A prose poem in ten parts.

In many ways, I've been trying to write this for years and years. Today I finally just did it. I'm still not 100% happy with it, but it's as close as I've come to putting this into proper words as I've ever gotten.

Given 2013-11-02
In the prose poem Stories You Tell Your Children, "~SadisticIceCream"explores a controversial and deeply personal topic and handles it with elegance, honesty, and a marked lack of bitterness" (suggester's words). Thank you for responding respectfully. ( Suggested by LiliWrites and Featured by neurotype )

I've used your brilliant piece in a title poem, found here:…

I hope you don't mind! :heart:
Of course I don't mind, I'm honored! It's a beautiful piece. I've been meaning to try writing one of these myself. :D

This really, really speaks monuments about things I have so much trouble explaining. Thank you for sharing. 
Thank you you for reading and commenting, I appreciate it! :hug:

Just ran into this wonderful story.  I wish you luck with your recovery, many of us have had the same experience and you expressed it very nicely, especially the host wafer (LOL).

I also dropped by your page and read the New Year's piece.  The only advice I can give you on starting your life out as a new born grown-up is this.  Do as much as you can while you are young, travel, play, whatever.  Be adventurous.  It's going to get harder to do those things as you get older and settle into life.  And then there's children.  I'll shut up now.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving me with your lovely thoughts, I really appreciate you taking the time to do so. :hug: I'm definitely trying to make the most of the free time I have now -- I know it can be fleeting. :)

I think you have a problem more with the confines of this thing religion than with God -- the God you were taught is a very different God than the one I think he would want you to know he is. I am sorry for this, and I understand this situation. Thank you for sharing, I hope others will realize how blessed they are not to be alone, and I hope maybe the love from this community will help to alleviate some of that in you. Hug 
Thank you for your compassionate comment, I appreciate you taking the time to read this and leave your thoughts. :hug:
