Odes from Inside & Out by Terry Fisher

This is another ode from Terry Fisher’s upcoming book Inside and Out. This of course is part of the major freelance project I worked on in January and February. You find my thoughts on this project here. Reflecting on my Big Freelance Project

This ode is of a special friend of Terry’s who passed away. I hope you enjoy.

Ode to Mary Soto



Mary, Mary, Mary—
Don’t be quite so contrary.
Here, you see we love you so—
Please don’t give up on us and go.

I’ll decide to believe in God—
To Him I will pray and applaud.
For great things for you to happen—
There’s much more for you than heaven.

You have been so very strong—
We’ve been in awe of you all along.
Miracles do happen—
Just don’t make me keep on rappin’.

My rhymin’ here has gone to hell.
I guess that’s just as well.
‘Cause there’s just one thing to tell—
Mary Soto we love you.


Please Help me Publish my Memoir

I am getting close to finishing my memoir “The Bipolar Writer” and I have decided to go down the self-publishing route. If you can donate anything towards my goal, it would mean the world to me. Those that donate will get a special mention in my memoir.
