I look up at a statue made of stone
This man resembles someone made of blood and bone
Surely he did something worthwhile for him to be admired by all
What was his last words before the shadows began to call
Over and over the man dealt with his past
Or did the everlasting promise of life anew sought him to the everlast
One thing's for sure he is a wall
While people surround him at a stall

You adopted me so i'm like a son but never could I measure up to the joy of your loved ones keep at it ton ton make your kids proud to have a mother such as you as i have with you ;)

for those not used to dealing with medical people in an emergency environment, i will offer this bit of general advice... stay focused and as terse as possible ..keep any emotion out of your voice and manner.. any germane history has to be presented carefully and clearly to the first triage nurse .. the speed of response to your situation depends on the inital person's evaluation of the situation..these people have typically seen it all and tend to discount information delivered emotionally ..potentially moving you down the list.. if fever is the major symptom any complication related to that symptom ( like a history of febrile (fever related) convulsions) needs to be transmitted in a clear and honest delivery..you will find a good ER will not ignore a situation that is degrading into a potential crisis..but your manner means way more than you might think.. save all emotions and situational evaluations til the crisis is managed and you will improve your odds of being treated at the appropriate pace the seriousness of the patients condition demands.. I understand your frustration and it may be that you were inappropriately delayed..If so relay your honest evaluation to the ER manager in writing..you might be surprised by the reaction and trust me on this...responding to patient comments and concerns has increasingly been part of a departments rating within most hospitals.. ( translation.. money for raises gets allocated based on internal rating) if the place sucks..let them know it

bringing here from last line eight line....written this morning following yours.....

let our love hold those true near
hearts held, hands held, sister held dear
in a golden bubble of healing light
to help her through the night

we never know the why's of life
yet many, dear one, feel your strife
her light is held in sacred prayer
throughout the days this coming year

my iq ain't even 115
and I know everything
just ask me
see, this is the fvcked up thing
it's not a person's iq it's their personality rating

I dunno what's so complicated about that
even mongoloids love catfish
I don't even haf ta know how to spell it
just how to bait a hook
mensa still feels the sunshine the same way
when the sunshine warms the face

IQ tests can kiss my ass
I dam.n near flunked out and got the highest score in the country on the ASVAB
and yanno I'm an idiot
the whole social system is directed by morons
most of the problem is that these idiots don't know how to teach
when a chic need's a g.e.d. , I change x's and y's into oranges and a peach
it's all literary illusion
I'm guessing that pythagoras wrote a few poems

the school systems ain't educational
they're political
and, I wrote a report for my eight year old myself and they gave him a zero
yeah, I'm goin up there
hope y'all can chip in for bail
I figured ex could handle all this shyt cause she's a woman
but, something needs done
Look Out Art School! Here Comes the Word Painter!
I'm even gonna dramatically remove the tie from my ponytail..
that'll shut 'em all the fvck up when they see my naturally curly temper..

edit: didn't realize I was toasting a new page, darlin.. lol

     Just kidding ~

     Fragrance divine bouquets of mind lasting blossoms
       Breathe in fresh love of scent a tickle in clarity of mind
         Shrieks in laughter little smiles with brownie crumbs
           Upon these tikes a future of might’s … grow mankind

i know it is exhausting
and i can see the perfection
of why you are his mother
and he is your son....
i have no other words
just a very strong sense
of the higher purpose
that has come through
the universe to bring
each of you to this day.
sending strength and deep admiration.
and thank you for your dear gran's chocolate concoction!
i shall try to make it for my youngest son's very soon to be 15th birthday
which will make him so happy
and my daughter will be here for most of August this year
and she will love making it
because besides being another chocolateholic....
seems to run in my family....
at 25, she's a much better cook thank me! (thankfully) :)

congrats on the 4.0! I didn't know you had a thread about kids.....I have a few written for the kids and grandkids...

