I Am A Mother

I am a mother, and one among the Mothers I feel the stinging of tears When I watch another grainy film Another life snuffed out, so young in years   Shot in the back Tased in the face I watch in horror, its disgrace   Without due process murder now acceptable Because of skin color, … Read more

Yellow Canteen

On the first day of Biology class, I noticed the girl with the yellow canteen. She sat on the far left of the arena and my attention belonged all to her. Between notes I would glance, sneakily, in the chance that she would see me too—she would and we’d both stare into space as if … Read more

It is creating a line that marks the limits of an area, a dividing line. Many areas in life need boundaries. However, setting them can be a complicated process.  Depending on your personality, setting boundaries may make you feel fabulous and empowered, or it may make you feel like you are hurting the people around … Read more

Know When To Keep Your Mouth Shut

My grandma always said, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!” Easier said than done granny, why is that? Emotions are a funny thing, and some people can’t control them.

If I Were Caught

Procrastination gets the best of me, especially when there is always something else to do. My deadline is a week away but at the moment all I care about is grabbing a cold beer and watching the game. I was at my neighborhood bar, walking distance, just a few blocks, no reason to drive—I knew … Read more

Choose Your Words Wisely

Once those syllables come out of your mouth, they can’t be retracted.  Oh sure you can apologize, but what you said can never be unheard.
