"Courage is not having the strength to go on; it's going when you don't have the strength" When you lose anything important to you, There is one thing you must never be tempted to do, You mustn't ever let ill-ease reside, You must stand firm to face the rising tide. It can be hard when it seems as if things are falling apart, I know that I can certainly relate, Persistence and patience must be treated as works of art, No matter the situation which you may state. I lost many things whether friends or a certain goal, There were many times when it almost took its toll, Yet I realized that if I was to allow defeat, There's no telling what consequences others myself included might meet. While frustrating all you can do is wait, Even if it may seem the worst is to be in store, If you're like me those works of art are not a common trait, But like me, you must realize that such facts you can't ignore

When you have the complete ability to do as you please, When getting from point a to point b is a breeze, When you can go to a job without concern, When there isn't a new way from which you must learn- It's true that you are indeed blessed, For those simple everyday tasks for you aren't a test, It can be easy to think that everyone should think a certain way, And to some this message, you may be tempted to convey. But what about those who aren't able to even drive? What about those who have no independence on which they can thrive? It's a different story when you can't rely on yourself for simple things, For those people, each situation comes attached with strings. Some people in certain situations feel the need to plan ahead, As an unnecessary situation of reliance, they dread, Unfortunately, there are those who question the way they think, Then judge without trying to see why they connect that link. Honestly, it would be better if silence was their path, Those who can't do certain things shouldn't have to face the wrath, If you feel the urge to critique what they choose to do, Then I'm sorry but how can I have respect for you?

Dear Friend, I don't know what else I can say, I pinned myself in a corner-that may be true, And I have been punished for it to this day, I've wanted to make up for it, yet feel as if in your eyes- The only result will be that I capsize. Yet still, after all these years, I feel as if I've been blessed, For I'd never done anything worthy of reward yet you became my friend, But instead of treasuring you, I feel I must confess, That my actions as a catholic friend until the end, Weren't ones that any could ever defend. Even though I knew my calls would be ignored, Even though I was the last to learn you had gone away, I no longer cared if I was abhorred, Because I can't forget what I'd promised to you, No matter what happens I swore our friendship would remain true. Your departure had stung more than any other punishment before, Why? Because at the time it felt as if I watched you die, And honestly for so long after-I felt as if I could go on no more, Even when so many years had passed, whenever I thought of you, I could not stop those tears as crying was all I could do. But that said I won't believe that there is no hope, As I've learned in the darkest of times this is something you give yourself. And that is why I have been for so long able to cope, Yes, I may appear foolish to you until the end, But I will always believe in you because you are my friend. When that day does come about, And that promise can be renewed, Should you find that our bond you no longer doubt, I've kept this for me and you, This will demonstrate that in the end, we could pull through. It will be here whenever you change your mind, And you see it fit to forgive me, This object to us is one of a kind, It's my hope you'll accept what you see, As proof around your neck, you'll allow this to be. Until that day I will wait for you, Of that, you can be sure, I don't care if to others it is a retarded thing to do, Because I don't make promises I can't keep In the end, this seed I sowed I hope your return is what I can reap. *The object mentioned in this piece is something I had shared with this particular person a long time ago. It's my hope that one day, she can see this. I have the original copy which will contain this object should this person ever accept this.

When faced with a situation we don't understand, We beg and beg for a solution to be swiftly on hand, For if no answer is there to ease that given concern, We jump to the conclusion that we will be burned. There are those who seek a certain route, As a lack of answers has pushed them to doubt, They've consistently seen the same events take place, And everything they lacked they find they must once again face. For years I too have been that way, Ever since that dreadful day, Before certain individuals would take their leave, I'd felt there was a certain task I had to achieve. In one way or another, they earned the right, To see that which was hidden from most everyone's sight, Only a few individuals had earned such trust, Thus I'd seen such an action as a must. Yet I found this to be the first time someone looked with admiration, And that was a position the others had never taken, He then blessed that object without hesitation, That experience I have yet to take in. All I can think is that I've received a sign, One that was truly one of a kind, It proved that which our previous prior had made clear That even when plagued with so much fear- I did not stop when others had questioned my effort, Even though I would end up hurt, He had said my attempts to help would pay off someday, And with what had happened I'm starting to believe all he did say. *I wrote this based on a recent experience I had. In some parts though, I would not be surprised if others could relate.

Too often when a situation appears beyond repair, It becomes an irritant that some can't bear, They then deem those in charge unworthy to lead, For it seems that person doesn't possess what it takes to succeed. They feel had they taken charge things would resolve, And thus act as if with their competence every problem they'd solve, But one can not lead if one can not follow, For their perspective going in can only be seen as hollow. There are those who manage and those who light the way, Out of those two-there is but 1 who will not fray, For they have that which the other lacks, True power does not come to the one that attacks. There is a difference between a leader and a boss, A boss will demand despite the cost, On the other hand, there are those who by example lead, And you'll find that in the end, it's them who succeed. You can gain a lot just by considering each point of view, Thus avoid any misunderstandings through n through, At the end of the day, there is one fact we must understand, You mustn't be the boss, be the leader if you wish to command. *I hope this inspires others. I got the idea for this poem from a drama called life on the line. One character points out to another the difference between a boss and a leader. Both manage people. He also points out that misunderstandings can occur if you don't get all the facts, then ends the conversation by saying, whatever head position you are in, don't be the boss, be the leader.* I don't enough people remember this, thus I decided to share this with all of you.

What had happened the other night, Is something that filled me with fright, For the officer who died on the scene, Was not just another human being. He was a good man, who not only stood for justice's sake, He was one who stood by every decision he would make, He was the father of a classmate from long ago, There is something I feel those going through this must know. The one who committed such a crime should and will pay, So, please remember what I'm about to say, Those who died by the hands of this man, Though it's not much I hope you can take comfort and understand- He who is at fault and he who committed the crime, It is him and not you who should be having a hard time, So try not to suffer too much and try to forget what took place that night, As it is for your sake and your happiness for which you fight.

I often dream of one I once knew, With a relationship I hoped would stay true, Yet 3 years have passed since that awful day, When the one I once knew did fade away. With pain I knew would never cease, With every passing day this longing would increase, As I would foolishly try to make things right, Hoping at the end somewhere there'd be a light. But still even today I see the face, Of which there is no longer a trace, Now struck with sadness I've come to see That the relationship we had can no longer be.
