When You Are Defiant, Yet Strong

You're going to want to stand up Face all those that did you wrong. You'll have to wait a while for this When you are defiant, yet strong. Someday you'll sit at the table Wondering why you got so mad. Now you sit so happy and content Not so alone, and sad. First you'll have... Continue Reading →


You're going to have to cry a lot Someday you'll have to shoot to kill Right now isn't the time for that Today there is no thrill. You really need to breathe a bit You're going to have to take it slow, Someday you'll probably blurt it out When they desire a lovely show. Someday... Continue Reading →

Through the Door

Saving myself from grace May have left some indignation on the path. The road that leads me to temptation Is riddled with my wrath.

What Does It Mean?

Soft hands Worn through time Found reaching out In Scottish roots With an Irish heart. Though time prevailed We never did. Caught in glimpses Of what we were In those moments Nobody can take from us.
