Just to let you know, I probably won't be posting for a while due to exams that I have for the next couple of weeks.

Thanks to you all for reading and taking an interest in my blog.  I appreciate the comments and interest people have shown :)

Hopefully I will be back soon with (I hope) something worth reading...

In the meantime here's a random artistic shot of the day:
This was taken last summer - a local park where I sometimes go cycling or jogging when I'm home from uni...

Also please feel free to leave some suggestions, now you have a feel for my blog, about layout or content...

Unspoken Words

Dear People around me,

Thankyou for showing your concern and asking for my opinion.  I appreciate that you want to hear my point of view.  But please first understand this.

I am a sensitive spirit.  I react easily to the things you say.  I may be in among your social circles, you may think that I am the life of the party.  Let me tell you the truth.

There are times
When I feel like a fragile bird trapped within a cage
The words are there
Eager to escape
They struggle against the bars of social pressure

Times when
Although you may think I am confident
My spirit retreats within me
Do you know how difficult it is?
Do you know how hard
To speak out?

Remnants of an old fear
Never quite dieing
Always lurking
Somewhere in the background...

But please be reassured.
Ask me, please do.
Just don't expect a reply straight away.
I assure you
I will get there eventually.
I hope it was worth waiting for

It is one of those days.
Tomorrow may be different
The bird flies free
Yesterday was the same

But today
I ask for your patience

For tomorrow is a new day
A day of God's grace
Silent mouths will not
Remain silent forever.

Yours Sincerely,

A quiet and retreating spirit.
