What if I do

 
 
 
 
 
Standing at the edge of the pond, water clear as glass.

From nowhere discernible, the pebble falls.

 Ripples that change the face of reality.

 Opportunities lost, destinies changed.
 


The dream that once was, is no longer.

 Maybe I'm not really what I think I am.

My strength is epic, a facade at best.

The face I present, a mask for society.

I must bend, I can't break.
 
But what if I do.

    1. I think I'm strong enough and wise enough. Huh...what a stupid thing to think. I just need a bit of a break from all the bad news. It weighs me down like a black cloud.

  3. That is such a scary place to be but you know you have a lot of people in your life that can help you through. Sometimes they even make you stronger than you are before.

    1. Your right DB, the problem is, I don't want to be stronger. I don't want more challenges.

      Hmmm...I wonder who I speak to about that.

  4. This sounds like you are in a scary place. Just remember to remove the mask for Musicman.

    1. He sees through the mask, even when I am reluctant to remove it.

  5. There are times when we succumb, but then we find the strength to fight again.
    Allow yourself to be human and do what you can.
    Together you can find a way.

    1. Oh Minelle, I so hope things are going well for you, that your Scotman is recovering nicely. I'm not so blind that I don't see the struggles of others.

      I know I will survive the pain, he will accept nothing less.

  6. Breaking happens. Putting the pieces together happens too.
    But I think you won't break.

    1. I don't know, I feel broken. I sometimes get stuck in the negativity, it can be very overwhelming. Musicman is my anchor, my strength, my will to go on. I don't think I can ask for more.

  7. Beautiful.

    You can bend but you will not break, not as long as MM has your back.

    1. I think he is the only thing that keeps me going. The negative energy is weighing heavily right now and I'm having a hard time focusing. I'm so grateful I don't have to face it all alone.

  9. If you break you will pick up the pieces and put yourself back together again with the support of the people who love you and care about you. But I do not think you will break. You are strong. But do not worry if you do. You are also human and a beautifully sensitive person. You do not need to hide. Hugs, Terps

    1. You're not supposed to see me hiding, that conveys weakness. Sometimes though, I just have to hide. It's a bit embarrassing to not be as strong as I would like to be.
