I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

Up, Up and Away

Sometimes we get so excited
that our wings start to flutter,
and we no longer touch the ground.
We start floating just a little,
and don't even realize it.
Then imagine our surprise
when something knocks us to the ground.
They say things happen for a reason,
I believe this to be true.
Sometimes we need grounded,
to remind us where we came from.
But just as importantly,
sometimes we need to float,
to remind us where we are going.
