Observations of an Invisible Woman

Sorry Seems To be The Hardest Word

Your pride is your downfall
Your Achilles heel
Working like a beast
To break down those walls
No thought to how I feel

“You’re the best…”
That’s all I ever heard
But for you
Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Content with malcontent
Happy being miserable
You drained me dry
And left me spent

Try, try, try
That’s all I ever do
You see what you wish
It’s all about you

Like a hungry beast
You gorge yourself
On my feast
No thought to
Me in the least

Old and gray
Angry and cantankerous
Is how you’ll stay

Never knowing true peace
Which suits you just fine
As you slumber and dine
With no peace of mind

I’ll move on
Away from here
With thoughts of you
Less and less clear
Which is exactly
What you wanted to hear

If misery is a female
Your cries and wails
Will draw her ever near
As you hold her dear

I coulda, shoulda ran the moment I knew
After all, you did tell me, didn’t you?
Stubborn to the core I stay and tried
You left me alone while I cried and cried

Vanity is your sin
Your cross to bear
You always win
You give in to your fear

“I don’t wanna be this way!”
Is what you say
But I do declare
If I may?
You love this shit
You live for it
Alive and well
In a tormented spell
Can’t you tell?

Anguish too!
According to you
What else would you do?

No more shall I wait
I’m done with you
Sorry seems to be the hardest word
Fuck you

Introducing Ajualuv: Store Envy

Ajua

First, have you ever seen a more perfect creature in your life? This very determined and ambitious woman not only has her own company:

And her own blog:
But, she also holds holistic health seminars, group art therapy sessions, promotes healing through crystals and knowledge of our chakras and, if that’s not enough, she will hopefully purchase a building filled with all-natural products to promote African Healing and self-awareness!
Whew!
How does she do all that and find time to sleep?

I am a writer and artist, the eternal student, always learning and growing along my journey, whether in a formal institution or sitting with Mamma Nature.  I hold degrees in the African way of life, Religion, and (man’s) Law from Tufts University, the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London), and Howard University School of Law.  I was trained in painting and art at the age of 7 by Mr. Joe Pinckney and continued my study of art at programs held at Cornell University and Parsons School of Design.  I am a Reiki Level II practitioner trained at The Reiki School and Clinic in Philadelphia, PA and Holistic Passages in Woodbury, NJ.

My love of travel began at the age of 13 when I travelled to Russia on the People to People Program.  I then lived in Belgium for a year on a Rotary scholarship as a teenager and in England for several years while working for the Africa Centre in Covent Garden.  I have visited over 15 countries.

Currently residing on Power Hill, I spend my days loving my King and building our kingdom, creating in the food laboratory and on canvas, reading and writing about metaphysical wonders, and practicing meditation and spiritual healing.  I continue my studies (both formally and informally) in metaphysical matters, energy healing, herbs, crystals, shamanism, the matrix, and meditation.

I use this blog as an accountability partner, a tool to help me be the woman I want to be at all times.  I write about listening to Mamma Nature and following her guidance on what to cook, cultivate and cleanse — Ajua

I stole a peek at her store, Store Envy and saw this:
