    Good Bye

    I'm in a prison of my own making for the past twenty-years, and the past can't be changed, but I won't imprison myself again to anyone or anything. Not to LOVE, nor DUTY, or OBLIGATION, or GUILT.  I won't throw more good years away....not even a day. I'm breaking these chains...

    Freedom

    Too many times I always get stuck in a muck. I have never truly expressed my freedom because of those attachments you have to be responsible for. Especially when it comes to my close friends and family. It can literally be toxic to my health, living to other people's...

    As I sit in my car at the border between Canada

    and the United-States. Waiting long minutes, sometimes hours, for my turn, to be checked by an angry guard with a gun, cameras in my face. As I wait there, watching birds cross the border freely, back and forth. Even insects are free to cross. I ask myself: "Why are the...

    All I Need

    There are very few things that I truly need in a relationship to be happy.... a little love, some compassion, some humor, a little sex, and the feeling that I am free to make choices within my relationship. If I have these things I stick around and I am loyal to a fault. If not...

    Squished Grapes Are Just One Big No-no

    I want to leave this house. Maybe even out of the country, hopefully. Because sometimes I feel like my family's destroying me. Sort of sucking all the energy and emotion away. I suppose I should feel guilty, but I don't. Almost funny, because I've been so good at hiding my...
