Deeper into the darkness and night,
My security has taken flight.
When I crave adventure and provocation,
I slump down and lay from exhaustion.
When I should have taken action,
My body chose distraction.
A captive of fear,
Tortured by my author,
Begging for an end to my insanity,
Bargaining for the ending of my agony.
A character in a story,
My life, a book without category,
Friends, written in without warning,
Without ability for conforming,
Our artists left us unfinished,
Our full potential diminished.
Rise above the cages of imperfection,
Lose the chaos of deception.
Lead with your flaws,
Let your voice be the applause,
Run through the crowded streets,
Sing of your lack of defeat.
Break free of the canvas you're painted upon,
Know that your life is not foregone.
Let Winter be your birth, not your death,
Leap out of your story, take that first breath.
You're strange, and different, and wonderful,
Your first steps are the echo of the thunder,
Your voice is the song of the rain,
Which no artist can attain.
Your song is sung,
From the page, the words have sprung.
Free from your cage of fear,
Let others talk and sneer,
You are of a remarkable kind,
To which the world is blind.
Let them see with their hearts,
Each will only play their parts.
No more a puppet on a string.
Be heard, let your passion sing.

It's funny how hard we try to fight the tides of change. The harder we swim away from them, the more we sink below the waves. In the last year, the ocean of life kept crashing upon me and my family. My husband was in a car wreck, we couldn't pay rent, I hadn't been able to find work, and we were forced to swallow our pride and ask for help. The help started when we moved in with my parents. Although my father and I don't see eye-to-eye, we were able to grow and improve on our strained connection. My mother was overjoyed with the chance to have her grandsons living with her. It was hard, at first. However, we've grown accustomed to life with my parents. We still get to enjoy the simple pleasures, while working to get back on our feet. My son's are growing fast, and more and more intelligent. My little Elflings are three and one this year. I don't know what we would be doing now or where we would be, if my parents hadn't been so generous. Almost a year has gone since we've moved in. Although, most people would be ashamed to say that they live with their parents. At times, I am ashamed. But most of the time, I am proud. They help me and my little family, and We help them. It's not perfect, but our life is getting better. My husband has a job, much closer to home. I work at the child care center that my three year old attends. My one year old stays with my mother in the day, helping with her business of rabbits (no, really. She raises rabbits). And my husband is also attending Tech School to earn his certification in HVAC. I know, it will be another while to go before we're able to handle life on our own once again. This time, I hope that it's when the tides push us to it, not away from it. When it comes to that term, "Go with the flow", we really should evaluate the flow. At this, I am happy to say that I've gained a deeper connection with my parents and have found a newer appreciation for my husband. 

I don't remember when I was able to sit down and browse DA. It's been such a long time. With work, kids, and giving a helping hand, I've kept busy. From all of this, I am starting a small business, which will start up on Etsy (I'll update with details once it happens.), that will be specifically for my hippy outlook on life. I have also been challenging myself with writing and my art skills. At this point, anything is possible. 

    So, I say to all who reads this...
        Don't blindly go with the flow. Evaluate and research the tides of change. If you have a choice, make a logical one. Don't think about what may be, think about what is. Following your dreams is one thing; chasing them blindly is dangerous. Walking down the path to your dream life, ensuring that you're doing the work to get there, while researching other options, will assist with a happy outlook on this vast ocean of life.

My name is Luna, I am the writer, artist, and dreamer. I am hyper at times, dead still at others. I can take a joke and dish one out as well. I love art in all its forms. I love to travel. I love to travel without moving. I love to experiment with different types of art...
