2003

Been thinking of late that maybe I won't be posting thoughts so often anyhow not at this time, but who knows tomorrow the wind may change and I'll feel like once again, expressing and exploring my inner feelings, my thoughts of the day or of my emotional roller coaster that I seem to be riding of late. Maybe...something for me to ponder this day.

love the inner person for who she is
love the inner self that has become
love the inner one who gives the best it can
love the inner peace that becomes

I find that I care more than I want

I find that I have more than I did

1998

Sitting in the stillness of the night
thinking
wanting
needing

The blackness outside seems a reflection
of how i feel inside
an emptiness surrounds me
controlling me

Some days I feel that lost
like what do I really want
what will it take to be complete
I keep looking for the hole

I look back over the months
searching for the days of light
the days that were filled with beauty and
laughter

Wondering if there will be more
Sometimes i feel a hand upon my shoulder
touching me lightly
guiding me

But then it leaves and I feel alone
knowing I must take the first steps on my own
dreading the thought of falling
not being able to stand.

Fear holds me in place
holding me back from dreams
confining me to what if's
barring my progress forward

Just Thinking
Wanting
and Needing

So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
