Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

I was hoping to have this posted by 9:00. Then every writer’s worst nightmare happened. Poem deleted. Never to be read again.

Racing heart. Incoherent thoughts. Disappointment.

How could you have done something so stupid Rita? What are you going to do now?


Not post today?

Rewrite the poem and make it even better?

Yes, you and I always have a choice. We may not like our options, but we have a choice.

As far as the poem, it is fundamentally the same. Is it better than the original? I think so!


No longer chained to lies

Bound to others ideals

No price or pain too much

To be authentic ME.


Transparency and truth

No hidden skeletons

Whether in light or dark

Always authentic ME.


No pretense or excuses

No tolerance for cliques

No self-pity or shame

I am authentic Me.


Not imprisoned by fear

Perfection image or

What others think of me

I love authentic ME.


Now an eagle flying

High above the mundane

All because I have chose

To be authentic ME.

Thanks for listening to my voice! Feel free to like and share it with your friends.

Have a great day! Rita

Be a VOICE in the deafening sound of sameness!

      Thank you! It’s an ongoing process. Each day becoming more the person God created. It’s a wonderful adventure, both exhilarating and challenging. May you too discover the “authentic ME”. Have a wonderful week!

Be a VOICE shouting in the silence. Lets love others!
