Process of Reclaimation

Understanding you seek

It’s somewhere deep inside

In moments when you’ve cried

Feeling so lost

Because you’re all alone

And you prayed to find

Some peace within your mind

To calm your heart

And to remove the doubt

Yet, if you can believe

You’ll find hope as you breathe

Deep, deeper still

And you choose to allow

For in that choice you make

You’ll feel resistance break

As you center

Asking for a Friend

Oh, wicked, wicked food

Why do you tempt me so

I’ve weight needing to go

You’re everywhere

I plan for healthy meals

Then a friend says let’s eat

Hey, I deserve a treat

And I cave in

I might as well be friends

With the choices I make

Just one more bite to take

And buy new clothes

By Design

We all have the chance to

Make a life worth living

Of loving and giving

With every breath

Participation calls

Each time you roll the dice

From the cake, cut a slice

You’re in the game

Moment Um

The young yearn to grow up

Elderly long for youth

Our choices hold the truth

To happiness

But when we make the choice

To enjoy where we are

Holds more power by far

For happiness

Party Purrfect

They’re shaking in their boots

Those wide-eyed little cats

Cause Shery bought some hats

For them to wear

Now, she sees it proper

That they dress up you see

For cookies served with tea

Tablecloth pressed

You never know what’s next

With happy little girls

If they like gloves and pearls

Quick, run and hide
