& Retail Therapy

“The schedule was wrong. I can’t find you relief for a break so here’s a $20 gift card instead.” “Why must we form one line? He wants to play the lottery and I want to return all my groceries. I’m in a hurry.” Everyone was always in a hurry especially during the holiday season. I’ll…

& You Gotta Belize It

Cruising is more than stuffing your face in a Jacuzzi with a Twilight Zone drink. Happiness happens when you’re in port. Although I only visited five ports in seven days I made memories to last a lifetime. Costa Maya: My bestest found us this great deal. For $50 we could snorkel, kayak, and enjoy all…

& Justice for Some 

Everyone is always quick to quote MLK on race but if he “fixed” the problem he’d be here today… “All lives matter,” is like saying “With liberty and justice for all*” *terms and conditions apply.

& Pieces

& Re(Introduction)

It took a decade of frustration but all your indecisive ways were a blessing in disguise I’d try and I’d try to get you to love me the way that I loved you the most but I was asking something of you that you couldn’t give. Not even big things just flowers, “Thinking of you,”…

& Happy Mom’s Day

Love my mother so I wrote her a poem. Every year I write her a different one. This year’s just came with a slideshow. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. 🙂 She’s my first best friend. I didn’t pick her, she picked me. She’s changed my diapers, wiped my snotty nose and…

& Metaphorically Speaking II

Your love constantly pulled at my heart strings creating an array of knots that took me years to untangle. How did we get so intertwined… Your love was like constantly trying to swim upstream without a paddle with a block anchored to my foot exerting all the energy in the world yet getting nowhere Why did I…
