Words
are combined
or stand alone 

Definitions
have each
of their own 

Used
for speaking
thoughts to convey 

Written
as history
for another day

 Words
should be
used much more

Communication
is lacking
like never before

Family – Saturday’s Hay(na)ku

Love

of family

makes life worthwhile

Giving

strength for

the extra mile

Without

them I’d

have no smile!

Stay

with me

for a  while!

Dreams Are

Dreams

shall become

as our realities

When 

failures aren’t

seen as finalities

We Speak To Them

To the;

*Young

*Old                 

* Alive

*Even Dead

 

 

*”Black”, “white”,                                    

*”yellow” or “red”

 

 
*A million thoughts

we each convey

*Throughout the hours 

of every day

 

* But was there

                     a single word

* That by any

was even heard?

A Cliche’ In Mind

Oft’ do I find
a cliche’ in mind

When sitting to write
of my latest plight

Trying not to go
where you already know

Rather bring something new
over which to chew

But it’s never easy
whether in-depth or breezy

A message getting across
without suffering a loss

Of the point made
to not soon fade

Yet in a cliche’ mind
it often stays I find!

Inside You’re Bleeding

Do you wanna be somebody else?
Sick of feeling so left out?
Hate when they think that you
don’t know what you’re talking about?

Are you desperate to find something
more before your life is over?
Wanna stare up at the rainbows
while lying in fields of clover?

Are you sick of everyone around?
Wish they would leave you alone
with the big fake smiles that
look like they’re chiseled in stone?

There’s no one that really cares
what it is you are needing
 all you get’s their superior lies
while deep down inside you’re bleeding!

Every Day

Do you believe in luck
on it do you bet?

Or is everything a blessing
that from God you get?

Either way you see it
and any way it goes

It doesn’t matter to me
what life at me throws

For whether luck or blessing
to me that you are

You make my whole world
so much better by far

Than all of the years
that have gone on before

You came into my life
to love and to adore!

Teresa Marie  11/2/11

Put On A Happy Face

Tracks of tears
you can trace
or put on
a happy face

There is beauty
found in grace
so put on
a happy face

What is torn
you can lace
by putting on
a happy face

And don’t wallow
in your disgrace
just put on
a happy face

Share with others
in this place
the pleasure of
a happy face

For through time
and all space
the lasting memory’s
a happy face!

Teresa Marie  10/19/11

Poetry Is My Way

Poetry is my way
my feelings to say

Work hard every day
try not to dismay

And come what may
I hope and pray

Before I go away
this message I’ll convey

The Truth, Life and Way
gave all I have today

The words that I say
are to His glory display!
