Near or Far RAISE the BAR
I reach out… you slap my hand
Here I sit, me with your shit
I look out…but want none of it
Here I cry, and wonder why?
I ponder… why do I try?
There you stand, my heart in your hand
You look down and don’t understand
There you sit, and ponder it
You think you know..you don’t know shit
There I cry.. "I WONDER WHY!!"
You don’t listen..and so I sigh..
Here we part..or do we restart?
We must take the time to apply some heart
Here we are… near or far
We must raise the bar
Standards kept..needs met
A steady pace wins the bet
Those who have ears to hear
Those who have eyes that are open
Those who have hearts to understand
** I know we say things our of concern.. but I do not think it is a kind way to do this by giving a one sided conversation. I am sorry my poem contains profanity, but it is where I am right now. I may not be a strong witness, and I apologize for that too, I will strive to do better Lord. Please be patient with me.
I had a friend give me a lecture last night, I know she means well, but she took me totally of guard and I was tired. I felt ambushed and browbeaten (where does that statement come from? Head butting?? Brows have to be pretty big to beat someone.. of course I did have this one teacher in high School who could probably do it..yikes) Wasn’t that a good way to end a poker night? I lost by the way.. I have no poker face.. that is why I couldn’t believe Cel thought I could pull off such a complete "newbie". I won the game of "frustration" or whatever it is called…it has a board. marbles and dice. Was a good evening with just the right people 🙂 Irvin was such a poker face, he could bluff up a storm but Marion took us all!! She had the right amount of spunk, she called Irvin out and owned him!! Julie did quite well there on a few hands. I got skunked!! But I got to keep the candy!!
