She Wants To Be Loved

Empty Arms

She wants to be loved

Nothing more

Nothing less

Simply loved

Not complex

But getting beyond complexity

In a place full of embrace

Her presence

No one faced

Every twitching arm

Compels her to leap for joy

Then crash in sorrow

For her actions

Go unmatched

She wants to be loved

Nothing more

Nothing less

Simply loved

Nothing complicated

Just understand

She’s been hurt

Slightly jaded

Though still capable of

Giving perpetually

Of herself

Knowing her worth

Despite the neglect

Searching for one

To gift her respect

She wants to be loved

Nothing more

Nothing less

Simply loved

Nothing difficult

Longing to be held


Chest to chest

To fall in the arms of other

To feel safe and secure

Knowing that her insecurities

Will not be ridiculed

Longing to breathe in

The life that she exhales

Building truth

On the Rock that prevails

Love you, Be Blessed!






Time, the great illusionist!

It is said so often, time is the greatest, yet the most unappreciated gift that we have. As kids we think we have all the time in the world. As we get older, it becomes evident that, that is not the case. Still ,we waste.

And it’s funny in a not so haha kind of way. When we have it to spare, we don’t use it. In fact, oft; we spend the most time on what is least relevant. But time runs out. This eye opener forces us to see beyond the smoke and mirrors that have been center stage for most of our lives.

This new found reality causes us to do all that we can to make time stand still. We try to make a lifetime of memories in moments, when we should have been capturing those moments in our lifetime. We try to hold back the hands of time to cram in our would have,  could have, should haves. But that is not life, and time has never lost a battle.

The smartest people in the world learn from their mistakes, and those of others. I beg of you to learn from mine. Spend quality time with your family and friends. You never know when time will lift its hands in victory.

Love you to life, be blessed,  be wise!
