Magic Love

By |July 31st, 2014|Insight, Life, Philosophical, Romantic|Comments Off on Magic Love

“Life’s logic is found in the mysterious equations
of love.” John Forbes Nash

No other illness is stricken,
with a constant cold winter, to become a
wrestler of thoughts, beaten by his
own mind, worked by the strings of puppet God’s.
Love is a voyage of […]

They’re Just Flowers

By |June 27th, 2014|Compassion, I Love You, Insight, Inspirational, Life, Soul|Comments Off on They’re Just Flowers

I’d had another
pointless and
futile
argument
with my
mother in the
living room.

It was about not taking my
medication. I hated
myself for being
pedantic and
petty.

She’s a woman of
experience, and at
her maturity
she’s had
time to know
my faults. Her patience
was tested for the
billionth
time.

My mum
was only
being considerate
and loving.

The truth is
when a […]

Weeping Willow

By |February 6th, 2014|Confusion, Introspection, Life, Lonely, Loss, Lost, Nature|Comments Off on Weeping Willow

The Willow stands central in the garden,
Weeping onto winter’s bitter shoulder.
I hear her crying in the dead of night,
I pull a pillow over my head;
But the sadness still remains.

Her slumped trunk,
Her sagging skin,
A vertical eye forever open.
Her branches hang like […]

It is pouring

By |January 13th, 2014|Hope, Life, Metamorphosis, Nature|Comments Off on It is pouring

It is pouring.
It is raining.
A time of cleansing—
Little bird is cleaning her wings.

My head is spinning,
My mind is racing:
The blood of Jesus is cleansing.
God’s child is cleaning her wings.

You may not wonder
How the bird flies
But will wonder why your soul […]

The Butterfly

By |January 5th, 2014|Hope, Imagination, Insight, Inspirational, Life, Spiritual|Comments Off on The Butterfly

Be
aware
of all your
great potentials.
Freedom is on the other side of pain.
It may seem as though darkness is winning;
but look closely.
Facing hurt
leads to
peace.

This is Who I am

By |December 18th, 2013|Anti-Stigma, Bullying, Current Events, Introspection, Life, Society, Stereotypes, Stigma|Comments Off on This is Who I am

I suffer from schizophrenia…

Now I realize a lot of people’s reaction to that will be ‘knife-wielding maniac’, ‘Norman Bates’, ‘Hannibal Lecter’ or even ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.

Trust me when I tell you ‘I’ve heard them all before’. Now, don’t get me […]

The Waters of Life

By |December 7th, 2013|Hope, Insight, Life, Philosophical, Salvation, Spiritual|Comments Off on The Waters of Life

Plunge
into
the joyous
waters of life.
Nourish compassion
with graceful fountains of
love, replenished with caring.
Bathe in the light of awareness.
Drench your soul with spirit’s sense of peace.
Shine forever, cleansed by raindrops of hope.

me

By |October 16th, 2013|Insight, Introspection, Life, Medication, Sanity, Senses, Society|Comments Off on me

I am the sound of rattling pill bottles.
I am the emptying of your bank account.
I am a million unused memberships.
I am broken bottles scattered across a playground on the nice side of town.

I am every missed call you had that […]

Shattered

By |July 29th, 2013|Consciousness, Life, Loss, Recovery, Sanity, Senses, Shame, Soul, Trapped|Comments Off on Shattered

I see the life,
I used to know,
Out of the corner of my eye,
The endless possibility and the pain.
The beauty and nobility,
The men and the women.
I feel the peace of life,
Enfold me in the gentle rain.
I see my soul,
In the leaves […]

I’m Sick not Unemployed

By |June 22nd, 2013|Anti-Stigma, Current Events, Empowerment, Life, Political, Society, Unemployment|Comments Off on I’m Sick not Unemployed

I’m in receipt of E.S.A.
It’s not the way
I should be paid.
To apply full academic rigour
The word “employment”
Should not figure,
In any benefit I receive.
It seems they’re trying
To deceive.
One day I’ll get
Universal Credit,
And there’ll be no LIE-
Well there, I’ve said it!

Stand Up To The Voices

By |June 13th, 2013|Empowerment, Hope, Insight, Life, Philosophical, Recovery, Suicide, Voices|Comments Off on Stand Up To The Voices

Talk to the voices sensibly,
Let them know what you think,
Take it on board and then let it go,
Otherwise you will sink.
Stand up to these audio hallucinations,
And remove their authority,
Over you and your senses,
And if it becomes too much, just let […]

Deaf Ears / Voices of the Lost

By |June 4th, 2013|Consciousness, Dreams, Imagination, Insight, Introspection, Life, Lonely, Loss, Nature, Spiritual, Voices|Comments Off on Deaf Ears / Voices of the Lost

Darkness falls over the land.
Speech is lost.
Deaf ears hear voices of the lost.
We speak with thick tongues and our voices are those of the message.
To receive, to deny, we care not, only that you hear us, we who are lost. […]

There’s Hope

By |April 19th, 2013|Hope, Inspirational, Life, Spiritual|Comments Off on There’s Hope

Hopefulness appears in the frozen
shards of disaster when tears flow like a
river back to the sea. Hope exists on a
mountaintop as a climber reaches
its summit after his perilous journey.
There’s hope in charity,
therein the over-pouring of kindness
for a stranger in need.
It […]

Idealism

By |April 15th, 2013|Insight, Introspection, Life, Philosophical, Political, Uncategorized|Comments Off on Idealism

Schizophrenia is often
idealised by the desire to
know the law of God and a
love for spiritual gifts, or the
hatred of money and power.
It’s a state of opposites, or
so it seems, as poverty is
compounded by the
philosophy of ‘saints’.
Yet nobody believes in
their badges […]
