In The Library ( in the tune of ‘ In The Navy 🎶’

In The Library ( in the tune of ‘In The Navy’🎶) In the library, Where the writers meet to write. In the library, Where Parents come for respite. In the library, Where there are so many books. In the library, in the library, You can find a little nook. In the library, Where the staff…

My Sons Battle

He used to smile so much more.I feel responsible for his frown.In his lowest depths,I see him drown. I wish I could heal his pain.But my mother’s love,Doesn’t act as a drain. I see his worth.I try my best to support.But some days he is lost,I stand by and hope. One day I will find…

Even If Its Only One Step

Trigger Warning.  Depression.  Anxiety. Chronic illness. Growing up ,I hoped I have a good heart.Be a person people liked.I should’ve known by living life,That life would turn the knife. I was bullied for my speech issues.For dyslexia and being pale.For my ginger hair and much much more.Their snipes would never fail. I retreated in to…

I Am Not Ok

Trigger Warning, depression Yesterday I was broken,A shell of who I am.The tears kept on falling,I couldn’t escape myself. I felt I failed those around me,I knew I failed myself.My body went into shock,Down the drain went my health. Today I still feel it,The tears do try to escape.But hopefully things are getting better,Because I…

That House

Trigger Warning. Contains instance of child molestation, Mental illness and  anxiety Today I walked passed that house.I felt overwhelmed. Triggered.It was the same house,Yet different. Music blasted out,From an upstairs window.Suggesting maybe a teen lived there.The net curtains were replaced by blinds. I glanced briefly,Feelings of anxiety surfaced.A memory of trying to make excuses to…

What I Cannot Be

Trigger Warning. Mental illness and Financial hardship I feel trampled, Beaten down. Life with its obstacles. Constantly fighting, Trying to keep up. Get through, Just to get by. It’s like joy is sucked away,Snuffed out by doom. Struggling to get food, pay bills.While social media highlights, Falsehoods of perfection. Making me feel like more of…

The Partial World of The Partially Deaf

Stuck in a bubble,Twisted tangled sounds.Deflected, scattered, scrambled.I see mouths move,Shaping into words,I strain to hear.I try to translate lips. Barely registered words.While more words and sounds,Collide.I feel lost, alone, Isolated.On the outside, looking in.Smiles, laughter,  engagement,As conversation flows.But to me,Only distortion.As small voices,Are encased in background noise. Repeatedly saying ‘what?’To eventual frustration.To finally sitting…
