"Rising from the Ashes"




An excerpt from my first piece entitled:

"Be Proud of Who You Are"


So World, what do you see when you look in the mirror?

A fat person?

Someone who's ugly?

A person who is unworthy of love?

Well I see me.   An individual who is simply unique.




I am hoping to use this Blog to share my life experiences, through poetry and prose.  I want to give confidence to those in a similar situation, to be able to reach out and seek help.  Everyone is deserving of support, no matter what others say or how low and worthless you may feel.



Below is an excerpt from one of my poem's entitled

"Complex Post Traumatic Disorder"

You crawled aimlessly into my life when I didn't want, or need you,

I was young and welcomed you with open arms, thinking you were a friend,

How was I to know, the extensive damage you would cause?


Like a spider, you spun a web of lies, made me believe I was unworthy,

Low self-esteem and confidence, vulnerable beyond compare.

You sat there laughing my nameless friend!


You claw at my senses, yet I'll never let you win.


You are nothing and I am all.
