Queen of the Night

She lies in pitch black A silent sun Whose gentle glow shines on death and all things hidden in shadow  . She ebbs and flows like the waters of the sea Hiding pieces of herself for days at a time Until she decides to finally, shine . The woman dances and howls at the skyContinue reading “Queen of the Night”

You don’t need to compare yourself to anyone

I feel like in society today, everything’s about competition. You have to be the best, be ‘better than you were yesterday’, in order to succeed and feel like you lived your life to the fullest. And all that basically does is create a breeding ground for self criticism, and self comparison. Cause the two comeContinue reading “You don’t need to compare yourself to anyone”

Choose love over fear

Sometimes I feel like I’m addicted to darkness. Like when I’m on the verge of change, and I have a choice between feeling shitty and anxious, or taking a deep breath to feel better, I choose the first option. And it makes no sense to me! Like it’s literally the stupidest thing if you thinkContinue reading “Choose love over fear”

Lost at sea

In a shipwreck on a stormy sea A girl was lost to the tormented waves that glittered in the moonlight  – And there she spun,  around and around in a tidal of confusion In swirls of merciless agony – And as the sky shifted to dawn And the sun melted into the water, It smoothenedContinue reading “Lost at sea”

I wonder what it means to be alive

Sometimes I wonder what it means to live life. Because for so long I have spent my days moving from one task to the next without a pause. I have struggled to get through the day, and go to bed early so I can miss several precious hours because it is too difficult for meContinue reading “I wonder what it means to be alive”

Choose who you spend your time with

Your time is precious. Your time is sacred. Now you can spend your moments with people who tear you down, who make you feel less than and who question your every move. You can choose to spend time with people who make you feel like shit, who potentially catalyse a series of unfortunate events forContinue reading “Choose who you spend your time with”

Who do you need to forgive?

Think about it. Are you the kind of person who holds grudges? Or even if you are not, take a look at your life right now. Sometimes, the reasons we can’t move on are because we have to forgive a person, a situation, or ourselves. If you want to move on from something, if youContinue reading “Who do you need to forgive?”

Free

I often wonder what the taste of freedom is I imagine its like a leap of faith Or like reaching out your finger to touch the place  where the sea and the sky meet – Maybe its like holding a piece of moonlight in the base of your palm And drinking from it slowly untilContinue reading “Free”

Don’t let others disrespect you

Yesterday I called the nursery I volunteer at to tell them I wouldn’t be there this week cause my sister has Covid, and the woman who picked up was just brushing me off like yeah yeah we done here kinda thing, and she said “bye!” in a super cheery passive aggressive kind of way whenContinue reading “Don’t let others disrespect you”

It’s okay to let your guard down

Its okay to give up the fight. Put your sword down, let your barriers break, open up your mind and your heart. It is safe to soften, to open. You don’t have to constantly fight with yourself, or live with inner turmoil simply because you are too afraid of what it would mean to be open.Continue reading “It’s okay to let your guard down”
