“those who prepared for all the emergencies of life beforehand may equip themselves at the expense of joy.”  E.M. Forster


I Had Let Go

I stood by the graveside of my mind
and peered beyond the edge
into the void of my crowded hour,
and found the door to a
feathered lightness of grief
where I floated on wings of joy,
such that there were no words
possible to speak with any sense
of meaning other than that
I had let go.

  4. A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely, she let her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter A strong woman is both soft and powerful, for she is both practical and spiritual in many levels that no once can reach.

    She is indefinitely a strong woman in her wonderful essence, an invigorating light to everyone, she is a gift to the entire universe.
