Limbo

Hanging in the balance, seeking an emotion any besides sorrow, Hanging in a limbo, recalling memories that shouldn't have been, Hanging by a thin thread, hope pain love bliss, hanged to the ceiling lifeless, Somethings come easy, a smile a grin, a mere facial muscle spasm, Other things arrive with T's & C's, racing mind… Continue reading Limbo

Vie

What does it mean to live? How can we know if we are living or just alive? Questions that often cross my mind: the meaning behind one's existence. Is the act of breathing enough? Do I have to have a reason & motivation behind my actions? Questions that puzzle my mind: will we ever reach… Continue reading Vie

YAH

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not lean your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 ESV The mind seeks to comprehend the mysteries of this world, The heart, to find comfort, a pillar of strength to rest on.

The standard of beauty

Story Time: Growing up, I never liked the way i looked. Felt very insecure about almost everything, from my broad forehead to my finger nails. I felt like a little ugly duckling most of the time. My insecurities were mostly rooted from what I heard and saw around me. In pre-school, a boy not too… Continue reading The standard of beauty

Inner monologue

Stop being so weak, she tells herself, I can't keep getting hurt at the hands of my "love ones", I keep screaming with no response, from anyone Tired of breaking down, she is, It's forever the same story; I am not Ok, I feel like I don't belong, I feel confused and lost When does… Continue reading Inner monologue

I’ll be ok

Out here tryna make it, but you keep clipping my wings, Out here tryna make it, but you keep on shutting down my dreams, I know struggle, I know pain, wondering if this is not hate. See, in the past few years I have tried to understand you, Studied your reasons of actions and being.… Continue reading I’ll be ok
