Fool’s Gold

She was standing before a crowd of faces
which had Once seemed to smile
but the closer she came
she came to realise that their eyes were vacant-
their heart and soul had taken leave.
That of all the people who had responded to her
call to “Come on board!” her one prized ship
to seek a Great Adventure,
there were only a few faithful to form a crew she might
truly rely on.
She grimaced but shrugged-
for Fool’s Gold has little Worth.

We need to teach

“We need to teach our daughters
The Difference between
A man who flatters her
and a man who compliments her,
a man who spends money on her
and a man who invests in her.
A man who views her as property
and a man who views her properly,
a man who lusts after her
and a man who Loves her.
A man who believes he is God’s gift to woman
and a man who remembers a woman was God’s gift to man
and then we need to teach our sons to be that kind of man”


from whence it came

Sometimes when there is too much give or tension on both ends…
the threads of a friendship start to bend.
Slowly at first, not noticed
but sooner or later, faster and more often
the push of momentum wears even the closest.
We become too tired to sew patches on
knit loose ends back in
before times have gone;

And that oft worn jumper that was loved so well?
Unravels into a ball of string.

String that may have all the potential in the world
but without attention to stop the unfurl…

It easily breaks
and does not keep away the cold.
