I am the one whose identity hangs on jeweled chains. I am the one who grows even when the soil is dry and barren.
Black and Blue
I am the one who yearns to see the light seep through these bars of pain.
I am the one who is locked up inside unable to speak my truths.
I am the one who sails in the waters, bold and buoyant, hoping that someone hears my cry for help.
Camera Lady - skeletons in the closet
I am the one who is taking inventory of all my life's losses.
Coiled in Steel
I am the one who tries to witness the details without the burden of the visual intake.
I am the one who offers love and compassion beyond measure.
I am the one who haunts the fields, closed down, too destroyed to keep producing, echoing across barren fields, a reminder of what once was and what is yet to be.
I am the one who has been chopped up out of my natural form and sat on by others, worn and tattered, yet strong and stable.
I am the one who looks beyond the sweet smile to find the storms of the internal landscape, a reflection of the fine person inside.
Fallen In Blue
I am the one whose memories are vast and hopes are few.
A Tiny Existence
I am the one who, despite my small and limited existence, can metamorphose into a lovely and gentle being, flying freely amidst the dangers of the universe.
I am the one who remains grounded and ready to fly.
I am the one who has the complete freedom to choose the right beginning. I am the one who can recognize truth out of the sea of falsehoods.
I am the one whose tapestries weave in many variations of a story yet untold. I am the one who towers great wishes above the yearning, bringing reality to the unseen.
Highway to Heaven
I am the one who is witness to the sufferings of the world. I am the one who is enwrapped in tattered tapestries, vision tainted by dirty threads, seeking warmth in the barren cold.
Lady of Great Wisdom
I am the one who sees beyond the superficial layers, the individual parts, eyes wide open to the more complex whole.
I am the one who lies in tender and gentle thoughts.
Navigation Through Empty Landscape
I am the one who navigates through the desolate landscape of emptiness grasping tightly to a seed of hope for a more beautiful future.
I am the one who is not ready to risk it all again for fear I won't survive. I am the one who travels the long path alone trying to find my way back home.
I am the one who thinks deeply, loves passionately, and laughs till my eyes weep.
Shattered Over Flames
I am the one who wrestles with the wicked winds of the past and the stormy forces of the present, unpredictable and exhausting.
I am the one who is not blind to life's challenges.
I am the one whose glee flutters magically presenting goodness all around.
I am the one who waits, bare naked, in the stark reality of that which creates me.
I am the one who travels long distances through tunnels of despair.
I am the one who is young and vulnerable.
I am the one who navigates forward in search of something yet unknown.
I am the one whose vulnerability celebrates truth.
I am the one who continues to grow and reach for harmony.
