Reading poetry is one thing but hearing it gives an entirely different experience! I created this podcast to give my words a place to speak a little more loudly. Though they will always have a safe space to continue to whisper here. Please like, share, subscribe and review on your favorite listening platform.

Letters

I write suicide letters in my head sometimes. Like today, on a 3 hour drive home. I think about who would want an explanation, who deserves one. The thought of actually doing anything to render those letters true always makes me weep! This is why I know I’d never bring myself to ever need to create them. But still, I write suicide letters in my head sometimes. I’ve addressed a few to God. Asking him why he thinks I’m so strong? Why he keeps giving me loads to carry? I ask him to bring me to safety. I beg Him to send someone to protect me. He hasn’t read those yet. Nonetheless, His comforting presence keeps me from actual pen and paper. And still, I write suicide letters in my head sometimes.

“This life. This night. Your story. Your pain. Your hope. It matters. All of it matters.” — Jamie Tworkowski

Don’t give up. Lets keep going, together. Please!

Vulnerability

You have to be willing to endure
the risks that accompany unguarded
vulnerability because the rewards
your heart may receive are far greater.
There’s just an immeasurable beauty
that comes with being unafraid
to throw caution to the wind and
simply follow the path love flows.
