I wrote this poem about my Dad it's pretty selfexplanitory


Take Time To Look Into My Eyes:


Take time to look into my eyes
Do you see why I cry,
The pain you caused,
Or the child you lost?
I was your little girl
Who wanted to be the center of your world
But you left your post
When I needed you the most.
You weren't there to wipe away my tears
Or get rid of all my fears.
Can't you see
You weren't who I needed you to be.

-Tonya

When I wrote Touch Me, it has absolutely nothing to do with sparkpeople. I love sparkpeople. The people I've met. emoticon

Touch Me

When I was born, dad rejected me. I was not a boy. He told my mother that he did not want me to send her back. I have three brothers born after me. Dad was to teach the boys and mom was to teach the girls or in my case girl, me. I wanted to work in the garage with dad but he sent me back into the house to help my mother. Mother sent me out to play. Play with whom? My brothers were in the garage with dad. I was all alone growing up. Dad had no use for women in general. My brothers learned that it was fine for them to pick on me and call me stupid. I was alone and stupid. If my family treats me like this, how can I trust school kids, adults or anyone? All of my growing life was alone with no training of any kind. I could not stand knowing I was stupid and alone so I started to get into trouble smoking, sex, alcohol and whatever. I needed relief even if it was just for a few moments. Now I was in the world and stupid. What job could I get? Waitress what else could a stupid person get. My mother tried to convince me to go back to school to better myself. I told her I am stupid what was the point. She said I am not. I said ask the boys. She said they are wrong. Ask dad. She said he is wrong. Well then just ask anyone they will tell you. Mom kept it up. I finally gave in and said okay I will go back to school just to prove to you that I am stupid. It backfired. I found out that I was smart. I still had no life skills. Getting educated did not help me to learn how to live in the world or to make friends or anything. I am in my 20’s and I still am alone. I gave my life to God in 1980. I was about 30 when I married. He beat the pulp out of me. I was still alone. I had a child and now divorced. Single parent and still alone. My daughter is grown and now I am in my 50’s and still alone. I have spent 54 years of my life alone. I became a catholic in March 2008. On one Sunday, the church was asked if they would help the new Catholics in growing. They answered yes. I have had not one phone call. I leave the house to get groceries by myself. I come home by myself. I go for a walk by myself. I go to church by myself. I come home by myself. I go out for coffee by myself. I go out for lunch by myself. I have Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and any other holiday by myself. Everywhere and everything I do is by myself. Whatever I face in my life, I face alone. If I need to pull myself up by the boot straps I do it alone. If I need an encouraging word I have to find it myself. I’d be dead if God didn’t want me alive. He helps me. He helps me again and again but you don’t.

Will you walk a mile in my shoes or do I continue alone?

I think it is better together.

Judgement

Do you look at me as I truly want to be seen
Or is it only your judgment that you see of me
When you judge only me Can you see in my eyes what it is that I need
Perhaps you can tell me where it is I should be
Will your judgment that they believe be the only vision of me
It was your judgment that brought me to my knees
My strength my support soon did run away and flee
You were my foundation don’t you see
My foundation was the key to my destine
When you left there was no one to intercede for me
That left me standing alone though out eternity
I soon found there was no where for me to hide or be
What did they see as they whispered and looked at me
Was it a child or the ugliness that they had breed
Please I beg of you let me be as I cry for you to set me free
What did your judgment decide I should be
A child deviled by the persons they wanted to believe
Why would all who could see
Would not, could not help me flee
From the indignity they place on me
Now it is too late for me to be
I am now alone and cold through out eternity
No blanket of truth did they provide for me
There was no way for me to please thee
As you left me without one word you deserted me without the key to eternity
Now take your heart with you to it hurts to much to be part of me
For there is nothing left for them to see it is all deep inside of me
I have been stripped beyond any curiosity
My soul has faded as my light grows dim
My light, my soul my heart has dies inside of me with no reprieve
There is no tomorrow for me to face it slipped away can’t you see
My hope for the future can never be
Can’t you see that to release me and set me free is what I need
The threats I heard the streets my shelter have released me set me free
I can fly away from the harm that they created for me as I quickly flee
Now those that deceived me depart silently if you please
Let me rest as it should be no more tears fears or insanity
For I am free to dream and believe that I could and I would succeed
You still can not see my reality I am me not a copy of thee
My soul will fade away no longer to be seen
I do not need to hide from the brutality that once crucified me
They are banished from my life they will soon flee
Trapped in their darkest shadows of eternity
Trapped with no one to intercede or plead for them to be set free

ABOUT POETS & POETRY



Poets in awe
beauty of the sea
swimming the ocean
begging to be free

Poetry in motion
Walking the land
Carving out each word
Deep down in the sand

Poets hungry
Devour each page
reach for each meaning
put on a stage

Poetry screams silence
during blackened night
with the glow of the moon
shining silvery white

Poets asleep
thinking each new rhyme
Waltzing the floor
Running in time

Poetry Forever
neither alive or dead
remembering the words
that get stuck in your head

I rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not. (Van Zant)

SINS REVISITED


Hardships incurred
Problems be dealt
This is the worst
I’ve ever felt

Love flown away
Friendships be gone
When this day ends
I will be done

Whispers of glee
Blown by the wind
Please forgive me
For I have sinned

I have held hope
I have fed ire
I have indulged
I have desired

This end is near
I see the light
Lead me this trip
Into the blight

MY LITTLE DAREDEVIL


She runs all over the rooms here
With animals and toys she holds dear
She trips and she falls
“Mommy” she calls
And Mommy wipes away the tears

Hopping and skipping she goes now
Around the dining table WOW
She miscalculates
And ducks a bit late
And hits her head on the chair OW!

