Is to be better to myself
Leaving all the
Stress and pain 
Behind me
Praying for a world
Full of happiness
And less hate
Towards one another 
For children to be able
To attend school and
Not be afraid
To stop the killing
Of small children
Who’s life has been
Cut short...Read More

Christmas is for children, a time of wonders and wishes
Christmas is for children, once a year treats delicious

Wanting gifts from jolly old Saint Nick
hoping naughty times he can forgive and forget

Premium Member A Reading From The Book Of Reflective Understanding
Who was Saint Nick? 
Was it a military trick? 
Just like a Screen Actors Guild member 
You might remember 
St Nick made this thing stick 
By changing his name to Santa Claus 
Then magically he started breaking down walls 
Stuffed...Read More

The Singing Elf
Oh Santa where are you?
Have you noticed yet I'm lost?
I hope you will soon find me,
Before I freeze in the evening frost.

I might only be one little elf,
But I'd like to think you care.
Surely someone knows I'm missing?
Does anyone know...Read More

The Gift

Some people say Christmas in this present day
Wanders lost
In ads and tinsel carelessly strung
Upon an artificial bough;
Some people say the Christmas spirit
Lives no more -
The simple Christ Child’s birth
Coldly mocked by glittering ads
For diamond rings and robot toys;
Some say...Read More

Predictable Christmas

I know no one’s coming.
Yet I put up a tree.
I can stare at it. 
It can stare at me.

The lights in the bathroom?
I’ll put up again this year.
Quite likely l’ll shed 
the same salty tear.

New Years, yesterday’s fears

Premium Member The poet lay on a barrow dead
This is the poem that made my untried 
fourteen-year-old mind gag and cry
as we poured over every rotten word.

Trapped by magnolia classroom walls
and unwanted thoughts, I recoiled. 
I was caged by things I couldn’t face.

These are the verses that led...Read More

Premium Member We Lost Her in November
She was a doll
Always wore a smile
Her laugh set fairies on fire

She was the best
We all loved her
She had cancer though
She was only twelve

We made a large card
To send to Mayo Clinic
Where she had been for two weeks

We all loved...Read More

Now You Know
The first time anyone called me special,
I said, “Thank You.”
for making me realise loving you wasn’t enough.

Your greatest weapon 
is beating in the centre of this chest

and breathing is a gift
given by the mother
watching her son drive his fist through...Read More

Premium Member THE EMPTY SWING
Is it still there, swaying in the
Chicago air?
I dream of myself with dark,
ribboned braids, being just seven.
And swinging my tanned legs as
hard as I Could,,trying to kiss God's 
cheek in heaven.

Oh to be seven again!
When free speech reigned.
Girls had cap...Read More

Premium Member Our New Breathe Room
Our school’s new breathe room is breathing.
In a positive, upbeat, happy, comforting way.
A sanctuary for whomever needs it.

I am calming down fast.
Can feel the solitude and peace
Bringing my stress level down.

Solace to my soul.
Relaxing almost instantly.
A sanctuary, for children.

For those who are homeless with nothing to eat. 
They sleep in the alleys on filthy concrete.
They're always wondering where they'll get there next meal.
For those who are hungry THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.
For children whose parents beat and neglect.

Hey There

Giving so much 
I can't see you
with your husband4
That should be me
We tested the waters and the great sea
found a sailor.
Nearby I fixed the dog: he'll never love again
Lusting beast, he'll never love again.
I found an old picture of...Read More

Jingle, jingle... jingle 
As we emptied our piggy-banks 
Hoping we saved up twenty five cents 
Every Saturday afternoon, we would excitedly wait
Twelve O'clock sharp the bells would ring 
Screen doors flew open when we heard them
The kids in the neighborhood...

in eighteen ninety-three,
she was a well-established wife
at the age of forty,
and she had born no children
since she lost one long ago,
her husband blamed himself for that,
but neither of them could know.

They had a big...Read More

Can Never Regret Them, Part I
My name is Christopher Hobart,
and it would be a real safe bet

and his appetite was amazing.
He liked to chew and munch and slurp,
Bert never stopped his grazing.

But one day after eating, 
he felt a little strange.
Something was brewing in his tum,
and Bert didn't like the change.
