Life Doesn’t Frighten Me

Maya AngelouBy Maya Angelou More Maya Angelou

Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Bad dogs barking loud
Big ghosts in a cloud
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Mean old Mother Goose
Lions on the loose
They don’t frighten me at all

Dragons breathing flame
On my counterpane
That doesn’t frighten me at all.

I go boo
Make them shoo
I make fun
Way they run
I won’t cry
So they fly
I just smile
They go wild

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Tough guys fight
All alone at night
Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Panthers in the park
Strangers in the dark
No, they don’t frighten me at all.

That new classroom where
Boys all pull my hair
(Kissy little girls
With their hair in curls)
They don’t frighten me at all.

Don’t show me frogs and snakes
And listen for my scream,
If I’m afraid at all
It’s only in my dreams.

I’ve got a magic charm
That I keep up my sleeve
I can walk the ocean floor
And never have to breathe.

Life doesn’t frighten me at all
Not at all
Not at all.

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

More Facts

Another week is here with more useless facts you mayor may not know.

The ”talkies” films with sound didn’t appear till 1927, although the silent films were not that silent.

When you saw a film there was a presenter called the ” the master of ceremonies” who would read out any words and fill in details of the plot.

Specially employed actors would hide behind the screen and speak the actors’ lines

Machines, like the ”noiseograph” and ”dramagraph” would add sound effects to the action.

Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon after 21st March

I woke at 5.30am, got up and sent Tasha a text at 5.45am.

Raining since I got up, Leo didn’t answer his phone and I had to get Tasha to tell him to come and get his stuff and head up to meet his driver.

Awake at 5.33 again, got up and peed, opened the house before I sent letting her know I was up.

I was feeling so tired, that at 8am I went back to bed for 1hr 15 muns.

Raining most of the day.

Had a lay down after Leo got home.

At6pm I decided to have a bath before going to have my MRI as I felt like I smelt but Jess arrived and got Tasha to shower me.

Stopped raining around 2pm so I was able to meet Leo and go to my appointment without getting wet.

Woke with the alarm, still raining, so couldn’t go with Leo due to the rain.

Spoke to Mum she mostly ok, Sandy rang her mobile as Mum wasn’t answering the house phone, she had been trying for 30 minutes,i said Mum and I had been chatting for 35 minutes.

After Mum & Sandy hung up Mum & I chatted for a further 10 minutes before hanging up.

While chatting to Mum the birds Tim have been feeding turned up, so I got some bread and feed them.

Woke at 6am straight out of bed and sent a text to Tasha. Still raining all day.

I don’t feel with it this afternoon. I am very tired.

Tasha came down at 2pm to give me a shower.

Tried to talk to Mum about her Chrisco order but she wasn’t with it enough to get what I was saying.

A new day awake and up at 5.50am, Tasha here by 6am. Tim up at 6.20 he started at 7.50am.

No rain so I was able to take Leo up the front.

Mum was so so, she remembered ringing Chrisco and canceling

I am having a shocking day,shaking and feeling not with it.

I rang Mum at 1.40 so I could be done by the time Tasha arrived to shower me.

By 2.45 I was falling asleep. Tasha said it is the new medication making me so tired. She may be right.

I woke at 5.26aman got up 10 minutes later. I set stuff up and unpacked the dishwasher and was having my wash when I texted Tasha.

Been a cool but sweaty day for me, being drenched in sweat while attempting to go to the toilet.

So very tired again, I am wondering if it is the new medication and might cutout the midday tablet and see how that goes.

I woke at 6.40 and got up after restless night. I am feeling sick in the gut and had a bad start dropping stuff and shaking.

Tim was suppose to take his bike back to the place that did the work on it but they rang as he was leaving to say that he will have to push it back till Monday.

Was on the phone to Mum when Kathy arrived to shower me. I was so very tired.

Poem Day

For Love’s Sake

Published: October 2007

I’m so tired of this empty feeling.
I’m so tired of being alone.
I lay here staring at the ceiling,
Waiting by the phone.

I jump when the phone rings.
It brings a smile to my face.
When he hangs up my heart stings,
And I sink back into my lonely place.

I wish and I dream
That we’ll be together soon.
I can’t wait until we can look up hand in hand
At the stars and at the moon.

I yearn for his kisses
His touch – his embrace.
I can’t wait for Thursdays
When I get to see his face.

I’m flooded with thoughts of him
In my heart, soul, and mind.
I imagine his touch,
So gentle and kind.

I try not to weep.
I hope he doesn’t hear my cries,
But I can’t stop the tears
Falling from my eyes.

I cry a thousand tears
And think – how much more can I take?
But in my heart I know I’d wait a thousand years
All for love’s sake.