Off to her bedroom she gallops
Then off of her bed she jumps up
She lands legs apart
Says, “That wasn’t smart!”
And rubs where it hurts on her rump.

A crazier girl I do not know
She stops as I shake my head “no”
Then to me she runs
Gives me a big hug
And off she goes quick as an arrow

THE BROKEN DOLLIE

A broken dollie was left behind
though no one knows the reason why
the house was deserted and old
but one day, the house got sold

the realtor rushes through
picks up the broken dollie
sees in its eyes, real tears
this can't be real, she fears

she puts the dollie back down
I don't have time for this now
a family is coming to see the place
she welcomes them with a smile on her face

as the parents talk to the realtor
the children, a boy & a girl
run through the yard and on the ground
seeking treasures left around

Molly picks up the broken dollie
notices the broken arm
feels a heart that’s beating
can this be real or just fleeting

A dollie that feels me touching her
this can't be real, dollies don't feel
she thinks to herself 'I must be dreaming'
and then she hears her dollie start screaming.

Pick a bedroom, both of you
the boy runs and finds a room
while molly sits upon the stair
and strokes the broken dollies hair

the voice that screamed, now cooed
upon this dollies face, a smile
the little girls crazy dreams
float upon a magic stream

Mollie mends her dollies broken arm
sure she heard a giggle & laugh
looking down upon her dollies face
she's sure that her dollie has God's grace.

I rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not. (Van Zant)

There are three entries in there, if you want a sample of my stuff. I plan to do more in the summer when I'm done school. FIVE MORE TEACHING DAYS!! OWWOW!

Lead me not into temptation; I can find the way myself.

MEMORIES Written For My Grandmother

Ever think about the picture
That your memories paint
How the backdrop’s always brighter
Than the people with whom you acquaint

The vast vividness and color
Like a glorious sunset
Or the glistening of the ocean
And the angels that you’ve met

The pictures that your memories make
Or the smell that sets your heart afire
A kaleidoscope of colors
And the dreams that do inspire

There is no way to get around
The memories of happy & of sad
Or teardrops that fall from your lids
In everything there’s good and bad

So as we sit here and ponder
What happened to you and me?
We often wonder how it is
What it was or will soon be

Our thoughts are gathered together
Packaged neatly and put away
Hidden deep within the folds of your mind
Where you hope they’ll always stay

But then that smell brings you back
Or maybe a song or note you heard
It brings forth a smile or a frown
And soon your eyes are blurred

With tears dripping ever so slow
Your mind brings back memories that last
Sometimes wishing you could go back
To the pictures and thoughts of your past

The man you dream of is long gone
He didn’t leave you but is dead and buried
All you have left are the memories
Of that wonderful man you married

He left you with some children
And a gladness that you met
You had a good life with him
One you will never ever forget


I rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not. (Van Zant)

I hope you don't mind if I join in here... :)

~~Inner Sanctum~~

Paradise lost
Living in a dream
Darkness immense
Suffering scream

Powerful voice
So loud so loud
Down from above
Beat down the proud

Hearing the force
Waiting below
Hold on tighter
Cannot let go

Pulling so hard
Struggling within
Biting the ropes
Cutting of skin

Follow me up
Braving the cold
Trial of life
Join with the bold

Remember that night before our fight. When you stubbed your toe and I kissed your nose and the rain soaked us through like the summer rains do. When I told you I loved you it was all that I knew.

But you tore me a wound like a sad song would do and I screamed out you're name with hurt blood in my veins. And as day turns to night in this city called life the darkest heart beats no longer alive.

And I wonder...When your hand brushes my cheek with this scar so deep will you remember the hand you’ve dealt me.


Peace Out Girl Scout

OK girls, sorry I have not been on as much but I have had some sad news from some of my friends on line.
Here is one I had in my files, I wrote this one summer morning when we were staying at a place that was between the countryside and the sea ...

An innuendo
As subtle as
A changing wind
Wins its way
Across the ocean
Then subsides as
It ruffles my hair,
Gently caresses my face
And fills me
With anticipation

Your song has only just begun
If only I will listen:
Yes, there it goes again.
I hear sweet notes in
The whistling of the trees,
The rustling of the leaves
And the music gathers
Momentum.

That is so profound, well done Kathy.
It may sound sad but it can be applied to so many situations that we may have experienced at any given time.
You certainly have the gift of writing, keep it up.

why must i be lost in a place of sadness and woe?
why must i cast away those who care, those who love?!
why must i fear the loving hand of a stranger?
i once trusted but now i fear.
i fear the cost of love.
the cost ,it seems, is too high.
i can not risk the pain it may put me through.
so i run away and hide.
in place with out the risk of love interfering.
a place where the people are impartial to me they do not hate but the do not love.
i dont want to be there,
but i can not leave

emoticon work! That is really WOW!

You should put your name to it with a © and date it...that way your name as the author will not be lost in case someone comes across it and uses it.

Nice to have you on board, Chunkymonki, keep up the great work.

sometimes your truth really does seep through
through the sleepy cracks in your crusty shell
and then i glimpse the cold and barren
that i've learned to deny so extremely well
i've tried to rebuff, veto and dismiss
i've tried to discard, challenge and counter
and then, in a squall, your truth crawled up my back
and left me naked on that frigid rock
and left me rubbed raw on your butcher block
