Waiting in Line

    A long line of people stretched ahead of Jess. The people in front of her seemed not to be moving, but she did not care because her mind was busy remembering her journey to get here.  Had she done enough, and was she ready? Should she get out of the line and go back?      The requirements to get inside this place, and then becoming one of them were strict.  Jess smiled as she remembered how many mistakes she had made in her life before deciding to get into this lineup, but self-help, hard work, prayers, and determination had helped her to overcome those failures.       Jess knew her most...

The Tunnel

                                                                                            The Tunnel        It was time to begin her journey, and Elsa wondered, was she prepared? Once taking the first step on to the pathway, there would be no going back.      Elsa took a deep breath, then saw herself at the opening to the tunnel.  A path stretched out in front of her, leading ever deeper into the dark hollow, but she could see only a few feet in front of her.   As Elsa stepped on to the walkway, it began to move slowly like a conveyor belt going deeper into the tunnel as it picked up...

Hands

I Served You Well

Ode to Old Van Vleck High 2020   I Served You Well Many students have graced my halls, giving priceless memories to my walls. Classes were taught to help you grow, I watched you learn things, you did not know. Laughter and spirit-filled my inner core, of students, teachers, and many more. My intercom brought you announcements, music, and prayer, the principals were always listening there. Through the years my structure was changed, making way for additions, but my spirit remained. Although being demolished, I did not fail. I live in your Memories, I served you well      ...

Our Endless Love

 Our Endless Love  My heart beats strong, although shattered and broken,  my love for you will forever be spoken. Our love for each other was a gift from above, God planned our hearts to share endless love. Living without you brings so much emotion, although you surround me with your love and devotion. Heaven awaits me, where we will meet again, to share an eternal love that will never end. My eyes are dry, and I must not weep. I am strong, but I am weak....