Bella

Hopelessly in love with
your apricot skin
your platinum hair

Your sturdy body
smooth and unblemished
the tiny moons of fingernails
and perfect chiclet teeth

your unbounded potential
your unfailing generosity
your ferocious rivalry

your joy and freshness
your guileless mind
your simplicity
your complexity

my nepotistic heart
shouts mine
embrace the bones and flesh I've made
one step removed
my little dandelion spore
to conquer worlds
I'll never see
I gently set you free

Enjoy your two weeks, Sunshine Sweetheart. You have definitely earned them. Some day we will both look back at all of the time we spent studying things we never thought we would, losing sleep, losing quality time with those we care about, and it will all seem an instant, as we reap the rewards of our time and efforts...That is what I keep tellin myself anyway....Hope to see you over break. Two finals back to back tomorrow(today actually) and I will be enjoying some off time too..

dear jujub,
sending prayers to you and your beautiful boys three....
and may elijahblue's granny move through this phase as peacefully
and painlessly as possible....I also lost one very special mother figure
to cancer so very quickly last year....and yet I still feel her blessing
as my love flows to her, hers returns to me and my family and so many
with a strength I can't really describe, but feel deeply.
may you and your boys stay wrapped in the blanket of love tenderly
and gently helping you through all that is now and will come to be....
as it is meant to be.....celebrating her beauty reflecting in all her family.
love,
d.

JuJuBe,

I remember having to tell my baby her cousin and best friend was killed in a car accident when she was 5. Never ever easy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and that sweet boy.

A glass full of water
Half empty or half full
Only in the spirits of the ones that passed watching over us do we get the whole pitcher of a life well lived
Why cry tears
Soft reminessence of a time worth well lived
Life carries up on the etherial plane
Well deserved memories of happieness up above in the skies above somewhere out there
In all the heart of hearts
Stop tearing yourself apart
A well deserved praise from one's gone up to the mystic aura of the skies rays
Hoping you come to join them but not now
You have so much to treasure so much to learn
And that's why I'm here
To show you my world

keep in touch mama
Love B :D

Hi JuJu, thoughts and good wishes headed your way. Just stumbled on this great thread. Hope you don't mind if I repost something here that fits the theme. True story put to rhyme:

concerned as I was
for my son's high fever
and being new at this
I picked up the receiver
as late as it was
doc's office was closed
but the triage nurse
was calm and composed
I told her his temp
was high and rising
and as a brand new dad
I needed advising
I thought how nice
her concern for me
how was I taking it
well, as calm as can be
no she said
interjectedly
orally or
rectally

aww, hang in there sweets...and pull your little mannie close. Perhaps the back slide is because of Christmas Vacation? His routine is shot...

I have my fingers crossed on the gentleman. And on your baby...

I did everything to get in trouble and the worst I recieved was banned from the bus and it was a pretty aggressive decision of mine to urinate in a glove and fling it at a wanna be gangster who thought he was the s.hit. Turned out he was the s... wait he was just p.issed off but all he called me was a phycho :P.

But it got me thinking how many chances I recieved to turn my life around and these pricks at a school board get more prickish by the second at the good kids. Hang in there momma. Your other son, Brand

better to be pissed off then pissed on? Or both haha

With blood shot eyes I watch you sleeping
The moment calls can she hear me
Can she hear me
If I calls her name
Would she know me
Would she feel my shame
Your tears don't fall
They crash around you
The sound may cause
But the memories deny you
Your tears don't fall
They crash around you
Everyday

Well Tonya he is a sure genius for sure. Don't forget even Eighnstien was diagnosed with major depression and was considered a lunatic in his days for example. Now we look at him as the brightest minds ever! Point is it's stressful living everyday no respect and no chance to prove how smart your son can truly be and everyone just wants to make money off a cause of how to satisfy their own needs. Those who don't know I am diagnosed with schizophrenia paranoia no one could help me till I helped myself then everything just clicked. I've been through so much stress I could feel my hands gripping my heart from the pain that stigmitized from there. So much stress on my head that I felt my brain on fire at times. And sometimes so much stress in my chest I had to go to the ER cause it felt I was having a heart attack. Luckily just stress. But so much pain and frustration it brought forth of suicide and murder I didn't want to live I just wanted to go out the hard way. Joined the Corps for a day regardless of my condition to kill or be killed. That's when they shipped me away back home after finding phychotrophic drugs in my system. Basically it made me more bitter more depressed and I tried constantly to slit my throat. I needed help!

It wasn't until I found strength through poetry I found such beauty in myself and others I found on Plenty of Fish for example. Thank you all for all you've done and I can never repay your generosity. Truely thank you Tonya for taking me under your wing and sharing my story with you and now others can see my frustrations I endured. I only hope I can save another life out there.

Once more Tonya in 8th grade I scored a 14 on the ACT in 8th grade! :) Sometimes it takes a brilliant mind to endure the strengh the weak minded can't handle. Again thank you I only hope to make everyone happy that I can. thank you.
