I thought I knew you, open heart, a man of risk.

Your eyes spoke of hope, a child like wonder, together we would fly.

We ran, we dared to dream

Wide open and unafraid I ran toward the cliff, the moment had come

I leapt, arms wide open off into the unknown

A sense of wonder and excitement overtook me.

I glanced to my left and to my right

You were no where to be found

I looked behind me, and there you stood

Head down, alone on the side of the cliff.

I tried to go back, to grab hold your hands and take you with me.

You turned your back, just out of reach.

I wept, alone, betrayed

You made your choice.

And now

I fly


But  wait! I am not alone!

Surrounded by a new sense of adventure

What’s this in the distance? There are others! They too leapt

We fall into formation, unity and a deep knowing.

We are headed home


A peace floods my soul, yet sadness lingers.

Mourning for the ones

who refused to fly.


About Amalia

My name is Amalia, I am a survivor, but I am not simply surviving here. I fully intend on living life to its fullest everyday of my life. My past does not define me, it is simply a part of me and a contribution to who I am becoming. Fully awake, fully alive. Love is my religion. I enjoy meeting new people from all different walks of life. I love engaging in deep, meaningful conversation with others. I believe we each have something to add to anothers life. I love Jesus. And the way he interacted with people, especially the outcasts. I sometimes feel as if I am a very old soul born hundreds of years too late. But am realizing I am right where I am supposed to be, there are no accidents. I cherish those who love and accept me for who I am, intensity and all. Who love me for me, not who they'd like me to be. When I love, I love deeply, when I hurt I hurt deeply, I can feel others pain, an empath, but I would not change a thing. My 'story' has molded me into the person I am today and I like me! I am deeply moved by early morning sunrises and evening sunsets, by flowers, bugs, the changing seasons,barefoot walks in the woods, the wind in my hair and the sunshine on my face. I love capturing these moments with my camera, as well as trying to share the emotions attached on canvas. Music is my drug of choice. It soothes me when i'm feeling down or overwhelmed. I am drawn to other creatives and out of the box thinkers, the misfits, outcasts. I love to laugh and make others laugh. Laughter is amazing medicine. I have ADHD and it shows, I am currently....LOOK A SQUIRREL! I have a very strong sense of justice and nothing angers me more than seeing others taken advantage of or harmed, especially in the name of religion or by those in authority who use their authority to harm or control others. I am childlike, yet intense and will fight for those I love until the bitter end. But i've also learned that I cannot save anyone else and have learned when to let go. Because that too is love.
