I am an engineer by trade, but a poet and songstress at heart. I started writing occasional articles online about five years ago, but poetry is still my first love.

Having recently escaped a 28-year long toxic relationship, I will tread lightly if and when I enter another
We often wonder why we attend church all of our lives, but never experience the peace and joy that God promises to believers. Maybe we need to check our mindset. Perhaps we are holding onto old habits and behaviors that are hindering our spiritual growth. Maybe we're not thinking righ...
It's sometimes hard to make a move, even one you know is best for you, when others don't understand. I made a decision to divorce after 28 years of marriage. Family, friends and church members questioned my decision, my faith, even my sanity. All I know is that I am finally at peace a...
Some people don't seem to understand that you can't make constant withdrawals and never make deposits. It doesn't work with banks and it doesn't work with other people either.
Have you ever dealt with someone so self-serving and self-centered that even when you sever ties with them, they still expect you to bend over backwards to help them? It's amazing to me (and not in a good way)! What's more amazing is that they are amazed that I refuse to deal with the...
It's been quite a while since I went on a rant. I'm long overdue. Here is a short list of issues I have with social media. I'm sure you have yours, too.
It's been a while since I've written; it's been even longer since I felt like writing. The past year has been tumultuous and trying, to say the least. Today, I decided to take myself to dinner and bring a fresh new journal/notebook along. It was like getting reacquainted with an old f...
I am getting SO VERY ANNOYED with people who think they know better than I what's best for me without having a clue as to what I've endured.
Many people say "I'm sorry", when what they REALLY mean is "I'm sorry I got caught". If one is truly sorry, one should not be a repeat offender. Just my opinion...
Having recently reached a milestone in my life, I have taken some time to review and re-evaluate some things, particularly relationships. I have decided that some people aren't worth holding on to. If they don't add value to my life, then their absence will will not be noticed.
It took me almost seven months to be able to write this article. A time of discovery and revelation about myself. Don't judge a book by its cover - truer words were never spoken....
Marriage is HARD WORK! But there are those who have struggled and come through just fine, because they finally figured out how to work together as one.
Have you ever been trapped in a situation from which there seemed to be no escape? It's hellish, believe me. I long to have my life back so badly, I just want to scream!
I had to make sure I was prepared for the backlash that could stem from writing this article. The premise is: What the right-wing labels as socialism and redistribution of wealth are actually two basic principles of the Church illustrated in the Bible. A fellow Christian told me this ...
How can one heal the wounds of a failed relationship while still knee-deep in it?
When we are truly meant to have something, we don't have to work hard to keep it....
Recognizing the signs that may be telling you it's time to end the relationship...
Sometimes you're involved in a relationship so awful, you are willing to shoulder all the blame for its failure just to end it.
Some people have it twisted. They assume that just because people are always in their presence they should be considered friends who can be counted on to be there when times are tough. This is not always the case. Don’t confuse the people who are always around with the ones who a...
Some people are in complete denial that they have problems and/or issues that need to be resolved and that some change needs to be effected in their lives and relationships to make things better.
We all have problems; that's part of life. However, the attitude we have going through tough times really can determine in what condition we arrive on the other side.
Wondering why people do the wrong things and then try to lie about them. Why go through all the trouble of making up stories to cover up what you've done? Isn't it easier to just do the right thing to begin with?
Sometimes, people corner us and think they have us defeated because we are generally meek and mild-mannered. More often than not, we will use that opportunity to unleash everything on them that we had been trying (in our attempts to be polite) to hold back.
When you are young and in love with the idea of love, you can be blind to real motives at work in the relationship. But with age (hopefully) comes wisdom...
Seems you can learn a lot from a turkey and a goose. Read on to see what I'm talking about.
