Worlds Beneath
I woke up, drenched in salt water, with the memory of a strange dream flowing through my mind in waves …
It began simply enough. The first thing I saw was the cover of a National Geographic magazine, with a splashy picture of a celebrity couple on a yacht looking relaxed and carefree. I remember thinking that it seemed more like a picture for the cover of People magazine than National Geographic, but I opened up the magazine anyway and …
Suddenly I become Kate Smith, the tall, smiling, dark-haired model with her handsome boyfriend on her arm, standing aboard the yacht, wind in my hair, the feeling of the ocean moving the deck beneath my feet. I am living the interview with the reporter who stands beside us and my life dances across the pages of the National Geographic magazine in my hands. Pictures of artistic, bohemian clothes I had modeled, my past achievements, etc. It is all there in brilliant colors and descriptions.
The reporter asks about a large, oval sapphir

Summer Night
Hundreds of fireflies
Fill the air around us
Rising on the perfumed air
Of a gentle summer night
My eyes wide, like a child
When I look at You
The beauty of Your nature
Surrounds me
As I gaze into Your ageless eyes
Discovering Your heart
In the symphony of the cricket’s song
I feel Your love
In the soft wind
That caresses my cheek
You’ve crowned me with stars
And stars are scattered
Across the gown of white I wear
As we dance, timeless
Forever

My Legs, Unbeautifully Beautiful
Roads and streets
In pinks, purples, and blues
Traverse my legs
A road map in spider veins
The journey of my life is written
In every step I’ve taken
Lightning splits the sky
Shining, forked, bold
Some people call them stretch marks
But I just know this
beautifully “unbeautiful” surface as
“my skin”

Beautiful Monster
Beautiful monster
Can anyone really see me?
Or are the lines on my skin …
Bars that conceal me
Like some sort of prison?
Will my soul be seen?
Because my soul is beautiful inside …
Just like yours is
I’m really just like you
inside
I’m a beautiful monster
I just want to be loved
Just like everyone else
I want to be

Faceless Soul

Seashell
a tiny shell
looks up at you
from the sand
you pick it up
and hold it in your hand
inside, sounds beckon you
the roar of a thousand seas
the intoxicating heart-fire
that made men seek new horizons
across miles of the unknown
the silence of the life
the shell once contained
is also inside
what will you hear?

A Vision Of White

a future that could be

Miracles
I might stand
as a shell
I might be
a hollow
full of the poison
you filled me with
but I WILL
look you in the eye, my foe!
I will win the day in the end
you shall not triumph over me
as the child David
took a stone in a sling
and slew a giant
so my hand
and the hand of One
who is stronger
will hold the sword
that will slay you

tore through me
all that you did to me

forever yours, always
The world can stop revolving; the universe could stop working
The world can just stop now; and I wouldn't change
The world can do what it wants; I will always feel the same
The world can try; it won't change my heart
The world can do this

It won't change how I feel
It won't change how I stand

It can try
It will fail
I won't change
My heart will stay the same
There it will stay

Forever yours
The universe could stop working; the world may stop revolving
The universe could just stop now; I still wouldn't change
The universe could do what it wants; I will still feel the same
The universe could try all it wanted; my heart is eternally yours
The universe could do that
The universe could do this
It will never change me
It will never change my heart
The universe may do that
The universe may do this

It won't change
My soul will stay the same
There it remains still
In your arms

Random Ramblings while Riding down the Road
Precipitous peaks peer patiently over
the humble hills huddling harmlessly close by
fading fast as I fly fearlessly along
the frenetic four-lane freeway
determined to deliver myself directly to
the doorway of the domicile
of my darling daughter

Cold
A pain that slips
beneath my skin
stiffening it from within;
piercing my nose
until it cries;
pinching my ears
until they rebel, then finally secede;
squeezing my fingers
so tightly that
they refuse to obey my commands
turning my toes
into wooden blocks which
trip me up as I shuffle along.
And yet
the cold air
creates a magical cloud
each time I exhale
and tints my cheeks
a beautiful rosy red.
It lifts my spirits
with hints of
adventure
waiting for me
somewhere just ahead.

Watchers

Activity


Today I lost my job.
I had a dog on the grooming table and was adjusting the grooming arm with the collar on it (before putting the collar on) - and the dog backed up and fell right off the table onto its back.

Thank God the dog didn't break its back and seemed to have no broken bones. It survived. Thank God.
But I still cried for about an hour after it happened ... in front of coworkers ...

What a sweet dog it was ... I'm just so sorry that it happened and so glad that the dog is alive and seems to have no broken bones (it was standing up and walking around afterwards). I'm terrified that the dog might have been hurt even though it didn't seem to be.

I resigned before they could fire me.
Walking away from the grooming table with a dog on it is an automatic termination, and though I didn't walk away from the table and I was within arm's length of the dog, I took my hand off the dog's back for a split second to adjust the attachment to the grooming table so that I could get the safety collar / groomer's helper collar on the dog, and the dog scooted itself off the table before I could get the groomer's helper collar onto it. I feel terrible. I'm not sure when I'll ever feel better again, and I have no idea what I'll do for a job after this. But I'm so deeply thankful that the dog is okay.

A job ... finding a boyfriend on a dating website ... those things can sort themselves out ... but thank God that dog is alive - and I pray that it is not hurt.

United States
I am an AMK (adult missionaries' kid) who grew up in the Philippines. It was an amazing place and time and had a significant role in shaping the person that I am today. I still kind of consider myself as belonging to that country even though I live in the U.S.

I am currently in the process of moving forward toward various goals to try to minister to victims of sexaul abuse. I am writing songs, a book of poetry, and a novel on this topic. I feel such a deep calling in this direction. I want to help them.

Current Residence: in a land far, far away
