Pointless Pertuberation!

What if?

Why worry.

What then?

Why doubt.

What next?

Why hesitate.

Where to?

Why waver.

Should I?

I would.

Must I?





A divine comedy

I might say

Blessed with a heart of gold

A bit forgetful at times

May or may not remember

Mother’s Day this coming Sunday

If and when he does

It will be no later than Monday

Bearing flowers and sweets

He will be there in a heartbeat

But if he needs a subtle reminder

I’ll just call and say

Remember me

My favorite Son

Oops I forgot

I have only one

Living A Story!

Chapter after chapter

Page after page

Line after line

Word after word

Defeats and triumphs

Endings and beginnings

Tick tock of a clock

Lub dub of a heartbeat

Glory of a sunrise

Gentle whistle of the wind

Hush whisper of a fallen leaf

Sorrowful drip of a rain drop

Ominous boom of the thunder

Magic of a sunset

I am brave enough to weather any storm

For the promise of a rainbow


Keep Going!

When overtaken by doubt

Looked ahead

When hope faded

Looked further

When fear took hold

Looked within

When seized by exhaustion

Looked beyond

When touched by a miracle

Looked around

Lighted upon a sign


Keep Going!


But I Look Forward!

Who need them
What a waste of time

Fleeing hope
Future on hold

Facing life

Glimpse into nothingness
Glance to emptiness

Looking forward!
Life journey
Longing toward freedom

So there!
I chose nothing but
To LookĀ Forward



Divine gift

Amazingly courageous

Unwavering faith

Graciously kind

Highly principled

Tenacious strength

Effortless love

Resolute determination

My daughter, Angelica, is the miracle I believe in.šŸ’–

Just Like That!

Doing the same thing

Over and over

Feeling drained

Again and again


Here and there


Far and wide

Taking steps

Backward and forward

Same routine

Up and down

Enough of that!

To pursue

To achieve

To be in charge

To regain control

As easy as

Just like that!


Aspire to Inspire!

Some people come and go in our lives.

Others come to stay.

Some people leave a mark in our lives.

Others leave a trail.

Most people just pass through.

There are those people though,

No matter where we are in life,

Inspire us to be what we are today.

Thank you, DAD!


Believe, Don’t Give Up!

For every downhill battle, there will be an uphill victory.

For every backward tread, there will be a forward initiative.

For every letdown, there will be contentment.

For every tear, there will be a smile.

Sometimes what seems to be the end, could be just a beginning.

Life is full of endless detours and turnarounds

Giving up is not an option. Never was, never will be.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”. Albert Einstein.


Honestly Humble!

Larger than life
