Biography of Taunya Benns
Remember if you want to change your life and prosper; sometimes one must change their surroundings and acquaintances! Leaving your comfort zone is difficult; however staying in it could make the positive changes you seek futile. I have struggled with my own thoughts and issues for many of years laying blame to those that were in front of me per se; never realizing that It was I who allowed those I speak of the be in front of me! Taking my own advise has been one of my problems, I was unsure how to apply my words to my life for I felt that I was not worthy of the changes I wanted to see in the ones that I truly loved. This came from years of being told I would amount to nothing; upon accepting who I am a wonderful child of God, I began to use my words to better myself, and forgot that my words also assisted others. My “self” love has grown, I look deeper into the mirror than I had before, I see a halo of joy before me, a blessing that was lost, a medium of knowledge, an abundance of love, I see hope, a reflection that was never acknowledged before. Life is hard, and providing for a family as a single mother makes it much more difficult; however hope is a given, and faith is a gift. It seems as if it has taken me forever and a day to find the two, but I have found them. It would be my greatest accomplishment to assist another struggling soul in finding them as well…I write in hopes of showing that accepting the pains of the past, living through all the hardships and trials of the world, still finding HOPE and FAITH to be the outlet for all of your worries. There are many questions that we seek, however we fall short in accepting the answers that may be right there in front of us. A closed eye is a weak soul, and cannot see I have written from my heart and you shall see and hopefully relate to the pains that have been placed before me. Compiling my writings together has brought back tears that were placed in a box in my soul keeping me imprisoned for years, I am now free, and I would like to assist in freeing you from the prison sentence that you have bestowed upon yourselves. I hope my words bring tears, for I have found that tears are what have brought me hope, and the strength to better who I am, to know what I must do to find complete self happiness. Please listen to the words, and find your own strength to win over the darkness that you may feel within, let the pains and the sorrows heal you, if you can’t talk about them, think about them for God heard me, and his ear is open twenty four seven for all of us.

Remember Dear Child... I Am Always Near
I’m writing these words while I still know I can, while loving memories still process through my mind; I need you to keep this letter, just to simply remind. To remind you, that forgetting is nothing but a phase, for temporary loss of thoughts is nothing but a maze.
If Nothing Lasts Forever!
If nothing lasts forever, please consider being my NOTHING! Will you Smile when nothing is in site? For my love will you forever fight? Will you laugh when nothing is in mind? Will you stay my beautiful '1 of a kind? ' The sun shines
Where I'M In Faith!
Within a place that creates completeness in oneself, a place that needs no obstacles, a place that needs positive reaction, negative resolution, and stressful elimination:
Stilts to protect from the crimes of the past Nature pained
Happy I Must Seem
Rewind is not an option fast forward such a dream Tears gathered within my soul, happy I must seem Such a loving melody, as I caress the keys of life A slow whisper; it felt like a sharpened knife
Back To Reality
Perfumed pedals, tranquil moments erased. I press gently against the trunk of the old oak, firmly planted; yet the ground is unturned.
Are these tears of joy, sadness or pain; does the emotion within create nationwide rain? Snowflakes in the winter, ice from the cold; day in and day out my young tears grow old. Reaching and reaching yet nothing to reach; are these tears what created the quiet clear beach? The puddles in the ground, the rivers that flow; are they created from tears, I just do not know.
I came to you a simple child, in years it was not so; kept within a small glass box, not allowed to grow. You came to me with such loving words, to help me understand; what I call my life was nothing more than a script made from a man.
Let them know that the sun cannot play today, as she does not feel like shining on this place; let them know that the moon is sick and may not be awake tonight, let them know that the rain cannot come for it feels that it is kept to long by the pollutions of the air. The wind shall not come for it cries when the mess looks as if he is responsible.
