Shadows by Eramis Fontenot

I’m wandering

In your darkness

Thoughts over take me

I’ll surely fall down now

But there is a hand reaching out

This darkness cannot hold me forever

Why do I let myself feel so hopeless?

I’m lost again mapping out where I have been

Too many dead ends to count… where can I go?

This shadow fools me in this endless maze I have created

But I will find the light for I have in the past


Emotions by Kelly Krug

Emotions run deep inside my veins.

Presently being locked up I am able to focus on my

sobriety and take advantage of my solitude.

I know that if I can break free of this atmosphere I can

prioritize my situation and surroundings a whole lot cleaner and

clearer.  I must escape this far fetched escapade and choose a

wiser path.  For the wisdom is awaiting my presence.  And so shall

the grass always be greener…

NO MORE by Amanda Suzanne

I couldn’t fly because my wings were broken,

Thanks to you and things that are unspoken

Tick Tock says the clock,

Can’t turn back time there is not such luck.

As I sit here tears fill my eyes,

To think of how I loved and trusted you

When everything about you was a lie.

You made me feel okay for only a while,

Then you started to hurt me but I was in denial.

I no longer want that feeling,

I do not need to feel that rush.

You ruined my life completely,

Hurting those I love so deeply.

I have started all over fresh and new,

Making amends to those I knew.

I will never give up so you don’t win,

I will never take a hit again!

One Last Time by Kristen Hatcher

I packed a bag for us, are you ready to go Babe?

I know I am.  I’m so excited.  I packed your favorite

Miles Davis album for the boat ride and of course

I got your practice pad & drum sticks.

And we are off!! On the most memorable boat trip ever.

Just you and me.  Holding you carefully in my arms.

Never letting you go, hold onto me tight, cause it might me a bumpy ride.

I’ve prepared your favorite meal, Yep steak and eggs!

That’s right, I’ll never forget.

I’ll never forget your smile, your touch, your kiss, the way you would look at me,

your laugh, the sound of your heartbeat when I would lay on your chest, the way you

would call me your Boogalu and the beautiful memories with our handsome son Mikel.

I’m so grateful to have had you be apart of my life.

You will never leave my heart.

I loved you from the start.

Even though you are no longer here, nothing to fear, I’ll always keep you near.

I thank God today for this boat ride with you and for giving us one last time together.

Then I could hear you say “don’t worry Boogalu, this won’t be the last time.

We will be together again one day soon, until then think about me every time you

look at the moon!

Life comes at you from many angles.  It’s impossible to guarantee anything, as we are not guaranteed each day, each breath and each moment.  People take things for granted, most do.  They get lost in the hustle for concepts driven by societies puppet masters.

It’s when you realize that things you are led to believe matter, rally do not, is when you are free.  Humans are the only creatures on earth who pay rent to each other to live here.  Pay attention.  The meaning of life is simply to live it.  All the stress all the worries are all over portrayed value.  Recognize that true value is you within yourself.

Every breath, every fragrance, every taste and every color…  Somebody somewhere is without and having an entirely different human experience.  Every interaction is what you bring into play.  You make a difference.  The moment your presence engages with another, it is what you do with that moment that changes every moment after.  You can change a mood, change a life in one second.  You can smile and save a life today.  Do not despair if it’s you feeling down and negative, somebody or something can enlighten you too.  A color a memory or a dream.

Make goals.  Keep moving forward.  And when you hit a wall, climb over it!  Success is going in the direction you choose and not stopping.  It could be waking up, it could be getting through ten minutes or getting through and hour a day or a week…  Getting there ~ that is success.  Progress is going a step further each time.

Live your dreams.  Keep a journal.  If you feel there is nothing and everything is going down hill.  Stop and pay attention ~ You are missing something.  It’s there.
