Conceived by Brenda-Lee Ranta

It was never a choice
with each lie
each indiscretion
each breach of trust
boundaries crossed
selfish needs

planted, seeded fears
lines blurred by tears
confirmed by years
with pain that sears

Life lessons pile up,
the end result
is that you never
truly mattered

It was never a choice
to be deemed blind

Was it ever a choice?

Excerpt from the book Heart Sounds

Heart Sounds by Brenda-Lee Ranta

Awareness speaks within me, slowly, in each new day. I was not cognizant of it in real time; but in retrospect, I am astounded by the various ways in which I have grown and evolved as a human being. Conversely, I am also aware of where I have fallen from the ideals I held for myself.‘Heart Sounds’ are daily murmurs my heart has spoken to me through my daily writing. The result is a chronology of my emotions, my epiphanies and transitions; written from this woman’s heart. I am a work in progress, as we all are.
