Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry

Rise Up



One more chance to make it right

Making promises holding on tight

No more tears or falling behind

Moving forward because I can’t rewind

Standing tall with one foot in the grave

Climbing out my soul I will save

Leaving my demons encased below

I’ve been forgiven time to let go 

Shedding my shame for the new me

Rising up……now I’m free

  4. Redemption is a beautiful thing, Dear Lady. 💗 sometimes our harshest critic is the voice in our own heart. Forgiving yourself and moving forward- that’s a beautiful concept. All my best, Carisa.

  5. Aw, Carisa. Really loved that line “Standing tall with one foot in the grave.” That line was so awesome. Let the new “me” rise up in all her glory and be free. Excellent work.

    Always lovely. You are the only person besides me that story boards with both videos and memes. I have to write two quick posts and will come back with an inspired one myself. I have to grab a few new memes. A song I have in mind already.

    It looks like you and Rachel could be sisters. I really felt your heart pouring out onto the page here and I experienced some of your emotions while I was reading. I do believe the voice that sets us free, as well as the one that holds us back, is the one in our own head. Keep writing. You are loved here.

    • Awe… That’s the best compliment. Don’t tell Rachel, though 🙂 she may not think so! I’m so glad you could feel my emotion. That little voice can be loud…
      I’m learning to make my heart be louder!
      😉 Thank you for the inspiring words ❤️
