Four Letters…Well, You Know

pretty-girl-covering-her-mouth

I’ve had a revelation I must admit
Sometimes life makes me feel like…well, you know

Actions of others can make me sick
Then you have those that act like a…well, you know

Yes, some are just down on their luck
Things could be better if more gave a…well, you know

Politicians, please get with the program
Countries in disaster, do you even give a…well, you know

I try to see the glass half full, all going well
But it can overwhelm me, just give up, Oh…well, you know©

Will Love Win?

shutterstock_570688267

A blatant disregard for emotion, love and devotion
This is how you see me, and that all I want is to be free
Look into my eyes and know, I really have no desire to go
If being apart is your need, nothing left but to beg and plead
Holding on to all we have built, but I’m left with so much guilt
Times we’ve spent, the care you’ve shown, don’t want to be alone
But aparently it’s not enough, because life is cruel and world is tough
And if we aren’t in it through thick and thin, then the darkness will win
But hope is strong and I believe love can prevail, or perhaps it is to no avail
So, if we go our seperate ways, just know, you’ll be in my heart for all my days©

World Is My Stage

black & white studio portrait of female magician

The world is my stage and life is my trick
A magician’s hat and a magic wand stick
The wave of my hand, blink of thee eyes
Then I appear in this perfect of disguise

Cannot see my true face or how I appear
Don’t want you to know what it is I fear
My life is a farce, nothing is as it seems
Nothing is perfect or existing in dreams

But curtain’s pulled back, I am exposed
Nightmare unleashed, everyone knows
Smoke, mirrors and sleight of hands too
But nothing covers what I am from you

I stand on the stage, acting out my feat
My audience observes, sees this deceit
Heckles and boos, tells me I’m a fraud
Reaffirming to me that I am so flawed

Cannot hide who I am or how I suffer
Depression is hard, know I’m tougher
Won’t play a part, I put down my cape
No chains keep me, I know I’ll escape

I call for volunteers, come to the stage
The first is patience to counteract rage
And second is humor, helps me to cope
Finally, love when I need to find hope©

She Danced

danceleapbeach09

She danced to the tune of her own song
Always one who needed to be so strong
Yet she loved this life with great fervor
Learning the steps not just an observer

She circled her days on the tip of her toes
Never gave up when others would oppose
Sometimes she’d trip, losing balance, fall
Picked herself up, wouldn’t give up at all

She would have days that were very dark
But others came to help give her a spark
Held her up and joined her hand to hand
They knew dancing makes many a demand

She also had days she’d fly through the air
Was light as a feather and had no despair
These were the times she held onto tight
Giving her confidence to keep up the fight

She knew that when the last dance played
Dance card full, she had even just swayed
Journey so brief and dance shoes all worn
She’d enjoyed each step, don’t you mourn©

In You

StuckInARut

Your warm embraces
Wrapped in this tenderness 
A restful peace is found within
The fabric of life that entwines us
You cover all of me and will never let go
Soft is the love that carresses all of me in you©

Laugh A Little

l

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ~Audrey Hepburn

It is easy to get into a discouraged frame of mind these days. Just turn on the news for two minutes or open your web browser. We are bombarded with negativity! So find the humor in a moment, make somebody smile or laugh at yourself. Life is too short to spend it being sad. I hope I can give you a little chuckle for your day. ~Mac

Don’t you hate…

Remember Me

5063591
When I find my final resting place and life on earth is done
Reflections of accomplishments and the races I have won
I hope that I will find my journey was not done in vain
Most of all wishing I have not caused too much pain
For those that I’ve inflicted, the sorrow that I feel
When the time is right I hope that you can heal
Life can be so fleeting but memories they last
Cherish the good ones we shared in the past
Most of all remember how we are in love
I know I will as I look down from above©
