Pieces of Sheeki86

Born to parents addicted to cocaine, growing up, my fight to survive appeared endless. As I began to feel, I went through years of denial, emotional battles, pointless relationships, confusion, brokenness, you name it. My desire to heal, came one bitter night, more than 800 miles from my hometown. Alone and defeated, I lied in a fetal position, replaying, yet another failed attempt to decide my fate.
It took some time, but I learned, healing is a process. A process according to oneself. And most times, we don’t realize we need to heal from something, until we are broken beyond recognition. Or until we’ve done something, those closest to us, can’t fathom.
As a Mental Health Professional, continuing to heal; Broken Masterpiece is inspired by the strength and courage to overcome, a life filled with unimaginable calamity. Whatever your calamity is, it may have held in the palm of its hand, destructive choices, shaped by experiences. The fine line between suicide attempts, and cries for help.
Broken Masterpiece provides educational resources, and tools, for several psychological issues, including, but not limited to; sexual abuse, depression, bipolar disorder, emotional regulation, addiction, and PTSD. While giving insight to my own personal battles, this blog dives in to the uncomfortable places, and issues, that so deeply deserve dialog.
OH! and ONE last thing ! If you remember nothing else, remember—— you aren’t alone.
Thank You For Reading!!!!

  1. I’m glad you have your poetry as a way to express yourself. I use my blog to sort things out, too. I used to write in a journal but blogging is more enriching because I meet people along the way that inspire me — such as yourself.

    1. Preciate your comment as well as the reassurance you’ve provided. I always hoped I could help someone through my writing. Even if it’s just one person. 🙂

  2. Double ditto..I journaled, and writing down releashed me in ways which was more freeing than talking about it. Once written however, I rarely look back, no it’s not cause I can’t read my handwriting, LOL, but it’s like once stated, it as if the log is off my back, or a release of at least relief if but for the day. I’m transferring over to Word Press because my other blog I’ve been on for over 2 years may be taken off line. I like this one, less social, however, very classy and professional options. Thanks again, I at least have a place to read wonderful gifted writings.
    Thanks for dropping by the other day on my blog. Most appreciated. All is new still, and I’m learning each day how to get around. Blessings to you, Mama C

    1. If you have any questions just ask me. I’m not expert but i can help. lol Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate you taking the time to read. I’ve found this blog to be very therapeutic. 🙂

  3. Your poetry is really touching. My mother suffered from depression for as long as I can remember. it was difficult to see her suffer something so personal and private. Thanks for following my blog. I’ll be checking in with yours often. –DenaWeigel Bell

    1. It is definitely crippling. But getting help and gaining understanding helps one with the daily pressures in which they face. Thank You for checking me out and thank you for your insight and comment.

  4. I am just wondering if you are single? I was the way that you are now in my early 20’s, but after having kids I realized that life was so much more three dimensional than I thought at that point and I was actually literally like stuck in a rut that I could not see over the edge of. Now with my 7 year old I see that that are so many mote ways to give back… He is athletic. He opens peoples’ Christmas gifts. He helps my mother garden and hang Christmas ornaments. He brings school work home that pleases me and my private time has become more dimensional and glorious…sun in my living room, a sandwhich at the c a f e… a bag packed for the gym…that kind of thing.

    1. Thanks for coming by – Yes I’m single but you should know; the majority of my writing reflects how I once felt. They’re meant to show all I’ve gone through to understand what I had to overcome. I could never see happiness, then i got a glimpse, but I could not hold on. I had to learn how to be happy. I had to learn how to love myself. A lot of what I write is something I’ve worked through. One of the ways I give back is by writing, I’m letting others know they aren’t alone, as so yourself. Thanks 🙂

      1. I was going to follow your blog, but then I saw that you had written a swear in it. I am a mother. I like your poetry and your writing style. I hope that you have a beautiful day.

  5. I want to say a much-belated yet still-relevant “thank you” for following “A Way With Words.” My joy in writing is made more complete when people read what I’ve written (and even more when they respond).

    I write primarily about faith and mental illness, but am known to dabble in other subjects, stories, and even the occasional poem. If you have any requests, please let me know.

    I appreciate your poetic efforts here and pray you are blessed in your life and writing, as you bless others.

  8. This is beautiful. Poetry is my way of speaking out what buried within. I lost my mama at 3 and was sexually abused by a step uncle from as far as i can remember until about the age of 11. I now continue to heal. Much love.
