"Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight."
- Helen Keller -

2006

I wished I could reach inside of me and make the words of the voice spell out all that my heart feels. The emptiness, the silence, and yes in the love I still harbor there, but yet I find I cannot, for I can no longer feel my inner self as part of me, but as some foreign object linger around my head but not within myself.

"The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach."
- Benjamin Mays -

2004

if you ever wonder are you loved
the answer is yes
if you ever wonder am I here
the answer is yes
if you ever wonder do I believe
the answer is yes

what is your answer?

2003

today was surreal
as we entered the store
disbelief and sorrow

2002

in silence I wait for a sign that may never come
in silence I wonder what I have done
in silence I weep for the loneliness you have left
in silence I pray for a sign of something unknown

2001

touch the heart that holds the emotion of love so deep that finding it may not occur unless you persevere and take hold with all you have, then and only then can love be what it is to be.

2000

I want to walk the path that is the right one for me.

1999

I would like to love you the way I think love should be, I would like to feel those feelings, where nothing in my mind is but thoughts of you. I would like to forget all that was in the past, and thing only of tomorrow. How do we block the history, once the innocence is lost. How do we find the strength to believe again, the daring to trust again and the Love to share once more

1998

Stones, Rocks and Pebbles
many shapes, sizes and forms
placed in a pattern to hold the future
laying forgotten and ignored
stacked to hold up the foundation
moved from one spot to another
laid flat for feet to trod upon
pushed high by time to build mountains to climb
broken and chipped
Stones, Rocks and Pebbles

1997

The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe -
