They call me Alaurilee
- Serving Hugs on a Platter and Tears in a Teacup
- I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

"Sea of Faith"
I fell into a sea of faith, love and divinity;
hope, strength and tranquility.
The cool calm waters quench my thirst,
filling my soul, I long for more.
I wandered through life for many years,
struggling with just what to believe.
My heart began to drift . . . I struggled to hold on,
rocking away on troubled waters, trying not to fall in.
Sometimes I'd slip, taking a dip;
struggling to swim.
One day my troubled waters
parted right in front of me.
Before me I saw . . . I thought . . . a mirage.
A beautiful tranquil sea.
But it was real; it was faith and hope,
Healing washed all over me . . .
cleansing my soul of the pain and loss.
Cleansing my heart of guilt and regret,
forgiveness and a second chance.
For new beginnings . . .
floating today . . . in my new found sea of faith.
