A Picture Can Say Many Things aka Hair Cuts

A Picture Can Say Many Things Written by: Jill Sheets Picture credit: girl   Thinking about when I was younger, and what I put my mom through, this memory popped up. One that is not a good one for either my mom or me, but we can laugh about it now. I was not the easiest of children. Getting a hair cut was a nightmare for my mom and me.

It Will Get Better

It Will Get Better Written By:   Jill Sheets It hurts me that I cannot talk Not to sing. Only a whisper  Or a gravel voice coming out. I answer the phone at work No one knows it is me Or call me sir. I close my mouth quickly So I do not force out “I am not a guy.” Or “My name is not Joe.” Trying to find the humor in the situation There is none. My heart is crumbling with desperation. Trying to force my voice out To do what the speech therapist wants. My face Neck All of my muscles tight. Stress Should be a bad word. It only makes things worse. How am I suppose to distress? It will get better. Please God, Make it better.
