The Deep Unknown

I know I am  
a deep thinker  
and I feel 
things deeply 
it will take  
one strong
secure man 
to explore 
my oceans 
and not drown
in them

Epic Quotes From Bishop Fulton Sheen

~ The best friends are those who know how to keep the same silences.

~ This is the choice before us: either try to revolutionize the world and break under it or revolutionize ourselves and remake the world.

~ To pass from sadness to joy requires birth, a moment of travail and labor, for no one ever mounts to a higher level of life without death to the lower.

~ To do God's will until death, that is the inner heart of all holiness.

~ A smile is laughter's whisper and has its roots in the soul.

~ Moral principles do not depend on a majority vote. Wrong is wrong, even if everybody is wrong. Right is right, even if nobody is right.

~ God does not love us because we are valuable. We are valuable because God loves us.

~ If you do not worship God, you worship something, and nine times out of ten it will be yourself. You have a duty to worship God, not because He will be imperfect and unhappy if you do not, but because you will be imperfect and unhappy.

~ If you do not live what you believe, you will end up believing what you live.

~ Prayer begins by talking to God, but it ends by listening to Him. In the face of Absolute Truth, silence is the soul's language.

~ Satan has very little trouble with those who do not believe in him; they are already on his side.

The Division of Assets

he told me 
to go find  
my own friends 
I didn't know 
friends were 
one of the assets 
that gets divided  
when you divorce 
but apparently
they are  
he claimed all but two

Raising the Bar

you gave 
to her soul
you gave 
her a reason
to demand 
more from others

Shallow Apologies

you apologized
so often
that the words
"i love you"
were no longer
they actually
were a form
of abuse
because you 
continued your
bad behavior
and expected
me to love
you regardless
of the fact
your actions 
wounded me

Finding the Right One

I know I've  
dated all 
the wrong men 
formed relationships 
with men who  
didn't deserve me 
I know now 
that the right  
man is out there  
and I will recognize him 
because all the wrong ones  
gave me all
the warning signs
of what to look out for

My Dream: The Unseen Roots

From Journal Entry 8/5/2018

   There is a healthy tree with beautiful blooms of white, yellow, and pink. Dawn is breaking. I point to the tree.

   The tree is associated with my life. The roots are my spiritual foundation. The trunk and branches are elements of my existence. They represent what I have developed in my life, the different avenues I have explored, and the connections I have made with others. The flowers are my fruition. White represents purity, innocence, new awareness, new beginnings, happiness, clarity. Yellow is the color of light, hope, encouragement, joy, optimism, warmth, and honesty. Pink represents motivation, ambition, love, kindness, compassion, softness, and the healing powers of love or friendship.
   God grows the tree because my life is rooted in Him. The unseen roots, my inner life with God, produces visible fruition. Me pointing at the tree is my need to pay more attention to what is being brought forth from within me. Dawn means new beginnings and new hope. I am being reminded that this is a new beginning for me at this time in my life and to remain in the spirit of hope. "Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the foundation for your life. Be strong in your faith, just as you were taught. And be grateful." Colossians 2:7

Healing Through Writing

I've carried 
so much 
heartache and pain
in my body 
over the years
that my body nearly
shut down on me
it wasn't until 
I cried out for peace
and declared truce
with myself
that I began to heal 
I just had to agree 
not to remain silent 
about it

Coming Into Your Power

she knows what   
she deserves  
she will make war  
with anyone that  
stands in her way  
this she learned the hard way:  
being cheated on, lied to, and stolen from  
her wounds 
made her stronger 
but it was her enemies  
that made her a warrior
