Living Purposeless

I remember when I thought your way was the best way. 

Dreams hidden deep inside.

Lost to the reason of my existence.

Instead metamorphosing into a stranger.

A stranger living inside me.

A stranger marrying a stranger.

A stranger raising strange kids.

Doing strange things thinking it was the way.


A stranger losing purpose of life in the illusion of the American dream.

White picket fence and college degree delusions of happiness but strange emptiness instead. 

Reason of existence muffled by the world of look-a-likes and act-a-likes. 

“I remember when I thought your way was the best way.”

As a country girl growing up shy in Georgia, sharing my emotions was something that I did not do. I was a beautifully sun-kissed child that always felt loved but out of place. As I got older and life sent me through many roads both up and down, I decided I needed an outlet to put the many growing emotions and opinions from both the past and the present into perspective… so I began expressing through writing and photography. My idea of writing is simple and heartfelt. I do not consider my writing to be classified as poetry or that of a highly skilled writer but just words that are my own. So I really hope you enjoy my blogs, storytelling, and photography. As you enjoy this journey with me, I really hope you are inspired and motivated.
