Some Days ...

Sitting rigid
Arms folded
Wrapped tightly across my chest for
Self comfort.

Flaming eyes
Words firing
Weapons of choice to
Defeat me.

Holding face
Emotions tucked
I dare not blink lest a
Tear escape.

Some days
Are like that.
Some better than others.
Write and release.

And so I did.


No worries everyone; this is not inspired by anything in my personal life ....

  1. Wow, I can relate to that feeling sometimes! thanks for the disclaimer at the bottom, too - we don't need to worry about you! Tried looking at your "on the way to africa blog" but not working for me! When exactly are you leaving? must be really soon, now!

  2. Very powerful words, Lyn. I wouldn't expect this level of poignancy from anyone else ;)

I've made it easier to comment - no nasty word verification. So let me know you dropped by.
