Freedom Found

Cold shadows
undulate down the wall
making me cower.
I shrink down
pull my knees close
head tucked in
hoping I will be unsighted
glanced over
ghost that I am.
drowning when all come near
ravens fly
calling my name
subduing chilling screams.
plummeting to my
sudden wings explode
feeling warmth….
Ice melts
water flows
freedom has been found
with belief of myself.

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

  1. Amazing photo! Was that shot by you? Just curious. Also, very deep piece. I personally found it had a dark and hopeless undertone in the beginning, which runs opposite, it seems, against the beauty of the picture. But then I continued reading and realized it’s brilliance: the breakaway from helplessness. Love it!
