Pay the Piper

Terror,
dark and all consuming
roils up from the ground
chaining me,
staking me in place.
Unable to move forward
not because
I am lame
but because
I do not know how.
For so long
the stresses
the emotions
have been blunted
and ignored.
Now it is time to pay the piper
and I am so afraid.

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
