Weeping Willow

Lessons never hurt so good. Make me grow as a woman as I knew they would. Teach me what I need to know. Help me find the courage I needed to grow. Sometimes, I cry like a weeping willow. Tears fall in my pillow, I try hard not to let them go. Too much pride,…

Confessions Part 1 (The Realization)

I love money. There I said it. I love the finer things, exotic even. I have a need for speed, although there are those in need, my hunger bleeds for more. Penthouse style lofts, the finest wine, double time, yeah that’s me. I tried the whole minimalist thing, it worked, I woke, I gave, I…

There is an internal battle taking place within my body’s fortress. I can feel the tension in my hands. The knots in my stomach. Stress is striving for victory. Unbeknownst to me,…

My Psalm

My call echoed over the mountaintop into the valley and then, I heard a voice speak to me. It spoke not with words but with calm. The joy that came over me allowed me to walk on water and depart the troubled seas I’d been tasked to maneuver through. It reassured me that I was…

Total recall

Left foot, right foot, I begin to trace my steps. Attempting to recall my thoughts however vague. I’m lost in a moment I cannot change. Regretful yet thankful. Fearful yet excited. Worried yet in the still of the calm. I embrace the lesson. For I was led down this path to embrace not reject, to…
