Emotional Weekend

My wife and I would like to apologize for lack of posts this week.  This weekend has been very emotional for us.  On Friday we had two family members admitted to the hospital for separate issues.  My wife’s grandma was admitted into one hospital while a cousin was admitted into another hospital where he is fighting for his life from a horrific motorcycle accident.

My wife is working on a new poem and when things settle down, she will post the poem.

Throwback Thursday

Hi Everyone,

I just posted a poem I wrote over 15 years ago about the company that I work for.  This brought back so many memories because, looking back, I realize that a lot of things have changed over the years!  I started at INALLIANCE as a receptionist many, many years ago…I can’t believe it now but back in the day there was a couch in the receptionist office that employees would come hang out on at the end of the day (or even when they just wanted to take a break).   Also, reading the poem I was very surprised by all the times I mentioned looking forward to the end of the day or the week, but sometimes, I think it was just to make a rhyme 🙂

All I know is the one thing that hasn’t changed over the years is my appreciation for our staff and all they do on a day to day basis!!

As usual, my poems can be found on http://www.modicamedia.com/poems/


Busy Week

It’s been a pretty busy week.  Got a page setup so my wife can post the poems she writes.  Making this weekend kind of a lazy weekend.  Only doing thing that have to be done.  🙂

The Journey

Here’s my first poem released today, you can also find it on the poems page.

The Journey

Starting a journey to make a change in our life, hopefully fast

My nerves say procrastinate, step on the break but now is the time to hit the gas.

So many decisions and choices to make

And that’s just to figure out what road we should take

And then there’s the hurdles and bridges to cross

But if we don’t move forward, it would be a great loss.

So we drive further and speed over small hills and bumps

And as we pass each one, my stomach does somersaults and my heart starts to thump

The next mile is a big one, we go through the next town

And if we’re lucky we may just find the road we want to go down

As we progress, I realize that everyone in their life has at least one journey to take

And where it leads us, is partially our decision to make

Even though the final destination may be left up to fate

It’s up to us to make it great!

So as we take the next step forward I pray nothing goes wrong.

Because this is something I’ve been dreaming about for oh so long.



Hi Everyone,

This is Charlene.   When I was growing up, I used to write poems as a hobby.  But when life got busy through school and other changes that come with growing up, I put poetry on the back burner.  Although I’m not quite ready to share the full meaning behind the poem, I will tell you that an upcoming change in our life has inspired me to start writing again.  It feels that this poem almost wrote itself as I started thinking of verses that would work well together.  I hope this will be just one of many poems that I will write and share in the future.  I am also planning on dusting off my old scrapbooks which contain some of my old poems and sharing those as well.  I hope you enjoy reading these poems and that they bring some inspiration into your life!
