Mercy

From the Feathered Sleep

TheFeatheredSleep

Though we were afraid
We stood

Though we trembled

We reached

Though we feared falling

We let go

Though you are far

You caught me

Though you were struggling

You held on

Though we both felt we couldn’t

We did

And the light that bathed our rebirth

Was a mute white

And the song in our mouths

Was of gratitude

And my loved ones passed over

Clambored from their soil and Ash

As beautiful as children again

Clasping my empiness

They claimed me anew

Standing on the bridge

One side darkness and dusk

Extinguisher of all I was

The other side golden

You have been so missed they chorused

And at first I couldn’t bear the feeling

Surging in me like a hundred hands

But they held firm, did not let me run, did not excuse me

No death did not stop us

No life is not meant to be…

A Friend In Trouble

Please take a moment to offer a word of encouragement to a fellow blogger in need

Mental Health – Lets talk about it!

April is Mental Health Awareness Month

Natalie Fielden

It is widely believed across the world that Mental Health isn’t spoken about enough, when in actual fact it probably is spoken about enough, just no action is taken in order to help people overcome these health issues; which I believe is due to the stigma built up, behind mental health.

I do believe that at recent points in my life, I have suffered one, if not several mental illnesses.There were days on end when I wouldn’t leave my bed, I would feel emotionless, the other days where I could be the happy person I have always been. However I cannot say this for sure as I didn’t get diagnosed, because I didn’t want to. The reason I didn’t want to get diagnosed with anything was because I was scared. I wasn’t scared of this thing being named… I was scared of the label. I didn’t want my friends, my…

Societies Ills

Splendid writing from Daisy in the Willows

Daisy in the Willows

Sitting with a cup in me hand,rattling my pennies. The wind cuts through my salvation army coat – I feel bare.

Half an hour until the big brother brigade does their rounds, to come  clear off the debris of me, offending society, with my appearance of failure. Glasses fixed on nose bridges to hide poverty’s despicable,  shining glare.

It wasn’t meant to get to this point. I had a home, a family. Believe me, I was a carer. That was many years ago.

I let my parents down. They was ill. They fought a lot. Dyspraxia and Alzheimers is a blinding, rallied up bull  shit way  to steer 30 years of love straight out the front door with a forceful blow.

Pa was getting violent he couldn’t help it – it was the  frustration. The illness works that way . Too much protein in the brain ,the doctor says.

I don’t care much for protein. I…
