If women are from Venus
And if men are from Mars
We both need to make a move
To meet each other in the middle
Men and women are from distinct planets—men from Mars and women from Venus
- John Gray
Wearing of masks is not new after all
What is somewhat new is the wearing
of masks made from fabrics
People have always worn masks made of
smiles or vocal masks like "I'm fine", "I'm okay"
I look forward to the days when all
forms of masks will be dropped
When we can bare our souls even
when we don't feel whole and
we wouldn't be judged but met with
kindness and empathy.
If life was meant to be viewed only in
black and white
God wouldn't have created all the colorful
things He made
God clearly loves diversity and that's why
He's made each of us (humans) unique in
our own way (pleasing to Him I believe).
I wonder why we still find it hard to accept
each other as God's Masterpieces
We were made with so much love deposited
in our hearts
Yet, we are allowing hatred to rule our world!
I look forward to the day when we will all see
the beauty in our differences and embrace
each other as ONE (as it was designed to be).
i cried everyday for you
i thought blue
was your favorite color
the boys are out to get you
they'll take away your flower
they want what's only yours
stay in your cocoon for now
for summer can only last so long
and soon it will be over
she is ok, I think
she went back to her safe place
you’re there too, she said
it’s very lovely, I hear
Why is poetry dying
when we still have the gift?
If we still have water
then we still have a ship.
We can sail to the places
these words take us.
We are still shaken
by the words that make us.
Why should we let poetry die
when there is so much to explore?
If only people read it
and discovered more.
