Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry


I need peace – Peace I need
Repeating over until I succeed 
I need peace – Peace I need

 Carisa Adrienne 

I’ve whispered this prayer for as long as I can remember. Some days only a handful of times. Other days whispering it more than I can count.

The past week I’ve whispered it thousands of times. My heart is heavier than usual when I watch the news. Experiencing so many feeling hopeless.

I believe everyone deserves peace and security. I believe two wrongs don’t make a right. Mourning a loved one is an emotion that cannot be defined.

The past week I’ve had this song on repeat. Where is the love? ❤

  7. Love starts within ourselves and spills to others. The world is senseless now, yet you have post like these and other beautiful happening that if we listen and see the everyday kindness there is then we would be overwhelmed by these acts of kindness. Look and see and become aware.

  8. I am right there with you on this week. It has been tough watching the news and praying everyday I don’t wake up to another killing. I hope we have reached a point where constructive dialogue and action will now be taken…BY EVERYONE!!!!

  11. It’s there. The sad thing is that one bad act causes so much pain. But we mustn’t forget that there is so much around too that causes smiles. Bad and sad things just scream so much louder. One day they will be gone too and we will all stand hand in hand. I believe it so strongly! But we need to keep up spreading love and not acting like the ones that spread the pain 💖

  13. I wonder how you might feel if you change it to “I am peace.” When we state what the goal is to ourselves, we can then make choices that get us there more easily, I find. ❤️

  15. You are so right, my friend! I think it is important to remember the words Dr. MLK during this time. Beautiful reminder, Carisa!

    • Dave, I’ve always been fascinated with MLK. When I read his words I feel a sense of peace. Watching/Listening to his speeches gives me goosebumps. He’s filled with wisdom and compassion. Love. Love. Love. Your comment here. Maybe they need to play his speeches on tv to remind us of his wisdom and leadership. ❤️

  20. pain comes on
    they say we want you back
    you never had me
    just toyed with me
    for you
    i know you are blue
    at the loss
    my hope
    is that you
    more than cope
    living on and without
    her or she!
