    New possibilities;
    Will this time be the one?
    Will my fortune change?
    Will I make the grade?

    Old doubts;
    Have I blundered again?
    Did I impress, or depress?
    Should I even bother?

    Self-assurance;
    I am what I am.
    I offer my best.
    I am as good as any.

    Calm acceptance;
    What will be, will be.
    Find another challenge.
    Make today the best.

    Gold stays buried in the mud until someone recognizes its worth.

    The snow has fallen, the storm is past –
    And all the metaphors, like children, come out to play.

    Of "blankets of white", and "hushed winters morn"
    The pundits speak, snug and warm in their lairs.

    While everyday people toil in the chilled air
    With shovels, heaping towers in tribute to the ice.

    Sore backs and aching arms give testament –
    "We fought against the torrent from the sky."

    None speak of their hardship, their minstrel is silent.
    Only the bare ground – soon covered – is witness.

    Who knew?

    Open my mind
    To infinite possibilities of life.
    Wonders await,
    What treasures abound, what strife?

    We hope for joy
    Life's rich bounty full of pleasure.
    A thin veneer
    O'er lay a core bereft of treasure.

    But seek for hope,
    And turn back gloom of night.
    Though darkness calls
    Forever seek the light.

    Not a whit, we defy augury. There is a special providence in the fall of the sparrow. If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all. Since no man of aught he leaves knows, what is't to leave betimes? Let be.

    new life, wild tomorrows
    shattered chains, fallen sorrows
    twisted marshes, binding asps,
    a second skin, a shredded past,

    this will go down on my permanent record

    "T.G.I.F."
    They cried with a roar!
    Slapping my back,
    They rushed towards the door.

    With thoughts about Christmas,
    No one took much heed,
    That all were not joyous,
    That some were in need.

    "But who would be saddened?
    Who'd not have much joy?
    This season of plenty,
    For girls, yea for boys!"

    But some sit in darkness,
    And some sit in cold.
    Some clutch at their coats
    All torn, full of holes.

    We think of ourselves,
    Our kids full of glee.
    Forgetting the many,
    That have not a tree.

    So I'll forego presents,
    And take what I've got,
    To help out those people
    Who's children have not.

    The clock ticks "12:01" –
    A New Year, a new day.
    This construct that marks
    The passage of time,
    The cycle of movement
    Of this place around that thing.
    Is it really new?
    Or have we just
    Returned
    To where we once were
    Before…again.
    This celestial Merry-Go-Round –
    Grab a ring kids!
    Now what?
    What do I do with my shiny…
    Prize?
    I've been here before.
    I'll be here again.
    Roundy-round,
    I'm not dizzy!
    Am I?
    Time…will…tell.

    There are "two sides to every coin".
    True, but is either side "right"?
    Is "heads" better than "tales"?
    They both spend the same.

    My view looks out
    Over the same world as yours.
    You see details that I miss.
    I see vistas that you ignore.

    We're not so different, you and I.
    But we are worlds apart.
    Is there no bridge that can span?
    Is there no word that can soothe?

    I wish not to fight, but
    I will not be constrained;
    To your minutia,
    And you not to my expanse.

    Your apron strings will not bind.
    Your tears will not melt.
    I am strengthened against,
    Lest I fall again and dissolve.

    Come, ride away with me!
    Let the coin stand on edge.
    An impossibility that can happen…
    If…you…try
