I am an old-time Rock-N-Roll, Church Gospel, Contemporary Christian; Blue jeans, Poet shirt, Writing geek, Photographer, Artist, Designer, Intellectual Property Rights promoter, Who will give anyone my time of day, Caring about each word you say.
I tend toward the Moderate, Shoot straight down the middle – I love deep, as oceans, wide, Though it has been some years since Someone stood by my side, (All my own;) I can write, edit, publish, design, And you can find me reading Most anytime – my interests Cast wide: run beyond so many lines.
I like going fast – but enjoy Doing things right, taking my time, It is never unusual my words rhyme; I have lived the bad and the swell, More often, I choose good as better… I love so much, so many, And intensely dislike division – I am a U.S. Marine Mom, An American, I will stand; my colors shall not run.
The timeless appeal Of bottomless foundations Leave one another To dredge rivers of hope, need, But still coming between – greed. Advantage follows The stronger needing duties Performed with slim thanks Not often heeding complaints, Or recognizing stolen dreams. The ages roll, roles Still favor some, limit others, There is no parity Equality, an ugly myth Blinding many to problems. If one stands up, out, It may not mean advancement The ceiling rises The walls grow ever thicker But it is not done, over, Time will see the flight The scaling of every height So run, run well, catch the light, Winning brings freedom and delight.
I read an article in American Scholar that inspired this poem. I also picked the word bottomless from a vocabulary list.
I hope this finds you in pleasant moments. I would appreciate your likes, comments, follows, and shares.
Prompt: pick something you read and a random word, create from there.
I reach but let go, time and again. This week I won the Roses. I accomplished unexpected things. Give yourself figurative roses for what you did well.
I finished some paperwork of a mandatory description. I ordered (first time) groceries online and picked them up, saving effort and time. I contacted the insurance company twice to resolve an issue that was a considerable cost. I attempted to empower a friend. I began a routine I hope will strengthen the portions of my body that are causing discomfort and are debilitating. I finished Lore which I mentioned I was reading in an earlier post.
I am in the mood to give this site up, but I am not one to bail on things I start. I could go; I have to have some serious debate with myself over it.
Is there something you are finding hard to continue? You realize your unique combination of skill and intellect is a given no one else can match or share. You have purpose and reason; everything for someone depends on you. Think before you quit; remember, believe in yourself and what you contribute. You are a light for faith, grace, mercy, and love. Hey, though, do not prove it by me or anyone else; you have to be the proof to yourself.
I am just someone ready to stop what I love because it is not enough for good. The whole thing is up in contention for if it will make me feel like it wins Roses.
Completion of tasks Long undone provides a sense Of accomplishment That borders on mystical A release, approbation. Overcoming blocks And procrastination is Difficult to do But when the dam is broken Blessings flow straight into view. Life is a constant Fight against forces that curb Enthusiasm, Restraining creativity Leeching imagination. Breaking through to Rewards and employing faith In God’s continual Love, grace, mercy bestows strength With positive energy To live productively and endure.
