Wednesday Words: Balance & Resolve

Life can't break you unless you let it. Hold strong. I'm recovering from my day job  trauma; it didn't destroy me. It was enough turmoil to keep me from people & pursuing my passions such as photos & writing.... Have to find the balance for it all! 

This is one of my favorites. I rarely repost but Wednesday with Words sounded like fun. It's no Sunday for sure but fun nonetheless. Here's one from a year ago. I'll quote Matisse with a grin & say that I'll be working on a new series with photos & words soon. 

Kisses, m.

Unbroken ~ Will




I've found my balance

On my own.

Although I'm missing you,

I'm not missing anything.

A feeling reminds my heart 

Of your presence in it while

An ache reminds me

Of my need for freedom

And your need to be free without me. 


Sure of myself.

It's not bravado.

It's confidence. 

I know I'm capable.

Perfectly imperfect.


Unlike a mask of weakness

Appears harsh, abrasive.

It's meant to last

When the masks crumble.

Sometimes I wonder if

It's because I'm not broken.

I used to think I was.

I wasn't. 

My resolve holds me firm.

My skeleton is lined with hope.

I heal.

I live with the scars. 

Functioning and whole 

Even when I'm missing... you.
