Poems & Prayers by one who struggles with words #1


In approximately 5 weeks I have my very first solo exhibition - something both incredibly exciting & scary. Seeing as my exhibition is centred around my experience of chronic ill-health I thought I may as well put it all out there and blog some of my thoughts from the experience in the lead up to the exhibition. It's something that is very difficult to explain so it's all a bit esoteric, so we'll see how this goes...

These 4 weeks of writing come from bits I've re-discovered in journals and random pieces of paper over the course of putting together this exhibition and are either just put up exactly as originally written (more often than not very late at night or early mornings) or very slightly adapted.

Poems & Prayers

in the lead up to my exhibition

Pieces of Self

My life is

not as

I expected.

It

keeps

changing

and I have to keep up.

I am not who

I expected to be.

I

keep

changing

and

I have to keep up.

Am I

a disappointment

a joy

normal

unusual

ok

growing

slumped

stationary

ignorant

progressing

learning

expecting too much

expecting too little

not listening

hearing

living well

making good choices

making bad choices

doing what I can

?
