Time is my friend?

Holly Flame Maxey 1976 (baltimore)

Therapy is like being pregnant
And you know the daddy’s name
Is Trauma
Treat the pain, have a healthy baby
Deny the pain & become a graveyard
Love cannot exist in a state of grief

Terror and pain will lead you towards
A healthier life
The road to success is filled with
Blood and many, many tears

We all die…. but….
How many of us really live?
If we do not deal with the pain
Future generations will inherit it

Live & Love without fear
Heal the past
Hope for the future
Live in the Now
