Watershed moment

Before, after, her demise

Happiness, sorrow

~ Being Human


 

“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

Family tree stands tall

Some branches no longer exist

Shoots of new ones, little ones

Crucible of thought

The unanswered question, why?

Darkness envelopes

~ Sacrifice 


~ Sacrifice 
My love has nowhere to go

No destination 

Held fast within my being

My very core 

Trapped…unseen
Blessed was I 

With the capacity to love

To give without thought

To surrender self,

Receiving naught
Still, love grew old

Took its last breath, repose

And laden is the heart

With yesteryear thought…
And Cupids cruel, cruel, dart.

~ Soul Searching


In a parallel universe     

My loved ones still guide

Though somewhere beyond the

Ether, they reside
I Am a composite of all

That came before me

Accepting both good and bad

That within I see
Thought breaks conscious boundary

“Introspection sets any soul free”

And life, life is so fleeting

It demands crystal clarity.

~ Your Shinning Star


~ Your Shinning Star
I carried a pocket full of dreams

Some slipped through faltered seams

But still I carried on, permanent failure

Was not an option:
We’ve all hit rock bottom

Sinking dreams and all

The challenge is to rise

When weakened by the stall
The stall has a purpose

Shows us who we really are

We either live in reality

Or still, wish upon that falling star…
I’ve never caught a falling star

Have any of you?

Just believe in yourself

That is where your star shines through.
