It is snowin’

today its snowin’

again its snowin’

and its blowin’

my mind away

wondering soon

if EVER I will

wake up to a

nicer more normal

spring day?


So what is

normal will the

day ever come

when I can go

outside without

bundling up so

I do not freeze

because after all

according to

“someone we know”

Global Warming

is just a myth invented

by The Chinese.


This is just crazy

crazy weather

crazier than I can

ever remember to

be freezing day

in and out this April

after broiling in the

nineties day in and

out last September!

Spring Breakout!

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 2:41 pm

It is time to break

out from the bonds

of past constraints

it is time to break

down the toxic barriers

caused by melodramas

and complaints.


It is time to break out

from the winter that

has kept us frozen in

one position, preventing

us from reaching for

better in a spring of

mobile transition.


Yesterday needs to be a

teaching tool of where

we came from and what

can be achieved while within

our today we need to cast

away those who are toxic and

only out to deceive.


Neither time nor

experience are elements

one can borrow, no one

but one’s self can invest

in what one needs to do

one’s best in continuing

toward a better brighter



Let no one make

someone believe

that they are not

worth the time

by spending each

day giving just the

minimum they are

selling their listeners

out for a value less

than a dime

what a crime

to waste the time

instead of empowering

or inspiring

so many are only

clocking in

then clocking out

while leaving their

charges wallowing in

an abyss of slime.


It is time to break out

and release the self

doubt before it

shrouds our


into its dark

desolate prime.

Walking Out

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 8:56 am

They walked

because their leaders

have only talked.


There was talk of

making things better

but all that was said


was sent straight away

to the office of dead ears

and of the dead letter.


Any bill introduced to

get firearms reduced was

rung through the paper shredder.


They walked

and I am proud of them

in making their voices heard.


This generation

like my generation

deserves a quality education.


But let there be added one

important word, a quality

SAFE education.


God Bless all students

faculty and staff of all

Forty Days

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 5:49 pm

Lent is




To many

Lent is dull

to many

the thought of


clouds the


of life with a

grey foggy lull.


Lent in The North is

still the presence of

Winter’s whitest snow

while in The South, Lent

is a warmer, much more

colorful new spring

floral show.


Many ask why

they should recognize

Lent as a reminder of

a sacrificial event so

heartbreaking so

sad by many forget

that that very


was truthfully

was wholeheartedly


to renew our hearts

clean our souls

and help us to be

eternally, spiritually

Murderous Eyes

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 4:58 pm

We see the eyes

every time they

show the face


which at a distinct

time not long ago

began to affix


its eyes on a

deadly prize while

living day to day


under a stealth hidden

facial disguise that all

was positive all was


well while within

those walls of that

room that they always


eventually reveal is where

we see the layout

of the plan to release


the bloody hell that

we have had to hear

so many in the press or in


the law come forth

in front of the cameras to

sadly and somberly tell.


We need to make sure

the kinds of weapons in

Columbine, in Denver, in


Sandy Hook, in Parkland

are not accessed by

those obsessed in


the first place but

we also need to help

plant a better seed


into the minds of all

so that they do not

become the next murderous face.

Success (based on words written by Angie Martinez)

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 5:29 pm

Get out there and

do your best

and when your

dreams come true

and you achieve


do not let others

match your pace

and run along

aside your race

do not let them

get in your face

and try to make

a case

to get in your



Make the best

of your success

but do not let

others get next to

it do not give

away a piece of

it that lets them

make a mess of

it keep your crew

around you

keep your heart and

soul true do not let

others bring you

down like a strain of

the flu

by giving out too

much access to

it so that they take

it and make their own

self excess of it.

Deepest Thinking

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 7:38 pm

Do you ever daydream?

Do you ever linger

in thought making

a wish that what is

real is not as

taxing or not as tough

as presently it may seem?


One a winter’s night of

a gentle snow do you ever

bundle up to go out, lay down

and watch the show making a

wish on every falling flake

hoping for a successful

chance to take?


Do you ever wish the moon

could transport you to other

places away from the disgust

on so many other faces so

that day in and day out

you shining light will be

what the times are all about?


Can you see with your own

eyes that the beauty in

this world is as numerous

or more than the stars of

the clearest skies not over

obsessing on that which

you think you want but

are not realistically possessing?


Do your daydreams ever

reveal about you that

what is good around you

could not have been

invested without you?

Make those dreams turn

Into something real by

bringing out your best

in everything you express,

do, and feel!

It is amazing to see

what hands can make.

It is amazing to taste

what hands can bake.

It is amazing to know

what hands can grow.

It is amazing to realize

what hands can materialize.

The beauty of what they

make we can see with our

own eyes but despite a

promising commission

despite a prestigious

position what we do with




Hands are not to be

put to inappropriate use

hands are to embrace not

to abuse hands can direct

but others have the right

to reject.











Do not abuse any animal

whether it is wild or a domestic pet.

Abuse of anyone or anything only

Marks you with great shame

and follows you with deep regret.


The use of our hands must

be to do good, staying focused

on doing the things that they

New Inspirations

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 9:56 pm

Writing today

it’s a new season

it’s a new day

I cannot think of

a better reason

to write

before this cold day

retreats into a

stormier night

in this

recently arrived

new year

I look at each day

be it cold




as no time better

than the present

to think what I

wish to think

and write down

what I wish to say

hoping to light

someone’s light

making bright

someone’s day

believing that I

can always do my

best not only

to preach but to

inspire as I

teach to inspire

my students to inspire

my family to inspire

my friends

to look

to dream

way up high

and for those


to constantly
