and i’m wide awake
so many thoughts ยป none interesting
leaving me bored and reading
past future work now modern real
no longer needing my voice
everyone’s found the way
to find it within
it’s always and all ways been
and now it’s all the rage
finding peace the millennial way
knows the darkness matches the light
and evolution eclipses violence
except in the darkest of we
as We Stand Together
rejecting the ways of death
right here right now

as “mom”


as “mom” I think my heart beats no more to fix the auto corrected words I don’t like, like “I” vs. my preferred “i”, sigh, and initial capitalization, why?

only if it’s NECESSARY, should any script include extra shifts as the efficient use of logarithmic schemes boldly go best tangentially free, right?

i’m so, no, i’m SOOOOO grateful my daughter is comfortable with the distance i feel she can put between us (yes, even when we’re in the same room), yet she still maintains perfect connection to my lost soul wandering earth. as a youngster, it is good to have the confidence independence gives you even when the daily scene of life is a perpetual routine, patently, yet not always nor in all ways perfectly, secure, as we have, gratefully, learned together.

i am honored to watch the growth of my daughter into womanhood; these next two years will be powerful for her.

figure it out


figure it out
the way we speak
those pieces of thoughts
we choose to share
sometimes lost

bring on the battle talk
thinking of conflict over resolution
i remember the moment i chose for

i know

love wins



No Words


Even as the thoughts fill my head,
I have no words to share.

Thoughts huge and grand,
Yet, I have no words to share.

My thoughts have no true meaning
As I just lay here in my bed,
I’ve got no words to share.

Thoughts without actions to empower their force,
Leave me with no words to share.

Challenge the sickness that led to here,
Still finds no words to share.

‘Oh, wait,’ the past calls, ‘we’ve done plenty to share,’
And, maybe, those stories may be words to share.
