The cupboard is filled

China dogs, porcelain cats

Dried floral bouquets

She’s collected memories

That mean nothing to her now

Attitude of Gratitude May 13 2020

Thank you, for your Attitude of Gratitude:

At times we question our emotions or even attempt to control them believing emotions are a sign of weakness. This can be toxic leaving us truly weak.

Affirmation:  I embrace my emotions with gratitude!

 I love you, Annette Rochelle Aben

Steel Myself #writephoto

In response to Sue Vincent’s weekly #writephoto prompt of this week: Web


It was my suit of armor, the web of lies I wove. Couldn’t let them get to know the real me for then they would surely leave. I was a more interesting person with the lies. I felt powerful.

Shield yourself from the pain of rejection. Never allow them to walk away first. Don’t give them the power of thinking they have your number!

When I choose to, I can peel off the armor and free myself of the weight of it all. But who am I fooling? It’s just another lie I tell to make myself feel strong.

A river of tears

Flowing freely from within

Clears a path for joy
