By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. – Oscar Wilde



I didn’t fall in love with you,

I walked into love with you,

with my eyes wide open,

choosing to take every step along the way.

I do believe in fate and destiny.

But I also believe, we are only fated,

to do the things that we’d choose anyway.

And I’d choose you,

in a hundred lifetimes,

in a hundred worlds,

in any version of reality…

I’d find you and I’d choose you.


A Smile

A smile is all it can take,

to take my breath away.


– J Pickles 2015


Life is brighter on the other side,

away from all the fears and hurt inside.

You dragged me down but not no more,

you’ve moved on to the person you were before.

All the hate and pain inside,

has disappeared in the morning light.

Today it seems is a brand new day,

when you took all the pain away.

Past and Future

Past is past, you leave it behind.

All that pain and anger inside.

A smile on your face is all it takes,

to make a start to a brand new day.

With your head held high, you storm on.

Away from all the bad times you’ve been going through.

They’re gone now so it’s all okay,

you’re free to be anything you could ever dream.

So take the leap, you might just make it….

Dream Big

As I lie here in the green grass filled with beautiful little buttercups, the sun beaming down from the bright blue sky, headphones on listening to soothing, slow music. Whilst laying there, watching the birds fly by, hearing the children laughing and screaming on the park I realise something…do I really need to be the person other people want me to be? No, I don’t. I will make the choice I want to in life, I want to be the one who wants to fall in love, travel the world, get the job I’ve always dreamed of and become successful. I want all those things, it’s just getting them is the hard part.

There’s been highs and lows in my life, difficult times that have brought me to the lowest I could be, but pulling through has been the best thing I could ever have done. I’ve got my family close by, my friends there when I need them, and a boyfriend that makes me smile every single day.

He’s always there when I need a helping hand, or a shoulder to cry on or someone to make me laugh until my insides hurt. I’m glad he’s by my side with me through the times when I wished I wasn’t on this earth anymore. I hope he is with me for as far into the future as I can imagine, he makes me complete.

As I stand up to go back to the car, grabbing my bag and blanket off the grass, I notice a big black cloud moving slowly across the sky, threatening to cause a storm. I really don’t fancy getting soaked in my new clothes, so I pick up the pace in order to get back quicker. It wasn’t that far away, five minutes or so maybe. It’s getting closer, ok let’s run!

I made it to the car, phew! I do love my car though, a vintage mini cooper in red, just like the one out of the Italian Job! Getting back to the house I had a little thought. Hmm…shower and pj time? I think so! Heading upstairs I walk down the hall reminiscing on the memories on the walls. Pictures of family and nights out with friends, I love walking past them, they put a smile on my face. As I walk further down the hall, I hear a strange noise. “is that my alarm?” I think to myself, and it is! Ringing pretty loudly actually. I run into my bedroom to switch it off, sat on my bed trying to remember which switch it is, and then…

I wake up. What just happened? I thought that was all real, it seemed so real.  But that’s the life I only dream of, I don’t live it.

Finding Yourself

How do you begin to find yourself? To find out who you are and what you are put on this earth to do?…How does anyone know for sure how their life is going to turn out? Not everyone is gifted enough to see the future, very few are.

I’ve always wondered how individuals would find their feet and figure out who they really are. I’ve come to discover that some people choose to find themselves through alcohol and holidays in the sun, some choose to delve into books and only look up to acknowledge those who matter the most, where-as some people choose to throw themselves straight into the working world.

They all seem to work for everyone…but how do you choose which one is right for you? How do you decipher which will bring out the best in you? Does anybody really know how to do it? Maybe we just fall into place and go with what comes along, living life one day at a time, and making it through the trials and tribulations that are thrown at us.

There seem to be a lot of unanswered questions here…but I’m not sure there is anyone that is able to give the right answer. Only we know for sure who we want to be…it’s our future, our destiny and our ambitions. It’s up to us to discover them and thrive from the success that awaits us all!

Men are from Mars, maybe? – A Girls Perspective

Every girl in the world wants that one guy that makes them feel like you are the only girl for them, that hugs you and instantly everything seems so much better, the feeling of safety when your around them, the constant smile that creeps up on your face when they text or you see them walking towards you with a glint in their eye. You know that feeling when you just feel complete, that nothing could ever go wrong in your life again? I think that is the best feeling in the world.

Yet boys are a species I’m still failing to understand, like why they do the things they do to impress you, why the things happen that hurt you, why they run away from the problems when it’s really just making them worse. But it makes you think a little…are they really worth your tears? I mean does anybody really know what love is? Is it a mix of things or just one thing that makes that word meaningful? Nobody really knows..yet every person at one point has said ‘I love you’ to at least one important person in their life.

The motto I stick to is “If it’s worth fighting for..fight until you can fight no more.”

^That works for me, but you might be different. But as long as that one person makes you happy, whether it be male or female, they’re worth it. So keep fighting! And if they don’t realise how hard your trying to make it work, then maybe it’s not worth the fight any more. Maybe it’s time to find someone who IS worth it.
