Exposing Faces Of Reality

Realizing moments of misunderstanding, taking them into
consideration and fixing them in places of affectionate
thoughts.

Taking poverty into lands of fantasy, finding beauty in
it's stark reality, understanding the poverty of each
situation.

Declaring it's truths outright and honestly, no holds
barred, finding faces of reality and exposing them for
what they really are.

National Burying Votes Election Lures

'Free doctors' visits for all under-13s'
no john keys hates spending on poverty needs
but johnny had buckets of money millions

to champagne corks popping spend bubbles
on rich boy races America's Cup dream boats
tax payer dollars taken from hungry mouths

Keys wants 13 million to waste changing NZ flags
PM says tax cuts for glutton wealthy it growth fosters
but for kiwi children in poverty broken promises

Christmas Time

Sadness lined the wrinkles of a father,
His head hung low as he stood with his family waiting to see Santa.
His heart sank as he listened to his children whisper their Christmas wishes,
Knowing full well that they would not receive what they wanted from Santa
As they walked away, his head hung lower
Wishing for a true Christmas miracle, to save his family from the poverty,
That poverty that has now grown on his heart.
A tear he held back from his blue colored eyes,
This is why he never truly loved Christmas time.

Living To Work

To live is teaching my kindergarten boys that it is okay NOT to be the coolest cat on the playground.

To live is conquering poverty while convincing the poverty-stricken they are not stricken by anything for having greater needs than you and me.

To live is teaching my kindergarten girls their hip shakin'/booty shakin' dance is not acceptable during recess. Unless of course they are willing to teach me a few moves.

To live is spending quality time at the lake either on a boat, in a tent, on a jet ski, holding a fishin' pole, storytelling with the stars, etc.


To live is telling at least one joke a day, albeit be lame or thought provoking in hopes of keeping the elevator sane and the bums happy.

To live is advocating change for aspects of our educational system…this pre-occupation with performance rather than understanding is hurting not only our children but also hurting the very educators who keep this country's love for learning alive.

To live is demanding fairness for low socio-economic students and those who are not. Circumstance or lack thereof cannot and should not shape the structure of resources made available.

To live...is helping others.
