Back to Texas

Back to Texas

I want to go back to Texas,
That’s where I know I belong.
I’ve been north, east and west.
I think I’ve been away too long.
The feeling to come home back
To you has been growing strong,
But I’m a different person now
After the years I’ve been gone.
I know leaving you back then was
one of many things I’ve done wrong.
My feelings for you are like lyrics
To some old Mexican love song.
Reasons not to care for me are real,
You have your own life going on.
I want to go back to Texas,
That’s where I know I belong.
No matter where I have roamed,
You were in my heart all along.

Eye to Eye

Editor’s Note: I tried to write something for Valentine’s Day this year, and this is a start of something.

Eye to Eye

repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
I thought I was the only one you called your man,
working every day to carry out a plan, and
I try real hard to make you happy as I can,
but this is hard for me to really understand.
I want to do more than just hold your hand.

(repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
I heard from friends you were out with another guy,
and then you denied it with what some call a lie.
You know I will love you until the day I die,
but all I want to know is why, why, why?
I want us to keep our love stay eye to eye.

(repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
On this very special Valentine’s Day,
I have a special message I want to convey,
even though it’s cloudy and skies are gray.
I would like you know I want you to stay,
even though it’s hard to believe what you say.

On The Hollodeck

On The Hollodeck

A computer program can change an
empty room into a wild west saloon
on the hollodeck.

Distant memories that have yet to be
made can be shared and replayed
on the hollodeck.

Everything you sense you think is
real, even the emotions you feel,
on the hollodeck.

You can make your own world, a
Wizard of Oz, but be cool The Fonze,
on the hollodeck.

It’s hard to forget it’ a mechanical dream.
You can get hooked on it, it seems,
on the hollodeck.

You can lose your sense of reality,
rationality, and responsibility,
on the hollodeck.

Tough Enough?

Tough Enough?

Are you tough enough to survive today?
Are you too old to brave the freezing cold?
Do you take action on your own or are you told?
Are you too young to be told how it’s done?
Are you too bummed to know when to have fun?
Can you focus on issues or be fooled by “fake news”?
Is your choice of music trending toward the blues?
How far do you drive after you start the car?
Do you go into surgery and expect a big scar?
Do you get mad at rearranged shelves at the store?
Do you pay someone to do household chores?
Do you feel safe to enter a crowded elevator?
Do you worry about bed bugs in a theater?
Are you tough enough to survive today?

Snake in the Grass

Snake in the Grass

When things go wrong, we
feel sad, mad, and wonder
if thing would have been
better if we had…
looked over to the other
side of the fence.

They say the grass is
always greener on the
other side of the fence,
because of the water or
maybe the way the sun
illuminates the individual
blades of grass.
Beware of this illusion, for
there is a snake that
crawls, camouflaged, as it
moves up a tree to get a
better view of its next
potential victim near the
white points of the picket
fence.

The Edge

The Edge

A swift sword helps create an empire,
soiled by the blood of those who rise against it.
The razor-sharp edge keeps people in line,
but over time the metal which supports the edge
loses its strength, and can no longer be trusted.
The edge can get dull, and be easily rusted.
The unity is threatened when the blade can break,
but a new, and more dangerous weapon can
be forged from the mold of the master sword,
and the harmony is restored among the nations
who have no hate or strife among the people,
except for ruling power which controls them.
The sword of the new generation tries to
keep the dynasty alive, but it really cuts down
every chance of successful reign since the
new blades dull even faster than before.
Violence will erupt, and the revolution begins.

Reason to Dream

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Reason To Dream

Some say dreams are for those who sleep,
but when they wake up to the morning, the
thoughts created in the night are forgotten.

I say dreams are for those who have a need
to live for more than just another day, and
they have a reason to look forward to tomorrow.

Pocket your dreams

Pocket your dreams

Pocket your dreams.
Then they are within reach of your hands.
You can have a chance to get a hold of
your dreams when the opportunity knocks.

If you put your dreams on cluttered shelves
in the closet of your mind or the wandering
the hallways of your heart, the time to
use your dreams may be gone before you find them.

Like loose change, the dreams my fall out of
your pocket, but that is the chance you
take for being ready to live.
