"Freedom is never granted. It is earned by each generation ... in the face of tyranny, cruelty, oppression, extremism, sometimes there is only one choice."
~ Hillary Rodham Clinton

I am Honored to be Awarded--

I was honored earlier this week with an award from Jean over at Jean's Musings..
She said to me that she always wonders where my inspiration comes from.. I can only say that life is sometimes more inspiration that I want.. I treasure each moment .. I think it often comes through in my writing.. bad days might bring out dark or lonely words and bright days will inspire funny tales.. Thanks Jean! I am truly honored that you enjoy my blog.. now on to the things I must do as a recipient of the award..

7 random things about me-

1-) I have seven siblings
2-) I love video games
3-) I raise chickens and quail
4-) I will do anything (almost) for my friends
5-) tequila is my favorite alcoholic beverage
6-) I was 25 before I drove legally

3Word Wednesday~

fragile, rampant, tremor

The Lie

I smelled it on your breath
long before was cast

I know it was not first
nor will it be the last

rumors rampant I stood still
as other backs were turned

a fragile bond we shared
if so easy it was spurned

a tremor shakes my soul
as anger makes me weak

I choke upon the words
that I feel the need to speak

I trusted what you said
I lifted you up high

But you tossed it all away
with the utterance of a lie

One Stop Poetry~
========================

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.. this week has been a busy one.. is it just me or does time seem to be going faster and faster?.. Some days seem so short.. never enough time to do all that I need to.. I thought about shutting off all of the clocks.. but I guess even that wouldn't help.. I welcome both comments and followers.. Have a great day!
Patsy

Lies are horrible, but you expressed the sense of betrayal very well.

Thanks! Amy Barlow Liberatore

They say there's such a thing as a white lie.At the end a lie is still a lie!!May it be blue or brown or colorless.

A truly good piece!!!

Great balance of emotion/language, great line breaks made it even better, more spare.

Sad how a lie can rip so easily and cause pain.

Love the way you wove these words

I agree with the faster and faster (make it stop)
