These Hands

These Hands

I’ve spent my whole life avoiding grudges. I thought you were the only person who suffers because that other person really isn’t thinking one whit about your or your grudge. Then on April 17, 2010 I was hand delivered a justified reason to tightly clutch the hems of anger. There are people who will forever be different because of that day. So many people lost on so many levels. I lost more than a man. I lost faith, joy, security, comfort and the “pollyanna” chick in me who could always see a rainbow through stormy clouds. After that day, I walked in acid rain drenched attire with every step splashing into muddied declarations of doom — until I faced the honesty of the situation. It’s a bitch when someone you love disappoints you so deep that you can not retrieve yourself. This was my journey toward healing. Release. I may not see the rainbow, but I can recognize colors now. This is why I write. -SoKey

  1. I’m DONE!….I live my life by working towards being cognizant of people, places and things in my circle so that i consciously avoid taking those, it and them for granted. But never did I look at the power of my own hands that control so much. I simply thank you for the lesson. I have place in which to compare anything from this tragic experience of which you speak. But! Know this there is at least one pair of hands applauding your courage and talent.

  2. Once they walk in your soul, they will forever walk in your soul. It’s all we take with us.

  3. Hey there lady, it’s Sandy’s friend Treasy. I must have listened to this 10 times, and cried. I’m glad you wrote these words to express how you feel because it was necessary. It’s amazing how fresh and deep the pain still is… I miss Sandy so much and still cry as if I just got the news again, and again. I still think about your pain too…missing Charlie. I pray for God’s peace and healing to be delivered.
