the tragedy is not trying

not taking that first step

the fear you feel inside you

that overwhelming yelling yelp

the little voice that tells you

no you will not win succeed

the tiny angst you feel pounding

when allowing dark thunder feels

the misstep stolen soul bruised

hiccup passed you by sneeze too

the nagging insecurity back of your mind

that eats you up inside time after time

the pain you feel so deeply

others that turn and walk away

the learning asking why why

not in time seems to be the cry some days

the all that makes that wall tower

feel as if you can not climb too tall

the not seeing believing what’s there

signs paths only to be thrown aside

the leaving those blinders on

allowing you to see only one path

the self deprecating comments

flailing your back breaking breast

the whispers and the taunting

jibes ignored happy pretend happy refrain

the souls who try to stop bring dark

cause harm or simply laughable duress

the all this mentioned and some missed

only to realize the tragedy is this



where i grew up, if you did not try to get out would not be here now or be in a less than savory place .. i succeed because i SEE it ..i BELIEVE it .. my belief’s are that our minds are able to can i say .. if you SEE the signs .. then you KNOW WHAT TO DO .. if that makes sense ..  I always watch for signs .. they are everywhere .. lol you all do not have to believe what i believe .. i am ok with that .. but you see ..i believe beyond a shadow of a doubt .. <3 LOVE AND LIGHT TO U ALL ..

I am a Poet it seems. But I am many things this is just a small part of who I am. I write *Love Ballads* and *Erotic* prose. This is my little world you see. My passions are *Art* *Music* *Poetry* *Health & Fitness* *Outdoor Activities* *Fashion* *Costuming* ..etc etc. I am a Leo except the part about being in the spotlight *whispers* my preference is home by a fire. I have many belief’s; like signs, patterns, numbers, colors, everything has an energy you see. All things!! To me anyway. That interaction we experience is a kind of sending and receiving of vibrations to me. The cliche’ ..DARK TO LIGHT applies. We are all connected and share *a something* which can not be defined nor understood in our current state of development. So within my limited brain capacity that is what i have chosen to believe in its barest form. But i follow my instincts and try to be a better human. If you ever met me, well I have been told I leave a lasting impression. May the Verse Be with You. ≧◠◡◠≦✌
