A faint indication of your silhouette

blocks the beam of light

that shines on a darkened area,

diminishing partial light to such degree,

the light variation cast the shadow

you leave behind.

Children follow in their parent’s footsteps,

nonchalant and carefree;

blending love and understanding

assures the seeds your breed exceed

with just enough zest,

leaving them never feeing second-best.

Conflicts, peer and convictions

put us through many test. Goals and needs must be met

in order to succeed.


by Carolyn Lott-Dooley

From infancy until maturity,

I depended on my parents;

I listened to their views and opinions,

in or out of tune,

in no predictable pattern or fashion;

advice, rules and spankings

were received routinely on a daily basis.

Through we must live by trial and error.

I’ve crawled…stumbled into trouble…,

traveled many highways…,

I’ve taken many right and wrong routes.

Life is actually similar to a bottle of wine

or ladder,

we scale, we fall, we climb high and low,

setbacks and gratifications

Must be taken in stride,

never give up or lose your pride.

Everyone should make goals. I do not like to but sometimes I do and try to follow them and get them to work out. sometime they do and sometimes not. But at least I attempt to get my life into so order and not be too chaotic.
