Just a Girl Lost 2

Just a girl lost~ Here I share bits & pieces of me, in poetry, prose, music & posts from writers who inspire me.

There Was a Boy 🇺🇸



There was a boy

He went to war

He fought with valor
He held the scars
He bled in silence
Behind black doors

I tried to heal
the broken parts

My light could not

invade his heart


though he’s gone

I love him still

There was a boy

I always will



* AP photojournalist Horst Faas took this iconic photo on June 18, 1965, during the Vietnam War.

*I chose it for its haunting beauty & because the boy in the photo reminds me of a boy I once loved.

Just a girl lost in some ways, found in others. Writing my thoughts, ideas, dreams, realities, pieces of me ~ not all pretty~ definitely real ~ I'm a mother with faith in God's divine providence. Belief that my mistakes and selfishness and chaotic past are a jumbled tapestry that in the end will be woven heavenly. That all is never what it seems. That good will always claim victory and there is a plan beyond what human eyes and our fallen natures can see. My three children are my miracles, my life, my blessings. They inspire me to be a better woman and human being. I hope that you and I share and learn from each other in the beauty and reality of life on this ever evolving journey. xo ~ This is a place without masks ~ without broken glass paths ~ This is a place to be free To be the me He created me to be ~ Just a girl lost XxX

  3. death is not the true end
    around the bend
    mr bones
    awaits us all
    can you love again
    find a friend
    as our pal lisa
    said is not sex
    it is a willing offer
    of a hand
    and time
    and heart
    and mind
    to connect
    two to one
    one and one
