Hope, you sit outside looking at me

Peering as if shyly through lashes

Not wanting me to know that you see

Looking back out the window at thee

Hope, there you are again so pretty

Shining, twirling and spinning around

Never do you show any pity

Crashing, spiraling down to the ground


Hope, why must you always come right back

Staring at me, I know you are there

I feel you, my heart wants to attack

Waiting for that fissure again here


Hope, I want to hate you, send you away

You snicker and come closer to me

The window to my soul has your sway

Ripping me to shreds again today?


Hope, so relentless and sweet, shall it be all mine?

With a mixture of bated breath and fear I wait

Each time I hear that one indeed it is divine

My heart sits suspended, while you decide its fate


Hope, how long do you think this time I have to wait?

We’re a ball of nerves watching this 95-year-old Air Force veteran inch his way to the edge of the diving board.

His wife of 72 years is also a veteran:

Imperative Imperfection

Reality Check

Can you hear my cries? Can you hear my screams?
For me no highs, ruination of my dreams
You can’t hear me because you don’t want to 
This, you show me, in everything you do

Locked in your own little box
The one with self-imposed locks
You and all your picture perfect friends
Being the same in your own little trends

Never to look outside your life
The pain, the heartache and the strife
Your actions cause to many others
While their hopes and dreams you do smother

Hurting them with vicious words
Things like fatso, geek, dork, or nerd
You seem to forget they’re people too
Oh yeah-that’s right-they’re victims to you!

I ponder this while at home
Or sitting there all alone
Does it give you pleasure causing pain?
Or is it just a sadistic game?

Sometimes you pretend I’m not there,
Or you wish I wasn’t anywhere?
I think you don’t realize what you do
Perhaps you’re ignorant, without a clue?

Maybe it’s me or maybe it's not
The answer is not easily sought.
I wish you would open your eyes
And look at all the destroyed lives

Those you said were not wanted
YEAH! The ones that you taunted.
Just because they weren’t the same?
So that must mean to you they’re lame?

Please think about this one thing
Some wisdom to you this’ll bring
Unwanted people will never be gone
Remaining here from dusk ‘til dawn

Their feelings as fragile as yours, be warned
Are simply broken and easily torn
Guess you’ll never know how they feel
Unless...your joy, someone does steal

Keep this one thing in back of your mind
Even though right now you may be blind
What you say and do to others now
Will come back to you ten-fold and HOW!

Yasi & S.D.B.
