There are many things I could have done,
But once the end comes all is dead,
And the battle is never won.
There are many things I could have seen,
There are many things that I could have stopped,
But nothing is as it had been,
No one saw this coming but it finally flopped.
I miss talking to you,
I miss sitting in your kitchen,
I miss eating the food you do,
I miss everything we had then.
In my heart you are still my friend,
In my heart you are still my sister,
In my heart our friendship never did end,
On my heart I carry a blister.
I want to text you like I did before,
I want to write you an email, too
I want to see you walk in through the door,
I miss you, friend, I really do.
The pain I carry in my heart,
These three months have made me cry,
The stupidity that keeps us apart,
I can't put aside even if I try.
So how do I overcome this sadness that I feel?
What should we do to get over this, friend?
Will my pain go away, will it ever heal?
Because I promised to be your friend to the end.
Your life now takes a new turn, I hear,
I send my love and it is true,
This is a gift of a lifetime, my dear,
So I send my love for all of you.

I knew you were heading down that path,
I knew you would say you are smart.
But what I tried to say was that we are women,
And there is no way we are safe with men.
I feel I should have been here to stop you,
I feel I should have known what you would do,
But I tried to understand that you are growing up,
But I think you have taken more than a full cup.
This is something that should have taken time,
This is the stairs I wish you had not climbed.
There is no turning back now as we all know,
But was that really the way to go?
There might be hurt and pain coming your way,
I hope this won’t go down as a very sad day.
But if it does, I’ll be there for you,
Because I know what you are going through.

The innocence of a child is the joy of the parents. (Brenda A. Ysaguirre)
Happy Easter, Cici, My Little Princess
It's Easter Sunday as I sit here,
Wishing I was with you over there.
For I know you will have a lot of Easter treats,
Oh, how I love Easter Sweets!
It's Easter Sunday and I'm missing you,
I'm sitting here wondering what to do.
I guess the Easter Rabbit went your way,
And with the candy he left he made your day.
So have a Happy Easter , my little princess,
Know that I will always love you best.
Enjoy the Easter Egg Hunt and your cookies, too,
Happy Easter, Ciarra, I love you.
From Grandma Brenda with all my love.

THE VIEW FROM OUTSIDE
I look around and all I see is the dying dawn,
I feel that there must be more than this but…
I guess it is like cutting the lawn,
And I wonder, is this just my luck?
Everything seems barren and bare,
I can feel the pain in every movement I make,
And like a child I think- Life isn’t fair.
And I wonder, are you really nothing but a fake?
For years you said you were my friend
And I believed it to be true,
But now as the Chapter comes to an end,
I believe there is more in what you do.
Life will always have ups and downs,,
And there is no running from that,
But now it’s time I hold my grounds,
You know what, I smell a rat!
I’m looking in from outside,
And I see you working on my case,
It is sad that we came to this,
But this is the pattern of the Human Race.

The last time I checked I was free,
The last time I checked I was me.
The last time I checked you were on my case,
The last time I checked I thought: “What A waste!”
Now I am on the go,
You have started something, you know.
And very soon you will see,
What it is like to mess with me.
You thought you could have your say,
That every day would be your day,
But I guess you will soon see you were wrong,
Now you will see how I have become strong.
I got tired of your attitude a long time ago,
Who do you think you are, Mrs. So-and-So?
I grew up fighting with people like you,
Now sit back and watch what I will do.

A CALL TO ARMS
The unexpected has finally come to past. The day when someone will look me in the face and say on of my blogs is an abuse of my position. People, the last time I checked I lived in a free society in a free world and I was allowed freedom by the blogspot on the internet to voice my opinions and to try to help others to learn. I pray the readers out there will see what I am saying and tell me if there has been anything on these blogs of mine that has misled anyone. I am a teacher by profession and director of the school in which I teach and one I am ashamed of my profession at the moment. You will ask why I am ashamed. My answer is because if a colleague can look me in the face and write on paper that I am abusing my position with the use of these or any of my blogs or website when all I set out to do was to help my students and to give some colour to their little Corozal Town lives, then there is something wrong with the educational system in which I live. Either it will have to go or I will.
This is the why wars begin. People misunderstand things because they are told a lot of rubbish and ideas are pushed into their already packed brain. I urge each and everyone to stop and think before they listen to others. Ask yourself why is this person doing this and what is the hidden agenda? People do things for different reasons. Think. Why would someone who is supposed to be a friend or was a friend at one time, of another person, suddenly turn on him or her?
I will tell you right now if I am told that this entry was wrong to write there will be a lot of changes in Belize very soon. My democratic right as a citizen in a free country must never be taken for granted. I may be a lot of things to different people, but I am a caring, honest teacher and Director. I fight for the right to learn and to have choices that will assist students to become strong men and women of Belize. It was my hope that one day someone out there would see these blogs and want to assist the school or students. THAT WAS MY HOPE. IT IS STILL MY HOPE AND I WILL TRY MY BEST TO SEE SOMETHING POSTIVE IN REGARDS TO THE BLOGS so they are not WRITTEN IN VAIN.
If you asked me why I began the blogs I would have to honestly say because Mr. Abel Lopez Rodriquez showed me how to do them. Abel is a person who sees the good in everything and everyone. I have had to tell him more than once that there are people who are around who are dangerous, conniving and just plain mean. All that sea breeze must be getting to the brain and causing a deficiency called “deception”. Trust me there will be no forgiving from now on.
Write me at http://cccandcjc-ace.blogspot.com and visit my website http://brendaysaguirre.galeon.com and tell me if I am abusing my connections with my school. I am calling on all bloggers to give me a hand on this. Give me the ammunition I need to fight back to save my blogs and myself. Today it is me, but tomorrow it can be YOU.

You came into my life for a reason, no doubt,
Monday, March 3, 2008
Whether they be friend or FOE.
Listen to what they SAY,
Just make the right choice every DAY.
The WORLD IS IN YOUR HAND,
It’s time you had a PLAN.
It’s time to come ALIVE,
Just SPLUNGE IN, TAKE A DIVE!
REMEMBER, YOU’VE GOT THE WORLD IN YOUR HAND,
You are the great Belizean WOMAN,
You can get things done RIGHT,
You’ve just got to want it, give it a Positive FIGHT!
