Sense of humour, elevating our spirits
Musing over the simple things in life, rejoicing at what we find
Imagination stimulated, childlike, seeing the wonders in life
Light heartedness, laughing at one’s self!
Everything as it is meant to be, smiling, enjoying, the gift of life
P aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace
Happiness is found within not in people and things
Acceptance of the present regardless of what fears/ inner demons you may be facing
Persistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us
Patience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials and tribulations life often presents to us, unexpectedly
Inside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a smile on your face
Never give up on yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart and a positive mind set
Endless love & happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay
Spirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural state of being
Smile in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward. Live as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow :) :) :)

Talking excessively just can’t stop.
Overly stressed and beginning to flop.
Messing in matters you need to stay out.
Ushering in tension and running about.
Choices being made without a second thought.
Holding others hostage by your own malicious plots.
Drama, drama, drama that’s all I hear.
Rehearsing matters over and over again.
Always in the valley of o.p.p.
Mettling in other’s business this should not be.
Angry at others and being the drama queen.

Physical suffering, too many,
Afflicted by physical diseases and pains,
Inconceivable that nothing can be done,

F ailing to do this is simply detrimental to one’s own health.
O ften it’s done as a very last resort before madness sets in.
R eality dictates that vengeance is venial and vindictive.
G oing forward on an ethical and moral journey towards a more sublime goal
I nvolves practice in this humble virtue as well as others.
V erily it is the key to releasing one’s self from a prison of one’s own making.
E ventually, I’m told, practice of the virtue with prayer makes for a happy life.
Majestic leaves, trees, and flowers surrounding
Each deep breath feels empowering
Daoism adheres to “all is one” and “one is all”
Instantly… all chalkboard writing vanishes, nothing else befalls
The road to the energy center unveils
Air flows through the lungs, everything else pales
Time itself seems to slow to a halt
Instinct dominates the other senses in a sudden assault
Opening a gateway to a serene dimension
Nourishing the soul, meditation stretches the tension

