Life – The Mystery Unfolds

Life is like a story,
With mysteries to unfold,
Something comes and something goes,
Always accompanied by highs and lows,
With it come problems and solutions galore,
You may rise, but a day will come when you may fall,
You may feel happy but at times you may feel sad,
Sometimes to be true, anger will make you mad;
Sometimes problems may come with no solution, as apparently it may look,
You want to find an answer to happiness by hook or by crook;
You find danger and loneliness lurking at times,
You start to be haunted by thoughts of all kinds,
But sometimes you may find what the answer is, right under your nose,
Why and what are the questions that life often does pose;
Life is difficult and has varied situations,
You may look buoyant and radiant and sometimes very grim,
You may lose sometimes but on the next bend is the win;
Conquer life with a positive attitude,
Every beginning has a destined end,
Follow the path of righteousness and love,
Your journey will transcend into divine peace with blessings from heaven above.

What’s The Difference?

Whats The Difference? long poem

The legato of language and lingo, The dance of diction and dialect — Have you ever considered the difference A little letter or two can effect? Texture of tense, Savor of sense, The nuance in a sentence — What’s really

The very essence of love is uncertain, A relentless thumping of the heart. I must speak to you by such means as they are within my reach. He pierces my soul driving me into madness. I am half agony, half

From My Journals anxiety prose poem

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
