Give me your weary
And give me your poor.
That’s what this country
Stood for,
Not building a wall.
It wasn’t for the rich
And affluent to come here,
Although we welcomed them too, but the men and women
Who had nothing
But a hope and a dream
To build a new life.
A new land for all....
America.
Now she has closed her doors
And looked away.
That which made her great
Is no more.
And I understand there are things to fear and rules
To be made clear.
Yet where did her
Compassion go?
That’s what made her great.

When you loose your love
You can never get that back.
Even if they are
Right in front of you.
It’s like they died.
Say a rosary
And a mass for them.
They are never
Coming back.

You throw people away
Like they are paper dolls.
With no thought of who they were to you.
And I wonder
How you can discard me
Like I’m a paper doll.
When everything you are
Has come from me thus far.

Man fuck my English!
Do I make you feel something?
That’s what counts.
Man fuck my content!
Does it move you?
That’s what counts.
I may never be Yeats
But I’ll always stay
On your mind.

Walk.
Walk away.

I love you, so it’s hard.
But I love me more.

Nows are made up of yesterdays.
And everything we go through,
Everything we live
Becomes just a dream of the past.
Make sure you can smile
At yesterday
So today you can live free.

I thought 2018 was crap
But here comes 2019
To give me the slap.
I’m loosing hope
Fast.
That my life can turn around
This past.
Yet I hold fast...
I hold fast.

Any words penned
Will always have meaning
To someone.
The written word
Will never die.
It will go on long after
We are no more.
The power words have!
To out live us all.
Words are the spirits
That drive this world
Of love and hate.
Of endearment
Of hope and bitterness too.
Words carry magic
To transform us,
To uplift us
And to condemn us too.

There is an overflow
Of sadness in me.
The tears run down my face
And I don’t even realize
I cry.
Thee is an overflow
Of happiness in me.
It comes bubbling up
And overwhelms me,
I can’t contain it
And I don’t realize
I laugh.
To feel is better
Than to feel nothing.
This is life.

A woman feeds you
With her body
As you take sustenance
From her.
She feeds you
With her soul
And makes you feel whole.
A woman softens the blows
That this life can bring.
She’s comfort
Like balm on parched skin.
A woman is God’s idea of love.

Am I blind, when I turn
My eyes?
Or is it that I don’t want to see it?
I don’t want to see your ruin.
You think I don’t see
All the things you’ve proven,
But I do.
I turn my eyes,
It hurts to see
Who you really are.

The loss of you is like
Putting my hand in the fire
And holding it there.
Pain searing my soul
But I keep it there
As if to pass some test.
I just close my eyes
And say it will be ok
Through the pain.
Before you know it,
I’m numb.

I ask myself, how did I make it
Through all this muck?
I made it through.
Although I don’t feel anything anymore.
And there’s nothing I really want.
All the desires of my life
We’re simply drowned out
From all the little disappointments
All my sorrows and hot tears.
They stung my heart.  
Especially you.
You who were supposed to love me,
And be everything to me.
You let me down with your harshness and lack.
I let myself down, I think,
Believing in you.
And now, it doesn’t matter anymore.
A lifetime of hurt.

To children that think
We don’t love them:
Can you ever understand
My love?
You were inside of me
And although you are
On your own now,
You still and always will
Reside inside my heart.
I cannot measure who to love more
Between all of you.
I love you all in different ways
And for so many different reasons.

Suck it up.
That’s what they always said
When I was picking up my vomit
From the floor.
Just suck it up.
I was only four.
I’m still sucking it up...
All the muck.

The mirror speaks back to me
And I ponder
Where did all the years go?

Yes. It’s hard as a woman to age and get old.
You often wonder if you still have “it”,
And what is “it”?
It takes a long time to find “it”.
“It” is you, your essence, your soul.
Because we never really
Get old.
And when you discover that,
Then you are free.
What people say and what
They think doesn’t matter anymore.
What matters is how you feel
Inside...
I feel beautiful.

Why did I make this room
Full of memories?
For it only hurts my soul
To look back.
There is no reminiscing
Of what was
There is only what is.

This is my father.

For he carried me
For many years,
And I respect him
Till the end.
And although he may not know
Who I am today,

You cannot love these marks
On my body...
These scars
Because you did not help to make them;
Twas another mans’ mark.
Which is why
You should not plunder
Nor even ask why?
Some things are best
Left alone.

We walked today
In our own little world
And that was ours
No one can take that away.
We told each other fables
And tall tales.
We laughed and we lived
Inside our eyes.
It was a good day...
Indeed.

Your pictures as if they were mine,
As if that smile was for me
And me alone.

What isn’t mine....
Pillaging, Pilfering, Plundering,

Your presence is like balm
Rubbed on my parched soul.
You soothe me
And your laughter fills me.
I have been so empty
For so long.
When you smile
I see everything that is good
In this world
And I can smile too.
I love you.. Hope you never leave.

You are in my horizons
And In my space
Yet so far away
I cannot touch you.
And I miss you.
Time goes by
Yet I never see you
And we will never get
This time back.
We will never come here again.

Will my words live to posterity?
So many words
That I have written
Filled with all my life’s’ burdens
And happiness.
Will the words still ring true
For you in your heart,
When mine no longer beats?
I would like to think so.
Alas, I would never know
Yet I think yes.
The feelings I express
Will always remain for posterity.
