An innocent pure-white heart
does not see manipulation coming
from a distance,
It does not imagine such hurtful things
in its gentle empathetic existence.
It does not see the dark evil monsters
behind their masks--in disguise,
It does not recognise the difference
between genuine truth and shifty dirty lies.

I really hit rock-bottom,
It felt like the earth
had swallowed me whole,
I was in total pitch-black darkness,
I felt mentally and emotionally numb,
whilst all alone in that pit--that morbid hole.
I didn't know what was happening,
I was drowning in sheer madness,
I was unable to stand,
I wasn't able to think straight,
I needed to hold a loving, caring, friendly hand.
Then, came a voice from above me,
Or maybe it was all in my head,
It told me to listen carefully,
It told me not to give up,
I had only fallen, I was not dead.
It reminded me that I am precious,
It reminded me that I am strong,
It reminded me that I am worthy,
that I am beautiful, inside and out,
and that surrendering was very,
This voice fed me
desperately needed courage
It reached into my soul,
It gave me new direction,
It pulled me out of that dark,
scary, lonely, black hole.
It was full of love and wisdom,
It was empathetic and kind,
It was exactly what i needed,
A message from God,
straight to my heart,
clearing my chaotic mind.
I have gone through a difficult transformation,
I have gone back to being the real me
that I was many years before,
I am seeing and thinking clearer...
I pray that this transition
is successful and permanent -
may I stay true to myself

I believe it gave me the courage to remove the smog i hid behind.
I am me again,
Yes i am Rosalie again -
God is great!
Still a long way to go,
but I'm feelimg like the real me again.
A special thank you
to my precious friends
for holding me up.
I appreciate you all!
has washed out,
Leaving only fear
on the bare, naked shore
is damp and cold,
The tide swept away
all that was
now a distant memory,
Out of sight
is their beautiful life -
a love exemplary.
The crystal-clear water
has travelled too faraway
to reach-out and touch,
is their loving reflection -
aching, they both miss it

How can anyone know
what you are feeling,
when you don't even know yourself?
How can anyone understand
what you are going through,
when it makes no sense to one's self?
How can anyone begin to determine
the thoughts that are running
through your mind?
Nobody can feel or understand
the raw emotions
that you alone come to find!
Nobody knows you better
than you know yourself,
If your lucky, in your lifetime,
you may unravel the riddle;
will you find your true self!

We are being held hostage
by our fears,
We are fighting so hard
not to unleash our tears.
We are sinking
into the ground,
as we walk into the bellies
of many a horrific
and catastrophic storm,
We are trying
to hold our hearts together
because they are in pieces -
they were heartlessly broken to bits
We are lost in a maze,
and we are completely out of breath,
We are staring into a big black hole -
our pending final resting place,
upon our lonely death.
We are spinning out of control,
We are scared of falling
into the dark void - that intimidating
We are all alone in a world
that is unfamiliar to our minds,
and to our shattered souls,
in every way,
We are in survival-mode
every single mentally overwhelming,
challenging, but blessed, new day.

Doesn't mean a bad life!
Everyday is a blessing.
Life can be cruel, but the blessing is in each new sunrise, each moment with our loved ones, and each forward step we take.
The sun will shine in due time,
We have to take the good with the bad.
We are warriors!
We are grateful!
We are blessed!
