Memories: Part 6 – The final frontier, final showdown and last 54 days.

Knowing – poem by SE Allen

I know where you are, I was there too. No amount of “things”, take away the blue. Talking helps but only if you hear. It’s not the thoughts, the actions you fear. The road will be dark and long.

Woke up this morning and the ballots are still being counted and the whole world is watching.

Burden by Suzanne Allen

Felt positive, sure, and moving.Put on the mask of happiness.Always a burden. Opened heart bared not hardened.Thought people actually cared.Always a burden. Tears come easy and often.The quiet of being alone is deafening.Always a burden. Soul is tired of hurting.Just wanted a life to call my own.Always a burden. This wasn’t eden the garden.It was… Continue reading Burden by Suzanne Allen
