Rising Above



I can't.

I won't.

will never.

give up.

refusing to be the victim.

rising above,
nonsensical verbiage
actions

saddened only by,
your sadistic eyes.

  8. Oh Kay, we will be married in Tampa. I am still in awe that he does all whyt is needed to change. Never thought this possible, had suffered so much yet I learned a lot. What I do wonder is why I am better, more expressive, more into finding the right words to go along my emotions - better in writing poems when I am in deep pain!

    unless...
    we change our environment


    so all is not dark and gloomy

  13. I've just read your last five posts, and I love your style. And I like what you said about wanting to explain what it means, yet leaving it to us. I'm doing that more and more as I'm exploring more poetry lately than short stories. I want to thank you for following at Life is Good. I'm following you, too.

  14. Hello Kay
    it is nice to met you.

    Empathy is a powerful attribute...so much stronger than sympathy...

    happy days
