Mumbles … Rue

Rue… regret.  I have no regret, but he might.  I am in a transition and will not be writing this weekend (which is why I am posting so much right now)  I might have some time to read but that remains to be seen.  Life is complicated and I need t simplify things for my own peace of mind.  I promise to come back next week… I need to write and will be doing so over the weekend too as usual.  I just won’t be at a place to post.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.  May you all find the peace you need without a lot of trouble in the way.  Thanks for sticking with me.

Time

Now is not the time to be meek

Find my backbone

Become the shark

Do all I can to be strong

I need my strength to face this day

Big plans on the horizon

Freedom is within my grasp

I just need to believe

Although this wont be easy

It Is what needs to be done

My peace of mind

And my basic happiness

Are on the line

No turning back now

The time has come

He was once kind

He used to care

Now life is cut apart

With blunt words

Harshly spoken

“You’re fat”

“You’re dumb”

“You’re lazy”

But I know my worth

I know my place

And it is no longer

Being with him

There are people

Who can help me

Places I can go

Freedom is calling

Faulty Feelings

Even love is not perfect

The emotion can be fallible

Two lovers try to be as one

But life can get in the way

Problems and stresses

Outsiders and haters

All chip away at the relationship

Until the two have lost their way

And nothing is left behind

Except tears and pain

Personally Crafted

She took the paper and trimmed it with her decorative edge scissors.  Grabbing her glue runner, she began to adhere the various levels of embellishments onto her card.  After stamping a couple of images on the inside of the card, she colored them in.  Now time to go to the other side.  She had a special stamp to put on the back of the card.  It was her “company” name (if only she had the money and determination to start that business) and she stamped it proudly.  Added her initials and today’s date and it was ready to be used.

Waiting For Freedom

Clandestine lovers meet in the dark

Embracing each other

Wishing for a chance at freedom

Tied to those who no longer care

A chance to rekindle an old flame

This meeting is not the first

Hopefully the next one

Can be more visible

To show each other they care

More than they thought they did

Timing was all wrong for them

But maybe the future will hold

A bit of happiness for both of them

Look Inside

Pull back the layers

See what is underneath

I have put on so many masks

I wonder who I even am now

**

Pull back the layers

Expose the truths

We have avoided so many issues

We probably need a fresh start

**

Pull back the layers

Reveal what is left

Is there even a reason to stay

Is there enough of us still

Always Here

“Mom I think I have narrowed my list down to three.”

“That is good, do you have your transcripts to send to all of them?”

“I do, I think.  I just don’t know how to narrow things down any further.”

“Honey, since the schools are all in state, we can take a couple of travel days and visit the colleges and see what they have to offer.”

“That sounds line a good plan.  Thanks for all your help on this mom.  I wouldn’t know where to turn.”

“No matter how old you get, I will always be here to help!”
