Within #poem

A pawn in this game, We’re played and we’re slaughtered. Our energy flows, And by most we’re only bothered. Competition too thick, Our humanity gets chipped, We let ourselves drown, At the crack of a whip. But what if there’s more? If it’s hidden inside us. Yet to be tapped into, But, ohhhh when we…

Because Encouragement SHOULD Be Personal!

A message from my daughter and I today: To focus on a better 2019 doesn’t mean more makeup and less food. It doesnt mean more filter apps, more ‘friends’, and more parties. It doesnt mean more debt to look good, or keeping up with the neighbors. Strip all that crap away, take what’s left —…

To Love The Journey #poem

Writing Progress in the Fall

I have some very exciting news, that I’ve kind of been waiting to announce! There is so much going on right now, progress made, changes taking place, bookish goodness in the works, I honestly don’t know where to start! Usually when I’m between projects I loose my mind a little (Binge Everything… Even Writing)… Okay,…

Be The Tree #poem

Warped are the roots, yet tall’s the old tree, What hides beneath the surface is strength, you see. Stronger with age, finds growth through the muck, The path of each finger searching sustenance, not luck. It either moves or it crushes some rocks in their way, Or it tunnels around, finds other places to stay….
