"Remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth."
- Deuteronomy 8:18 -

"I get up. I walk. I fall down. Meanwhile, I keep dancing."
- Rabbi Hillel -


Today I have a dream
Today I had a thought
Today I had a song
Today I left it all


The path I have walked has been black, because I have failed to open my eyes, to see what is true and what is real versus my dreams and my hopes, I know I need to see things more clearly, take off the rose colored glasses and live life as it is instead of how I wished it could be.


Did you think about me when you saw the stars above? Did you think of me in the coolness of the night, was it your thoughts that woke me in the middle of the night, I swore I heard you whisper my name, calling for me.


can you feel the heartbreak
can you feel the step you have taken on my heart
the heel prints left upon my soul
the scars ingrained within my spirit
the lasting thoughts will not leave my mind


the chill of the air
the rain adds little flair
to days of non pairs
like climbing a stair
going where?
who is there?
why care?


Compromise, if not the spice of life, is it's solidity. It is what makes nations great and marriages happy.
- Phyllis McGinley -


Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
- Soren Kierkegaard -


From the Southern skies I find the Sun
A ray as bright and beautiful as an angels halo
The smile it brings
True, pure sincere, unhampered, nor coaxed
a beating thunder from inside
pleasure abounds and refuses to hide


the winds blow
cold from the North
bringing to the surface
the cold realities of truth

Destined to fail
we push ever onward
failing to acknowledge our limitations
or our own abilities

Tears come unbidden
deep in the night
where they can be hidden from sight
Lies find their way home

When the sun sheds warmth upon this earth
and things begin to grow
will it sprout new shoots
or will it weather and die?


Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.
