Faulty System

Pardon my feelings They often cloud my judgment.  I have a weakness  For doing and saying what I feel, Instead of what I know is right.  It's a faulty system that works within me.  Written by Evelyn Creon 

Is This Our Ideal Life?

Image
Everywhere we look We see people wearing masks. 
Walking down the street  We try avoiding everyone's path.  We can't look anyone in the eye  And act like everything's alright. 
We all live in fear,  Like we're about to die.  We're all freaking out  About everything we hear. 
Shouting our doubts  In everyone's ears.  Trying to scare people  Into fearing what we fear.
Is this sad sight  how we should live our lives?  Hiding in the shadows  Afraid to be happy or to thrive. 
Is it good for our health  when we are drowning in fear: Stuck in depression, Sadness, and despair? 
We can't even smile  to the people we pass.  They won't see it  through our stifling mask. 
Is this our ideal life, and if it's not then what is?

Kekionga Pathway Adventure

I've been visiting family in Decatur Indiana for the past week. This morning I enjoyed a peaceful walk by the river. I thought I'd share some of the photos. 









The Sledding Hill

Image
The hill was steep,The snow was light, Mud and sticks, Oh, what a sight.  "Let's try to sled!" We all said. 
The first to try  The deathly ramp  Was our cousin Matt, Who lived with us.  He flew down the hill  With nothing to lose.
So, we soon followed  In pursuit.  At top speed  We sped, oh, the thrill Of racing hearts, And winter's chill.
Over and over again  We flew down that  Deadly track.  Then it happened,  Our cousin went sailing  Off his sled into the air. 
We screamed in pain, "Are you okay?"  As we watched him land  On a pile of logs. He rolled off the pile Into a ball. 
Down we ran As fast as we could.  "I'll be fine!"  He managed to grunt.  Mom was told the story, And banded the hill for life.  Written by Evelyn Creon

Who are You?

Image
Who are you? I do not know. 
YOU are a stranger tall and old. I've met you once or twice before, Maybe even thrice. 
YOU seem so sweet and so nice, But  people aren't always what they seem, And that's why I question now. 
Should I let my guard down  And let you see me for me?
