Let me try . . . to make you feel good!

I’m at an age

where I’ve gone through

so much (that is not all good)

so many people

have disappointed me

i don’t blame them

they are human

aren’t they?

and humans are this way–

they make mistakes,

some are greedy

some are out

only for themselves

they just


know —

as years pass by

their lives & values will change

i used to be self-centered

i am becoming (or am)

a recluse (or a hermit) now

wanting to be alone

& often not answering my phone ///

While you, my friend, are still young


advice is

be kind to others

love all people

overlook other’s faults

expect nothing in return / / /

if you have read this far

i send you my blessings

and prayers

that you will

have a beautiful life

& God will guide you

in your perfect life’s path

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
