Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

my solitary path

A path I've always walked without a burdened care.
Alone or with someone I rarely gave a thought.
Whatever challenge made it's way into my lair,
I simply lived and tackled every thing life brought.

So now the path would bring me changes to accept.
Was I complacent to ignore the atmosphere?
I thought to travel and make peace with my regrets,
Enjoy my solitary path with love, not fear.


  1. Dixie, you are an accomplished poet. Your poems are exceptional. 'I simply lived and tackled every thing life brought.' This line immediately captured my thoughts - it's outstanding! And enjoying life with no fear - I only wish I could be that strong, Dixie.

    Loved this, my friend,

  2. Dearest M,
    You're so kind. It makes me happy that this poem had meaning for you.

    It may be hard living with the thing given us...whatever that thing may be. F.E.A.R. means, 'face everything and recover.' It is in my recovery from 'a person, place, or thing' that I learn empathy. I wish you peace and recovery from feeling fear.
