The Tongue and the Pen: A Thought for World Mental Health Day

In honor of World Mental Health Day, I am sharing a thought that came to mind this morning and I am working to turn into a poem or thought piece.

Poetry: See Me

Originally a blog post I wrote in 2016, “See Me” became my first spoken word poem and one of my favorite pieces from “When I Stopped Remembering Tomorrow” my poetry and reflection book about not scripting life. It’s long and it’s a wild trip inside my life, but if you allow it to speak to you, my pain and healing can become your freedom too.

Poetry: The Thoughts Between the Pillows (After Colin Tan)

An “After” of Colin Tan’s “Reflection” poem.

Poetry: The Homeless Man

A poem from the archives of my notebooks.

Poetry: The Dance

Every exchange we enter into, regardless of how simple or short, leaves an impression. This is a poem about the impact our encounters have on others and ourselves.

Poetry: 3:02 AM

I’ve been playing around with a new poem and trying this editing thing I’ve heard so much about when it comes to poetry. I usually write and post, never looking back to rework lines or improve my writing. New year, new process.

How do you work through your poetry? One and done or rework until perfect?

Poetry: Wondering

A poem that shares inner thoughts from a time when I was still in an abusive relationship. There much more to the equation when you are in it than “just leave”.

Poetry: 3:33

A late-night poem about moving forward and going back.

Poetry: Willpower

Willpower is a poem about the contrast of my simple sacrifices that I fail to make compared to Christ’s love for me and the ultimate sacrifice He made.
