The pine box!

Rhythm In Life

shaft-2086978_1920Mama was laid in one;

I remember like it was yesterday

A lifeless “pose”of her shell

Auntie, grandpa and grandma did too

“They” left in that pine box;

The box that claimed to be the “hero”

carrying the “shells” once pampered

Shells of my heroes

Shells of my memories

Shells that loved me

Shells that nurtured me

Shells of the strong and brave

I know that I hate it!

That pine box…

But, I know I have mine somewhere

To carry my shell

Not my soul

“Audacity of Her” – Poetry Release

Rhythm In Life

For the last couple of months y’all have been reading my posts on abuse. I have hoped that pouring out my heart would help encourage others towards healing as well as create awareness for those that can protect helpless children who continue to be vulnerable at the hands of molesters.

There has been pain beneath this smile

There has been a child beneath this woman

There are scars beneath this glitter

There’s a human

There’s a wife

There’s a mother

There’s a friend

Beneath this face

There’s forgiveness

There’s Faith

There’s hope

Beyond myself

Audacity of her is a very simple collection of abuse related poetry some of which have been published on the blog but most have not. It’s nothing fancy and it’s self-published with help from my husband. I have it listed as an EBOOK on blurb in the link below.
