4 minutes 

Now is the time
to be a mother warrior
because all mothers
have more power
because they can stretch
beyond ordinary things
because they can walk on fire
for you and you
fight this fight with words
I can
fight day and night
for every child
for every dream that was ended
with bullets
for every dream that didn’t have to end
for every deadly orange sized wound
for every piece of shrapnel embedded in your body
for every life that was suddenly changed
I can walk and find your pain
on the hill of flowers and teddy bears

those who failed to act when
there was a dire need
push the blame
day after day but the guilt
will rip them apart eventually

they need to go to 1200 building

only if one person put it
on their priority list
only if 18 year olds
where not able to buy guns
only if the ones who
allowed AR-15s
to be widely available
stopped it before it was too late
they could have…

What were you thinking
when you signed that bill Mr?
Were you drunk among hundreds of others?
I am a mother and would not sign such a thing
I know better then you
I don’t do what others tell me to do

yet I respect all around me

I don’t smile for the camera
but I look into your eyes
and I see a shallow men
I trust you to keep youth safe
but your brains are
just dead meat

only if I could multiply
I would be there
to speak in congress
to lead the world
to make it better
to be that policeman
who didn’t go in
hiding by the staircase
to be that captain who failed
to issue a better command
hundreds of us wouldn’t hesitate
to run inside
Students and teachers didn’t – to protect others
The heroes and angels they became forever
and they didn’t have no guns
just themselves !!!!
they were not prepared nor trained to stop the gunfire
yet you were but didn’t try
you could have taken a few steps
the gunmen would flee
lives would be saved
one or seventeen
4 minutes of hell
would not happen
only if …

Let’s make world a better place
Stop gun violence
All lives matter
Stay strong
say no to guns
choose to say something

#poetry for MSD
#power of words
#for MSD strong
#from a Mother of MSD students
#choose to speak up




Out of nothing
out of dust and emptiness
colors are brewing
because of the sun
because of the green trees
sounds strike silence
where the birds used to fly
you talk to me from
behind the glass
I imagine every word
because I like to imagine things
because things that I imagined
come to me ….


Empty box of chocolates I have
your entire love I ate
and I am a little bit sweeter
more like raspberry hazelnut and vanilla
I will wake up hungry on Wednesday
still craving

the ocean …
touchable escape
for a searching soul
in me
in every season
opening my eyes to the world
waking up every frozen cell
cooling my atoms
for a perfect reaction 
minus all cozy distractions 

the strange but not foreign 

pulsating giant flower
of the earth
the sun ray catcher
my remedy for sadness
and beginning of happiness
where everything keeps floating
until you sink it

You can

New Year brings unknown
you can start all over
you can find joy in
first snow and touch of sun rays
you can wish health and success
and look deeply in their eyes
crush what didn’t happen
the way you wanted to
and you can go on another
journey and admire
everything again
and you can fall into
a rainbow of hope
and keep writing
in the horizons of dreams
