I remember the way the branches curled towards me that day, the way they swayed to and fro. It was something beautifully unexpected, a miracle of nature, a divine curiosity. And I remember standing there in wide-eyed awe, losing myself to the sheer loveliness, lost in a state of childlike wonder. Chills crept down my spine in delightful little bits, and goosebumps erupted as a plethora of tingling sensations washed over me from head to toe. But the thrill wasn’t meant to last, and after one breathless sigh I blinked, and the exquisite array vanished. That was when the heaviness began to gather at my feet, and an unforeseen darkness approached from a place I’d never been. As the winds altered their direction, everything changed. And the wondrous splendor of that unforgettable day is still nowhere to be found.
About to embark On a journey A new way of life I think this beginning Is just what I need I have nothing left here Nothing holding me back So I will chase my dreams The sky is the limit Look out world Here I come!
You seem different lately Resolved Like you won’t dare budge Because whatever it is That thing you’ve decided You’re now instead Resolute That’s exactly what you are And it’s interesting Because I thought you were doing Just fine You know – the way you were before Funny thing is You’d never admit You’ve changed That you’re anything different Than what you’ve always been But I see through All that nonsensical jibber jabber And you have changed I know it I see it Because I know you So believe it Or not Because I know you like to believe What you believe You seem different lately And you are
Who am I? Some say I’ve changed But have I? Or am I merely revealing Who I always was Maybe I’m just fed-up With people not understanding Perhaps I’m finally breaking free From always hiding the true me There seems to come a time When we can no longer be afraid To let others finally see Our true identity
There have been so many disappointments in my life over the past several years and I think a lot of those issues started with being on social media and the repercussions that came with being on there. I have mulled over this subject for months and months now and I have finally decided that the time has come for me to close all of my social media accounts. And as many of you have probably noticed, I haven’t been writing much in recent days. I just feel like I need to take a step back in many ways. I have so many other priorities right now and I feel like I need to be focusing my time in other areas of my life. If any of you need to contact me, I can still be reached by email which can be found if you click on my Gravatar. Thank you all for understanding, and I will still be providing the writing prompts every month and doing my best to keep up with all of that. Love you guys… ~M xo
