Memoirs of a Messed-up Mum (extract)

1st January

I am everything

and yet,

I was nothing...

I.

I am streak within stillness

and scent within storm,

with stature of Saturn--

I am twelve feet tall.

II.

I am breeze of heat's wave

that saves sorrow's shoes;

once a bruise of heart's blames

within old twisted truths.

III.

I am Jupiter's soul

with six seeing eyes

that rise within cries

of hardship's duress.

IV.

You are gone with done deeds

etched

into your essence

whilst I am peace

that plays

within the solace

of simple understanding.

V.

You are sorry's stream

of silence

and I am worthy of voice

in a universe

crowded

with cruelty's choice.

I was nothing

and yet,

I am everything...

to me.
