Taken out of one cage,
Only to be shoved into another?
Freed from terrors of one age,
Only to be replaced by another?
First they said, little woman,
Stay at home, you cannot fly,
Stay and take care of our son,
More? Don’t even try.
Now we broke free those bars,
So they say go out and roam,
You must reach for the stars,
Smart women don’t stay at home.
I laugh at this absurdity,
Backwardness of today,
Free is what I will be,
Not what they will say.

Terrifying tremors emerged,
From deep within earth’s heart,
Leaving millions shaken,
Tore families apart.
Neighbors do you see my eyes?
For you they fill with tears,
Keep your strength and hold your faith
Keep at bay your fears.
We pray for you with all our strength,
We hope with all our might,
Daybreak will bring relief,
Lives will brighten in the light.
This little poem is for all the people affected by the earthquake and the aftershocks that have rocked Nepal and its neighboring countries. I pray for the affected people to have strength and hope to make it through this disaster.

The little stars shine so bright,
Never dying relentless light,
They give me courage and strength,
They pull me up when I am spent.
The pixies ride the magic breeze,
As they laugh and play and tease,
Can’t you hear their bells tinkling?
Can’t you see their eyes twinkling?
Magic binds each and every heart,
By this magic they are never apart.
Share their joys and share their tears,
Laugh and cry and face your fears.
Draw your strength from the flame,
As it burns, you do the same.
Don’t back down or bow out,
Speak your mind aloud right out.
See the heavens above you,
Then ask your heart, what is true.
All you need you’ll find within,
Peace or joy or just a win.
Tonight look deep and find your might,
Be brave and live your life tonight.
