“Your self-esteem won’t come from body parts. You need to step away from the mirror every once in a while, and look for another reflection, like the one in the eyes of the people who love you and admire you.” – Stacy London

Positive Self Reflection

My skin is made of ivory,

My lips, soft pink rose petals,

My hair is free like the wind,

That blows through it,

My eyes are as blue as the sky,

My soul is as deep as the ocean,

My heart beats to music,

My language is anything,

But ordinary prose.

The Decision

Love me, hate me,

You’re part of what created me,

Care or stare,

I reflect a love you used to share,

Ready or not here I am,

Do or don’t you give a damn.

“The principle part of faith is patience.”- George MacDonald

Little Girl

These feelings have not changed,

Time has done nothing to ease,

The pain,

It is a mere pastime,

Attempting to fill a void,

Unsuccessfully,

At the end of the day,

I am just a little girl,

That wants her Mom.

“Sometimes you have to sacrifice your performance for high heels.” -Gwen Stefani

High Heels

I walk slowly downstairs,

Holding close to the railing,

I meet up with her,

As she quickly signs the card,

We leave earlier,

So we won’t be late,

In case we get lost,

I tell her I made the wrong,

Shoe choice for today,

She laughs and she says,

She knew she shouldn’t have,

Worn high heels either,

But, she loves heels,

As we continue down the,

Highway,

To an outdoor wedding.

“When you finally go back to your old home, you find it wasn’t the old home you missed but your childhood.”- Sam Ewing

Seasons of My Childhood

In winter, The snow fell,

Isolated, Imaginative solitude,

I found Independence,

In spring, The flowers bloomed,

Exploring, Never-ending curiosity,

I found adventure,

In summer, The sun shined,

Racing, Water-filled amusement,

I found friendship,

In fall, The leaves began to change,

Celebration, Laughter and love,

I found myself growing older.

“Insomnia is a gross feeder. It will nourish itself on any kind of thinking, including thinking about not thinking.”- Clifton Fadiman

Insomnia

Lights off,

Mind on,

Door shut,

Eyes open,

Calm outside,

Insanity inside,

Silent thoughts,

Sleepless nights.
