Be Healthy


We used to be

A melting pot

Now some call us

A mixed salad

Where each ingredient

Stands out

But nothing was equal

White privilege

Or lettuce dominated

To be true

And honor

All cultures respectfully

We need a new term

Simply put

In a day

Several meals

Could occur

Mixing balances of ingredients

So we are not one

Jumbled dish

But a balanced diet

Where to be healthy

Eat in moderation

Value the rainbow

Of colors

If you must cook

Process as little as possible

For food is best savored

In its natural state

– Jennie Nawrocki

In other words be yourself.




I want to do?

I want to go?

But why?

For yourself?

For someone else?

Who does it help?

How many people does it support?

Just people or environment too?

Maybe even animals benefit?

Could it be tweaked?

Or is it just for family?

Remembering the butterfly effect?

We are not alone?

So I ask who?

-Jennie Nawrocki

The Plan


When formulating

A new start

A new way to

Conduct business

Think of all

The possibilities

Good bad

Or indifferent

For one

Who is thorough

Is the one

Who succeeds

Because they

Can always say

I have a plan

-Jennie Nawrocki

Emotional Roller Coaster


Inside your emotions

Which are increasing

In their intensity

Morphing your

Physical characteristics

Amping energy levels

Even spiking adrenaline

How to proceed

There are times

To give in

And let passions

Run wild

But not every time

For the one who

Controls their emotions

Like volume

On the radio

Doesn’t burn out

Their speakers

During mediation

All the time

A conscientious person

Adjusts it to

Create an atmosphere

Just like you decide

If your emotions

Will ruin the purpose

Of the event

-Jennie Nawrocki



Stay aware

Be present

Find your center

Focus on breathing

For when

Stress builds

Challenges arise

Emotion overwhelms

Outcome unseen

You will

Adapt easily

Listen wholly

Act consciously

Appropriate responses

Brings forth

Error minimized

Along with

Success maximized

-Jennie Nawrocki

Value Education


They spend hours

Finding what you need

Assessing from where

You are strong

Reteaching weak

Back ground knowledge

Even introducing

new units

That build upon

Each other

Whether tiny

Or major

Each lesson

Provides a pathway

Towards success

You must

Invest within

In order

To make

Your future

-Jennie Nawrocki
