A poem about starting over after life takes a turn for the worst.
She walks down a path, There's a clearing in the wood, A large lake lies still. She sits by the side, Evaluating the life, Under the surface.For under the still, Is a world we never knew, The surface hides it. She looks at her face, Reflected in the water, More than meets the eye. As under the layer, Of the girls exterior, Is a life she hides. For just... Continue Reading →
And yet still the broken live, a message that though people get battered emotionally they still go out and live life in society.
It has been a while since I have challenged myself to do one of these, I had become to busy to spend the time I wanted on the blog. It felt like a chore. I have had some time off and have come back loving it more than ever. With that being said, it is... Continue Reading →
Fog, Covered, Arms reaching, Man made of mist, Trying to grab me, He's got into my head, My thoughts all begin to blur, The man of the mist coming for me, My judgment is clouded, I can't see, My depression is catching up with me. I battle against the man made of mist, I beg... Continue Reading →

Photos hold stories, They hold moments forever, They tell my story, Better than I ever could, Whispering a thousand words. If you look closely, Photographs hold my secrets, Look you'll see it's true, They hold all of the secrets, I wouldn't have said to you. Photos can not change, Though the people in them can,...

If you dream about something, work until you can do it. Though it may be difficult and unpredictable, if it makes you happy, what have you got to lose! Work until your life becomes the life you dream of.
One for sorrow, Two for joy, Three for a girl, Four for a boy, Five for silver, Six for gold, Seven for a secret, Never to be told. Eight for a wish, Nine for a kiss, Ten for a bird you must not miss, Eleven for health, Twelve for wealth Thirteen, lookout it is the... Continue Reading →

So the worst part about being away from home is feeling homesick. Unfortunately for me I happen to feel homesick an awful lot. I don't know how to cope with that feeling, I don't know what I can do to make it better. Nothing I seem to do helps me face it. I want to... Continue Reading →

The rain is my favourite weather, and so waking up this morning to it gently hitting the window was a lovely wake up call for me. I find the rain so fascinating because it dances and falls to the ground. Everything becomes prettier in the rain.
Cold, Yet warm, Leaves dancing, Colours are bright, It's that time of year, Animals hibernate, And there's a chill in the air, Wrap up warm or colds are in store, But the sun still shines in the cold day, Autumn it's great to have you back to stay. The floor is covered in leaves all... Continue Reading →
The silence drowns out, Everything I want to feel, I feel so alone. I'm lucky because I have lots of people who care and look after me. People who check on on me.

Friendships are funny things. We choose these people that we like and we keep them around to talk too and we meet up with them sometimes. Some people we get on with instantly and other people we just don’t see eye to eye with. What many people do not understand is that it is perfectly... Continue Reading →
It's funny because I've just moved into a new house where we currently do not have any internet. It's only a few days temporarily, but it's amazing how lost you can feel without it.

She was three moves away from checkmate, The path was clear to see, All she had to do was count them out, One two and three, how simple it would be. But things aren't always easy, That's not how this game ends, For he could also make the move, And end the game right there.... Continue Reading →
Let me introduce you to this side of my skin. It's blemished and red tinged it's pale and thin. This side of my skin, that everyone sees. It isn't everything that makes up me. The outside seems stern and cold to the touch. But that doesn't give me credit for much. I may seem unapproachable,... Continue Reading →
I will admit. I'm scared of a few things, to name a few: spiders, feeling lonely, time going too fast and blank pages. I'm scared of blank pages. There's so many beautifully endless possibilities that can come with a blank page, it is almost overwhelming. You can sit down and draw or write or you... Continue Reading →
So you spend your money and precious time reading a book. You fall in love with the main characters, the story. You can't put it down. You're captivated into this world which you fall in love with. Racing through the pages you need to know how it ends. There's a selfish desire for all your... Continue Reading →
When do we stop being the person we're expected to be and become the person we want to be? When do we stop altering our actions to be the person we are not, to be the person we are? When do we stop writing for other people and start writing for ourselves? When can we... Continue Reading →
Sometimes I just want to write. I just want to sit down and empty my head of all of its contents. Just lay it all out, filling the blank pages with the images and colours and sounds I have stored. I want to tell stories and laugh about all of the wonderfully hilarious things and... Continue Reading →
Look.The North-South divide is real okay. Going to university in the North has taught me about the hatred for the South, okay fine. I’ve accepted it. But let me clear a few things up okay. The Midlands is a thing. I’m not even remotely sorry for pointing this out. I am a Midlander, and I am... Continue Reading →
As I close the door, Memories run out with me, It’s not my home now. So onwards we go, To the new place we call home, Adventure awaits. I moved out of my little flat which I’ve lived in for 2 years now hence the absence. It was so stressful packing everything up but now... Continue Reading →
They discarded us like useless seeds, Leaving our destiny to the breeze. We were carried away and lost, Afraid of the winter frost. But what they forget was even the smallest of seeds grow. We will rise up from the ground. So grow. Spread a voice of hope. Be the wildflower you were... Continue Reading →
She cast her eyes across the waves and watched, As the sun danced over the water. She thought about how she was like the ocean,Carefree and calm. But then she realised what else she could be. A storm of destruction, danger and fear.The waves crashing and bashing, destroying everything near. The sea may glisten but that’s... Continue Reading →
Recently, incase you haven't already heard, I've finished university. If I was being honest, I don't really know what I'm doing with my life.

After 3 years... I have finally completed my degree! So 3 years ago I arrived at a university in Liverpool City Centre, after moving 100 miles away from the place I called home. I was placed into a flat of 7 people and that was that. So much has happened over the years let me... Continue Reading →
I can do anything. Apologies for the absence, I have a music performance exam later on today. Though I am so nervous, if I believe in myself enough, part of me believes that I can do this. I can do this and I will. Watch me.
