"It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan."
– Eleanor Roosevelt -


Another Friday, Another week completed, Another night alone, Another night sleeping, Another night fighting with life, It just another.


If you have never experienced
the danger of battle,
the loneliness of imprisonment,
the agony of torture or
the pangs of starvation,
you are ahead of 20 million people
around the world.


I still believe


I should have thoughts, but nothing I can put into words, or express, it's as though there are no words for what runs in my mind at times, there are thoughts there, but so hard to write, as though they are lost somewhere from the coding of my brain and the touch of my fingers upon the key board


Laundry done, furniture moved, pages updated, floor swept, nap taken, tv watched, cigarettes smoked, salad ate, day is done and I seek my empty bed to dream dreams of where I want to be and places I want to go.


a friend is someone who will listen without judging
talk without pity and who will sit in silence until the time comes


gone is yesterday, but will tomorrow ever come
When is my turn, my time, my place to be


feather kisses
of color and light
silence misses
the hour of midnight
whispers of wishes
wrongful rights


When I'm quiet you question why
I find it hard to answer
at times I like to be alone within myself
I like to dream and think of things I'll never have or do
When I'm laughing you question why
I find it hard to answer.
at times I like to leave my sorrows behind
I like to feel the joy of the day given to me
When I'm crying you question why
I find it hard to answer
at times the sadness comes and steals my being
I hate the times it does


Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
