Redefine Me…

Souldier Girl

My God my God!

Move me-
Beyond this pain that endlessly cycles
Through me-
Beyond this tiny room
Reveal me-
Within the pages and pages
I’ve torn from my soul
My mental occupation
Leaving only time for false roles
A false hope-
Wrapping everything up to open behind one door-
My dreams have shifted to unrequited goals-
The fairytales have gone too far-
Losing the bargain to fools gold-
But my worth in Jesus still sparks a jolt!
I look to you God… to fix these pieces-
I look to you… to guide my indecision-
I can be so naive at the mercy of… others consequences-
Their own guilt becomes… my premonition-
Walking in the shadows of their… shifting disposition-
While my own life… is found missing!
I will sit alone with God and let Him do the fixing-
No other hands will spread… my veins with their poison-

Really glad they gave me some points for spelling my name correctly, LOL.

After a year and a half of junior college I won an Air Force scholarship to TCU to become a doctor. Six months in, the school didn’t close when we had a bad ice storm and I slipped…

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – William Shakespeare

Word Craft ~ Prose & Poetry

Welcome!  This is an open invitation to join in on my blogging event called, Writer’s Quote Wednesday.  This is your chance to highlight your favorite author’s quotes that give inspiration to you as a writer.

Do you feel like your writing is getting stale? Are you looking for inspiration to keep writing? Then you have come to right spot!

Let’s get more in-depth with the quotes and the author of the quote, by adding names of books, poetry, and music to the mix. Tell something about the author to engage us with the quote. A quote from a piece of music is just as inspiring as a quote that you read in a book.  You can provide images of music with the words, or a portion of a song with an image. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Be ready to participate with videos and words, photos, and any other…
