the path to mending


This poem and some others I will post in the coming days are things I wrote over ten years ago.  They are a small part of an unpublished anthology entitled “When I find Me, Will I Like Me?”

I hope you like them.


I need an inspiration and a lot less frustration.

I feel I’m all tied in knots,

like an animal who’s been caught.

My muscles are all tense.

I need something to look forward to,

not something to run away from.

I want to do for me what I’ve always done

for others.

I’ve neglected my needs for too long.

I was on my way, but got off the beaten path.

How do I continue this transformation?

Do I need a vacation?

Or would that just be a temporary sensation?

I once had this notion that like a magic potion

growing up would be the beginning

of all the best to come.

Instead what I’ve found

is being naive is not an excuse.

Problems are not solved by circumstance

or by romance, or even by chance.

They are solved from within your soul.

You have to make things happen.

Don’t stand still.

Remember – Targets stand still.


About lucygracesmom

I am a mom of one 10 year old and stepmother to three wonderful adults; ages 20, 23 and 25. The youngest child is just beginning Fifth grade at Ashland Elementary in the Gifted/Quest program. She enjoys playing violin, archery and everything scientific. Mary Stewart is beginning her last year of medical school at Case Western in Cleveland. She and her fiancé, Franklin, plan to marry next June! Charles Morgan just graduated from the College of Charleston and will be beginning Post-Baccalaureate work next month. Betsy is living the college dream at Ole Miss in Oxford studying Business and the most fun ways to party. She plans to take the LSAT next summer! We are very blessed in the family department. My husband is a lawyer specializing in Intellectual Property, computer and entertainment law. We are in the eighth year since starting our own business, Montague Law PLLC. I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk) and now some new and fun work on the firm's website. We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse-themed and it is a very beautiful area to live in and raise a family. I have many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, computer science and security and one of my greatest passions is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family and reading and writing about my interests in my blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
