This Isn’t Normal

Lies, false promises, insincere

Fraud, contempt, betrayal, disgust

Driving force of fear and mistrust

Sowing seeds of hate and despair

Wreaking havoc year after year

Social issues surge systemic

Lives of thousands loss, pandemic

Every day a media bash

Cries of “fake news” evoke backlash

“Do you think he’s schizophrenic?”

Inspired by Ronovan Writes Decima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 38 (bash on D line)


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.
