Mesmerized Merciful Beauty in being And where love is, there is light And where light is, there is healing Warmth Wonder Bathed in love Be whoever you want to Be whatever you take hold of In your heart In your soul In your mind Just hold onto Do a cartwheel Dance around the house Bake a cake Snuggle your cat Run 10k Read a book Punch a bag Hike up a mountain Draw a picture […]

Poem

Transition into sleep Waking up eyes sticky Moving through the day As if I owned it   Transitions—in and out Of awareness At night At day   Transitioning into togetherness After breaking free Not so much transition More elemental force   Breaking free Thrown together   Liminal spaces In between The hours, the days, the weeks In between all of us   Are we seeking to arrive?

Relentlessly optimisticRelentlessly happy Give into your sadness with all your beingAnd let it run, run, down the river Give into your joy with all your heartLet your inner child embrace life again Give into your anger with all your mightLet it rage until your knuckles bleed Give into your love with all your SelfLet it grow, grow until it leaps onto others Be relentlessIn living this life of yours Just one ruleDon’t destroy anyone else […]

Told you

parental alienation / Poem

Told you not to poke the bear Told you not to eat the Cake Told you not to play with them Told you not to tread so loudly Told you not to love your dad Defended you against the bear Saved you from becoming fat Yelled at them for being mean Taught you how to be considerate Rewarded you for calling him names Never told you bear was friend Never told you cake makes happy […]

All Edges

Poem

I am always all edges Grating Scratching Upsetting Not fitting in I am always all edges Saying the wrong things Too much Too straight No filter I am always all edges Strong colours Strong bones Strong mind Strong willed I am always fighting Windmills Sometimes Enemies But they are mostly dead now Sometimes I wish For a little bit For a day or so I could just blend in Be a chameleon Pretend I know […]

You Can

You can know yourself Like the back of your hand You can love yourself With all your might You can shine a light Into the dark corners of your soul While holding a poker –Just in case You can forgive So generously As if your life depended on it –It just might You can kick Your own backside Gently but assertive –When needs be You can stand tall Within yourself With pride and humility And […]
