How To Build Yourself From Scratch

A good foundation- two feet planted firmly on the ground

Adequate strength- to carry the weight of yourself and others (others are optional)

A mind of your own- a brain that will lead you away from the hive

Emotion- a determining factor of a healthy soul

 

It might not seem like much,

But when you add them all together,

You’ve built yourself

A modest home.

 

 

 

A Year In Review

There were times both happy and sad

Sometimes we were even mad

But you were always by my side

Buckling me in for the long ride.

We took a trip just you and I

With views that made me weep and sigh

And filled my heart with memories

As we looked out over the cold dark seas

Wondering about all the things to come

Leading us back to where we came from.

Then we hit a downward slope

I didn’t know how we could cope

I suffered through pain and being ill

But this year will be better still.
