Omnia Mea Mecum Porto*

Poem By Elena V. Moonray

My heart is broken
But I am alive
And I intend to continue
Remaining this way

My pride is broken
But I will grow a new
Because my pride
Does not depend on you

My cheerfulness was gone
But not for good
I will smile again
Before a new moon

My confidence was broken
But not for very long
Everything mine
Is coming back to me

It was great when you though I am special,
But when you changed your mind
Everything mine
Still stayed with me

I did not know this
I thought it would all go away
Everything I had
When you left

Smart people figured it
Centuries ago, saying
“Omnia mea mecum porto”-
Everything mine I carry with me

And now I finally know
what it really means...
Things that are mine
Nobody can take away.

Everything mine I get to keep!

* a latin proverb

I am afraid of thunderstorms and can’t look at the lightening
And am avoiding being in thunderstorms all my life
And hide under the table when it catches me off guard
So that I won’t see all these scary blue lights

I have not seen a paw like that for ages
Lets sit together quietly and bark,
Bark at the moon at stillness of the night
