#SoCS #JusJoJan – ERASED

Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS and #JusJoJan prompt from Linda Hill challenged us to close our eyes and point to a word in any book, newspaper or whatever is handy and write a post based on the selected word. My word for the day is “erased,” found on page 301 of my current reading pleasure We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy by award winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

memories erased

future thoughts lived on today

fade out tomorrow

leaving visions of a life

she no longer recognized

©️2021 CSNelson, Don’t Forget the Half


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.
