I always have such a hard time making it to the pantry on Sundays, I am happy I made it here today.
Spring represents promise of new things and good changes, like Mary, it is a favorite season for me as well, so I am going to make a promise to myself this spring to make it to Poetry Pantry more often
Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.
I don't want to be the pawn in another man's own game
nor watch another play his hand and never do the same.
Standing on the sidelines always playing it safe,
afraid to get my sneakers and go out and run the race.
I long to reach out my hand and play the queen of hearts
and not be frightened of losing the game before it even starts.
A poet is a thinker, a dreamer, and a dweller on the muse
sometimes he gets too caught up on what another man may do..
So I shall lay down my pen and pick up the sword of life
take a swing and hold the freedom of moving my own knight.
