Little piece of nothing

Sometimes there is nothing to hold on to but we get so scared that we create fantasies and imagine what we want to see ….

So that…that way we can live in our excuses as to why we are still there …

Hanging on desperately to nothing

You are not AlOnE

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!

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

Learning Love

There are moments when I look back on our journey and I learn each day to appreciate

every tear,

every sweat,

every broken promise,

every battle

because only then would I be able to love you the way I do

I place God between us and my love around you.

T’was a nice morning

It was so good watching you smile, hearing you laugh and feeing your touch–

Was so comforting listening to your stories and erupting in laughter to your jokes

The journey with you, no matter how short, is a source of adrenaline

I guess that’s how mornings are when you are inlove…or maybe that’s how mornings are when last night was so much fun!

Loving you blind

To love you is to carry you with me everyday, not seeing you but still feeling a connection between us…yearning to be next to you because that is where home is

To love you is to sacrifice my happiness for yours, because when you are happy so am I, either way I am smiling

To love you is to drown myself in tears trying to explain how I feel but I just can’t seem to get the right words out…or make any sense at all

To love you is to close my eyes and allow my heart to wander carelessly in the dark because I have no limits, no boudaries and intentions to stop

To love you is to love you blind…Am I making any sense yet?

“W”

There was a crashing sound, I jumped out of my sleep

With my eyes still half shut I tried to make out what was happening

SHE was in tears on the ground fighting a shadow over her

This dark shadow was moving very fast

Without thinking I ran over –

Wrapped my arms as tight as I could to help HER

But he was stronger than me, than US

He swung me from him his side which landed me in the wall

The lamp on the table was shattered and some broken glass cut me

I sat there BLEEDING as TEARS and BLOOD ran from me

I sat there HELPLESS on the floor looking at HER

HE was enraged with so much ANGER that he didn’t notice me and what he’d done

So SHE ran to ME

Even though she had her fair share of bruises – SHE still RAN to ME

WE RAN TOGETHER ….OUTSIDE to ESCAPE

ESCAPE HIM, not sure what the next step would be but-

WE HAD EACH OTHER and that was ENOUGH

Movin’with the punches

Maybe we will make it until tomorrow

At this point I am willing to start with at least that

Even though you are not really good for me…you still seem like a pretty good bad idea
