Do My Words Offend Thee?

Writers always take the chance of offending someone.
I have become aware of this lately as I have begun this blog and
am hitting nerves all around the country.
I guess if it’s bothering people, then that means they’re reading them.
This is my response:)

Do My Word Offend Thee?

The internets funny

No talking to you
Just reading about
All of the daily, who knew’s?

No conversations.
No arguments even.
Just quotes from some pages.
Copied and pasted.

I know when you’re angry.
I can tell by the posts.
No need to speak to me.
Just under cuff jokes.

Or total indifference.
It’s easy you see.
Just click on the X.
Or simply block me.

I think that the words,
written down on these pages,
Offend some who “love” me,
Even though they are faceless.

I know that if I,
were to pull out my notebooks,
From some years ago,
And all the wounds were still fresh.

I would be abruptly unfriended.
And dealt with non chalantly.
By messages not answered,
And phone calls mis guided.

it’s not easy for those of us
Whose lives were so altered
By events left unseen
Still broken.

So although I am not going
To confront the offended.
I’ll continue to write,
My peaceful surrender

Writing is all that I have at this point
Pills, padded rooms and mind doctors
Can’t alter,
The memories I have,
They are still part of me.

Pretending to not feel,
Pretending to not see,
Is a sickness that grows,
In a family like cancer.

Shit happens, I guess
It rolls downhill too
My poems, I guess
Just aren’t for you

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
