Reasons Why I Write #1

These here, are not just pencil and paper
Ways to capture bits of my story
Pieces of my very heart and soul
I write to praise His Holy glory
Without Him in my heart, my life
I'd still be pacing in the dark
His glorious light, His son, 
My savior, my eternal spark
These are not just words on a page
This is my documentation
Of a love like no other
My everlasting appreciation...

I Love My Freckles

Each speckle
Every freckle
Hand placed
By the steady hand of God
Added like
Decorations for her skin
Accents to His masterpiece
That extra special something
That made her face her own
Every speckle
Each freckle
Super sparkly everything
Right there for the world to see
Sprinkled on her face


There was a time in my life

When I ran from my femininity

After being molested as a child

Led to believe that it represented weakness

That it made me vulnerable, a victim

Years pass and wisdom grows

Healing with and through the embrace of

No longer ashamed

My femininity found in

Baggy jeans and pinned back curls

Mini skirts and high heels

Wild hair and red lipstick

Sweatpants and dresses

A smile, a stroll, a hug or a kiss

Power in the essence of who I am

My feminine energy is Spiritual

Intuition and Ambition

Pleasurable and Satisfying

Tender and Compassionate

Strength and Capability

Beautiful and Mysterious

Authentic and Unapologetic

Life giving and Indestructible
At this time in my life

I embrace all of who I am

Residing in my feminine energy

The more that we embrace the power of all

Of all of who we are

The more powerful we become

~Maria Milagros


Look fear in his eyes
And recognize
He is heartless and hollow.
And you,
Dauntless and full of depth
Have been practicing
Your entire life
Till this very moment
To win
Stare down.
Just a reminder that you got this.
It's scary and you still must Get Up!
