    My insides are screaming for air. As though I'm surfucating and cannot breathe. As they fight to get out into the air I push them deeper inside afraid of what I'm going to say and how I'm gonna say it. I need release from the ache in my bones, they can't breathe. Help me to understand all this is real, there's nothing to impare my eyes for what I need to see. The screaming is getting so loud, I can't hear all my other thoughts. My eyes fill up with tears and none will fall. Is it that I am growing silent inside myself. As my whole being is dying with such pain. I hear myself in my ear, please help me and take this pain from inside me.

    It's maddening what grief and self-doubt can do to us, isn't it? To become to unsure of yourself, to distrust your own voice or opinion...fearful of what your tongue may do if used to speak and fight for yourself. The frustration is unfathomable, the solution unclear, and the mounting agony unbearable. What's a person to do to alleviate such pressure and pain? You need your own "Zen" moment, Gurl; a singular moment in time and space where you can settle your aching heart and mind and find free release from the pins and needles upon which you lay. Have confidence in will get there eventually.



    Thanks so much. Your kind words give me comfort and encouragement. I'm older now and have found a place of my own. I'm still working on the issues that suprises me or catches me off guard. Thank You.. That Gurl

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
