You Haunt Me: Two Hundred Thirty Four Days,
from Songs for the Dragon King, by Vivian Hadding

You haunt me Dragon King
I am consumed by your spirit
Your heart holds my soul frozen
No other can enter there save you
For you filled me with your promises of hope
Promises of faith and a love like no other
Pure with divine grace
Chasing the shadows of fear
The memories of pain
A bolt of lightning shattering
Ancient illusion and disgrace
But now you are gone
And the wind it howls within me
Lone and desolate
I hear the falcons cry
Feel the eagle's flight in the night sky
Silent and lonely, yet free and proud
The myth of the Dragon King dissolved

Song of the evening...Whataya Want From Me, by Adam Lambert
Still Marching On...
From Songs for the Dragon King, by Vivian Hadding

Woke up today...what's the matter with me
Tears spill over, can't chase them away

Been so strong, been holding on
Nothing's changed, things just the same

Clinging to faith, praying for grace
Wiping my eyes, hiding my face

But it's been so long, I'm still marching on

Thinking of you now and again,
No that's a lie...been everyday

Going to work, raising my kids
Being their Mom, being their Dad

Lord it ain't easy, don't want to mess up
But it happens sometimes, try as I might

It seems so long, I've been marching on

Studying hard, following my dreams
Is it so wrong to want to believe

Running in circles, feels like these days
Can't see the progress, can't find my way

Walking in silence, lest you should see
The hundred million tears I've shed for thee

But it's been so long, I'm still marching on
Yeah, it's been so long and I'm marching on

There are those that wish to forget and feel nothing thinking they can outrun the pain...and there are those that feel till it burns transcending their heartaches and find a new way. ~ Vivian Hadding

song of the evening....Flames, by Vast

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Plugging along trying to stay focused and not let life pull me down...studying at and off work for hopefully the next level...first stage guaranties but if you don't try you don't get. Divorce will be final in a few weeks. Its been such a long, hard, lonely road, no support from hubby ever for the kids and non to come...he ends up with all save our torn and tattered home, which hopefully come December I'll qualify for and I will be able to slowly but surely repair. I'll be borrowing lots of how to books at the library. Doing what I can and keeping my fingers crossed.
I'm still working on the illustrations for my Songs for the Dragon King graphic novel and studying writing, storyboarding and figure drawing amongst other things, to stay afloat mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally.
I've been teaching my daughter how to drive, next will be my son. I'm so proud of them for so many reasons, not the least of which has been their tremendous courage, maturity, wisdom and help through a very traumatic experience that has affected us all so deeply.
A hero's quest is never done and life is seems is a hero's quest for us all....
