I never changed
I simply became the better version of myself
It’s because of you… Did you know?
The way you never showed any interest in my corrupted side,
instead, you insisted on my virtuous self.
You shone a light on a part of me that I believed I lost.
While picking up the scattered pieces of my being,
You smiled and said, “The broken can be repaired and
The lost can be found.”
You then nobly
held out your hand,
And that was the end,
and also, the beginning

Writer, always Wife and Mother first. Perfect is overrated, I am flawed and yet loved. Now that I don’t chase perfection, I can chase my dreams. I have completed a "Write a Novel" course in 2015 through S.A. Writers’ College and passed with a distinction. I also completed the Copy-Editing and Proof-reading course through them in March 2016. My first Manuscript of 60 000 words has been written and currently seeking a publisher. I have been writing poetry since I was 14 and the reason/inspiration behind all my writing is a stand against women abuse. It is a cause that I hold close to heart. Something that started as an outlet for feelings too ghastly to speak about has turned into my passion.
