every day i live with the certainty that i cannot shake my insecurity

inside me lurking, peering about, that unloved girl trying to get out

she sits in my eyes how i see myself

trying to sabotage with her bitter stealth

mocked as a youth, seldom told the truth

almost never smiled turned to running wild

struggling as an adult to find my own ways

hoping to find peace one of these days

still hungry for acceptance tired of anything less

trying to wriggle out of that old  tattered dress

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
