Keep Breathing

IMG_20180211_125713Take a deep breath in

Hold it for a moment

Now let it go slowly

Feel that?

You’re alive.

That may or may not excite you

As life has been a little shaky lately

Almost as if the solid rock you once stood on

Is melting ice, thanks to global warming!

You’re alive.

 That’s something, isn’t it?

It means you still have another chance

To allow life smack you in the face

Or run to the throne of grace.

Everyone dies someday

But for you, not today

So do me one favour, love

Keep breathing.

She couldn’t remember sleeping. There had been a lot of crying and drinking to drown her fears and she fell asleep somewhere in the middle. The pain still gnawed at her heart while she silently whispered ‘Help me God’  Continue reading “Night Files 2”

Dear Diary

A new chapter of my life just opened up to me and I’m literally staring at a blank sheet. Thanks to my soul sister, I’m going to chronicle this phase of my life (partly because it keeps me from losing it sometimes). Welcome to the first part of the Diary of a Transitioning Millennial (DTM) series. Continue reading “DTM”
