Embers of hope spark within my heart, Daring to wish for a semblance of change Yet again, my expectations are extinguished As quickly as they came to fruition, A withering flame trying desperately to maintain life
I am 24 years old today! It's kind of hard to believe I'm at another birthday again, because the passage of time over this past year has been so wonky. That said, I'm very grateful to have made it through what was an incredibly harrowing, fearful year for many of us.
Love is always love, So raise the flag of your pride Love prevails, always
Thoughts swirling downward in a spiral of doubt Below the fractured surface, darkness quietly rumbles It waits for the opportune moment to strike, Its serpentine tendrils squeezing around my tender flesh Held in a crushing vice grip, despair infects my mind Every trace of hope slowly trickles out, Scarlet rivulets fading into nothingness
I’m very grateful to have all my kitties around and here with me. I often think about how different my life would be if I didn’t have them, and I can safely say it wouldn’t be for the better. I love my kitties so very much and love that I can be with them every single day. Please, give your fur babies some extra cuddles and pets for me; they deserve it!
