I am Great

Posted on February 16th, 2012 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Poems

I was standing in a waiting room of a doctor’s office with my parents and my three little boys.  My mom was seeing the doctor.  My dad and I were entertaining the kids.  It had been about an hour when my mom finally came out.  As we stood at the counter waiting to make another appointment, I saw this posted to the wall in the receptionist’s workspace.  It was an 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper that read, “I Am Great” and I read it out loud to my kids and my father.  When the clerk came to her desk I said, “I love that. I really needed to read that today!”  She said she wrote it when her kids were small.  Then she did a remarkable thing.  She took it off the wall and gave it to me.  Thank you Ms. Elizabeth!  Where ever you are!

What My Heart Needs

Posted on February 16th, 2012 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz

It’s been a long time since

I wrote about me,

since I’ve written of the

things that set me free.

It’s been a long time since

the voices stopped haunting

and I’ve thought of the

things that motivate me –

the sun and the breeze

and the big blue sea.

So long voices.

So long!

It is time for me to

wake up

shake up

and rake up

the mess I’ve let myself

accumulate

the mess my mind makes

the thoughts

the worries

the needs

the wants . . .

My heart needs a vacation

to clear the cob webs

and start fresh.

It’s been a long time since

I thought about me,

since I’ve thought of the

things that make me me.

It’s been a long time since

the voices stopped taunting

and I’ve thought of the

things that captivate me –

the sun and the breeze

and the big blue sea.

So long voices.

So long!

It is time for me to

make up

take up

and bake up

something creative and

beautiful

something to replace

the mess that I have made

the mess in my mind

the fears

the pain

the tears

the wants . . .

My heart needs a trip

to relax and open up

and live again.

It’s been a long time since

I fought about me,

since I’ve defended myself

for what I want to be.

It’s been a long time since

the voices stopped begging

and I’ve thought of the

things that liberate me –

the sun and the breeze

and the big blue sea.

So long voices.

So long!

It is time for me to

stand up

hold my hand up

and band up

to fight for the

freedom

that sets me apart.

Dry up the tears

the used up years

the messed up fears

the desires of the soul.

My heart needs the space

to pick up the pace

to move and grow

to live

and love.
