You’ve Reached Your Destination

Running late today

Looking for a shortcut

Seldom do I travel this way.

I see a familiar face

But in an unfamiliar place

With another unfamiliar face

Filling a familiar space.

My eyes open wide

So much of the unexpected

Is it really you I see?

Undermining all we are

Quickly becoming what we were

Love turns to hate in a moment

Such deception bankrupting my trust.

Tick…and then nothing

Who, how, and why!

Tock…sounds so loud

I’m going out of my mind.

What’s my next move?

So many questions

Stealth movement in my footsteps

Yet my silence is so loud.

You turn and look at me

Bet you didn’t see this coming

Your face says it all

Surprise, fear, guilt,

Save your lies

A shame you’re such a fool.

You try but there’s no escaping

I found my shortcut

To the end

Of this thing you called love

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am, but rather that I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for your first approach. From that point you'll understand the power behind such a statement. If you're interested in what I do, that's another story. I embrace life to live my purpose: I treat self, I mother, I friend; I laugh, I cry, I support; I love, I like, I admire. I'm passionate about everything associated with "home." My motto: 'If you don't have TGIHome moments every day, you ain't there yet!' I sell real estate and I'm always happy to show off my interior decorating skills. I'm licensed and certified so I must be good! Mainly I trust and have faith, and thank God for every day I am able to use my life experiences to help people through theirs. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
