Iíve traveled down lifeís rough road hitting all the bumps and dips.
Have learned a lot of lessons that only life like this equips.
Iíve often thought of writing down the trials of my life,
but who would want to read a book thatís full of painful strife.

Now Iím not trying to tell you that no good has ever come.
I count two great successes in my daughter and my son.
But many times Iíve often thought how happy I would be.
If I could just have one smooth spot in all this misery.

It seems as soon as Iíve stood up and brushed off my backside.
Here comes another trial that once again hits me broadside.
I guess the Lord is trying to strengthen me with miseries.
When next you see me on the street just call me Hercules.

Not all poems I write are about me personally, yet they do come from MY soul.

Hey Herc,
Let them boulders down off your shoulders already...quit trying to carry the load alone. I know you know where to look for help. Cute poem though, Lucie.

Is all that we see or seem
but a dream within a dream?

Help is always here dear friend and though in Darkness, my hand is ever outstretched.

Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

Is Hercules doing the drag queen thing these days?

Pardon the humour, but this made me smile -- they say misery loves company, and my misery is thrilled that she is not alone!
