Can guess

How much strength

You may possess

But if you observe

Your everyday movements

You’ll see for yourself just how

Strong you are, because you are here

Showing up for the journey each day

See, you’re not only strong but you’re brave too

just a suggestion


You have


Many are great

Others are greater

Some will blossom and grow

Others will birth new ones still

Love your ideas for themselves

When it comes to having ideas

Allow yourself to be a breeding ground

that’s nice


Could be

That you are

Quite a good friend

People speak highly

Of you in glowing terms

They enjoy time spent time with you

You could be laughing or crying

And they will want to do it again

Nice to know this before your eulogy

Good Humor


We heard

It coming

How far away

Can we find our cash

How long had it been since

We bought ice cream from a truck

Once out there, we were not alone

The neighbor and her two kids were there

And everyone got something on a stick

oh my word


Gave us


When she performed

She turned many heads

A treat for eyes and ears

The motion in her ocean

Validated the existence

Of people’s prurient interests

And of course, got her thrown in jail as well
