Fear Factor.

My head is buzzing, my hands are shaking,
Do you hear the noise my heart is making?

I bite my nails, I tap my feet,
Should I fight it or just retreat?

My mouth is dry, my legs are jelly,
I have a sick feeling deep in my belly.

Can I do it? I don't know.
I hope my terror doesn't show.

I've gotta keep my cool and try to be brave,
though nervous energy hits me in waves.

At the very least I'll be alert.
Anyway, what does a little fear hurt?

Ode to Oatmeal

Sweet, warm, thick and gooey,
Oh so soft and oh so chewey.

It's yummy when it's hot and pasty,
Throw in raisins, it's even more tasty!

I like warming my hands on the bowl
when the weather's kind of cold.

Of all the breakfast foods there are,
This one beats them out by far,

'Cause nothing compares to how I feel
When I'm eating a bowl of delicious oatmeal!

How, Now, Time-Line?

Can someone tell me how,
the distant future turned to now?
"Yesterday, where art thou?"
I ask, as time continues to plow.
There's no way to rewind;
Life seems to go in one straight line.
Might as well put it out of my mind,
and try to have a good time. ^_^

Adam Turns 12

Happy Birthday Adam!

I'm very excited you're turning 12
You must be quite proud of yourself

Just look at you, my preteen bro.
Many years behind you, but lots more to go

I'm sure this will be your best birthday yet
One filled with joys you will never forget

And after the end of this wonderful day
May life keep on bringing awesome things your way!

These are the Things I'm Thankful For

The green of the grass, the blue of the sky,
the colorful flowers that make you sigh.

The peaceful nights, the sunny days,
the beautiful earth upon which we gaze.

The mice that squeak, the lions that roar,
the fishes that swim, the birds that soar.
These are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

The sand that is dry, the sea that is wet,
the sun that rises and also sets.

The ears that listen, the mouth that talks,
the friend that goes with you on walks.

The wonderful world we have to explore,
the mystery that lies behind every door.
These are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

The adventure in a book, the beauty in art,
the song that is written from the heart.

My healthy body, my quick, sharp mind,
the soul I have that is gentle and kind.

The life I've led and the life still in store,
even though no one's keeping score,
these are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall,
the season I love best of all.

The warmth of a kitchen, the smell of great food,
your friends and family and all that is good.

I'm thankful for all these things and more,
honestly, truly, to my very core.
Yes, these are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

Friday the 13th

I don't believe in Friday the 13th,
I am not superstitious.
A black cat crossing my path
won't make me sleep with the fishes.

Friday the 13th is just a myth,
breaking a mirror isn't bad luck.
Except when it comes out of your allowance,
then it certainly sucks. ~,~

Nothing will happen on Friday the 13th
if you open an umbrella indoors.
You'll be fine if you walk under a ladder,
or spill some salt on the floor.

But whatever you do on Friday the 13th,
remember to be alert!
If you trip on a crack and break your back,
well... I don't have to tell you that that'll hurt. 0,o


The wind.
It rustles outside my window.
It whispers to me.
I wish I knew what it was saying.

Flight Of Dreams

The clouds are huge puffs
of fine white pillow stuffing.
That's what I believe.

They float in the sky,
slowly, lazily almost,
because there's no rush.

The wind is quite strong.
It's God's never-ending breath,
swirling around us.

He/ She /It /They blow
on the clouds, pushing them all
across the big blue.

The clouds' destiny
is a mystery that's been
hidden from humans.

But someday I will
fly to the clouds, higher up
than anybody.

I'll shoot hero-like,
straight as an arrow so fast,
that I'll hardly breath.

I won't look down as
I slice through the air, focused
instead on my goal.
Finally I'm there,
hovering beside my cloud,
and I climb on it.

It makes the softest
bed you'll ever know in life.
It supports my weight.

Curious, I peek
over the edge of my puff.
Do my eyes deceive?

Below are mountains,
oceans and trees, and many
tiny points of light.

My world is wondrous,
and I'm high above it all!
Well, not entirely.

My heart is still down
on Earth, with a friend I miss.
I must go back home.

I jump off the cloud
with no fear whatsoever.
Life is but a dream.

God's wind lets me drift
very gently down, as if
I were a feather.

You see me falling,
but you're in time to catch me
in your waiting arms.
I open my eyes,
see the happy way you look
at me, and I smile.

We lie in a field
much softer than any cloud,
and we're holding hands.

My head still goes up
in the sky sometimes, but I'll
never leave you, friend.

My Good Ole Dad

My father Benny (that's his name) is the best.
He is better than all the rest,
Funny and kind,
With a very sharp mind.
I love him very dearly.
I say so quite sincerely,
I do.
Benny, I love you,
Like the sky and oceans are
I can never be blue,
So long as I have you.
^,^ My good ole dad. ^,^
Full of laughter and smiles,
Happiness and piles
Of good times.
For listening and caring,
For loving and sharing,
I thank god every day
That you're mine.
My good ole dad.
