Get off my Rainbowe!

Get off my Rainbowe!!
Don’t tell me how to live
Don’t tell me when to laugh

I tire of your disdain
And arrogance and
Pitied-look on my behalf

I might not walk
In step with the Inn
Crowded people
But I walk
Nevertheless

Maybe my skin is Black
Maybe Yellow, Red or Brown
Or maybe I’m born white
I dunno.
My mind is
ColourBlind!

Or perhaps I’m the One
Behind the Shroud
Caged-in by metal chair
Wheeling down the street

What – you did not see me there?!

That’s it, isn’t it!
I just do not fit in
But that’s Okay!
I do fit my Own

This is My Rainbowe
You go and find your own.
For tho my colours falter
And bleed more than they   blend
I’m making a beautiful Picture
Till my last breath is given

Yes, I’ll Share my Rainbowe
With you
If you promise to be nice
Open up and let the
Light Shine
And hate will dissipate

The Donors

They Come
From all around
Town

He’s a savvy
Businessman
She’s a Lawyer
He’s a Stay-at-Home Dad

She’s a Student
Just graduated
HighSchool
“Thank you very
Much!”
He has a Friend
In Hospital
Desperately
Waiting

She just Lost
Her daughter
In an Horrific
Auto accident

And still they
Come

They roll up
Their sleeves
They give of
Their Time
They give of
Their lives
They give
Because
They Can

They give
What’s inside
Them
Drip drip drip
450 milliliters
Of Life source
To help Another
Human Being
Live!

ReNew Able

It doesn’t matter
Yesterday is Gone
Today Is
Fresh
I’m Tired

Let’s Begin
Anew

Thank You
For a New
Twenty Four
Hours to
Bless
Someone

I’ll Begin again!

Jody AI’m originally from the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles—hence I’m a Valley Girl. I met my Hubby on the Internet and he transported me to the beautiful Fraser Valley nearly 15 years ago. I have two step-kids and we have six grandkids!

I am very blessed with a gift of writing which I’ve enjoyed since I was in elementary school. I enjoy blessing people with my poetry and am hoping to have a book published someday.

GOD is a Major part of my life and thus my poetry.

I hope you find connections here.
