Many times I wanted to give up,
hanging on by a single silver thread.
As I watched as life passed me
Covered in darkness and despair.
Every morning I watched the sun rise
Hoping it would help me rise too
The sun rose, but I didn’t
I stayed their holding on.
Maybe it was my strength deep down inside
That gave me the courage to just let go
And when I finally did
I realised I didn’t need that string after all
I realised that after many sunrises
My hand had been held the whole time,
Something was trying to caress me.
I think it was life.

Couldn’t resist, I had to take
extra step
to the side which I knew best.
Through those times I spent mesmerised
by the hidden message
in and out, high and above
Through and through
Within and without.

Listen to its silence
It’s sweet sweet music.
Open your heart to the heavens
and skies.
Breathe it,
love it,
become it.
Then exhale
and dance.

Raw and unfinished
I was broken
then I put myself back together
Tiny pieces of glass scattered across the ground
I was lost and so alone.
But then I became stronger
I found my strength
I made myself whole again.
I could say life was unfair
I could say allot of things really
But who am I to judge life or this universe.
No one ever said it was meant to be easy.
I could’ve given up
But I would never do that.
Instead I chose to rise
To climb back up
as I swallowed my tears.
