Guest Post: Charlie


Our next guest poster is one of my very best friends, Charlie, from Veteran Artist.  She
is truly my soul sister and one of the most beautiful writing voices I know.  She is married
to Vinnie and together they are raising two sweet little boys.  Recently, Charlie published
her first book, "The Face of a Memory" and I could not be more proud of her for not
only chasing her dream, but making it a reality.  Visit her blog today and learn more
about this amazing work of written art!
“No man, for any considerable period of time, can wear one face to himself and another
to the multitude without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the truth”.
–Nathaniel Hawthorne
 A poem by Charlie:
Experience
I am the witness
From husband to father
From boy to man
Story told
Battles unfold
Layers           
Insults
Injuries
Justification
Complication
A spirit that resides
Excitement
Warrior
Guided
Full circle
Love
Softness in place of what was hard
Hardness in place of what was soft
Remembering
Forgetting
Forgiving
Loving
The promise of the past not coming into the future
And the promise that the future wont forget the past
The eyes of a child
The strength of the father
The touch of a mother
The building of a tribe
