Would you do it different?

To age is a blessing

To age alone is not

You were kind to others and they forgot

You wonder what the F was missing but then you remember. . .

Once upon a time you were a famous movie star

Now that you are older no one knows who you are

You had so many fans but not one close friend

Now you are alone when it is almost the end

You ignored your family and your

close friends

You only wanted the limelight and the company of fake friends

You walked the red carpet and never took your mother or father

Instead you took some glamorous other

You attended luxurious events but never with those that helped you to rise

Today you are in hospice waiting for your demise

I guess the lesson here is to appreciate how you came to be

Never forgetting family, friends and sincerity

Fame, fortune and being in the limelight

Is worth nothing if you must walk sad and alone into the night.

With all my love Guady G

Who will remember you?

It’s poetry month which means try to be a poet.

Does it mean Poe try! I’m good but not like Edgar Allen Poe. Has anyone ever read his life history? He lost his parents, his wife and his jobs. He barely made it writing and then died.

I wonder who will remember us from our writing. The great thing is we are sharing our gifts with the world. We will never be forgotten for we made an etch in this world with our words.

I share with you one of my first poems written in 2nd grade. The year was 1976.

I like my car for it takes me very far. I hop in it and go after pumping gas from either Getty or Texaco.

Yup that was a long time ago. I am grateful to my teacher Miss Pepe for giving me the assignment of writing a poem. What was your first poem? How old were you? Thank you again for reading my blog.

Shattered but not Discarded!

As a child I was carefree.
As a teen I was wild but still me.

In my twenties I lost my way.
It’s the truth. I have no words to say!

Then my thirties came and went.
What a waste of breathing.! A life badly spent!

I was broken and quite shattered.
I didn’t give a shit cause nothing mattered.

Who would love a shadow of who I once was?
Who would be okay with my ugly past?

Then came you into my life.
You said you saw me as your wife.

You saw past my bruises and my old needle marks.
You just loved me with all of your heart.

With you I didn’t feel shattered anymore!
Your love caressed me at my core.

You didn’t pimp me like others before.
You saw in me what I no longer saw.

I was beautiful and I was whole!
No longer broken despite the falls.

Your love came and set me free.
Thank you, thank you for loving me.

Story inspired by a patient’s story. Have a grand day.
