Afire loveby Jill Namatsi I have not given up waiting for afire love,Not even in a world bogged down in the fear of the unknown,Beaming day in day out, certain that I am not forgotten. So I am uprightly waiting,For the one who will crouch to tie the straps…
“As you learn and unlearn simple and complex minds, and complex and fierce worlds,
Remember there is a space just for you, just as you are.”
To move on is not to give up, for you must always try until you cannot try anymore,
To move on is not to abandon a loved one, for just as you will be ok, so will they,
To move is not to be vindictive, for one can only truly move on after true forgiveness and letting things go.
People abandoned by their parents and/ or significant others are often so wounded that they don’t realise they have been in survival mode for too long.More
