Haiku ~ My Future

Leave a comment

I will not dwell on
My past experiences
That does me no good

I cannot rely
On what ifs or the maybes
I have to move on

What will be will be
God alone knows my future
I will not assume

Maybe one day soon
The answers will be made clear
Soon I hope indeed

Haiku ~ Letting Go

Leave a comment

When do you let go

When do you say your good byes

Why is it so hard

No one knows just how

Why when where or what have you

So many unknowns

First you say one thing

Then your actions contradict

What you have first said

How am I to know

That I can rely on you

To remain constant

Constant in your deeds

And not wavering in words

Can I be certain

No one is perfect

We all say and do some things

Without first thinking

That makes us human

But we have to remember

Life will still go on

Times are still changing

You cannot remain the same

Stuck in your old ways

Forgive and forget

Dwell not on what has happend

Look towards the future

Will I be around

Or will you push me away

Will I have let go

Or will you let go

Of the things you cannot change

And try to move on

Sure you are sorry

Now for the things that you said

They have left my mind

See holding grudges

Is not something that I do

To live and let live

That is my mantra

Forgive to be forgiven

Are you letting go

Haiku ~ What It Is

Leave a comment

It is what it is

But what is it exactly

To the naked eye

 

More than what you see

Or more of what you do not

Who alone can tell

 

Imaginations

Running wild with these unknowns

Who knows what it is

 

Possibilities

Of what it could really be

Are almost endless

 

What it is to me

Is something different to you

Which view is correct

 

Neither view is wrong

With differing opinions

It is what it is

Loss

Leave a comment

My friend lost his dad

His mother lost her husband

A  sad day indeed

Hurtful words were said

Just days before tragedy

No one could have known

Though wrongs were made right

No bitterness between them

His conscience is clear

Like father like son

They could not stay mad for long

No bods were broken

He lived many years

He is in a better place

To suffer no more

Parental Insight

Leave a comment

I sometimes wonder

Just what my life would be like

Without three children

I could have become

Any one of my dreams

That I once hoped for

Became a parent

Before I was quite ready

Had to sacrifice

Gave up school dances

Many of my childhood friends

Life as I knew it

With a new outlook

As mother to a baby

I did not plan for

While stressful at times

I make the best of this life

What else can I do

I cannot give up

They did not ask to be here

Those choices I made

I have not been dealt

A hand with an easy win

I play my cards right

While full of unknowns

Parenting is quite a task

One that I embrace

I love my babies

I know that they are just kids

They will get better

I must continue

To magnify the positives

In all that they do

I must also strive

For guidance and patience too

When I feel torn down

I had that someone

Who never gave up on me

And now I have them

So I will be there

For whenever they should call

Cause I am their mom
