Oaks Of Splendor

Sharing My Life's Story And Things That Inspire Me

#Poetry Friday : Before I Found the Light Series

I found myself trapped,

torn down by my own belief

in the importance of other’s opinions.

Circumstances out of my control-

lead me to devalue all but

the importance in myself.

No blame is laid on the events-

which lead me here,

to where I am supposed to be.

Great, unimaginable strength

was gained from all this bitterness,

turned from a negative to a positive.

Now we are apart,

a friendship is over-

but no harshness or hurt is left,

only love and gratitude

for the things we did not see.

Upon deciding to blog about my life I decided that I would come up with a pseudonym, simply because it would give me the liberty to write things that I may not write otherwise. It's as simple as that. I want to have complete honesty about the thoughts that will become words to tell the story of my life, the opinions of my heart. E.V Nabors is also a homage to my roots, to my family tree. The oak tree standing in the forest of understanding; I hope it will speak out and inspire you. If I can do but one thing it is to help the robin into her nest.
