# The Ebb and The Storm……a Poem by Rackara

Slow rise, Low falls. A subtle dance of waves at dawn. The late night haze fades as the morning breeze sleighs in. The gulls remind thee of the life in the barrens. I feel ur icy embrace on my heart, Reaching out across the gulf of the forgotten Your voice speaks out from the silence…

The average female has 10 days a month

This month, I will probably have 10 or less days. Today morning while struggling to keep attentive during the internal medicine class, I thought to myself…..how many uninterrupted days can a female have in a month?.

YOU ARE A BIG DEAL

When approached by a colleague to write an article for the school magazine of a certain Girl’s secondary school. I wrote them this. Felt the need to share. Enjoy! If I had a chance to be 15 again, I would be a different girl than I am today at 22. Not to say that am…

My No option moments……part 1

While touring and sight seeing in Capetown early this year in the company of two friends, we took enough pictures and made countless videos, that we didn’t notice our phone batteries drain to 0% . none of us had carried a power bank. By that time, around 3:30pm, we had reached HOUT BAY, a suburb…
