    My Thoughts

    Well now 51, I look back over my life and say, what the hell happened.  This is not how I wanted it to go.  Now, I am learning to understand me.  Going back to square one before all the sh*t happened.  I am excited about my future, working hard at having a...

    One doesnt need to be prepared

    for living life. Life is too simple and beautiful for that. But, when we go about living our lives that way many challenges in the form of negative situations and people are thrown in our way. It happened to me few years ago. I was unprepared for that and it rocked my world. I...

    You might go where ever you want

    but your strings are tied to my mind. I try to heal but a harmless thought manages to refresh my wounds. My heart dismisses all my persuasions and rebels against me. I tried to uproot you from me but my heart threatens to tag along. My mistakes, standing at a corner, look at me...
