Between My Bleeding Lines’ Readers: NJ

Dear Bravery

Dear Bravery,

Why do you hide? Do not be afraid of me. Me being around is not necessarily a bad thing. I am good at times and needed too. But if you hide and disappear and vanish into the darkness, the humans we reside in will see no light. They will forever be a friend of the darkness. You need to show up with your friend courage and help the humans move forward. Take them through it all slowly and help them in times of their need. You see, I am not permanent. But I could be, if the humans allow me to. Do not let them. Do not let them make me a permanent home in their beings. If I do, then I will live in them forever and that’s not good. They need you more than they need me. So, please, do not hide.



NJ is the epitome of so much in so few and there is nothing more beautiful than raw. She writes poetry with brevity and depth. But when she writes long poems, you cannot help but be lost on how her words cascade. (please do check her out). Her feedback on my book means so much to me as she is one of my fave writers too. 🌹
Thank you for the looove, sweetie. ❤

(As the release of my BETWEEN MY BLEEDING LINES nears (this month!), I would like to feature the amazing writers who guided me (technically and morally) all through out this nine-month journey. I am blessed to have them.)

  1. Rose!😄 Another great piece. Have you seen the film Inside Out? It’s a children’s movie but honestly the movie has a lot of truth for adults. It about joy resisting sadness because she thinks her human will be better off just being happy all the time. Just like with you piece, joy learns that sadness has a role to play. I hope bravery can learn the same thing. 😊

  2. This is beautiful wanting to brace for bravery not to desert the speaker and to slowly reach him/her to be as brave as they can be. I laughed b/c on my phone it split the word Bravery into ‘Bra’ and then ‘very’ so what caught my attention first after the beautiful picture was the word ‘Bra’ and I wondered what that had to do with the picture until I opened the email link and the read poem.
    It’s lovely 🙂

      1. Haha you’re welcome. I think it’s a good poem idea for Rosema in the future ‘The Very Good Bra’ she was very Brave to write of 🙂
