I Want A Refund

No deposit and no returns

I can’t believe how life burns

Chews me up and spits me out

Of its intentions I have little doubt

It makes me suffer and wants my soul

Leaving me to feel like I have no control

Still I’m caught up in what is the game of life

And it is forever and ever going to cause me strife

But what is easy has so very few forms of worth

So as long as I am allowed to be here on earth

I am choosing to live each and every minute

Like I am existing in life’s game to win it

One foot in front of the other every day

It’s beautifully molding me like clay

My hopes and dreams I will revive

Repaying me so that I can thrive

Pursuing Self

woman-1539416_640

Women are a mystical creature. One that men have a very difficult time figuring out, quite often. To be a woman takes much patience and fortitude. We are the glue that often holds things together, yet we can be as fragile as a porcelain doll. We have hearts that are easily broken by life and souls that are easily turned cold. Abused and battered internally, we still must go forward- having in mind only those that rely so heavily upon our being strong.

How do we care for ourselves when it feels as though our insides are attempting to tear us in two? This is the great mystery that I have yet to discover, but here I am holding it together. I’m still standing, still pursuing dreams and passions. I refuse to let myself come apart! I refuse to let life have the victory over my being. Tapping into the reserves that life has yet to siphon from me, I will continue on, in pursuit of answers to this journey’s destination.© ~Mac
