Adoption - Part I

Only time will tell. . . .

Does this boy who was raised by his adopted mother continue to love her?
Will he find what he is looking?
Is what he finds acceptable to him?
No one knows.

A adopted mother's nightmare,
Her child looking for his birth parents and losing him,
She does not understand why he needs to search,
He does not understand why she does not want him to search,
He feels a need to be complete, to at least know whence he came,
She feels the need to know he loves her and that whatever he finds,
He will come back to her, But will he?

With time on his side, he has found them,
The day has come, He is going to meet them for the first time,
He has met them, His mission is over, He is complete,

But his adopted mother painfully waits at the door,
She hopes that he loves her, That he will come home,
In what was the morning, now has become night,
During that time she remembers his first day with her,
She held him gently in her airs, Uttering words of love,
Words of love only a mother could utter,
Tears of joy tickle her cheeks,
With curiousity, her sons and daughters come to greet him,
She was there with him when he needed his operations,
She was there with him when he no one wanted him,
It did not matter that she did not give birth to him,
What mattered is that she was with him, to nourish him.
She remembers the day she told him of his past,
And the day he set out to find it,
That day has come, Everyone has dreaded this day.

She waits and she hopes. . . .
Finally, A knock at the door, It is him,
Her son has returned, with words of humbleness,
She says, I thought you would never come back home,
But you did? Why?

With words of joy and happiness,
Her son says, Mom, I am home, I would never leave you.
What I set out to find were answers, And I found them,
But here with you and my brothers and sisters,
Here is my home. . .and you. . .of all people,
Proudly I can say, You are my mother. . . .
. . . .There is no other. . . .

BLACK AND WHITE

Undertones of all
Basic black and white
Simple silhouettes
In unseen sights
Words with mirrored meanings
Definitions are interchangeable
With hidden messages underneath
Yet, above plainly exchangeable
Perception is in the way each sees
There is no right or wrong
There is no expertise
Just the thoughts
That came to mind
How you see, is what you find

Evening all,

Poet, great write!!!!


IN THE ENERGY OF THE ART

In the core, the depth of all
Deeper than the heart
Love is the potency
In the energy of the art

The power of its influence
Pours mysteriously inside
Overflowing the passion
Heaving like the tide

Tears are rolling down
While the emotion breathes
Just one glance and you’re moved
With a feeling that never leaves

Love - A different perspective

A daughter loving another woman,
Both her parents disapprove,
They do not understand her love for her,
They only wish the best for her,
She is in love, She loves her, that is what matters to her.

Forbidden love, that is the conflict,
A family divided because one of their members loves differently,
Her mother longed for her daughter to have a grand wedding,
To a man, She wishes this, She is refuses to give up this dream,
Her father although he disapproves,
He still loves his daughter,
The daughter only wishes to be accepted,
Her little brother knows only that he loves his big sister,
She is his world, She is his comfort, she is his happiness,
This is little boy who will someday become a man does not understand this conflict.

A father in the middle, wishing to help, he understand his daughter,
She loves differently than her mother and father,
A mother in the midst of this battle, she does not understand her daughter,
She knows she loves differently, But does not understand why,
She longs for her daughter to come to her senses.
The daughter only wishes for her mother to understand,
She tries to explain, For it is your dream for me to marry a man,
Please understand my dreams, my desires, I am your daughter,
I love differently,
But she can not turn her mother to understand,
Her mother's mind is set.

Each day, The mother and her precious daughter, they utter words of anger,
A father and small brother are in the middle, trying to bring peace between them,
They fail, her brother sad, she can not to see him this way,
And finally, the daughter decides she has to leave,
Where she goes from here she does not know.

It is night time, The stars in the sky shine brightly,
She leaves a note for her brother,
She write him to take care of mommy and daddy,
To know that she loves him and will always think of him,
She leaves not because of him but because she loves differently,
And that is why she leaves.

Her bags are packed, she is ready,
She leaves for her journey,
Sadly, she leaves with words left unspoken,
Her last words to her mother were in sadness and anger,
Her last words to her father were in peace and tranquility,
Her last words to her brother were in comfort and love.
When she will come back home, she does not know,
Time will tell if this tragedy ends happily,
What is known is this:

. . . When the Angels in Heaven see tragedy, they are sad and cry. . .
. . . When the Angels in Hell see tragedy, they rejoice and smile. . .

Hi A.G.,
hope all is going well for you!!!

THIS WEEKEND IS MINE

Peace and quiet in the house
All the kids are now gone
Just a weekend to myself
With mellow music on

Sipping on raspberry wine
Letting the stress float away
Leisurely relaxing the mind
Smelling the wines sweet bouquet

Propping a pillow behind my head
And placing my feet up on the stool
Talking with all my friends
In the air-conditions cool

Time has no boundaries this weekend
For this time is mine
Just chilling on the couch
Enjoying the beauty of the wine

MISSING

Writing messages in the steam
On the bathroom mirror
My hand being held
When I hear words I fear
The butterflies in my stomach
Waiting to hear his voice
The comfort in
Just having that choice
Bring someone
Breakfast in bed
Or someone wiping away
A tear, if shed
A phone call to break
The day’s routine
Or just sharing
My morning caffeine
Walking through the park
With someone I love
Or just kicking back
Staring at the stars above
A dinner for two
In candlelight
Or just knowing the feeling
That feels so right

Afternoon all,

REAL FRIENDS…..

