The Father’s Heart

I never used to like Father's Day. It used to be a day where everything around me seemed to poke at the broken pieces of my heart — at a raw wound yet to be healed. It used to be a day where I felt nothing but anger. I was unforgiving towards my father, merely… Continue reading The Father’s Heart

I Am Growing.

As a season I thought would break me comes very close to an end, countless thoughts have been stuck on repeat in my mind...
