The Real Me

Will someone ever come
and love me
Beyond their rose-tinted glasses–
the me that exists outside of their idealism.
I am more than just an idea.
I am human.
I am woman.
Flawed in all the ways you expect
Strong in all the ways you may find
Stubborn against the eb and flow of the current
You think I should exist in.
I am raw
and rough
and lovely
And altogether
To the pretty painting of me
you have on display
in your head.
Do not fall in love
With an idea
Birthed out of fantasy
And then be upset
when the flesh
and blood

The Right Way to Self Publish

by Zorina Exie Frey

“The Right Way to Self Publish is like the GPS. It not only tells you every twist and turn you will encounter on your journey to Self Publication, but it alerts you when you are about to be confronted with them. It even gives you traffic warnings so you know what to avoid.”

~David Kimball – Writer
