She Wore An Unassuming Beauty

She wore an unassuming beauty
With lips of a scarlet hue
Painted for the ongoing battle
Dressed to provide impending views
A strong woman knowing desire
Without regard to their qualms
Protecting her soul at all cost
They’re indignant, but she’s keeping calm

Life Doesn’t Have To Be Difficult

Life doesn’t have to be difficult
It’s not easy or perfect or always fun
Often times we must merely survive
It’s all a cycle – a promise of a rising sun
Keep vigilant & maintain the good fight
Anything is possible when you have hope
Let us go into battle hand in hand
But first – a quickie would really help me cope

I Used To Be Young & Impulsive

I used to be young & impulsive
Idealistic – crying out for those mistreated
Arrogant, impervious to facts or wisdom
Ready for the status quo to be defeated

Now I’m old & impulsive
Stringing words together at will
Focusing on a more personal battle
Time has removed my desire to kill

I continue to pull within my own skin
Struggles no one can understand or see
Alone to fight these cruel thoughts
The sands fall & I merely wish to be free

Another Dreary Day

Another dreary day in spite of recent success

Pain clouding your delicate mind

To battle we go; into a distant goodnight

Heartfelt eyes twinkle in spite

Fertile promises a depth you might find
