George Hodan Woman
George Hodan

my only sustenance will

be God

i will be free

to love and care with

out being bothered by

society’s condemnation

and shame of my

thoughts and


i will soar like the

eagle in freedom





abandonment as

none of it will affect


ever again





as i peel the layers from

my onion

i am

finding this all

to be the true

“Poetry Prompt:

Write for ten minutes asking yourself this question – What if you stop trying to be who you aren’t, let everything that isn’t you drop away, and embrace the real you?”~Morgan Dragonwillow

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I love the image of the soaring eagle and the peeling of the onion and how you make the juxtaposition between the two work so perfectly that I am left wondering why I ever thought they didn’t go together. They support and deliver your message of hope and empowerment perfectly. 🙂

  2. this picture reminds me of the scene where in the movie “Gandhi” he climbs the stairs of the palace in delhi, the capital of the soon-to-be exiting british colonial power. the native son of india, the little fly had conquered the English lion and was humbly climbing up those majestic steps in his humble loincloth and walking stick. the world had turned.
