Wisdom

The older I become the more

I realize that I am still learning

Some things I learn are not

what I expected …

But …

Necessary nonetheless

 

In the past few months

I realized that friends are

nice to have

But …

they are not a necessity

Acquaintances are more

realistic than friends

I have never had an

acquaintance stab me

in the back

Never has an acquaintance

deliberately hurt me

My acquaintances have been

loyal, respectful, caring, and

take time for me when friends

rarely if ever have done

 

So …

in  my old age the wisdom

of experience has given me

the realization that I will

never become close friends

with another person again

I will seek out and maintain

my acquaintances who

enrich my life like no others …

We Are All Here …

 

In this journey we call life

things are often not revealed

when and where we expect

 

Go your own way one day

at a time accepting the

challenges along the way

 

There will be choices

And …

Different roads to take

But …

Never stop seeking…

searching…

learning…

growing…

We all have our

purpose along the way …

Hot Chocolate!

Hot Chocolate!

My life of crime began

at the age of 3 …

maybe 4

When you reach my

age it is difficult to

remember that long ago

 

On the weekly grocery

shopping trip with

my Mom there it was

Right at my finger tips

to tempt me

And…

I did not resist!

 

My favorite candy…

A Hershey milk chocolate bar

And …

it fit exactly into my

white patent purse

 

The deed was done and

so was the shopping

On the way home I

whipped out my pilfered

snack and began to

delicately unwrap those

tempting chocolate squares

 

With many questions my mother

pulled it out of me that

the chocolate bar had not

been paid for but was acquired

by what I have learned is called

a five-finger discount

 

Finally home, groceries put away

and the lecture began about my

life of crime and how the theft

of that chocolate bar took money

away from the store owners.

 

Result of that discussion …

Back to the store and I

was allowed to go in alone

confess my crime

And…

make financial restitution

this process was much worse

than any spanking I ever had

 

Life lesson learned that day …

My one and only day as

a chocolate thief or

thief of any kind …

Move On…

There comes that day
when your heart catches 
up to your head
And…
You no longer care
 
The pain is gone
The shame non-existent
The feelings you once held
No longer matter
 
With a lifted weight
And…
A sigh
 
You know this is the
day you finally let go
So…
You can move on…

River

Her life was
like a river
Ever-changing
 
Water flowing is
always dynamic
forever changing
 
A finger dipped
into flowing
water in the
same place 
touches different
water every time
 
New…
Different…
Changing…
 
Like that river…
Each person in
her life touched
her differently…
influenced her 
in a new way…
became a new 
part of her
Soul…

Questions

The older I am
the more I 
question everything
 
Myself mostly
my decisions…
my beliefs…
my trust…
 
Others are so much
more intelligent
I have so much to learn
and such a short time left
 
Fate…
I throw caution
to the wind
offer up my questions
to the Universe
 
Sit back…
watch…
wait…
To go on

Transformation

It has been a struggle
moving from girl to woman
 
My final most important
Transformation
came about through
You
 
Leading me…
Allowing me…
Encouraging me…
to find the
woman deep inside 
Me…
 
Transforming me to
new heights…
new depths…
new places 
in my 
Soul
 
While allowing me..
Teaching me…
to maintain the
girl inside
