The Drum of Life

Sometimes I wonder if this life I live is real.
I used to think me and the devil made a deal.
As long as I hurt others and kept my feelings inside.
I would be the one at the end alive.
Being cold to the world for so long made me realize.
That I was slowly beginning to die inside.
My heart was slowly stopping, my brain losing function.
My soul taken by evil through it's vacuum's suction.

 But as I rose this morning I began to see a new world.
I realize now that I am not the only girl.
A girl, a young woman, finally coming into my own.
Never will I feel that I am alone.
God has helped me take off the blindfold covering my eyes.
Revealing all of the truths and all of the lies.
The devil had me played for a fool for true.
Had me thinking that I'd never get over you.
The devil wanted me to lash out at my family.
The devil wanted me to have a mind unsteady.
But I found the light to lead me out.
So happy now I could scream and shout.
 I am free to fly and rise above it all.
God's love and support makes me feel infinity feet tall.
I am finally happy with who I have become.
I walk, dance, strut, and sing to the beat of my own beautiful drum.

Hope everyone has a great Monday. As you can see, I am taking a different approach to my daily outfit blogging style. I have been writing poetry ever since I was younger. However, I feel like that I have lost touch with my "poetic justice". So, I will spare you guys my boring posts about my day and instead share with you some freestyle poetry. When I say freestyle, I mean I am writing the poems as I type. Of course, I will save them on my computer to make sure no one just steals my material. However, I hope you all like this new style for my outfit posts. Let me know what you think of the poem :)

Also, I will be doing a feature on Sundays based on my weight loss journey hopefully. Thanks so much for the support of my "Runway My Way" post. I will have another one this Friday :) I am still doing Fall 2010 because it's still freaking cold here lol. Again thanks so much for the support!

P.S. I will actually dedicate a day a week to share my favorite music as well, because music influences my style :)


  1. I absolutely adore that blazer, in fact you have now inspired me to make it my mission to find a bold blazer! I enjoy how you paired it with coral, two of my fav colours! Thanks for your comment dear, I'm a new follower!

  2. I am in love with that banana-yellow blazer and the combination with the pants! Very chic!
    I like writing poetry, too! I have to get into it again, though!

    Also, I really appreciate your supportive comments. You make me feel like I have a cheerleader to help me through this tough time! And Yes, I will visit some places but I am not allowed to go out on my own in Colorado yet because I am on orientation! I can't wait until these two weeks are up so that I can get out and experience the cool places... and SNOW!

    You are such a good friend and I am so happy that you support me :)
