My body IS my vehicle

I sit in my own driver’s seat
Putting my feet
On the accelerator pedal
Deserving my personal medal

Daring to go full gear
No more tears, no more fear
Grabbing the steering wheel in my hands
Driving through unknown lands

Opening the roof
A sense of freedom as proof
The sound of the radio
Turning from mono into stereo

Freeing myself from “my safety belt”
A feeling I have never felt!
The wheels turning full speed
My life taking a new lead

Following the flow of my river
Looking in the rear mirror
Smiling at what I left behind
I no longer mind

Releasing the old reflection
Daring to take a new direction
I FEEL my new “car”
Becoming my “movie star”

The power of the “car” getting stronger
The “Beetle” I need no longer
The brand new “Porsche” becoming me
Loving EVERYTHING I do to be free

This new feeling of freedom
All coming from my own wisdom
What I do want to mention
I look after my own “heart” engine!

(Don’t worry I am not leaving my dear husband ; ))|
(And no, I am NOT having  plastic surgery : )
It is a feeling inside

Here we go again…..


We are in the middle of our Dutch Political Campaign
I think, oh boy, here we go again
Families divided and a lot of strain
Every Politician want their votes to gain
Together we stand in this “Political rain”
All following the “Election train”

I would love to see
The world to be:
Of no political parties
No words packed in colourful “smarties”
I will not put my fate
In another political debate
Telling you the “truth”
“Catching” you for their voting booth
For me it feels like theft
All the secrets they have kept
No more running around the bush
No more hush, hush
No more lies in the face
Of the human race
No more deals
That have been sealed
Behind closed doors
But LEADERS on the political floors

I want LEADERS to work as one
When for an Election they run
LEADERS who are honest
I put my trust in what they promised
No left, no right
But those that fight for OUR birthright
Their agenda must be for OUR interest
THEN I will do my political best, to invest


We are all Unique

Today I will start
With only the “outer part”
We have our own eyes to see
Grey, blue, brown or green to be
In eyes you can see joy and fear
We also have ears to hear
You have them in different size(s)
They Receive words of hate or wise
Our mouth is to speak and to taste
Sweet words spoken or are they a waste?
Our arms and hands are to use
Are “ours” made to love or to abuse?
Our body is made of atoms and cells
We even have our own alarm bells
Which we love to ignore
Avoiding our own inner intuitive door
Do we appreciate our body “construction”?
Think about its beautiful function!

Feet and legs to walk in a direction
The roads of life are simple or of complexion
Our fingers have their own print
So the police can get a hint; )

But what I want to say
That each and every day
There is only one me and you
It is up to us what we do
We are all so very Unique
We can be of love or a freak
And when we miss a body part?
We all fit in Mother Earth’s great heart!

Social media and me

You have Social media
And you have a Lia (me)
This relationship is of love-hate
This I will debate:

When you like to share
You put your presence out there
But who on Earth would care?
Oh my dear!
Then starts the fear!
How will it appear?

I put my words together
my inner discussion starts on whether
I will push the button of “publish”?
Maybe people will think it is rubbish!!!
I still have poor media skill(s)
For me they are not a thrill
It is about a little social media “flirt,”
But I want NOBODY to get hurt!
Once you put it out there
It can go everywhere
You have twitter and tweet
This is all done in a heart beat
Once said it is done
No place to run
Instagram and LinkedIn
Are still not my “kin”; ((

Social media and me
Still need to find the right key!


Today there is a lot at stake
Is the news real or is it fake?
The whole world is watching you
Whatever it is you are going to do

Politicians have done their very best
To create a lot of unrest
The media played their own role
Telling about elections that “one stole”

A lot of people are looking for a confrontation
To divide a once great nation
I hope they will come together as one
Not looking back at what was once done

But move forward in unity
To create again a country of beauty
Together you are strong
You have been all along

You just looked in the wrong direction
Forgetting your true connection
Do not look at other countries for a “correction”
But look at them with affection

I hope there will be a positive action:
“The “Captain” sailing in a new direction”
To sail in the winds of change
Where all of us need to rearrange

Today a candle I will light
For a new future of Hope, and to be bright
That is what I am going to do
Sending sunshine and love to you!

“A very special Big Band”


I know a Big Band
Made of a very unique “brand”
The story I will tell
Is made up by hospital personal

Born out of a “serious Request”
Everybody does his/her very best
Nurse’s, doctors etc and a kitchen princess!
are all under a lot of stress!

Because at the very core
There is even more:
A special daughter and her father
Tell them all to come and gather

Violins, trumpets, dances, songs, and drums
Always give me goosebumps!
There are very special guest(s)
At this once a year fest

But what touches my heart the very most
Is the voice of  this unique “daughter” Host
It Goes right through my soul
My heart goes out of control!

You think this story can’t be true?
It is made up out of the blue?
I would just love to invite
you all, to this very special night

When ALL the people of this Band
Stand together,”hand in hand”
This is symphony
in perfect Harmony

Made possible by father and daughter
I want to, applaud him, applaud her
All of their family involved
Every possible problem solved!

Working together has a dynamic role
with a very special goal
To give you even more clarity:
“The money always goes to a special Charity”!

Coming together should be a new norm,
It helps you to survive every storm!


The “haves” and the “haves not”

(A little bit of Brain Gym: ))

The “haves not”
Do not have what the “haves” got
The few “haves” have a lot
But the “haves” forgot

To be aware
And to share
To be fair
They do not care

About the “haves not”
The “haves” know, what THEY have got
is very hot
Stirring the pot

By some big Hot Shot(s)
Creating a plot
Using this “vulnerable” spot
of the ‘haves not”

I beg the “haves” what they got
to share their “lot”
With the “haves not”
THEN this will no longer be a hot spot

(I saw a very interesting video:
“Finland eliminates School Subjects
in Favor of Topics”!
You can find it on internet)

Who am I?

(A great big melting pot ; ))

Every day
We hear about our DNA
I share with my sister and brother
from my father and mother

But I also care
what genes my grandparents share
What “resides”
in me from both sides?

But wait, there is even more:
“What do my great grandparents have in store”?
Say: “Two parents,  blonds”,  get a girly
Hair black and curly

The mother  would have a lot of strain
And even more to explain
But it could be a secret in the family
By the name “of an Emily”

It could become ver”sticky”
and even quite “tricky”
when we discover
Our great grandparent had a lover!

Families get mixed
marriages no longer “fixed
Now we have got
A great big melting pot!

We want to know who we truly are
From which countries we come,  from which “star”?
We are not just from one nation
But an aspect of all creation

My passport could say; ” A citizen of the World”
That would make me free as a bird!

A love story gone wrong

It is true
I found you, eyes so blue
The love of my life
“Please be my wife”
After a while, I am done
I have had my fun
I can no longer find
What I had in my mind

It isn’t true
Your eyes are not that blue
Your blond hair faded
Your body disintegrated
Your stomach has grown
Between your eyes a frown
It is not fair
Boobs no longer up “there”

It is true
I found some one new
Brown eyes not bleu….
