A Mother's Heart

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…

A Request From a Sensitive Heart

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, “…

I'm An American

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…

My Tribute to Wisconsin

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…

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 …

Don't Blend In, Be Proud to Stand Out

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…

I Want To Say Thank You

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…

We Are Works of Art

All that I am & all that you are is poetry

We are works of art for all to see

The way we move, the way our minds operate

What wonders we think of & create


God is the great creator, the one who designed us

How we wove us together, all the angels made such a fuss

How like He, we have been wonderfully…

Labels Are Made For Cans, Not People

Labels can be found on water bottles & soup cans

But all too often they are found on our fellow man

We have all been guilty of judging others

Though instead we should love our sisters & brothers


That girl in the colorful outfit dancing…

The Girl You Always Knew

For most of my life, I have had the same dream

But it’s not as crazy as to some it might seem

For there are many who are on the same page

Who long to be performing their songs up on stage


What has kept me from accomplishing my goals is fear

Fear of forgetting the words or of my voice failing all who could…

Happy Birthday, Mike!

On this day in the good year of 1982

My brother Mike was born, so today he’s 32

I would like to take just a few moments to say

To my younger brother, Happy Birthday!


We haven’t always gotten along, many know this to be true

But it hasn’t changed for one moment just how much I love you

For all you have…

Ode to Onyx

When I saw a certain black kitten, he ensnared my heart

I knew he was to be a part of our little family from the start

The name that I came up for him was one that I thought fits

Being such a black beauty, he deserved the name Onyx

Stunning, agile, full of energy, & often ready to pounce

Quite comical he can be…

Ode to Lucy

Here is an ode to our three month old puppy

She is very playful & full of so much energy

Where are my manners, I must make an apology

Let me introduce you to the lovable & rambunctious…

Called to Love

On this day, we celebrate the wonderful thing called love

To start, I want to thank the good Lord above

For all the adoration & compassion He gives each day

And for how He blesses me each day more than I can say

This day isn't just for lovers, but for all who are bonded together

For those who don't just share in…

Ms. Hyde

There is a song by Halestorm called Mz. Hyde and I found that I could identify with it a bit. Living with Bi-Polar disorder, well sometimes I am Ms. Hyde and sometimes I’m Dr. Jekyll, just depends on the day, sometimes the moment. And, one really never knows in advance which girl you will be dealing with, including myself. ;) Dealing with Schizophrenia…

The World of Technology

Oh what a wondrous thing it is, this thing we call technology

From advancements in science to keeping us in touch with those overseas

It has helped us as a race do so many great things, surely that's easy to see

Though I also believe that many have become too dependent on it, even me

As it is, I am online right now instead of…

I'm Ready For Spring

Spring may only be weeks away

Yet it feels like winter is here to stay

I’m trying to be happy about this snowy season

But I’m having difficulty finding even one reason


The cold air makes my skin so very dry

It’s become cracked & so painful that I want to cry

I got my snow on Christmas Day

Now I beg…

Love Shouldn't Be Bought, But Merely Given

Join me for a little pre-Valentine’s Day rant

Though before I begin, let me set the record straight

I’m not single, bitter, & jaded, though I once was

Happily taken am I, but my views on this day are ones I won’t recant


My view is and has always been this about love & devotion

We should show one another how…

Family Means Everything To Me

From parents, brothers & sisters, & nieces & nephews

To aunts & uncles, grandparents, cousins, and all the way through

Family is precious, each & every single member mean so much to me

No matter the distance or how close the relationship may or may not be


Not a single day goes by when I don’t think of my…

Music Tells My Story

When chaos surrounds my every moment

And I have been subjected to loss & torment

Thoughts & emotions flood my veins

There must be a way to express my anger, sorrow, & pain


That’s when I turn to a wondrous thing called music

It helps me tell my story, no matter whether I’m happy or heartsick

I can…
