I'm scared to open up on these pages
Where all might poke around & see
My innermost thoughts; the skeletons in my closet
The stories I feel compelled to share
Tucked up and woven in between my auburn colored hair
But tell I must, for in sharing I believe others 
Will understand they're not alone
So bear with me as I peel back the layers and finally see
What's been dying to get out for as long as I can remember
If I sit down & kick my feet up, I wander off to another place
Where Peter Pan is my guide ... whimsical & free
So many memories of the life I've lived & the experiences I've had
Some people only dream about doing some of the crazy shit I've done
If my Mother were alive, she'd be shaking her head
Now I understand why with two daughters of my own
It's now my job to be a Listener and allow them to speak
Without fear of judgement, ridicule or shame
For they are my blood, two of my proudest achievements
Although I've never looked at being a good Mom like a gift
Until I lost my own at such a young age
She was a Listener ...
As each generation evolves, the ones who come behind
They try to improve on what they learned from their own parents
And integrate what works for them & toss out the rest
Where am I going with all of this you might ask?
My rants are constantly unravelling as they're so knotted & tangled
So as I rant each and every day
Try and understand I am trying to untangle & discover who I am
I'm trying to uncover me & and in process 
I want to evolve into the woman
I am supposed to be ... 
To live my life as the woman I was destined to
The writer in me is dying to come out ... 
I'll be honest up front, my grammar sucks
I never liked English, I preferred to just 
Say it & write it the way it needed to be 
Blame it on the 'Sag' in me ... that's my excuse
Maybe one day the puzzle pieces will 
All be laid out for everyone to see
It will be up to each individual reading to interpret 
What I've written in a way that suits them best
But this is me ... complicated & stubborn 
Passionate & determined as I can be
Most recently introduced to a life-changing book
I owe the author a ton of gratitude for being able to write a book
That spoke directly to me ... to my very core
It was the moment I knew, I too, had to share my story
Not because I have a better story, I have a different story
But our drive & determination are qualities we share in common
So I figure ... if she can, So Can I !!
And with that I am off ... it's My Time ...
Time for me to uncover the gem that just needs a bit of polishing
Well ... maybe more than polishing ... if truth be told
But I am willing to try ... I need to try ... I want to try
Not that I want to re-do my life, I'm at a place where I'm as happy as can be
Things are changing ... 
Things are coming together ... 
In so many different ways
I know the Universe is speaking to me ... 
And time is ticking
It's time to explore and see what this world has in store for me
It's all an experience, an adventure of sorts ...
So this time ... I Want To Dance!
Care to come along & enjoy the ride?
