A Leaf

dontcryitsonlymike:

A leaf falls slowly from the heavens
silently fading into the setting sun
in fear he’d died a thousand times
for love at least that much plus one

A leaf laments his long dead dreams
he’d grow to be a might oak one day
and sheltered beneath his canopy
would laughing children safely play

A leaf at last returning to his mother
marred by age and unseen scars
seeking to find a long lost kindness
it goes down hard in this life of ours

A leaf becomes one with everything
no longer shall the lonely child weep
his journey complete he softly smiles
embraces the earth and goes to sleep

I’m feeling a little guilty about neglecting this blog (dontcry) lately, but it feels good to be back on my original Tumblr Home which I very cleverly named mikefrawley.  This ‘little” blog saved my internet sanity over the last year or so and it’s very special to me, but now that I’m not “brilliantly” following every url on the world wide web, I’m spending more time at home, and it just seems right.  I’m not going to shut it down, but it’s confusing having half of my friends here and half there.  Let’s face facts, it’s not the millions of bloggers on Tumblr that make it special, it’s that hand full that we call friends.  Don’t believe me, check it out.  Whether you get 10 hearts or 10,000 per post, the vast majority probably come from that same small group of people in your circle.  And tell me, where do your hearts go, I know where mine pop up.  Can you say friends?  OK Mr Rogers, I think I’ve made my point, but I’m left with a bit of a dilemma.  It’s a good problem to have for a change, but I’m not following enough people.  I’m following about 400 more people here, and I’m willing to bet that there are numerous friends and newer writers that I’ve missed over there.  I’ve been terrible about following new blogs for a while, but I am trying.  This always sounds like a heart scam to me, but if you’re primarily a writer or already a friend, click the little heart button and I will try my best to follow you back.  It probably won’t happen tonight, but I will try.  OMG, I’m almost afraid to see how long this is when I post it.  :)  Big finish?  Yeah!

If no one’s told you yet today
it’s early, but I’ll say it anyway
yes I do, yes it’s true
and like it or not, I do love you!

Goodnight morning my friends,
Mike <3

STFU

mikefrawley:

Sometimes people, even people we like do things we don’t approve of, and it’s tough to know whether to say something or keep silent.  Long ago I read three questions to ask yourself before telling someone something they probably don’t want to hear anyway.  Here goes.

1.  Is it true?   I think so.
2.  What’s your motive?  I’m not quite sure.
3.  Will it help them?  Probably not.

It’s not my specialty, but sometimes the best course of action may be to take no action.  In other words, STFU. 

An unkind truth is often no better than a lie

Love this!

You know, I like that teapoesie lady.  ;)  Thank you dear friend, and it’s sooo nice to see you around lately.  I actually feel good about that one as well.  I’m slowly, VERY SLOWLY learning that the first and toughest person I have to please as a writer is Mike.  Then if my friends enjoy it, wonderful, and I shouldn’t worry about who else may or may not like it.  It’s not quite that simple, but I’m on the case.  Thank you for the smile I’m wearing now my friend.  <3
