Poem by MwsR

Remember

Flashes are so poignant

They stick to your brain

Causing you to sometimes feel insane

Expressive glances

Leave you wondering

Checking your past reactions

Stirs of remembrance

Cause you to lose your temperance

They punish you, in some sort of way

Leaving no room for free play

It is cause and effect

Movement and motion

Recourse and stand still

What we sometimes say we never really feel

When our minds clutter

Our lips stutter

If we go we often really stay

In the past, in the visions of yesterday

Spinning away and in dis-array

It all gets twisted it all falls apart

In little segments, somewhere in our hearts.

Take things not, for granted

Take some sort of stand

Pass knowledge, not chaos to every man.

Make a difference where you can

Let by-gones be gone

Traveling to wherever is your home.

Stay there, feel the love

Put yourself in that human glove

Secure, safe, and real.

MwsR Poem And Thoughts

A TIME, by MwsR

There comes a time to care, and a time to disappear.
A time to forgive, and a time to move on.
A time to cherish, and a time to learn from,
A time to accept and a time to reject.
A time to hope and a time to give up.
A time to be last and a time to be first..
A time to talk about, and a time to keep silent.
A time to walk away, and a time to stay.

There is only this one life!

Don’t allow yourself to give to another and get nothing in return.
Don’t allow yourself to be used, or hurt, just because someone forgot your worth.
Don’t allow your heart to be wasted on selfish individuals, spend that energy loving the ones who are there, stood by your side, and will love you

MwsR Poem

Hope

In a world where looks are everything

Focus on inner beauty.

In a time where anything goes

Stand up for something.

In a year that’s just beginning

Become something good.

In a second your life can change

Don’t leave anything for regret.

In someone’s house, there is no peace

Reach out to them and offer some.

In someone’s heart, they have lost hope

Be the reason they start to hope again.

In families, there is conflict and distrust

Show them a better way.

In this time of your life, you exist

Exist for something greater than you.

Make the most, be the hope

Live graciously and thoughtfully.

Christmas…by MwsR

It is certainly not about who is good or naughty

Now don’t misunderstand me and go-getting haughty.

I think of Christmas as a market made for money

I know some of you are thinking that’s not very funny.

But it is true.

I know you see, you do.

It should be a celebration of Christ’s birth

The whole frankincense and myrrh.

But sadly I see people so obsessed with gift-giving

Instead, they’re emphasizing all the receiving.

Now don’t get me wrong I am not saying to be a scrooge

Just have a heart that gives love and love will ensue.

Think about widows and homeless people

Think about those you encounter that come worship under the same steeple.

People are fighting just to have a reason

To see the magic in this Christmas season.

They may never know till you take the time to show

It’s not something you can find wrapped up with a bow.

It is what Christmas should represent

It was that hope that God had sent.

His son, the newborn king

The one who gives us everything.

The reason for this Holiday.

The time to get on your knees and pray,

And thank him for the Lord of all of us

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

MwsR Poem

Forever It Stays That Way

Unanswered, yet I have the answer
Inside still spinning but no cure like there’s not for cancer.

Maybe it’s the symptoms I keep feeling
Can’t stop the thoughts from unveiling.

Forever it stays that way
There never could ever be enough to sway

Time to change the spinning into memory
Forgetting of course about being free

Its not so bad
It makes me sad

It also makes me emerge
My own fullness to splurge

Forever it stays that way
Even replaced it will lay

Silent yet exploding in sound
Around my tattered heart it abounds

I’m still good as new
Because I’m one of those few

That learned to fight
And kept in it despite

I don’t worry
I’m in no hurry

Because…forever it will stay,
This way.

Turkey Blues by MwsR (haha)

When everyone is late

And all you can do is think about getting a plate

The temperature inside the place

Makes red of your face

Children running here and there

People ignore the kids behavior everywhere

The adults don’t ask to help out

And your gravy gets too stout

The oven cannot keep up with the dishes

You hear comments about Christmas wishes

And all you want to do is eat

But you realize you’re the only one on her feet

The first things cooked start to cool

Everyone knows that’s breaking a serving rule

By the time people start to smell the aroma

The kids try to find their momma

In comes a cascade of kids without their folks

One tries to sneak a taste and starts acting like they’ve choked

Where is all the help and support

I would say that some have gathered outside under the carport

And again as the food finally finishes

You are having to put out all the dishes

Realizing all too late

That you are short a couple plates

Yelling into the other room

You ask someone to find your broom

No one notices your plea

Only what they’re watching on TV

So you go, no one caught the clue

Of course, why not you

After all, this is Thanksgiving blues.

MwsR Poem (from a Diabetic’s perspective)

What I Know(Diabetic’s thoughts)
By MwsR

It just takes one bite
And my sugar stays high all night.
One can of a regular coke
And feeling tired afterward is no joke.
Want to overeat
But knowing inside it will make my blood sugar peak.
At birthday parties pass up on the cake
Because you hate that “sugar high” headache.
Feeling tired all day long
The food you ate and what kind was all wrong.
Wanting to get in shape
Exercising only with enough calorie intake.
Going out on the town to a favorite food place
Catching the frown you’re given from your loved one’s face.
Being told “You know that is wrong to do”,
But asking them, “And just who the heck are you?”
It’s not thought about
Never easy without a doubt.
Diabetes is a complication and disease
But doesn’t have to bring you to your knees.
Take control, take back your life.
Make it count regardless of any strife.

Strength by MwsR Writings

All rights reserved. MwsR2022

The walls I built were never for you, they were for me. The strength it took to keep them erect was much harder than you’d expect. Then one day. many years later, the walls no longer mattered.
It was the strength that I had gained from all of that pain. My world would be forever changed but my heart would live on, go on, and be much more than I’d ever hoped for.
The remnants of the walls remain and sometimes I still sense their presence. I no longer wait with bated breath but with rememberance of what was, what could be.
You’ll never know this because you are not me.
So don’t try to lessen my strength with rumors, you aren’t privy to such a state as mine. I will not run away, or resort to a corner to pine. You will only see what I choose to show you, what I allow. There it is, it is the time and it is now.
Don’t think to hard on this, you will certain be amiss.
Travel on from here, I implore. You don’t belong, not anymore.
