Inner Strength

I begin each morning eager for the day
Working for the good of mankind 
Come what may
There have been many hurdles along my way
For some reason unbeknownst to me
I do not stray
This soul is strong in spite of it's emotional dismay
My spirit is my strength today
And guides my life in every way.....

Deaf girl
Speaks with her hands
Great stories she tells of

A Mask To Hide The Truth To Hide The Lies To Hide Me

A Mask To Hide The Truth To Hide The Lies To Hide Me

I wear the mask of lies
I wear the mask of hidden truths
Together we create a dangerous reputation of deceit and heartbreak

I am sadness,hate,and fury
I am happiness,joy,and passion
Together we bring about great chaos

I am your deepest fear and regret
I am your greatest achievement and your biggest hope
Together we create the ties that bind us to others in our lives

I am burned and bruised
I am cover in hugs and kisses
Together we create hurt and promise death and unknown future

I was once happy 
I was once dead
I was once alive
I was once sad
I was once here
I was once there
I was once broken
I was once fixed
Today we wear a mask to hide the truth of or past or future and our present.
How I wish to free myself from this curse
Oh how I wish I could free you
But we share a mask one of pain and regret and guilt.
We have killed, we have lied,and we hurt
This is our mask this is our death this is us our mask of truth our mask to lies

Fought To The Finish

are future strides;
without self-confidence 
not a thing will be accomplished:
greet dire!

I fought
to the finish
with a heavy heartbeat;
I got there by beating all odds:
proud me!

he is music,music is him

Confidence,a radiant aura that defines him 
Even whilst holding dear Jes playing a tune on a whim 
It exudes and transcends his playing flaws until- 
All you can hear turns symphonic like Beethoven 
And his candidness,with each string,becomes proven 

Laudable,is his love and passion for music 
A true love of a jealous kind covering up like a tunic 
Rare as a four leaf clover,a gift from God that makes- 
The sound of his voice melt any frozen heart 
And bring harmony and laughter to a world torn apart 

Illustrious,like the great Achilles born to Thetis and Peleus 
His percussive skills reflect the nature of his muse 
Bringing unique blends of sound to greats like Hamilton- 
Even Lira and Victor can testify to his idiosyncrasy 
That which makes his sound distinguished and classy 

Fastidious,a trait that echoes in his work and mannerism 
'By the blood' is evidently a show of this perfectionism 
Though he carries his talent in a humble manner- 
He expresses himself with great felicity 
Not forgetting that grand touch of simplicity 

Fearless,he valiantly navigates his gift in a foreign land 
Grabbing opportunities whilst gaining the upper hand 
Though fearsome he may be when faced with commitment- 
Love abides in him,he strives to achieve the dream 
Knowing within that he is music,and music is him...

Their feet

To my sons

His feet
Lead him to breech
Any borders and seek
To meet his brothers as equals
His feet
Lead him to leap
Over walls and land on his feet
His feet
Seek to be free
To reach the top of trees
And fly to where dares the eagle

Their eyes

To my daughters

Her eyes
Searching the stars
To share her song, her heart
A clearing in the woods, hazel
Her eyes
Like azure skies
Reflecting in water
Absorbing all that life offers
Her eyes
That cannot lie
The goodness that lies
Within clouds to water God's fields

roughy toughy test

once day night i sat and thought 
how is my test with broomy gruff
i have to write the three passage
within the time of ten minutes 
i thought its easy ,no need
of study ,
i can manage at least of my own
tomorrow at my test i saw the paper
with too many questions
i didn't understand so what to do
the test was roughy for me then i thought was 
no goodies rot 
after the test my friends asked me 
have you been studying  the three passage grugg?
i reply no for me mean time no
that test gave me a shame of
roughy toughy face

Friends for all time

For Carolyn D

A friend
For you I am
Like a closest member
Of the family, as you are
To me.

With that
When you're hurt
I feel the pain enter 
But left with no way to make things

Is what I feel
No matter what I say
meaningless words, bring no change, and
I pray.

That God
Shows you the way
To a beautiful place
In the sun, and where within, peace
Will reign.

Vini Vidi Vici


I came-
The world tasting
Like raspberry candy,
Our orb a snowglobe of which to
Shake up.


I saw
Lightening skies,
Dawn breaking over roofs-
I sighed, inhaling the beauty


I conquered
Worlds with my pen!
Filling pages with ink;
Filling minds with words that speak
Of tomorrow.

Michael Jackson

The King Of Pop 
Lives on!

Dorian Petersen Potter 
Aka Ladydp2000 


Note from the author:
This is my humble poetry tribute, to Michael Jackson. 
I am still in shock over his passing.It is very rough! I am griving a lot  because he's no 
longer with us anymore.I just can't believe still that he's gone and had left us forever.It's so 
sad and tragic.This world for sure now is more of an emptier and colder place without him. 
He shall 
be missed forever by millions of us all over the world.I love you Michael, and always will! 
You'll live in my heart and my soul forever.And I'll never, ever, forget you. Now you're 
singing and dancing in a better place, up in Heaven, where nothing can ever hurt you 

R.I.P. Michael Jackson.
