If life is a story then mental challenge is a page
Illness knows no mercy nor does it prefer an age
Not even gender too
Trying to bury your emotions in a plate of food
Writing your task list then forgetting what to do
Always telling yourself that you don’t belong
And every waking day it’s the same old song
‘I’m gonna be good today – no you’re not! Today I’m gonna be a….oh darn I forgot!
You don’t wanna be called special because you link that to a disability
Keeping it a secret because you are afraid of the community
Because some idiot, who’s ignorant might call you crazy….
But I say… the world could use a little crazy
Special is not disabled…it’s being unique,
You have a purpose on this land but you’re too negative to see it
Drop self-hate! Unveil self-appreciation
Love yourself and begin to teach your nation
There is so much we can do if we just begin to accept our reality
Stop exiling the victim and begin to help your family
Because the truth is, we are all a little crazy
Some of us just haven’t been diagnosed
Today, for her, but tomorrow, who knows?
Empower! Educate! Accept! Embrace!
The world is everyone’s home
And I don’t care what your diagnosis is I just know you are not alone
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
In support of World Mental Health Day – October 10, 2017
Your scars are beautiful, they show me strength, courage and POWER
Power over the BUMPS in life and PAIN that a sad day can bring
Let me kiss your beautiful head after you have SHAVED
I watch you shed the weight
You are a NEW WOMAN, re birthed and so you must LIVE for your sisters
And your life will honour those who didn’t survive life’s BUMPS
There are moments when I look back on our journey and I learn each day to appreciate
every broken promise,
because only then would I be able to love you the way I do
I place God between us and my love around you.
I replay the sounds of us making love in my head and realized it’s my favourite RnB/Souls playlist…
Last night I missed you while I dreamt of someone else…
I guess my mind and my heart are out of sync
Age creeps up on us and changes us without us noticing
Our experiences become lessons and in the background our minds change
Things that mattered become a memory and old promises made to ash
It’s inevitable, we grow and so past commitments become void
How can you cure a connection with someone when their cells continuously change? How can you believe in forever when yesterday will soon be a memory and today will someday be forgotten…
It takes a lot out of her to fake a smile
She prays it is bright enough to hide her glossy eyes
Because at any moment she might cry
The walls feel like they are closing in because it suddently got way too crowded
Let me breathe…somewhere…for a while…please?
He held a queen and made a bet
he was confident with his hand
Even after a few lost games he still sat at the table
Willing to risk it all for a moment to win
After calling bluff, he lost it all to a table filled with jokers
But i guess that’s why they say love is a game
