.your self-proclaimed Eden

You once told me that you no longer recognized me…  Distaste spilled from your mouth as if this was a truth I should somehow have found shame in. But I knew better. Finally, I knew better.  For you see, I am still me. It’s just that when we were together I was made a littleContinue reading “.your self-proclaimed Eden”

.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”

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”

.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”

.why are you waiting?

What makes the world so bright To the small child inside us all? The fear and stress we have Is from being here…. But wanting to be there… It comes from knowledge, faith and hope Of a brighter beautiful way… One that we pray for each and every day Behind your eyes are answers toContinue reading “.why are you waiting?”
