An intro to my poetry pages....or a walk on my life's road.....some paths I had no choice in taking.....
The following pages are my attempts to express my feelings on the joy, pain, loss and love that I have had in my life; some are ADULT feelings, for adult actions, and may contain words and situations that are offensive to some. Those pages or poems will be plainly marked with a warning* symbol, so that it will be your choice to read them.  I do not apologize for my words or my thoughts, as they are true for me, if not for all.  Men and women do NOT always act with morality, and often their words and thoughts are not used with censors in mind; life can be harsh and cruel, therefore, at times our descriptions of it must also be the same.  I hope that you can relate to what you read, even if you do not like it; but if not, do not condemn the writer, only the situations that made her feel that way, and write down what she felt.....
IS IT ALL A DREAM.....THIS LIFE WE LEAD?

We reach out, lunging at life with unexplainable vehemence, and recoiling with equal speed as we are hurt by situations that do not live up to our expectations.  We find ourselves almost desperate over and definitely frustrated by, and about, our attempts to make things go the way we feel that they should.  We try constantly to do that which we believe is right , only to be thwarted by all around us----people and things ;  we follow the advice which is given to us by a friend and find that it is against the advice of someone else.  No matter who we listen to, we insult one of them; and if we ignore both of them and do our "own" thing, then everyone seems to hate us.   Yet we struggle onward and slowly upward; hiding occasionally from the world around us, other times running with foolish bravado right into that which frightens us the most; being hurt by all that we see surrounding us, yet not giving in to the temptation to strike back.  Then finally when we reach a certain plateau or breathing point, we look back and wonder what would happen if we had it to do all over again; if we are wise these are just idle dreams and not the basis of the rest of our lives, for we cannot live in the past.  As we look back we can often relive a situation so vividly, and realistically that it seems to have only happened seconds ago.....
