Thanks to La Duchesse D’erat for the list writing prompt. The Duchess wrote that we should list:

” . . .things we feel like doing in 2016, things that really inspire us, make us smile, giggle. It’s not a resolutions list. No need to feel compelled to realize what you write down, but the simple fact of writing the list may blow some wind under your wings and help you accomplish something new . . .”

Poem: To a Woman Who Fell Off The Edge




I always wonder why?

You left your family that day?

Why you chose the rope.

And not another day on earth.


I wonder if I could’ve stopped you,

And told you the right words.

I let the moment pass by.


A few weeks later, you died.

Did you know you were my hero.

The person’s whose life,

I wanted to emulate.


Years have passed; I wonder if,

Words would’ve mattered.

My Mom would not give the woman money, because it was too difficult to tell at times, if a person needed the money for drugs or alcohol. But the woman must have needed food and diapers for her family badly, because she sat next to my Mom in the front of the van.

Mom drove the woman to Superstore to buy her groceries, diapers, and a few toiletries she needed. I remember walking up and down the aisles in Superstore with my Mom and this woman. The woman…
