I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Psalm 9

I try to sing Your praises,
But all that comes forth are the same old clichés.

From my pinkie toe to the top of my head
Does my body radiate praises to You.

You have destroyed the Powerful-
Do not destroy me!

You have remembered the needy-
Remember me!

May all remember who You are
And may we remember who we are also.

May we not destroy anymore,
But grow to love Your ways more and more,

For those that destroy will eventually be destroyed
And those that love will find peace.

To compare, click here I picked up two poetry publications that tell about the latest contests and I think I might submit a few of my poems. If anyone has any constructive criticism about my poetry, don't be shy!

  1. Wow...I love this idea, your own personal Psalms.
    My fav part: From my pinkie toe to the top of my head
    Does my body radiate praises to You.
