.underneath

You ask me where I come from. What I’ve done. Where I’ve been. Who I am.  I could write about my childhood…. growing up in a household with parents who don’t know what love is. With siblings that follow suit. I could tell you about the endless days and nights where I cried alone inContinue reading “.underneath”

.then to now

Going through the words, poems, stories and memories that I have recorded on paper over the past few  years can make my heart tremble at times. The pain that drenched so many of my days still lingers silently in the background of my mind. Inside of me: Every moment, every day navigating through; trying toContinue reading “.then to now”

.sometimes

sometimes we wonder sometimes we wander sometimes we stay in one place often times we worry often times we scurry through the days in our current time and space our hearts do the feeling our minds do the thinking our souls doing all and everything in-between but, who do we follow? who do we need?Continue reading “.sometimes”

.escalate your mind

High tide Purple mountain Revolution pride… Dirty water Smokey skies Transcending into time… Walking through the rivers Elevating minds Take the time to escalate All it is you find Lonely sidewalks sliding They all know my name Traveled on before hand… In this never ending game Roaring waters pushing Bouncing back in time Crimson cloudsContinue reading “.escalate your mind”

.i’m not sorry

Someone close to me recently pointed out how I apologize for things that are both in and out of my control. He pointed it out often, until I started to notice myself… Yesterday I counted 42 times before the day was over. Why am I so sorry? Truth is, I’ve been programmed to wish IContinue reading “.i’m not sorry”

.broken toys

The little girl who grew up too fast Always picking up the mess after others… She learned to be a servant first And not to forget to wear her plastic smile She played with beaten down toys And grew up surrounding herself With broken boys Always hoping to fix them… She didn’t realize until itContinue reading “.broken toys”

.invisible light

In the midst of an endless night Was a sliver of invisible light It grew as my faith in it did And as much as I envisioned it enveloping me It overflowed from within… Before long the night had disappeared And the invisible light shined so bright That it escaped through my eyes And intoContinue reading “.invisible light”

.the beat

A sweet supple sound that slowly penetrates my soul. The hum of the bass behind the melody Slowly stirring up a warmth I once forgot existed Opening my eyes and seeing the truth Feeling the beat Swaying my hips and letting my eyes close once again… Lost in my mind with the lyrics that preachContinue reading “.the beat”

.time and change

Right when I thought I knew who I was…. as quickly as the tides change, I realize that just today I am different than yesterday. Its crazy how quickly we can morph into something we never thought we would. Not necessarily because we are opposed to it, but because it was never something we thoughtContinue reading “.time and change”

.paint your picture

Picture this….. You’re here because of where you’ve been. You’ve been where you had to be to get you where you are. You don’t like where you are so you continue to move. You move forward to continue your path. And down the road you’ll get to where you’ll get because of where you areContinue reading “.paint your picture”
