“… It’s passed on! This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet it’s maker! This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies! It’s rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-parrot!”
In my darkest moments when air extinguishes all light
Hopelessness hangs heavy above me
Spongy , dense
A Cloud with a fierce clout.
I scramble around seeking for a match
I hear the mirthful giggle of a child
The purrs of a blissed-out cat.
My senses are aroused -Suddenly
The rain pelts down, the wind whips, lashing my face, arms- my entire mortal skin.
Eyes filled with tears of rain
Eyes filled with tears of despair
I’m reminded to look up.
I see a glimpse of a silver lining
My soul is weary
form of hope crystallizes.
Sealed into my thoughts for this second
I’m the Daisy that keeps pushing up
I’m the Daisy that proves that Life must go on.
My soul is renewed with a melancholic joy
I’m not dead
I’m rejuvenated once again.
Don’t let life, and how other people treat you to allow you to become bitter. Don’t expect people who keep the same company to be on the same level as you. Be a good person.
Remain honest, full of heart and genuine.
You do not owe anything to anyone who chooses to disrespect you or your values.
Remember – we all have our own way of coming to a conclusive thought or opinion. We are human and we feel and it’s okay to talk about our feelings and thoughts.
People are influenced by the company they keep (an observation).
Protect yourself, keep yourself safe -especially when you are a person who has a lot of empathy, and time for others.
Let other people talk, critique, gossip about you. It doesn’t matter what people do or don’t say who isn’t in your life.
Remember who you are.
We learn every day of our life.
Stay around people who ask how you are, who cares, who stick up for you. Forget about those who don’t.
Give people the benefit of the doubt but don’t ever allow anyone to disrespect you or bring you down. Or make you feel that your values are being disregarded.
Don’t hate. Let people find their own path.
Lessons I’ve learned lately. Opinion is not always the truth. I can’t be responsible for what a person understands.

When you feel you’re hanging on the vine,
Remember- a seed push forth a mighty sign.
You must take the sunbeams and treasure what’s thine
Wild Kansas City is but one destination on the sign.
Take hope, light and lose the animosity,
for inside you, there is no monstrosity
Get caught speeding in high velocity.
It’s not a train smash — nor a catastrophe.
When you’re stuck in the middle of time.
Jump off the fence ‘cos that’s doing yourself a crime.
Don’t you let commoners think your words cannot define,
Your value, worth and dreams are not benign.
Take it from the apple tree
He allows fruit to aid in his victory.
Oh don’t, hide like a willow tree
Cry, but remember you have a destiny.
Everything will start to — lookup — allow the clouds to throw some shapes.
Open them wide , mind expand — understand the lessons from life’s true greats.
You’re already one them-slightly chipped — still most valuable of porcelain plates.
Never doubt what you can do — take a leaf from natures golden ratio
You radiate when you guide the fates.
Lets’ lasso this up and keep your spirit wild
Grow tall — never lose your inner child.
A silly poem to spread to the crowd
Accept her quirks — light-hearted, silly sap — never lose a day when she has smiled.
*I Iwas inspired by the song ‘This little light of mine’. live, love, don’t hold as grudge. Remain true to who you are and you won’t stand alone for long.
