Don’t Worry, Pray

The title reminds me of the song by Bobby McFerrin, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”  Let’s face it, it’s hard to be happy when you’re worrying.  The flood of negative emotions and thoughts leave you dry and empty.  Unable to concentrate on the task at hand.  It’s like our minds have conspired against us, only to find out later that such […]

Stolen Heart

I was lying in bed one nightIn the plains of KansasWhen I heard a voiceCame out of nowhere Like a shooting starIn the vast of empty skiesThe freezing cold rainAnd the dreaded wintry mix Could not hideIt’s lightShining so brightThat whoever stares at itWould loss ones sight I heard her voiceCalled my nameLike she’d known meFrom all the agesThat has been forgottenWhen the ancients passed. To my surprisedShe opened up and gave her trustTo a stranger like meWhom she barely knew In return I opened my heartI let the doors wide openSo she could come and goWhenever she wants Little did I knowThe moment she gained my trustThat she would steal my heartAnd I don’t thinkShe’ll return it back Stolen heart, stolen heartHow will I everGet you back She has goneTo the deepsWhere thatFabled AtlantisUsed to reside.

No Regrets

I’ve always been ask if I have any regrets marrying my former spouse.  Could I have prevented it if I listened to the counsel of my friends and the words of wisdom from my own mother (they were all against it).  I’ve always been told that it was such a waste-fourteen years-and that’s just it.  I do admit they are […]

Marriage is not for you..

if you don’t want someone telling you what to do. if you’re not financially responsible. if you don’t want someone to rearrange your furniture or wardrobe. if you have a problem putting the toilet seat up or too lazy to refill the toilet paper. if you loathe self-sacrifice. if you’re a burden to each other. if you can’t keep your fly closed or keep your legs closed. if you think it’s the answer to all your troubles. if you think life will be easier. if you just want to be taken care of. if your career takes precedence above all else. if you dislike doing house chores. if you love the company of your friends more than your companion. if you can’t hold your tongue. if you  dread the idea of sleeping with only one individual for the rest of your life. if you’re dominating. if you find it repulsive to compromise and work out differences. if you can’t manage your anger. if you like to hold grudges and score cards. if you hate doing dishes. if you despised cooking. if your seam burst every time a button is press. if you craved instant gratification. if you take things for granted, whine about every thing and appreciate nothing. if you don’t like to explain things over and over. if you don’t like being asked the same questions and you give the same answer, then asked the same question again. if […]

Slippery Slope

Nothing is more painful than someone breaking your heart.  Especially if you’ve been together for so  many years that you wouldn’t even think that something stomach crunching would happen.  You would never dreamed  the idea of betrayal, separation and divorce.  Not once that it ever crossed your mind.  They were no red flags, no signs.  It’s like a flash of […]
