Some people who think they know everything

know nothing at all.

Some people who don’t speak up

know more than they could ever say.

Loud mouths make the most noise

like fireworks bursting in the night.


And like a child afraid of the sound

I cover my ears so I don’t have to hear:

I know this…BOOM!

You’re wrong about this…BOOM!

And in my head; fireworks are lighting up the sky.

BOOM! How much can you take?

BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Before you break.

Before you burst like a firework with a long fuse.

Your mouth pops off…BOOM!

And the fireworks you display,

puts the last hurrah of their fireworks to shame.

Happily married, aspiring writer that thinks sometimes the destination is worth the journey. Sometimes the journey is worth the destination. Then again, sometimes the journey is just HARD and the destination isn't worth the time it took to get there. Sometimes the journey is EASY and the destination STILL isn't worth it! The only constant is that there is always a journey and always a destination. I would LOVE for you to follow me on my journey and together we can find the destination. So, come on, we have to keep on keeping on!
