it’s okay (new year)

a new year beckons


you once said…

…and i’ll steal a dollar from my momma’s purse and buy you that skull n crossbones ring tie it round round your neck with that old piece of string we found…. and we’ll spit on those bastards and slash the tyres on the school bus and laugh and run away…

now don’t say a word i’ll grab that old piece of wire from that rusty fence n scratch your initials on my wrist….

you once said…

it’s okay

don’t second-guess

it is messy

lying next to my heart

i knew

i’d survive

always a strong grrl


today i sang to myself

and saw that

i am


i’ll always live





If you think it long and mad, the wind of banners that passes through my life, and you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots, remember that on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms and my roots will set off to seek another land.

But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me with implacable sweetness, if each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me, ah my love, ah my own, in me all that fire is repeated, in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten, my love feeds on your love, beloved, and as long as you live it will be in your arms without leaving mine.

~ Pablo Neruda
