We Will Not Be Silenced


We were given hope
That peace would stand
With dignity & respect
We made our choice
But EC denied us
Now we are fighting
For our country
For all the rights
Being taken away
For the Earth
For our children’s future
We will not be silenced
Our voices will be heard

Tired


I am so very tired. I cannot seem to gain strength and rest. When I sleep I wake every couple of hours with tears on my cheeks, dread in my heart and the pit of my stomach. I am lost and I know that only I can find myself and fix whatever is wrong (oh my gosh I sound like that insane president). I have been a whiner, cryer and all around victim since my daughter was killed six years ago.  My husbands health issues, my own issues my grandsons suicide, just so much strife with my daughters and the rest of the family. I am tired. I am an educated woman, I was homeless with my three children at one time working for $25.00 cash daily, living n an old car, we climbed out of that and grew, so why can I not find that strength now? I want so badly to be happy and enthusiastic about life again. I haven’t wanted to write because I knew it would just be my bitch session, my self-pity party but I am also thinking if I do this maybe I can shame myself into pulling myself up by bootstraps an do something. Who knows if it will work but I have to try.

When Someone You Love Dies


When someone you love dies, and it is not something you expected it is a shock to your whole system. It is not easy to describe to anyone how terrible the pain is in the time afterward how absolute it is, how it is like a cell inside your body a cancerous cell that creeps and slithers and grows threading itself through every inch of your body ripping and shredding you inside.
Grief destroys not just you but the relationships you have with others. You dwell on the relationship you had with the one that died, your mind walks through all the days filled with the events you shared.  The long phone calls, the meals you prepared together, the
laughter and the tears you shared, the holidays and yes even the arguments, you are consumed by the memories. And the relationships you have with others? They disintegrate, not because you don’t share the pain of loss but because you do, each one is shredded inside and the hurt blinds one from the other until they lash out with all that pain and it is released by shouts and hurtful knife slashing words, and they leave you. Then you find yourself alone and crying and hurting feeling that cancerous cell slithering and growing inside consuming your mind, your body, and your soul.
Now you are alone with your memories scared, crying, screaming. The days pass, the nights both short or long depending on where your mind has wandered. During the day you are able to keep busy with your work or watching tv or reading, but one word a look or a glance of someone with the same stature, hair color style or their profile reminds you and that knife rips your gut and heart causing you to fall apart dropping to your knees clutching your chest or stomach trying to hold in the screams.
Time passes then one day without realizing it the emptiness begins to fill up, each day fewer tears fall, the wrenching pain subsides. The days and nights pass, each one counted, wondering how much more must you endure before you join the loved one that left you alone with nothing but the memories and the love, the love that you have for someone that dies.

Last Day


Every morning I wake up and look in the mirror
put on a mask,
the one that says to the world “here I am all shiny and bright”
Hiding the fact I lie in my bed at night weeping
I close my eyes to rest and pictures of you flash through my mind
If only I knew it was your last day
The pain just won’t go away, it eats at me day and night
Everyone believes I am strong and have dealt with it all
But no one knows…no one knows… the pain

Sunday Night


Sunday night my kind hearted, gentle 25-year-old grandson suffering mental anguish over the horrible things that happened in his life most significantly the loss of his mother, my daughter five years ago in Feb. took his own life by stepping in front of a vehicle traveling the Interstate at 70 miles per hour.
We are all so devastated and at a loss right now, in shock and disbelief.
He is now with his momma and at peace …finally, although we here on earth are stumbling like drunks through the days and nights.
