After graduation

At the end of final year, we all went our separate ways,  With hopes to change the world, With wild and vibrant dreams,  With heaps of student debt,  With a new sudden role of bread winner,  With tons of knowledge and little experience, With a sparkle in our eyes that we still fight to keep. […]

Intuition wrote me a letter

Have I ever whispered something into your soul that wasn’t true?  Have I ever led you down a path of destruction?  Have I ever deserted you when you needed me the most?  I’m always with you. I’m the compass that never leaves you,  The one who always shows you the right way,  The one who […]

The value of you

You are like a well-thought-out plan.  Every part of you is meticulous,   Positioned for being,  Adorned with love.  You are like a body of art,  Crafted in flawless ways,  Sculpted with precision,  Scripted to perfection.    You are like a kind word that heals the heart,  Your existence unfolds like a beautiful story.  Through […]

Falling into place

Her bedroom felt like an interrogation cell. A candle on her study table flickered, offering dim light.  She felt as though the beige-coloured walls were caving in, The thump of her heart blasted through her ears.  She tried to calm down but she couldn’t,  Rocking backwards and forward, rubbing her arms, breathing in and out.

The ebb and flow of feelings

Sometimes I feel good, sometimes I don’t,  Sometimes I look good, sometimes I don’t.  Sometimes I feel strong, other times I don’t,  Sometimes I know, sometimes I don’t.  Sometimes I feel smart, sometimes I feel like an idiot,  Sometimes I make wise decisions, sometimes I don’t.  Sometimes I give myself a round of applause, sometimes […]

How poverty made me feel

Poverty, I’ll never forget how you made me feel.  You made me feel trapped,  You made me feel limited,  You made me feel cut off from the world,  You made me feel desperate.    You put me at the mercy of others,  You made me feel disempowered.  You made me feel ugly,  You made me […]

Death ain’t natural

Death feels so unnatural.  In my heart, I know we’re built to last,  I guess God designed us to live forever.  My mind knows that death exists,  But my heart can’t comprehend its reality.    So when death comes,  It feels like it goes against our essence,  It feels like an injustice…   * image […]

An oasis in the the desert

There’s an oasis in the middle of the desert,  A pool of sparkling blue waters adorns as its centre piece,  Its borders are decorated with palm trees that dance a little as a breeze passes by.    The sand dune stands as a golden brown cone in the background,  A true king of the desert.  […]
