Left to Fail
Left to Fall inside the Grave Life dug for me.
Screaming for help. Begging for assistance. She remains ignored and abandoned.
Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps yell the Memers, Life coaches and Positivity Pimps. They well knowing that you don’t even have shoes much less laces or straps for pulling. The Positivity Pimps refuse to lend a helping hand. Instead mockingly flinging useless memes and affirmations at you while you sit without sustenance at the bottom of the well.
Soon the Positivity Pimps will pour water into the well call it rope and gleefully watch you drown.

Hate to press “like” for the human condition…but the words…the powerful poetry…Yes…had to press like!!
Sending energy that gives you a hug!
This is my truth every day. No matter how many affirmations I say or prayers I can’t avoid reality. I also might leave WordPress because my account has been hacked. Gradually I will move onto other platforms like Google, Instagram and Twitter. Also Linked in. Sometimes I have some good days but slowly those days are few and far in between.
You know I always hold you in light and pray for the day that things turn around for you. Hope Stephen is well and that you get to spend time doing something fun!
Last time I was able to see Stephen was in May. Sadly due to circumstances beyond my control I won’t get to spend time with him this summer. I truly wish things were different. I do miss my brother Stephen but I can’t change reality.
You can feel him in your heart…just as he feels you in his. 💜
It would be better to actually be able to see Stephen. My heart has been broken for a long time
I do have some good news. My artwork. Painting is helpful in that it helps me focus on creating.
Super! Yes!! DeBorah!! I always find that art and creating helps EVERYTHING!! I’m happy you have that outlet!
Your paintings are very expressive! I love your use of color. And you are absolutely beaming while holding your work!!!
Thanks. That was one of my good days while recovering. I’m still in the healing process.
Thanks. I started painting to help me deal with the emotional and physical pain of a previous accident. Collaging I did before the accident. The only time I ever forget that I’m in pain is while I’m creating. Still I often pause for painkillers but my artwork helps me deal with a permanent condition.
Won’t get to see Stephen until maybe the fall. Circumstances beyond my control. I miss my brother Stephen but there’s nothing I can do to change reality.
I saw Stephen in May for his birthday. Unless I get a miracle I won’t be seeing him this summer. I don’t drive. I can’t get anyone to drive me where he lives. There’s no public transportation out there. So we’re separated.
Even though I’m retiring in August 16th. I still don’t have enough resources to do anything except sleep and maybe go to the beach.
The beach is restorative! I always find peace at the beach. Happy retirement!!!
Let’s hope so. I have no expectations for the future.
