Poem: Sharing – 14/10/20

What can I share with my small world? Perhaps kind words, understanding, empathy, cherished friendships and love for others, listening, being there, calming, caring, and throughout the process I am subtly growing. There is the understanding that I am able to assist others and not selfishly [...]

Poem: Facade – 13/10/20

There’s the facade that everything’s okay. We walk our neighbourhood route, acting naturally, smiling as our arms sway. But there’s a hidden secret, it’s kept close, away from prying eyes, the facade we hide behind, that nothing is astray or awry within our lives.

Poem: Honestly – 11/09/20

Honestly, where is the truth within that I’m trying to seek? The impermanence of self-esteem to be built up, energetically tremulous then monumental but still humbling when it’s finally seen. The lacking of needing the approval or presence of those I’ve come to depend on, because the truth is, for personal growth I must move forth, look forward. [...]
