Day Eighty One: 12th October 2012


Day 81,
An ongoing sojourn,
Into a world of words and mark making,
Confessing, Cleansing, Purging.
And after these 1944 hours,
Is my soul lighter, freer, unburdened?
Or am I just trowelling mortar on the walls,
Reinforcing my own battlefront,
Of dismal thoughts of entrapment,
And unrealised ideals?

    • thankyou so much… can you tell me – just out of curiosity – do you like the drawing, the poem, or both together? I was having this discussion with my partner tonight, about what people like… so am just curious!
