A Change of Focus

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 1:50 pm

As the seasons change

so my focus must change

as some things I see

are not what they seem.

I must roll with the changes

and not dwell in the darkness

not letting

that darkness

bring me down.

I can send my love

through letters

through texts


through whole hearted prayer.

God’s light will always shine

and He will

make me aware

but He knows that some things

are not for me to bare.

I cannot save the world

cannot save everyone

not make right

every wrong

or sing everyone’s song.

For friends who want to know me

here I am standing tall

for those

who deny me

away I must fall.

No one

is a perfect fit on everyone’s plate

I must focus

on only those

who have me inscribed on their slate.




  1. Love this poem, Michael. You are going to laugh out loud with this, I just realized with the last comment you left me you had a blog!!!!

    • Alex,
      Thank you so much too! Your book is fabulous! I love it. Its going slow because I’m not a regular Spanish reader, but its making me study vocab better so its like and educational exercise as well as reading experience. I really love the expressions of your characters. I really feel for Nailah and almost want to cry with her. Un abrazo fuerto a ti y espero que beberas con gusto tu batida de platanos 🙂
