Rooted to the Truth

I am rooted in your history, our paths intertwined. The awakening of humanity; opening hearts to injustice souls connecting through time. Liberation through freedom, voices aligning through love. Change is not a dream, but a truth to be lived. ¬© Manivillie Kanagasabapathy AN: A¬†collaboration with one of my favourite artist - the always amazing Thiviyaa… Continue reading Rooted to the Truth

Gemini Moon

Shadows exist because of the light. The more you shine, the deeper the shadow. The greater the darkness, the more you illuminate. ¬© Manivillie Kanagasabapathy AN: Another piece inspired by the new moon workshop - I share my work in the group and usually challenge myself to write something new for the group. The Gemini… Continue reading Gemini Moon

Chakra Opening

Who knew that waking up could be so exhausting? That leaving the material world behind would claw away at your reserves? I forgot... that when you open your eyes, you not only begin to see, but start receiving. You awaken from the deepest sleep, surrendering all free will. Realizing that there is only one that… Continue reading Chakra Opening

Pink Moon

In this moment you are reborn, discarding the skin you wore; for the comfort of others, while denying your true force. In this light you shine, casting away the shadows that cling to your power, rebalancing the scales. In this night you find sanctuary, in the solace of your soul. Untangling the webs of reality… Continue reading Pink Moon

Your Greatest Lesson

You taught me how to get over you. My heart stopped racing with every text, no longer hurting when they weren't yours. I stopped expecting to be your first or last thought, making peace with being an afterthought. I learned not to listen for your concern no longer replaying words for hidden messages. My tongue… Continue reading Your Greatest Lesson

30/2017: Break

I can see them try to break you, this other, a thing that exists outside the comfort of what they think they know too scared to see you and their face reflected in your eyes. To look those powerful eyes, that allow no lies, and ask them to stare at the hate that they made… Continue reading 30/2017: Break

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

Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

We are together in every moment, by my side, you may not stay, the heart does not see any distance, nor any debts to repay. Bound not rules of obligation, but strands formed from love and memories, and then further fortified by passion, a rope built with shared stories. Pull the cord as far as… Continue reading Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

Day 360: Joyful Sounds

A day of respite, from the troubles of yesterday, a moment with loved ones, to show how they brighten your way. It's the silence, that follows a thoughtful meal, the looks of contentment, that need no words of hurray. A warm laugh, followed by a loving touch, for jokes heard too often but that sound… Continue reading Day 360: Joyful Sounds

Day 358: The Moon’s Awakening

Cast in the silvery glow of the moon, I see the truths I kept hidden, the lies I took comfort in believing and the people who found joy in my pain. Cast in the silvery ray of the moon, I see the silver threads of power in my skin, the light of the universe reflected… Continue reading Day 358: The Moon’s Awakening
