Bleak Moments

Bleak moments
bleeding together
becoming a black landscape
of broken shadows and torment.
A pathway breaks before
each turn covered with thorns
heartache and pain
as I crawl forward
desirous of change,
of a chance at life again.
For so long
doubt,
anguish,
pain,
and anger,
have been the building blocks
of my life.
I want to replace them,
I want to change them to
belief,
optimism,
contentment
and love.
I want to rescue
that tiny little me
hidden in the corner of my soul,
the one who use to have grand dreams
but has become a ghost in
this life.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
