Boomer’s Ramblings

I wouldlike to present to you the following articles: The first is something I wrote a short while back, I titled it “I Don’t Want”.

I Don’t Want

I don’t want to be one of the many lonely souls that feels that love has passed him by.

I don’t want to be a man who’s eyes reflect that life has dragged on wondering why.

I don’t want to wonder if I should throw away pictures I have stashed in a drawer.

I don’t want to delete memories off my computer as they mean nothing anymore.

I don’t want to wake up wondering where everything went so wrong.

I don’t want to go through life knowing that the woman I love is forever gone.


This second one is something I picked up from Facebook. I like it so much I feel it needs to be shared. It is about facing your fears, because you know what they really are.


Nothing in life is to be feared It is only to be understood.
Now is the time to under stand more So that we may fear less.

1. Replace fear with curiosity the only thing to fear is fear itself
2. You’re not scared of the dark, you are scared of what’s in it
3. You’re not afraid of heights your afraid of falling
4. You’re not afraid of the people around you, you are afraid of rejection.
5. You are not afraid of love you are afraid of not being loved back
6. You’re not afraid to let go, you are afraid of accepting the fact that it is gone.
7. You’re not afraid to try again, you are afraid of getting hurt for the same reason.

Other topics I have to talk about.
This stems from posts I have seen. The journey of a thousand steps begin with the first one.
A novel of a thousand pages has to start with the first word.
A great work of heart must start with a single stroke of the brush, tap of the chisel, a mound of clay…..
A journey of the heart starts with a single hello.







About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
