In a moment
Of madness
Bones splintered
In rage
Fingers swell
Her rings glimmer
To stop shining
Reflection of a life well loved
Cared for
A boxers fracture
Rings wrap an unnecessary
Fighting the status quo
Her grit
That moxie
To save a finger
And the memories
Of the rings
A life lost too soon
She tugged
With all her might
Bulging over both sides
Slice like razor blades
By the rings that
Held her finger captive
Tears pouring down
Her beautiful face
Blood splatters
No more
Never ever
Say you can’t do something
You can do
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! I will be sharing my poetry, random thoughts, my hopes, my dreams, defining my strength and my faith. I'm honest, raw and real. I'm writing more for me, but perhaps someone will find my words that will help you in a profound way
