Be a Rose

Be a Rose
By Diana Jillian

To break out of your shell
You must face whatever hell
For addiction is a security blanket

Get the mind to unwind
Set it back on rewind
But don’t go too far back

To figure what went wrong
Or to place it into a song
Don’t let yourself get trampled on

Focus a face in the crowd
When things get too loud
To help keep you in the light

You can be both: soft as a petal
And as hard and sharp as a metal
Remain the thorny, sweet Rose

When life gets too loud
Remember to face the crowd
Find that familiar face

Day 364


Day 364 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017.

One day left! I can't believe I made it this far!

I'm grateful I had three days off. I look forward to taking a vacation. I have enough PTO to take two weeks off, but one week will suffice!

I'm grateful for my friend that stuck with me on this project. To tell the truth, because of social media and how it makes my brain feel, I was half tempted to quit before it even started. Thank you for sticking around!


That's The Way It Goes

Discovering soul
Finding the hole
That’s inside me

Gathering the rope
When I’m all out of hope
The tears I’ve left behind

I’m waiting to bloom
Like the hibiscus in June
Waiting is time lost

One day I won’t have to hide
When I see you on the other side
I have a path of life to cross first

Color leads the way
To brighten my day
Darkness still follows

And so
That’s the way it goes!

Day 363


Day 363 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Saturday, July 1st, 2017.

First, can I just say....what in the world just happened on DW! The ending was wicked awesome. Only now I'm on a new countdown. 5 months and 24 days until the next show!

OK, now that I've got that -- sort of -- out of my system, onto the gratuity challenge.

Today I am grateful for my grandma! She is always there to listen! I am grateful for that!

I got some more laundry done, but sadly not the skirt just yet. I'm hoping tomorrow will be different. I just think of the time consumption, and then I get a little discouraged. I am trying my best to work past that!
