Mother “Y”


How do you resolve your difference

When you have lived with them all of your life

How do you look at LIFE with open eyes

When those who gave you life

Closed their eyes when they looked at YOU

There comes a point where you must

Leave all your troubles behind

And look into Life with your eyes

Being a child who was told no

For all the wrong reasons

You become that no and

Look for people who you

Know will tell you no

There comes a point where

You must leave all your troubles………

Open your eyes to life

While leaving

all the no’s

  1. This is one of my favorite poems by you.

    We finally tried Basset ice cream the last time we were in Philly. Think you recommended them. I’m not usually an ice cream person and I really liked theirs. It’s creamy and soft almost like gelato which I like.
