You Could Have Given Up

You could have given up,
but you kept on going.
You could have seen obstacles,
but you called them adventures.
You could have called them weeds,
but instead you called them wildflowers.
You could have died a caterpillar,
but you fought on to be a butterfly.
You could have denied yourself goodness,
but instead you chose to show
yourself self-love. You could have defined
yourself by the dark days, but instead
through them you realised your light.

After experiencing her first and late miscarriage in early 2016, her world forever changed and has been a catalyst for a new wave of art and writing in her work. She thoroughly enjoys making beautiful things for the beautiful folk that support and follow her work.
