she runs

she started a journey
of discovery
in part to belong
and in part to break free
but now she's becoming
the best she can be
when she runs

she's a beautiful mystery
no one can understand
lovely as any woman
and strong as any man
never tell her she can't
'cause she'll show you she can
when she runs

she'll run to the fullest
never just in part
and if her legs grow weary
she'll run with her heart
'cause she'll always finish
anything that she starts
when she runs

with passion in her lungs
and fire in her feet
she takes step after step,
to compete to complete
til she crosses the line
to taste victory sweet
when she runs

she's courage and drive
and determination
she pure inspiration
and raw motivation
to a face in the crowd, or a passerby
who stands in awe and wonders why
she runs

To every "she" that runs with me. Thank you.

Without Words

she is without words
and stared at a blank screen
emptiness blurred
into nothing
and yet inside
raging words grew hot
and formed a clot
and the pressure built
'til she cut and
bloodlet the alphabet
which oozed and flowed
bold and red
and spread across a page
to be read
by those who can read
between the lines
and will find
she is without words

You were the iEye Man
The visionary
Seeing beyond what
Ordinary men could see, and
Revolutionized the face
Of technology
iDeas dreamt by you 
The iMan

The iPod, the iPad
The iPhone. The Mac
Propelled us forward
And we'll never go back
When iHear the phrase
"There's an app for that..."
I'll think of you
The iMan

You were the centre
The heart, the core
The Apple won't taste
The same anymore
Cancer stole a bite
And you lost the war
So close your iEyes
 Mr iMan

A tribute to the late, great Steve Jobs
(Feb 24th 1955 - Oct 5th 2011)

Let's (Not) Talk About It.

If the elephant in the room
Would just take flight
And silence didn't
Replace the fight
 The heavy air
Would become light
You wouldn't be wrong
And I wouldn't be right
