Paradox...

In a changing stasis,
my own paradox,
I sit around unmoving,
lost in my own thoughts.

Times that have passed,
Things yet unseen,
I travel through the shadows
lost, somewhere in between.

I view far off places,
yet nothing do I gain,
I look back upon my life,
and I remember pain.

Silent Tears...

A thunderous silence
breaks through my thoughts.
What was once many great ideas
is now a triumph, lost.

Baffling words tumble through my mind.
Reflections of darkness hover.
A disturbing peacefulness beckons to me,
and inside myself, I take cover.

What would it be like to stay there forever?
To be lost in all my cares?
From the inside, looking out -
I cry silent tears.

Reality bites!!!

In the midst of turmoil
There stood a girl
Full of life
And the strength to go on
Life has treated her badly
But she faced it all
Her arms weakened
Her legs were sore
She held on to life
And lives it up
She can't be defeated
She won't fall

This is an ode to my sister...I look up to you for my strength...and I salute you for your courage...we will fight through this together as a family...love you...
