DUSTED DREAMS

This is a poem I wrote when my sojourn began. What a long, arduous journey it is to reclaim one’s self after experiences and naive judgments erroneously guide us to give up our identity to please others in order to be accepted.

DUSTED DREAMS

Took you down off the high shelf,

found you buried in the attic,

rooted through the basement,

and scoured the closets too.

Found you in all kinds of places,

tucked into little nooks and crannies,

shoved aside everywhere.

Brought you all back into the open,

all the little pieces hidden away,

put them all back together,

and unlike Humpty Dumpty

put myself back together again.

Bullies … The Broken Souls

Broken in ways evil revels

… seizes to do its bidding

bullies wield words and actions

to tear apart any semblance of good …

Lashing out for being misunderstood

for being harmed, never healed

taking the lives of others

down with them

to the darkest places

where broken souls’ screams

are never heard

… where a sense of value

no longer lives

… where violence

of any kind

is the only way

they know how to feel

The only escape for all …

are prayers for good and salvation

to set us all free.

Time with Dad today … priceless. And the words he inspired …

For all the years
you were there for me
and all the years
you were not.

For all the years
I was not there with you
I am glad the time did come
when back together we came.

For these past few years
dear Dad of mine,
I have come to know the boy
inside of the man too …

And for these many reasons
I feel incredibly blessed.

Happy Father’s Day Dad.

Your eldest daughter,
Kaitlin …
and your once little girl,
Debbie.
