Tears of Womanhood

Today I cried, not the tears I used as a child
But tears of a woman, who doesn’t know where to go
Life doesn’t come with a manual and for reasons such as so.
No one could have warned me
How would they be expected to know?
Life is life
And never can one person have all the answers
I’m just wondering if there’s some clues…
A playbook of sorts
If A then B, you know something you can break down analytically
This is something a college degree can’t make clearer
How to make someone see you as their bigger picture
Today I cried, but I’ll be alright
There’s a warrior within me that’s used to the fight.
I am down but I am not out
I am a woman who learns more and more what she’s about
So that’s where I end this
Crying my tears of womanhood
Waiting for my answered prayers of something good…..

Hello world!


Alright. Here goes nothing…..or everything! LOL. Not sure where to start, so I’ll share a bit of me via my poetry.  This one entitled “A New Day” and in more than one way, this indeed is just that for me…..

Sometimes love knocks you down
leaves you breathless
and then you wake up and realize you can’t breathe.
All that you have to give has been taken
There’s a fog so thick you can’t see
How did I get here?
How did this all happen?
Then like a scene in a movie the flashback begins….
A pretty little something enters
The clouds begin to form, but there’s so much sunshine it goes unnoticed
Then the sky opens up and it storms.
Rain, rain go away…
Except the rain is the very thing that brings a new day!
The sun shines bright, so bright on your face
You awake to realize even nightmares have an end.
