My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

More than Words

lettersWords spewed forth



A sausage string


consonants and vowels


Syllables ring

In the ears of a child



…Syntax error alert !

Naive cognition fails to compute 



Intentions seep

From veiled meanings



Crafting the scar-tissue

Around the Heart




Words spewed forth



Enmeshed in a  tangle of lesions

Clotting pathways


the Soul

  1. My eyes are filling with tears just a couple of hours later. It’s a bloody chorus going round the world. How lucky your daughters. From such Mothers come generations of women that stand strong and tall. Daughters who tell the truth with their heads held high and their shoulders back! Huge!!!

  2. It’s also my intention to heal that scar tissue around the heart… you spoke of this so eloquently.

    As a mother also (to an almost 4 year old son) share your desire to be a force of light…

    Thanks again, Colleen for such an insightful post.

  3. It is sad, Colleen, and you’ve pointed
    out just why it is wrong and unjust.
    Some people don’t know when to
    shut up, and they seem to get a kick
    out of shaming and blaming another.

    Scars protect, but they also divide,
    Some wounds never completely heal.
    God bless you on your journey towards
    healing the remaining sore spots within.

  4. Thank you Sara, Belle and UT.

    I am so proud to have broken the cycle….a feat that some people sadly never manage to accomplish, thus perpetuating the generational dysfunction.
