A Mother’s Heart

Image

From the very beginning, something changes within

Feelings & emotions new & difficult to understand begin

As a tiny life begins to grow within, you begin to see

It’s not just about you anymore, it’s now mainly about that little baby

 

As your body changes & your hormones rage out of control

You still know that this life inside you is now a part of your soul

Rough nights, so little sleep, cravings, and wait that’s just the beginning

As the end draws near, your head is just spinning

 

The awaited day inches ever closer & then it finally arrives

As the pain takes over, you begin to wonder how you’ll survive

For some it’s just a few hours & for some, labor goes on for days

And then comes that moment that completely takes your breath away

 

After the doctor has done a quick look over & cleaned up your little one

Your baby is placed into your arms & now you see who has your heart won

Looking upon an angel’s face, touching their tiny hands & ever so little feet

Vowing from that moment on that you’ll protect them from all dangers they will meet

 

As they grow, each phase presents great challenges & wondrous blessings

There are moments when you want to scream, but moments too that make you sing

From the late night feedings to the terrible twos, and beyond

You also remember their first baseball game & helping them get ready for prom

 

It doesn’t matter whether your child is two or fourty-two

You know in your heart that there’s nothing you wouldn’t do

To see your son or daughter healthy, successful, & happy

The love within that you feel for them is easy for all to see

 

How truly magnificent it is that someone so small can mean so much

That teaches you the meaning of unconditional love from the very first touch

And while it’s never really easy to one day let them make their own fresh start

You know that no matter the distance, they’ll always know they’re in their mother’s heart

A Request From a Sensitive Heart

Image

When watching a movie I have seen so many times

I still cry when it gets to the emotional scenes

It was only a harmless joke, so my friend did say

Yet it still got to me in such a profound way

 

I often hear phrases like, “Why does that bother you so much?”

And another common one is, “Don’t take things so seriously.”

Berated for wearing my heart on my sleeve is a common occurrence

It’d be nice if now & then people instead offered respect & reassurance

 

I’m not necessarily asking you to walk on eggshells around me

My skin isn’t that unbelievably thin, I am not as fragile as I seem

So don’t hold the truth from me because you think it’s more than I can take

Highly sensitive I might be, but know this tender heart of mine won’t break

 

I just ask that if I take something more to heart than you might

To not put me down, to not sit there & call me weak

My sensitive nature isn’t really a bad thing after all

It helps me help others, once they’re ready to break down their wall

 

My compassionate nature & sensitivity go hand in hand

I am not ashamed of that, nor of who I am

We’re all made the way we were meant to be

So please stop trying to toughen my skin, stop trying to change me

I’m An American

Image

The land of the brave & home of the free

That is what you are to many, including me

Across vast & might oceans and distant seas

Some see us as a land of greed & shallow vanity

 

It is true that our nation has its troubles, that’s easy to see

And there are plenty I know who are ready & willing to flee

Fed up with our government & changing all we’re meant to be

A lot that happens here is troubling, on that I can agree

 

But there is still good to be found in our wondrous country

Within many of its citizens who still believe in love & chivalry

And look upon it’s breathtakingly beautiful scenery

From its vast & mighty mountains to its luscious  greenery

 

This is my home land, now & forever more, don’t you see?

Ashamed of certain people, perhaps, but this is still my country

Born & raised here, this is where my friends are & my family

An American now & it is what I shall forever be

My Tribute to Wisconsin

Image

From the land of the frozen tundra, I say hello

Where cheese is made & beer does freely flow

Born & raised in this place they call Wisconsin

This is where many of my friends are & also my kin

 

There are times when I dream of moving away

Because of the many cold & snowy days

But in the end, I find it difficult to leave this place

It’s like Cheers here, so many know my name & face

 

Those I hold most dear to my heart live here

So away from my home land, I am not ready to steer

And hey there are some beautiful sights here to see

Like spring time in Wisconsin, nature in its most wondrous glory

 

Come with me to Little Green and swim for awhile

Or let us go the Menomonee River Parkway & walk a few miles

See the ducks as they fly over Devil’s Lake

Or gaze upon the glorious sunrises in Cottage Grove as you wake

 

From Milwaukee all the way up to Green Bay & beyond

This is my home & of it I am quite fond

And even if I should ever from this place depart

Wisconsin will always be where I got my start

 

