Brimming

“Brimming.

That’s what it is,

I want to get

to a place

where my sentences

enact brimming.”

Poem:

through the rapids and over the falls
life giving water courses through all
even the human body averages sixty percent water
but it is the soul that contains all that can matter

to keep your soul in that happy place, love
place all of your faith in a Power from above
always striving to live life on God’s terms
the happiest know how to take turns

recovery is to satisfy body, mind and spirit
an unfounded fear of change will inhibit
everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain
you cant have a rainbow without some rain

are you ready to accept todays changes
every day demands emotional exchanges
yesterdays sobriety is not guaranteed today
it is for strength and courage that we pray

emotional strength means we are willing to accept
to cleanse the soul we have wept
courage is the faith to face the unknown
with love our spiritual foundation has grown

today, allow your soul to fly happy and free
be the person your God wants you to be

Little Words

When you are gone,
there is nor bloom nor leaf,
Nor singing sea at night,

nor silver birds;
And I can only stare,

and shape my grief
In little words.


Dorothy Parker

was loved and knew how to love

Poem:

.

here’s hoping that your every day is a Sunday
giving your Higher Power a day to rest
having gratitude for each and every day
doing His will makes it the best

accepting life without a worry
always trying to do the next right thing
do it now so later you won’t have to hurry
please don’t cry over the broken shoe string

begin each day with an attitude of gratitude
best to know that you have a choice
better to be seen than being viewed
show your love by using a happy voice

don’t pay Peter by what from Paul you rob
always the choice, happiness is an inside job
