Die A Log or Life a Log

Life is self-fulfilling

The more you tell yourself

You belong on a shelf

That’s where you are

Change your talk, change your life

Speak where you want to be

Pretty soon, you will see

That’s where you are

Wonder Woman

She was quite the bully

She felt like a zero

She needed a hero

She felt alone

But whom she was hurting

Because she was so sad

From all the pain she had

Was just herself

And when she stopped picking

On others to feel good

She finally understood

She was ready

To learn about loving

Embracing forgiveness

Becoming a witness

To true healing

Have you ever noticed

The face of an athlete

End results lead their feet

They don’t see you

Totally in the zone

The picture in their mind

Is what they hope to find

Chasing the dream

Winter Project

Two treasure-hunting friends

Sift through boxes and bags

Hidden by clothes and rags

Just might be trash

Sorting into three piles

First, keep no matter what

Trash, no ifs ands, or buts

And donations

Stepping back to assess

They barely made a dent

All their energy spent

Happy for now

Sets the stage for the year

Unites us far and near

A common goal

Placing focus on peace

Filling hearts, souls, and minds

Support life of all kinds

With thoughts of love
