A life in threes

MfL, Eight: Scar-lip

“I know many are not too fond of the stories when it comes to the sewing of Yours Truly’s lips, or of my binding, but it is still all a part of who I am. If you want me, you must face and receive all of me. You will face pain and difficulties in your life, but it is only temporary. It is to shape you. Prepare you. You may even be confused as to what is going on and may wonder if you’ll ever get out of it but know this… you will break free. Breaking free the thread that kept you from speaking your truth. Breaking free from the bonds that held you back.”

MfL, Seven: Tenacious

This poem seems very Loki-esque to me — especially when one considers Loki’s association with dandelions:

“Let them try to stop you

in every way they know;

Even if they poison you,

Cut you down,

Uproot you,

Burn you to ashes,

Bury you deep,

And pave over the place

where you lie;

The weeds of your tenacity

will sprout through the cracks

And bloom.”
