I live in the desert in Australia in “The Isa”, Mount Isa  for 24 years.  I love living in open spaces, it is a big country with a wild, stark beauty, so alive and untamed. You can be whoever, whatever you want to be, I thrive here. I was born in New Zealand, I grew up at Ohinemutu Village in Rotorua.   We have a strong cultural heritage of storytelling from a young age. I grew up in a traditional society where woman do not speak on the Marae.  Men are the orators and in leadership roles by right of gender. Spiritually, I feel all the resilient, strong woman in my family past and present support me unconditionally.  So, it is a glorious time, to be on the internet and your voice joins the many. Poets share emotions, dreams, insights, triumphs and losses. Poetry found me one night at 3am on the 31.07.2018. I woke with a pervasive feeling of sadness, loss and grief. I started a website: and wrote the poem, "Guarding Angel".

2018 started with travel to Vietnam and New Zealand and ended with the death of my mum, aunt and younger sister. Needless to say this period was an emotional and transformative experience. Through poetry, I can share my thoughts and sometimes I believe I am able to reflect other people's thoughts.  I believe our voice can remove barriers of culture, social, spiritual and even time itself. Through our words we are immortal.

This poem relates to my observations and emotional despair over many years of seeing people addicted to ICE. I see ICE as a vile drug that demonises people, moves their moral compass to do and say the unthinkable.  You know that terrible feeling you have watching a movie and the person is going back in to the house and you know and the audience knows the killer is inside. You yell at the TV don't do it. I hope this poem reads as a cautionary tale.

I also commented on the poem, which I enjoyed. I'm a former drug addict and while I don't agree with all of your opinions in this blog, I understand why you feel the way you do. It's terrible to watch someone become lost in an addiction. ~Much love.
