Daily Prompt; Naked With Black Socks


http://dailypost.wordpress.com/, DP, Daily Post

Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PUBLIC.

Wow, can you see inside my screen? I am comfy right now in my black socks. But oh wait, I am not naked. Whew, I thought you could see me.

Am I comfortable in front of people? It depends on the situation. If I am around people who make me place my wall up immediately before thinking about it, no, I am not comfortable.

I have been working for months on changing myself. Improving my own self image. I am trying to learn that I am entitled to my own opinions. I have always been afraid to say what I truly feel inside for fear of upsetting someone.

So put me in a circlecircle and I will probably be very quiet. You can count on the fact that if there has been friction of ill feelings I will be the last one to speak.

Now if I am trying to spread news of something I know to be good. Or maybe teaching something I know about, I will be the first one to volunteer to speak.

If someone ask me to talk about M.S.A. I would be asking, ” What time and day?”

If someone wanted to know how to decorate their home on what they have lying around the house, I would be all smiles.pulpit If you want a testimony on how God has used me in my life, ask.

I love to help others. I love people in general, but please, don’t try to get me to change who I am.

Don’t make me feel guilty because I don’t agree with you every time.

Please don’t try to put your feet  in my shoes because only I am the only one who walks  in them.skeletonbook4

If I Ruled The World


If I ruled the world                                                                      earth

I would wipe

Away all illness

Every day would

Be new and kind

No sharp tongues

Families holding

Thoughts and hands

No starving

No sleeping

In boxes

Children would

Be free to roam

Unafraid of no one

If I ruled the world

God would

Be smiling

As he would

Be pleased.

Something Stupid


I felt like I

Did not fit in

All I wanted

Was to

Be noticed

He was in my class

I caught his eye

He smiled and

I smiled back

On Friday night

We met

We went

To the park

I said something

Stupid like

I love you

And now as

I look down

At my baby

In my arms

I weep.

The Sounds Of Silence


I know the reason

It’s called Respite

Needed for people

Who are caregivers

The air feels stale

The walls seem bare

The sounds of

Silence are deafening                                                  empty_house_by_scarlettletters-d3fenj7

What is not

Normal I do crave

The ticking of the clock

Pierce my ears

My eyes are heavy

But sleep stalls

As I lay silently

Waiting to go to him

For he needs me

But for now

I must rest

I must get ready

For the new day

When hopefully

He will once again

Bring these

Walls to life.
