    Where Do I Belong

    Where do I belong in this world so grand?

    I feel like I am drowning in a sea of quick sand,

    I do not think like you do so that makes me wrong,

    Is it a must to agree and just follow along?

    Can I not be myself and my mind freely speak?

    Why does my opinion to you always seem weak?

    Is it me who is struggling outside looking in?

    Or are you the intruder waiting for me to begin?

    The road has become rocky and my boots I have left behind,

    I feel the need to express what is constantly on my mind,

    I feel an abyss growing between our two hearts,

    Because of the forbidden undesired parts,

    You want me, but only as you see fit,

    Until I can comply, on the sidelines I should sit.

    Well I am telling you I am tired, I do not wish to change,

    I want to be me, to be another feels impossibly strange.

    Do I belong here or maybe I should go?

    Do you want me as I am, if not please just let me know?

    I am who you see, and nothing else will I be,

    This is all that you get, this that you see.

    So you decide now, and here I will wait,

    Be forewarned though, decide before it is too late.

    Release Me

    Good morning my friends. Today I woke up with the urge to let the words flow as they would. Following is what was waking me up this morning, trying to escape my brain. I hope you enjoy this bit of poetry. Have a wonderful day and a marvelous weekend all. Remember to inspire to be inspired.

    If I were to die tomorrow, would anybody care?

    If they were to have a funeral, would anyone be there?

    If I pleaded for mercy, would you hear my feeble cries?

    Would you comfort me and hold me, or simply tell me lies?

    Would you show me the sunset and treasures that shine within?

    Or would you only show me sorrow, and demonstrate my sin?

    My sin alone is loving you, and letting you take hold,

    Of a heart that is fragile, that for other pleasures you have sold.

    I tread the waters slowly, hoping the crest will never break.

    I implore you to see me, and that pity on me you will take.

    That you will free me from this binding and mercy on me show.

    That my fate you will release and my spirit shall be let go.

    I am sending inspirational thoughts to everyone today and hoping that you will have the best weekend possible. Grab a hold of your dreams and make them reality my friends.

    Thank You: You Are A Hero

    Good afternoon all. Today I would like to take the time to thank all those who serve in the military. No matter where you are from or what military you serve in, THANK YOU.

    I was sitting with my son, scrolling through Facebook when I saw a video of returning soldiers. Needless to say, I was in tears and my 3-year-old was asking me what was wrong. I did not know how to explain it to him. So, I sat and thought about it. I tried to come up with a way to explain to my child why I was crying. Well as it normally does, this line of thought brought me to other thoughts. Like how would you tell a child that their mommy or daddy will not be home for a few weeks, months, or even years? Now here I am. After my tear-filled realization brought on by a Facebook post.

    I felt the need to say thank you to all of the men and women who leave their homes and serve to protect others from the monstrosities that are in the world. Thank you to the men and women who stay at home and keep children, pets and family members safe while their loved ones serve a higher purpose. Thank you to the children who wait patiently for mom or dad to come home from service to share a little time with them. To all of you, thank you. You are all heroes.

    Now, I have thought of soldiers and their sacrifice on many occasions. I think of the time they spend away from their families so that I may tuck my children into bed at night. I have also thought of the men and women who are here at home and keep things going until their soldier comes home. What I had not really thought about was the children who wait for their soldiers to come home. Wait, let me clarify that. I have thought about them, I have just never sat down and thought of the emotional and mental strain this must put on those waiting at home. I have considered the soldiers and all of their stresses and longings to be home and their spouses stress waiting for them. I just had never really visualized what these children go through. Having parents absent for important events in life is hard enough. Having them absent because they are defending the world is entirely different.

    I sat and imagined what it would be like to talk to my children weekly through a computer or phone screen. I thought about the feelings my children would have if their daddy wasn’t home every night for dinner. I thought about how my children would feel if I was not here to tuck them in at night. This made my heart hurt so much. I realized how big of heroes these children are as well as their soldier loved ones. For that reason, I say thank you to them the most. Thank you for giving up all of the things we take for granted so that our families can be protected. You are the biggest heroes of them all.

    I hope that you all can take a minute out of your busy day to say thank you to someone who is waiting for their soldier to come home.

    On behalf of my family, I say thank you to the soldiers serving in the military and sacrificing, I say thank you to the family members left at home, and I say a humongous thank you to the children who are waiting on their soldiers to return to tuck them in at night. You are all appreciated and we send you hugs and inspiration.

    As always, my friends inspire to be inspired and do not just follow your dreams, grab them by the horns and give them wings.
