Day 366: The End

A journey started with trepidation, the weight of so much expectation. How could I have said yes to this year, was I drunk?! It's a bit unclear! Three hundred and sixty-six days to complete, a challenge that is a bit too bittersweet. For finding my voice and words once more, means accepting I had thrown… Continue reading Day 366: The End

If I can survive this night, my heart intact, then maybe I will, finally,… Continue reading Day 307: Stumble

Day 261: Trials of the Chosen

Strength is in survival, they say As if these words will save the day. For scars drawn across the heart by God, are somehow more revered and awed.
