Warning! Warning!
Emotions seen in the mirror
Are more often than not
Harsher,
      Uglier,
          And more RutHleSs
Than they first appear!
Yes, you have been warned
What you see isn’t always what you get
Take a seat, buckle up, we’re  on the emotional roller coaster
Be careful now…. don’t get your cheeks wet!

To the left you see a young girl
Happy as can be
Ah…. but don’t let her smiles fool you
The cuts on her arms, scars on her heart… can’t anyone see..?!?
And to the right we have a young boy, folks
He’s the young athlete, all-around team player
But beneath that uniform, hidden by smiles
One will find unnecessary bruises under there

You see these invisible masks these children are wearing?!?
Not one race or economic status…. not smart or “dumb”
But all these children unknowingly unite together 
To cover up their pain…. to allow themselves to be NuMb
Unable to escape the source
Of their unsung tears
Unable to ask for help
Silenced, not by force, but out of fear

Oh, wait, a second folks…… 
A little more, we’re almost through 
For as we travel along Childhood Memory River
Oh I have a SuRpRiSe for YOU!
Take a look around,
What is it that you see?!?
Oh, why YES…. MiRrOrS!!
No longer can you deny the pain within you and me!
Take another look,
Stare deep into your eyes
What you find will surely
Take you by surprise!
Do you remember those masks t
Those children were wearing?!?
Remember that silent cry for help
That their little hearts were singing?!?
Why that was YOU
Many years ago
Forced to wear this mask
Your pain you weren’t allowed to show
But there is one thing
That we all neglected to do
We forgot to take off our masks
Their removal is long overdue
The time has now come, folks,
For us to ACCEPT our past
We survived the initial pain
Albeit reminders will surely last
No longer shall we be held prisoner
By demons from long ago
I invite you all to join me today
Honor your inner child and let GO!
S/he didn’t suffer in silence
For all those years
For you to live until your old
Just to still hide from the tears
So join me now
As our ride comes to an end
Let us take off our masks together
And watch your hearts begin to mend  
Please, folks, stay seated 
No pushing as you depart
One last thing before you go
Before you judge someone else….  remember they, TOO, have a heart!

Enjoy the rest of your days
But do not come back for your masks
In order to LIVE a full life
We must acknowledge that the past is the past…….

I sit here in solitude
Oh but I am not alone
For the curse of a poet
Has plagued me
Since I exited the womb
A poet’s curse
A curse I was bound by since the beginning
Such a curse states that a poet,
A writer,
Shall NEVER be left in solitude
Such a person can be the last being on this planet
But no…..
Never will they be alone
For their thoughts
Ah, yes, their thoughts
Shall forever keep them company
And the words,
The words that come more than a few
Why the poet shall be forever BlEsSeD
With an abundance of words
Never shall they suffer from a lack of
For when the day comes
(And it will for EVERY poet…)
In which they feel as though they have
No
Words
Left
The day when they feel as if
They’ve hit a poetic WaLl
This day is when the poet MUST
Put pen to paper and WrItE!!!
Because a poet never TRULY suffers from
Writers block
No…..
A poet,
A TRUE poet,
Just simply finds themselves
Overwhelmed
With too many WoRdS racing through their head
Ahhh, yes….. 
The poet’s curse…..
Since time began man has asked
*The poet’s curse……
Is it a hidden blessing…?!?
Or, rather….is it truly a curse?*
The answer to this ancient question
Lies somewhere deep inside of YOU
Within the innermost thoughts
And heart
Of a poet…..

I want a love that is eternal and everlasting
A love that will outlive Father Time
A love that is RICH in inspiration 
A love that encourages my very rhymes
I yearn for a love
Like my grandparents had
Through sickness and health
Through the good times and bad
I am searching for a love
Where ‘forever’ isn’t just a WORD
And after you say “I DO”
There are no regrets afterward
I pray for a love that is real
A love that encourages me to feel secure
A love in which I KNOW
That NO MATTER WHAT we *will* endure
I desire a love that doesn’t lie
A love that continually grows
I pray for my heart to have wisdom
Shall I discover such a love, I pray I’ll know 
I am yearning for a love
That will see me through my pain 
A love that is unpredictable 
A love that’s both CrAzY and sane
I long for a love that is patient
During times when life gets  tough
A love that will forever feel
That MY LOVE is exactly ENOUGH
I dream of an unknown love
A love that doesn’t see DIVORCE as a solution
A love that is willing to go the extra mile
A love that exists out of pure devotion
I want a love that is eternal and everlasting
A love that will outlive Father Time
A love that is RICH in inspiration 
A love that encourages my very rhymes

I search and search for such a love
But I search to no avail
Now I sit here beginning to wonder 
Could such a perfect love even be REAL..?!?

I absolutely LOVE this and HAD to share!!!!! 😀

Poe

WE HAVE MOVED: WWW.POETRY.WRR.NG

Though I be
An unpublished poem,
Novel yet unwritten,
Very much undefined,
And word unspoken
Still I am
A symbol of hope!

Though I be
A rough diamond,
Gold unrefined,
Pool unstirred,
Wet clay in potter’s hand
Still I am
A symbol of hope!

I tell you;
In wait sits the world,
With earnest expectation,..
Waiting for my name to be written
In its blank pages!
For I still am
A symbol of hope!
