The desire of one’s heart

can seem so insignificant

so small

yet so sincere

The desire of one’s heart

means so much 

simply satisfied

it can bring a smile to the heart

A simple bird-feeder

is all I wanted

to draw the birds

to enjoy their beauty

I had a vision in mind

this desire so...

This life…

Truly a gift given

A moment of breathe, 

Here one moment, 

the next it’s gone.

This world,

A future hope lost

Death….how does one prepare for this.

The loss and the pain one feels

runs deep within ones soul

The tears that fall so heavy

receiving each blow,

at the centre point of being

Once I was a target, 

at first small and tender,

but now grown, standing tall

but NOW, I am the arrow

This week I had a conversation with Alex

A conversation tha...

Taking a walk up a rocky mountain construct, where a waterfall usually comes gushing down.

This stream is only a trickle…with a small pathway of water gently flowing down.

The desert-like drought is seen and felt all around.

What is usually a luscious greenery and overflo...

It’s dark, it’s heavy… buried deep down, 

Buried deep down in the ground…

the ground of systemic injustice, there is no way out of this…or is there?


Standing in this mine, chipping away at the daily struggles of life...

Filled with the dirt of the surroundings, all I can...

The week leading up to the Training day, was hectic and quite stressful. The week had a few emotional up's and down...
