Worlds Apart, Where Do I Start…..

The Wind carries our wishes and prayers to the stars
Water carries our emotions to distant shores so far
Fire shows our passions of love how to burn and melt together as one
Earth nurtures that love, bringing us together under the moon and sun
This is most beautiful and taking to heart these words of nature and us makes me feel that the element can be deadly but also a safe refuge for us

Life is Pain

Alvin's Web Home

By Alvin Benatovich – April 23, 2013

Between the final breath
And moment of birth
We know too well
Pain on earth

From serious injury
There comes real pain
Enough to convince you
You’re going insane

But the most insidious
Agony yet met
Is knowing
An unspoken regret

Live each day
As if you’re last
Speak your mind
You can’t relive the past

Poem for the Old Lady that Lived in a Shoe

Poetic Trials

She had always wanted to be a mother

For as long as she could remember

So took them all in

Friends, family, children and pets

 

Until her home was overflowing

With kindness, laughter and mirth

She had been blessed with a big heart

And gentle hands

 

So they all come to live

In her little house in the shape of a boot

She makes sure they are warm

She makes sure they are loved

 

In a world of misplaced hearts and broken toys

People tend to hurt more than loved

So she will be their mother

Doctoring wounds and soothing pain

 

Knowing, we will never understand

Everything she gave freely

but understanding

we knew she always had an open door

Nice Girls Finish Last Too!

TheReporterandTheGirlMINUSTheSuperMan!

This is in response to Eva Finn’s post “Nice guys finish last, not because…”

So a lot of guys came out of the woodwork– a bit defensive, stressing the guy in the story wasn’t really “nice” and arguing what constitutes a “nice guy” or a “gentleman”.

Well maybe at some point, Jon was a nice guy or you were a nice guy, or that juror number 6 was a nice guy too; but you know what all the “nice guys” have in common? They met their Queen B who opened them up and set their hearts on fire while they were still breathing.

And girls, you know this has happened to you too! You have been stomped on and may have even lit a match yourself.

We were all “nice” once–

when we met someone that we thought as being special, connected, kindred souls. You poured your heart into doing…
