She pride

her world

harsh realities

tiring dreams

voiceless screams

her world

fleeting fantasies

blissful dreams

pale moonbeams

her constitution strong

her edited life gone

the lioness within

her pride

still she seeks



we look for it

but we are blind

    Wonderfully said! There is a chink in the ceiling, I’m waiting for the day when the glass will fall.

    I like the progression of seemingly contradictory states of mind, and how it builds up to a harmonious whole. Excellent take!

    beautiful cat. Hi there. I am going around the neighborhood introducing myself. My name is Marc. My blog contains excerpts from my book The Driveway Rules. It contains memoirs about growing up with undiagnosed autism. I hope you stop by.
