Beauty Within

Beauty Within

Though you may not have petals that bloom

For you in nature there is still room

Though not picket for a bouquet

You are beautiful in your own way

Nature has a way of teaching lessons its true

For each one me and you

We all have beauty in different ways

Just like this weed that in the wind sways

So look inside and let the world see

What beauty lies within you and me



To get through this life of unknown

We have to look how much we’ve grown

From the mistakes we make

Look at the lessons we take

Growing and learning more

Sometimes it make our sole sore

But stronger we will be

The more we learn and see

So look inside yourself and look how much you’ve grown

In this life of the unknown

Words Down

My mind yells put this down and get it out

I can not ignore what is in my head

Before it would have been pen and paper

Now it is the clicking of keys typing as fast as I can

Word go down without a thought

My mind to the front it has brought

How to get them down for the world to see

What ever I put down it will be

No corrections, no mistakes

I will put it down no matter what it takes

The words you see are coming fast

I know this can’t last

So put them down and let them stay

All these words they must play

Here I go I’m near the end

Putting down the last few words

Get them down with out hesitation

Here it is the finally line

My mind has run out of Rhyme

This was absolutely written with no thought of what I was writing. I just put down pretty much whatever came to my head.


A photo of a ceiling light I took…doing a little abstract photography


Little light hanging above me

Helps so I don’t fall you see

Provides me light when it is dark

With light the difference can be stark

Like this light upon the ceiling

There is my inner lighted feeling

This light that is inside of me

For it to can help me see

When things may be dark inside my head

My light it can be said

Can light the way so I don’t fall

Or run into my heads only little wall

Light you can see can be in or out

With this there is no doubt

Light it guides the way

Through the darkest day
