I will be sharing through my poems some insight into my journey through some of the toughest times in my life and also some of my happiest. It was the cathartic nature of release poetry gives… that I found my voice to write.

Know your place.

 

Below is my latest ditty, written over the last week or so after realising my place in anothers life. #SoWhat #itaintovertillitsover 

 

Know your place . ..

Fair weather friend

Know your place…

Compliant friend

Know your place…

Don’t ever disagree  with me friend

Know  your place…

Unsullied waters and resonable friend

Know your place…

Always forgiving and giving  friend

Know  your fucking  place. ..

Never question me friend

Know your place . . . 

‘Yes mam’ me friend

Know your place…

For once you stand up to me

Challenge my behavior 

Call me out on my drama 

I’m going to drop you like you never existed . ..cos thats what I do

To those who forget their fair weather  place.

IT IS.

The following is a poem I wrote a long time ago, it reverberates within me strongly at the moment witnessing what is happening at Standing Rock Indian Reservation.  

I

IT IS

THE SUBTLY OF NEGATING AND QUIET ERODING,

IT IS 

NOT THE BLACK AND WHITE,

IT IS 

THE BLINDING GREY  TO BE FEARED.

 


 

 IT IS

THE SHADOW OF COMPLIANCE,

IT IS

THE ENTWINING OF BELIEF,

IT IS

THE DARKENING OF UNIQUENESS.


 

IT IS

THE MIND GAMES OF ’NORMALITY’,

IT IS

THE DEATH OF  NATIONS,

IT IS

IGNORANCE BREEDING SUSPICION.


 

IT IS

SLY  ANNIHILATION,

IT IS

FEAR FILLED  INTERLOPERS,

IT IS

ASPHYXIATING ALL WITH A WAISCU  MINDSET.


 

IT IS

INSIDIOUSLY INSTIGATING  THE  SCHISM OF INDEPENDENCE,

IT IS

INVADING, PERVADING,OVERWHELMING ALL,

IT IS

THE ENDING IF ABSORBED.


 

IT IS

THE  ERADICATION OF LIFEWAY  AND INTERCONNECTEDNESS,

IT IS

THE ALONENESS OF SELF RELIANCE THAT FRACTURES,

IT IS

THE ‘LITTLE DEATHS’ THAT KILL THE SOUL.


 

                                                        II

 

 IT IS

THE CONNECTEDNESS THAT WILL BREAK THE STRANGLEHOLD,

 IT IS

THE OPENNESS OF HONESTY THAT IS CORRUPTIONS ENEMY,

IT IS

THE KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH THAT FREES THE PRISONER.


 

 IT IS

THE PURENESS OF HEART THAT ENLIVENS,

IT IS

THE INTANGIBLE AND TANGIBLE,

IT IS

THE RESOLVE TO BE  HEART  TRUE.


                            

IT IS

THE SOUL’S BREATH,

IT IS

THE SPIRIT SPEAKING,

IT IS

THE INNATE KNOWING.


 

 IT IS

THE BEGINNINGS,

IT IS

THE ENDINGS,

IT IS

THE BELIEVING.


 

IT IS

UNDERSTANDING THAT COMES FROM THE SILENCE,

IT IS

REACHING DEEP INSIDE AND EMBRACING OF IT,

IT IS

THAT CLARITY OF VOICE HEARD.


 

IT IS

REACHING FORTH TO ENFOLD,

IT IS

THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF  COMPASSION,

IT IS

THE FEARLESS FREEDOM.


 

IT IS

THE FATHOMED DEPTHS,

IT IS

THE LIFEWAY OF BEING,

IT IS 

THE INTERTWINING  OF ALL.


 

IT IS

THE HUMANENESS OF LIVING,

IT IS

THE BEAUTY OF TRUTH,

IT IS

THE UGLINESS OF LIE.


 

IT IS

OVERCOMING  INSURMOUNTABLE ODDS,

IT IS

EARS COMPREHENDING THAT WHICH IS UNSPOKEN,

IT IS

WORDS SEEN THROUGH EYES UNBLINDED.


 

IT IS

TOUCH, SPEAKING MORE THAN THOUSAND WORDS,

IT IS

THE QUIET REALITY OF HUMBLENESS AND WISDOM,

IT IS

INTERCONNECTEDNESS MENDING THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN.


                           

IT IS

THE INTERDEPENDENCE  OF BEING ONE THAT HEALS AND FORGIVES,

IT IS

IN THE REMEMBERING, THAT REMEDIES AND RESTORES.

IT IS

LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY WITH HEARTS STRONG AND TRUE.

 

 

 

My Wish for you

My wish for you this Christmas

lasting memories and abiding love.

I wish you…the very best in life

contenment and satisfaction in relationships,

fun and laughter that comes

I wish your 2015 to be the best yet.

Filled with dreams turning to reality,

the embers bursting to flame,

the passionfilled life!

I wish you mega blessings and

a deep heart felt thank you for being

in my life.

Love…completely, deeply and passionately!

Allow no one, no thing or situation bring you down…merry_christmas_everyone

Suicides Truth…Silent Killer

I wrote the following poem a few years after I came up out of that very dark,scary pit of despair.  If you want to know what it is like…then read on.

ONE WAY OUT.

Don’t dare tell me to

‘Snap out of it,’

‘Get over it,’

‘Deal with it,’

Or worse

‘Just give yourself time!’

Don’t you see it yet?

The guilt of not being able,

Is too much.

Can’t you see I’m drowning?

I’m in utter despair,

I can’t deal with your derision…

ONE

WAY

OUT…

Pressures are building,

Guilt keeps imploding,

Disassociating,

Even though

I participate.

Isolating, numb and shamed…

At my inability,

To fight despair.

Madness seems clarity,

Realitys truth smudges,

Who can love me knowing I feel,

Knowing I want this kind of escape…

NO WAY, but

ONE

WAY

OUT…

Darkness surrounds me,

Comforting,

In its hiding

Oblivion.

Surreal glimpses

Through laughter’s tears.

Smiling eyes conceal my crying heart,

I close my eyes…

As oblivion encircles.

Tortured and twisting,

I loathe my inability

To shake this darkness…

ONE

WAY

OUT…

Alone, I see only me…

Rattling the cage,

Who could feel this, know this?

Ache of living.

Asphyxiating and enveloping

I know only this for me now.

As I hear my soul shrieking,

In the silence so very loud,

As I claw the air, sound is muffled.

Rage explodes ‘God! Someone hear

My silent heart screaming…

Crazed, dazed, overwhelmed, I sense only

ONE

WAY

OUT…

Pain is acute, dread is building.

Can anyone love me through this?

Suffocating and all encompassing

Darkness veils me…

I can’t see the sunshine

For the rain, thin line of sanity crossing…

Over to oblivion’s bliss!

All I see is peace and

Blessed release,

I don’t want to die,

Surely life’s got to be better

Than this, no?  So I cease it…

ONE

WAY

OUT….

Too intense now to breath,

How eternally aching each

Pain filled moment seems….

Intensities rising,

Resigned now to ending

Insignificant and utterly unmissable.

Convinced beyond doubt now,

So I rub me out!

Life has no colour

Left for me…

Let wings of death,

Encircle my cage…

AS I TAKE

ONE

WAY

OUT!