Friends don’t treat each other
With disrespect and dishonesty
They treat each other with love
And conduct themselves with modesty

It’s ok to want what the other may have
As long as you don’t hold it against them
Show them that you’re pleased for their happiness
It is not for one to condemn

Real friends don’t turn their backs
They hang in there through the rough
They try to make it better
No matter how many times are tough

Sam

to all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU ASKED ME TO TELL YOU

You asked me to tell you
But, the conversation always strays
Back to your problems
Each and every day

I’m in the midst of finding myself
Some of its good, some of its not
Some thoughts are the best
Some others still sought

I’m searching my own soul
And I’m learning to live
I’m sorting through things
As I stay positive

Times are tough for everyone
We all walk in different shoes
So don’t hold against me
With words that abuse

You can walk the path besides me
But do not follow behind
Do not walk ahead of me either
Or the friendship is not combined

For we are all equals
So treat me as one please
Know I too hold a heart
That breaks with ease

So just be my friend
Through and through
Feel my love and support
That's always there for you

Sam

BLACK ENVY

Jealously is said to be
In jaded hues of green
Yet, black envy
Is all that’s seen
Resentment from another
Unsure if it’s meant
From their own
Un-trusted discontent
Misdirected anger and hate
Only from the darkened greed
Never allowing oneself
To truly be freed
Only taking away
Their own air to breathe
When so many others
Are willing to en-wreathe
Don’t take for granted
Your family and friends
Because black envy kills
And destroys on both ends

Sure. . .

Today, I feel different,
I do not know why? Can you tell me why?
Today for some reason I am full of questions,
I know I will not get answers,
But may be you can see what I am trying say!

Can you tell me why a man would want to beat his wife?
Didn't he not vow to her that he would cherish her?
Does she have to suffer such a disgrace before her?
Does her husband realize he breaking his sacred vow that he swore before God?

What is it about roses?
Why do they have thorns?
Why can not a rose be free of thorns?

How can a mother sell her baby for crack?
Does she not understand she has a responsibility of raising that child?
And why does not the father of that child be a man and be a father to that child?
Why is her addiction greater than the love for her child?
Why?

Is it hard for someone to be honest for once?
Why would they lie to someone to hide the truth?
Do they not understand the truth is better than dishonesty?

I do not understand,
When did it become okay when our children became 18,
We want them out of the house!
Do we not understand we only get one shot of being with them on this Earth?
And when did it become acceptable to put our parents in a "home" full of strangers?
Did we forget the time they took out of their lives to take care of us?

So many questions but no answers. . . .

Morning all,

TO LIVE

Reaching new heights
Beginning to live
Learning to trust
And how to forgive

Making new friends
Seeing new light
Gaining new strength
Shedding the spite

Letting go of the old
Exploring new ways
Beginning to have
More better days

Evening all,

Thor, no pinching now!!! LOL


BREAKING THE CHAINS

Slowly new freedoms come about
Breaking the chains and stepping on
Diving into the river, as it may seem
The one place I’ve always been drawn

Refreshed and revived as days pass
Pushing myself to new limits
Like the waterfall that pours into the open water
Blending together as natural spirits

Good to see you back G.,

Heavens light

Glowing bright
Fulfilling white
Natures delight
Holding heights
For better plights
Enhancing sight
For sleepless nights

FREEFALLING FLIGHT

No wings, no net
Freefalling flight
Trust be my issue
I’ll catch myself tonight

And everyday forward
I stand proud and tall
For, I know that I have friends
To break my fall

The night skies are mine
As I drink the moons glow
And taste the stars shine
Where ever I go

The rain is my tears
The wind is my air
The sun is my light
That gives me flair

MISTY SHOWER

Dancing in the moons light
Shadows glisten off your skin
Creating new memories
Held deep within

Lava colors stretching out
Seen from a far
Little glitters twinkle
From a falling star

Misty shower settling
Down to make the dew
Forming on the grass
Reflecting the moon on you

Afternoon all,

SHADES

Blinds that impair not only sight
But a persons judgment as well
Shades that come in many tones
Some from passion, some from hell

Mixed emotions, taint the soul
Confusion holds the only answers
If not sorted through in time
The perplexities grow like cancers

Sometimes stepping back some
Lifts the shades that cloak the mind
Thus, giving you the simple answers
That was always right there to find

Jumping to fast into the unknown
Will only burn you with the fires
Collapsing all that you’re feeling
Until your soul merely just expires

GOING FISHING

Plans to take my father fishing
To share old times and new
True in my heart and soul
These times are way overdue

He lives so far away now
His health is getting worse
Sometimes it feels like
Growing up is just a curse

So I’m grabbing all the chances
While he’s back home by me
To give back to the man
Who’s the best there could be

TO REALLY SEE ME

In the depths of my core, lays the lost soul of mine
It’s through ones eyes, one sees the fine line
One has to close their eyes, to see, the soul I bare
It’s a sensation, like breathing fresh air
In order for me to trust, I must be equally trusted
Not someone looking, at what can be adjusted
To really see me, is through ones heart
It’s the only way, to being to start
Ask me to walk away, I will not look back
Best be forgotten, then to heed the attack
Yet, ask me to stay and be your friend
Then all troubles will find ways to amend
I can not offer more than I have to give
And it takes equal trust for a friendship to live
Life is ever changing, so too, I must be
To look through your own soul, is how to really see me
If truth, honesty, and respect is not equally sealed
Then the answer you seek, is already revealed

Sam
