An attempt at poetry

I have never been very much for writing stuff down (kinda makes ya wonder why I have a blog, huh?), but with my little ones growing up so quickly, and the fact I see them infrequently, I figured I better start writing stuff down or else I may miss or forget something important along the way, so I will try to post something here every day.

Today's entry....


I added a couple of verses and changed it goes

I Stand

I stood in the daylight.
Hoping not to be seen.
Afraid to be with all the people.
Who are cruel and mean.

I stood in the nighttime.
Thankful for the peace.
Thankful for the serenity.
Of sleep's sweet release.

I stood in the shadows.
Wondering what I should do.
I stood alone in the shadows
Knowing that I miss you.

I now stand in the daylight
Alone and afraid
Wondering what I'll do now
I thought I "had it made".

I stand alone in the world
But I am not ashamed
I stand alone, enlightened---
By the light of the Torchbearer's flame.

From my friend Ann and her blog. Love ya, girl! You had the wisdom I needed for so long.

I have decided that I deserve to be loved, and am capable of being loved. I also am going to pledge to love myself for the person that I am.

This is so freeing. I can be me now, and it's ok. There is nobody there looking over my shoulder, waiting for me to "mess up", so they can yell at me.


Hi there everyone (all 3 of you)! I have come down sick with a cold with a sore throat and so on.

Makes me want to stay home and eat chicken soup, especially when it is 11 degrees outside.

Not much to report from here. Classes have started, but it is too soon to tell how rough they are going to be. My new job is going well.

I am very tired though. Will be glad to have Monday off.

Hello world....

Not much going on with yours truly at the moment. I like my new job, classes start tomorrow, and everything is more or less right with the world.

More later....
