The Great Unknown 

Peering out of the darkness
Catching rays of light
It's the hope, the sign, the first step
The image of starting new
Leading to a greater you

Open your heart, open your mind
Let God's hands be the guide
Follow the passion, the dream
Which once was the drive inside

Make the choice, make it now
The one to change
A way to rearrange
Your adventure must begin somehow

It's not too late
Don't stop to think or hesitate
The great unknown
A journey and happiness to be grown​​



Always Together Always Strong

Keeping it in, bottling it up
Handling each obstacle
Never letting it show
The struggles or the worry
Always together, always strong


Hoping and wishing for a change
Trying a new approach, a new mindset
Finding a new light to guide the way
Wishing to fix it all alone
Keeping up appearances

 Restraining from asking for help
Fumbling and making it through
Without cracking under pressure
Avoiding the possibility of failure
Always together, always strong

 Realizing there is no other way
Putting pride and worry aside
Deciding to ask those close to listen
Those who would not judge or question
If only to listen and understand



By the Sea


Happiness comes by the sea,
Where the waves crash against the shore.

 Happiness comes by the sea,

As the sand crunches under bare feet.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
Where children build sandcastles.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
As the rest of the world melts away.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
Where the hot sun glows against the water.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
As the smell of saltwater fills the air.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
Where problems seem so far.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
As families spend time in each other’s company.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
Where many come to forget the daily grind.

 Happiness comes by the sea,
As people meet for the very first time.



Pencil and Paper


Pencil and paper,
Holding so many possibilities,
Giving freedom to stories.

 Pencil and paper,
Waiting for answers to a test,
Allowing words to become reality.

 Pencil and paper,
Collecting unspoken truths,
Encouraging creativity to be unleashed.

 Paper and pencil,
Challenging ideas to exist,
Gathering words of wisdom.

 Pencil and paper,
Joining the existent and the nonexistent,
Offering a future to the voice behind the words.



A Greater You

Peering out of the darkness
Catching rays of light
It's the hope, the sign, the first step
The image of starting new
Leading to a greater you

Open your heart, open your mind
Let God's hands be the guide
Follow the passion, the dream
Which once was the drive inside


Make the choice, make it now

The one to change
A way to rearrange
Your adventure must begin somehow

It's not too late
Don't stop to think or hesitate
The great unknown
A journey and happiness to be grown



Dreams await

Dreams await,
Hope remains,
Never too late or impossible.
Not to be forgotten and locked away.

Dreams await,
Hope remains,
For all things imagined.
Ready to be emerged and discovered.

Dreams await,
Hope remains,
More important than what anyone thinks.
Defeating and beating all odds.

Dreams await,
Hope remains,
Creating a future of abundant growth,
With the ability to have acceptance of what can’t be changed.

Dream await,
Hope remains,
Always improving yourself and embracing what you are given,
While working to achieve what was never thought attainable.

Dreams await,
Hope remains,
Willing to admit fault and failure,
Yet humbled and excited to become something greater.



Heading South


Gathering belongings and packing suitcases,
Ending a chapter not yet completed,
Is it right? Is it too soon?

Saying goodbye to an amazing job,
Leaving behind those who mean the most,
Heading south.

No snow and ice coming along,
More sun than clouds ahead,
What was the lake will now be the sea.

Opening another door for opportunity,
Hopeful that the best is yet to come,
New experiences waiting.

Excitement becomes sadness,
Goodbyes bring endless tears,
Is it okay to go now

Wondering what everyone is thinking,
Knowing they don’t understand,
A new stage in life awaits.

New possibilities and success to achieve,
New people to meet and faces to see,
A new life to begin.

Taking the chance,
Hoping for the best,
Risking it all to live out a dream.

Always dreaming of the waves,
Wishing to hear the crash of the ocean,
This is the time to make it happen.

Here it goes,
The risk of a lifetime,
Heading South.
