In the depths of great sadness
I threw my hands in the air
There is nothing I can do!
It’s beyond my control!
The sadness was still there
but it was no longer great
All there is to do is wait
Leave it for time to decide…
And it did.

To closing out a year

It’s almost the end of a new year
and things that were meant to be done
got put on the back burner
and sleep and self care
and fighting some sickness
was the focus
Setting boundaries
learning likes and dislikes
took precedent
so maybe a few things didn’t happen
but so many more important things…

The dance of life

The ups and downs
the spinning around
dancing on a cloud
gotta sit down
catch breath
only to be pulled back in
such is life I guess
gotta stand up to feel it
rest and recover
dance around with passion
live a life
have fun
breaks when needed
but don’t, don’t, don’t forget
have fun
because you never know
what’s to come

Happy to help

It’s everywhere
wherever I turn
no matter where I go
as far back as I remember
when things were rough
it was always there
waiting for me
even the darkest days
when days turned to months
like I had met my quota
and all hope was gone
continued the search diligently
one small practice smile in the mirror at a time
felt sudden but my happy returned
It returned with a vengeance
the laughs came back
the happy had returned
tears of happiness still hit me to this day
when I remember the times it all felt hopeless
grateful for the happy
enjoying life as much as I can
grateful for the happy
so I share it with the world
as much as I can
