Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.~Robert Frost

How’s That Working For You

Hunched in a corner

absent of ones honor.

What should I do

in order to stay true

of what comes naturally

for ME?

My hands are tied,

and the welts these ropes leave

are permanent,

but I’m hell bent

on getting past this nightmare.

Life’s just not fair.

We’re not suppose to compare

our accomplishments or failures,

but work together,

pray together,

and be on our way


unless otherwise directed

by the Father.

No one man is an island,

but sometimes it gets to the point

to where,

like a prisoner,

I feel like busting out

of this joint.

Being on your own

not because you’re grown…

grown folks have responsibilities.

They don’t hide in the shadows,

trading todays for tomorrows,

throwing rocks and hiding their hands

making unrealistic demands

taking break after break

can’t hit a lick at a snake

having someone else’s cake

and eating it too

in order to receive what

you think is due.

Why is that so hard for you?

~~Dorothy Sells Clover


 The Art of Marriage Happiness

in marriage is not something that just happens.

A good marriage must be created.

In the art of marriage the little things don’t just matter they are the big things….

it’s never being too old to hold hands.It is remembering to say “I love you”

at least once a day

It’s never going to sleep angry

Making the effort to figure things out.

It is at no time taking the other for granted.

The courtship should never end with the honeymoon

Your life together is the greatest trip you will take together

It is having a mutual sense of value and common objectives.

It is standing together united.

It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

It is doing things for each other, not in the mindset of having to but loving to

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is not looking for perfection in each other but knowing that

with your faults you are perfect for each other.

It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor is a MUST.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is giving each other the atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is finding room for individual love to grow in unison.

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is establishing a relationship in which independence is equal,

dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner

It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best

Marriage is love from two becoming one
