Reaching A Mental Health Milestone

During the past few years, I have struggled with my mental health. I have General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), which means I constantly worry about everything and experience high amounts of anxiety for no reason at all. It took me a long time to accept that my anxiety was part of me, something that I couldn't… Continue reading Reaching A Mental Health Milestone

Lost At Sea

I feel like I'm lost at sea and I am barely keeping my head above the water. I kick my legs to stay alive and I can see the sun on the horizon but no matter how hard I try to swim towards it, the waves take me in a different direction. Some days, I… Continue reading Lost At Sea

Walking Stardust

Walking Stardust Breathing in the warmth of your skin, your eyelashes flutter like petals, sleeping. I stare into the dusty black room. Light creeps through the blinds. Hitting the wall with its luminous glow. A romantic feeling pulses through the layers of my skin. I am optimistic that no other being will make me feel… Continue reading Walking Stardust

Delicate flower trapped in storm.… Continue reading Delicate Flower

The City That Never Sleeps

Overcast sky, luminous lights. Kinetic energy, Silhouette heights. Livestock rushing, around in the heat. Camera's clicking, rushing to Wall street. Broadway symphony, TV colours explode. A Yellow blur of taxis, fight for the road. Skyscrapers standing, proud, side by side. No sense of direction, only intuition as my guide. (Part of my poetry portfolio -… Continue reading The City That Never Sleeps

Stay Strong

Masking the desolation you face every day, Your happiness eclipsed with the ease of just a smile. Strong enough to hold back your silver tears, Unfair, the path that leads you is painted with black most days. Light will shine for you one day, I promise you this, stay strong. Be faithful. Stay beautiful, mother.
