The challenge of overcoming fear

allowing oneself to get closer to the edge

to summon all that the mind takes exception to


Means crossing an invisible line


Fighting the light that will break the dark

Being lonely amongst others

Is hard to digest


Trust once broken

leaves an emptiness that cannot be filled.

until human contact is made again


How we stay quiet

when the urge to scream becomes overbearing

can be brave – usually a safety valve in the recesses of thought


Unhealthy quiet control

can be like a steam locomotive


Remembering these times

I cry:  Someone loves you


Fallen Poet

This poem was written by a young forgotten Japanese poet named Misuzu Kaneko (April 11, 1903–March 10, 1930).


If I say, “Let’s play?”
you say, “Let’s play!”

If I say, “Stupid!”
you say, “Stupid!”

If I say, “I don’t want to play anymore,”
you say, “I don’t want to play anymore.”

And then, after a while,
becoming lonely

I say, “Sorry.”
You say, “Sorry.”

Are you just an echo?
No, you are everyone.

My heart is bursting!

I have been so fortunate, not only with having a dream come true but to have the support and friendship of awesome people such as Trideep ( T ) and George at Cinque Lire at Monash University.

Friendship is possibly the greatest thing on earth!

There is a limited amount of time

between the stages in life

childhood………adolesence………. maturity

Milestones that connect and overlap

Threaded dimentions interlocking with other human emotional stages


Repeated painful cycles periodically occuring

over and over

through stages of life that we cannot understand


No proof of their existence

No denial of their existence

Only self testimony after realisation of their existence


If only the badge we place upon ourselves could be changed

We could feel like the goal keeper

Like those who found the warrior within

who learned control
