A Crying Shame

I'm taking a riskβ€”The floor could absolutely quake at any moment,My entire world would shake,Through the seat I'm sitting on,Through my feet on the floor,Through the solid desk my hands and arms are resting on,The computer screen I'm looking at could sway back and forth,The microphone arm could shake,My plants could quiver as the shock … Continue reading A Crying Shame

The Fortress At Skull’s Gap

They said that this fortress was impenetrable,They implied that nothing could bring down its grand walls,Built with multiple layers of redundancy,And constructed in its minutest detail by the finest bricklayers and craftsmen, "There is no danger that this fortress will be breached.

After … Continue reading Rebirth

Moving Forwards With Love

I still get caught up in self-loathing,And self-philosphising, Kicking myself for not doing what I planned,Then gaining perspective,Of the things stacked against me; And every now and then,Something properly kicks the perspective back into shape,And I'm putting myself in somebody else's place,And witnessing the strength required of others, And it helps to break out of … Continue reading Moving Forwards With Love
