All I Ever Could Be  

All I Ever Could Be



Defending the poor and unfortunate

caring with a heart so compassionate

ah! a lawyer that’s what I will be

back then as a little girl I decided with glee.


Broadcasting news on TV

doing it with a mind so steady

ah! a television anchor I see

back in high school, I was so carefree.


Pouring thoughts on paper

scribbling late at night so dear

ah! a journalist I will be

back in college with free will.


Never became a lawyer really

it wasn’t my dream actually

‘Twas a childish thing to wish

no dirt to dish.


Broadcasting wasn’t even for me

‘though I had the chance to be

you see surgery on the neck

making it hard to speak.


A writer I may have always been

creating stories now and then

putting actions into words

screaming as I scribble with thoughts.


You see there’s something I missed

never imagined I’d enjoy it with bliss

caring for little souls, giving them a place to grow

motherhood is what makes me glow.


I am a proud mom to my four lovely daugthers

  1. Excellent. The greatest one can ever be. Any career can be achieved by hard work and focus. But being a proud Mom is not everyone’s game. It is the toughest in the world and definitely the most loving job. I have seen my wife all these years and I know what this momhood entails.
    Our warm wishes to you


  2. I am always impressed by how much you mothers can take on … parenting, home schooling, writing, publishing, working, exercising!

    Yet being a parent is truly amazing, no rule book … but the proof is in how they turn out as adults 🙂


  3. Being a mom is THE greatest calling and job in the whole world! 🙂 I LOVE being a mom AND a grandmom! 🙂
    All of those things…listening, making decisions, helping referee 😉 , talking, writing, etc…you use all of those to be the GREAT mom that you are, SweetMich!!! 🙂
    HUGS to you and your 4 daughters!!!!
    ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤


  4. Its life. College days have so much in hand and then time changes everything. It only fulfills that one dream which exists only in the heart.
    Beautiful carving as always Mich. 🙂
