Chasing begging asking you to do.
Done worrying about loosing you.
No more calling, texting just to be ignored.
No more an option when you're bored.
You see I'm done trying to be you're everything.
And I'm done waiting on the phone to ring!
Time is not my best friend.
So I'm serving me until the end!
Living my best life that only I can do!
Finding fulfillment without you.
Done being an option, and not priority!
Done living for you and not for me!
Behold a new one has seen the light.
Soaring, gliding, taking flight!
Eyes now open for me to see!
Much better now and flying free!

Sometimes the best way to turn a chapter in your life is to write and release. That's what I do in many of my works to help me move on. I turn an experience into inspiration to write. Other times, I may be inspired just by listening to the stories or experiences of others. There's a reason God gave us two ears and one mouth. Listen more and talk less!! For example my beloved poem, "A New Day and A New Dawn", was inspired after one of many brilliant conversation with my dear friend Cheryl Sullivan. I listened, and received the message and that poem was born. So I dedicate the poem to her, aka The Oracle! I hope all my writings can be a form of inspiration and support for others on this journey called life! more…
