By the Lake….

One of my rituals is walking by the lake each day. It allows me the necessities of fresh air and personal space.

I have spent the majority of my life feeling like a caged animal.

The limits and expectations of others forced upon me like a prisoner in solitary confinement.

It is my therapy, my church and my meditation.

As I walk, I tend to replay the multitude of  mistakes I have made.

The words that were cruel buzz about my head like flies.

I remind myself to stop the virus of bad memories from spreading.

I cannot ruin this peaceful place- it is all that I have.
