Reality Revisited: Perfectly Untouched
When my Mum passed away, I willed my life to stay exactly how she left it – perfectly untouched like the crisp layer of newly fallen snow, blanketing my life.

Something that I had missed before, like an echoing smile.
I walk in my loving, sweet Danse Macabre,

Shrunken shoulders, bent in pain
Sadness and tears unrestrained

Reality Revisited: Under Pressure

Advocating for Self
