• Love power

    Love can make me angryThinking you’re givingBut not seen as receiving Trying to retreatBut looking like you’re taking defeat Wanting status quo But neither knows Nor realises That that is the  flow That’s the power of love

    So - it looks like you’re not going to give up on usI thought you might But you seem to be fighting for me It seems I’m bigger to you than I thought  Thank god You say it how it isBoy does that hurtBut cause you do that The bruise doesn’t get worseIt diminishes any curseI feel from it  Thank you for not giving up on usI hope you never willAnd I hope I never won’t

  • What's Inside

     “It’s not a tale, but a story that is constantly being written.”It’s not enough to simply see you from the outside. It’s easily enough to appreciate your strength, but that falls short from what they can’t see. You can’t fully appreciate the story when you only know the ending. What people don’t see will open their eyes forever. Those who share a similar understanding will find their way. How struggle and triumph lay just beyond ...

  • An Ongoing Process

    I look upon recovery as being an ongoing process, as I think I for one will always strive for progress. In recovery, there is no right or wrong, but to move on from somewhere unpleasant you have to be incredibly strong. You will need to come so far out of your comfort zone, but the important thing to remember is that you don't need to do it alone. The road to recovery can be testing ...

  • TRUST IN GOD

    So here it is, my letter to God. Dear God, I asked for strength, and you gave me difficulties to make me strong. I asked for wisdom, and you gave me problems to solve. I asked for prosperity, and you gave me brain and brawn to work. I asked for courage, you gave me danger to overcome. I asked for love, you gave me troubled people to help. I asked for favours, and you gave ...

  • I survived

    Please Note: This Story Discusses Suicide... When I look back to this time last year- I wanted to die. I did everything to hurt myself. I cut my wrists, I starved myself and I made several attempts to end my life. I had no future and no life and I wanted it all to end. I don't know exactly what happened between then and now, but now I know that self- destruction is no longer ...

  • Wearing my Shadow

    I am learning to own my darkest shadows, perhaps I shall wear Them like a cape. I can hide in Them and bide in Them, until the sun within me rises, and I can breathe again, without choking on Their thick, velvety, folds. Sometimes They are warm, familiar and comforting like liquorice, Others They are cold and isolating, and the wind whips through me to push all of the clouds away, But The Shadows they ...
