I had a dog ONCE,
I Brought a dog home, plenty of times,
I used to be younger than i am now,
I damn near gave my mom a heart attack,
I dont know how many times,
we laugh about them now,
i wish i could laugh with her forever,
i probably could honestly
We have the same humor, mines is a little darker but she was a stand up comedian at one point, i dont know whose funnier,
i have my moments, (pause, Nostalgia, missing loved ones)
(Cross the road)
I have my guitar,
(Pause-introspection-write out analysis- GO) i wrote that the way i did cuz i bring the guitar with me everywhere,
it embodies hope and life to me somehow,
like im jimi hendrix or joni mitchell or something,
i was a fat kid when i was young,
I was violent intelligent and well hated,
now im different, peaceful and more wise than intelligent,
I look old but im just 22,
Young, in good shape, but i feel very old (Pause, introspection, blunt observation) family is important, but heartbreaking at times, (Pause)
(Cross the road)...
life has sorrow in store for me... I'll be strong through it all,
i love my brother although our relationship is complicated, he loves me genuinely thats all that matters, and i didn't know it till i became an adult, he has a daughter, i love her in a way that makes me cry sometimes because she so much like me, my mom tells my brother that sometimes and he gets mad about it, i love my family,
(Pause, smile, breathe, remember, cross the road) heaven and surely hell shows in my family, but when you meet people and see the way they are, you learn to love family and appreciate those roots, they really do matter... i don't call or talk to my family enough,
i probably never will,
we're all that way,
if my family had a motto i think itd be
out if sight out of mind,
but that makes me love them even more,
i have to do well, i wont let them down, they see potential in me, i have to fight for their belief in me and blossom in this world, not to be seen even, but to make it sweeter somehow
(Pause, Look Both Ways, Proceed With Caution)

De fil en aiguille, tu as réussi à faire ta place. Je doutais au début, car je me disais que jamais un garçon comme toi aurait pu être mon genre.
Tu étais distant et ça m'allumait. J'me suis précipité sur ton cas et c'était la première fois que je me faisais dire " prend ton temps ". Tu avais entièrement raison, c'était trop vite. Trop tôt.
Deux,trois jours sans nouvelle, me disant que j'ai foiré. Trois autres jours, sans un mot ni bonjour. Ça y est, c'est mort.
La courte morale de cette histoire; prend ton temps. Le plaisir vient dans le désir. .
○ leftovers ○
I would write his name down
In a book I kept close to my chest
Clutching onto these pages as if
I was holding him
Baring my heart to share
Yet all he ever did was eat
I was left an empty, dirty bowl
He didn't care to ever wash
Stuck at the bottom of the cold sink
And soon I wrote his name
With the leftovers he refused to touch
And the feeling of neglect kept building
Flooding until I was drowning
A forgotten mess left to rot
After so many days left waiting
For him to stop using his hands to take
I learned that I wasn't his to love
But to feast upon the rawest parts of myself
Until the flesh was torn from the bone
Completely bare before his gorging
And the book I used to write his name in
Soon became a spineless love
How he shaped me to be
Whenever we were alone together
But after his binges I stopped writing his name
Tearing each page one by one
I threw away in my own sink
Watching them wash away in the garbage disposal
Oh how I wish I would've done this
So many nights before he had devoured my heart

Repent today before it's too late.
Come to God the Father through Jesus Christ.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
I ask for forgiveness for my sins.
I believe Jesus Christ is the son of God.
I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins.
I believe that Jesus was resurrected on the third day.
I believe that Jesus is coming back to take me and judge the world.
Wash me by the blood of Jesus and make me clean.
Fill me with the Holy Spirit.
Today I am saved and I am your Child.
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.
the devils chains has been broken and I am free.
Last week I had the opportunity to meet my writing (and life) idol, @cherylstrayed at the International Women’s Summit in Phoenix. She is a women of deep integrity, imagination, and character. Her words have provided comfort and inspiration too many, including me. .
She was just at the beginning of a flu, but was gracious enough to sign books and meet with attendees after her keynote. I was so nervous, I lost the words I worked so hard to find. I guess that’s what happens when you get so close to the truth. .
I was able to share a poem with her though. A poem I had written inspired by a personal story she shared on the @dearsugars podcast. One where she felt betrayed by the editors for @voguemagazine for photoshopping her body and face to appear thinner. This episode, ‘Trust Your Body’ - June 9, 2018, spoke so clearly through and to me at the time that I stopped what I was doing and wrote this poem. My dog, who I was walking at the time, stared at me with deep confusion while I furiously typed this poem out, careful not to lose any of the emotion that came pouring out with it.
Now, I will never really know if she read this poem at all. And I guess, in a way it doesn’t matter. I just hope, that through my fumbles and mumbles, I was able to convey how deeply her words touched me that day. I hope she knows how much her words touch everyone lucky enough to hear them.
so I worked on some baby stuff for the day to be added to my first baby’s storage until needed
there isn’t a car seat because I’m planning on having a waterbirth at home, though if I give birth in a hospital, I will walk home with baby! I still live at walking distance and that is regardless of if I do purchase a car seat after that time
mostly essentials, and though I am planning on cloth diapering, diapers I’ll be building more of a stock in overtime
so what about dear dad? He CHOSE to be entertained by others by devising this to begin with, which is his choice, but when it comes to my children, I don’t negotiate my present moment and knowing that I’m there every step of the way
I thought that was good enough for the first supply saving trip, and decided I might not need that medical marijuana.. we’ll see if I change my mind😁
I am also planning on breastfeeding hence the portable electric pump, but I’ll still pick up a can of formula another time.. although.... I’ve got time! I’m not even pregnant yet!
spoke to a woman who is 6 mos though! She’s having her baby shower soon🤗
Can’t be distracted when my eyes on the prize. And if you so happen to be that person in my life, then you will always be the prize. All eyes can be on me but my eyes will always be on you. .

LIBRA FULL SUPERMOON: MARCH 20
"The Full Super Moon is occurring in Libra at 0 degrees on March 20 at 9:43 PM ET. This Full Moon is illuminating where we are stuck in the past and where we need to let go in order to move on to face a new future. We are being asked to see the places that seem frozen in our lives. This can be in situations, jobs, projects or relationships where things have been in a holding pattern for far too long. If there is no progress, it may be time to let it go. Remaining pinned to the past hurts us moving forward. This can also be showing up in where we are clinging to something like old thoughts, beliefs or relationships where we feel we can’t move on. We also may feel a part of a situation where someone else is stuck which is influencing us. We may also be shown where preserving appearances is hurting everyone involved. :
The Sun just moved into Aries, and doesn't like this stuck energy one bit, which can cause some friction and movement. Aries loves beginnings and can’t stand feeling trapped. Aries the Ram reminds us it’s time to let go and move away from impossible scenarios. We are beginning to shift gears as Mercury will be direct in a few days, which will shift momentum ahead immensely. Be prepared, as the dam will burst and things will begin to flow quickly. Libra shows us where things may be imbalanced in our relationships and partnerships. The time has come to be bold and direct about our needs and desires. What we need is valid. Don’t sell yourself or what you require short to anyone or anything. Get my complete Full Moon Report & daily astrological forecast by clicking the link in my bio." ~Ara
