Tunnel' End

Recommended Posts

Guest Jennifer T

I peered deep into

That dank, dark place

Using only a beacon

To view all the space

There at tunnel's end

I saw the light

And journeyed onward

Toward that beautiful sight

With great cautious steps

That at first I did take

I then gained momentum

And quicken my gait

With hope deep inside me

That I dared not show

To all those around

Who did not know

But it welled up within

And then began to seep

Through cracks and holes

I could not keep

Sealed off any longer

The effort too great

So I just moved on forward

With only my faith

That the end would surely

Reveal who I see

And forever give freedom

To the heart thats in me

As I drew closer

The light revealed

More and more certainly

The things that I'd sealed

But when my hope apexed

As I drew near the light

I was quickly taken back

By a heart rending sight

A wall stood before me

Most solid and true

With a mirror attached

And no single way through

The 'light', it appears

Was nothing more

Than reflection of the beacon

Id shone out before

The vision it seems

Was no more than 'me';

The one that Ive known

Since I was three

So here it all ends

I can journey no more

I lay my heart down

On the cold damp floor

And I cry a tear

For all that was lost

On the way toward something

That was too great a cost

I rest now in slumber

I'll not rise the least

Here in the darkness

I may finally find peace.

That is a beautiful poem dear. I would say only this about the last three stanzas…. That "me" can now be expressed and not hidden. In that alone i have found joy while i accept what has been given to me. I'm not ever going to be what i feel i should have been but i am finding contentment with my life. Hopefully you may find the same.

      I usually find my clothes at old navy or maurices. I pretty much only wear old navy jeans. Kohl’s is another good place.

      I am one of those who react strongly to perfumes.  Sometimes, it's like getting hit in the face, ans some products can cause my eyes and sinuses to burn.    I always try to use unscented products if I can, and I don't use perfume.  With more and more places going scent-free, I can't justify using it.

      I have a very sensetive nose, can't even enter some perfume sections cuz it just hurts. Would have to evac sometimes from bus or train cuz somebody was extra generous. So normally just don't apply perfume, except for this one lotus oil perfume. Absolutely love it, but it's supposedly really strong, but no matter how little I use my partner can't stand it. Tells me he can smell it from across the room. So now I just use it to calm my nerves. Can't wear perfume otherwise.

      Once I do get to that point I will have it in a ponytail tucked under my hard hat just because my chances of it getting caught on something are very high. I won’t even wear my wedding ring because I have seen what it does to fingers if it gets caught.

      For jeans I buy tall boot cut from Old Navy (I’m 6’ 2”) . They go on sale pretty often and you can get them for under $20. They also have some of their tops in tall sizes. My wardrobe has mostly Old Navy.

      For many years I wore my hair down as far as the top of my hips. At work (sawmill) it had to be in a pony tail and under my hard hat. Got a lot of grief about being a hippie and then with pierced ears they could only whisper behind my back  because by the time I had both ears pieced the company had quite a few women and one openly gay guy and HR was on their ass about sexual harassment suits. So it was policed pretty well.

      Very nice.
    • Just Lee
      Yes, without a doubt, you're a great looking blonde and it goes beautifully with your complexion. 
    • Emily michelle
      I love the look. I really like your makeup I wish I was that good.
    • Emily michelle
      Well to update this my boss came up to me this afternoon and I need to cut my hair because I look “fagish” whatever that means. He said he can deal with it as long as I wear a hat or my hard hat.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Oh I do not take offense and I read through all of what you had wrote and found it very interesting.  I was just saying I did not follow it at this time as I am an impatient person and frankly I am also a tad overwhelmed in my own life with recent events unfolding extremely fast. I certainly appreciate you doing this as it can be a very helpful process for many of us.   Tori I do not understand this.  I do not feel what I had said falls into a brain dysphoria.  Perhaps it does and I do not realize it.  I'm always open for opinions and positive criticism.
