Parenthood On The Brink

“Oh the joys of parenthood. Where you realize you now have a full time job that requires you to be a referee.” #StuffRareSays

It’s the brink of dawn
She lets out a yawn
As with clockwork
They’re up and their off
Built in alarms
Loud pouncing feet

Pitter patters
Rush through the halls
Their calls for each other
Pass through the walls

Their energy risen
Without any hault
Not a whisper
Their voices
Fill the house.

They start up early
And keep it going
One eggs on
The others feel wronged

A fright breaks loose
and here comes mom.

But First…

We are embarking on day three of a sick Baby Blue. She’d lost her voice, has been feverish and a grumpis.
Nursing her back to health has left me super ultra-drained.
On top of losing sleep over nightmares about Honey Bear…
Oh wait….

Did I forget to mention that little factor involved in my insomnia fit…

I still had to work.

Today, I’m just going to focus on Baby Blue, myself, and relaxation. No poem, No story, No musing and no mom humor. Simply US.

But first!
Lemmi take a selfie.

Cheering up Baby Blue by having fun with filters.

I ask with great disdain,
“What are we teaching the youth of our nation today?”

Religion, race, creed, culture, political affiliation, etc.
They are simply categories.

To disrespect another because their category is not like yours…
Is of YOUR own wrong doing.

One of the greatest tragedies in life is…
To have a stubborn theology that there is only ONE way.

Life gives us no right or wrong directions.

We merely make distinctions through the process.

The good.
The bad.
True colors are in the individual’s intentions.
NOT their category.

As proven with a teen on the news.


The Call


“I determine character by what is inside your heart.” #StuffRareSays

Every day we walk this path.
With new endeavors
Choices to make.

How we go about them
See them come to fruit…
Is the very crux
Who YOU are.

Title itself
Make you reputable.
Actions themselves
Bear the fruit
Of a choice.

We are all of

Varieties galore.

The true beauty of the world
Diversity adored.

While we are the same
WE are NOT

Born with different traits
Fitting into the whole.

A picture so bright
Beautiful array.

The puzzle sewn strong.
Within the fray.


Unified pieces
Trough the strain.

A test within ourselves
To answer a call.

Come together
We all fall.
