Repeating the Past




I remember it like it were yesterday.  After weeks of hearing my step mom telling my dad to “get rid” of me, I knew before I was told what was happening.

Tearing Down the Dam

Inside my body, you’ll find my soul
It’s a little bruised though, pain taking its toll
Like a dam in the river, bad energies stuck
Never leaving my body, always running amuck

I chose to ignore them, I chose to run and hide
Telling myself I was alright, to my own heart I lied
Now I take down that dam that I built back then
I have to go slow though, so the walls don’t cave in

At first it was tough, the water poured right out
‘I can’t handle this’, to myself I did shout
And although it’s still flowing and causing despair
I know I can handle it, I’m almost there

Could someone write
An entire poem about pink
Give me a minute
To ponder and think

Pink is the color
That girlie girls love
Beautiful and innocent
Just like a dove

Pink makes me happy
I’m sure it sounds silly
But want me to do something
Add pink……… No, really

A tomboy at heart
I never liked pink
I never was girlie
Not even a wink

A transformation happened
In my twenties somewhere
Started painting my nails,
Wearing skirts and ‘doing’ my hair

On my way through this change
I evolved and I grew
I discovered parts of myself
That I never knew

Those parts had been dirt covered
And held down by rocks
Once I spread my wings
I pulled them out of the box

The feeling was unique
I felt bold and so pretty
I came out of my shell
I became ‘girlie’ and ‘giddy’

Light pink is sweet
A dream color for a princess
Decorating her home
And making it the color of her dress

Hot pink’s a bit different
Energizing the room
It’s vibrance gives life
Make it the color of my tomb

Butterfly Princess Poetry


I thought I’d share the inspiration for my blog title…..Butterfly Princess.  When considering what this blog would primarily be about and what “unique” name I could come up with for my title, I considered my poetry.  Two of my favorite poem’s that I’ve written are “The Princess & The Dragon” and “Butterfly….Finding My Wings”.  Aha!  Butterfly Princess sounded great.
