A poem from 2009

I’m asking you for answers,
But I know I’ll just get nothing,
I don’t know why I bother,
Thinking you’re the man of the hour.

I remember the days,
Where we laughed and played.
It was simpler, easier back then,
When we didn’t have the pressure.

Fairytales and fantasies,
Were the thoughts that I had.
None of this about the future,
It was all about the here and now.

Free willed and fun loving,
It made the times so easy.
I miss the days of you and me.
I miss the days of worriless dew.

Why can’t we just go back,
And forget this burning pain?
Ignore the tears that fall,
Licking the wounds that remain.

Back to the days of hope,
The days of smiles,
The days of dreams.

Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day to all the wonderful ladies out there – to the ones that I have the pleasure to know, call friends and family (who lift me up each and every day), to the ones who inspire me from afar and to the ones who fought to get us here in the first place.

Thank you!

Let’s continue to encourage and help each other. We have enough hurdles out there without adding more ourselves.

And to the men who cheer us on (you’re awesome too), thank you!

 

Quote: John Hughes – The Breakfast Club

“Brian: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…

Andrew: …and an athlete…

Allison: …and a basket case…

Claire: …a princess…

John: …and a criminal.

Brian: Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.”
