Of drawing Handsome Harry near
With the use of a love potion;

And oiling love's locomotion,
I will gladly...Read More

So many thoughts that can lift or degrade me.

I swear there’s no heaven
I’m just twenty seven

Two toddlers, never married
Two fathers, my life far too harried

My life doesn’t resemble storybook fables

I live stressed out with fatigue
I often wonder if I’m out of my league

The More You Do a Thing
The more you do a thing, you’ll find,
The better that it gets.
By slacking off, it’s obvious
That you will have regrets.

Developing a skill or else
Rehearsing for a show,
It’s repetition that you need
To blossom and to grow.

Commitment and determination
Are the surefire keys
