Blue Maze from Google images

somewhere between 
a conversation
and realization
the blue maze
took her happy place

finding her way back
is elusive
because motivation
left too

there is a price to pay
for sensitivity
gather yourself...

how can she
when no one
is there?

take the path
of self-ness
permission granted
to be first for a change...

don't allow the cold hard truth
to lock it deep inside
seek the center
germinate from within

bring forth the light
make it a priority
ignore all else

time is running out


 what is
most important
more meaningful
most valuable

be brave...
 find it


we all shrink away
from cruel words spoken
by those who "love us"
regardless of the truth
we die a little each time...

even worse
when we slap
our own faces
and slam the door
on our own lives...

we smack into walls
get lost at every turn
have no sense of direction
and sit and cry in the dark

it is the maze of life
what else is new?
good times
bad times
it's all part of the flow...

What powerful words, Donna. "how can she
share when no one is there?" reminded me of the years I spent as a widow. Without God I would have been hopelessly alone. God bless you.
