Family Ties #5

Our trio,
wide eyed and
bushy tailed,
routines set
school
work
home
and
repeat
The first in ages
the feeling of
oneness
lingers but doesn’t
stick
An intimacy,
a much needed ingredient,
missing,
has me
keeping us
coloring within
the lines,
observing the rules,
noting inevitable
change,
readying for
a break

~These words are from my heart to yours. My thoughts spun to words. Be kind and respect them.~

FAMILY TIES #4

Coming out
about stuff hidden
for years
ain’t easy.
To share with a love
that the love is gone
or a parent
that the image
you’ve portrayed,
a fake!
To be real
to teach it and not
take it on for self…
A clean slate
A start over
A second chance
is all I need to know
to do right
to step up
to be real…
To be me…
Coming out,
ain’t nothing but
the 1st day
of being whole
and complete…
or is it?

~These words are from my heart to yours. My thoughts spun to words. Be kind and respect them.~

FAMILY TIES #1

tumbling in emotions
I feel lost
on a verge of change
I am a balancing act
between who I was
and who I want to be
Feeling love tug
to be that
which I need
that which I
want to shed
what was
to be authentic
in me
love and
compassionate
I take baby steps
taking it slow
but sure
knowing
my end game
is about building
up
not
breaking
love up
Not wanting to
leave a bad taste,
I take baby steps
wanting to heal
before I hurt
another