Add some amusement to aches,

Giggle your way through the shakes,

Can't do everything have to learn to
Overcome resistance to help
Need love to feel you can
Thank people and return the love by
Reward good deeds, dont have to be perfect
Own imperfections and how to counterbalance them
Let yourself make mistakes
I ncredibly tired, can't close my eyes.
N eeds to count sheep, or bottles of beer.
S lave to the grind of sleeplessness.
O utstretched and uncomfortable.
M aking myself crazy counting backwards and forward.
N eed some "Sleepy Time" tea!!!!
I may never sleep again.
A lways grumpy the next day.
Nights like these I'm glad your here
Your unique flavor some folks fear. (try cherry then ;) and cheer)
Quiet slumber soon I'll take.
Until the morn when I wake.
I'll feel better then I did before.
Looking forward to tomorrow even more.
ALL HAVE A
NEW WISHES AND
WAITS AROUND THE CORNER,
YET WE ALL
ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO
REALITY OF LIFE.
A great and noble idea to improve many ways of life,
Fiasco from the start, too big was the beginning strife.
Fairness for all was never set up within the many lines.
Only the government can create, without seeing the signs.
Republicans and Democrats, lost in a world of decline.
Democrats, Republicans, live beyond, yours and mine.
Americans need to be aware of the growing control.
Before we lose everything, including our living soul,
Listen to their arguing and noncompliance to law.
Each of them has nothing, to lose after all.
Care for them is guaranteed, after they leave.
A continuance of pay, benefits with no reprieve.
Retirement is not less in their pockets, you see.
Eternal pay received, unlike you and me.
Accountability has no meaning any more.
Culpability and more they just ignore.
Take heed Americans, or be forever poor.
Intoxication.....good or bad?
Not good if you're intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol. My
Future is important to me. Young ones,
Little ones, old ones. The
United States should be drug and alcohol free,
Even if it takes a lifetime.
No one should ever do drugs or become intoxicated.
Change can happen but it starts with you!
Everyone can make a difference.
Penetrative prodigious plundering pestilential prod of pain
Ambiguous avarice amassing astounding avalanche of ache
Injuriously instigating incessant inconsolable irritation
Nattering numbness needling nerves to nail the heart with fire and fear.
Feathers flocking night
The rocks gnaw the flesh of sight
Icarus groans death
The stake through the tongue
The vice tightens without end
I crumble in skin
What singes the brain
Stranding me in motion scraps -
The hog teeth of pain.
O Christ, your cross spike
My flesh, plundering virtue
From my callousness.
Trembling nail in me
Biting bone breaking blood's vein
Winces through the night
Vinegar or gall
I would drink for ease of pain
And blind fear of death
Yet to die is ease
I seek but grimace away
In sweat and shaking.
Enter the cavernous chamber
Met by the paperwork__you know the clipboard
Enter all this information first right here
Remember we need address, SS#__So we can trace you
Good we've got all that so now we'll treat you
Enter the little room with a I don't care nurse
Now I want to know what would equal good care
Care that would keep you coming back
Yeah! We want return visits not wellness
Room without view
Occupied by much equipment
Opposite of home's comfort
Offering of sanity in a crystal vial.
Cleansed with the essence of a childhood lost.
Down the drain. Left a stain.
Opposing forces overtake the senses.
Clarity and peace – a figment of twisted imagination.
Down the drain. Nothing to gain.
Overload of obsession.
Counting, counting, counting numbers and names.
Down the drain. Very last grain.
Opening the facial cavity in a cry for help.
Crying gets you nowhere.
Down the pain. Nicotine train.
Down the pain. Down the pain.
Capture me, in your most charming chalice
Of white porcelain engraved with cherry cherubs and roses
Fill me to the brim till I foam, white against my chocolate brown
Fumes of mine intoxicate you and your tongue yearns to taste of my essence
Ever so gently you smell me, nip me, slowly to savor my every flavor
Eternally, I charm you and never shall you know fineness as this from another.
Seek me you shall, tirelessly from here on,
Peace shall you feel, only when you find my teasing, elusive quality
Endlessly shall you hold me in your high esteem and appreciation
Loving the taste me each morn’ and eve’, any time you want, and
Leave me you shan’t for I am your obsession and incurable addiction
To all wo crave turkey...good appetite and good health!
Utilize your skills in creating charm in a bright dining room.
Round up the best ideas for success, ask if you need help.
Kidding yourself is absurd, get all the help from friends.
Enamor yourself with dinnerware and silverware that match.
Yearn for an athmosphere so warm, cheerful and elegant.
Allow kindness when dealing with kids who spill apple cider.
Nobody should be privileged to say Grace but the host.
Dance afterward with everyone in the decorated living room.
Papa can smoke his cigar, if it doesn't bother the guests.
Unity should be stronger on this day when all thank the Lord.
Major issues about noises, caused by children, should be ignored.
Pretend that Thanksgiving Day is the last one they'll ever see.
Keyboard should play Hymns of thanks, not songs they all like.
Inside the fireplace, the red log crackles reminiscing Thansgivings past.
Nag not when the dog chases the cat under the table...laugh!
Parents should be soft, not harsh...let Thansksgiving be a fun day!
Inside the fireplace the log crackles...reminishing of Thanksgivings past.
Endure the screams and the fights a little longer...no child is an angel.
Say the final prayer of gratitude as everyone bows their heads.
M ake my head hurt
I t makes me vomit
G ot to go to bed
R age, Rage, Rage
A llows me no peace
I nsists on misery always
N ever lets me rest
E gads!!! Just shoot me
S ucks! Sucks! Sucks!
V is for the violent images created by the ID
I is for the immaculate figmentations that come to play
O is for the opticals of illusions
L is for the lucidness I have yet to succumb to
E is for the evolution of child's play to harmful reality
N is for the nonsense my tongue blurts out in insanity
T is for trickery schizo-affective plays on me like a leprechaun
Vacuum, to gaze at the warnings
In front of you but
Not adhering to them
Going on dates and playing the field
Overlooking the signs,
Never expecting it to happen to you
But you are not immune
Owning up to being ignorant does not
Rule you out as a
Receiver or carrier
Of the dreaded disease…
When taking liberties instead of precautions
Eventually you’ll end up
Dead or living with regret…
The worst part
Is that it can be prevented, even
Maintained, in the
End it’s your choice, please choose wisely, decide today…

