Illusions of change (environmental poem)

Yesterday I wanted to save the planet, Today I think it’s us humans who need saving. Trapped in the illusion of our grandeur and our values, It’s easy to forget that Earth has been long-standing. Humanity evolved in time through learning, And inspiration came from all the shapes and sounds around us. Our earthly teachers... Continue Reading →

Dare I? (poem)

Who am I truly underneath, I do not know, Dare I see the real me and love it all? Letting go of familiar roles is not easy, They are comfortable and have their rewards.

I thought I... Continue Reading →

Love yourself (poem)

Open your eyes, and see who doesn’t see you, The ones who think they do but don’t. Don’t try to fit into their fantasy of love it’s tiring, My dear, must you betray your soul? The parts that feel unloved and sad, Deserve to be acknowledged. They might feel ugly and ashamed, But carry hidden... Continue Reading →
