The First Post Challenge

You  know  me  I love  a challenge!

First  of  all I  want  to  say  thank  you  to Theya Catalan  for nominating me for


The rules:

  • link your first post
  • name the type of the post
  • explain why this was your first post (reason for writing)
  • nominate fellow bloggers to participate in the challenge

So here is my first blog post ever:

This is  my space 

This is my space, don’t intrude.

It’s all that I have left, my safe place so don’t be rude.

It is dark out there and it is a hurtful place.

Don’t come near or I shall scratch your face.

This is all that I have to call my own.

Out there it’s hurt and fear and there is no way home.

The noise out there is endless and the bullying never stops.

The insults hurt they stick like dirt and they won’t wash off with the raindrops.

The ties that bind infect my mind, self blame becomes my crown

I am lost and so confused not knowing up from down.

I will not move I am protected here.

I am warm, tired and full of fear

Self loathing gnaws at my very being.

Something watches me, something all seeing.

The voices full of reproach and disdain

Claw at my bones and all is pain.

I want to move, I need to hide

I have nothing left. No will, no pride.

I wish that I was tiny, too small to see.

I could hide and recover and maybe I could be free.

I am tired of blame and threats. I am lost and in need of a mother.

Mine is long gone sadly, you only get one, no chance of another.


1What type  of  post  was it?

An angry  and  hurt post, an immature  post,  a  post unsure  of  what  it  really  was  trying to say. It  was  though  an honest  post full of  the pain  and  angst  that I was feeling  at  the time.

2 explain why this was your first post (reason for writing)

After  my  acident   and  time in  hospital I  was hurt  mentally  and physically. I  was angry  that I had  to  retire  from  my  job and  by  how  so  many  people  who  I  had  thought to be  good  friends  had  dropped  me  because  I  could  not  get  around  as used  to.

I found  it  very  hard  to  cope  with  the pain  and  the  fear  that I  might  never  be  the  same  again. I had  a lot of  pain  to  deal  with  and I  was on a huge  drug  regime. Nothing seemed  to  work and  drug  changes  made  things  even  worse. Eventually  I was  refered to  the pain clinic  at  the hospital  in my  area. After  several  visits I was  refered  to to  see  the  pain  physcologist.

This  was  a lucky  day  for  me, she encouraged  me  to  write out  my  pain, fears  and feelings in poetry. Start  a  blog  she  said …. so I  took  her  advice. I  thank her  often.
