Deep down in my heart
I heard some voices
Shouting about the futility
Of my life choices

You are stupid, you are wrong
Your name is known to none
You are boring, uninteresting
Never were you any fun

Look around you to the
best of your days
What are you doing?
Trying to bury your face

Is this your purpose?
Where are you going?
Are you even listening?
Or at least trying?

You’ll have a great life
All of them said
What have you got?
You have got bled

Why would you see?
When did you see?
And even if you saw?
Would you try to be?

I tried drowning it
By raising the sound of music
I couldn’t bear them
I tried being too thick

In the promise of sanity
And all that I could gain
I’ve lost my mind
And completely became insane

Untitled, A poem from Art by Theresa Williams


An upturned cup holds a poem

which flew from a soul and now

thru your window


gusts of wind



the strong warrior falters




there are many words to persuade this

looking, down, around, used

none matter

a 3 bounces in time.

Vanishes, it will never come again.

Or will

A river gushes


I wrote this poem after the wind blew my coffee cup perfectly upside down, and the liquid stayed in.  Well, most of it did and I thought about passion, the four elements of water, air, fire, earth, and love that resists.

You’re Alive

Some days you’ll feel like giving up,
Or wish you could hide away and never return,
On days when the shadows are overwhelming you,
When ominous clouds block any glimpse of sunlight,
On days when nothing feels right,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

On days when you are sinking,
You don’t know if you have the strength to go on,
Someday life will be unreasonably hard…
Harder than you ever imagined or expected,
Pushing you to the point of exhaustion,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

When every portion of your life is daunting,
When you feel like a misfit in your surroundings,
Can’t put your finger on the why…
Feeling empty…exhausted…done…!!
Hang on…! Hang on to one tiny little flicker of hope, and,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

You feel you are too broken to be fixed,
That your mind is a mess,
An irreparable damage is done,
Like a flowing river
Nothing ever stays the same in this world, so,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

Let the pain sink in,
Acknowledge it,
Sadness is not a sign of weakness,
Carefully consider the thoughts you choose to believe in,
And, you begin to heal again, hence,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

Don’t give in…. not yet,
Hold on, for as long as you need, 
Just don’t let go,
You can never ever be permanently broken,
Let your soul heal itself, so,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

Nothing Comes To A Sleeper But A Dream


(Follow my page here:

Life is known for throwing unexpected curve balls our way. We sometimes tend to let those curve balls (disappointment, loss of life, sickness, failure, etc)  dictate the way we live, feel, think and carry ourselves through life. I, for one, can admit that I’ve been guilty of this. I like to call it the victim mindset. The “why did this happen to me” mindset. But one thing we have to remember as humans is that we are capable of great things when we put our mind to it. Regardless of the obstacles we face, we can accomplish great things in this world as long as we have the vision to do so. I wrote the following piece to remind myself and others of the power of the human mind and potential, and how we have the ability to push ourselves to greatness, even when times get hard:

Ocean like calmness exudes when you release inner conflict.

And replace complacent based logic with a replenished conscious…

Filled with thoughts of promise and ideals of never stopping.

Set goals…Conquer

Then move on to the next conquest.

Limits should never be mentioned when seeking progress.

Deterrents can cause rifts, but important to remain confident.

Always have a vision… What you see is what you can get.

Never claim to lack the depth to aspire for great accomplishments…

Potentials can produce wonders when we learn to harness them.

Never hesitate to move by the beat of your own drum.

Seize more than the moment…

Embrace greatness and strive to shatter the laws of complacency.

A wise man once told me… “Nothing Comes to a Sleeper But a Dream.”

A guest poetry- “will” by Tarebear the Writer from BOSTON


when you broke
my heart
I thought you
walked away with
the air I breathe
and left my lungs
and motionless.
I thought you
drained my blood
and left my shattered
heart unable to
contract and release
ever again.
I was wrong,
I will breathe on
I will will my heart
to beat on.
I will live on.
I will not let you kill me.
I am in charge of me
I can save me.
When you broke my heart
I thought you took my life
with you when
you left.
But no.
I can fight on
