courtney alicia

transparent + true; a collection of thoughts


are we
the same?

pieced together
like a quilt.

different clans,
different names.

and yet,
we share dreams still.

tell me,
would we shine better
as separate lights

always passing
never meeting
but forever joined by change.

but truly,
’tis surely true
I see me better
because of you.

and I hope
that the same is true,
that you
see you
better too.

About Me

An English diarist and naval administrator. I served as administrator of the Royal Navy and Member of Parliament. I had no maritime experience, but I rose to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II through patronage, diligence, and my talent for administration.
