Sahara Desert 

My scars are not yours to star at,  
they are signs of a Sahara desert 
that ran dry for so long,
that I had to dig deep to find signs of life,
that dry land can crack, down to it's hollow core
and it isn't water that pours out.
Because the cracks go on for miles and miles
across a skin I call home. 
Eventually the rains came 
but nothing can erase the trails
of a drought that once lived within

I am tired. 

Not the type of 
fatigue that is from 
late nights or being busy, 
the type of tired 
where every wave that 
hits my back 
knocks my soul 
a little too hard 
and I've forgotten how 
to swim, so this, 
this is now a waiting game 
either for the water to 
reclaim me or 
for a life boat to 
find me.

I wrote a book! - More than just a promotion post

I wrote and illustrated a book! A poetry ebook but still a book! A book all bout mental illness, living in a 21st century society with also an honest account of the ups and downs of life that we are all sure to face and more! I want to take the time in this post to explain a little about my journey to this moment and of course to give you a sample of the book.
