Emotionless

Vacant,jpg
Desensitized
I’m left confused
Who is this shell with no insides
Where others can take shelter and actually feel
Who is this mother who can’t mother
This daughter who can’t daughter
Through the looking-glass, I’ve tumbled
And fell right at the mouth of the beast
And I fight it with only a stick because I’m ill-equipped to handle…
Life
Strife has become my neighbor beckoning me at all hours of the day
And I sing hymnals, read verses, chant, and pray,
Oh, I pray!
But the beasts that have stolen almost every part of my innocence
Have made pacts and entered into alliances
With other-worldly things that are privy to my purpose
And all I can do is rely on the fact that the battle is already won
And relinquish the beast
While I wait in my shell
Emotionless

This single, writer, mama is all about living life to the fullest and realizing her dreams. My pursuit of making a living as a writer from home so that I can do what I love while spending more time with my kids is the biggest dream that I have. My journey is not unusual but, my experiences are unique. I'm learning new things everyday, strengthening my spirit, and having a fun time while doing so. I just want to take you along for the ride. Maybe we can share and grow together.
