“I Wonder?”…~Maxwanette A Poetess


(Picture derived from Google)


As I wonder what life has in store for me,

          I deal with my fears of inadequacy.

Not sure where it is I’m going,

          Wondering if my insecurities are showing.

I think carefully as to what it is I need,

          Should I slow down or pick up my speed?

What is it, that I must find?

          Where is my thread in this grand design?

Thinking and pondering, what it is I must do,

          Saying that I’m worthless…Could this be true?

My heart and my mind are battling, going their separate ways,

          As I wonder, when will something sensible remain?

Sitting and watching, day-by-day,

          As life simply slips further and further away.

As I encounter my thoughts, dreams, and things that I own,

          My fear rises as I travel down the road of the unknown.

Just trying to put things together and get them done,

          Going through the journey, surrounded, yet alone, wondering about that special one?

Looking at what life has to offer, not sure what I see.

          Is this only happening to me?

I wonder…?

“I Wanted”

I wanted you.

I wanted to feel and to be within you.

I wanted to be the glimmer in your eyes, I wanted truth.


I wanted to be the friend you never had.

I wanted you to be happy, learning &

to be your rock during the sad.


I wanted to travel with you to wild places.

That cranial-trip, through the void & empty spaces,

That makes you, you.


I wanted so much,

It now seems so selfish of me, towards you.

A cluttering of stuff…


I wanted and wanted,

Now it’s all daunted 

because I forgot to find out if you wanted it too.

“Sometimes we forget that relationships are not just about, what you want. It must be a mutual over-standing. So, there must be mutual goals, expectations and be willing to compromise. Above all, be willing for change & to change. Remember, it takes two😉

“Flight Of Life”~Maxwanette A Poetess


(Picture taken ~ Gulfport, MS 2015)

Flight Of Life

Fluttering around rapidly

Flying into the proverbial walls of life

Still & stagnated moments…



One may even assume, that death has arrived

In ways…death was ever ruling, over millions of times

Recharged & revived, by reconnecting with self




Flapping of wings

“Never giving up–Never giving in”

Constant vibrations & movements

Flutters becoming flaps, flaps becoming flight,

And the freedom, within this Universe, continues…
