Shine Like a Diamond

I share this as a cautionary tale of how quickly life can change.

There is no safe, no stability. 

And yet, I have met amazing people who have become lifelong friends along the way. 

I was taught to live with less, yet appreciate more. 

I became a fighter; people said I was strong. 

Strong? 

I never thought of myself in that context before, but I realized I have always had an inner beast in me that has always demanded that I fight! 

Move forward! 

Strap the metal shield on! 

Then shine like a worn-out Diamond in the end…

I have absorbed every last drop of life into my skin. 

I no longer look to the future. 

I only soak up the sponge of every day to new begin. 

Perhaps years ago I may have been subdued, but through my trials I have become reflective and uninhibited to share. 

I want others to see that a rainbow will appear following the bridge we cross in the rain.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.
