Daddy, I love you.

Why can’t you love me?

Everything I do is just for you,

But it is never good enough.

Daddy, do you ever wonder why

I can never seem to hold onto a guy?

I can tell you true that I let them go,

because I fear they will be just like you.

Daddy, do you know that who I am

is what you helped to create?

I am an insecure little girl

looking for love in all the wrong places.

Daddy, I hope you understand

that if you showed me a little more love

instead of the hate…that maybe,

just maybe I can believe in a man.

Daddy, please understand

I love you more than you’ll ever know.

It hurts me so much

that you can’t stand to look at my face.

I love you,

why can’t you love me too?

You sold me out to reach your goals
Money, prestige, a comfortable berth
I was left with a head full of holes
And no sense at all of self-worth
When I was struck, you shifted blame
“You must have done something wrong”
Too bad he didn’t treat you the same
We’d know if you were truly strong
You left my brother in his “tender” care
And wonder why he will not call
You justify everything however you dare
I wish I could watch you crawl.

Nervous cold and hungry

Wanting to continue but knowing I can’t

Wishing it was over,

But glad it has only begun.

For some reason all I wanted to do is drive, drive, and drive.

But I am glad I am not.

Whats wrong with me?

God, I’m so confused.



~Our Child Within ~

A whisper slides around my mind
Wrapping it in unwanted recall
I beg it to leave, instead I find
I’m held in a strong, quiet thrall

“See me, admit me” says the child within
As I try to turn away
“You’ll never know peace ’til you let me win
‘Til I guide you to a new way”

A demand rises up, the voice becomes loud
“Forgive me” she screams in my ear
“Learn to cherish, learn to be proud
Of my strength in the face of our fear”

“Without my fight, where would you be?
Without my pain, what would you know?
The past is gone, you no longer must flee
Embrace me and find wonders to show
~By Merrymax’s Child-within!


This woman has been kind, gentle, and has much love,
All of this has been given with the blessing of the Great Spirit above,
But Great Spirit gave her something else and she didn’t know it,
The Great Spirit gave her the blessing of being a Warrior woman as now her light is lit!

This warrior woman has come fully alive today,
She is no longer anyone’s slave or prey,
She is taking back her life today,
And those who know who she truly is, can stay.

No longer will she live the lives of others,
She will give back the blames and responsibilities of others where it belongs,
For she also has the bear and wolf inside her,
Which is now so very powerful and uniquely strong.

The Warrior woman now knows what road she must follow,
For others it will be to hard to swallow,
Her life was taken from her unknowingly many years ago,
And this warriorwoman is taking back her life before the next wind blows.

Oh Sister Moon you give me the strength,
As a warrior woman to conquer what’s on my path,
High above and way beneath,
And the much needed strength to take on the wrath.

This warrior woman is fully awake and is taking a stand,
Taking the problems by the horns with her hands,
I will conquer all that is there,
All and who comes as they dare.

Warrior woman has fully awaken,
And many will see that they have mistaken,
Of robbing her of her life, they as a thief,
Warrior woman will conquer! And have no grief!

This warrior woman will protect her people, her son, and those who need her,
If anyone hurts them, look out!
They will hear a GGGGGGRRRRRRRRR,
As they run and shout!

This warrior woman is taking back her life,
Taking back the respect that was taken from her throughout the years ever so slow,
This warrior woman is removing pain and hurt from within the heart caused by the knife,
From all those who are both family and foe.

I am claiming what’s mine, and my dignity,
From those who live in this society of vanity,
I am claiming back in full my heritage,
And as a warrior woman I am going to clean up many years of carnage.

For now standing in front of you,
You see this warrior woman, you see me,
Someone special has taught me to be free,
From this day forward for me no more slavery,
Gentleness, kindness, and love is part of me, and so is my dignity,
This is NOT WEAKNESS, as others believe,
But this strength is within me and you.

I will listen to the spirits and grow,
I will travel in the whispering winds as they blow,
All the work I now do will be for Our People and all nations,
I will protect and guide the future generations.

Now it is time for me to travel on my new path,
As a warrior woman conquering all wrath,
If you ever see and want to meet me,
Please come, and I will also teach and share with you how to be free.

If anyone has any idea who the Author is

of the Beautiful poem, please let me know

so I can give the proper credit.

He Stepped on Me

He stepped on me
It wasn’t his intention
But it sent me to a place
To scary to even mention
My guard was up
How did he get beyond it?
The constant babble of
The other passenger, the
Bumpy road, the pain caused
By the boot?

My foot received the blow
My heart felt the pain
I’ve heard it said – 2 places
At once – Impossible!
Not true! I’m there

My heart received the blow
By a foot other than his


Glassy Skin

Broken picture, broken glass on the floor then
in my hand
Smooth , sharp piercing yet painless to
on my skin
Can’t see the picture left in the frame
Only see the one playing in my brain
Detached feelings, shattered thoughts in my head then
around my feet
Blemished, shameful dark pain beyond imagination
in my mind
The glass shattered my sense of reality
Buried beneath the nothingness
