River

I cried a river in my dreams. I awoke in a puddle of illusion. I see clearly when my mind is focussed on eternity, When I turn and get distracted, I fall deep into my dreams.

Letting Go of the Fear

Fear is inevitable, fear could be the enemy. It could consume your life if you let it. I was afraid for too many years of my life living with my mental illness. Even to this day, when I meet someone new, it takes a minute to get the courage to say I have a mental illness. I guess there will …
