There is a hill beyond that wall
and theres a girl upon the hill
and though she seems so small
and shes sitting there quite still

She is clinging to a Rock
and holding on so tight
for when a storm comes raging in
It helps her stand her fight

And when the storm is calm 
she sprinkles pebbles where she can 
so more rocks can grow
for those in sinking sand

And shes an open book
who doesnt tell it all
for some pages make her weep
and sometimes make her fall

trapped inside the stories
explanations for her sake
but she tries to move past mountains
tries to step outside the wake

for she has worked so very hard
to not let it tear apart
And prays for sensitivity
with all the scars upon her heart

This took some time
took years in fact
to keep what you consider
an "innocence"

And dont for a moment
pretend she cannot fight
and cannot defend
Shes choosing stronger harder ways
shes choosing calming happy days

Shes choosing to remain soft

173.365 {the chair}

come and sit a spell
and let me share
my deepest thoughts and curious bits
of which you might be unaware

a cozy place to drift off to
my present my past and future events
where love prevails and my faith gets me through
and all other of my minds contents

ill ramble on of days gone past
of sun glares and pollen floating by
of breezes so gentle they will tickle your arms
as we watch the sun move through the sky

and as it sets you can share of your dreams
you can whisper some things in my ear
and watch as the moon raises up the stars
and we know we have nothing to fear

and together we sit
in this chair in this place
sharing our lives
and taking up space

something soft would be nice
a place to rest my bones
a little more sleep and less advice
from the glass houses with all the stones

and its funny because
what you think isnt true
and what you say
is not that way
i know what ive been through

and had you asked
i might have shared
instead of reclused
known someone cared

but now the time has past
i myself have grown
but it still does hurt
when you throw a stone

so i take comfort in knowing my judge
and im thankful it isnt you
leaving the past behind me
hoping you will too

152.365 { the sky }

not sure exactly what kind of clouds these were.
but it looked as if the ocean waves loomed over head in dark shades of grey...
fitting for the day today

waves of emotions hit close to home
too close

cant wait for the day to end

151.365 { lunch }

sometimes a little bit of something delicious is all you need.
