Tourniquet

Tourniquet

In a moment
Of madness
Bones splintered
In rage
Fingers swell
Her rings glimmer
Refusing
To stop shining
Reflection of a life well loved
Cared for
A boxers fracture
Rings wrap an unnecessary
Tourniquet
Fighting the status quo
Her grit
That moxie
Determination
To save a finger
And the memories
Of the rings
Representing
Honor
A life lost too soon
She tugged
With all her might
Skin
Bulging over both sides
Slice like razor blades
By the rings that
Held her finger captive
Tears pouring down
Her beautiful face
Blood splatters
Everywhere
Tourniquet
No more
Never ever
Say you can’t do something
You can do
Anything
You set your mind to

Many have shared that I am the strongest woman they know. I would disagree... when life kicks you in the teeth there is only one place to look and that is UP. Life within the last six years has been difficult in having lost my father, mother, step-mom, two brothers, nephew, mother-in-law & five beloved dogs. Grief can alter your trajectory a bit...so I write. This blog will be my random thoughts, my hopes, my dreams, defining my strength and my faith. I'm honest, raw and real. If you don't like that... that's ok...I'm writing more for me than you. Maybe someone will find this blog and my words will help you in some small way.
