Poem: My Precious

Image result for i lost an earring

My Precious
Made a vow to find you if ever lost, no matter how steep the cost.
Watched your value grow, sharing years of wins and woes.
Object of my affection, went in your own direction.
My very beloved rock, your loss gave me quite the shock.
Despite my earnest effort, shame we exist separate.
You are most precious, rare gift I solemnly treasure.
Also, girl's best friend, for happiness you lend.
In this material world, held high are diamonds and pearls.
Displayed for the world to see, found your greatest admirer in me.
Drew the best out of me, counterpart, pity to witness you depart.
My pining is steadily persisting, melancholy, since you went missing.
There's a void where you should be - right here, in my company.
One thing I can’t debate, this pain is hard to equate,
To another in history—my state is deep misery.
And also cannot deny, this tragedy makes me cry.
I thought we'd always be together since physically, we were tethered.
Your absence has taken its toll, now I’m just a wandering soul.
I ponder if you're still safe and do my best to keep the faith.
You and I came as a set, obvious to those we met.
We truly are an epic pair, distance from you is anguish to bear.
Having you at my side filled me with joy and pride.
Jointly we made an impression, always able to command attention.
Indivisible is our truth, there's no better virtue.
Without you there’s no me, in tandem create poetry.
Our reputation precedes—we’re a most envied team.
You and I are synonymous, absence of either is onerous.
We’re perceived as one, bonded for the long run.
United make a perfect brand, like no other duo in the land.

A poem written by my friend.  She goes by the name RobeGirl.  I asked why? "because when I started a big chunk of my poems I was between jobs and wearing my robes. lol"
When I first read this, I thought it was a boyfriend heartbreak.  "No," she said, "lost earring.  Think, Lord of the Rings."

The Door Of Life - part one

Turning to look at her mom, three year-old Jessica said, “Mommy, why do you have a door on your forehead?” 

It was after lunch and Jessica sat on her mom's lap holding her picture book, Creatures of the Forest.

“Oh honey, nothing awful. It's so I can get my bad thoughts out of my head," replied her mom.

Jessica turned to her book and touched the face of a bear. “Mommy, how come daddy doesn't have a door on his forehead too?”

“Your father has a door by his heart to let love in.”

Jessica rubbed her hand along the page, petting the bear. "How come I don't have a door?"

"You will, sweetie. When you grow up, you get a door where you need it the most."

Turning to reach for her mom. "Can I touch your door?"

Her mom leaned her head back, "No Honey, only I can do that. It's not nice to touch other people's doors."

"Oh, okay." Jessica turned back to her book and turned the page to a picture of four robins perched on a tree…

Social Politics

I read in Google News that many states and cities in the USA are considering banning sugary drinks like soda. They claim that sugar is causing health problems and the government wants to save you from yourself. There are some other things that governments are doing, like requiring salt and fat warnings on restaurant menus. 

To some people, this is the nanny state. Others call it overreaching and others yet, creeping socialism.

Well, for the record, I think we already have a partial socialist state. It cannot be helped. Whenever the government steps in to help the citizens, you have socialism. 

Let's consider one of the biggest government programs there is in the United States, Medicare.

Medicare is a program of healthcare insurance. In short, the government collects money (taxes) and uses it to pay doctor and hospital bills for retired people. Whether the government does a good job or not is not the issue here.

Then, we ask the government to go one more step, to spend the money (taxe…

The Government Shutdown

Here are my top five takeaways from the United States of America Government Shutdown, in no order of importance. Well maybe they are in order of importance, as this reflects the order that the thoughts came to me. I am assuming the important thoughts came first but I still claim no order at all to this list.
First, the government shutdown has proven to be an ineffective way for the president to negotiate for his wall. Second, I suppose we should thank the president for shutting down the government. We have all learned just how much of a role the government plays in our lives by its absence. We have no passports issued just to name one item that went on hold. Third, we learned just how much to value the government workers. They went to work to protect (FBI) and serve (Post Office) us all, citizens and visitors alike, all the while knowing they would not be paid. Fourth, we learned that too many of us live from paycheck to paycheck and will very quickly get into money troubles …
