About SimmerDownChick


I am a daydreamer and a realist. I am pacifist but not a shrinking violet. I speak my mind when I need too and I don't believe everything I hear, so I will always investigate before formulating my opinion.
I believe that we are spiritual beings living a physical existence. Life is a path with many forks in the road, take the path that makes you happiest. People fail every day doing things they hate. Do something you love and take a chance.

I agree there are probably more bankers, and a hella lot more white male politicians, but I doubt ALL of them are...I'd say, men and women in high places are the ones hurting us the most

Hashtag, Me Too

She hides in plain sight A hint of melancholy on her face Once happy and free  She is now lost in the prison she's made in her mind Walls she has built with steel and stone She makes jokes and laughs Inside she is dying Her pain betrayed by a painted on smile Shame, pride, and humiliation in disguise "She dresses like a whore," she wanted it more "She went there alone," she deserved what...

I Was Almost Abducted By a Serial Killer

In 1986 when I was 23, my parents divorced and my mother, brother, sister and I moved to the city of Fontana which was about 30 miles from where I grew up.  We were really struggling just to keep the lights on in those days, so I began to work full time at a Jack in the Box, about five miles from our home.  I couldn't afford a car, so I had to walk to and from work, along two roads that...

The Darker Side Of Old St.Nick

It's quiet, is somebody there? Is anyone beneath my stairs?   Snow is falling Winter is here Is that St. Nicholas That I hear?   A Little elf invades My home May perhaps   He's just a gnome?   He creeps around While I'm asleep If he gives What does he keep?   Nothing is ever given free I wonder what The trade must be?   He gives me gifts And I give back A covert...

Serendipity Two: Destiny

Twenty-four hours previously ooOoo “Good day, sunshine,” Pete sang the Beatles song to Tara in a slight whisper, gently waking her up in the late hours of the morning. The marine layer kept the beach city overcast, and the breeze of the cool September air felt good on her tired body. “Hey beautiful,” he said softly, as she rubbed the sleep from her eyes. “Eggs, bacon, toast or yogurt?”...

It was his birthday, but not even the sunshine of a beautiful day could cheer Pete up. Thirty-three years old and still single, he was re-evaluating his life choices and mourning opportunities that he had sadly let slip by. Of all his failures, he knew that nothing was worse than losing his high school sweetheart. She was tall and slim, a delicate beauty with blue eyes, brown hair and a...

Lost Forever

I miss you in the dead of night the soulmate that I'll never know I miss you in the morning light the love that I can never show I've waited and I've stopped to look a secret, an unfinished book a whisper in somebody's ear the thought, the overwhelming fear what could have happened,  why did you go? someday I would have loved you so If I could, I'd make you warm, and simply hold...

September 11th, 2001

If I let myself, I can remember everything about that morning. It's a very painful thing to look back on, but every year on the anniversary of this day, we will always be reminded of the brutal attack that killed so many unsuspecting Americans. It was a Tuesday morning, and it was supposed to be my day off, but that soon changed. My mom and I had planned to go to my sister Margaret’s...
