To Take a Life

By Frank - icare2be, published on Dec 3, 2010

...memory with the rising sun.

Unlike my usual dreams, I was wide awake in the dream. It was as real as midday or midafternoon daydreaming. This dream or nightmare was oneof those times when a pinch might have been appropriate to determine if it was real. I was contemplating the taking of a life or rather what one word would describe the justification of taking that life. The dream took in many of scenarios we have seen, heard, or read about in books.

I thought about the many ways euthanasia could occur. Of the suffering it would relieve in one and cause in others. There was... (more)

The Aspens Are Speaking

By Frank - icare2be, published on Dec 2, 2010

The gentle breezes And the leaves are conversing.

At times the voicesSound like a waterfall.

At other times,A roaring avalanch.

Then, I hear applause.In the distance, then coming closer.

There is a pause In the breeze.

The conversation seizes.Silence of the forest surrounds me.

And then, like us, The conversation begins anew.

The aspens are speaking!

Every year I take a trip to see the aspens leaves turning yellow, gold and even orange. People call the aspens quaking when the leaves shake and you can hear them shaking against each other.... (more)

A Life in Review

By Frank - icare2be, published on Nov 22, 2010

In the beginning of my lifeI was held, nurtured, fed,All needs cared for.A simple grunt or tear brought immediate attention.

Toddler gave way to youth.Dependence began to give way to doing it my way.Nurturing was replaced with freedom to learn and explain.

Youth was replaced with puberty and adolescence.Self-doubt and guilt entered my life to challenge my confidence.Poverty came my way with lessons of life.

adolescence was conquered by my rebellion of young adult-hood.I was omniscient, omnipotent, will live forever, especially today.I will do it my way!

Young adult-hood... (more)

A Hand

By Frank - icare2be, published on Nov 19, 2010

A hand outstretched,From light into the darkness.

A hand groping into the unknown,From light into the darkness.

A hand reaching toward a lost one,From light into the darkness.

A hand holding firm upon the despaired,From light into the darkness.

A hand bringing peace and healing,From light into the darkness.

A healing hand for the desolate,From light into the darkness.

A healing hand filled with confidence,From light into the darkness.

A healing hand conveying strength and reassurance,The darkness turning into light.

A Woman's Prayer

By Frank - icare2be, published on Nov 17, 2010

Dear Lord, I pray for Wisdom to understand my man,Love to forgive him,Patience for his moods;Because Lord, if I pray for StrengthI'll beat him to death.

If not patience Lord A cheap, but successful barrister Specializing in spousal abuse And an understanding judge and jury.

If not wisdom Lord Let my mind be gone For since he is responsible To take care financially, If not personally.

Ahhh! Thank you Lord!I cannot express my heart-felt feelings. You delivered a solution unthought of. May the heat below provide his reward.

Thinking of You!

By Frank - icare2be, published on Nov 17, 2010

I am thinking of you!

I think of you each month. No, more than that.

I think of you each week. No, No, more than that.

I think of you each day.No, No, more than that.

I think of you each morning As I wake,

And as I lay my head on the pillow. No, No, more than that.

I think of you with each breath I take.Now that is getting closer.

I think of you with each thought I have. Now that is exaggerating.

But I am definitely thinking of you!
