Lost Wings


I’ve lost my wings.

I can’t get home.

Someone drew these on the cold concrete.

Hoping they would be of help
to me on my journey.

My wings were never
this nice and strong.

They were battered and torn
as I was before I was gone!

Trick or Treat


Tonight is month end at work, so
that means a late night to get
everything done.

Friday is inventory  <shudders> and will probably
still be doing on Saturday.

How sad is it that you are actually looking
forward to Monday the 6th.

Hope you have a safe evening!

Rest Little Angel


Rest Little Angel
The demons and predators were
waging chaos full force trying
to catch us off guard by joining forces tonight.

But they showed us a weakness that
we’ll use to our advantage the next time.
You had to draw blood tonight that scars
your soul for some time or always in some cases.
I know this literally!

Rest Little Angel
The battle will soon start again!

Sitting watching where have been
disappearing from my sight.
Wondering where I am heading
back to, is still so right.
My mind is full of images
of things left undone.
My heart and soul are
still where I had been
because it had felt like
I was HOME!

#58. Low Self-esteem? Meet Yourself.

Great advise!! I can so relate, I tired to be what those around me wanted me to be. I didn’t want to embarrass family more, that I wasn’t successful, looked liked those they compared me too. I also wanted them to see how very important my writing was to my soul. Maybe I would’t be the next JD Robb, but I going to be the best damn ME I can!
I still struggle with self-esteem, but the climb is a little less
defeating with every step.

The Gentle Storm

I’ve struggled with low self-esteem for as long as I can remember. Being a highly sensitive person, the taunts of bullies have hurt me more than they should have.

Very rarely have I been happy with the person I am. But over the past year I have tried to change that. I have learnt to love myself and be proud of who I am. I still struggle to be happy with myself on most days, and I do need to remind myself many a time that I do not have to always be so self-critical .

This TED talk reminded me about how important it is to be proud of who we are.

Niko Everett really gives amazing advice about jotting down things we are proud of about ourselves. That exercise really helps increase one’s confidence.

I Can!!!!


I can do this
I’m stronger then they
give me credit
I will not show weakness
They think they have won
I might be trembling inside
But I’m rock solid outside

I can do this
Take a deep breath
and walk in that room
I wait for recognition to take hold.
Look them all in the eye
and say No I Didn’t DIE!!!
