Just a Little Bit of Compassion



Just a little bit of compassion
Can make anyone  feel whole.

Just a little bit of compassion
can help heal a hurting soul.

Just a little bit of compassion
Can give someone their start.

Just a little bit of compassion
Can bring joy to the saddest heart.

Just a little bit of compassion
Is what sets all of us apart.

Just a little bit of compassion
Can make anyone feel whole.

Medical Cannabis

Medical Cannabis

You have helped keep me sane.
You have helped manage my pain.
You have helped me to finally regain.
You have helped take me in from the rain.
You are the kindest medicine anyone can attain.
You are the first medicine that is healing my brain.
You are helping me feel again and become much less lame.
You have helped me to feel less embarrassment and shame.
You have helped me believe my brain can continue to retrain.
You are my brightest rainbow following decades of unimaginable strain.

The Road


The road got rough,
We had to get tough.
The road got lonely,
Learning to be our own best friend was the fee.
The road got surreal,
All things survivors really and truly feel
The road had many twists and turns,
We realized this was the speeded up way to learn.
The road had way more peaks than valley's.
This was the hope we held onto when issues were drowning us.
The road held unexpected persons, people and many new things.
The road ended up being more beautiful than we could have dreamed.

The road got rough,
We had to get tough.
The road got lonely,
Learning to be our own best friend was the fee.

Wizards in Heaven

Wizards in Heaven

We've all had wizards,
They helped us to better see.
They helped turn us around,
when we were walking backwards.
We've all had wizards,
They helped us keep our balance,
When life got all crazy and absurd.
We've all had wizards,
They were all especially entrusted,
With our innermost truthful words.
We've all had wizards,
They encouraged us to go forward,
When our spirit was hurt and battered.
They can even whisper down to us from heaven.
We've all had wizards,
They are the few we really trusted,
They are the ones that really felt and heard our words.
We've all had wizards,
They were the ones we gravitated to,
when we were heart broken or in need of clearer sight.
We've all had wizards,
They were the ones we felt had answers that were right.
They were the ones that gave us the strength to fight.
They were wise and their opinion truly mattered.
Thankfully we have all had special earthly and heavenly wizards.

Follow Your Dreams

Follow Your Dreams
Follow your dreams, one baby step at a time.
No matter how hard, just continue to climb.
Follow your dreams, one baby step at a time.
When you stumble, don't lose sight of your goal.
We must press forward no matter how costly the toll.
For only on top can we see the whole view of our climb.
At the top we’ll see what we've achieved in our lifetime.
We will then see our improvements from the best of view.
We needed to accomplish something only done by a few.
When you stumble, don't lose sight of your goal.
This brain injury journey involves all of our heart and soul.
Follow your dreams, one baby step at a time.
There is no hurry we all have a lifetime to continue our climb.

Yesterday VS Today

Yesterday VS Today

Yesterday:

I was so busy living a full and demanding life, that
I rarely had enough free time to be readily available
to someone in need. It is not that I did not care, I
was just caught up in the rat race of life and did not
fully comprehend the needs of others, or what I could
possibly do that would have made a difference. Yet,
there were always people in need. I may not have known
them personally, and they may not have impacted my life
directly, but they were there. They were always there.
It seems now that I should have been able to feel their
precense, feel their unhappiness, feel their need for
love, compassion and understanding.

Today:

I understand the importance of need, but I did not
learn about need until I experienced need myself.
I did not understand the importance of empathy and
validation until I needed them myself.
I did not understand the importance of unconditional
love until I needed it myself.
I did not realize the importance of loyal friendship,
until I needed it myself.
I did not understand the importance of love and support
from family and friends, until I needed it myself.
I did not understand the need for support from my
fellow man, until I needed it myself.
I did not understand the needs and rights of the
disabled until I became disabled myself.
Yes, there are many many more differences in yesterday
and today, but these are the most important ones that
I see in myself. Although yesterday may have been easier,
I certainly cannot say that it was more worthwhile.

Close Call

Close Call

We don't run out of time,
until we reach the pearly gates.
Many of us came very close,
we were selected to do something great.
Some of us even begged to stay,
greatness comes in all sizes and shapes.
We have to find our new area of expertise,
we were guided in a divine kind of way.
Although many of us came very close,
we were all apparently meant to stay!
Please search for your intended destiny,
you are each a blessing in your own special way!
