America’s Cookies

I cram more than I can chew. With each bite, I see that little girl I once was. A brown vest adorned with many patches and a troop number. I sold America's precious cookies. I learned how to survive the wilderness. I spent precious time with my mother as I gained my skills. The cookies … Continue reading America’s Cookies

Hope

If you heard my story, you're jaw would drop. I tell my past not for pitty nor for self-regard. I share the triumphs to help inspire. My age might be young, but my wisdom is older than an oak tree.

Keepsake

This is the moment, I'd remember for the rest of my life. I breathe deep, stare just a little longer at the beautiful scene. I withhold a napkin to wipe my tears later.

Writing Tree

Day in, day out my trade enhances with each marked out word, ink stain, and diluted thoughts. My writing is like a tree each leaf a new fan, each ring a new poem, all growing strong.

My Tune

The room grows dark velvet curtains are drawn, the crowd awaits. A light shines down, hitting me like sun rays through a window. Each breathe of air turns into rhythmic notes, cascading from the bell of my golden saxophone. Jazz fills the empty space throughout the room. The room grows dark velvet curtains are drawn, … Continue reading My Tune
