Light & Shadows

Some days I look in the mirror and the image I see staring back at me is not the same image that everyone else sees.

They see smiles and sunshine. I see pain and stormy nights. Which of these is the true me? The one who feeds off the sunshine growing stronger? Or the one that the dark shadows creep slowly towards with night’s dawn snaking fingers reaching to ensnare me?

Tears feed the nightmare.

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
