One of the practices we learn in counselling Psychology is to ask our clients to reach out to how they’re feeling and if possible, choose a color that resonates with their situation. Today – I feel blue… Not the blue of a calm, beautiful summer day’s sky… But the blue of the fingernails when you …

Void

I feel hollow today.... The kind of emptiness that has no real depth. It's pitch black darkness where you feel suspended in space... No ground to touch, no walls to grasp. Just emptiness in its purest sense. And the more I try to make sense of it, the more entangled I get. The more I …

Embers Of A Dying Fire

The first few sentences of an otherwise ending chapter. The graciousness of leaving no loopholes, no painful feelings unventured. The resilience to keep pressing on no matter the storm...

May you have a heart That forgives enemies... A heart so pure and so resilient  Your demons shiver in fear Of approaching …

I have known defeat and I have known betrayal, I've known terror and I have known fear... I know the excruciating pain of loss And I know the cold numbness of depression... Some I know first hand, Others I've experienced through  My empathy.. I know war, I know prejudice, And I know racism... And because …
