"Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more."
– Louis L'Amour -


I know I need to do some things, I need to say somethings, but they have been buried so deep for so long I find I cannot. but without the final words can there ever be any closure? Is closure really what any of us wants in this world that is so screwed up and out of control? Do we know what we have said in the past, the promise we have made, and of those promise we have been unable to keep, if they are still being held to the day they are met?

My thought to ponder


"The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them."
- Psalm 145:18 -


digging through a box of papers looking for some elusive paper I can not find
found in the piles, an envelope with a bow
a letter asking for a home, a special message written by the little orange bike
in the shed she sits, ridden from time to time
when the memories allow the passing of time the smile and the thought remains


splat, splop
drip drop
white speckles
painting the top


maybe I will wait forever to hear good-bye
maybe I never will
maybe my heart won't give up
maybe you don't know
maybe you are unwell
maybe you really have said it
maybe I don't believe that


The movies are the only business where you can go out front and applaud yourself.

Take care of those who work for you and you'll float to greatness on their achievements.
- H. S. M. Burns -


In retrospect

No thoughts today, was to busy taking advantage of my recuperation, and redecorating my Poetry pages.


I wished my tears would stop
I wished he knew how much pain the words cause
I wished he would accept me as I am
I wished I could be what he wants
I wished my love would show
I wished we could share
I wished I was not there
I wished for so many things

Hold my hand and guide me
lead me through life on your chosen path
pull me along through your journey
don't release me to stand alone


Remember that happiness is a way of travel - not a destination.
