I have labored long and hard to avoid confrontation. It has become my cause, so to speak. However, no matter, what I do, I can run, but I can't hide. I am convicted regardless of the facts. I am judged without benefit of trial, muchless jury. And I am pounded for things which I do not commit. Or say. Or even think. WHAT IS THIS? Why is this persecution, ever before me? I am no one special. I do not deserve all of this attention. Surely, someone else is more deserving. Even wanting. All I want is to be left alone. I long for peace. I harbor no ill will or grudges toward anyone. Not my ex husbands, whom I have made peace with, in my heart. Not the people who pretended to be my friends and then lied and betrayed me. Not family members, who I have come to realize do not really know me at all. I have forgiven any and all slights, some real, some imagined, I am sure. Yet, it isn't enough. Blood, is what they cry for and will not be apeased until that end is realized. Why? What has turned their hearts toward me in this manner? What in the world have I done, to have come to this end? Except that it doesn't end. It just goes on and one. Ad nauseum.

Frustration Revealed
From pain comes wisdom, listen to the voice
that speaks from within and no one can take
your joy. Give no one your power and honor your
self regardless of flaws. Keep using that sounding
board of words, for yours spill out well.
