VIEW THE WORLD THROUGH MY HEART

View the World Through my Heart

 

I don’t mean to make you cry.

I just want to pull your heartstrings,

touch your soul,

touch your heart,

and make you think.

I want you to view

the world in a different light.

I want to make you smile

and laugh.

If I can do that,

then my poetry

is not written in vain.

Then to me, my poetry is priceless

and worth more than gold.

THE PROBLEM WITH BEING CHILDLESS

The Problem With Being Childless

 

 

The problem with being childless
is that you will never
feel a baby’s heart beating
or move around inside you.

You will never have a chance to name a baby.
The problem with being childless
is that you will never hear
a baby’s first word,

you will never see
a baby’s first step
or watch him walk or crawl.
You will never have bragging rights

to tell your friends how cute
your baby is or what he did today.
You will never have a chance
to be proud as your baby

goes to school for the first time.
You will never watch a child
turn into a teenager.
You will never have a chance to

have a mother-daughter talk
or mother-son talk
about life or help solve
his or her problems.

You will never have the privilege
to see your teenager
going to the school prom and/or school dance.
You will never have the privilege and

be proud to watch your teenager
graduating from high school.
You will never have the privilege
to see your child become an adult,
get married and have a child.

Look on the bright side
you will never have to worry
about someone telling you
how to raise your child.

You will never have to worry
about a predator messing
with your child or worry
about your child being
missing, or runaway or being killed

or never have to worry about
your child taking drugs.
You will never have to worry about
going to jail because someone
has accused you of abusing your child.

Look on the bright side,
you have more time to have
a poetry book published
and you have more time to write.

THE PRICELESS GIFT OF FRIENDSHIP

The Priceless Gift of Friendship

The priceless gift of friendship
is a gift of only you can give.
Friendship can’t be bought,
traded or won
or forced on someone.
It can’t be wrapped up
in a fancy bow.
It doesn’t come with
a price tag
and it’s worth more than gold.
It is more precious
than material things.
It is being a friend
to someone in need
or who just wants a friend.
Oh what a joy it is
to give the priceless
gift of friendship
that came from your heart!
It is the priceless gift of friendship.
