If I Had My Child To Raise Over Again

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, 
and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting 
and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes 
and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields 
and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.

dear husband - a reply to the divorce letter

Dear Ex-Husband,

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. 
It’s true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man 
is a far cry from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because 
they drown out your constant whining & griping. Too bad that doesn’t work. 

I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, 
but the 1st thing that came to mind was 
‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say 
anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. 
And when you cooked my favorite meal, 
you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because 
I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: 
I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, 
& I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 
from me that morning. 

After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. 
So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica,  but when I got home you were gone.. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. 
I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care. 

Signed, Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free! 

P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. 
I hope that’s not a problem...

*again, this went viral on FB and again, as to the original source- 
I have no idea :)

dear wife - a divorce letter

Dear Wife, 

I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. 
I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. 
These last 2 weeks have been hell. ... Your boss called to tell me that you 
quit your job today & that was the last straw. 

Last week, you came home & didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, 
had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. 
You ate in 2 minutes, & 
went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. 

You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex 
or anything that connects us as husband & wife. Either you’re cheating on me 
or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone. 

Your EX-Husband 

P.S. Don’t try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together! 
Have a great life!

i am tired! give me rest!

as it was, this heart should be broken
as it goes, it has played all the mendin'
as it is, broken pieces no offendin'
as the heart, all its pride a-stolen

"should" shall i use, of no use
"should" shall i say, i to choose

the heart he had chose have been cruel
the heart she had chose is no-duel
the hearts they had hurt is a fuel
to the fire in both hearts...

whose heart was it again?
whose heart is the villain?

this heart should have had its rest
this heart have had all hell's best
whatabout, i say, the unfinished test?
i am tired, i am tired, give me rest!

my daily dose - enough for two weeks eh? --- [thanks Richard Bach]...

Bad things are not the worst things 
that can happen to us. 
Nothing is the worst thing that can happen to us! 

Can miles truly separate you from friends... 
If you want to be with someone you love, 
aren't you already there? 

Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. 
All they show is limitation. 
Look with your understanding, 
find out what you already know, 
and you'll see the way to fly. 

Every person, all the events of your life 
are there because you have drawn them there. 
What you choose to do with them is up to you. 

Here is a test to find 
whether your mission on Earth is finished: 
If you're alive, it isn't. 

I gave my life 
to become the person I am right now. 
Was it worth it? 

If your happiness depends 
on what somebody else does, 
I guess you do have a problem. 

Rarely do members of the same family 
grow up under the same roof. 

The best way to pay for a lovely moment 
is to enjoy it. 

The mark of your ignorance is 
the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. 
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, 
the Master calls the butterfly. 

The simplest questions are the most profound. 
Where were you born? 
Where is your home? 
Where are you going? 
What are you doing? 
Think about these once in a while and 
watch your answers change. 

There are no mistakes. 
The events we bring upon ourselves, 
no matter how unpleasant, 
are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they're necessary 
to reach the places we've chosen to go. 

You are always free to change your mind 
and choose a different future, or a different past. 

You don't want a million answers 
as much as you want a few forever questions. 
The questions are diamonds you hold in the light. 
Study a lifetime and you see different colors 
from the same jewel. 

You teach best 
what you most need to learn.

august longing...

i waited for you dear, where are you now?
i long for your touch, kiss, smile
are they still there...meant just for me?

was i wrong to long for you too much?
was i wrong to control myself when
it is what you wanted me to do
was i wrong to hide, to not to see you?

i wanted to and it is slowly killing me 
and you feared for me to realize...
your love..our love is the killing kind

i prayed for rain to wash my tears away
i prayed for rain to wash my fears away
i prayed for rain to wash me
the whole of me...away

yet the rain have decided not to fall
rain a-hiding me from, miser
too tired to wash other system's pain

i waited for you dear, where are you now?
i'm still longing...for your mere presence
are you still there? be still
let the tears and fears drown me...

let your love...our love kill me.
