    Life is full of ups and downs,

    many things I remember, some happy, some sad. Many things I can say been there, done that about, some with pride, some with remorse. Yet, I have lived all these years, laughed and cried, but arrived at 60 mostly in one piece, still standing. It seems in the course of existence...

    Debts Owed

    I have been paying, everyday, for a debt I never made. I have been on the ground my whole life, the pain and shame cut me like a knife. I come from a long line of strong women and that helped me to survive. I am so tired of crying, seems like I have cried my whole life, but...

    In Denial

    He married me when I was

    so young. Why did he become so cruel? Rarely touching me, anger dominated, harsh words abound. I never really understood. Confused and frustrated, I kept quiet and lived in fear. Always, I took great care of myself, dressed up for him, all to no avail. I was invisible. Still...

    And when you feel vulnerable

    and a little scraped... Remember it happens to us all but we have to keep our minds high, our thoughts positive and our attitudes beautiful So we can later feel the great benefits of purely being great and precious all in one.
