Shimmer Of Hope

There are certain moments in a person's life that they can remember what they were doing on an exact day. August 6, 2016, which was one year ago today, is one of those times for me. It was the last time I've seen and hugged my 'wasbund'. I don't want to call him an 'ex-husband' … Continue reading Shimmer Of Hope

My Looking Glass

Though my eyes need glasses to help me see, To take in all of the beauty of the world - They also allow me to see the horrors and pain, The price of hate and violence unfurled.   We are so much better than agony and killing. We are human beings, our lives already fleeting … Continue reading My Looking Glass

True Face

A person can spend half of their life To find out exactly who they are. The inner conflict, filled with strife, Admiring others from afar.   In the search to find themselves, So many personas enter the mix. Slowly, beginning to lose ourselves - Desperately wanting a quick fix.   Then, we begin to wear … Continue reading True Face

Coping With Betrayal

  It sucks beyond words when you get fooled.   Two times I can remember where I thought someone actually wanted to be my friend but didn't really wasn't all that pleasant. Especially when you once trusted someone so deeply. It makes the pain a bit harder to deal with and to understand. A long … Continue reading Coping With Betrayal

Icy Touch

Icy Touch Broken heart and clenched fists Not a stranger to agony's stinging kiss. Somehow, still not prepared for this - Thirst for vengeance, so hard to dismiss.   Death's icy touch grazes yet again Never relenting… never showing mercy. Human flaws, consequences inhumane, The end came too quick for his journey.   Neither old age … Continue reading Icy Touch

I’m an INFP on the Meyers-Brigg Personality Chart

INFP. Introverted. Intuitive. Feeling. Perceiving. A personality test has narrowed me down into a group of people with these characteristics. If you want to pinpoint and classify me into a group and this has to be it, then I can live with it. I have been for a very long time. As an introvert, I … Continue reading I’m an INFP on the Meyers-Brigg Personality Chart
