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!!!

I Stand


! stand with my eyes closed
so that I can’t see the sorrow and pity
in their faces.
They think I am silent because I’m fighting
the inner turmoil of now being a widow.
Everyone leaves and goes on with their days.
I am left standing alone.
It is not a foreign emotion for me
thou many wouldn’t know this.
A million thoughts run through my mind.
I finally open my eyes and look down.
The secret is forever sealed in your urn
buried in this fresh dirt beneath my feet.
I am the ONE now standing!

Whispers in the hall


I hear them, whispering outside my door
should we check on her?
No- she needs to deal with this
her own way, you heard her!
Yeah, but what if she needs something,
she knows where we are, Come on.
I heard footsteps shuffling down the hall
and a door shuts.

How am I to deal with this,
I curl myself into the tightest ball and
try to shut the world out.
As the lyrics of us, lay scattered
among emotions on my bedroom floor.

No one will heard the magic we made ever again.

Good Night


Good Night
my friend
we’ve gotten through another battle.

Good Night
my friend
you are safe for now.

Good Night
my friend
you are not the enemy or a monster
people just don’t understand.

Good Night
my friend
let me kiss your head and show
thou we are from different worlds
we want the same thing.

Good Night
my friend
