Saturday Thoughts

I wrestle with my own mortality. Lost between the coming and going. My brain is in disarray and I find it hard to concentrate. It’s the depression. I wear it like a second skin now Close to my heart. I want to tell you something different this time I want to say that the medication…

Splendid

Thoughts of splendor wrestle with my mind And for the first time today I am happy It creeps in like a vine This happiness of mine Simply delirious I run To the hills and beyond By the the time I have caught my breath I am laughing Shouting for Joy And all those who love…

Music Of The Broken Soul

ShatteredBrokenBare-boned soulBeat me til I feel no moreTake the breath from my lungsWatch me suffocate on your affectionGround up tearsSprinkle with a smileLaughterStiflingWeep no moreFear the lightLet darkness drown meIn a cold worldThat feels no harmLet my chains hit the floorRing aloudListen to the music of a broken soul 

Day 14: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

I know this post is late, forgive me? Yesterday was just so stressful, we are in the process of buying our first house and my goodness the amount of paperwork that we have to go through is astounding. So rather than be stressed out today I decided to do some meditation and stretching. You probably…

The Dismount

It slips in like a silent sinPretending to hold the powerDesire rises on ill-forgotten promises And I am no more than a numberLined across your bedForgive me if you lost countI’ll beg your pardon in my dismount Your sweet words did not gain you consent In a world where the illusion is greater Than the mass I…

Coconut Flour Banana Bread

I am a huge fan of banana nut bread. I love bananas, calories, nuts, and the few pounds that I will gain from over indulging in one too many bites. A few months ago, I had the honor or dishonor to go on a gluten-free diet. It was awful and I am sure those whose…

Day 13: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

Another practice complete and another tired Joy at your service. I have been so tired lately; the fatigue is slowly killing me, I guess. Today was another 23-minute practice with three minutes in the last pose, where I just laid still and breathe. I feel as though today’s practice was heavy on the arms, I…

For The Cause

Repressed and beaten downDo not conform to his kinRun from his arms once moreAnd seek freedom from his crown Resist to your heart’s contentFight for the causeRun to your freedomAnd seek justice For the ones who were before you For the ones you left behind For the ones forgotten And the ones left to cry Claim your cause…

Day 12: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

So Day 12 is a bit late, but for a very good reason: I am a lazy potato in need of food. Just Kidding. I did today’s practice a bit late due to some pain and overall fatigue. It has been a relaxing weekend, but due to the weather acting up, I haven’t been feeling…

Mint Water Detox

How are you doing on this lovely day? For the last two weeks, I have had the pleasure of learning and experimenting with mint leaves. Initially, I bought a mint plant to support my mojito cravings, but it soon became the source of my mint tea. While I have been drinking mint tea for a…
