Buried Deep

her feet buried in a deep, deep soil of grief and self-doubt. a larva cocooned so long, afraid to break free, to break out. until the wind of change made her shell dance, wiggle, wriggle, jiggle, wobble, shake, bounce. life's gonna hurt but it's meant to be felt. come out now, free yourself, be brave. — P.S.… Continue reading Buried Deep


helium-filled balloons float up, up, away from the dust of the waiting earth, to kiss the sky's welcoming mirth. why do we find it hard to be like the cheery balloons-- happy when we're being let go? maybe because we prefer attachments over freedom. — 03.28.2017 ©2017 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer. All Rights Reserved.
