Soar the Dawn

lost upon a plain
a mountain
a chasm
cumbersome load
upon my shoulders
to lay it down
relieve myself of this burden
carried through time
through years
an albatross
I thought.
to wrist
to waist
to ankle
never to be free.
beneath a mask of fear
catacombs of anger
deadly desires.
Golden rays
break beyond horizon
throw away
remnants of past
from neglect
from dusty shelves
the truth
of my inner self.

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
