A Giant Leap

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.

Thomas Jefferson

Be not afraid
to take a giant leap
from a mountain that’s steep.

Only have faith
that a net will form
beneath your feet.

The Crowd

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched — they must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

Just like the cloud
the crowd that was so loud
moments ago
now dissipates
like it was never even there.

all you need is love

LOVE is what Elizabeth expresses through this poem, that is the home of kindness because it shares a philosophy that will help humanity transcend violence and negativity

The Definition of Gorgeous Chaos

Riding in the backseat of my moms 1989 Cadillac Eldorado listening to the oldies station, I heard my first glimpse of the answer: “All you need is LOVE” by The Beatles.
Love is all around us. Love is where life lives. Of course, in order for McCartney’s words to ring true we must truly understand the definition of the word ‘LoVe’. Love is not just a word we say.
Love is not always kisses & snuggles. Love is not a big, gorgeous wedding. Love is not sunshine & cupcakes for days. Love is not life filled with perfection. Love is a CHOICE and it takes WORK!
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is never boastful. LOVE is also understanding, compassionate, empathetic, trustworthy, tolerant, peaceful, loyal, hopeful & honest.
Love is all encompassing. Love is buying a cup of coffee for a homeless person. Love is truly understanding other human…

Do You Know?

I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.

Brian Tracy

Do you know?
how many poets
there are in this big wide world.
some of them young, some, very old.
yet all of them so bold,
even in this cold world
that would not hold their hand
when they try to hold, gold
within the lines of their rhymes.


Do you know?
how many pens bleed
to satiate the need
of plenty pensive poets
to feed off writing against greed
so that they one day have the strength
to walk with smile a mile in length
to make the world heed
the poetry of life that has for so long freed
many lovers of life in ages long before.


I know!
poets that have gone mad
off the feeling of being glad
that they actually became sad
like a dad who had
just lost his daughter dead
having bled from being fed poison bread.


I know!
of plenty practitioners of poetry
whose history is rooted like a tree
in losing themselves in a reality
conjured up by their ability
to swim the deep depths
of their imagination.

Sonder

Light Behind The Cloud ✨

I have always been so self absorbed,
And I have always my vicinity ignored,

I have never truly seen from another’s eyes,
And I only thought to look when they were my allies.

I have never wondered what they were going through,
Oh, I only ever focused on what they put me through,

But when I stop and I stare at the world passing me by,
I realize there is so much life underneath a common sky.

Each and every passerby is living their own life,
Each and every one of them is facing their own strife,

And when I stop to understand where they might be coming from,
From ill feelings and negativity I am granted freedom.
