raising teens

to get by
I don't know why
I often feel the need to sigh
and wonder just how others ply
with teens in house-hold supply
there are days now when both comply
and then there are days when I can only cry
but I am truly hopeful that in the future by and by
that my teens will be not only my kids but a willing ally

new bike

getting a new bike
is something I like

going faster than before
will improve my score

cycling more efficient
means less energy spent

aerodynamic will also aid
so my energy won't fade

easier gear shifts will allow
me to learn the feel and how

to let my body be my guide
and get the most out of my ride

foot pain

not sure what to do
about this foot pain
I've been feeling

the pain is not so
bad each day yet
still keeps me reeling

can't walk or run
exactly with proper form
this will only lead

to more exaggerated
problems and my
healing impede

so I am going today
to another doc to see
just what he thinks

about how far this
has gone and if I am
on the brink

of a surgery in my
future, which I had
already been told

was something I need
but I've kept putting
it on hold

fund raiser

if eating pizza
can help a kid

then eat it up
just like we did

something else
I didn't know

was the added fun of
the live music show

raffles for tickets
and even a date

added more fun
to the pizza on the plate

kids also bought shirts
to help raise funds

for a friend in need-who
hopefully raised thousands
