Shaky hands, I know you are there.

Heart pumping, you are not who I am.

Shorter breaths, I accept you.

Unsteady balance, you are part of me.

You showed me, I feel you.

I have no fear, I understand you.

You made me awaken, you don’t define me.

Together we live, I am aware.

I surrender, you don’t scare me.

I let go, you came for a reason.

I overcame you, I choose calm now.

Goodbye, nor my enemy, goodbye, nor my friend.

By I found my voice

My name is Marie. At the beginning of 2021 I was inspired to write a book. So I did. Currently I am proof reading it. It's an amazing memoir/selfhelp book, It's written with heart and love. It's my story over the last few months with a sprinkle of my past and how, using tools available to me I was able to get myself to where I am now. So when I finished my book I immediately found a love for poetry. It seems writing is my thing. Being a Teacher for so many years, I believe has led me to this point.


  1. Thankyou for taking the time to read it. I wondered who may relate. Sadly, so many of us. I just would love people to know that it is there, but it doesn’t have to define us
