My Imaginary Friend…

Imaginary Friend


My imaginary friend was Fred the Farmer… I know it sounds crazy, but Fred would only be available on long road trips… He would wear a plaid, long-sleeved shirt and a pair of jean overalls.  He would always be right beside our vehicle or lag behind a bit whenever we would drive on the highway. He always had a way of making me laugh whether it was jumping from road sign to road sign, or when he would trip when he ran. Fred would also talk to me and ask me why my grandparents were driving slow.  He was always a great “imaginary friend” who would help pass the time by… No, we don’t talk anymore. haha…



Open Mic called Life…


You stand there to sing,

You feel your beating heart.

You want to carry out the tune;

But you don’t know where to start.

You know that you’re the only;

The one who’s not afraid to stand.

Yet, you feel all of life is still;

Save the shaking of your hands.

You give one good glance;

You look out among the crowd.

All the many faces are out so far;

 Yet, Their voices so close, so loud.

You open your mouth gently,

Until words of pureness pour.

You started the melodious tune;

The crowd speaks no more.

Your heart begins to beat faster,

You start to feel that rush.

Nothing but your voice is sounding;

Whilst the multitude is hushed.

You’re almost done with singing,

A smile makes it’s way.

While the crowd gets to cheering

Begging you to stay!

You feel as though you’re floating.

Nothing better could describe;

When you walk from the platform,

Feeling excited and alive.

Every day is an open mic

You get the chance to stand, to speak.

Although, you may be nervous;

It’s the easiest way to lead.

Leave it in the Past


Leave it in the past,
Throw it all behind.
Focus on the forward,
Mold your scattered mind.

Try not to worry too much,
Keep it calm and cool.
Focus on the task at hand;
For once, don’t play the fool.

Give it all you got,
Call it quits when you choose.
Don’t come whining to me,
When you feel you always lose.

Try and be the bigger person,
Though you feel it tough.
Try and give forgiveness,
Even when it’s not enough.

You never know who you are,
Until you know where you stand.
Quit acting like a wave,
Tossed and turned o’er the sand.

Keep your guard, stand straight.
Remember to think fast.
Throw away your doubt and fear,
And leave it in the past.


Going with the Flow

Maybe it’s the rush,

Or possibly the glow;

I can not help but deny,

Going with the flow.

I was made to stand,

Or possibly to show.

I can not be like everyone,

Going with the flow.

I must take a leap out;

Step where I don’t know.

I can not make my choices,

Going with the flow.

Be who you’re supposed to be,

Go where you need to go.

You will never find your purpose,

Going with the flow.

Don’t turn back to the crowd.

Carry good seeds you must sew.

Remember, greatness isn’t achieved

Going with the flow.
