Extraordinary Through Grace

Report Story

Sweltering in a Blazing Glory

She painted herself with words and let the oxygenated fresh air of the words of wisdom fuel the fire within

Unorthodox and peculiar they called her

Instead of conforming to the box that society slaved within she emerged gracefully

Always weird

Always different from the world

Yet created her to be extraordinary

Although she dodged the lashing from two-edged swords from time to time

Spheⁿ rose above it all

Letting her love for life guide her next step

Intuition and prophetic dreams became an essential part of her being

The more she cried forth

The stronger the dreams and intuitions became

Through confession and repentance her soul renewed daily

Growing stronger and stronger

The flames were higher and higher

Sweltering in an blazing glory.©

Guys, I am a performer, singer, and writer. Earth has been extraordinary for me. Hiking through this place is intoxicating. Music, words, and fire feul my existance. I have two associates degrees. Completing the third is a task in it's own.
