I share with myself,
the encouragement that I give you, I give to myself,
for I’ve found that whoever we are and wherever we are from,
we are all the same balancing our struggles on this journey called life.
Don’t give up on today, you have no idea what tomorrow has to offer. Just wait and see
