I have suffered with depression for most of my life. The lack of concentration and confidence associated with depression has affected my life in a big way and I fight it on a daily basis. Like many others, I have often wondered why life has been so cruel to me, why did I have to go through certain situations and circumstances Why me? I believe the answer is because without those experiences, you cannot fully understand and empathise with others.
I started jotting down poems by hand in a book after a relationship break up in June 2015. I set up a Facebook page in August called Just Poetry and started to post my poems and was amazed at the response. I have received the most heartbreaking messages from both women and men going through depression, domestic violence and child abuse and my poetry helped some recognise their situation and get help. I am proud to have helped people through my poetry and hope to continue. I have always been a compassionate and understanding person and I hope my poetry continues to reach people in need of hope and reassurance that their life can change. Often, fear of the unknown holds us back, but is in fact much worse than the reality of change. Be brave, fight the battles and move on to a better life!
I decided to title my first book Dark and Light, and place my poems into the two sections, so it ends on a happier note with uplifting poems.
Life is balanced and I try to reflect this in the book.
I hope you enjoy reading and can relate to a few of my poems!
