Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry

Everyone Has a Body But Not Every Body Has a Soul

animals

I don’t want a beautiful chiseled face
But
Mesmerized by endless stunning grace

I don’t thirst for ferocious ecstasies to thrill
But
Hunger for compassion and good will

I don’t long for fingertips tracing flawless skin
But
Yearn for calming solace from within

I don’t drown in blue eyes deep as the oceans
But
Rise from bottomless humane emotions

Don’t let spellbinding desires be in control
Everyone has a body but not every body has a soul

I experienced struggles at a young age. The three places a child should feel safe is home, school and church. Those places were my prisons. The people dressed in kindness didn’t have  souls to match. I never felt stable and safe. I didn’t find comfort through my eyes but through my heart.

The silver lining was my heart searched for beautiful souls.

I believe I’m able to love deeper and more sincere. My heart is able to pulsate along with beautiful souls.

I’ve been in love millions of times. When 9 /11 happened, I fell in love with every single soul. I didn’t see every image of heroism, but my heart-felt their compassion. I still carry those feelings inside.

I’ll never forget the courage of the firefighters. When people were racing down the stairs, they were running up. Knowing the danger inside the towers, but their souls carried them. Many did not survive, but their compassion lives on.

I feel the same way about the valor of the military. My heart drums because of their courage and passion. They inspire me with their need to help others. Motivating me to help others too.

I’ve fallen in love with the beautiful souls on WordPress too. I’m moved to tears and smiles as I read your writings. I can feel the emotions you’re expressing deep within. I’m grateful for the beautiful writings shared. They have changed me in so many ways.

Thank you for inspiring me and helping me become a better person. Your heart beats along with mine. Reviving my body and breathing life into my soul when I’m struggling.

I’ve had a hectic few months and have missed so many posts. I will catch up very soon! Forgive me ❤

Much <3,
Carisa

  2. Wow, Carisa! This is not only heartfelt but deeply touching. When I read the title I wasn’t sure how you meant it, but I understand now. What you went through must have been destroying but you put your pieces together and created a beautiful new Carisa of it. One, who is full of love and compassion. I am happy to know the Carisa of today! You too are an important and touching inspiration for all of us. We all are growing and developing together and through each other. I am thankful for the insights and inputs I got through you! Lots of love 💖

    • Hector! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about you over the last few months. I’ve been so busy lately so I’ve not been on WP. I feel like I’ve neglected my friends. I hope you know I consider you a very dear friend. I’ve loved all of our conversations. Your kind soul helps so many everyday. It’s not just your profession, it’s in your bones. Not everyone can do what you do! I hope you’re doing well and your beautiful daughter too. Thank you for the kind words. ❤️

    nobody can feel what you feel or share your experience, we all have our unique ways in life and that’s what makes us who we are, and we can feel that in your texts , you have strong deep feelings to people and all events even small ones that makes life so enjoyable, keep being that way because that’s how life should be felt , sometimes it hurts , some others times it fills so much our way of life with happiness and passion. It’s strong and intense, really awesome. Such intense and touching words as you usually do. take care and be cautious, sending some hugs

  29. Oh my gosh, those two gifs are so cute.
    Carisa, I’m sorry that your safe places were actually prisons. I believe that we are a fallen people, and that there is nobody that always does good, but it’s so sad when you can’t find security in your family, or people of the same faith. I always mess up with my kids, but I always ask for forgiveness and tell them that I was wrong. I hope and pray that that action serves as an example for them, and allows them to feel free and safe.
    Please have a lovely week Carisa.
    🙂 ❤

    • Staci! Your words are always so comforting. Thank you for being a good friend. I’m so glad we’ve connected. I too always ask forgiveness from my boys when I fail. I think it helps them learn forgiveness and also to ask for it when they are in need of it. No one is perfect but if we strive to be better than the day before… I believe that helps. ❤️. Have a great weekend. 🙂
