A genuine original

Be true to you, even when ignored.

You know your heart.

Still, it’s torture when all you want is love and understanding.

I won’t stop being who I am due to the conflict I create with it.

They break my heart with ignorance if only I could close my eyes forever to live in bliss.

Instead, I keep them open it makes me bleed.

How with all this hate can I be free?

Free from societies chains

Regenerate my heart, reunite my belief in humanity.
Let the light you snuffed out, shine as before.
When variety, added spice instead of resentment.
Love unconditional, passion complex and perspectives were created by the big picture.
Love isn’t hate.
Love understands.
Everyone deserves to be loved.

Hope is one of my favorite words. Do you have a favorite? Leave me yours.  What word makes you feel as if you can be amazing?-AKC

Where roads lead…

Life is like a trial of incomplete,
Beginnings and endings.
A maze in which you’re put to run,
To or from things needed and wanted.
Goals, you either accept or deny.
The truth you see within or which you hide.
All in retrospect, when everything is over.
~Angela K. Crandall~

Inspiring souls, connections.

I will always want to believe that I exist for more than myself yet still be able to have goals and be successful without feeling I’m full of greed. I want to take my need to create and put it out there hoping someone will connect with me.

Mothers make magic.
They create reasons to give.
You don’t have to give birth to a child to be a mother either.
Mother’s are sometimes called friends.
Someone who has a place in your heart and has been there.


Can I be me?

And when I am more than you can handle, will you still be there?

When my words don’t match with what you think should explode from my mind.

Given that it is mine, will you search through it, and see the kindness there.

The type that sees through that which is meant to separate us.

Then see why I care, about what happens to everyone.

Even if they do, not care themselves.
