Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Around every corner
Around each turn
They sit
They wait

They protect you
From you
They keep you safe
Safe from ridicule
Safe from guilt
Safe from losing friends
Safe from dangerous ideas
They really are
Just trying to help
They served you
Kept you in line at school
At home
With your friends
Helped you fit in

Say thank you
Thanks for the help
Now It’s time
Time to hear new voices
Voices that speak hope
Voices that speak friendship
Voices that speak risks
Voices that speak real life

You are capable
You are smart
You are creative
You are fun
You are wanted
You are needed
You are kind hearted
You are a gift
