Counting all your blessings
Giving thanks for each new day
Expressing untold gratitude
Has never been your way.

There’s food upon the table
Everything  you’d ever need
A new car and a fine home
But, you’re not tethered or chained to me.

I know you’re longing and you’re wishing
Looking for that something more
You’re anxious and uneasy
There’s something you are  searching  for.

Convinced there’s something out there
Something waiting just for you
Something different and amazing
That will make your dreams come true.

Not my style to try and stop you
It’s not my philosophy
To try and hold you back
To  try and keep you here with me.

My wish is for your happiness
I hope you will  return
But there are many lessons left
That you have yet to learn.

Step back, step away
Get down from the stage
Why can’t you see
The mess that you’ve made?

Stop all your wailing
We’re tired of it all
No matter who suffers
You want your damn wall.

Unraveled, unhinged
Totally out of your mind
A madman, a tyrant
You’ve crossed the line.

You need to be stopped
Impeached and in prison
You’ve colluded with Russia
I consider that treason.

Your family and friends
All birds of a feather
They all need to go
To prison together.

You’ve scammed and you lied
You’ve cheated, you’ve conned
You still seem to think
That you’ve done nothing wrong.

But, when the day comes
And Mueller is through
You can be sure
They’ll be coming for  you.

Walked down to the beach
Wore my jacket and boots
It was so bitter cold
Didn’t know what to do.

I put up my collar
Then put up my hood
Put my hands in my pockets
Didn’t do any good.

The wind was howling
Chilled me to the bone
I thought for a second
Maybe I should head home.

But I ventured on
Walked the shoreline
That’s where I found  her
Thank God,  just in time.

She was lying face down
Her head above water
She could barely speak
She gasped and she stuttered.

I pulled her out
Got her up on the shore
Called 911
Couldn’t do much more.

I took off my jacket
And my flannel shirt
Tried to cover her up
She was cold, she was hurt.

I held her close
Tried to keep her warm
I heard the sirens
I could hear the alarms.

They took her away
Gave me a ride home
I wondered about her
She was there all alone.

I called the ER
Her condition was fair
She was stable and safe
Getting adequate care.

Coincidence? Maybe.
But, we’ll never know
Why I went out that night
Why I needed to go.

Out for a walk
On a cold winter night
So glad that I did
So glad she’s all right.

I won’t give in
To hopeless grief
I’ll just pretend
You are asleep.

Your jacket hangs
Upon the chair
I’ll make believe
That you’re still here.

I’ll make us dinner
A plate for you
Can’t face the loss
What can I do?

I’ll keep you close
I’ll wear your watch
It’s all I have
It’s all I’ve got.

I did the laundry
I washed your clothes
Folded it all
To keep you close.

I wear your t-shirts
Your favorite ones
They make me feel
Less cold, less numb.

Don’t have the answers
Don’t know just why
We didn’t get
To say goodbye.

Upset and so annoyed
Feeling totally frustrated
Can’t seem to make you see
It’s all so complicated.

With blinders on your eyes
You’re a victim of abuse
He clearly has control
You are so clearly being used.

Fixated and consumed
You’re been lured and easily conned
Overtaken and convinced
You’ve been absolutely wronged.

Obsessed, naive and innocent
You never saw it coming
You ignored the signs ahead
Red flags and all the warnings.

Yes, I told you so
But, that doesn’t give me pleasure
Just glad that he is gone
Glad that we are back together.

YOUTUBE:  Stop! In The Name of Love. ….Diana Ross


Your pompous arrogance
And that smug smile upon your face
Demonstrates your lack of
Morality and grace.

Watching from afar
Your house of cards and lies
Soon to crumble and to fall
They’ll be no compromise.

Years of shady deals and trades
Dirty money changing hands
Crooked and corrupted
Such evil twisted plans.

The skimming and the laundering
The loans through foreign banks
By you and family members
All your friends and confidantes.

You soon will be indicted
Impeached and tried in court
No pardons or excuses
No government support.

Hopefully your children
Pence and all your friends
Will all see time in prison
That’s the way it all should end..

Frightened and timid
Anxious and scared
She never speaks up
She never would dare.

Told what to do
Her opinions deferred
Her feelings don’t matter
So seldom are heard.

Stifled, subdued
She sits all alone
Keeps thoughts to herself
When she is at home.

But, in cyberspace
Her spirit thrives.
She expresses herself
It’s where she comes alive.

Respected and noted
Her voice and opinions
On social media
She matters to millions.

But, back at home
Passive and shy
She never questions
She ‘d never ask “why”.

Her husband and children
Tell her what to do
She follows their lead
She never argues.

She sits at the table
Sipping her tea
They know she will always
