My life resurfaced in a wave upon a shore,

Oh! how time told a different story,

there was a tale, of a tale told.


My childhood dreams

got tossed out to  the seas.

And the tale told lies of my  years.

A long time ago I dreamt like all girls. A good desire for a happy life with a good man who provided for his family. But when I tried to make that happen to get through school, I could not succeed. I quickly learned that would not be accomplished then because I had lied to myself and other people. My life turned into put downs and push downs. Because I was not honest with myself. I reasoned like a selfish child. That was the truth.