And know what no matter where I might be

I will always be loyal to my sports teams

Green & gold run deep within my veins each & every day

As does my love for the Brew Crew, no matter how bad we play

 

There’s just something about this place I call home

I have had plenty of chances to leave & yet from here I won’t roam

Perhaps someday I will find the strength to leave

But as you can see now, my love for my home is on my sleeve

 

Wisconsin, how I really do love you

Anyone who knows me knows this to be true

And as it has from the very start

So shall it always be that it has my heart

Thank You For Your Support

We all have ways in which we express who we are

Some design buildings, others dance, and there some who bake

Many are the ways in which we can showcase our thoughts & feelings

For me, it is through the art of song & poetry

 

I talk a lot, anyone who knows me knows this to be true

But there are times when I can’t seem to find the words to speak aloud

When I go over it a thousand times in my mind & words fail me

This is when I let the words instead flow from my fingers instead of my mouth

 

There is something about writing, or in this case typing the words within my mind

And while the words that form don’t always rhyme as typical poetry might

They always somehow aptly tell all who will read it exactly what I am trying to convey

It’s been an outlet for me for so many years, a way to truly express myself

 

I don’t know if my words will ever grace libraries and bookstores

But I do know that they have reached thousands of eyes

And touched at least as many hearts over the years

So even if I never make a dime for my talent, I still feel richer than I can say

 

I share what I have to say, how I feel, and what I think so that you might better know me

And also because I hope to inspire, instill courage, and to encourage people to follow their dreams

No matter what you aspire to do, no matter who you are, I hope that you know you’re important

Though there are many who read my words that I will never in person meet, still you do matter

 

One of my purposes in life is to love others & to show that love in all the ways that I can

His words have taught me to reach out to the world around me

But even before I came to know & love my wondrous God above

Love for mankind always had its place within my heart

 

Through acts of kindness, friendship, song, and poetry is how I tell my story

And it’s how I show you all how much I care for each and every one of you

May each of you that reads this know that I am blessed by your presence

Your support for what I do means more to me than I can ever truly say

 

But let me do the best that I can to show you how I feel with my words

Though no amount of cliches, witty phrases, or sentiments will ever really suffice

There is one thing I’d like to say though & may it touch your hearts as your support touches mine

This simple word can make a major impact & may it do just that now: Thank you

Don’t Blend In, Be Proud to Stand Out

Image

Surrounding the world is a thick mist & dark shadow

It threatens to take over, suppressing all light & hope

Hate, cruelty, & greed have such power, it tries to sway all to follow

It has the capability to leave a soul feeling nothing but empty & hollow

 

It defiantly smirks & tells hope, joy, & love that its time here is done

That instead it shall takes its place among the hearts of men

Already it has begun to corrupt hearts once noble & true

Seeking to destroy each & every soul, including me & you

 

Promising power, riches, fame, & fortune to all who succumb

Not revealing its true intentions, to win our favor & then let us destroy one another

Will you fight against the evil that appears to have the upper hand?

Will you with those brave enough be willing to take a stand?

 

Upon our fortresses, we must gather & fight with all that is within us

Hold our shields over our hearts & resist the urge to give in to it

Standing tall together with our heads held up high

Letting society’s darkness know it will never truly win, no matter how hard it does try

 

It tells us we must quietly blend in, to give in to its propaganda

To believe it, to not see what it is really trying to accomplish

Divide & conquer is & has always been its true goal

To be our master forever more is its desired role

 

Diets, plastic surgery, designer clothes, & other frivolous things

Do not stand out, just blend in, give up your identity

But then we become what it wants us to be, clones of one another

Forgetting that we are bound together as sisters & brothers

 

So to you all I say this now, do not give in to its false promises

Do not let it divide us as it’s been trying relentlessly to do

Stand tall & be proud of the individual that you were born to be

And never forget that within each of us is love, hope, joy, & loyalty

I Want To Say Thank You

Image

Some stresses in my life feel difficult to defeat

But know that head on my problems I will meet

I will stumble, fall, & sometimes feel pretty low

But in the end, I will rise each time & be ready to go

 

Head held high, facing the challenges ahead

The struggles I face & the demons within will not see me dead

God, be my constant & my strength every single day

With You beside me, I know I will always find my way

 

Even during my darkest days, I don’t lose sight

Of all the hope & joy in my life that shines a great light

I don’t thank You nearly enough for all that I have, for all that You give

So right now, I would like to say thank You for the life You’ve given me to live
