The Badge of Truth

Standard

hands

Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones…

My heart bleeds red tears of disappointment in those that pride themselves on wearing the friendship badge whose loyalty diminishes when one’s (I’m) down… BUT my soul delights in gratefulness for those that live in action of true friendship, true sisterhood and true brotherhood… Valleys don’t last a lifetime and through the experience I’m able to get a glance of the mountain ahead.  Give thanks for that hike in humility and sincere love in those appointed beings that never let my hand go.  Embracing their sincerity truly is the blanket that shelters from some cold situations this life can bring.  So love on those beings that still yet walk in the storms and tread the uneven roads and simply hold your hand and lend their ears.  Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you… Monique “1MOpoeitcSOUL” D.
