In the Shadow of the Son


                  In the Shadow of the Son

First born is a son.

Always placed number one.

Second place it is true.

I am always number two.


Failed at my purpose.

The sham was through.

The son was an accident.

I was number two.


Walked in the shadow

of golden boy blue.

One reigned supreme.

This girl number two.

Second best, second fiddle

Alone to ponder life’s cruel riddles.

In the shadow of the son.

He was born number one.


I’m not bitter at all. LOL

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
