care free days

9:14 pm 22 feb 2014

Eating dinner and watching children play
Takes me back to a care free day

When I was young and life was still new
Goofing off with a buddy or two

Talking about girls 
and exploring the world

Not worried or wondering what others thought
taking the stage right there on the spot

Beating drums made out of air
with unwashed hands and long messy hair

No commitments and no where to go
just taking it easy nice and slow

A Lazy Sunday

A lazy Sunday afternoon
For reading and reflecting,
For crossword puzzles, Words with Friends
And on-the-phone connecting.

The dreary weather makes me feel
No guilt for staying put.
I did my morning walk so there’s
No goofing off afoot.

Well, maybe just a little bit
For closets should be tackled,
But it’s real nice from chores to be
Just fleetingly unshackled.

Wrath of President Obama

We have come to a cross roads in this country,
where some folks truly believe
they don't have to listen to a Zebra,
Minorities get no respect in America!
Citizens are sinking to an all time low,
because they have grown weary of
the Political Show,
Republicans and Democrats have both
left messes,
Yet, somehow ordinary people are dealing
with the stresses of a torn goverment,
Advantages are being taken that are inconceivable,
because minorities are thought of as not being
commanding people,
Businesses think they can treat consumers
shabbily because there is only a minority at the
For all intense purposes,
Minorities are perceived as goofing off on the job,
The wrath of Obama should be unleashed on these
simple sods,
America is still Red, White and Blue,
Minorities should be treated like their
It will never become a white/black or minority
thing, if people act from their hearts.

How did I get this way

Stars bright
Fireworks flying
Being close
Feelin safe
How I get this way?....

Giggls an laughter
Calm talks
Silliness an goofing off
How did I get this way?


The moment you walked through the door
The moment I saw your smile
The moment I heard your voice...
Your name hasn't left my mind.

The night before the next surgery,
Playing games in the hotel room.
Laughs and giggles all around.
Tomorrow forgotten for now.
Getting your mind off of things,
You are sitting there laughing,
Carrying on. Tomorrow will be different
No goofing off. No laughter.
Serious tomorrow.
Rushing about in the morning
Getting you to the hospital,
Getting the rest of the cancerous tissue.
Chemo treatments to help heal it all.
That's the surgery that's left,
The removal of the lymph nodes, 
And the insertion of a chemotherapy port.
Then we're all set.
Then we will be able to get back to normal.
