Striking a Balance
Only 5% of the people like their jobs and live to work,
while the other 95% hate their jobs and work to live.

I consider myself to be a likable person,
otherwise I wouldn't enjoy my own company.

Life not for Play
While playing church & God hell in the heart. One to many deliberately deceive while some honestly want a change of heart. The pope himself can wear a thousand Rosary Beads. The church can blow all the smoke they want...Read More

I want to write about Christmas cookies, 
Angels that hang on the tree, 
and look at me…
then smile.

I want to write about Mistletoe, 
and first kisses,
red cheeks,
red noses, 
and roses. 

I want to share the feeling that I...Read More

Daughter of The King. 
Your namesake blessed a nation, 
be proud. 
You began life, 
ahead of most. 
Already you were glorified, 
held high by your parents. 

Don’t let any take you down, 
as they are all less than you.

I Never Knew You
Written: by Miracle Man

Devoured by fear and emptiness,
We make feeble attempts against imponderable forces.
Forces that coerce our minds while ravaging our souls.
To grasp the skeleton of hope, is not always enough?
The day will come When we accept...Read More

An open heart, 
an open hand, 
a way to say, 
He is in command. 

Placing others above yourself, 
ever trying to reach, 
a point that you may know
His will. 

Kneeling, bowing, 
trying to follow,

Evil Woman

You are part of me, 
I wish that were not true. 
Even now, 
I long to be lost. 
I have heard today
yet one more, 
reason to believe, 
your level of hate, 
had no end.

Dark is the Art

Evil made up, 
hiding in plain site…

Judgments made, 
of others, 
that can not see, 
the color
of their own robes. 

It is easy. 
No glasses, 
No special view, 
or mirror effect…

Our Tree

The green tree in the box, 
kept in the attic,

Not because it is dead, 
or firewood, 
but a project
to be assembled. 
Much like our life, 
from the beginning of I do,

He yelled.
He screamed. 
he was obscene. 

I walked on. 
I wanted to live, 
the perfect life. 
The picket fence,

A mouse in the kitchen,...Read More

Wretched memory
The past uncut ties,
A dimly lighted candle in a distorted guise,
Confessions we try to melt inside lies,
Burn the brightest in our eyes.
The grave we carry around bearing its name,
Is written all over us just the same,
The things we let go...Read More

Letters unsent, 
to people…
that wish they had received them. 
Maybe not write away, 
or all at once, 
but eventually. 

Harsh words spoken, 
throughout the year, 
people with a past…
they can not leave. 
Maybe something;
they are dragging behind.

Do not waste more time!

It is fire and spit,
thin water and urine. 
All lies from city folk. 
The swamp smells, 
it is dying. 
No new water, 
just the old cesspool inlets, 
all the outlets, blocked. 

Cockroaches running,

Washing Instructions

Put the clothes in the washer. 
not quickly, but slowly. 
There was a day, 
this would all be done, 
by hand. 

Four or five large things, 
Maybe some socks, 
a few, 
and the cost will be high.

Straps, and wire, 
cutting ropes…
that make you bleed. 
Not that anyone can see,

Some are worse then others. 
Some have lives,

The word safe, 
never spoken.

I have one,

I have one,
