Everyone Need That One Friend

Everyone needs that one friend.
Who will support you and lift you up.
Who will never tear you down. 

Everyone needs that one friend.
Who will always have your back.
Who will never turn on you.

Everyone needs that one friend,
Who will listen to your success.
And belittle you.

Everyone needs that one friend.
Who defends you just because.
And who will never speak ill of you.

Everyone needs that one friend. 
Are you that one friend to someone?
Do you need that one friend?

You Make Me Feel

You make me feel confident.
You make me feel like I can make a difference. 
You make me feel like what I do is important. 

You make me feel valued.
Like I can accomplish my goals.
Like my goals mean something. 

You make me feel talented.
Like what I write is good.
Like my writing is a worthwhile endeavor.

You make me feel complete.
Like I have been waiting my entire life for you.
Like my life finally makes sense. 


No one has ever done this for me before.

The Darkness

The darkness surrounds us
Like a blanket it wraps us and pulls us under
We fight and struggle, but we cannot move
The air is stiff as we struggle to breathe
With each moment, panic sets in
Our heart races as the darkness takes its hold
We can’t breathe as the air comes out of our lungs
Wrapping around us, tighter and tighter.
The darkness pulling us further and further into its grasp

I Miss You

I miss you, my friend.
I miss what I thought we were.
I miss how we talked
I miss how we laughed
I miss how we helped each other. 

Was it all a lie?
Did you just put up with me?
Did you ever like me?
Or was I just a means to an end?
How can I find others now,
When all you were was a lie?

Facade

Covered in mud and decaying
You can’t see who they truly are
They hid in the bushes
You can’t see who they truly are

Their face they hide
You can’t see who they truly are
A mask of deception, done their face
You don’t know their true intentions

You think you know them
The facade they show you,
You think you know them
The face they want you to see,
You think you know them

It is only what they want you to see

A Flower

A Flower
A flower blooms
Spreading its petals out to enjoy the sun.
The sun rises and sets
Each day a new day

Each day a new chance for change,
Each day a new chance for greatness
Each day a new chance to fund your passion.

The flower blooms taking in the sun.
Spreading its joys for all to see.
Be the flower and spread your petals, for all to see.

Sometimes

Sometimes
Sometimes I need to step away.
Retreat in the darkness and hide.
Sometimes I need the quiet.
A place where no light can hit me.
Sometimes, I just need to step away.
 
But other times, I love the light. 
I want to be loud and bright
To go to a place that is loud and full of life. 
To laugh, dance and sing.

 
But sometimes the quiet is all I need.

Ramblings of a Chaotic Mind (NEW BOOK)

Ramblings of a Chaotic Mind
This is a collection of poems, thoughts, short stories, and art. I hope you enjoy them.

Many of my poems might be dark and depressing, but writing is how I cope with things life throws at us. When I’m frustrated, hurt, and sad, I write. It helps me cope with my feelings though not every poem will fit this description most of them will.

I write on a slew of subjects; motherhood, family, miscarriage, children, raising children and many more. Sometimes moms get into a competition of who’s the better mother or who has the best kids, whose job is hard, and that mindset helps no one. I promise to be as real as I can, hoping the things that have challenged me can help someone else.

Everything Ends

Everything must come to an end.
No matter how much work has been done.
No matter how much time has been given.
Everything must come to an end.

Sadness envelopes me as it ends.
A chapter of my life, which has gotten me through so many challenging times.
All of my work is gone in an instant.
Friendships, stories, development gone.
Where do we go from here, and how do I overcome this crushing defeat?
All things end, but I wish they didn't have to.

I made a video with my kids. They took pictures holding my book and had the honor of opening the package and holding the book before me.
