I thought you had potential.
I thought you were my friend.
I thought the years of torment and disgrace would have enabled you to appreciate someone who never once joined them.
I stood up for you, I guided you, I opened your eyes.
Life is terribly short, and no longer will I wait for you to graduate into adulthood.

When given the choice, I, Isis, life, nature, wildlife comes first.

    Beautiful image and longing write, fear and loss are the feelings, sensations that are present within you when you have both a desire and a belief that contradicts it. Finding your choice of excellence so fulfills.

  • Thanks Elaine:)
    It’s so much better to cut ties, and carry on.

    I am surrounded by so much light and love now, no longer will I allow this darkness take me:)

    Very powerful, striking image and words! Reminds me a bit of my last image. Yes, life is terribly short; a flower will bloom beautifully one day and fall shortly after as day and night spins the earth. Love the set-up with the falling red flowers and your fair white face as though life has gone from there to the flowers, which end up falling – you give your life to something, only to say goodbye to it and let the memories go.

  • the hardest part Mui-Ling is letting the memories go.
    I made up my mind yesterday. Seeing that owl gave me all the knowledge, wisdom and strength within.
    ♥ The moment that owl and I locked eyes, it was as if secrets from my deep inner being were revealed to me:)
