A fresh heavy towel, drooped over my weightless shoulders, a cotton-like shawl, as my two ever-so-slim legs merrily skipped the sidewalk cracks that were roasting beneath the sun. The diluted chlorine, detectable from a far distance away, was our glowing road sign to heaven; to a location we could splash and rejoice about the simplicitiesContinue reading “Take My Shoe”
If only you would witness the depth of my unconditional love for you. The shirt on my worn-out back, I would toss it away, and my very last breath would be yours so you stay. I will push through, to move things for you, and I will hold on till your troubles are gone. WithContinue reading “Not Stopping!”
Everybody visibly appears so immensely occupied; constantly places to go, but no people to see. Like hummingbirds, chasing sweet nectar before the cold starts settling in, they frantically fly past one another; unable to pause for more than a split second. I watched their display, in silence today, as depressive thoughts continuously cluttered my head.Continue reading “Calm the F Down”
We are only conditioned beings if we refuse to recondition ourselves. We are not victims of our yesterday! We were not born strapped in a stray jacket! We have so-called set values and a pre-determined belief system; true. However, we are also individuals entitled to withdraw from our path and trace our own course. NobodyContinue reading “Vroom Vroom!”
Your venom slithered its way to my lips; constricting my life. I unraveled my beauty, you strengthened your bite. Your scales scratched at my skin and they shredded my soul. I walked in for the kiss, but you swallowed me whole. Your toxicity drips and it poisons my tea; as I wiggle away and attemptContinue reading “Slithering Snake”
If a speck of my heart could reach where you are, you would feel all the love I am sending afar. If a hint of my soul could be by your side, you would see but two paddles battling the tide. If an inch of my arms could embrace you at last, you would knowContinue reading “From Far Away”
I will write till I run out of ink, jotting down every thought that I think. An idea in mind, is not hard to find, when you start off your book with a drink. I will rythme all my words like a song, then rewrite all the lines that sound wrong. My pen drops toContinue reading “Write Right”
You are not responsible for other people’s reactions.
If you haven’t had buckets collecting the rain, or a flat empty stomach starving in pain, you know not the struggle it takes to stay sane. When your fridge it is full, and your pocket is packed, lend a hand out to others to try and give back. Instead you count dimes and your nickles,Continue reading “Give Back”
Cleanse your soul from the bite, rid your heart from the sting, your mind from the blackness inside you. Release all the fear and the anger that steered as it ditched me alone here without you. As you hang for dear life, the walls caving at night, know that I dream of being there forContinue reading “Hurry Home”
Those with faith into crystals walked a well-beaten path, they’ve been through some troubles that others can’t grasp. A rock in your pocket, or hung to your neck, is not magic; it’s simply result of placebo effect. You believe it can heal, bring you love and protect, and with not much hope, it is allContinue reading “Crystal Power”
I can hear the ever so frigidly cold river, trickling in the near distance, as the lumps are released from the strength of the sun beaming down firmly on its stone-like chunks. I can feel an unimaginable sense of pure, meaningful joy, as I witness recently dormant forms of life regaining possession within my coreContinue reading “Spring Portrait”
As your lids start to shut and you doze off to rest, say “today I tried doing my best”.
Goods were shipped out in barrels, as gifts from the queen, nothing reached land prepackaged and ready to eat. The contents were flour and some contained rice; from a split open orange you got just a slice. There wasn’t this place food was sold on a shelf; where selection was made by no more thanContinue reading “Back in the day”
Do things you like doing because you enjoy doing them. You don’t have to be good at everything, and you don’t need the approval of others.
We watched other countries as they covered their face, and thought that the virus would not reach this place. It spread through the world like a viral Tik Tok, and crowded the beds in the hospital blocks. It crawled through the homes of the elderly near, and as cases they climbed we were worried withContinue reading “Our Past Year”
From a country of strength, they sailed to the shore, with little in hand and their babies on board. They left things behind, could not carry much more. The ship it was grand, but the ocean it roared. The waves as they crashed, they all fell to the floor. They grabbed on to things throughContinue reading “An Ocean Away”
They made you and then gave you life. Too poor to be husband and wife. They did all they could, and boy they did good, thanks to them you turned out quite alright . Thanks to them there’s a roof on your head. In the night you can sleep in a bed. When you haveContinue reading “Thanks To Them”
Who cares if you are LGBT or Q, at the end of the day you are still the same you. It does not change the person you are from inside, hold up your head, don’t feel you must hide. Wear what you want, in the colours you choose, cuz the clothes on your body doesContinue reading “B U LGTBQ”
The sweat in your palms and continuous thoughts are the only results from control you have lost. You can’t beat your house, from blowing away, no matter how hard you stand in wind’s way. Thinking of all before shutting your eyes can only amount to torturous times. You toss and you turn, your mind fullyContinue reading “Take the house!”
