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.


Be a lotus flower…


“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world”


~ Buddha






it’s just who I am


i always forgive, those who are worthy of forgiveness
i believe in live and let live
each day is a new beginning
each misstep, mistake
each fall from grace is an
for growth and change
life is a lesson in humility

i always reach out
i always feel regret
and give benefit of the doubt
hoping that understanding
irons out the anger and pain
leading to new beginnings or at least no more ugliness prowling life’s page
even to those who use cruelty & play petty, small mind games

i still reach out
getting slashed by
acid tongues lashing
rehashing~drunk on the past
feeling like a fool for seeing more than exists in them

until I find my peace again
realizing that haters will hate,
but i don’t have to hate back

it’s just who I am
