The Story that is My Life

My life as it has been and as it continues to unfold is a story. One story made up of many stories. One complex, yet simple story. One sometimes messy, but so beautiful story. One story that I wonder if it might be interesting to be told.

This blog is my attempt to put part, or parts, of that story into words, pictures, or whatever form my mind can wrap itself around or create from within myself to express what it is like to be the one inside Cindy's Story. This is an exploration on my part and on yours in reading, and seeing, and maybe even hearing. It is not necessarily chronological. It might not always make sense, but it is my expression. It is me.

You are invited to see how my story unfolds.....

Are You Okay?

Once upon a time I felt the way this poem expresses.  Just a simple question was asked of me, but there was too much within the answer to even make a truthful attempt.  

ARE YOU OKAY?
by Cindy Boersma

"Are you Okay?" you ask.

What do you want me to say?

I could tell you the truth:
I feel lousy 
I just want to scream
I can't get anything right.
I feel like I could explode.

But that's not what you want to hear.

So I will tell you.

Am I Okay?

"I'm fine thanks,
And you?"

Knowing that I felt this way back then, I think I will pause and listen for the real answer when I ask the question, "Are you Okay?"  I do want to hear the truth.  I do want to be the one that hears.
