Just Cracking Myself Up!

I should be sad, but I am not. I have slowly gotten news from all my stops along the way to Texas, they have had to cancel for personal reasons, and from being unsure it would work out if I was in the area. It will be fun when we all can get together, but I am okay. My trip is postponed for now. I need to be seriously working on my newest book. I already began the second book, but I am not even finished with the first one. A trilogy it will be...yes, liken to Twilight and others.

While coming up with an idea for a book for my family once the genealogy was finished, and after watching Clash of the Titans, something came to me...sadly at 2 AM in the freaking morning. My sleep is off again. Stomach issues and napping do not work well together. ARGH!!! But hey, I get some writing done.

Yep, when I think of how different I was than my siblings growing up, and how my brother (don't all brothers say this to you!) would tell me I was adopted. Making me cry, and scaring the crap out of me was his pleasure.

I know it still needs work...but is going to be part of 'My Valley of Kings' Mini-chapbook collection.

Hades On A Good Day

Growing up felt like hell,
I really thought my parents
had adopted me...

------------- (middle section poem taken down for submission purposes)

a grandmother mirrored in me
a son’s face straight from Scotland
I am a fair princess, hidden
amongst peasants.

After reading this aloud to hubby; it really cracked me up! Oh well, if I cannot laugh at myself, then who...Let the summer games begin...I am turning 50 in less than two much fun ahead!

This is great! We all have to laugh at our childhoods. If we don't they start to rule us as adults.
I love your last two lines...
"I was a fair princess, hidden
amongst pheasants."
We should all feel so right about being "different".
You go girl....

Ms. C., that is exactly where I crack up as I read it over and over...I even see my own brilliant writing here :)

Thanks, and much love...

Nice. I remember at some point in my teens actually being happy and certain that I WAS adopted. I wasn't.

pheasants? why not peacocks or any other kind of bird - is pheasants the word you intended or were you thinking "peasants"

now the question is will you post my comment or will you change it and never post my comment??
