Someone’s Shoes


to walk in someone’s shoes

garners the fact that they

are extremely different 

than you, that they

have the same rights of others

to be who they want 

an individual, a family

of which they define

as living their lives 

just as we have

there is no need to seem 

intrusive or assume

we are like them for

we understand each

are individuals without

need for constant 

explanation just knowing

we all have our 

own style and preferences 

-Jennie Nawrocki 



confusion ain’t

nothing new

for things

forever seeming

tied together 

in tight knots

blocking realities

project begins 

decifering which

to release

some with more

effort than others

eventually gives way

ending layers

never meant

to be mixed together 

-Jennie Nawrocki 

Being Positive 


find it within 

the ability 

to see beyond 

atrocities experienced 

for they can hold

the mind

into a depressing realm

that hinders

functioning completely 

for living with

the learned triage

in extreme conditions 

doesn’t apply

to everyday conversation 

and person to person interactions

for once left

difficult circumstances 

the average man on the street

gives an element 

of vulnerability 

to those around

who want to

have that friendly

demeanor allowing

relationships to develop 

outside of 

being an acquaintance 

-Jennie Nawrocki 



optimism once came freely

able to know that

there would be something 

not more worse

than this moment 

however presently

these have become 

crept into our daily lives

shedding off these

layers of issues 

leeches among us

our emotions find

something to

look forward to

-Jennie Nawrocki 



it’s only a matter of when

taken completely 

for choices dissolved

long ago

dupped on purpose 

will always 

be combined 

with endearments 

a fish in a sea of hooks 

plays asteroids 

always doubting

intentions for

we both knew

success was

a dream

-Jennie Nawrocki 



privacy some

would equate 

to piracy 

for when details 

based on trust

were really taken

from you

when repeated

there is no mystery 

suspense of what

will happen

for the whole

of the person

was taken away

-Jennie Nawrocki 



spouses, wives

significant others

replaced by imagination 

couldn’t change

realities of the day 

that respect shown

for one part

is extended to you

and your love

commitment made

with husbands

has always been

understood entirely 

-Jennie Nawrocki 



can’t change

what we

have been through

knowing who

remains strong inside 

a person who

never forgot 

how much

you allowed

me into your lives

really incomprehensible 

however completely 

forever humbled

by the gesture 

-Jennie Nawrocki
