My Thing

A Little Something New

In 2018, I moved to the City. It was an exciting adventure and I made a point of looking at some activities I might be able to do while living here. Things that had often crossed my mind but were unattainable while living in the village I was raised. Some things were an exciting thought, … Continue reading A Little Something New

I Wished For You, Too

The years have been hard, A dullness, a dark room without any light. Hands always stretching out ahead, chasing, Everything always just out of reach.

Dream Trip

'By the time I'm 30, I'll be recovered enough to go to New York.'  I lost years of my life to mental illness, with the hope of one day being able to recover - the one consistent thought being 'by the time I'm 30...' By the time I'm 30, I'll have recovered, faced my fear … Continue reading Dream Trip

A Bad Routine
