My Essence

Redux

I Write Her

The majesty of my ethereal being is within
gifting me an enlightened puissance.

I am perspicacious.

I’m those things that matter
to myself, my family, my community, and my world.

It’s not fleeting.
I remain who I am in the face of darkness and doubt.

This caring, this is me.

This strength, I share with you
as we all march on.

Redux

I Write Her

Untitled

“Men are every bit as sneaky and calculating and venomous as women are widely suspected to be.”  Lili Loofbourow

“Did I do that? OH! I’m sorry, that was not my intention.”

“Ugh, I suck. Can you forgive me? “

Eyes of innocence before me for the 1000th time.

Him being purposefully confused to purposefully confuse me.
Slick like oil.

An engineered game well-played to my detriment.

I am maneuvered purposefully, skillfully.
Me still loving, trusting and believing.

Directed by his intention I question myself.
My judgment is slipping.

Damn it.

For the last time.

My Self Evolving

Inspired by Reena’s Exploration Challenge #170 & Eugenia’s Weekly Prompt – Journey

my life, this winding and criss cross journey
enduring the setbacks nature often offers
forces an accounting of my true self’s mission

while i critiquely reflect within my soul
the revelation – the person i see in the mirror is not me
it hurts that i’ve lived with this stranger for so long

i vow

no more continuing to plod along how others want me
i’ll take the reins now to forge paths more to my liking
my destiny means claiming my glory and being wholly present

A fleeting moment
A glimpse of disapproval
veiled in silence
stayed with me
long after 
you’d forgotten all about it…


Today
I decide to move ahead
shaking you and your views
out of my system


you do not exist for me
as much as
I do not exist for you

Reblog – Identity by Sadje

The form, the message – it’s all good! Enjoy this piece by Sadje! 🙂 Inspired by Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Identity” July 13, 2020

Your Weekly Prompt – Identity – July 13, 2020

~*~

I

Am me

No one can be me

It is my unique identity

I was gifted with it when I was born

I will keep this identity till the day I die

In between this time, I can develop, hone and refine it

I can make it better or just exist in what I started with

It can be work in progress or it could be a finished product

It has to be my choice what I want my identity to be

You know me by my identity

I am the only one

That is me!

Reblog – The Girl with the Key by Dorinda Duclos

This piece can take you in many directions, but for me, it resonates that this is a story of a woman who is in control of her life. What does it say to you?

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos


Cloaked in red, she stands in prayer
What lurks behind, she is unaware

Within her hands she holds the key
To unlock this forest’s mystery

But she is the only one to know
Will never let these secrets go

Though another lies in wait
For that perfect moment, unlock the fate

Of all who dwell within these woods
To release the forest’s ghostly goods

At last she senses, this maiden fair
Of who he is, she best beware

As he creeps closer, where she stands
And reaches out his unearthly hands

In hopes he can retrieve this key
Believes it belongs to only he

One more step, he is oh so near
And just like that, she disappears

Never able to uncover the mystery
It is locked away, the key, with she.
