Quiet Rumination

Look hard
beneath the surface
see the truth
the reality
skull
wide eye orbs
gallows swinging
I am here
I stand before…..
No one.
Myself.
You.
Society.
All look
not a one will see
insisting I am fine
the cracks
the flaws
papered over with crimson fears.
Lost
broken
no longer afraid
sit
content
watching the waves
debris of my life
washed upon the shore
awaiting close review
introspection
long hard look
a new truth
my own…..
these radical thoughts
feelings
they are nothing new
only now my eyes are open
I can see clear.

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
