she'll still be here in ten years
our relationship but a crime
I will ony survive this trial if
I take it on one day at a time
philosophies come in guises
some aim at personal charm
other strive for success, or
the avoidance of self-harm
mine is to keep my head up
dont get agitated at her tics
ignore the tone of her voice
the jabs and yells and tricks

In an otherwise empty building,
One lighted window.
Pot plants, and maybe someone standing
Beyond the curtain.
I can see buildings in the moonlit water,
A lake behind trees,
A tree behind glass,
Glass behind me,
A picture of myself.
My bardic table
Reflected on itself.
If I see four truths in one picture,
How many could there be?

Can we be brave and kind,
Strong enough to speak our mind?
Can we be mindful of the words we say,
As we go about our busy day?
I challenge you to try this week,
to reflect on every word you speak.
Will you be kind and gentle with yourself and others?
Friends, strangers, sisters and brothers.

A deep calming breath.
Take in the oxygen, let it fill your aching lungs.
Blow out the pain and the suffering into a the air,
Free it from the shackles of your body. It felt like a stranger.
Feel your fingers tingle as the blood rushes up and back down.
Feel your soul leave the confines of your physical being.
Don't be afraid. You are still here. You are in the world,
Your body is sti...

The sun is out but I have to stay in. A black pen and a white piece of paper await my creative side to begin. There is no noise here inside my house.
I sit still while the chaos continues outside. I lift the black pen and I start to write. My body is calm and these four walls have been my safe space.
I have heat, clean water and fresh food in this place. This place I call, my home. How luc...

Our bodies borrowed from the Universe
A billion years old
Yet renewing every moment.
What will history say when your story is told?

The realisations that a bit of mindfully living in the moment can bring....
It's magical that we taste
There's magic in a touch
Magic surrounds all the things
Which we don't think of much
The splendour of our sunshine
Remarkable drops of rain
The miracle of each day
That we've awoke again
The greatness of those blades of grass
That grow beneath our feet...

Here I go, take a step onto the stage called life.
Finally awake for the first time. Fully present here and now. What a gift.
Hold onto your handlebars.
I take this breath like dope.
Into my blood, down into the depths of my being.
Where being is seeing.
Like a probe searching for answers.
My feet carry my swiftly as I walk.
Rooted firmly in the earth, I am strong.

Scream lung deep into a brown paper bag,
Let the pain poor free to drain the bulls red rag,
I don’t hear where the devil lives for the rustling distorts,
I know you’re hurting but your hand is moving and I can’t see all the warts,
Until you choose - until you can,
Until your soul finds the strength to trust a man,
I will hear words only spoken in different tongue,
