Lent

Standard

My faithful readers as you know sometimes these poems can be filled with anger and very despondent. In my efforts to get out of these feelings of what has been termed oppression and solitary confinement, resulting in snaps of anger towards anyone and everyone who might get me out of hell or who put in it. Unfortunately not knowing who’s who’s everyone has seen me absolutely scream in frustration and even be ungrateful to those that could release me from my situation. Yelling and denouncing those who seem to be in my way or assuming they were the ones that hurt me. Someone once said you are in big trouble if you can’t tell your enemies from your friends. If trust is something missing from my relationships than my recognizing friends is even worse.

Recently those around me received the worst tirade yet. Without knowing who is who the problem will remain. That is only helpful to those that never want to hear of me again. My regrets and apologies go out to anyone who might have been on my side. This you may have heard of before but my biggest heartache is seeing those who were by my side and leave. Which makes me think when is the next one going to so they are told to go too. It is less heartache for me and them. However with each heartbreak my anger and despondency increases. Creating a cycle that is very unhealthy for anyone around which you may or may not have experienced yet.

Leaving me to question do I stay or do I go? My brain says go but my heart says fix it. How on earth do stand for my rights and still keep my boundaries to prevent what makes me curled up crying or sleeping the entire day?

Trust?

But who?

And we are right back to where we began. So during the time of lent my social standing will be determined. Those who truly love me and are my friends and family maybe revealed or may not but you can guarantee my ability to know how to forge though the next days month or years will be known by mid April. Then maybe my actions won’t look like a tornado screaming at everyone in its path.

What can you do? How can you support or help me? If you really care and really want me to succeed and be mentally, emotionally and physically? If your heart hasn’t completely grown black from my transgressions than be honest and tell me where stand with you and why. It will save me from falling deeper into hell. It will also save you grief of an annoying person barking up the wrong tree so to say and repair a negative part of your life.

With all my heart my plea to you is support me getting healthy again.

Post Cards

Standard

As you may know I have been raising funds for the Royal Council Foundation in order to support less privileged children across the globe. The Foundation provides these children shelter, medical services, nourishment, and education in their home country. Donations are always welcome but here is a way you can support these children without access to their daily needs by buying a postcard.

Who buys postcards these days? Well you of course. Humans still desire that need for a handwritten gesture from a friend, colleague or family member. It says a lot when you see their writing that says come visit, it is fabulous to be done with that project, grandma has finished her cancer treatment and other greetings I am sure you have wanted to say.

This is your chance to aide two birds with a pen, thank a friend and support those in need, all the proceeds going to the Royal Council Foundation. Whether you buy the 4 of them together or a single one you will be bringing happiness and smiles to several faces. Thank you so much in advance for your donation purchase.

surprise no one

Standard

I can’t believe it

My future yesterday

Does not seem the same today

So long I wanted

Self sufficiency

I didn’t want

To be controlled

Now I am alone

And those

At the next table

Tell me

Canceled

I am nothing

Irrelevant

But what about

A husband

A house

A career

Then she sees

Herself in the future

The worst possible way

Sitting alone

In a restaurant

With a bad wig

Not imagining

Life as a old couple

But poor and alone

That ain’t a goal

It just sadness

I don’t even want

Nursing home aides

To care for me

alone leave me alone

Ugh!

Where do you want to retire?

Why does the security

Of the future

Through self-sufficiently

Seem so rewarding

There is no one there

No one

Ugh

I need to re think this
