Home Improvement

Your home is your castle,

Your body is your home,

And no, this is not a “make healthy choices,” lecture.

But an observation,

about the atmosphere of mine.

A quieter place

Now that some of the demons

Have grown and left.

Because their “parents”

Are toxic.

Self-doubt,

And fear of burdening,

Inherited from my neighborhood.

As old as they are,

They are twice as stout.

But I am still pulling up old wood,

To build a floor of confidence in my house.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
