DISABILITY

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 13, 2015, 12:00 PM
Skin by NorthBlue
Subject


Today I received my Disability notice in the mail.  I was afraid to open it, as most people get denied first time they file.  I was one of the lucky ones as after opening the letter I saw that I qualified for disability.  I received a big check with it, which paid me back 1 year as it was 1 year ago that I became mentally ill and was let go from my job.  I will receive checks every 3rd of the month as long as I remain disabled.  I also qualify for medicare which means I will have insurance for my health needs.  This is a great burden lifted off of my and my wife's backs as we have been scraping by just to make ends meet.  Now with the chance for better health care I am hopeful I can better combat my illness and get back to how I used to be.  
I got to talk to my friend Jewel yesterday, and all I can say is what a dear friend she is and how much having a friend to talk to means to me.  Thank you Jewel for being the sweet friend you are.  
Finally I stand with the millions that condemn the murders at the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo. Freedom of speech is a cherished right to all of western society and in some Muslim dominated countries as well.  Let your voice be heard "Je Suis Charlie"... 

 My continued prayers to my friend Samira, Birgit, Dee, Chas, Selina, and Flori :pray:

To my friends and watchers I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week ahead... :icontimmy64plz:

POETRY CORNER

:iconsharkitty:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :iconsharkitty:

H e rYou trusted her alone,
but at your feet,
a pile of skulls.
She has become
a monster,
a demon,
a being filled with
rage & sin.
Though whatever you do,
however she seduces you,
don't let her in.
Surely,
you wouldn't let her win.
Or,
do you love her that much
you'd let her feast upon your soul,
and pick her teeth
with the remains
of your useless,
worthless bones?
B r o k e n
I
You claim your love for me
hasn't burned out,
that you're hard on me
because you need me
& I'm sincerely beginning to get feelings doubt.
II
Pale & bruised,
the description another
has told me
about my skin,
yet I still won't
let them in.
III
A twisted grin,
& a clawed hand upon my chin.
Another night of abuse,
I swear I'm close to
tying a noose.
IV
Pale & bruised body,
hangs from the ceiling,
So sick of the feelings,
so sick of dealing.
This is fates way
of concealing.
E t e r n a lThe temperature
is {s e v e n}
below {z e r o}
You know,
the type of
bitter cold
which can freeze your {b o n e s}
& make even the r a w e s t of souls
groan.
Then I saw y o u,
in the midst of
a b a r r e n, f o r s a k e n
road,
& my walking became
m o r e & m o r e slowed
You then held out your hand,
knowing e x a c t l y what you had planned.
The offer of eternal love,
something I wanted to
so deeply be
apart of.
I knew then,
you were
the one I could
call {h o m e}
& never again
would experience
what it's like
to be {a l o n e}
L i a rYou are
a liar
which hides behind
a cracked
& crumbling mask.
Soon enough,
you'll die by your own flask.

Your fairy is called Oak Goblinwitchgreen dragon animated avatar by ftourini
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in forests of oak and lime trees.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She decorates herself with leaves and berries. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.

My favorite author is Bart Ehrman, a professor of religious studies at NCU.
