“From One who says, “Don’t cry. You’ll like it after a while.”and Two who tells you thank-you after the fact and cant look at your face.To Three who pays for your breakfast and a cab home and your mother’s rent.To Four who says, “But you felt so good I didn’t know how to stop.”To Five who says giving your body is tough but something you do very well.To Six Who smells of tobacco and says “Come on, I can feel that you love this.”To those who feel bad in the morning yes, some feel bad in the morning and sometimes they tell you you want it and sometimes you think that you do.Thank heavens you’re resetting ever setting and resetting.How else do you sew up the tears?How else can the body survive?”
title poem from Yrsa Daley-Ward, ‘bone.’

This had me in tears at 01:45… This had me crying with a lump in my throat, not just for myself, but for everything wrong in the world, for everyone huting in the worl, for everyone who has gone through this burden…
i just… man i just can’t.

YAAAAAAAS!!! Slayin Goliaths on the Daily
A While ago, I was invited by #IAmSouthAfrican on #ANN7 to speak about my depression…
I keep watching this and I realize how far I’ve come, and that make the journey ahead of me so much more easier to face.
Depression is not just a mood switch, you can’t just “get over it” i’m blessed that i am able to manage it and live with it. I have my highs and my lows and i let myself be…
I just wish everyone took #Depression seriously and can take a minute to look around them and pay attention to the people around them. It’s not easy to reach out for help when you’re depressed… so take time out love, pay attention to those around you.
“give your daughters difficult names. give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. my name makes you want to tell me the truth. my name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.”
