I am…

I walk between the day and the night; the dark and the light
I maintain and uphold Universal Truth; even when it does not seem compatible with the truth of man
I am Justice. You may see my actions as harsh and unforgiving; but in truth I am unbiased and fair
I am Truth. You may not like what I have to say; but deep down you know my words ring true.
I am Balance. Without the night the day is too bright. Without the day the dark would devour all
I am Life. The reason for being
I am Death. The reason to begin again
I am Love. The gentle love of a mother’s hug; the raging passion of creation
I am the Warrior. I will do what must be done because it must be done
I am Compassion. I see into your soul and I understand; and I still love you for who you are
I am Forgiveness. For to live is to be human. To be human is to be just short of perfection
I bow to no one
I justify my actions and myself to no one
I am your best friend. I will be there when you need me
I am your worst enemy. I can destroy you if I have to
With one word I can raise you up to the highest peaks or destroy your very soul
I am to be feared. I am to be respected. I am to be given my rightful due
I am worthy of your unconditional devotion, worship and love
I can reach into the darkness and the light at the same time and keep my balance between them both

About ynnarie

Lynn Salisbury grew up in the rural town of McGrath, Minnesota. After graduating from McGregor High School in the mid 1980’s, she moved to the Twin Cities. Lynn spent her 20’s and 30’s working like the average person, never imagining the calling that awaited her. But those two decades of working, learning, growing, led to the day a friend challenged Lynn to write. Lynn met that challenge and never looked back. Now she draws from her life’s experiences and creative mind to weave stories. Stories about different worlds, different lives, different perspectives. If you ask her about her life, Lynn will tell you it’s been rather simple and sometimes boring. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that it’s been a bit more exciting than that. Lynn has done everything from designing clothes ranging from prom and wedding dresses to drag queen attire and everything in-between, became a registered, ordained Pagan minister in the state of Minnesota, to creating a group, on a social media site, of fans devoted to her favorite football team that has more members than most medium sized towns. Lynn still lives in the Twin Cities area, enjoying the changing seasons, spending time with family, working, and writing. She will admit she hasn’t found her genre niche yet, and she secretly hopes she never does, leaving the possibilities wide open for any type of story that formulates in her head, mixed with a bit of muse inspiration, to spill out into the written word. She writes what she would want to read, having taken to heart a piece of advice she once heard. And she feels blessed and grateful for the chance to share her stories with the world. As the mother of three amazing, beautiful and strong daughters, Lynn knows that even when the world seems the darkest, they are her light. And she never forgets what an honor and privilege it is to be their mother. “If you haven’t had your ‘a-ha’ moment today, you haven’t been paying attention.” – Lynn Salisbury
