The Treasure Trove Award

These are my nominees for Danica’s Treasure Trove Award.

They are in no particular order of preference.

Many of the people on this list are frequent visitors to
my blog.

Danica’s award is an opportunity for me to say thank you.
to as many people as I can although my gratitude extends
  well beyond this list. 

If you haven’t seen Danica’s blog, now’s your chance:  Living a Beautiful Life

The rules are nothing.

You don’t have to do a thing.

The Award is a gift of appreciation.

THE LITTLE GIRL IN ME

Written by Ericka Arthur & Shaquana Gardner

So here it is…

The Little Girl In Me

Bright eyes and night cries

Sang the song of my

Childhood lullabies

Mirrors of beauty and pain

Reflecting the puzzled image

Of my young heart’s stain

Did they see it in my smile??

Feel it through my style??

Did they know the Truth??

The hurt buried inside of

The little girl who sadly,

Lost her youth

Shaquana Gardner @everythingshaquana

Your voice

An alarm,

A clarion call.

All take heed.

For I’ve witnessed her growth

No longer resembling

abandoned seed.

Cut down

Cut off,

Cut short and denied.

She’s fighting for self, past,

present and future

in the midst of those

who laughed as she cried.