Inspired by Carol Brown's Contest "Happy New Year"
Dedicated to my Poetry Family on the SOUP
Author's note : Check this Poem out next Year
Great outside light diminished
To end sad
(SAD is an illness that some people have when they don't get enough light in
the winter and some people have an additional illness to getting too much
light in summer which causes depression.)
Hours into minutes
As the New Year arrives
Partying, singing " Auld Lang Syne "
People toast to 2010
Young and old unite
New births will grace our world
Endlessly, full of delight
We enter into this New Year
Yonder months ahead
Enjoying life to the full
Remembering, resolutions said
My entry into Carol's contest " Happy New Year "
Future dreams revealed day by day
University a memory and resource
Treasures so refined and unique
Us daring to dream
Realistic and powerful
Excellence personified by simplicity
Dreams to live the good memories
Reality a welcome communication
A thesaurus of good deeds and friendship
Miracles blessed by the Lord
Sounds of future accomplishments
It's in your body.
Now it's too late
To take it back because
Of your mistake. Don't
It's because you drank.
Car accidents are deadly, especially when you
This is why you don't drink
In a car while you're driving.
Oh no! The result is a crash.
Now it's too late to take it back!
A choo! Achoo! Oh geez, here we go!
L ousy allergies putting on a show.
L ingering effects of pollen's assault,
E yes weeping, nose running, I wish it would halt.
R ecurring miseries with each seasonal change,
G uaranteeing discomfort, plans rearranged.
I ndecent exposure to dust mites and such,
E nergy draining meds a necessary crutch.
S niffing and sneezing - I've had enough!
FELICIA (dedicated to the efforts of all on the HIV/AIDS scourge)
Rapturous ecstasy emanates from the town
Everyone, everywhere spoke of this damsel
She has just newly packed into town
Gossips could be seen around in their clusters:
"Who is she and where is she from?"
More to that, like a magnetic attraction
Felicia draws the attention of residents to herself
Wives are holding tight to their husbands;
The surely of Felicia is surely a threat.
Not even with her skimpy skirts and dresses
Felicia cuts the image of an angel
With her flawless grammar and sense of humour
The bulge of her regions make lookers apopletic
Her steps typify the menacing walk of a cat
She has all it takes for men to turn around
Society people want to have a taste of her
Women desire her to boost their ego
The mighty, the influential and intellectual inclusive
A King once offered her half of his kingdom
A Governor dangled a mouth-watering contract
A Vice Chancellor even offered her 'Medicine Admission'
Felicia suddenly became cheap and accessible
Initial ego and applause faded into thin air
She went up for the Goliaths to chew,
She came down for the crawling to lick.
She offered her body, a ransom for all
Promiscous men were happy to have their fill
Gloom, sorrow and tears soon pervaded the town
The toll of death was rising by the day
Surviving men depict postures of 'Somalian famine'
Their blood almost drained to the marrows
There was a peculiarity in their deaths
Only those who pitched tents with Felicia are victims
Soon the mist began to clear
I then could see beyond the ordinary
I'd ransacked every material available for clarity
The word of knowledge then came from ABOVE
The second name of FELICIA is AIDS
(c) WP May 1999
once there was an old man on a lane
he always had many cats
then he took a train
and went down another lane
Many people don’t
Understand all the
Limitations we face.
These affect each
Individual differently yet
People continue to
Laugh when we
Experience “MS Moments”
Some moments like:
Cognitive and memory
Loss along with
Extreme fatigue can
Ruin plans with
Others because even
Stress can make
Individuals with MS
Suffer a relapse
Hoping your times are all easy and not rougH
All to be considered a triumph without dilemmA
Passing into a new year without any hardshiP
Pervasive good luck follow you down or uP
Your entire new year, may you laugh and be happY
Never may you worry or have a concerN
Ending the old year with hope that’s genuinE
With the coming new year, may blessings reneW
Your entire family, may they all enjoY
Each and every day in the new year completE
All your harvests amount to a plethorA
Repeating as they did last yeaR
This is a double acrostic. The last letter in each line is the same as the first.
Affects so many people’s
Lives, that we try hard being
Zealous, by offering them
Help and support for all those
Effected by this disease.
Involved in their care, and to
Maintain pride and dignity
Every day, so that we can
Remember them, and just how
Special they have always been.
Inside the forbidden
Only to make you
Never what to return again
Musing for memories
Etched in back of mind
Mom I remember
Reguarding brothers drowning
Inquiry stated caused by flashbacks from meth and herion
Eleven and didn't quite still understand
So I just prayed to God to forgive his lost soul
Memories Was My Topic
Tribute To My Brother Gary
Wet,wonderful, clean, and refreshing
(Allegory for something as well as plain water.)
Sluggish and settled
or softened with age
Low speed and laid back
a lagging old sage
Overdue and overwhelmed
out of order and old
Wound down and weary
but her heart is pure gold
of boys and girls and
big kids too binding their fantasy
in funny costumes and
not so cute masks to
scare and trick
and maybe get a treat
needed for a sweet tooth. But,
devilment lurks today ...
glowing out other terrors
ominous x-rays that may take a woman
under real knives to
live out the fears found in a
sentence of breast cancer.
Suddenly I hit the floor.
Events leading to this can't be explained.
I have been through this before and now my
Zest for life has become contained.
Understanding these "spells" have been hard ---
Really hard since they seem to come from no where
Epilepsy has become my dealt card
So now I have learned to deal with no fear!
One heartbreak from a lost loved one.
Nearer to Heaven, they have such a gift.
Every soul has the choice for so many.
Transplantations of organs, Gods endowment,
Reviving of life through a medical option,
Another’s existence gave a second chance.
God provides the knowledge, we all learn.
Evangelical intervention the sole provider,
Death of one in tragedy delivers restoration.
You will supply love, from ones deliverance.
For all that it its worth I find your courage inspiring
Everyday I watch you brave it out refusing to give in
As the days turn to weeks and blur into months
Recouping all the strength that this merciless beast has torn from you
Leaving believers in your wake with each visit to the cancer ward
Eveyone applauding you efforts your pesistence
Saving the best for last you never even consider holding back
Saving herself with all the and support to win her battle with breast cancer
