My 2016


Year of chance, year of love, year of heartbreak.

Love was lost as partners left,

Loneliness engulfed kids as divorce struck them

Leaving them longing-

Longing for a new beginning, one with love.



This year of heartbreak was 


The year of recovery.


Children became familiar

With the things they loved-

I declared I desired to pursue music education,

I declared "I will get through this," 

Into the face of depression.


I prevailed- I conquered.


Joining Cheer,

Becoming a drummer,

Auditioning for honor ensembles,

Never quitting at the game of life.


2016, I conquered.


Sincerely, Me.
