Safe Space


To be alone inside your head

Silent sufferings

Muffled muted screams

Never heard

Never truly seen

Always smiling to please

This is a place no one should belong

Yet for too long I lived there

Day turns nights today into yesterday

Upon waking each morning I pray

Breathing deeply

Accepting reality

Not giving up in my quest

Everyone needs a safe space


For me Its You, my, my safe space…my









My safe space is YOU without hesitation.

….Thank You

Inspired By A Hilary


She came with a rare nervous Energy

She spoke with solid yet seasoned Authority

She taught with an exceptional Excellence

Hilary gave us more than we came for

More than we hoped to gain is what we received

A voice that had been silent inside me awoke in her presence

She humbly dilated my ego which encouraged me to share

This sharing then took me on a whole new journey….

One of discovery and disclosure…

As she grew confidence in her class

Her students confidence also grew

We shared more than we came to give

We learned more than we thought we would

We received more than we could ever imagine

The Seeds That Have Been Planted Now Grow Within Each & Every One of Us…. Including You!

Hilary, with your gift of teaching and being who you were BORN to be, through this medium – you inspire us! More than you will ever know….so please…continue to touch lives, to make that mark, be that baton of knowledged passed on so that we may all WIN!!

The world needs more of this energy!

Thank YOU!
