Unease

You listened to the lies it told you When you knew better You saw the truth but cowered back to the deception Battles won, when you were close to victory Feelings of loneliness and sadness All lies Unnecessary burdens you carried Thoughts that violated your beautiful mind Attacks that took a toll Relationships that faltered…

Wonder Woman

You have your days where you feel powerful, resilient and determined. Those days where nothing and no one can stop you from being as strong as you feel. The days where you look back on the cards you were dealt and wondered how you EVER made it through. The days where you didn’t always feel…

The Happy Helper (Anchored)

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ― Charles Dickens Every Thanksgiving I contribute a side dish or two to the family dinner.

R & R

Guilty as charged. I know how difficult it can be to plan a vacation, find a sitter (if you only want a grown up vacation)…

Don’t

Time Energy Manpower Emotions Factors that are contributed to relationships, jobs, people and society itself. Factors that aren’t given can potentially cause a downfall.
