AUTHOR D.L. FINN IS BLOGGING WITH US TODAY!
Welcome Author D.L. Finn! It is a pleasure to host you.
Thank you for having me on your blog for day six of the Just Her Poetry Spotlight Tour!
- I live one-thousand feet above a small Gold Rush town, Nevada City, in the forest.
- I’m not a morning person, and sometimes I don’t fall asleep until the sun is rising.
Take a journey with D.L. Finn as she blends her love of nature with her deepest emotions. Sit with her on the forest floor observing its tranquil beauty, or stroll along the ocean’s shore admiring the vastness of its horizon. Here in these peaceful moments you’ll be able to experience her thoughts and feelings in the light—and in the darkness. This is a thought-provoking collection of poetry that invites the reader into all the seasons of a soul.
Excerpt from Just Her Poetry: FROM THE BOOK WORLD
(inspired by The Button and This Second Chance)
You’ve been called stupid and ugly many times—it still hurts.
The words wound you deeper than any hit or punch.
Each slicing remark cuts deep into your soul.
It disfigures you until you are as twisted as the abusers.
No one is there to tell you that you are loved.
That you are beautiful—you are wanted.
Instead, the ignorant utterances hit you faster than a fist.
Each day you have one less tear to cry…
Until one day the tears are finally gone.
Numbness replaces the pain and you’re locked safely inside.
Your walls thick and strong until one day…
Someone reaches out to you and you push them away.
They don’t leave. Instead they show you kindness.
Slowly you replace the numbness with pain, then healing…
With that caring someone who’ll accept your unshed tears.
This is what’s been missing in your past: love and acceptance.
They fill the hole left by abuse, leaving only your beauty.
