Don’t tell me to get over it!

Don’t tell me to get over it

Until you’ve loved

With every bits and pieces

Of your soul

Until you’ve scraped up

Your dignity off the ground

And walked away

Leaving your heart

In the walls

And the floors

In the silence

And the promises

That were shattered

Yes

I’m in a better place

But don’t tell me to get over it

Until you’ve walked the walk

Of a desperate wife©️

Your Story of Bravery

You are strong and brave; your best life is right now. Live it without restriction, let go of everything that no longer serves you or bring you joy. This is your moment, your time to live above the mediocrity, to step outside the box that held you down. No matter the age, the circumstances, the abuse, the scars, make the decision to live the rest of your life worthy, filled with joy and peace. Yes troubles will come; some days will be rough, but you will be ready to fight. This is your legacy your story of bravery.

…….the awakening

The Missing Face

The pain landed in her bones, a forever ache looking out from the wreckage of a fractured soul. What was meant to be a celebration has transformed into a gravestone. She walked the streets searching for signs of the gift she once held in her womb.

Fragmented

dandelion-4144858_960_720

 

She wanted more than hollow words and pretty smiles, she wanted the darkness that lived in her mother’s eyes to touched her. She wanted to understand how someone so fragile could carry so much pain tucked away beneath her rib cage. All the damaged years, every lonely nights tells the same story.

She found a way to shine through the pieces of her fragmented soul.
