Authority To Lead

Succumbing to fear we constantly hold ourselves back
Unsure and unwilling to bear the potential attacks
Of Authority on self-confidence that seems to lack
Understanding that everyone has something to add

Might we begin to curtail these damaging reflexes
To make conscious decisions in our best interests
Show some common courtesy, decency and respect
Supporting our communities without weighing regrets

Precious is the open mind that is capable to conceive
There’s beauty concealed in all unique, innate abilities
For truly, each of us has unlimited potential to lead
Democracy of chances to achieve collective dreams

Envision a supportive environment that feels safe
Celebrating our differences to exchange our fate

I’m a late bloomer in pursuing my desire to express my artistic side. I’ve been a dreamer all my life but  all I knew at that time, was that my lot in life was to be a wife, a mother and that’s it.

It takes guts to get out there and study it, learn it, be in it. I stepped out my box when I became an author, to share with the world…

“How The Years Have Gone By”

As kids sitting in the classroom,

The days seemed to last forever,

The school year couldn’t be longer,

Ready to make that run to the river

Turning sixteen seemed so far,

Independence and freedom,

A driver’s license and then a car

Growing and not having a choice,

Becoming an adult at eighteen,

Finally I’ll have my voice

Living on the brink,

It would surely be fun,

To go out and drink,

If only to be twenty one

How the years have gone by,

Now I’m the parent,

Of the apple of my eye
