Hiding From Myself

Hiding from myself

Feelings overwhelm me

Emotions running deep

Flood my heart

Pain wrapped in sadness

Covered in depression

Hidden behind a smile

Showered with tears

Moving in unison

Just can’t find solace

Another gone too soon

Old wounds opened again

Unable to clear my mind

Deprived of sleep

Fear aplenty

Who’s next?


©️2020 CSNelson, Don’t Forget the Half

Inspired by Three Things Challenge/3TC (clear, next, unison); The Daily Spur (flood)

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather 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 a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
