A Poetic Interlude to Easier Said Than Done

Easier Said Than Done - Cover

The crisp, ripe smell of destiny is aglow, vividly.

Awaiting accomodation from my smile.

So, my tender lips, ever so gently embraces and ignites such flames of promise.

I shall heal.

The frostbitten and brittle days of yesteryears rested heavily on my soul
......a burdened milestone smoothed from bouts of blue anguish.

I shall release.

Taking hold of the future without fear, using all of my senses to embrace what
lies ahead.

The future represents my passion awakened from the soul of my undying spirit.

Reflection of my bittersweet past brings the realization that time has released
me from the gaping wounds of my blood and tear soaked journey.

Inspite of and despite all ...... I've discovered my own path on my own and for
my own .....finding my destiny was Easier Said Than Done.

Easier Said Than Done.

Dedicated to my sister, mother and all of the beautiful and selfless women who are doing it and doing it well ..... regardless!
