The Game of Life
When your life becomes unbearable
When you feel that all is hopeless,
When weary from the struggle of trying
When things in your life become disjointed
When the road you are traveling gets bumpy
Remember, it's not what you expect from life,
You see, life is really like playing a game.
So when you near the end of your rope
Don't give up and wave surrender's flag.
Just confront your troubles head on;
For your power will suddenly increase;

Arizona Blue--Gunfighter: The Wolves Nest [Chapter One of Seven: The North]
How I wonder what he's doingas I sit alone at night.How I wonder who he's seeingHow I wonder if I'm right.How I wonder if he's everthought of coming home again,and I wonder if he doesn'tcan my heart mend yet again.
So many looked to you for inspiration,
Since Youve Been Gone...
My life has changedin so so many waysIt seems to always bein a state of disarray...
I AM SO GRATEFUL for simpler times.Stores were closed on Sundays,TV shows seemed to make more sense,Family members spent ample time with each other,And people were valued more than things.
There are many times I set upbarriers and walls,invisible unless you come too close,And then you hit them.

An Old Wood Pile [a poem with notes]
Old skin, once held tightAgainst her skeleton-Rose no more, just drapedLoosely over unpadded flesh;Un-tightened muscles, and tissue,Lost its courage, no-fortitude-,Gone are the days and yearsThat stood against the Indomitable elements; The skeleton, now a landmarkHidden under flesh and bloodGuts and moral fiber, backbone?Collapsed from drudgeryTime, time: cascading inside-.Bones now leaving impressionsAccepting fateLike tarnished silver!...Hands look like autumn leavesFallen from a treeWinter's around the cornerThe door of time is closingLike an old wood pileBeing burnet up-Hard to open thingsHard to do anythingPrecariously balanced-Painfully slow?
